NOTICE: I will, for the most part, only be around on weekends until further notice, and reserve the right to disappear for a few days without formal announcements. So if you have a very general question, you want a really quick response, and you don't see my username on the Recent changes page, you may want to ask another user. If it's a question specific to me, however, I'll get back to you in a couple of days at worst.

need help Edit

hey, its me, beast4012. I need to know how to get to an administrator on this wiki. Thanks

  • You can post on Forum:Administrators' noticeboard. If your message, like the other messages you've left on other talk pages, has anything to do with recruiting people to your wiki or complaining about the administration of another website, your message will be deleted and you will probably be blocked. Also, as I'm not an administrator here, I'm not the right person to ask about anything administrative on this wiki. —Silly Dan (talk) 00:20, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

WEG D6 material Edit

If you need any of the WEG D6 material, I have most of it and can arrange to have you borrow some of the books. Please contact me by sending an email to darth.borehd at gmail dot com.

I'm a big fan of the Charon and the Otherspace module. I'm converting it to run as a SAGA edition campaign.Unsigned comment by Darth borehd (talk • contribs).

  • Thanks, but I have all the WEG material I need. Have fun with your campaign! —Silly Dan (talk) 23:12, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Concerning the Aliens project... Edit

Do i need to do something special to be a part of this project or can i just add my name to the list of members? Thanks, --Talrrivanian JaingHead (Headquarters) 14:58, July 22, 2011 (UTC)

  • You could just add your name to the list. It might be a better idea to pick an article, look into the rules for "Comprehensive", "Good", and "Featured" articles, and get a start on the nomination process before adding your name to the list, however. —Silly Dan (talk) 23:12, July 22, 2011 (UTC)
  • Thanks a bunch!--Talrrivanian JaingHead (Headquarters) 06:56, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

Essay Edit

Hey Dan,

In effort to continue the chronicling of our FA history, I am asking and encouraging you to update your personal FA statistics here please, when time permits. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask, and thanks.—Tommy 9281 Sunday, August 21, 2011, 10:45 UTC

  • The current stats are accurate (unless you only want to list current FAs, in which case Tirog is the only one left.) Cheers, —Silly Dan (talk) 12:56, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
    • Thanks, I wasn't sure.—Tommy 9281 Sunday, August 21, 2011, 12:58 UTC

Request Edit

Hey, Dan. How're ya doing? I have a request for you.

Since we've now reached 100,000 articles, I'm planning on writing an article for Wookieepedia NewsNet reflecting on how we got this far by looking back at the earliest days of the Wook. To that end, I'm contacting as many of the oldest (unflattering term, I know. Sorry) Wookieepedians as possible and asking them to chime in.

This is (intentionally) a pretty broad question, but I'm wondering if you can tell me about your early experiences on the Wook and your impressions of what the site was like during its first couple years. Something longer than a soundbite but shorter than a short story, since I'm hoping to quote as many people as I can. Humor and wit are of course encouraged. If you're interested, go nuts, and if you're not, no worries. Thanks, and have a good day! Menkooroo (talk) 15:44, January 12, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your note. If I can think of anything to add, I'll let you know. Looking forward to the article! —Silly Dan (talk) 04:04, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Blizzard Scout 4Edit

Hi Silly Dan, way back when I notice you deleted a page created by another user as Blizzard Scout 4 and cited the reason as being unverified. I've just found evidence that the name comes from the cancelled Decipher CCG Reflections Gold. Not sure how legit these are but they seem like way too much effort for one person to create as fanon. There's also a wealth of names in the lore sections attributed to previously unidentified characters. Not sure how (or if) we'd source/integrate this into articles but thought you may be interested. See:

and,

Rokkur Shen (talk) 03:37, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

    • I'm afraid I can't remember any other circumstances surrounding a deletion that far back. However, if as your sources indicate it's from a cancelled CCG expansion set, I'd assume the lore from those cards isn't canon unless Leland Chee or a similar Lucasfilm official confirms that that information was entered in the Holocron before the set was cancelled. If it's not there, the information could be mentioned in BTS or in our articles on the Decipher CCG, though. (It's possible that it was deleted because the only sources given at the time were the fan-produced "Virtual Cards" which were approved by Decipher for tournament play but were never approved by Lucasfilm as a source of canon lore -- we had one or two users who were insistent on putting all sorts of unnecessary Virtual Cards info on this wiki.) Anyway, thanks for following this up! —Silly Dan (talk) 13:04, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
      • No problem, I may just have to file it away in things I'd ask Leland if ever given an opportunity. Rokkur Shen (talk) 13:10, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Wookiepédia, version en français Edit

Bonjour Silly Dan, je te contacte car tu semble être l'un des contributeurs francophones de Wookieepedia. Je voulais te faire part de l'existence de Wookiepédia_fr, la "version en français" de ce wiki et par la même occasion t'inviter à venir nous donner un coup de main si le cœur t'en dit :) (création, traduction, organisation...) Ton expérience sur Wookieepedia nous serait d'un grand secours ! A bientôt j'espère Trazeris (talk) 14:40, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

  • Merci beaucoup, mais en fait je comprends français seulement au niveau intermédiare: et pour ça, je dois utiliser un dictionnaire... Alors, je peux lire les pluparts des votres articles et votres discours, mais je ne pense pas que je peux écrire pour Wookiepédia. Mais, bonne chance, et j'espère que la Force soit avec vous. —Silly Dan (talk) 15:10, July 3, 2013 (UTC)
    • (For example, I'm pretty sure that I've mistranslated "Good luck, and may the Force be with you" there.) —Silly Dan (talk) 15:40, July 3, 2013 (UTC)
      • Oh ok. No actually it's a pretty good translation :) Trazeris (talk) 16:02, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Earth system Edit

I'll let you merge in-universe stuff on Earth to the Earth (Star Tours) article (other than possibly Uurtha). However, I think we should keep the Earth system and Indiana Jones's system separate until Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn actually appear in something like Star Tours: The Adventures Continue (i.e., something that is either definitively canon or technical canon instead of flat-out non-canon). I mean, if we merged the two together, we probably would have an even bigger mess on our hands due to their being three other planets in that system that yet to appear in a canon work, as I'm doubtful the wiki allows two infoboxes, and mixing canon with non-canon information is most likely inappropriate.

RE: Transport London Edit

Whoops! Yeah sorry I was copying in the new Star Wars Blog post into the sources of all the relevant articles but sent an email half way through and forgot I'd copied something into to it and overridden the source. Corrected on all effected articles! Ayrehead02 (talk) 16:39, November 22, 2013 (UTC)

Fan sites CTEdit

The TC on the List of fan sites article has been moved to a Consensus track thread due to being mentioned in a policy. Feel free to adjust your vote according to the new points and options introduced. MasterFredCommerce Guild(Whatever) 17:14, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the notice! I think I'll keep my vote where it is. —Silly Dan (talk) 21:24, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Reliable sources TC Edit

Hey, just letting you know that the Reliable sources TC has been amended to redirect the page rather than delete it completely. Cheers, 1358 (Talk) 17:18, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks for letting me know. —Silly Dan (talk) 21:48, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

Urthha Edit

Hi, Dan. I'm going to let you handle any relevant merging for the Urthha article. Thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 19:07, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

  • Sounds good -- I'll get at it this evening. Thanks! —Silly Dan (talk) 20:22, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

Piranha beetle btsEdit

I've reworded the piranha beetle bts since there actually is no contradiction. Trip391 (talk) 17:30, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

  • Yeah, "retcon" is the more appropriate term, since the later source is taken as correct. Thanks! —Silly Dan (talk) 17:31, November 13, 2014 (UTC)
