I feel like the word "refuse," as fancy as it is, is used too frequently during the "History" section. Maybe use synonyms for one or two of them to diversify the language. That's all I can see for now.MasterFred(Whatever) 03:45, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
"His driving desire to cling to life caused Maul to rebuild himself with spider-like legs in place of his severed ones, living in hiding in the caves beneath Lotho Minor's surface and subsisting off trash and vermin for over a decade."
A little confused over why, in trying not to overuse pronouns in this sentence, the proper noun "Maul" is used in place of the second instance of the pronoun not the first. That is, why isn't it "Maul's driving desire to cling to life caused him to rebuild himself..." instead. I think the way it is worded now causes the initial "his" to implicitly mean that it refers to someone other than Maul, even if it's obvious it doesn't. Now personally, given that the subject Maul was just introduced in the previous sentence, I think it's entirely appropriate (even preferable) to just use only pronouns in this sentence, but if you disagree, then I think it should be "Maul's driving desire to cling to life caused him..." instead. In the Legends version, I actually changed "caused" to "pushed" because I somehow think "caused" is too weighty here somehow, like it doesn't capture the meaning precisely, but you don't have to do this if you disagree with it.

"Lotho Minor's role as a galactic dumping ground did not encourage any deep exploration of Junker culture or biology, nor did their violent territoriality."
Do you think it would be better to replace "did not encourage" with "discouraged"? I think the difference is that the former implies that Lotho Minor's role as a galactic dumping ground & the Junker's violent territoriality should encourage deep exploration of their culture, and yet somehow they don't for whatever reason aside. Replacing it with "discouraged" would mean that it is because Lotho Minor is a junkyard and the Junkers are territorial and violent that deep exploration is avoided.

Each Internet Archive backup link contains the date of the capture in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS format. For example, in the link I added to the Amazon template of this article, it's 20160109024505. When you use a template that has the "archivedate" parameter defined, such as the SWE one, and the normal backup link doesn't work as intended, you add that date of the correct capture as a value for the parameter, like this.
How does one know the date of the capture? Well, I usually just preview the template with an "archivedate" value that's less than the date of Encyclopedia's shutdown, i.e., July 2014. For example, 20140600000000. Opening the backup link from the preview redirects to the latest archived capture of the page. You can then copy the correct date of the capture from the backup link's URL to the template. Imperators II(Talk) 12:04, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
The referencing for 20 BBY is alright, but not quite so for 32 BBY. Right now, the ref for 32 BBY explains how Episode I can be dated to 32 BBY. That's not really what's needed - it should be explaining how Maul ending up on Lotho Minor can be dated to 32 BBY. And correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I'm seeing, Lotho Minor's Encyclopedia entry is the only source that actually provides any info on when Maul arrived on Lotho Minor, and it only says he lived there "for over a decade after the Battle of Naboo," which isn't really the same as the precise "in 32 BBY."

How do you feel about creating a canon version of the dismemberment article to be linked to from "severed"?
Probably a good idea, but it would be just a stub. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 08:52, June 3, 2017 (UTC)
Done. Let the morbidly curious finish out that one. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 23:19, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
Is there any article at all for this "mystical talisman"?
That would be the Talisman of Finding in Legends, but I'm sure there's a more simple name floating around it an episode guide or on a piece of concept art I could use to create a canon page. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 08:52, June 3, 2017 (UTC)
