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 A forum will be used to nominate articles that have fallen out-of-date.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

Kiffu/Canon

  • Nominated by: ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:58, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
  • Nomination comments: Pretty much the definition of a simple comprehensive article based on a single source that can't be expanded any further I think. No quote, no image, just a mention in Ultimate Star Wars that it was Vos's homeworld in a list of facts. If I'm not mistaken, no infobox is needed either, since there wouldn't be anything to put in it, other than the name. Everything is sourced. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:58, May 19, 2015 (UTC)

501st
  • 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)
Exiled Jedi
  • Does the source say that Human/Kiffar are a native species to the planet, or does it just mention Vos?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 02:51, May 23, 2015 (UTC)
    • It specifically calls it his "homeworld," but nothing else. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:52, May 23, 2015 (UTC)
      • Well, that is not enough to say that Humans/Kiffar are native to the planet.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 15:09, May 30, 2015 (UTC)
        • Alright, I killed it. ProfessorTofty (talk) 17:03, May 31, 2015 (UTC)
          • Restored based on the latest update to the Databank, which clearly states that it is one of two home planets of the Kiffar species. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:55, June 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • The information about it being one of the two Kiffar homeworlds should be mentioned before Vos.
    • Moved it so that it's mentioned before Vos is. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:16, June 15, 2015 (UTC)
  • As the databank entry added new information in a sparse subject, I believe that it is important enough to be mentioned briefly in the BTS.
  • Per this decision, "human" should not be capitalized in Canon articles.
  • I just want to make sure about this: Does Ultimate Star Wars call Vos a human/Kiffar. From the Kiffar databank entry it sounds like Kiffar are not human.
    • Here's the weird thing - not only does Ultimate Star Wars specifically list his species as "human," the only place that the term "Kiffars" appears is in the book's index for the page that Vos's entry is to be found on, but the word "Kiffar" or "Kiffars" actually does not appear on that page. Or, to put it another way, the entry for him actually specifically describes him as "human," while the idea of him being Kiffar is implied by the index, but not directly stated. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:16, June 15, 2015 (UTC)
      • Does anything specifically call him a Kiffar?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 14:00, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
        • Yes, the Star Wars Databank. I've now sourced the info about him being human to Ultimate Star Wars and Kiffar part to the Databank. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:55, July 5, 2015 (UTC)
  • From just the databank entry, I do not believe that you can say that humans were a native species.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 17:16, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
  • The Phantom Menace does not state that the character is Vos. You need another source to back that up.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 14:00, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
    • Added reference clarifying that the character was identified as Vos. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:58, July 5, 2015 (UTC)

Comments

  • Regarding the date thing, I added the standard date tweet that we've been using regarding the timeline of the films. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:20, May 23, 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)
  • Article updated with new information from the Databank. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:55, June 9, 2015 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the note Tofty, still looks good! Manoof (talk) 04:41, June 10, 2015 (UTC)

Exiled Jedi
  • I would note that it was mentioned in the new databank as well in the BTS.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 12:18, June 28, 2015 (UTC)
  • Per Ayrehead's comment, I believe you should mention that the Selkath are sentient in the first sentence.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 14:08, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
    • Done. Also adjusted wording. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 12:27, July 10, 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure if this is just the Manaan databank entry, but it refers to the plural of Selkath as "Selkaths." If this is always the case, you should change it in this article.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 23:08, July 26, 2015 (UTC)
    • In Mantu's SWE and Databank entries, the plural of Selkath is Selkath. I can change it to Selkaths if you would like, but I'd say that there is enough evidence to the contrary to keep it the way it is. - AV-6R7 (talk) 23:29, July 26, 2015 (UTC)
Vic
  • I think we need tiny bit of additional context on who Mantu is in the behind the scenes. Somewhere it should say why he's part of canon and where he came from (Clone Wars TV show). Also, I didn't want to make this edit myself but I'd recommend adding in "Star Wars canon" before "canon" in the BTS, as well.Squishy Vic | message 19:27, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

501st
  • " he was rumored to have sacrificed himself in battle so that his comrades could live on, at some point prior to being stuck on Tatooine." Using sacrificed makes it sound like he died, which he didn't if he later got stuck on Tatooine. Perhaps there is a another word you can use? 501st dogma(talk) 18:36, July 24, 2015 (UTC)
    • The card said those words, and being rumored to have died does not mean actually died. IRL both Osama and Saddam were believed by some to have been already dead shortly after the US invasions of their countries, before their ultimate discoveries made big news. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 19:18, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

  • I am going to leave this objection here due to the dead link in the Facebook reference. I am aware that it is not possible to get an image of this, but I believe that there needs to be some sort of agreement on whether or not something like this is allowed as valid sourcing before this article can gain status.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 23:26, July 26, 2015 (UTC)
    • I've decided to remove the Facebook reference. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 01:53, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
      • Well, without the Facebook reference, the article is missing information, so the article is incomplete. I would argue that this would prevent the article from ever gaining status, but we need some kind of substantial decision on this.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 01:56, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
        • I've added the Facebook reference back in. I would argue that, given the fact I added the Facebook reference to the article back when it was made and available, as well as started this CT which gave a link to the Facebook post, this is a case where an exception should be made, given the amount of users who've given the Facebook post attention back when it was online. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 15:51, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
          • Well, this brings us back to my original objection. We need some kind of consensus on this one way or the other.--Exiled Jedi (talk) 14:32, August 15, 2015 (UTC)

Comments

  • Any apparent weird wording of the article is a result of copying the scarce info from the CCG card itself, along with his uncertain era. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 20:29, July 5, 2015 (UTC)
  • Hmm, so neither his card text nor the stats reference him as being a Klatooinian. Is it assumption to assert anything about his species at all? Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 20:34, July 5, 2015 (UTC)
    • At least we know he's male :P Is there anything on that facebook post that might help? If you can, try to get a screenshot as well! Manoof (talk) 08:02, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
      • No, I can't get a screenshot of that Facebook post since it has been unfortunately long expired, and the citation was initially made way before the Facebook citation template. And while Leland Chee made no explicit mention of Wironicc's species, the closest thing was his thinking to retcon him as a TPM Klatooinian. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 04:32, July 18, 2015 (UTC)
        • I'm happy with the article as-is, and agree we can't say he is klatooinian with any certainty. Manoof (talk) 06:57, July 20, 2015 (UTC)

      • You can probably add back a small bit to give an idea on when the planet was conquered by the hutts. Even if it's just something like "...sentient species that by XX BBY had been conquered...". Doesn't have to be big, but the native sentient species' subjugation by a foreign species seems important to the history of the planet. Manoof (talk) 22:47, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
