article nominations

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 A forum will be used to nominate articles that have fallen out-of-date.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 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.


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. …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.
  14. …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.
  15. …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. Instructions on how to archive nominations, successful or otherwise, can be found here. Anyone can archive a nomination—just make sure it has the correct number of votes, has been nominated for at least a week (or 48 hours if there are four EC votes), and that there are absolutely no outstanding objections. If you are not sure how to do this, just ask, and someone will likely be more than willing to help you. Also, if you think you can slip one past us, think again—someone is always watching you.

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.

Please remember to archive your nomination beforehand if you plan on taking it to the Good Article Nominations page.

  • Does the source say Lill is native to Lianna? Or just that the cuisine it was used in was native to the planet?
    • It says a "native puree of lill" which I took to mean the lill was native but I guess that the puree could be? Also added in the word puree. Ayrehead02 (talk) 16:14, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
  • Can you reword the last sentence of the bio a bit? As is, it drags a bit imo. Supreme Emperor (talk) 15:04, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
  • Does the source state it is a spice? Or just that it was a strong flavor in it? Supreme Emperor (talk) 16:51, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
    • I was certain it did say it but looking through again I can't find it anywhere. Changed to additive. Ayrehead02 (talk) 20:04, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
  • There is some more info you can add from the Lola Curich Starport section of Mission to Lianna. Specifically it mentions Lill being coupled with potted meats, VegHash and cereals. Supreme Emperor (talk) 03:05, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
    • Added. Ayrehead02 (talk) 09:40, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
      • There is still more information missing from the Galactic Gourmet's Galaxy Guide section. Supreme Emperor (talk) 14:03, August 8, 2014 (UTC)
        • Added I think. Ayrehead02 (talk) 10:43, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
          • Bit more on page 12 of Mission to Lianna, last sentence of the Galactic Gourmet's Galaxy Guide section. Supreme Emperor (talk) 02:32, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
            • Done? Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:28, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
              • There's also a bit about native cuisine being stuffed in a grain and choya shell, worth mentioning? Supreme Emperor (talk) 04:32, August 29, 2014 (UTC)
                • Oh, I didn't include that as it didn't explicitly state lill was used in those but I've added it now. Ayrehead02 (talk) 08:34, August 29, 2014 (UTC)
  • Watch your spelling, please. favored is the American English version.
    • Hopefully the spell check change will stop that happening again. Ayrehead02 (talk) 16:28, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
  • Please look at your use of punctuation and quotation marks.
    • Should I remove the quotation marks? I'm not sure what our rule on them is. Ayrehead02 (talk) 16:28, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
      • Punctuation always goes within quotation marks, even if the quote itself doesn't have the punctuation. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 18:52, July 30, 2014 (UTC)
  • While it's not outright harmful, please don't capitalize era tags.
  • It's clear that you didn't reload the infobox, since there are still hide parameters. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 15:40, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
    • Those are still in the standard load for the food infobox. Should I remove them? Ayrehead02 (talk) 16:28, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
  • "making it rather unpleasant." What is "it"? There are several things there. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 16:47, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • "the taste as..." same issue here. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 16:47, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

  • Nothing in the article body establishes that the article subject existed during the Rebellion era.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 04:58, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
  • If the source gives any information on the primary species living on Lianna, you should add this information to the article. As it is Liann cuisine, the primary species would eat it.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 20:38, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
    • I've added Human to the infobox and said that Lianna was Human populated in the article. Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:28, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

  2. ECvote Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 20:53, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
  3. ECvote Supreme Emperor (talk) 03:17, August 1, 2014 (UTC)


  • Picky, but the name in the infobox should be italicized. 501st dogma(talk) 18:21, July 9, 2014 (UTC)
  • Please look at your eras. Pre-Republic is not a publishing era.
  • What exactly is the point of this? [[Rail gun|rail guns]]
  • "hired the aid" is not a proper phrase.
  • If the Sakiyans built them, why are they not in the infobox? Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 16:10, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
  • The book was not released by Jason Fry. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 16:56, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • What time does Warfare say that they were used? Before the Republic means before the Republic, and the Hutt Cataclysms were in like 15,000 BBY. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 01:20, August 29, 2014 (UTC
    • It says long before the Hutt Cataclysms and implies they're way older but looking again it doesn't make it explicit that they're older that the Republic so I've removed era. Ayrehead02 (talk) 08:25, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

  • Youmay. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 01:52, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
    • May I? Okay, it's done, sir. Winterz (talk) 01:56, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
  • Context for Tython. Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:36, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
  • I think it might be worth mentioning the other Kejik in the bts as they appear to look exactly the same and could technically be confused for the same character. Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:36, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • All done, sir. Winterz (talk) 21:06, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
  • "...but it is assumed that Kejik speaks Durese because he is a Duros..." Are you the one assuming this? If so, that needs to be taken out as it is speculation. The Duros could have grown up in an orphanage that only spoke basic for all we know. 501st dogma(talk) 14:19, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • Actually the one language we know he isn't speaking to customers is basic, so you can say that instead. Ayrehead02 (talk) 15:27, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
      • Added, though it looks strange. Winterz (talk) 21:06, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
Exiled Jedi
  • You should probably use the TORCite template for citing the Old Republic. There is a generic version that just contains the planet.
  • The way you word the last sentence makes it sound like his robe covered all of his clothing and his boots as well. Please reword.
  • I would say that the robe is more of a grey-blue color or maybe just dark gray.
  • As you mentioned the rest of his clothing, please mention his belt as well.
  • I can't tell from the picture but it looks like he is wearing something on his shoulder.
  • If he doesn't speak Basic you should use the translation quote template.
  • Could you mention whether the other Kejik is on Republic or Imperial Balmorra? Your citation should also mention this.
  • As a note, you should not use contractions in articles. You might also want to be more careful with your linking.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 02:04, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

  • Dat red link. 501st dogma(talk) 22:34, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
    • I thought one redlink was allowed :P. Anyway, done. Winterz (talk) 23:30, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
  • The date should have the TORdates reference as it can't be referenced to the game itself. Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:40, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • Done.
  • Description of the droid's appearance needs to be included in the body and the plating and sensor color should be included in the infobox. Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:40, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • Did all but the sensor stuff, what is that about?!
      • By my understanding sensors is the same as eye color for droids. I could be wrong but that's what it's been in several articles I've gotten to status and no one complained. Ayrehead02 (talk) 23:56, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
  • Use of blaster pistols needs to be included in the body.Ayrehead02 (talk) 12:40, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
    • Dummy me, done! Winterz (talk) 21:01, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
Exiled Jedi
  • The last sentence of the main body seems a little off. Are all the droids said to be modifications of each other? If that is the case, please word the part about it being a weaker version more formally.
    • Done.
  • The first sentence of the BTS makes it sound like all Republic players could complete the quest, please reword.
    • Fixed.
  • Please make it clearer in the BTS that the quest is part of a series.
    • Done.
  • "Though its naming makes the droid series unique, the ragdoll..." What do you mean by ragdoll?
    • Corrected.
  • Is there an applicable quote from Dentiri?
    • No.
  • You are at 202 words, please section the article.
  • I'm sorry, but that image is not very good. Please get a better one.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 23:30, August 27, 2014 (UTC)
    • That image was all I could get, so until there's something better, that one stays. Low-quality image is better than no image at all. Winterz (talk) 02:13, August 28, 2014 (UTC)


  1. If it is an optional quest, should we add that the Jedi character may have participated in it, with relevant Gamemechanics tags? Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 22:12, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

  • Even though it only has one source, you still need to have a {{1stm}} tag.
    • Done
  • You need more information in the body to state that he lived during the Rebellion era. The Galactic Civil War started in 2 BBY, which was before the Rebellion era.
    • On second thought it doesn't mention anything other than the GCW, so I've removed Rebellion era
  • The article is currently at 205 words, so you should section the article.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 03:39, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
