  • Allies in Scandinavia. Allies is always a good thing... plus it's presently the largest SW-related internet community in Denmark. Their admins like the idea of an official friendship between Wookipeedia and Skywalker.dk KEJ 20:13, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
  • I can't understand a word of that page, but it certainly looks nice. :-) —Darth Culator (talk) 14:03, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Looks good to me. Just hope they don't make any cartoons of Lucas. Kuralyov 04:33, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
    • I think they'd be perfectly safe if they made cartoons of GL. If they made cartoons of Karen Traviss, though, then I'd be worried for them. —Darth Culator (talk) 15:20, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
    • There is a difference though. The Muhammad drawings were published by a right-winged newspaper that generally does not sympathize with Muhammad. These people on the other hand, do sympathize with George Lucas and Karen Traviss. Had it been a buch of Trekkies, then I'd start to worry :-P 130.88.187.151 16:21, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
  • hey, I'm a skywalker and I think it great with a little support. ;) and we do have a little international section, Lora Skywalker, 31/1-07

Request & reasons for partnership: Forum:SH Archive/Site Partnership with TFWiki

SupportEdit

  1. Y'know, I usually vote against non-SW sites reflexively, but TFWiki is unique. They're a shining example of a site that has successfully escaped from the Wikia tar pits. While we get dragged down with "innovations" like Monaco (spit) and video embedding (spit), they get to stay slim and trim and functional. And they do have unique Star Wars content that we don't even cover. TFWiki is like the Kyle Katarn of independent wikis. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 14:28, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

#This is an unique site, especially its view towards NPOV (there isn't any NPOV). It's well-organized and has a strong, fun-loving editor base.

If the community is willing to accept a non-SW site as an official friend, TFWiki would be a good candidate. It's a well-organized and well-established wiki, with a good selection of quality articles (including some Star Wars articles.) —Silly Dan (talk) 04:14, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Star Wars: The Old Republic Wiki (12/0/0)Edit

A wiki dedicated to the upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG by BioWare. Unlike Wookieepedia, the focus of the wiki is of course the gameplay side of things, which falls out of Wookieepedia's scope (and it will be a good place to direct users to once the game comes out and some of them start adding things like character or item stats here). The wiki already links to Wookieepedia for additional background info, and some of its admins, like Alexsau1991, are also Wookieepedia contributors. Some of the content is currently copied from Wookieepedia, but always with the appropriate CC-BY-SA-compliant source template. Ausir(talk) 00:09, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

  4. I've been thinking about this one. One of the key things I look for in a potential Official Friend is "how will they benefit us?", and unlike many nominations on this page, there is a (small) benefit to us, in that this wiki would be a good place to direct the users that inevitably will come here and try to add gameplay stuff as Ausir described. Indeed, it's possible that just having this wiki linked under "Official Friends" on the Main Page could help draw users over there before they flood the Wook with trivia beyond our scope, and that would be good for us. The TOR wiki also has some good potential, as Olioster pointed out, and there's no reason to vote against, so this will be the first OF nomination that I will give a support vote to. —Master Jonathan New Jedi Order (Jedi Council Chambers) 03:21, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

    Hah, the basic skin for the SWTOR wiki is Monaco, and the Monobook skin for it was unreadable until recently, so I temporarily just grabbed the CSS off the first dark-skinned Star Wars wiki that came to my mind, given that lots of Wookieepedia users use Monobook. It's still work in progress, though, and I somehow failed to notice Darth Darth Binks there. :) Just removed him. Ausir(talk) 22:18, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

  11. I agree that this will be a mutually beneficial relationship, and that the information this site provides will be distinctly different from what we offer here. In addition, the TOR wiki will attract users who may not otherwise come to Wookieepedia, but the links to our pages might increase our readership in that demographic. And their compliance with CC-BY-SA is impressive—we all know there's been instances of other websites blatantly copy-pasting large chunks of our articles and calling it their own work. Still, I think one of the best parts of this is that it's a place to redirect questions or comments that fall outside of our scope. Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 19:29, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Star Wars Fanpedia (19/0/0)Edit

Two-week deadline from first request, voting ends no later than February 15, 2011.

Sister project founded by Brandon Rhea in 2008 "to document all information regarding the Star Wars fan community." An excellent place to direct those whose projects don't meet our notability standards. Run by Wookieepedians and friendlies.

  • Thanks for the nomination, Grae. I hadn't nominated it earlier because I wasn't sure if it would pass due to the level of activity, but I also think that an official friendship with Wookieepedia would be mutually beneficial for both wikis; you'll have an official friend to point fan articles towards, and we'll reap the benefits. =) - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 05:07, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

The Official Star Wars PocketModels Website and Facebook page (14/3/0)Edit

Selected by the Topps/WizKids game company to officially lead promotions for their Star Wars gaming brand line, The Official Star Wars PocketModels Website was granted continued not-for-profit collector/hobbyist operation by its owners and admins after discontinuation of the brand by Topps. Canon depictions of ships, vehicles, and creatures from the Star Wars universe, and card text and images of scenes and characters from the films and TV series provide canon sources of material. I am currently the sole owner of the site. One member, Porpman (a former employee for the Topps/Wizkids Star Wars brand line who was responsible for rules arbitration, final game balance testing, and material preview writing), remains an admin at-large while on hiatus. Several other members of the forums continue to assist in moderating forums and contributing creative content and rules arbitration. Our relationship with Wookieepedia has been a long-standing congenial one. A lurker at first on Wookieepedia, I eventually became an article contributor. Conversely, links to the Wookieepedia from both our SWPM site and (more recently) on our SWPM Facebook page guides Star Wars collectors/hobbyists/fans back to this wiki for more info on Star Wars subject matter found in-game. Coincidentally, the reverse is also true in that canon details found in-game have been cited as sources of info for Wookieepedia articles. Many cards include references, quotes, descriptions, and other "flavor text" providing supplemental info concerning such productions as, for instance, the then-unfolding TCW animated series. We have also made it easy for linking of gallery images to Wookieepedia articles from the card and unit catalog originally published by our site. Additionally, the Facebook page weekly highlights a Wookieepedia article pertaining to a certain game element. The Wookieepedia FB page is also advertised as a featured "Liked" page on our site. —GethralkinHyperwave 05:13, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

  1. I respectfully disagree. Pocket Model's activity being down is definitely a negative but I don't think Wookieepedia should become so large and so popular and so powerful and so elite and so arrogant to not add new friends if said friends are small sites with sagging activity. Fe Nite (talk) 00:57, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
  2. This is going to seem odd coming from me of all people, but Fe Nite there has a point that I've been trying to think of a way to make for a while. We need to stop thinking of Wookieepedia as "too big to fail." Most OFOW nominees suck, and are rightly shot down. This site is actually useful. The point of OFOW is mutual benefit, but we shouldn't think of that in narrow terms of viewership, we should also consider the value of having an ongoing official relationship with a library-type site that goes beyond our hosting ability. It wouldn't hurt us to have more close relationships with useful reference sites that don't suck, even if they won't send a lot of clicks our way. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 04:31, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
  3. I'm actually going to be supportive of this measure for the time being. I agree with points on both sides, though not with the removal of the OFOW process. Yet, Fe Nite is right in that we can't think we are too big to not have a mutual relationship with a smaller site. We once were that smaller site. In viewing the series of links that are sent back to Wookieepedia, regardless of the activity at the moment, I believe the intent to work with us is there. In addition, the Pocket Models are great products that continue to add additional information to our archives. Gelthralkin has been quite adamant about keeping that up. If we do confirm it, but later decide that the site is not up to par due to a lack of activity, there is always the Removal Process, however I would hope we shouldn't need to go there. -- Riffsyphon1024 04:50, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Alright, so I'm diving in first. I'm sorry Geth, but in terms of new content, that is a very inactive website and the Facebook page has no more than 5 active contributors. Now, as Riff already said, WP with this friendship would help that website a lot while WP wouldn't be taking any advantage from it, and is the opposite of these friendships' objective, which is both sides gaining something. As it stands, I don't think even the 17 regular forum users might help it and so I don't think it would be in Wookieepedia's best interest to join with you imo. I'm sure this friendship could've happened in some of your previous nominations but now, unfortunately, that website is barely surviving and my vote is a no. Winterz (talk) 17:59, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Per Winterz. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 18:03, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
    I've thought about this for a while, and after seeing the other comments here, I have to agree with Winterz. As I sit here looking at the "big picture", I also perceive a bigger issue, not with this site specifically, but with the OFOW process in general. OFOW relationships are meant to be mutually beneficial. That was easier in the early days of Wookieepedia, when we were still looking for exposure, but now that we're well-known, it's very difficult for a potential Friend to provide a benefit to us. By and large, I think the entire OFOW system is dying because of that; there's just not anybody left worth becoming Friends with, and many nominations are completely ignored. I appreciate your politeness and patience with this process, Geth, and I wish your site all the best, but here in 2013, the whole OFOW system has been on life support for quite a while, and I think it's time for the community to seriously discuss pulling the plug on it. It's just not needed anymore. —MJ— Training Room 23:45, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
    • Seconded. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:50, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
      • Actually I'll have to disagree here about closing the OFOW system (pardon my inexperience but I just think it might not be best). There will be a massive amount of new info coming with Disney and the new movies/shows so it's very likely that websites will be launched and I can totally see one of these in the hands of a person, who knows about marketing or how to manage a good website business, can become a pretty big ehrm..enterprise and may even be beneficial to us as a community. But anyway, I have no intentions of expanding this here, I really think we should discuss this theme in the Senate Hall though, maybe even go to CT. ;) Winterz (talk) 00:42, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
    • OK, after seeing the comment above from Culator, I see the value in keeping the OFOW system around, so I'll strike my comments on that subject. The vote itself stands, at least until I can think this over some more and see if anyone else chimes in. —MJ— Council Chambers 04:44, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
    I also took a few days to think about this one, and looking over the sites. I have to agree with Winterz and MJ, and again with Winterz's point about not shutting OFOW down. - JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 02:06, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

  • I'll look at this closer within the next few days, but I'm going to note that this site has been nominated three times previously [1] [2] [3]. I can't blame Gethralkin for making a fourth attempt, as all three of the previous nominations were almost entirely ignored by the community. I'd like to see enough votes this time that we can actually form a consensus one way or the other. —MJ— Comlink 05:27, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
    • Thank you, I appreciate that. Part of the problem with earlier nominations was the timing... I posted them during which many Wookieepedians may have been busy in college, etc. This time, my hope is that the end of Spring will find a better exposure of the request here. —GethralkinHyperwave 13:51, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
      • An additional note to the information above in the website description: Before Topps sold the company maintaining the publication of the TCG, Lucasfilm used the PocketModels game as a preview of TCW content prior to the airing of episodes (or the movie), as well as to provide a medium of extended content not highlighted in TCW. Therefore, several PocketModel elements were a proprietary source of certain TCW content not available elsewhere prior to aired episodes. In addition all SWPM releases, including those before TCW, had requests from and elements approved by George Lucas himself (with his signature). In one such case, tauntauns were specifically requested by him for inclusion in the game with the Ground Assault release. —GethralkinHyperwave 14:01, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • In an effort to prevent this nomination from being ignored again, I have advertised it in the sitenotice and community corner. Hopefully that will bring some votes in. —MJ— Comlink 19:30, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • Question for Geth: Is this site even active? The last news update is from February 2009. MasterFredCommerce Guild(Whatever) 19:39, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
    • Short answer, "yes." To break it down in numbers, we average almost 25 forum posts per day with an average of almost 17 members logged into the forum simultaneously (compare this with 118 logged in simultaneously in 2009, and it is a drop, but still active), and from mid-80s to a little over 100 reached through the FB page. Agreed, there are elements that are left over from pre-demise of WizKids/Topps partnership left up when sole ownership was handed back to us. However, the website has continued to link together fans of the game, as well as Star Wars memorabilia collectors, for trade and locations of stock liquidations (i.e., Target, Tuesday Morning, etc.), offering a chance for those new to the game to still have an opportunity to enjoy the PocketModels. However, after a period of waxing nostalgic of the site's association with WizKids, a slight restructure of the front end is in progress this summer to eliminate any elements not working or out of date (one of the first items on the list is to update the Newsfeed you mentioned). It has also taken this long to begin remodeling due to our admins' various busy work or school schedules to gel together. We have also launched a Facebook page (as mentioned and linked above) in January this year, and are drawing in new players via social media. Our site as an entity currently is registered for Gen Con Indy for a booth exposition and tournament with SWPM prizes to award. Beginning May the 4th, we also launched a website contest to offer entrants a chance to design their own 2.5 dimensional (semi-3D) SWPM creature, vehicle, or starship unit for a chance to win SWPM product. The contest will also have a separate Admin's Choice Award that will be an oversized construction (called a Mega PocketModel... I know, but that was the official label WizKids gave oversized "miniatures") of the selected entry that meets the best all-around unit (functionality fitting in with the game as it currently stands). The face of the site definitely is going to get a lift to reflect the communication going on over at our FB page and in the community forums because of the issue you pointed out. —GethralkinHyperwave 20:45, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi Gethralkin. I've looked at the Facebook page in which you'd hope to connect with to our Facebook page. I for the most part have operated that fan page, though others do have access to admin controls there as well. I notice that you do link back to Wookieepedia quite frequently, though for the moment, you are running around 60 fans. Compared to the 13,000 or so fans that we've built up, it's not certain that our page might benefit so much from that alone, though your's would certainly get more attention. Indeed you have helped expand our wiki and the canon itself through your product, and that is worth mentioning. What else might you hope to bring to this relationship? -- Riffsyphon1024 07:32, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
    • We are only just beginning to restart the product on a convention and from-site available non-profit basis. This will definitely be drawing in more interest to the site. There already is a great amount of interest generated with the 2669.65 page views per day on our website and forum, both from registered and unregistered visitors. Registered members of the site currently number 670. Granted, that is lower than the high amount mentioned visiting Wookieepedia, but that is expected to change. We are pushing for restructuring especially now with the changes in ownership of the LFL franchise and would like to have something a bit noticeable for Disney to be interested in. Despite the negative (although, pragmatic) comments above, whether or not the Wookieepedia has an association with us or not is not going to prevent any these efforts from going forth. This nomination is just a gesture of good faith to the community that has used our images and information for its articles, and with whom we have referenced back to to help our members learn more about the SW universe. —GethralkinHyperwave 00:43, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
      • By the way, not trying to discourage reasonable objections, and I do believe the above objections so far are actually reasonable. I am nominating from the viewpoint however of the current direction that we are heading, which I see as a positive direction. —GethralkinHyperwave 07:32, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
  • I am often reminded of this, Geth. That instance left a bad taste in my mouth and will ultimately impact my voting decision. As of right now, however, I am going to stay out of it. The discussion was poorly conducted. JangFett (Talk) 16:05, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
    • I am sorry that you feel unsatisfied with the discussion that you have referenced. For obvious reasons, however, resolution of that discussion can not happen here on this nomination page. If you feel that the website has nothing to offer this wiki, then please vote "against." If you feel that the website is supportive and adds to this wiki, then please vote "for." —GethralkinHyperwave 15:47, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

  • I am not sure who Jack Nebulax is, but they have never been a division head in the Vast Empire, so why punish the group without explanation The VE is a storywriting and gaming club, set as an Imperial faction, currently during the Thrawn era. Club services are both Army (Stormtrooper) and Naval with additional potential Dark Jedi and Engineering Corps membership activity. As members, there is access to a virtual - and very imaginary - Imperial bank, stock market, store, health care system and other options in development to better flesh out our characters. Been a member for seven years now and currently head the virtual store for members and allies. Unsigned comment by DarNamell (talk • contribs).
    • I think the key words of your comment here are "very imaginary." I don't think we need anything to do with a completely fanon website. Toprawa and Ralltiir 21:56, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Apologies for upsetting the apple cart. Just delete the entry if you feel so strongly about this. Having logged out, I see your Jack Nebulax reference, which is one of a series of personal recommendations when the main page was redone a few years ago. Since I use cookies, I can't say I've actually seen said page to spend time on it. But hey, I guess you are entitled to mock people as an admin. I have been informed that he was once a member in the naval part of the club, and has not been for years. Look, I wasn't looking to start trouble, but the hostility immediately presented proves that this was obviously a horrible idea. So much for "community", eh? Seriously, on consulting with other club members, please just forget it. - DarNamell
    • I'm not mocking anyone, and certainly not yourself. You can feel as insulted as you want that I strongly oppose your nomination. That is really none of my concern.

        • Yet one could answer probably all of the Star Wars questions one could ever have by simply reading our articles or asking on the Wook's KB. Simply put, I see no way that we are being in any way advanced by this partnership. Jonjedigrandmaster Jedi symbol (We seed the stars) 21:34, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
        • The amount of questions may be growing quickly, however, the quality of the answers is suspect. I'm not even talking about false answers, but speculative answers. One of our main goals on Wookieepedia is to remove as much speculation as possible and provide only verified information. I don't believe that we would benefit from a partnership with a site that, as of right now, is the opposite of what we strive to achieve. Cylka-talk- 21:48, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

  3. You may be aware of the Wikianswers Widget. It's shown by default to unregistered users on this wiki. Right now this points to the Star Wars category on the central answers site. Should it stay that way, or would it be better pointing to the specific Star Wars Answers site? (Feel free to move this comment if this isn't the right forum for it).

      • This is a bunch of junk. Whats wrong with it being fanon. Everyone wiki has a topic that benefits it. Even if Wookieepedia is the Star Wars canon wiki, it can still benefit from a fanon wiki. Working together helps better than working alone. If Thoughtful Wiki and Wookieepedia can work together, both the wikis can benefit from it. Bigman602, The Cool Guy 02:34, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
        • Quite frankly, whether Wookieepedia can benefit from a partnership is debatable. Wookieepedia seeks to promote canon, not fanon, and supporting a site that doesn't do so isn't necessarily going to further that goal. CC7567 (talk) 03:30, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral/commentsEdit

I am hearing alot of comments about it not being Star Wars related. That sounds racist to me not excepting a wiki, just because of the subjuect. It shouldn't make a difference if one wishes to become friends. Isn't it God's plan to have everyone be friends. But it seems people have to try to ruin His plans. --Bigman602, The Cool Guy 05:54, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

  • We are a Star Wars encyclopedia. Do we really benefit that much by having something like Spongebob Fanon as our friends? And btw, this has nothing to do with God, but with Wookieepedia. -- 1358 (Talk) 05:55, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
  • Racism is described as "the belief that race is a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race." The fact that a wiki is not Star Wars related and therefore not eligible to be a "Friend of Wookieepedia" does not constitute as "racism." Trak Nar Ramble on 05:58, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
  • Bigman, I believe the word you're looking for is "prejudiced". And only in the sense that as a Star Wars Wiki, one would expect "friends" to have at least a tangible connection to Star Wars. Unfortunately, a wiki dealing with Spongebob is not. I hope you're not put off by this—it's nothing personal, nor is it a statement against "God's plan", or even Spongebob—and that you can continue to enjoy/contribute to Wookieepedia in the future.--Bella'Mia 08:35, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

The Force Unleashed Wikia (0/5/0)Edit

I know this wikia is small. But I just adopted it. Currently it barely has any information and I need help from users here. I felt as a friend nominating this website it would help this Wikia to build a larger site even if this is unsuccessful I think that it would help this Wikia a great deal. I know I could just ask to copy past some of these articles but having a community would help a great deal. I hope you realize that in the future with the next Force Unleashed game coming up this link could help a great deal. Thank you Kajalamorth 15:35, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Considering the fact that I am the nominator I would say a go. On several articles I have written I linked some of the information ON this WIKIA! I will take them off if you wont do so for this wiki. I feel slightly insulted by this. You all a ranted about the removal of darthpedia and how they took you guys off because of the one link ordeal. But sorry even if my wikia currently doesn't get any visitors is not because its a bad wiki its because no knows if it f*ck*ng exists. This no a chance to advertise its a chance to make this wiki bigger and it seems that some people on this wiki (Not pointing any fingers* have large lack of respect.

    • I give up... I am tired of this I am astounded by the lack of respect here. I will leave here and I will take this nomination off. This won't help the wiki if you can't respect other people. You don't oppose a wiki because you don't like it you don't oppose it because it doesn't benefit itself. I thought it would be chance to benefit both wiki's but you know what? I tried to do what I can but I can't stop from being annoyed and frustrated of lack of respect. I can't stand people like this it pisses me off. I won't take that. I won't be a big loss I don't expect people to care. I respect people and their work. Kajalamorth 21:13, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
  5. Because I feel that establishing an "official friend" relationship with another site should be a two-way deal, i.e. both sides should have something to gain from the relationship. Many of our current Official Friends are either VIPs (e.g. Abel Pena, Daniel Wallace) or other prominent fan sites (e.g. CUSWE, Club Jade), so there is clearly a benefit to us to be associated with them. However, I don't see where we would gain anything from associating with what appears to be a newly started wiki that's barely known and that partially duplicates our effort (in that we cover TFU-related stuff also). —Master Jonathan New Jedi Order (Jedi Council Chambers) 21:16, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
    • Okay first of all whoever is constantly undoing the post I am deleting please stop its very frustrating and annoying. Second sorry for my previous tantrum it also be nice if people would stop reverting that post of my tantrum. I understand your opinion. But I thought perhaps people who helped with those articles would see this nomination and may help our wiki. If I don't succeed I will work and make it increase in size and I will try again. I am sorry about my tantrum again. But its a very touchy subject and I felt like people were insulting the wiki. Thanks againKajalamorth 21:27, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

We are a real-time role-playing experience set in a Star Wars Universe of our own design. Role players on Legends of the Jedi join our world to create dynamic characters that live and interact with others and add to the global storyline that affects all players.

Commonly referred in the RP gaming community as a “sandbox” style game, Legends of the Jedi’s unique timeline begins at an early point in the Star Wars Extended Universe, and players work together to write their own adventure, playing the parts of heroic Jedi Knights, benevolent Republic Senators, crafty ship builders, dangerous crime lords and dark and mysterious Sith Masters.

Wookieepedia is Legend of the Jedi's single best player resource for all RP needs. <3

Hi! I'm a User on Star Wars Roleplay Wiki, a wiki dedicated to finding users who want to make their own characters and explore the Galaxy.

Obviously, this would make this deal more useful for us, but we still believe that this friendship will be used by many a dedicated, respected Wookiepedian to discover and experience our wiki!

You know, I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but it would only make sense. Until its discontinuation, the game became a sneak preview into what was in store for each next season of TCW. Even long after it was gone, interest in the game continues to generate responses and questions about many elements of the cards and units, including how they fit into the Star Wars universe. The official website for the game remains a resource to fill this need, and will also continue to provide support to this wiki, as well. GethralkinHyperwave 07:29, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

The swpocketmodels.com website provides official pictures and information for characters and starships/vehicles/etc. that appeared in the trading card game. The Wookieepedia actually references many official images and pieces of information found on the site, much the same that Decipher and WotC were once resources for images and info. Similar to the SWPM site, Decipher and Wizards of the Coast both provided info and images that this wikia used to cite facts. However, Decipher now requires membership for viewing images and WotC no longer has Star Wars license, so the links for those resources have changed or are dead. The SWPM site, on the other hand, remains a live resource that continues to provide information—including new info as it is discovered through contact via its connection to the company's former representatives. Several IU sources have been drawn from the Star Wars license to produce game material incorporating elements from all of the films. Additionally, EU material was incorporated, as well, from video games to novels. swpocketmodels.com remains the official site for the game, with former representatives of the WizKids company administrating the site and forums.

Greetings.

I am Maestro_Tholme and represent www.swx.it, an Italian fansite, hosting the largest Star Wars databank available in our language (which has been using the Wikia service since 2008 in order to enhance users’ participation at the project).

We would like to advance a proposal to you and, through you, to the whole Wookieepedia staff. We highly admire the work done by you to gather virtually all information about the huge universe of Star Wars, putting it at everyone’s disposal and pleasure. We ask you to consider our request to be listed as Official Friends of Wookieepedia. In turn, we will publicly endorse Wookieepedia. For more information regarding our website there is a voice on Wookieepedia of SWX.it that you can find on the link here below.

  • I have several concerns. I'm naturally skeptical whenever I see a new Friends request, simply because we've pretty much befriended all the major relevant SW communities out there. We are the best in the business when it comes to what we do. There really isn't anyone out there left for us to partner with from whom we will benefit as much as they will benefit from us. The reason people want to be our friends is because we are the best, and they know this, so, forgive my condescending language, but they want to leech off our immense success by getting us to advertise their website on our Main Page. When I consider a possible "friendship," I feel like the relationship should be benefiting us as much, or more than, it's benefiting them. And I really don't see that happening with this website. According to our internal page on them, they have 2,000+ articles. We have almost 100,000. Can anyone give me an idea of what their userbase size is? I'm guessing it's fairly low, especially compared to ours. They promise that they will publicly endorse Wookieepedia (which is expected, naturally), but they already publicly endorse us on their "Recommended sites" (translated) list on their Main Page. Why do we need to do anything more here? I see this partnership as a great benefit for them, and negligible at best for us. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 16:44, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

The Star Wars Chronology Project (0/3/0)Edit

The Star Wars Chronology Project is a blog started by MKB in 2009. MKB describes himself as a high school teacher who teaches the subjects of Literature and Theology at the High School level. His intent is to cover the in-universe chronological history of Star Wars in all its variant media forms, and record his thoughts and musing on his blog. To date, he has read the entirety of Star Wars history up to 32 BBY.

Many of his posts are literary critiques of Star Wars literature in general, wherein he defines the vast majority of Star Wars mythology as intertextual.

Petition to be recognized as an Official Friend to Wookieepedia.

Hello to all the Wookieepedians reading this,

Please consider the edited addition to this page as my petition to you all to be recognized as an Official friend of Wookieepedia. As the little blurb about my blog indicates, I’ve been reading/playing/listening my way through Star Wars history for the last three years.

I would like my blog to be recognized as an Official friend of Wookieepedia because I feel connected to the fraternity (used in the gender-neutral sense here) of Star Wars fans around the world. I would like to count myself among this fraternity of fans in a more official manner. To become, like all of you, one of its ambassadors.

I’m not sure what the requirements of becoming an Official Friend to Wookieepedia are. I link and promote Wookeepedia on my site regularly, but I cannot see myself as one who would edit or add to Wookieepedia personally. I think the editors and contributors to Wookieepedia are people with a vast knowledge of Star Wars, and though amongst most people around me I would call myself an expert on Star Wars, in this particular fraternity I would not. I’ll leave the editing and contributions to this site to the experts.

Please peruse my blog and consider favourably my application to become recognized as an Official Friend of Wookieepedia Regards, MKB Unsigned comment by MKB-SWCP (talk • contribs).

  1. I was asked to put in my opinion, and it seems like a number of people are already aware of this nomination but are waiting for someone to go first, so it might as well be me. As I just told some others on our IRC channel, and as I've expressed previously, I feel like at this point in Wookieepedia's development, there is almost no one we are not already friends with who can offer us a legitimately mutually beneficial partnership, VIPs excluded. Aside from TheForce.Net, we're probably the most well-known Star Wars fan site out there. Heck, StarWars.com even links to us in their Encyclopedia feature as a "read further" option and recognizes us on their fan site page. You can't get much better than that. At this point, the vast majority of Official Friend requests are just like this one: someone starting out a new project who sees Wookieepedia's immense popularity as something they might be able to use to help grow their own interests. That's great, but it offers very little, if anything at all, to us. I feel like we owe it to ourselves, given our size and prominence, to be extremely discerning in who we lend our name brand to. And while MKB offers some intriguing potential benefits in regards to some of our lesser developed articles, I just can't see this man's single blog being worth our time right now. To me, it's almost like an unwritten rule at this point that a request should also demonstrate notability and massive traffic. In other words, we probably should have heard of you before you come knocking on our door. And this one just doesn't meet that. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 04:25, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
    Response by MKB
    Thanks for the comments Toprawa and Ralltiir.
    I’ll preface my comments with the promise that this will be my last comment in this thread. I don’t want to bog down the process with my voice. I’ll leave it to other Wookieepedians to judge the merits of my petition.
    Regarding your points Toprawa and Ralltiir, I agree. I’ve reflected on what you’ve written and there is very little I can protest. Indeed, I’m a very small fish in a very large pond of Star Wars fans sites.
    There are no other fans sites, outside of VIPs, that can benefit Wookieepedia as mutually as Wookieepedia can benefit them. You all have essentially reached the top of the heap. In that respect, why have the Official Friends nomination process? How many other Star Wars fan sites out there can give to Wookieepedia what Wookieepedia can give to them? Very few perhaps.
    What is more, you are correct in saying that I am looking to leverage Wookieepedia’s vast readership into my blog. I like discussing Star Wars, and I’m genuinely interested in other fans opinions on the material I’ve examined.
    Before I started my blog I used to read other Star Wars forums, and more often than not much of the content on those forums concerned the most popular elements of the Star Wars universe: the latest book, or video game for example. Which is fine (and something I do truly enjoy), but there are only so many of those types of forum posts that hold my interest. Also, many of the conversations on these forums often descended into flaming and vitriol. Aspects of online conversations I had no interest in participating in. Since I was uninterested in entering these conversations (because they were not talking about the things I wanted to talk about) I decided to go my own way and construct the Star Wars conversation I wanted to have independently. As I said before, my blog has a theological / literary theory bent to it, because these are the aspects of Star Wars I enjoy looking at (and likewise, not for everyone). I can honestly say I take pride in elevating the importance of Star Wars literature on my blog. I take seriously (perhaps to a fault) the importance of Star Wars literature and the importance it will have in time to come. In the literary world, there really is nothing like it.
    I want to direct other Star Wars fans, through Wookieepedia, to my own site to see if they too are interested in have these types of discussions. I’ll let the merits of my writing speak for itself. It’s an authentic and honest attempt to talk about Star Wars one little piece at a time.
    I agree, Wookieepedia does owe it to itself to be discerning of who it includes and excludes. Can I demonstrate notability and massive traffic? No, but also, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to demonstrate this. At its core, I’m not sure that’s what The Star Wars Chronology Project is all about. Would I like more readers? Absolutely, because I think I’m participating, constructively and positively, to the online discussion about Star Wars, and I think more voices, like any good democracy, add to a good conversation.
    Indeed, I’ll benefit more from Wookieepedia’s recognition than Wookieepedia will from mine. I think the question Wookieepedians who will be voting on this petition need to ask is if they think the inclusion of the Star Wars Chronology Project on the list of Official Friends to Wookieepedia ultimately detract from Wookieepedia, or add, (as slight as an addition as that me be) to Wookieepedia.
    Cheers,
    MKB.
    • Thank you for your civil response, MKB. Likewise, I don't disagree with anything you say here. Is there any harm in adding you to the list of friends? Of course not. But I think you raise some excellent points that I myself have offered up in the past: Is there even any point in having the Official Friends system anymore? In my opinion, almost without exception, no. And while there may not be any harm in adding you or anyone else to the list of friends, I think it begs the question, where do we draw the line with that? We could apply that same reasoning to any and every Star Wars fan site out there, of which there are many, and add them all to the list in the interest of trying to generate one more extra ounce of traffic. Ultimately, with that in mind, I tend to land on the side of the fence that thinks we should be done adding anyone at all and only continue to let people add their sites to the afore-linked list of fan sites. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 19:01, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
  2. I have to agree with Tope. While I appreciate your desire to want to be affiliated with us, MKB, you have to understand our situation. We are a huge site that cannot afford to let everyone be an official friend. We have to restrict it to those that can bring us major benefits as well. I won't go on about this, though, since Tope pretty much covered all major points already. Just note that it's nothing against you personally, MKB. I hope you do extremely well with your site/blog.—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 19:28, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
  3. After considering this and reading the comments here, I'm going to agree with Tope. At this point, there's really no use for the Official Friends system. It was nice when we were starting out and trying to get attention, but now that we have the attention, there's really no one out there whom becoming friends with would be legitimately beneficial to us. Like Cal said, this is nothing personal against you; from what I saw of your blog, it looks very interesting, and I hope it works out for you. We just can't list every little fan site out there as a Friend; doing so would cheapen the whole concept of Official Friends. I do thank you for being civil and polite about this. :) —MJ— Comlink 19:53, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

  • I'll hold my vote until others have commented, but in general we expect Official Friend relationships to be mutually beneficial, i.e. that Wookieepedia would benefit from the relationship as well. What potential do you see in terms of the benefit to Wookieepedia from your proposed relationship? (Note that I have not yet looked at your site, but I will do so soon.) —MJ— Comlink 04:10, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Response by MKB

Thank you for the comment Master Jonathan,

At this point the only benefit I can see providing to Wookieepedia would be the highlighting of articles where there is little attention. Since it is my intent to be exhaustive in my quest, I will be referencing the obscure and lesser known levels of Star Wars canon. For example, in my last post on The Invasion of Theed Adventure Game I made reference to the WEG sourcebook No Disintegrations. I referenced it in relation to a story I told about an RPG club I used to run at my former school, and this was the sourcebook we started with. When I linked to Wookieepedia’s page, I noticed very little was written about the source. An astute Wookieepedian can pick up on this, and begin to fill in some more in-depth information. All-in-all, by my blog being recognized as an Official Friend of Wookieepedia, I can assist, in my own way, the recording of Star Wars history, which is what Wookieepedia is attempting to do – maintain a living document of a living and ever expanding universe. Unsigned comment by MKB-SWCP (talk • contribs).

Hmm. I'll wait and see how others feel. In light of the fact that many recent nominations have been mostly ignored, I'll ping a few established users to get some more attention on this. —MJ— Comlink 03:13, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

  3. Per Culator's first two points. However, I should point out that Disney is related to Star Wars in that they own the whole freaking franchise, and I prefer to be as liberal as possible (within reason, of course) with that rule. Plus the wiki does have an article on Episode VII. So in short, I don't buy the "not related to Star Wars" argument, but the other two made by Culator are valid. —MJ— War Room 05:03, March 2, 2013 (UTC)
  4. If in the future the Disney Wiki betters its coverage of Star Wars content and the quality of the site's content in general, I would consider supporting such a partnership.

  1. Yes, I'm a supporter of Darthipedia, but I don't usually edit there much. I must say, even if I'm a wave of one, that it's not healthy to just terminate Darthipedia as a friend just because they terminated Wookieepedia. Many people who contribute to Darthipedia have been banned from Wookieepedia, some for as of yet unclear reasons, and they're probably just miffed. If there could be a dialogue between the two groups, excluding certain people from the Wook that are at the epicenter of the conflict (no offence meant), I'm sure they could work out their differences in a less "they terminated us so we should terminate them just because" fashion. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 21:05, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

CommentsEdit

Here is my response to the concerns Naru has raised, and any questions I can anticipate concerning Darthipedia and certain Darthipedians:

  1. Our link to them does not benefit us; it benefits them. Conversely, their link to us only benefited us, and not them. Therefore, when they eliminated their link to us, we lost all ability to gain anything from our partnership with them. People can't follow the link from their main page to our site now. I don't see the point in a partnership that only benefits one party; we already showed them patronage enough when they were founded and in the many months where our exponentially more popular wiki was a pipeline to theirs.
  2. As far as people from Darthipedia being banned from Wookieepedia—and I assume you mean #wookieepedia as well, not seeming to be able to distinguish the difference between the media and their separate administrative approaches—the decisions have always been made about individual users and not their site itself. And for the "as yet unclear reasons," you're listening to pure propaganda. A reason has always been provided in every instance of a block from this wiki, and those who have been blocked must be attempting to gloss over the reasons they are completely aware of being blocked for. The fact that a fair number of users who have been banned edit Darthipedia is simply a sad coincidence—sad for Darthipedia, that is.
  3. What have people been blocked for? Well, on IRC and even on their wiki and, to some extent, on our wiki, these people have:
    • Slandered Wookieepedians on their wiki, even to the extent of creating a page for the sole purpose of slighting a certain individual. Even when a Darthipedia-friendly Wookieepedian attempted to put a stop to this page, a forum was created on Darthipedia for the sole purpose of slandering the user who raised concerns.
    • Trolled the Wookieepedia IRC channels for months on end, harassing more than a few Wookieepedians and hindering the use of the IRC channels for our wiki's purposes. This includes attempts to disrupt our most recent Mofference.
    • Paraded around personal information about Wookieepedians. Even that of some Wookieepedians who never made their personal information public and do not wish anyone online at all to know it.
  4. My personal opinion of Darthipedia as a site is this: It has long since drifted far from being what it claims to be, what would be of any use to Wookieepedia whatsoever—a Star Wars humor wiki. Founded on the original intent of being a home for ironic wit concerning Star Wars topics, Darthipedia quickly saw a shift in themes to making fun of other topics while cursorily applying Star Wars themes to them. Since then, it has increasingly become something more of an in-joke wiki, such as Uncyclopedia has become, and a slander wiki, not unlike Encylopedia Dramatica. Meanwhile, its community has become a springboard for disruptive, heedless pranks and attempts to annoy people on other wikis and at Wikia itself—sadly often incorporating their wiki into the fun and games. Sure, there is still some decent Star Wars material on Darthipedia, but for the most part it is almost nothing of what it claims to be anymore: a Star Wars humor wiki. I simply see no merit in retaining their partnership, regardless of the relations between their wiki and ours.

I'm done. I'm done explaining why I've done this and why other administrators—as though I'm their mother or something—have done that. Darthipedia can be removed from our Official Friends for wiki-specific reasons, and as always their users, particularly ones who are also our users, will continue to be dealt with on an individual basis concerning their actions on the wiki and in IRC. Anyone with further questions—and I'm only apt to answer good and constructive questions—can send me a private message on Freenode or e-mail me, but anyone who wishes to further criticize my actions or those of my fellow responsible administrators can remove their head from where the sun doesn't shine and accept what's been done. Graestan(Talk) 13:22, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Your a hypocrite, Grae. There are large portions of the Darthipedia community that you have banned just because they insulted you, not wookieepedia, not the site in general, not the users in general, but you. You say how Darthipedians being banned is a coincidence, how they are attempting to gloss over the real reason why they have been banned, but it seems more like you are attempting to gloss over your reasons for each ban, most of which are in #wookieepedia itself, not the site. In truth, you are no better than what you say the darth has become, a general insulter of targeted users. But, I will not vote on this matter because I've voluntarily left wookieepedia. This should not have even been put to a vote, since we cut the line on our end, you should have just discretely taken us off the main page. No, instead you guys put it to a vote so everyone could get riled up. Lets put an end to this conflict so you stop flaunting your power, Grae. No one cares. The Almighty NinjaTyvokka Talk 14:22, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
    • An attack against any real, productive Wookieepedian is an attack against all of Wookieepedia. People are only banned from the site or the related chat for instigating, participating in, or condoning malicious behavior, by word or by deed, against Wookieepedians. You don't have to actively participate in something to be complicit. We know your masters didn't want this explained to the usership at large, which is why it had to be done this way. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 23:57, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
  • My "masters"? Hell, Culator, I did this on my on time, with my own words. No one had anything to do with it but me. This was my response to the situation, not Geeky's, not Madclaw's, not Gump's, and not Goodwood's, since he somehow is included in a list of current and former administrators. This is what I beleive, and what I see happening before my eyes. Their is no lies being whispered in my ear. This is my public opinion on the matter, and I speak for no one. And I'm sure as hell not going to let anyone speak for me, or choose my words. And as for an attack against a "productive Wookieepedian", I've already stated my opinion on how productive Graeston is. The Almighty NinjaTyvokka Talk 22:05, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  • This is precisely why I said that certain people should be excluded from the conversation. Because they cause the conflicts. Anyway as a response to Grae, I'm not going to write a book for each one but:
  1. You cannot use a "one-sided link" excuse because that is not true. The Official Friends don't actually get clicked all that much in the first place and even then, you can't assume that the Wook link is the only one being clicked.
  2. Its true that some parties may have been insulted but, hell, you insult me all the time in both IRC and even here on the Wook upon occasion. How are you going to define an active, productive member of the Wiki? I'm very active and I've been very productive over this past year, should you be banned for insulting me? I don't think so, neither should anyone else. Its a matter of opinion and just because your feelings got hurt, you shouldn't use your admin powers to get revenge.
  3. You and I both know that not all of the people blocked from here and the IRC did those things. Some of them were even told flat out that it was because they were a Darthipedian. Some of them were banned for what they said in #darthipedia, an IRC channel with absolutely no ties to the Wook or its IRC "Don't be a dick" policy, one that is, as I said, broken by certain people, you included Grae, Culator, and especially Toprawa; on a regular basis.
  • I'd like to make this perfectly clear, I say this not against you and the others mentioned but to help heal the rift. What you have said and done to Darthipedians, in some cases, was wrong and broke policy descisions actually set by you and for the people in the channels and the Wook itself. However, the blame is not one sided. Darthipedian have insulted you, in ways and places that should not get them banned but that is a truth. I think we should just let bygones be bygones. I'm not asking for any resolution anymore as both Grae and Culator have shown here that it would not be possible, well I shouldn't say that, accepted by the administration or the population that follows the administration. I'm sorry if I was ted your time by writing that and causing you to respong Grae, Nina, and Culator. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 22:17, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
