Hi, I'm Brandon, and I'm a bureaucrat and administrator here on Star Wars Fanon.

  • Hi, so I was thinking of possibly joining SWRP but I wasn't sure if I was overstepping on privacy (I like to give people their space and not feel like I am following them everywhere to the point of suffocation) and if I did join I wouldn't want to have a character for a month only to see the timeline change. So I guess I am asking if it's aight and, I guess, if the timeline will be ending very soon (if it is then I might just wait--also I am aware you don't want to talk about the new timeline, so I am sorry about a question regarding it. XD).

    Anyway, thanks and adios amigo.

  • This user, claiming to be this user, has been reverting Typhuss and my edits all day. Regardless of whether he is the aforementioned user, his page content is in poor taste. I will leave it alone for you to decide.

  • This user has engaged in an edit war over my good faith category removal edits of this article. Normally I would balk at alerting you of such a problem as I know you are busy with wikia matters, but this user is more resistant than most when being told about policy pertaining to legal edits and may be a sign leading toward refusal to acknowledge policy. I don't want to jump to conclusions though. Perhaps a voice from an authority on this wiki will help them see the fact and help them avoid future edit wars and adhere further to site rules and guidelines.

    • What user are you talking about?.

    • You are talking about user Trainferry88, he has his own wiki called Jedi Archives Wiki. He stole my fanon, CC-2009, on his wiki he made CC-2079, named him Typhuss with a different number 2079 and changed 2009 to 2079. 2079's unit is the 52nd Sky Corps, which is 52nd Star Corps, he changed Star to Sky.

      He also stole CT-6/988, Skyes but changed the number to CC-1376 and used the same name Skyes on his page on his wiki.

  • How do you get the infoboxes on my wikis, to be like Star Wars Fanon Wiki?

    • I haven't done this for my wiki in forever so I don't exactly remember but I believe it is located in the common.css page. Located here. I am sure Brandon or TK or someone will correct me if I am wrong.

  • Are the 10th Wiki Awards not happening this year? That would seem a shame if that were the case.

  • While I agree with you and the overwhelming consensus of editors that changing ThePrinceOfTheNorth's "Commander Hero" to just "Hero" is in line with community standards, I think his point in this thread draws out an important issue. When he said he "couldn't find anything in the policy that said [he] couldn't have it the way it was", I looked through the Article guidelines myself, and sure enough, the requirement that ranks not be included in titles didn't survive the paring down of the Manual of Style.

    I point this out not because I think TPOTN has a valid argument—I agree he doesn't—but because it might be justification for reinstating the Manual of Style in full. I know you felt the MOS was too dauntingly large as it was, but now people can't be expected to know the ins and outs of article standards. We provided TPOTN with the Article guidelines link way back when, but it didn't help, because the "no ranks in article titles" provision really isn't there.

    I concede freely that, even before I was a law student, I went beyond tolerance to actual enjoyment of long, detailed policies, because I like detailed guidance and a clear and unambiguous enumeration of what is expected. But even putting my idiosyncracies aside, I think the community (and especially new writers, whom we refer to these policies) would be better served by the full MOS which they can read at once or consult by section(s) when the specific need arises, than the current, more generalized Article guidelines which run the risk of today's stillborn edit war.

    • I removed the rule on purpose - I'm fine if people name their pages "Commander Hero" if they want to. This isn't Wookieepedia so we don't need strict rules like that, as long as page names are grammatically accurate. TPOTN's ban was not about the page name, it was about his attitude. I had and have every intention of moving the page name back, or letting someone else do it if they are so inclined.

      The only article guidelines are the ones mentioned on the page. Anything else is no longer a rule that needs to be followed.

    • Aaaaaah, I understand now. Admittedly I'm a holdout for the old, labyrinthine, "follow these or suffer the consequences" MOS rules, but I get the distinct impression that's a nonstarter of a position. But thanks for the clarification.

    • Fair enough!

    • As I've said before, I come from the Wikipedia school of policy enforcement, wherein the policies and the penalties for violation exist for pretty much any situation. Thanks for the clarification, Bac; like Sakaros, I posted my query because of the Prince's legitimate grievance regarding title naming conventions.

  • Where exactly are the article naming conventions? They are nowhere to be found in the Article Guidelines or the Layout Guide. I could have sworn that convention dictated that article titles eschew ranks, epithets, nicknames, etc. Attempts to locate a Naming Conventions article result in redirection to the Article Guidelines.
