Welcome, Patricknoddy, 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—who we call Fanoneers—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 Fanoneer, 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! Want to work with others? Join a FanonProject! 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!
- Community Portal
- Writing Center
- Good articles
- Featured articles
- Quote of the Week

Before you edit
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, Patricknoddy! 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! – (Know the Power of the Dark Side) (Planets I've Captured) (Seek Greater Power) Uh, Darth Sidious telling Anakin about the "Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise". Courtesy of Jango Fett. By the way, did you create your "official webpage"? If so, how do you submit it to the net? (Know the Power of the Dark Side) (Planets I've Captured) (Seek Greater Power)
All you do is put poll in <> at the beginning, then you put the question and answers. Then put /poll in <>. For example:
Hello, Patricknoddy. If you like the Jedi, then come to This page and sign on as a member. How long have you been a member on star wars fanon? (Darth_Taikin(Talk to me) (My work)(Become a Jedi) 12:34, 18 March 2007 (UTC))
Okay, if you want to participate in our clan project, drop me a note. Telos and I are working on some kind of story with Darth Ruin and a Jedi master (We are still working on it! ) If you don't want to help, then either create a Userbox (See the clan page) or an infobox for yourself. (Darth_Taikin(Talk to me) (My work)(Become a Jedi) 12:40, 18 March 2007 (UTC))
Okay, I'll let Telos know you're involved. The first way you can help is by going to This Page and giving me your opinions on how it could be expanded/changed for the story (we may not use this character, but it's a possiblity). (Darth_Taikin(Talk to me) (My work)(Become a Jedi) 12:47, 18 March 2007 (UTC))
- Erm, no thanks. In case you haven't noticed, Darth Abeonis is my alter-ego (of sorts), and i don't mind being known by either name. Sith Council Sith Campaign 08:11, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Patricknoddy, I'd like to inform you that all madeby templates are to be deleted sometime soon, but there is an alternative. Simply type the following category at the bottom of your articles: Category:Articles by Patricknoddy. Thanks. Jesus Freak NK says NK's 'mazin' articles
I'm sorry to tell you this, but please read what I left above for you: All madeby templates are to be deleted sometime soon. When soon is, I don't know, maybe after the sysop elections. Madeby templates get in the way of the article and are huge, obnoxious nuisances. (And that's not me just spouting out my feelings on this subject, that's a site policy now. Read the Forum:Community "Editing War" for more details.) Meanwhile, a simple, but still authoritative Category:Articles by (Insert Username) is better, because it doesn't waste space or mess up the article. Once again, sorry. Jesus Freak NK says NK's 'mazin' articles
Thank you for understanding, Patricknoddy. I'm sorry if this inconveniences you in anyway, but it's a site policy now. If you need any help, just edit my talk page and I'll try to help or refer you to someone who can. Jesus Freak NK says NK's 'mazin' articles
Please, let's not devolve into a petty "editing war" over the fancan. There is a reason it is on the talk page instead of the article. Once again, please do not revert what I have done. Jesus Freak NK says NK's 'mazin' articles
Enough is enough, Patrick. I am going to contact one of the three admins here if you do not listen to what I have to say. Do not keep the fancan template on Coruscant. Jesus Freak NK says NK's 'mazin' articles
