Interview request by Atarumaster88Edit

Submitted on: 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Purpose: Based on the recent nomination of Cane Adiss for FA, it would be useful to Wookieepedia to have background information on the character of Cane Adiss for inclusion in the article. And to make 4dot's famed BTS sections even longer.

      • Consensus is to send an interview request to John Hazlett; otherwise, the request ends here and is archived.

Subject: Wookieepedia interview

Dear Mr. Hazlett:

My name is <name 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 an article for a character you created for a "What's the Story" entry, Cane Adiss, and we were wondering if you would agree to an interview, either via e-mail or in a moderated IRC channel.

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. Furthermore, any and all personal information will be kept confidential; Wookieepedia will not release it. However, the interview will be considered as released into the public domain and can be used on Wookieepedia and elsewhere without copyright.

Please get back to me with your preferred medium for interview and any other 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.

In care of the Wookieepedia community,

<name redacted>

Interview request is submitted to Hazlett, and while I can't speak for him, this is hypothetical, so we'll say he agrees to be interviewed.

QuestionsEdit

Proposed by Atarumaster88 on 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)Edit

  • What inspired the name Cane Adiss for your entry?
  • Was there anything that Lucasfilm cut from the entry?
  • What canon elements were you trying to incorporate into Adiss's backstory?
  • Is this your first contribution to the Star Wars canon?
  • Can you explain where you got your dance moves at Celebration IV from? Stricken by --Admin some time after 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • First four look good, but that last needs to go. --Some whistleblower, not long after 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Agreed, popped it off. --Admin. Some time after 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Okay, it's fine now. Let's get it sent. --Several other users, about a week after 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Note: Interviews should not be excessively long. Say, no more than good, solid, non-inflammatory 20 questions at the very most.
  • Oh c'mon, we gotta ask him about those mad dance moves. :P -- Riffsyphon1024 15:42, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

InterviewEdit

Sent on: A week and a couple hours after 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Once the questions are proposed, discussed, and approved, they'll be sent off to the VIP. This should take about a week.

Subject: Re: Wookieepedia interview

Dear Mr. Hazlett:

We appreciate your willingness to discuss Cane Adiss and your involvement in its creation. Over the past <period of time>, our community has come up with a series of questions for you.

  • What inspired the name Cane Adiss for your entry?
  • Was there anything that Lucasfilm cut from the entry?
  • What canon elements were you trying to incorporate into Adiss's backstory?
  • Is this your first contribution to the Star Wars canon?

Once again, thank you for letting us have some of your valuable time and we appreciate your helping us in our mission to completely chronicle the Star Wars universe. We look forward to future conversations as well. May the Force be with you. *Note: We don't have to use the cheesy cliche.

Once we get a response from Mr. Hazlett, the interview would be posted here in its entirety and the page would be archived and usable for citation. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Note: This is an entirely fictional interview. It never happened, I never sent it. It's only here to serve as an example. And AFAIK, neither of those e-mail addresses actually belong to any of the administrators . . . yet. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 19:38, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
