Interview request by Atarumaster88Edit

Submitted on: 15:44, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Purpose: We have a number of Featured Articles based on Allston's works—at least 12—and we could use some information on some of the characters since his website's FAQ hasn't been updated in awhile. Specifically, there are things regarding his latest Legacy of the Force books that could use some clarification (e.g. Shalla Nelprin's implied appearance in Legacy of the Force: Betrayal).

DiscussionEdit

  • I naturally think this is a good idea and would be happy to conduct the interview if Mr. Allston is willing, unless someone else already has a prior history of contact with him. His article seems to meet our minimum requirements. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 15:44, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
    • No one's commented here, so I will. I say this is a good idea. When will this be done, do we know that yet? Chack Jadson (Talk) 19:57, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
      • Community approval is required for interviews to proceed; once that exists, then I will work on the next step. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 20:35, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Go for it. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 20:00, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • How much community approval do we need here? I'm in favor, anyway. Darth Culator (Talk) 20:52, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
    • I was personally going to wait for at least five people to chime in. If we have that, I'll e-mail Mr. Allston this weekend. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 21:00, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I support the idea. I think its a great idea considering how much he has written especially recently. Jacob Nion Starkiller vs Vader (Personal Comm) 22:02, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
    • Given the general atmosphere of support, I have sent an interview request to Mr. Allston. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 23:04, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
      • Even though you have sent the request by now, I also support this. -- Riffsyphon1024 00:35, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Allston:

My name is REDACTED and I'm a member of the Star Wars online encyclopedia Wookieepedia (http://starwars.wikia.com). Members of our project have been working on dilligently on over 50,000 articles from the Star Wars universe. We even have an article on you! (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Aaron_Allston) As our editors have been working on articles, we have found the FAQ section of your website to be helpful, but being information-hungry individuals, we were wondering if you would agree to an e-mail interview.

Of course, if there is any topic you would like to exclude from the interview, we would omit it from the list of questions and naturally you are free to reject any question in the interview. It is our desire to have as smooth of an interview as possible, and we certainly don't want to infringe on any boundaries you set for the questions. Furthermore, any and all personal information, such as e-mail addresses, will be kept confidential; Wookieepedia will not release it. However, the interview will be considered as licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License, as with all Wookieepedia material, and can be used on Wookieepedia and elsewhere as free documentation. You can find more information on the full license agreement at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Free_Documentation_License. At your convenience, please get back to me with a reply and provide any and all preferences you might have, if you are interested in being interviewed. We thank you for your time and look forward to continued correspondence with you; our prior communications have proven valuable.

In care of the Wookieepedia community,

Follow-up interview request in light of Aaron Allston's recent blog postEdit

Dear Mr. Allston,

Congratulations on your successful eye surgery. We wish you continued success in your endeavors and a swift recovery. My name is REDACTED, and I am a member of the online Star Wars encyclopedia, known as Wookieepedia. (http://starwars.wikia.com) Members of our project have been working on diligently on over 50,000 articles from the Star Wars universe, in order to provide free and accurate information on all things Star Wars. At the end of July, I sent you an e-mail asking if you would be interested in being interviewed by Wookieepedia via e-mail. We have used your FAQ and blog before to some extent, but we're always looking for more ways to add to our collective knowledge. Having not heard back, we were wondering if you were open to the idea of an interview. If not, we won't bother you further-this will be the last e-mail we send on this topic unless you indicate interest, as we have no desire to harass anyone. I know you probably have hundreds of fan e-mails, so we understand any delay in replying. ;-)

Of course, if there is any topic you would like to exclude from the interview, we would omit it from the list of questions and naturally you are free to reject any question in the interview. It is our desire to have as smooth of an interview as possible, and we certainly don't want to infringe on any boundaries you set for the questions, nor interfere with your obligations to Lucasfilm. Furthermore, any and all personal information, such as e-mail addresses, will be kept confidential; Wookieepedia will not release it. However, the interview will be considered as licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License, as with all Wookieepedia material, and can be used on Wookieepedia and elsewhere as free documentation. You can find more information on the full license agreement at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Free_Documentation_License. At your convenience, please get back to me with a reply and provide any and all preferences you might have, if you are interested in being interviewed. We thank you for your time and look forward to continued correspondence with you; our prior communications have proven valuable.

Sincerely,

REDACTED "Atarumaster88" REDACTED Wookieepedia administrator Atarumaster88@Wookieepedia.com
