This page is for the nomination of "comprehensive articles." For a list of "comprehensive articles," see Category:Wookieepedia comprehensive articles.


What is a "comprehensive article?"

A "comprehensive article" is an article that contains all information regarding the topic. Often, "comprehensive articles" cannot reach Featured or Good Article status due to their limited content. This process is intended to recognize articles that contain all relevant canon information, yet are still under the 250 word limit required for a Good Article. The purpose of this is twofold—firstly, to help users distinguish what is a stub, and what is merely a short article with no further relevant material to be added, and, more importantly, to highlight for the reader when they are reading something that has been judged definitely "comprehensive"—that is, a guarantee to the reader that whatever they are reading contains the sum total of all available content on that topic.

Nominations and promotions of the Comprehensive article process are overseen by a collective of users known as the "EduCorps," which is made up of the Inquisitorius, the AgriCorps, and various other experienced users who are considered qualified to adequately judge the nominated material.

Lucasfilm Ltd. and its many licensees continue to expand the Star Wars universe. Since new information might become available, it may be necessary to revoke a "comprehensive article's" status. A forum will be used to nominate articles that have fallen out-of-date. Members of the EduCorps will then post a warning template on that page, and a grace period of at least one week will be instituted in which the article can be improved. If there is a significant amount of new information, it is likely that once updated, the article will become eligible for Good article status, and thereby ineligible for Comprehensive article status.

READ THIS FIRST!

An article must…

  1. …be well-written and detailed.
  2. …be unbiased, non-point of view.
  3. …be sourced with all available sources and appearances.
  4. …follow the Manual of Style, Layout Guide, and all other policies on Wookieepedia. This is, of course, within reason. If a topic only has a very limited degree of content that cannot be divided up into the relevant article sections, it is not required that it follow the Layout Guide precisely. This is to be judged on a case-by-case basis.
  5. …following the review process, be stable, i.e., does not change significantly from day to day and is not the subject of ongoing edit wars. This does not apply to vandalism and protection or semi-protection as a result of vandalism.
  6. …not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags (i.e. more sources, expand, etc).
  7. …have no redlinks.
  8. …have all relevant canon information presented.
  9. …be completely referenced for all available material and sources. See Wookieepedia:Sourcing for more information.
  10. …have all quotes and images sourced.
  11. …provide at least one relevant quote on the article if available.
  12. …include a "Behind the scenes" section for in-universe articles.
  13. …include a reasonable number of images of sufficient quality to illustrate the article, if said images are available.
  14. …counting the introduction, the article body, and "Behind the scenes" material, must not exceed 250 words in length (not including captions, quotes, or headers, etc). Any articles exceeding the limit should be taken to the Good article nominations page for consideration.
  15. …if the nominated article reaches 200 words or greater, the nominator must either provide an intro or draft an intro and provide a link to the revision in the nomination, showing that the intro does not elevate the article over 250 words. Exceptions can be made for articles wherein the majority of the text is in the "Behind the scenes" section.
  16. …if an article approaches the 250-word length for Good article nominations, it should not deliberately shortened in order to avoid meeting that word limit.

How to nominate:

  1. First, find an article you find is worthy of comprehensive status. Nominated articles must meet all seventeen requirements stated above.
  2. Add {{CAnom}} at the top of the article you are nominating and save the page. NOTE: If the article you are nominating has been nominated for CA one or more times previously, you will need to specify a new subpage name as a parameter in the template (e.g. {{CAnom|Lorum ipsum (second nomination)}}).
  3. Open the redlink (in a new tab or window, if possible) and fill out the form according to the instructions provided.
  4. Copy the code provided to the bottom of this page.
  5. Purge the article to update the template.
  6. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is good enough; they will then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article in accordance with the established rules.
  7. Nominators and supporters will adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied. Objectors may also make alterations—if there is any reason for contention on a given point, it should be settled in a civil manner in the nomination field itself.
  8. Users may not vote on their own articles.
  9. Each user shall be limited to four active Comprehensive article nominations at any given time. Any additional nominations beyond four will be subject to immediate removal.

How to vote:

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterward, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination.
    • If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved.
  3. As stated above, any objections will be looked upon by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to please the objectors. Do not strike other users' objections; it is up to the objector to review the changes and strike if they are satisfied.
  4. There are several ways in which an article can receive the required number of votes. Within a 48-hour period of nomination, only EduCorps votes will count towards the total, although anyone may choose to vote in that window. If four members of the EduCorps support a nomination in that window [0 to 48 hours post-nomination], and there are no outstanding objections, the article can be considered a "Comprehensive article" and be tagged with the {{Eras|comp}} template 48 hours after the initial nomination. The talk page will also be tagged with the {{CA}} template. When the 48 hours are up, any user's votes will contribute towards the total. If two EduCorps member has voted for an article after a week, three regular votes will be required. After a week, an article can also pass with just three EduCorps votes.
  5. Once a nomination is successful, it will be placed on the Comprehensive article list. Note: Only members of the EduCorps, which includes the members of the AgriCorps and Inquisitorius, are allowed to archive comprehensive article nominations.


All nominations will be considered idle and are subject to instantaneous removal by EduCorps members if objections are not addressed, or at least not answered, after a period of 1 week.

  • Does the source explicitly state that it was used for general purposes?
  • I don't think the fact that it was used by an Imperial informant is enough to have the Galactic Empire as an affiliation in the infobox.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 17:55, April 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Can you give any indication of the timeframe?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 18:34, April 26, 2015 (UTC)
    • Should I use the Lothal year (3272 LY), as this refers to an otherwise Lothal related topic? Or the Five years before Yavin dating method? I was wondering if for topics that otherwise center around Lothal that LY dates be used if possible, but I understand otherwise. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 21:19, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
      • Personally, I think you should probably base it off the Battle of Yavin as the Lothal Year system is more localized. Just make sure you provide adequate referencing for any date that you add.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 01:01, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
        • I mentioned both as one is more universal, but also noted it's relation to the date as it would be listed on Lothal, as this is a Lothal related article. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 01:22, May 5, 2015 (UTC)
          • "around the Lothal Year of 3272 LY." This essentially says: "around the Lothal Year of 3272 Lothal Year."--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:38, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
            • Whoops, a bit of an oversight, apparently, as the reference lacks the extra LY. Edit: Also, should Lothal Yeras have their own pages similar to ABY and BBY years? We have a number of listed years and what happens during them. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 18:12, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
              • I must admit, I don't know too much about the Lothal Year systems. I would lean towards not having articles for Lothal Years, but I think you should ask for opinions from people more familiar with the related material.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:18, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

501st
  • Would a homeworld of Nar Shadda be appropriate in the infobox? 501st dogma(talk) 21:47, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
    • There's nothing really indicating that it was built on Nar Shaddaa. He could have been built elsewhere and brought to the moon and installed by whoever ran the traffic operations, unless you mean to just use Nar Shaddaa as a place of residence, or something. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 16:27, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
      • I was thinking of it as the place of residence, but I'm not set on you adding it. It's up to you. 501st dogma(talk) 16:44, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

  • Which degree of droid is it? Also, I think we can safely add the Nar Shaddaa resident category. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 21:15, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
    • I don't know. The quote in the article, and Ors agreeing to follow his vector, is all that is known about the droid. I'll add the place of residence though, now that there's been an additional voice on the matter. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 21:50, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
      • Well, the Essential Guide to Droids or somesuch source lists the various types, maybe guidance droids will fit into one of those. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 23:32, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
        • I didn't see guidance droids, but the first Essential Guide listed another kind of traffic droid under Municipal. Would that work? And wouldn't Guidance Droid be more like a class of droid? LG and 8-13 are my first droid nominations, but I'm happy to learn. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 23:45, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
          • Yes, that would probably be a similar degree. And what you have about the class looks right. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 23:15, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
          • Sorry to interject here. Clonehunter, the degree is 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th degree. I don't have the book but I'm guessing municipal droids are 5th degree? Also I think municipal would probably be more of the class with landing guidance droid being the model. Manoof (talk) 06:40, April 3, 2015 (UTC)
            • Oh, sorry, I was going by the old Droid Guide, which according to the page didn't have classes. I guess it'd be whatever municipal relate to in regards of class. Class Three could almost work, too. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 18:16, April 3, 2015 (UTC)
              • That's cool, but I think 5 would be better as this would be transportation, non intelligent intensive. Its a simple matter of providing a landing approach based on conditions. 3 would be if there were more social functions needed, which he wouldn't. An example of a 3rd degree droid would be 3PO. Keep in mind I don't have the new guide to droids, and am only going off what the articles here say. Manoof (talk) 19:58, April 3, 2015 (UTC)
                • I'd say that what you say makes more sense. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 04:45, April 4, 2015 (UTC)
                  • Does the guide actually classify landing droids under any degree? I'd be hesitant to classify it without something specific backing the degree up. If the reference is kept, it will need some sort of explanation included as LG318 is not mentioned in the guide.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 17:55, April 4, 2015 (UTC)
Exiled Jedi
  • I fail to see how a reference to pilot droids being 5th degree droids is enough for a landing guidance droid to be identified as the same degree. One flies a ship, while the other just directs a ship to land, which is not really the same thing.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 02:20, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
  • Apologize for the lack of follow-up. 5th degree would be more than fine. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 01:54, May 18, 2015 (UTC)

  • The article gives the impression that the platform was always near Borosk. Unless the novel clearly states that it was a completely stationary platform, I think you should alter the article to state the time that the platform is confirmed to be there. It could easily be a mobile platform that the Remnant brings to battlefields.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:35, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
    • TCSWE's entry has the Hale Return "stationed near the planet Borosk during the Yuuzhan Vong War." By that wording, it's unclear if it was stationed there for the entirety of the war, or only during a period of the war. 501st dogma(talk) 13:52, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
      • The way the article is currently written it makes it sound like the platform was located near Borosk during the entirety of the war.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:21, May 16, 2015 (UTC)
        • Yes, but that is how TCSWE has it too. I'm using pretty much the same wording, expect "stationed" is switched out for "positioned." 501st dogma(talk) 13:48, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

  • If you are going to mention the full release date for one game, you should do it for both for consistency.
  • I don't understand why you only list the pistol in his equipment section.
    • I guess I forgot. Though I wonder if any of the weapons should be listed, as they aren't actually a part of the Droid. We don't have equipment sections in infoboxes for non-droid characters, for example.--Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 18:32, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • The sensor color is infobox-exclusive.
  • Due to the game's graphics, I'm not sure if you can state it outright in the body, but you should at least mention the droid's similarity in appearance to the 3PO series in the BTS.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:30, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
    • I was wondering this too. There's a number of 3PO units walking around various levels, and they're just referred to as Protocol Droids in text. This is the multiplayer version of the droid, who differs in being more limber (For obvious, game mechanic reasons). But I was wondering if the duck test would just apply, as what other kind of protocol droid could it be? I don't even think the graphics would hinder that identification. But, if we can't be for sure, I mentioned it in the BtS now. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 18:32, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
      • After considering this, I think you can say that it was a 3PO-series droid in the body. You should get the model's height from one of the droid books and include it. Make sure to source it using an explanatory reference. I would note in the BTS that he used a model that was used elsewhere in the games.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:29, May 16, 2015 (UTC)
        • His texture is that of the NPCs (And his head). His actual body is that of Kyle Katarn's, as are nearly all of the player model bodies (Not the female ones, obviously). In fact, I wonder if because of that, we can match his height to Katarn's, or if we just consider to be more of a gameplay or technical limitation. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 17:59, May 21, 2015 (UTC)
  • The sourcing for the degree needs an explanatory reference.
  • If he is called a protocol droid, shouldn't he be in the related category? Don't add the third-degree droids category, since protocol droids is a sub-category.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 13:29, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

  • I can't remember if this game had it due to how early it is, but did he have any taunts or audio that he said that is unique to him? Manoof (talk) 08:35, May 20, 2015 (UTC)
    • No. He uses some sound effects from the other protocol droids, though. But that's it. None of the multiplayer characters actually talk. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 03:18, May 21, 2015 (UTC)
      • I thought that was the case, but as I haven't played it for years, just wanted to be sure as some of the later ones did. Manoof (talk) 06:06, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

  • There are a few details from the book that need to be mentioned:
    • The piece used vibrations that were based on Bith biorhythms and brainwaves.
    • It took a week for the music to cause the Bith to have erratic behavior.
    • Every Bith that had violent outbursts attended multiple Shlurr performances.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 21:41, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

  • Based on the RPGseed tamplate's usage, the investigation and related discover doesn't necessarily happen, or does it? I ask since the BTS mentions the players escort the wookiee off-planet, but nothing else. The two should probably be consistent with each other (and obviously the source). Manoof (talk) 08:45, May 20, 2015 (UTC)
    • To interject, RPGseed information is included in the body of articles, which is why we have the template.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 23:15, May 20, 2015 (UTC)
      • To clarify, the BTS says the players escort the wookiee, but nothing on the investigation and outcome thereof. But the article main indicates player involvement with the investigation and outcome, and this needs to be clarified. Manoof (talk) 19:45, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

  • As a heads up, sources go after BTS. :P 501st dogma(talk) 20:25, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
  • It would probably be good to give a timeframe that Vos lived in, just so that we know when Kiffu was capable of supporting life (in this case, a Clone Wars time period will do). 501st dogma(talk) 20:42, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
    • Not a bad idea. I've done it. And since you brought that up, I've also put in an infobox indicating an atmosphere breathable to humans, and I also put in the Human/Kiffar species. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:38, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
      • To build on that, you should say in the body that Voss was a Human/Kifar. Also, I don't think we can say for a fact that Kiffu's atmosphere was breathable by humans, as it is technically possibly that Voss was born/lived in an enclosed structure with an artificial atmosphere. 501st dogma(talk) 16:55, May 20, 2015 (UTC)
        • Yeah, that's good thinking - in a galaxy of fantastical possibilities like what we see in Star Wars, something like that is always possible. I removed it and added the bit about Vos being Human / Kiffar to the body. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:18, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

  • Something to note: it's entirely possible we may be getting more information on this subject in Dark Disciple, due to Vos being one of the two primary characters in the novel. This article may end up exceeding the CA word count by July. I'm leaving this as a comment rather than an objection since this is just a wild guess, but it's something to keep in mind. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:56, May 23, 2015 (UTC)

    • Clonehunter has purchased the book and is awaiting it's delivery. He'll have a look when he gets the book and will let me know. Manoof (talk) 09:02, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

Comments

  • Nobody seems to have the game's guide, so it can't be checked for any mention, direct or otherwise. Additionally I checked a few things in the CSWE (Kyle Katarn, Galak Fyyar for example) and could find no mention anywhere, so Kyle listening to the transmission is possibly not canon (for legends).
