Welcome, Dionne Jinn, to Star Wars Fanon, the Star Wars wiki of fan invention!

As a community, we strive to maintain a fun and creative atmosphere for all users while also maintaining a sense of encyclopedic quality that we can show off and be proud of. The best way to help with that is for you, our newest valued user, to begin creatively expressing yourself with your article writing, and to get involved with the community! Need some help with your writing? We're here to offer that help in the Writing Center! The Senate Hall can also be used for asking about anything relating to Star Wars Fanon, including help in following our policies.

You're probably saying, "How can I get involved?" There are a number of ways that you can do that, which are all listed below, so we encourage you to check those out! Very importantly, there are also a number of policies that you will need to be cognizant of and agree to follow so you can have the best time possible, and to help make our great wiki even greater!

Star Wars Fanon is not about administrators, nor is it about the people who have been given accolades or awards. This wiki is about you, the community member and the valued writer. So long as a sense of encyclopedic standard is maintained, this wiki will continue to be the absolute best it can be, especially once you get involved in our community!

Joining the communityEdit

Hey Dionne Jinn! Sorry if this added message seems a bit overwhelming after the huge welcome message you just received, but what I wanted to say is important enough to re-emphasize it here. I wanted to make sure you were as aware as possible of the fantastic community we have here on the wiki. There is literally so much to do beyond just working on your own articles. I definitely don't want to sound like I'm suggesting you shouldn't work on your own articles, but there's a larger community out there too and we'd all love for you to get involved! If you have any questions about the community, which I strongly encourage you to participate in, don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks, and once again welcome to Star Wars Fanon! – -- Brandon Rhea (Talk) 00:30, March 8, 2010

I'll see about that, but not tonight (It's half past twelve in the night) I just wanted to add my user page to create a link here from my user page in Finnish Jedipedia. I'll take another look, but don't expect too much of me since I'm mostly working on SW canon wikis.--Dionne JinnSomething to say? 00:35, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Other languages Edit

You could create user subpages out of them, but not article subpages since this is the English Star Wars fanon wiki. Sorry. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 18:50, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

  • By the way, you should consider making Stardust and Shadow a featured work nominee. Featured works are like featured articles and good articles only for fan fiction. I haven't read your story so I can't actually speak to the quality of it, but it more than meets the minimum word requirement. Something to consider! - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 18:55, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Appearances template Edit

Hey Dionne, I just wanted to let you know that I added the {{App}} (appearances) template to Stardust and Shadow, per the Manual of Style's section on appearances. It can be a confusing template if you've never used it before, so if/when you add more of the sections to it, feel free to let me know if you need any help. =) - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 00:19, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Re: New wiki Edit

You're absolutely right, though some articles can be carried over. General articles like Anakin Skywalker could have an interwiki link. It's more useful for generic fan-canon articles. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 18:15, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Fanon timeline Edit

There's no main timeline here on SWF, so there's nothing saying that you have to use BBY/ABY. You can make up your own dating system. =) Also, as for the interwiki thing, I've yet to hear anything back. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 21:13, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Context Edit

Any type of fanon is allowed so long as it meets article guidelines, doesn't violate our acceptable content requirements, and/or any other relevant guidelines we have. =) - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 00:52, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Interwiki Edit

I haven't heard a thing, but I'll put in another request. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 21:20, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

Links Edit

Hi. I just wanted to let you know that the interwiki links between SWF and fi.SWF have been set up. =) - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 20:25, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • No problem. I've added it to the Main Page. If there's any other pages that happen to be protected that you need the interwiki link added to, let me know and I'd be happy to do it. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 20:29, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Special pages like the recent changes can't be edited. The MediaWiki software prevents it. - Brandon Rhea Alliance Starbird (talk) 23:04, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Dear Datapad... Edit

I've categorized your datapad entries per your request, under Category:Dear Datapad entries. Best of luck with your future endeavors! GoodwoodDebating Society12,014 Edits 23:46, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

  • About your datapad entries: other than some grammar and spelling peccadilloes, I think it's a great little experiment that could really get one involved with the characters you are creating. Making them subpages of the actual character pages is also a good idea—I say keep it up! And don't be afraid to go back and revise the entries if you feel they could be worded better or somesuch. Happy writing! GoodwoodDebating Society12,014 Edits 00:27, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
  • If English isn't your primary language, then more power to you; it's not a problem if you want to use British English in your personal fan fiction stories (after all, this is a great way to learn). In regards to the subpage thing, that was my mistake. It might be a good idea to leave them as subpages of the main Dear Datapad article, but also link them to the characters' respective articles under the heading of See Also (located after the Behind the scenes section). As for making one of them like The Diary of Anne Frank, that's certainly a good goal, and you shouldn't be afraid of it taking a long time. Hope this helps!

Special invitation for Dionne Jinn!Edit

Hey, you! Yes, you!


You're cordially invited to the 7th Annual Wiki Awards on the Star Wars Fanon Wiki! Come nominate, procrastinate, marinate, and pontificate over the best and brightest of the community's offerings with us! Sample the choicest works with your critical eye (monocle sold separately) and submit your own works for a chance to be enshrined in the annals of Star Wars Fanon history. You might write whatever you want to because it's fun, but getting shiny awards and bragging rights doesn't hurt either, right? We didn't think so.

Don't force yourself into exile, or look for alternative activities this winter. Whether your work is one of the myriad incarnations of Revan, a Sith Lord with a hard-to-pronounce name, or some random teenager's pet pittin, you'll find an entry where it belongs. (Editor's note: "Best Incarnation of Revan" and "Best Hard-To-Pronounce-Sith" did not make the categories list this year.) It's time to break out the ancient Sith armor and capes, the dress uniforms for every soldier, and something to catch the eye for every pretty lass. And did I mention our sponsors include Sarth's Darths, provider of the finest black capes in the galaxy? Join our star-crossed, er…star-studded collection of Star Wars Fanon administrators including Brandon Rhea, Goodwood, and Trak Nar as we celebrate the individualism and creativity on this wiki. And if you thought this announcement was cheesy, you ain't seen nothing yet. (Consider this a warning to those, like Fiolli, who are lactose intolerant.)

So fire up the hyperdrive, hope it doesn't catapult you a few millennia forwards or backwards in time, and head on over to the Seventh Wiki Awards. We'd love for you to nominate deserving works (including yours!) and help us choose the best entries for this year! We can't pick between all the entries without you! And if you see any other special snowflakes who need invited to the extravaganza, just slap this message on their talk page to spread some holiday cheer… or something.

So from two folks who've contributed far more at Wookieepedia than here, who habitually bring you either terrible puns or delicious pasta, please accept our sincerest invitation to the Seventh Wiki Awards. And remember, we're doing this all for the community, because that's what really matters on this wiki. Right? Yeah…
