  1. IRC rules. Formalized and expanded official rules for Wookieepedia:IRC.
  2. Related Categories. Added a bullet point to Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Category defining use of {{RelatedCategories}}
  3. Naming policy. The following amendments were made:
    • Wookieepedia:Naming policy#Canon and Legends addition: "Alternatively, a Legends subject may use as its article title a name that would otherwise be a redirect to its Canon counterpart (example: Palpatine is the title of the Legends article rather than redirecting to Darth Sidious)."
    • Wookieepedia:Naming policy#Disambiguation will now be divided into two subsections, "Disambiguation by continuity" and "Disambiguation between continuities"
      • "Disambiguation by continuity" addition: "The following section applies exclusively to intra-continuity disambiguation cases. Do not apply these rules to cross-continuity cases."
    • Created new policy for comic book article titles, in which the prefix "Star Wars:" will be omitted from most individual comic issues, similar to how Wookieepedia treats novels
  4. Quote of the Day. Agreed to re-add the QOTD feature to the Main Page as a randomized queue, with the caveat that it may re-purposed with a new design and moved down in the page in the future
  5. WookieeNews. General agreement to archive and retire Wookieepedia:Wookieenews, removing any links from the Main Page.
  6. Appearances and Sources. The following amendments were made to Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Appearances and Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Sources:
    • Remove following clause from Appearances: "For comics, link to the individual issue, unless a subject appears in every issue of a story arc." Replace it with: "Comic books will be listed strictly by individual issue. Do not list comic story arcs, even if a subject appears in every issue of the arc."
    • Approved inclusion of "Non-canon appearances" subsection of Appearances, which will list non-canon appearances in in-universe chronological order
    • Approved inclusion of "Non-canon sources" subsection of Sources, which will list non-canon sources by real-world publication date
  7. External links. Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#External links and Wookieepedia:Layout Guide/Out-of-universe#External links have been rewritten to define this section's purpose. The OOU page notably now includes the following: "Ideally, real-world product articles, such as books or comics, will list at least one external link to an official product page from the publisher or manufacturer. If no such link exists, list the subject's Amazon.com product page. The Amazon page may be listed in addition to an official product page if it contains critical information not found on the product page, such as a publication date."
  8. Star Wars parodies. The following items have been added to the Layout Guide:
  9. FAN, GAN, and CAN. The following amendments were made to the article-nomination rules:
    • FAN:
      • Rule 9 will now read: "…have no redlinks."
      • Remove Rule 10: "…have significant information from all sources and appearances, especially a biography for character articles."
      • Remove Rule 11: "…not have been previously featured on the Main Page. Otherwise, it can only be restored to featured status."
      • Remove Rule 12, integrating it with Rule 4, which will now read: "…be fully referenced, including all quotes and images. See Wookieepedia:Sourcing for more information."

    • GAN:
      • Remove Rule 10: "…have comprehensive detail with all information covered from all sources and appearances."
      • Remove Rule 11, integrating it with Rule 4, which will now read: "…be fully referenced, including all quotes and images. See Wookieepedia:Sourcing for more information."
      • Add new Rule at bottom of list: "…be properly titled in accordance with Wookieepedia's treatment of Canon and Legends articles; i.e., no nomination may have '/Canon' in the title."
    • CAN:
      • Remove Rule 9: "…have all relevant canon information presented."
      • Remove Rule 10, integrating it with Rule 4, which will now read: "…be fully referenced, including all quotes and images. See Wookieepedia:Sourcing for more information."
      • Add new Rule at bottom of list: "…be properly titled in accordance with Wookieepedia's treatment of Canon and Legends articles; i.e., no nomination may have '/Canon' in the title."
  10. Discussions. Created Wookieepedia:Discussions to define the wiki's relationship with the Discussions feature.
  11. Site redesign. The Wookieepedia administration now reserves the right to implement release-specific design changes (such as to coincide with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) to the wiki, including the Main Page, skin, and wordmark, without needing to go through a consensus forum for each change.
  12. Requests for user rights. Wookieepedia:Requests for user rights#Requests for adminship item 5 will now read: "They have had some form of major wiki contribution."

  1. Consensus policy: Approved rewrite of Wookieepedia:Consensus.
  2. Official Friends of Wookieepedia:
    • Approved addition of "Nominations must demonstrate a permanent public connection to Wookieepedia, such as through a website's affiliation section. This may be excused for Star Wars VIPs." to Selection process section on OFOW.

      • Approved removal of "As a general rule" from "As a general rule, a species must have one of the following to necessitate an article:"
    • Approved addition of a "Battle droids" section, with the following content: "Articles may only be granted to unidentified battle droids who play a significant plot role or who have significant dialogue."

    • Approved addition of "...include a "Behind the scenes" section for in-universe articles." to FAN rules.
  7. Layout Guide: Approved addition of "Images placed in articles must be as high quality as possible, as source availability and technical restraints permit. For example, certain leeway may be granted to video game screenshots, which present particular difficulty for obtaining high-resolution images." in the Images section of Wookieepedia:Layout Guide. This was approved in vote 6.3.
  8. Naming policy: Approved addition of a "Hutts" section under Wookieepedia:Naming policy#Characters, with the following content: "Use a Hutt's full clan name when provided (example: Jabba Desilijic Tiure).

  9. Sourcing policy, Rules section:
    • Approved addition of a new rule in Wookieepedia:Sourcing#Rules, reading "When citing an external link, a permanent archival link must also be included in the citation template if available.

    • Approved addition of a subclause under rule 10 (former rule 9) in Wookieepedia:Sourcing#Rules, reading "The Wookieepedia community, particularly the article-reviewing panels through the article-nomination processes, may judge the validity of expired external links, including social media posts, that lack screenshots.

Mofference results:

  1. Voting eligibility policy. Wookieepedia:Single-issue voters renamed to Wookieepedia:Voting eligibility policy to reflect revision of purpose over time. New navigation shortcut to be located at WP:VOTE and listed in {{Title-shortcut}}, with the old (deprecated) redirect remaining available at WP:SIV and an abbreviation redirect also available at WP:VEP.
  2. Public relations. Wookieepedia Public Relations team officially commissioned by community, see meeting log for further details on membership and terms.
  3. Wikia Helpers. Official policy defined for Wikia Helpers on Wookieepedia: Wikia Helpers are not to use their Wikia-wide sysop powers on Wookieepedia unless they are also locally-elected Administrators/Bureaucrats, which none currently are. Violation will be treated per the blocking policy. Helpers, like Staff, cannot be blocked from Wookieepedia, but they will be sanctioned as "effectively blocked"; i.e., any actions they take will be rolled back, they may be blocked from IRC, etc.
    1. The Mofference was quickly and briefly reopened after closing while we still had enough attendees for a quorum (over 10) to add an addendum to this: As Wikia Helpers have access to information only Wookieepedia Administrators and Bureaucrats can normally see (deleted pages/revisions, edit filter logs, etc.), any release of private information by Wikia Helpers will also be treated punitively by Wookieepedia Administration and also immediately reported to Wikia Staff.
  4. Image quality requirement. The image quality requirement from rule #16 of the FAN and GAN process (An article must... include a reasonable number of images of sufficient quality to illustrate the article, if said images are available.) is to be applied to the CAN process.
  5. Special events. Wookieepedia Administrators and Wikia Staff will be granted the ability to create content (blogs, video, etc.) for special events without requiring a CT for every instance. To clarify, this is specifically for Administrators and Staff, blogs are not to be enabled for users, and user attempts to upload videos are still punishable by death.
  6. Talk page policy. Talk page policy amendments:
    1. Add item: "All Talk pages containing messages should have a {{Talkheader}}. Please do not create a Talk page solely to add {{Talkheader}}."
    2. Add under existing item 4: "Removal of the content of the Welcome template ({{W}}} without archival is permissible with the assumption that the user has read and understood the information contained therein."
  7. Barn-burners. Due to the nature of such events to flood the nomination queues with low-quality items, the type of events commonly known as "barn-burners," in which users are enlisted to produce status articles germane to a particular topic en masse, are hereby prohibited from being run as officially-sanctioned events. They shall not be advertised in the Senate Hall, sitenotice/community corner, et cetera. Users are still encouraged to pursue their own personal nomination projects, WookieeProjects may run their own status article quality drives (with the hope that they eschew the quantity-over quality principle of the "barn-burner"), and so on, but no further sitewide "barn-burners" may occur.
  8. WP:NOT (a dictionary). An additional "notability"-type policy has been implemented at WP:NOT identifying Wookieepedia as "not a dictionary" and enabling speedy deletion of articles that are mere real-world dictionary definitions. Existing qualifying articles will be identified and trash compacted, and new articles will be speedy-deleted, but speedy deletion may always be contested with {{Holdon}}. A specific example sentence was removed from the proposal, but as the rule is worded it will function just as well for the intended purpose as if it remained in there anyway. Shortcut WP:NOTDICTIONARY will be installed, WP:DICT was also suggested.
  9. Episode VII spoilers. A new unique spoiler template specifically for spoilers from Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens was proposed, approved, and shall be created at {{VIIspoiler}}.
  10. Atlas star systems. Star systems that were only ever named in The Essential Atlas or the online companion and not explicitly named elsewhere, and are therefore named only for a well-known celestial object with its own given name, must be tagged with the {{Conjecture}} tag.

Mofference results:

  1. Expanded Universe vs. Star Wars Legends. Expanded Universe to be moved to Star Wars Legends.
  2. Movie novelizations. The film novelizations and junior film novelizations will be treated as non-canon Legends material within Wookieepedia articles. Canon articles will neither cite information from them nor list them in the Appearances list.
  3. Notability policy. The following will be added to Wookieepedia:Notability policy#New canon subjects: "An exception to this rule are battles and other events, as the vast majority of these have conjectural names."
  4. Star Wars Insider. The following will be added to Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Sources: "Beginning with the short story "Blade Squadron" in Star Wars Insider 149150, all Insider fiction is considered part of the new canon and must be documented only within Canon articles. Insider fiction prior to issues 149–150 will be documented in Legends articles. With regards to non-fiction Insider articles beginning with issue 150, for subjects that remain canon or have been re-canonized in the new canon and are mentioned in Insider articles, those Insider articles will be documented within Canon articles' Sources lists. Likewise, subjects that are mentioned in Insider articles by their Legends names and have not been re-canonized will be documented within Legends articles' Sources lists until such a time that the subject is re-canonized, at which point all subsequent Insider mentions will be documented within a subject's Canon article. Previous Insider mentions in a Legends Sources list will not be moved to a subject's Canon Sources list."
  5. Wookify. Wookieepedia:Wookify to be deleted. {{Wookify}} will be deprecated and replaced with {{Cleanup}}.
  6. New articles. No consensus to adopt proposed maintenance template regarding poorly created new articles. New parameters may be added to {{Cleanup}} for specific maintenance issues as needed.
  7. Single-issue voters. The following amendment will be made to Wookieepedia:Single-issue voters (difference in bold): "Users must make 50 non-reverted, non-deleted mainspace edits within the previous 6 months prior to the start of a given forum to be eligible to vote. User page and talk page edits do not apply. Edit totals remain pursuant to the overall productivity requirement."
  8. Planet articles. The following will be added to Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Planet and moon articles, item 2: "*Note: Planet articles will not document chronological territorial affiliations unless the planet, moon, etc. is explicitly identified on a map as belonging to a given territory. For example, The Essential Atlas and The Essential Guide to Warfare document the many shifting territorial boundaries throughout Star Wars history on galactic maps. Unless a planet is explicitly identified on one of these maps as belonging to a territory, such as the Imperial Remnant or Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire, do not list the territory among the planet's affiliations in the article's infobox or body."
  9. Signature policy. The following amendments will be added to Wookieepedia:Signature policy:
    • Item 6 of customized signatures will now read: "Your signature must include the default timestamp in all public usage. Additionally, the timestamp must include the following:"
    • Item 6.2 of customized signatures will now read: "The timestamp must be displayed in its default timestamp form with all information present."
    • The following is now prohibited in customized signatures: HTML tables and/or Wiki tables
  10. Page titles. Page titles with parenthetical descriptors will now format the parenthetical descriptors within {{C}}.
  11. QDB. No vote held regarding JangFett's proposed QDB overhaul. Jang is free to implement new system whenever as a non-wiki entity.
  12. Infobox formatting. The following will be added to Wookieepedia:Layout Guide#Infoboxes: "When listing multiple items in a single infobox field, including cascading items, use bullets to offset each item, including the first item listed. Do not use blank indentations."
  13. Welcome Bot. The Wikia Welcome Bot will be activated on an interim basis until SFH is ready to resume his welcoming role.
  14. Citing social media posts. When citing social media posts (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.) in articles, an accompanying screenshot of the post must be uploaded to Wookieepedia and linked in the reference itself. This is done to combat the high frequency with which social media posts containing critical information are permanently removed and not available through archives.
  15. Wikia. The following items were discussed regarding Wookieepedia's relationship to Wikia:
    • The following will be added to Wookieepedia:What Wookieepedia is not#Wookieepedia is not Wikia: "Wookieepedia is hosted by Wikia, but Wookieepedia is not Wikia, Wookieepedia is not any other wiki, and Wookieepedia is certainly not 'a Wikia.' Wookieepedia is a wiki that found a home on Wikia long ago, before Wikia decided to focus more on social networking and advertising than on hosting wikis, and unlike other sites hosted on Wikia, Wookieepedia retains its original focus: building an encyclopedia.
"To this end, Wookieepedia does not, as a general rule, want fancy gadgets and pretty toys and goofy trim, Wookieepedia just wants a reliable site with a host that does not meddle in its affairs. We would hope that Wikia respects the will of our community as reflected by the site feature policy and consensus policy. Any Wikia staff who also hold elected positions at Wookieepedia must obey Wookieepedia policy and consensus above Wikia policy and mandates. Failure to do so will result in removal of all special user rights and privileges.
"Users who are unfamiliar with Wookieepedia may not appreciate our rules at first, but we advise you to remember the old adage, 'don't knock it 'til you try it.' We think we've done pretty well so far. We also advise everyone to consult the consensus and single-issue voter policies before attempting to change the system."

  • CT: Forum:CT Archive/MOS and LG updates:
    • Vote 1: New provisions added to Layout Guide's Eras tag section
    • Vote 2: Add the following to Layout Guide's "Appearances" section: "Articles on topics within a specific continuity should only list appearances that are fall under that specific continuity. For example, the Canon version of the Jedi Order article should not list issues of Star Wars: Republic or the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, and the Legends version of the Anakin Skywalker article should not list Tarkin or Lords of the Sith."
    • Vote 3: Add the following to Layout Guide's "Sources" section: "For Canon articles, Encyclopedia entries, which are subject to modification at any time, should be listed at the end of the Sources section. For Legends articles, Encyclopedia entries and other applicable StarWars.com content subject to modification should be listed as if their publication date was April 25, 2014 (the day the Expanded Universe continuity was discontinued)."
    • Vote 4: Add the following to Manual of Style's "List for 'Appearances' section": "Star Wars material that is considered part of both the Legends continuity and the new Star Wars canon should divide its use of the {{App}} template. Each subsection of the template should use the two alternate parameters—"c-characters" and "l-characters" for the Characters field—to list the canon and Legends appearances."
    • Vote 5: Add the following to Manual of Style's "Linking" section: "Articles within a specific continuity should only link to other articles within that continuity, with the only exception being the article's "Behind the scenes" section. For example, the canon Yoda article should not link to the Legends continuity's article on Yoda's species." Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 20:05, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

  1. Grae and Imp will come up with changes to the welcome template. Any objections should be left on a talk page they will specify. CT will not be created, but specifics will be worked out by the aforementioned Grae and Imp.
  2. Admin age exception: contributors under 18 who want to become admins must have made valuable contributions for 2 years before being RFA'd. This sets an effective age floor at 15.
  3. The interested parties will create new search icons, remove old bad ones, and in general work their will on icons. . . .from a SH page coming soon, probably.
  4. Mr./Ms SW are staying. Their presence in sitenotice is not.
  5. Absent admins will be contacted after 4 months of absence. They will be warned of impending removal of their power after 5 months of absence with no communication. After six months of not hearing from a given absent admin, they will lose their adminship via Wikia staff removal. And showing up in #wookieepedia does not count as contribution to the website.
  6. No consensus on making civility a policy.
  7. Comments on the Mofference agenda prior to the Mofference will be reverted and/or the user leaving comments will be reminded to save their thought for the Mofference. Save the keystrokes for the meeting.
  8. Comic quotes will be limited to italics only for emphasis.
  9. This phrase will be added to Wookieepedia:Consensus: "After one week from the start of voting on an issue, if the votes overwhelmingly support one option, the thread may be closed early."
  10. Plating color will be added to droid infoboxes.
  11. Ataru's RFP page draft is epic win and will be implemented after he adds reason fields and archive capabilities.
  12. WP:AP will be gently laid to rest. bahleeted, just like WP:UP.
  13. Postponed sector capitalization issue until Essential Atlas.
  14. Enochf's proposal approved, with the corollary that quotes must have six months minimum in between their appearance on the Main Page.
    • Proposal is: Be it resolved that a QOTD can be renominated, providing that the vote threshold be raised. Whereas a first-time QOTD requires a total of +10, a second-time QOTD would require a higher total, a third-time QOTD higher still. My suggestion is that the vote threshold be raised by +5 for every time: +15 for a second appearance, +20 for third, etc. An interval of +3 might also be acceptable. I'll go with the consensus, assuming there's agreement on the renomination system.
    • What constitutes a renominated quote will be somewhat broad. A dialogue which includes a previous QOTD, but expands on it will be considered a renomination. Also, vice versa, a quote that has been included in a previous QOTD dialogue will also be considered a renomination. The nominator is free and encouraged to rewrite the tagline and is also free to inject their own [bracketed sections] describing action; the quote itself must remain verbatim from the source material.
  15. WP:DASH is now official policy.
  16. Succession boxes will be revamped per Fiolli's proposal.
  17. The policy outlined in Forum:CT Archive/Single issue voters will now apply to Mofferences. I.e., one must have 50 main space edits in order to attend. Results posted by Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 16:31, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

    • Consensus was to keep the Knowledge Bank with some conditions: that it is stressed on the forum page that only verifiable answers may be given; that "KB" be automatically added to the names of each Knowledge Bank thread that is created (as well as "CT" to Consensus Track, "SH" to Senate Hall, and "NB" to Administrators' Noticeboard) in order to easily identify KB threads on the RCs; and finally that any users who take exception to the Knowledge Bank may leave it to be dealt with by those who are more willing.
    • Consensus was to advertise the policy and consensus updates page on the sitenotice from time to time as well as to add a link to the updates page to the new user welcome message as well as the Monobook sidebar.
    • Wookieepedia:Userbox proposal – It was decided to kill this page, as its function has steadily decreased over time. In its place, a more updated guide to making custom userboxes will be created.
    • It was decided to create both a header template as well as a sectional template in order to warn users of potential conflicting sources with regards to impending conflicts dealing with Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    • The addition of a "recently featured" link to the FA space on the Main Page in anticipation of the one-FA-per-day system's arrival was approved.
    • Consensus was not to relax the featured article rules in cases where a "Personality and traits" section would be somewhat difficult.
    • There was no consensus as to whether collapsible appearances for television episodes should be allowed.
    • It was decided that interviews should not be publicized off the site for now.
    • Consensus was to allow the creation of similar contests to Coolest Thing Ever or Lamest Thing Ever, as well as a more competitive contest involving Good article nominations.
    • There was no consensus as to whether family fields should be added to character infoboxes.
    • There was no consensus on whether eras tags should be used for when the subject appeared in canon sources, or it can be conjectured that the subject existed in the time period.
    • Consensus was to keep hair and eye color as infobox fields; no consensus on skin color as an infobox field.
    • Consensus was to add CT to the Monobook sidebar.
    • Consensus was to Add links establishing Firefox as the "official browser" of the site for ease of viewing.
    • It was decided that there should be a good article removal/review process, to be hashed out later in consensus threads.
    • Starting with the set of nominations currently on the page, good article nominations will have to have five support votes in addition to the nominator's vote for quality assurance, similar to the current FAN system.
