Official Friends of WookieepediaEdit

I think it would be a good idea to establish - and publicly acknowledge - working relationships with other Star Wars fan sites, in order to further integrate ourselves into the Star Wars community.

This could involve us having a small section at the bottom of our main page, entitled "Official Friends of Wookieepedia", containing links to our Official Friends. In return, all we would be asking for is some sort of endorsement from our Friends; such as a link to us, or a news feature. Or they could even just come to our site and sign our "Official Friends" page :-)

A good place to start would be TheForce.net, which already provides a link to Wookieepedia on every page of the Jedi Council Forums, not to mention Mike Cooper's recent article.

And now that we are about to promote our 1st Anniversary, the timing coudn't be any better :-)

Thoughts? --Azizlight 03:10, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm for it. Which ones would we go to? I have to admit, the only Star wars fansites I really know of are us, TFN, SuperShadow (heh), Stardestroyer.net, and the Dark Horse boards. Dammit, I had an idea and I just lost it. Kuralyov 03:24, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
    • If SuperShadow puts up a "Friend of Wookieepedia" link, I'm leaving. CooperTFN 07:31, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
      • You and me both!  :p WhiteBoy 15:28, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
  • I know a way around that Coop, we should have concensuses on what sites should or should not be labeled as official friends. DarthMaul431 21:39, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Sounds good to me. I'd suggest it be a nomination process similar to our Admin selection. WhiteBoy 15:28, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Jedi and categorizingEdit

Another category question popped up while I was roaming through the Jedi character category: If a Jedi is listed in one or more subcategories of the character category (like Jedi Masters, Jedi Generals etc.), do we still list the Jedi in the character category as well? That's how it's done in most cases right now, but it seems kind of superfluous to me... --Tinwe 12:09, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

    • I think if the Jedi can be specifically placed in a Jedi subcategory like Master or General, then it shouldn't be placed in the generic Jedi character category. --Xwing328 23:19, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, I disagree. It helps to have a comprehensive list of Jedi even if they do belong in a specific subset as well--Erl 21:29, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
        • Isn't that why there is a List of Jedi? --Xwing328 21:56, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

DatesEdit

Maybe I'm having a change of heart, but another thing has occured to me while on Wookieevacation. Maybe now we can make articles for dates, such as May 19 to denote SW-related events that happen on those days. We do have enough articles for something like this now. -- Riffsyphon1024 23:43, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

  • I suppose there've been enough births, deaths, novels, comics, video games etc to have significant content for each day; only problem would be rounding up all the release dates and such, and even that's rather trivial, so it sounds good to me. --MarcK [talk] 03:21, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Help! Edit

I'm having trouble uploading pictures. Sometimes it works, but it usually says:

"." is not a recommended image file format.

Please tell me what's wrong. Aiddat 21:56, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Are you on a Mac? It sounds like your images have no traditional file type. Their names should end with ".jpg" or another image format. CooperTFN 03:18, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
  • This is no Mac (it's Windows XP to be precise), and I have file extensions. Hmm, let me try uploading again. Aiddat
  • (A moment later.) NOOOOOOOO!!! This is really strange. I just checked to make sure the extension didn't accidently get cut off when it's actually in the upload thingy.... Is anyone else having this problem or know how to solve it? Aiddat
    • You can email me the pic, and I'll take a look at it. WhiteBoy 15:30, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes, I have Galactic Battlegrounds, and I would be glad to take screenshots for it. Aiddat
  • Thanks. That's strange because jpgs didn't seem to work for me. Aiddat 14:19, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Wookieepedians by region Edit

For those who didn't know... In addition to our Wookieepedians by region page, we also have a Frappr group. Cool! WhiteBoy 16:27, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Colored Image Edit

This relates specifically to Bodo Baas but it could potentially reach farther. I edited this image File:Bodo Baas.gif so that it would be this image: File:Bodo Baas color.jpg. Is it usable on the Bodo Bass page? I know fan images are generally frowned upon but it is colored based on a canon image and it is only that: a coloring of an existing canon image. If everyone is against it, that's fine. I just wanted to get some discussion because it wasn't happening at the Bodo Baas page. This could come into play in the future as well as there are other B & W images around here.--DannyBoy7783 18:36, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

  • For - I like it. Yeah, I agree, it is an edited cannon image, so it's not too different to other images here. As an aside, maybe do some shadowing and highlights? -- 61.69.160.156 00:47, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Infobox templates Edit

I would like to move templates such as Infobox Book to an OOU infobox templates subcategory under Infobox templates.

This could include the following along with many others from Uncategorized templates:

Any thougts? --Xwing328 21:21, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Odd Category Error Edit

This is the list of pages with the {{Tales1-20}} template. According to the markup, it should put every page it's on into Category:Star Wars Tales articles of ambiguous canonicity. Problem is, looking at that category, there are a heck of a lot that aren't. Even odder, looking at the pages themselves with the template, at the bottom under categories it lists that very category they don't appear in. Is it something in the Wiki software that just doesn't categorize them properly or what? It's weirder that it works in some and not others. - Lord Hydronium 11:20, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

  • The category has been added to the template relatively recently. For the changes to apply, one needs to resave (or edit and save) pages that use the template. - Sikon [Talk] 15:21, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Star Wars Tales InfoboxEdit

Could someone talented build a lovely Star Wars Tales Story infobox? There are over 100 star wars tales, yet at the moment we're just using a modified comic book one and I think it deserves its own. The fields should include -

  • Issue No.
  • TPB Collection
  • No. of Pages
  • Script
  • Pencils
  • Inks
  • Colours
  • Letters
  • Editor
  • Canon References

Hopefully it would include the title at the top and an image as well. Thanks. KastMorben

Prevent VandalismEdit

Vandalism has to stop. To prevent it, we should limit editing to signed-on users. Lt. 1993 14:32, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Against. Wikipedia and Uncyclopedia suffer from vandalism much more than we do, but they don't forbid anons to contribute. - Sikon [Talk] 14:57, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
    • Perhaps they should...--DannyBoy7783 20:46, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
      • Or perhaps allow all to edit, but ban any vandal, even if minor, right away. Lt. 1993 00:42, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
        • But then we get Supreme Court battles over what is vandalism, and what was just a 10 year old trying to contribute. Lonnyd 10:43, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Upload File page Edit

Would it be possible to add a paragraph to the upload file page saying that the source of the file and an appropriate copyright tag(with link to image copyright tags) should be placed in the summary for the upload? A lot of people aren't doing that, and haven't done that in the past, and making sure everybody knows they're supposed to would probably help. Yrfeloran 20:30, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

  • It's possible by editing MediaWiki:Uploadtext. - Sikon [Talk] 05:24, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
    • Think an admin needs to do it, though. Yrfeloran 19:10, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
    • How's that? --MarcK [talk] 19:17, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
      • Yay! We still don't have the mentioned box to check to affirm no copyrights are being violated, but that's a really minor issue - maybe just take that text out? Yrfeloran 19:38, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
      • How strange...it used to be there. Oh well, removed. --MarcK [talk] 22:36, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Wookieepedia mirror Edit

This wiki apparantly has articles on all Sci-Fi and Fantasy topics. Anyways, a number of Star Wars articles are copied directly from here. See [1], [2]. They even go so far as copying our talk pages and user pages! See [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9].-LtNOWIS 03:30, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

  • I say let 'em. Their pages are a joke compared to ours (they're missing a ton of images, and their infoboxes are all blank) and the wiki probably gets about 40 hits a month (just look at their recent changes, it's pretty much dead). The user and talk pages is just kind of dumb—why on earth would they need (or even want) them? RMF 03:33, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
  • They probably took a database backup from several sites and loaded them on their own server. All the text on Wookieepedia actually compresses to a 10 megabyte file. I downloaded it once, just for fun, and it's actually an ingeniously simple format. —Darth Culator (talk) 03:54, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Also [10] -- Riffsyphon1024 17:32, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
  • My user page is deleted for some reason. :( --Imp 19:54, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

who owns what? Edit

grettings. i'm currently writing a large series; it consists of 19 2part movies and 1 massive videogame. now, i'm not exactly sure what went down with george and fox and everyone owning what. could someone give me some info on what fox owns of star wars and what george owns.(charcters, titles, sequels, etc.)if i sell my series(i have 5;1 main or anchor and 4 branching trilogies.)to a studio, how can i expect to get screwed? as much info as i can gather would be a great help. also checkout or subcribe to my blogs. Unsigned comment by Norton420 (talk • contribs).

  • A good place to start would be the Empire of Dreams documentary that's on the Star Wars trilogy DVD. It has alot of behind-the-scenes info, though I'm not sure it specifically has what you're looking for. WhiteBoy 20:09, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
    • George owns everything. The prequels were essentially the most expensive independent films ever made. And he doesn't use other people's story proposals; especially not for films. CooperTFN 20:16, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Peer review Edit

I've created Wookieepedia:Peer review as an experimental page (indeed a shameless copy of the Wikipedia peer review) where people can post links to articles they consider near-feature quality and gather feedback and suggestions for improvement. I hope this can put some tension off WP:FA and WP:ID. - Sikon [Talk] 05:47, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Pablo Hidalgo's artworkEdit

There's been some discussion on the Em TeeDee page whether images from this site (drawn by Pablo Hidalgo) can be used on Wookieepedia. I'm inclined to think it's fan art, but everyone doesn't see it that way. Thoughts? --Tinwe 12:42, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Unless the image has been published in a licensed medium, it is fan art. —Darth Culator (talk) 13:28, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
    • What if the "fan art" image is much better than the canon option available? Perhaps it is just me but I think the image that was there prior was horrible. Can exceptions be made on a case by case basis?--DannyBoy7783 14:00, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
      • Maybe I'm being paranoid, but I just don't like where that could lead. Even edited versions of official pictures are pushing the limits of canonicity about as far as I'd want to go. —Darth Culator (talk) 22:01, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
        • It would appear that the argument is now moot. Imp deleted the image from the wiki...*sigh*--DannyBoy7783 23:50, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Infobox problemsEdit

There are two things I've been noticing a lot lately with the new character infoboxes. First, there should not be a blank line after the }} at the end of the infobox and the beginning of the article. That line stays there and makes the text start lower than the image. Second, and maybe this is just me, but I don't think we should blow up images just to fit the infobox. Shrinking is fine, but when you make a picture bigger, it looks crappy. If the image isn't big enough, upload a better one. But for the meantime, just set the width to the image's actual width. Anyone disagree? -- Ozzel 22:07, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

  • You're absolutely right. We found that out the spacing thing on the ship infobox but I don't know how much the character infoboxes are carrying over from that project. And the image thing is a peculiarity of the new MediaWiki software. Under the old version, the software just used the actual size if a pixel size larger than the image was specified, and I wish the new version behaved the same. But you don't need to specify the size if the image is smaller than the size of your infobox, just leave off the "|300px" (or whatever size you're using) in the image link. —Darth Culator (talk) 22:41, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup proposalEdit

Can we update the cleanup tag? I have a good idea. There could be a picture of Han and Greedo (who is dead) sitting at the cantina table. A quote above it says "sorry about the mess". Opinions? Lt. 1993 00:48, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Ah, good point. I think it would work. -- Riffsyphon1024 15:31, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Go ahead. - Sikon [Talk] 15:34, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
      • Done. How does it look? Lt. 1993 20:30, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
100px Sorry about the mess.

This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of article quality.
Please follow the guidelines in the Manual of Style and complete this article to the highest level of quality before continuing on smaller articles.

Meeting has started Edit

Wanna you want to join us for the meeting going on right now? WhiteBoy 01:13, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Now that sounded intelligent! WhiteBoy 23:05, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Monthly Challenge Edit

  • I thought of another possible way to boost our article totals or improve the wookiepedia in general, in the form of a contest. Every month there is a different type of challenge that states a list of tasks to do for that month. An example of a monthly challenge list could be:
- Create 3 NEW articles containing at least 3 paragraphs.
- Add enough images to remove 2 articles from the imageless category.
- Create 1 article currently listed as a redlink.
- Add more information to 5 stub articles.

There would be a page for the contest that participants add their name to and list the articles they created fixed, etc (and proof of it would obviously be seen in their contributions page and the article's history page). This doesn't necessarily have to be a monthly thing, it could weekly if that seems better. Does this sound like a good idea? DarthMaul431 01:27, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Not bad. It will further better existing articles themselves, which is needed most here. -- Riffsyphon1024 15:23, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Sounds like a great idea to me! I say we do it! Star Wars Guy 01:21, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Should I add this to the topics for discussion at the next meeting? DarthMaul431 22:39, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
  • I like this idea! You can add it to the agenda for the next meeting if you like. Or maybe add a consensus track detailing how you see it working. Or depending on what you have in mind, maybe add an award proposal. WhiteBoy 08:03, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Timestamping sourceless articles Edit

This system is borrowed from, as usual, Uncyclopedia. Its goal is to provide simplified deletion for fanon and unclutter VFD.

I modified {{sources}} and {{sources-date}} so that articles are added to both Category:Sourceless and Category:Sourceless tagged. Articles in the latter are ordered by the week they were tagged on, or, actually, the remainder of its division by 6 (to prevent incorrect categorization in case of two-digit numbers). Actually, mod6 is irrelevant.

What's relevant is, one can easily identify articles that stayed sourceless for more than a week. These are articles whose number differs from the current week mod6 by more than one. For example, if Category:Sourceless tagged says "Current week: 3" and an article is included in the category under the header 1, it can be deleted. Articles under the header 5 can be deleted starting with week 1, and articles under the header 6 can be deleted starting with week 2.

Also, the usage of sources-date is favored over sources because it adds a timestamp (although it has nothing to do with the ordered-by-date category). - Sikon [Talk] 14:53, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Search IconEdit

I like the Wookieepedia style but this is slightly broken by the "wikicities" search icon. Just upload a new icon to Search logo -- TheDarkArchon 16:45, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Agree. --UVnet 22:25, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Someone asked me about doing a new one a bit ago. I'll get to it. -- Dark Spork 00:39, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Awesome Search Icon, Spork. -- Riffsyphon1024 21:20, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Addition to FA criteria Edit

I think we should add something like this:

10. ...have a Behind the Scenes section.

or even

10. ...have a decent/detailed/whatever Behind the Scenes section.

What say you? --UVnet 22:19, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

  • I don't think it should be a strict requirement, as there'll be some subjects that won't really have anything interesting to put in the BTS section. Maybe just make it part of criterion #1 and have it say "if applicable, make the Behind the Scenes section as detailed and complete as possible" (or something along those lines, maybe a little shorter). --MarcK [talk] 09:06, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
    • To be completely honest... I don't think so. I mean what can't have a BTS section? (exept for BTS articles). Every single in-universe concept in Star Wars must have originated in:

A. Some sort of work.
B. A person (or persons) who invented it.

that's enough for the minimum BTS section.

  • Naming which works they're from is what Sources and Appearances are for. Behind the Scenes shouldn't be necessary unless there's something notewothy to put in it. "Daala was created by Kevin J. Anderson" isn't noteworthy. CooperTFN 19:39, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Look at Luminara Unduli. By doing what you said I should go to Appearances and see that she appeared for the First time in Cloak of Deception. If I do what you said that mean she was invented by James Luceno. But she clearly wasn't. --UVnet 03:18, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
      • Luminara cameoing in Cloak of Deception to set the stage for her appearance in AotC is an example of something that's notable. Which is funny, since it's not mentioned. Going back to my example, "Daala was created by Kevin J. Anderson" is not. CooperTFN 08:07, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Quote by Abel G. Peña for Wookieepedia's 1st AnniversaryEdit

Abel G. Peña has very kindly supplied us with a great quote that we can use to help promote Wookieepedia's 1st Anniversary. Thank you so much Abel!!!

"Wookieepedia is a lavish and stunning homage to the Star Wars pop cultural phenomenon. Thanks to its professional appearance, the scope of its content, the quality of its writers and diligence of its administrators, Wookieepedia has become a valuable resource to fans both casual and obsessive, as well as to Star Wars authors. It's becoming the new nexus for everyone who wants to know as much as Yoda about that galaxy far, far away."
Abel G. Peña

--Azizlight 22:28, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Wow! Thank you indeed! Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 01:11, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Ditto, Abel! WhiteBoy 19:12, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Should we post it on the Main Page? --Azizlight 23:51, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Let's not go crazy. =) CooperTFN 23:55, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Yep, Abel will always be there for us and he's a damn good writer too. -- Riffsyphon1024 22:38, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Tag proposalEdit

For those who are to be banned, I have come up with a few tag design to put on his userpage. Opinions? I am not sure how exactly a ban works, does it work through a vote? Decide which one is best and correct and if we can use it. Lt. 1993 16:37, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Windu Angry He is too dangerous to be kept alive!

This user is undergoing a ban. Please see the user's talk page to decide his fate.

Windu Angry The Senate will decide your fate.

This user is undergoing a ban. Please see the user's talk page to decide his fate.

Windu Angry He is too dangerous to be kept alive!

This user is undergoing a ban. May his/her future fate be an example to other troublemakers.

  • Bans are for vandals, so admins are the judge and the executioner. I like the last one.  :) WhiteBoy 18:32, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Yeah, the last one's most appropriate. CooperTFN 18:45, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
  • It's useless; there are no votes to decide blocks. Users cannot be "undergoing a ban", they're either banned or not. --Imp 19:28, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
    • It's worth using if they're only banned temporarily. CooperTFN 19:50, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
      • Precisely. Most bans are by IP address, so should not be permanent. Plus it serves as a notification to the user that they have been added to the WP:VIP where they can go to plead for mercy (until an admin bans them). WhiteBoy 19:54, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
        • I think I'll take this, modify it, and replace {{banned}}. WhiteBoy 19:57, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Locked double redirects Edit

There are now only four double redirects on Wookieepedia, and these only still exist because they're locked. It would be nice if an admin would fix them. —Darth Culator (talk) 19:35, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Imp took care of it. I unlocked them because I didn't see any reason to lock them. WhiteBoy 20:13, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Article gallery Edit

This is just an idea/proposal but some pages are not long enough to allow for more than 1 image but sometimes additional images are quite useful. Also, some articles have an excess of images in certain section or in general. This might be an invitation for more pictures than are really needed but can we create a gallery on these pages? Sometimes you just can't fit the images in and have the article still look good. A gallery lets you include more images and keep the article clean and orderly. Darth Maul comes to mind as having a lot of pictures but is't not that bad. Boba Fett also has a number of pictures, especially in the Equipment section. I put those there and I don't want them to go but I think aesthetically it might be better served to move stuff like that to a gallery section at the page. Perhaps not for those two cases specifically but you get the idea. Thoughts/ideas?--DannyBoy7783 00:50, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

  • I agree. There are a number of articles with a little too many pictures. If it can be done, maybe there can be a gallery tag on the top of an article next to the discussion tag, edit tag, etc. Then it could link to a gallery for that article specifically. DarthMaul431 03:17, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
    • I was thinking it would be on the main page of the article in its own section or something but that's a good idea too.--DannyBoy7783 14:35, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
      • The old "Main galleries" idea were shutdown because the images had to be in the main article for them to pass the fairuse policy. I like this idea of having the galleries below the sources and appearances area, but you have to get major support for something like this because it would go against the ruling class' Style policy and for them thats a big change --Razzy1319 21:10, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

UncyclopediaEdit

  • In the spirit of our anniversary, whoever hasn't already checked out this, should right now. Oooh...they got our number...especially surprised to see a direct quote from me! QuentinGeorge 09:14, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
    • PS...Great work Sikon... :) QuentinGeorge 09:33, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

        • the encyclopedia is now full of masterpieces such as: "Palpatine was born on Naboo, or maybe he wasn't. He was the greatest Dark Lord of the Sith, or maybe he wasn't." - that was one of my comments in the great "Palpatine Birth Date edit war". :) QuentinGeorge 10:16, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
        • Sometimes referred to as "Palpapedia", due to the fact that most of the effort made by the community is siphoned towards the Palpatine article. - ROFL!!!! StarNeptune 10:10, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Star Wars dreamsEdit

Uhh... not much of a big deal, but could anyone take a look at my Star Wars dreams page and fill it up? Its been around for three weeks, and hasn't been edited by anyone but me, so I want more dreams to be added. I think it would be an interesting subpage once its filled. Lt. 1993 13:57, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Good ArticlesEdit

Should we start identifying 'good articles' like at Wikipedia (here)?

Personally I think this would be a great way, in addition to the improvement drive, to identify articles that could/should be pushing for the featured article status. What do you think - KastMorben 14:09, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Sounds good to me. -- Ozzel 04:50, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes yes yes and yes. There seem to be alot of articles on Wookieepedia that are good enough to be recognized, but not good enough to be featured. --MarcK [talk] 02:20, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
    • So I guess we now need a template for the articles, a little like this one here. Could someone talented build one please KastMorben 09:42, 8 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Here's one to start working with - {{GA}} --Xwing328 00:44, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Looks good. Many of our other messages have a Star Wars theme, but I couldn't really think of one for this one. Perhaps the attempt to blow up the first Death Star - it was good, but not quite the one, just like our good articles. We'll also need to set up a page for good articles, and to start identifying them. KastMorben 11:05, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Food for thought on Lando Calrissian's possible origins Edit

  • It's probably better to discuss something like this at Theforce.net. The Community Portal is only for article discussion. Sorry. -- Riffsyphon1024 03:49, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Or -- Talk:Lando Calrissian. -- Riffsyphon1024 03:51, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
      • Okay. Sorry. I'm new here and am still figuring out the ropes. But thanks for those links; I'll check them out.

Trying to tie up a loose storyline from the novels, maybe Wookiepedia can help... Edit

In one of the early novels, Luke finds a beckon call in the cave where he was tested on Dagobah, the implication is that it belonged to the Dark Jedi that Yoda defeated there.

I don't remember which novel, but I'm fairly sure it was in the Heir to the Empire trilogy by Timothy Zahn.

I just finished his newest, Outbound Flight, where he finally completes what I had considered a "loose end", but then it dawned upon me that I don't remember what ever came of that beckon call.

Is this a "loose end" or has it been tied up?
