Meet a User!

This weeks meet a user is centered around NKSCF, the Decreton Lord! NKSCF is pretty big here on SWFanon, and is a member of the Decreton Lords, the people in charge of choosing Featured articles. NK himself has achieved both User of the week and User of the month, at different time periods, and has written many fantastic articles, which include the Nathaniel Kenobi Solo series, which includes such fantastic articles as Abigaile Jade Kenobi, Darth Verraeter, and one of my favorites, Ada Karr. He's written, overall, five Featured articles and five good articles and, as well as having many hopefuls, is still writing! But the thing about NK, is that he's just so helpful! I have addressed queries to him many a time, and he's all ways been helpful enough to answer them pretty quickly. And, NK's not afraid to take positive criticism. MPK, an excellent user who I'm sure will be the subject of meet a user in times to come, wrote a review of Nathaniel Kenobi Solo on his user page. Now we all know MPK to be daunting as a review writer, and he slammed Nathaniel Kenobi Solo, fantastic article though it is, here! However, NK didn't go over the top and demand that he remove it, he just thanked him for his positive criticism, which I think is pretty fantastic! Another claim to fame, he has the most article here on SWFanon, and is second only to Squishy Vic in overall edits! So, overall, NK is just a nice guy who writes excellent articles. Well done NKSCF!

No name change

Hhello, Fanonites!

In the poll in the most recent CUSWFN, it was decided by you, the community, our loyal readers, that the name CUSWFN would remain, and it would not be changed to OSWFN. Although it is official, many users feel that the name CUSWFN has a heritage, and is well known, whereas OSWFN isn't as well known as CUSWFN. So, the name will stay as CUSWFN! Also, in this edition of CUSWFN, we have our first cartoon strip, on the CUSWFN news page, more on that inside. Personally, I think that it's good that the name remains the same, as CUSWFN is well known as a name, and has a ring to it, whereas I don't think OSWFN has that! Unfortunately, due to my being on holiday, there will not be a CUSWFN next week, which is also why this one has been distributed early. You can expect the next CUSWFN to arrive on Sunday the 13th of April, so sorry about that! But we still need your articles, so please, please, please keep writing these articles, and putting them onto this page for me. Well, that's all for now, more inside!

Meet a User!

This weeks Meet a User is centered around MPK, the High Priest! He is, for this month, currently running for the User of the Month, and good luck to him! He faces Xepeyon, another fantastic user, and it's pretty close! Anyway, onto MPK; MPK is one of the High Priests here on SWFanon, he was made an HP around December 2007, and a daunting prospect for anyone submitting a first Good article nomination! He would be able to tear any article that he believes not to be up to the standard of a Good article to shreds, and his excellent ability to review has also seen many great articles gain praise! On his userpage, he also reviews many articles and things to do with the Star Wars universe, with an excellent reviewing ability! So far, to my knowledge, he hasn't won anything yet, which is a shame, as he deserves to! However that could all change with this months User of the Month coompetitin! He first joined around October 2006, and his first article was the Battle of Korriban (Disciples of Ragnos Crisis), a pretty good article, which was originally meant to be a standalone project, but the infathomable mind of MPK soon changed that idea! His first Good article was Jaden Korr (Dark Order War), which then went on to become a Featured article, however he's still working on the Dark Order War, for which he has high hopes!

Kudeb's cartoons

Hhello, Fanonites!

OotSDooku
An example of Kudeb's work
With the new CUSWFN cartoon strip being put in for the first time last week, it was generally acclaimed quite well, however it wasn't made by anyone on Star Wars Fanon, which is a shame. However, Gyasz Kudeb has submitted an example of his work, and believes that he, biweekly, may beable to produce a cartoon for CUSWFN! However, there is still the matter of the other week, so if anyone at all wishes to submit an example of their work or a cartoon strip, please do! An actual cartoon strip made by someone here on Star Wars Fanon would be excellent. Anyone good with programs such as Microsoft Paint, or paint shop pro should give it a try; there is no way to go wrong! So please, do give it a shot. An example of Kudeb's work has been shown at the side here.

Meet a User!

This weeks Meet a User is made around Solus, the Decreton Lord. Solus first came here, to Star Wars Fanon, on the 14th January 2007 and has since risen to high places, becoming a Decreton Lord! So far, Solus has written eight Featured articles (NKSCF watch out!) and it was on the second of November, in 2007, that Solus was rewarded for his work, and made a Decreton Lord. Solus also holds the record of writing the first species articles on Star Wars Fanon, and they set the bar for all species articles that followed up, such as Cilwelli. Solus' first Featured articles was the Shapeshifters, although that wasn't his first GA! In the days when he wrote Shapeshifters, an article didn't need to be a GA first, so his first GA was Shikkri. His articles are all very imaginative, and Solus tells me that his inspiration comes from looking at a bunch of images. Wow! Just looking at a bunch of images? That's pretty good! I must say, my favourite one of his articles is his article Tulak Hord, an FA. It's interesting and written in an engaging prose. What I like about Solus' work is his tasteful use of images, and skills with programs such as Paint shop pro, on which he makes his own images, to a great degree, I may add. What I don't like is that, sometimes, his work resembles that of the actual Star Wars Saga; such as, in the article Tulak Hord, when Tulak battles Chirene in the acid station, it resembles Anakin against a mixture of Obi-Wan and Padme in Episode III. In the future, what I would like to see is Solus branching further away. However, as the number of FA's suggest, there is very little to complain about in Solus' excellent work.

Cruentusian Project

Hhello, Fanonites!

Cruentus logo
The Logo of the project

Today, CUSWFN reveals its new project, the Cruentusian Project! The Cruentusian Project is a project established to create a large new part of Star Wars History, albeit Fanon. The Cruentusian Project is centered around the Cruentusian War, a war that's set before the Great Sith War, so, for those of you who dislike contradicting canon, you won't have to!

While the project aim is to have a sort of wiki-wide collaboration, you may choose to create an article by yourself, or you may collaborate on articles. You may also choose to allow others to create red links for you. If this idea is met with widespread agreement, then a portal will be created for the project. If you wish to become a part of the project, all you have to do is place your name in the appropriate section in the users comments page and, if (and when) the portal is made, I will place your name on the list of participants. We hope to have you with us in this project!

Project Aims:

1: Our goal is to create a minimum of three Featured articles, showing the large amount of effort we would like to see put into the project.

2: Create an extensive new and intriguing era.

3: Build a good relationship between users.

4: Most importantly, enjoy ourselves!

Please do join this project, for it will improve the wiki as a whole, and should be a lot of fun!

Era:

It's 24,299 bby; the Rakatan Infinite Empire was crippled by the disease that swept through their species, and the Empire is in dissarray. The slaves and species that were under the command of the cruel Rakatans have risen up, and the Rakatans are in full retreat back to Lehon, leaving behind only a few factions to try and guard their rear and, if possible, take back the Infinite Empire. The slaves have formed themselves into their previous species, and returned to their home planets, but disorder and havoc wreak their way through the galaxy. With no order to rule, crime and disorder is abundant. Yet from the ruins of the Infinite Empire and from the havoc that is the known galaxy rise warlords, battling for command of the Infinite Empire's former Empire. These warlords fight across the galaxy, starting what is known as the Cruentusian War...

(Please note, whoever makes the article Cruentusian War, please make it free edit so that the members of this project may make changes)

As of yet, we don't have an era icon so, if you wish to put forward an image that you think would be good, please put it on the discussion page of this page here. The candidates will then be voted upon by the community, and then the final image will be presented to the administration, and requested to be made into an era icon.

Meet a User!
The subject of this weeks Meet a User is the High Priest Dexington! Many have seen Dexington around, normally on the Good articles nomination page, however he also has written many fantastic articles himself! The author of six Featured articles, Norris Raddek, Vaskar, Filose Naj, Jar'Kata, Chapek IX and Vogga. Whilst all of these are both good and featured articles, he also has another article which knocks his GA count up to seven, however this one isn't an FA. Which article? Alexei Sudovencavic, an article I recently saw on the nomination page for good articles. Dexington rose up to the rank of High Priest just two or three months after joining, and he was re-elected in the elections a few months ago. His first of those FA's was Norris Raddek which, incidently, was also his first GA. For six years Dexington has been role-playing on various Star Wars Sites, however he's been at The Star Wars RP for quite a while, and he gets a lot of his inspiration from Role Playing. Unfortunately, however, he's retired from role-playing, so we won't be seeing, unfortunately he says, any new articles for a while!

Meet a User!
The subject of this week's "Meet a User" is the Decreton Lord, Jasca Ducato! Jasca Ducato was one of the first users who came here to the wiki, and is therefore one of the longest serving users here, having joined in June 2006. Since he's been here for a long time, he has gained a lot of experience, and he rode out the 'vandal wars' as well. He is better known by the name Darth Abeonis, his flagship article and first edit. He has achieved ten Featured articles and three Good articles, as many of his articles were written before an article needed to be a GA to be an FA. He and NKSCF were the two original Decreton Lords, the name being based upon another of his articles. In June 2007, Jasca's illustrious career peaked with being made a member of the Cabal, who were then simply administrators. Jasca Ducato also has the honor of having written the most linked to article on this wiki, the well known Sith Order of Decreto! His first FA was his flagship article, and his first GA, the Collective automated binary administration livewire. By other users, Jasca has been praised for his extensive work in the area of Sith fanon, with the Decreton Lords (the article) and the Sith Order of Decreto, and the unfinished Zao tenj War article. Positive criticism has come in the form of the idea that the article that both he and NKSCF refer to, the Scourges of Those Bad Guy People, is a bit 'cheesy', as said by some users, however Jasca has made large edits and great contributions to the wiki over the years.

SloganEdit

Written by Darth tom

Hello, Fanonites! For some time, every since it's inception, the CUSWFN has been without an official slogan. However, we're now planning to change that! An informal 'Slogan competition' has been created, and anyone may submit a relevant slogan suggestion on this page! So far, we've had Darth tader suggesting this the slogan of "CUSWFN: the only place for your SWFanon news!" However, it's far from being decided! Anyone who wishes to may submit one, and the community as a whole will vote upon them later!

In other news, last week's edition featured the first cartoon from Gyasz Kudeb, and we hope to have more cartoons from him in the future! While we do not have one from him this week, he has said he has a very busy schedule and will only be able to update biweekly or so. However, we are still looking forward to it! Also, special thanks go out to Brandon Rhea who gave us so much information for the colossal Meet a User we have on him today!

Meet a User!

Written by Darth tom and Brandon Rhea

The subject of this week’s Meet a User is Brandon Rhea, the user who currently serves as a High Priest, Decreton Lord and Administrator. The author and editor of many articles, Rhea is well known throughout the Wiki. Along with Squishy Vic, he is essentially the only full time Administrator currently serving on the Wiki, though there are many other users serving as Administrators that put in as much time as they can to help serve the members of Star Wars Fanon.

Ever present around the Wiki, Rhea first joined on August 24, 2006 and created his first article Ussej Padric Bac, though he only made three edits before he left the wiki for a time and essentially forgot about it. When he remembered about it, he returned on December 9, 2006 and has been active ever since, writing over two hundred articles as well as seventeen Good Articles, his first being Order of the Whills, and eighteen Featured Articles, his first been Bendu Order. With these two numbers, Rhea has written more Good Articles and Featured Articles than anyone else on Star Wars Fanon.

In May 2007, Rhea suggested to Squishy Vic that a group be put together to monitor Good Articles, much like the then-newly created Decreton Lords did for Featured Articles. There was a great deal of discussion afterwards, and eventually a board of members called the High Priests was created. Not only did Rhea help create the board, but the name High Priest came from the title of the leader of the Bendu Order in his fanon continuity, much like the name Decreton Lords came from a title in Jasca Ducato’s fanon stories. He was elected to the rank of Decreton Lord on July 15, 2007 and thus relinquished his duties as a High Priest. On September 1, 2007, Rhea was elected to the position of Administrator. Had Gnosis is knowledge not dropped out of the election, it is likely that Rhea would not be an Administrator. In December 2007, Rhea was re-elected to the position of High Priest when the board was going through a period of inactivity, making him the only user to be currently serving as both a Decreton Lord and a High Priest.

When writing his articles, Rhea has a variety of sources for inspiration. One of these sources is religion, and although he is a Christian he also has used elements of Judaism and Islam in his work. An example of the religious diversity is Ussej Padric Bac, whose name is a respelling of Jesus, and the element of his fanon that is Yahweh, the Jewish name for the Judeo-Christian God. There is also a great deal of other Biblical elements in his work, such as the story of The Skywalker which is based primarily on Moses and the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Old Testament. Rhea also takes a great deal of inspiration from TheStarWarsRP.Com, as many of his stories, particularly those surrounding Ussej Padric Bac and the Bac family, originated at the website. Rhea has been actively role-playing there since July 2005.

In terms of the opinions other users hold of Rhea, he is very much respected throughout the Wiki, though it is not just because of his status as an Administrator. Some users did not believe that Rhea was qualified to be an Administrator due to his initial opinions about the job, which accounted for why he nearly lost the election, but he was able to prove them wrong in the way that he has dealt with vandals and other rule breakers on the Wiki. One of these people was Squishy Vic. According to Vic, "At first, I didn't approve of him becoming an administrator, because I thought he would be too much of an inclusionist and too lenient around the Wiki with things." Eventually, however, Vic changed his opinions and acknowledged that Rhea is a "good Administrator overall" when dealing with situations on the Wiki.

As well as creating numerous articles on the Wiki, Rhea has worked extensively in the realm of fan fiction. He is the creator of Brandon Rhea's Alternative Star Wars Saga, a re-imagining of George Lucas's Star Wars, which has since merged with the Squishy Vic Series to become the overall Alternative Star Wars Saga, complete with an extensive expanded universe, rewrites of all of the films and a timeline spanning over one hundred thousand years starting in the time of The Skywalker and the formation of the Order of the Jedi Bendu of the Ophuchi. Two of the major works that Rhea is currently working on are Star Wars: Episode I - The Chosen One, which is being edited by Squishy Vic, and the recently begun Chronicles of the Great War series, which is a re-interpretation of the events of the first timeline on TheStarWarsRP.Com, though the majority of the story remains faithful to the role-plays.

Users have spoken about how Rhea's writing skills have improved over time. According to some, his novels used to be fairly dry until he received some criticism and assistance, particularly in the editing process. Rhea has acknowledged his evolution as a writer on several instances and has pointed to the drastic difference between the old drafts of some of his work and the current incarnation. He has said on more than one occassion that he owes a great deal of his improvement to Squishy Vic for editing, but particularly Atarumaster88. Ataru, an Administrator and Inquisitor on Wookieepedia as well as the author of the award-winning fan novel Force Exile I: Fugitive, was one of the few to strongly criticize elements of one of Rhea's drafts of Shadows of the Jedi: The Legend of Ussej Padric Bac, particularly with dialogue and relevant detail. Rhea dismissed this at first, but in the end he agreed with Ataru and was able to greatly improve his level of detail and his writing of dialogue. While he and Ataru have some differing opinions on styles of writing.

Rhea is a very active member on TheStarWarsRP.Com, one of the partner sites of Star Wars Fanon. He began as a Moderator on a board dedicated to uncovering the truth about SuperShadow. He then became a Global Moderator, and only a few weeks later he became an Administrator. He is currently serving as the Head Administrator of the boards, as well as the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order faction in the role-play. On TheForce.Net, Rhea is a two-time VIP for writing a guide to web hosts for the Fan Sites board and for hosting the Classic Trilogy Rewrite Contest in the Classic Trilogy board.

In his life outside of Star Wars, Rhea is currently a college freshman. He is also an Assistant Scoutmaster in Boy Scouts of America Troop 62 where he served as Senior Patrol Leader and earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award a scout can earn. He is also a very active member of the Order of the Arrow's Sakuwit Lodge, where he served as Lodge Chief from 2006-2007. He is currently the Lodge Leadership Development Chairman, which makes him the leader of the committee designed with the idea of the leaders of tomorrow being trained by those of today. He is currently a Brotherhood Honor member, though he has been nominated for the high Vigil Honor, one of the highest honors any Arrowman or scout can be bestowed with. In Sakuqit Lodge, he was given the honor of being the Arrowman of the Year for 2007 and was given the Order of the Arrow Founder's Award. He is also the Vice-Chief of Section NE-2B, the Order of the Arrow organization overseeing the seven lodges in eastern Pennsylvania, nortern and central New Jersey, Long Island and all of Europe west of Russia.

Meet a User!
This week's subject of Meet a User is CurrentBigThing (CBT), one of the current yet only semi-active Administrators on Star Wars Fanon! CBT has had a mostly successful past while on the Wiki, though he has had somewhat of a darker side as well. Famous for his rants and non-touchy feely ideals, CBT has helped to greatly improve the content and reputation of the Wiki through his ideals. A passionate writer and known deletionist, CBT has even been likened to Jacen Solo; willing to go to extraordinary lengths for what he believes in. He first joined Star Wars fanon around the February of 2007; around a year before me! CBT once said that one of the reasons he joined was because of how much he enjoyed the article Ussej Padric Bac II, written by fellow Administrator Brandon Rhea.

CBT has three Formerly Featured Articles and two Good Articles, and many users have lamented the fact that his time away meant that his articles fell into disrepair and were made Formerly Featured Articles because of the raised standards. His first article to achieve any sort of status was Darth Faust, and it was around June 2007 when he was invited to be a Decreton Lord. After not being able to keep up with his duties, he left the Decreton Lords, but he became an administrator on June 27, 2007. He became an inactive Administrator later, in a self imposed exile, after an unfortunate incident with another user. However, he remains an Administrator to this day.

CBT, like other users, was a big part of the Wiki's cleaning up, notably during the purge of uncategorized articles in Summer 2007. He gets inspiration from the people around him, as well as listening to music while writing. He's planning to return and become more active here, although technical restraints have confined him to quite a small position of support. He's a very good and helpful user, and has always deigned to reply to all the few messages I've left him.

Darthipedia SupplementEdit

Written by Darth tom

Over the IRC, the Completely Unofficial Star Wars Fanon Newsletter was able to convince Gonk, the founder of Darthipedia, the Star Wars Humor Wiki, to write a Darthipedia section for the news. This will continue on through the weeks and will be devoted to the going ons of Darthipedia. We are happy to hear that Gonk, the best man for the job, will be occassionally writing this section which will appear in CUSWFN News. Thanks, Gonk!

In addition to this, we also have a Meet a User with Michaeldsuarez, as well as looking at the fantastic Force Exile series, written by the literary expert Atarumaster88! This weeks Star Wars News will be packed with news, as the wiki's heaving with the stuff! We hope you enjoy this edition, and please be aware that there might not be an edition in two weeks time (not next edition, but the one after) week, due to Darth tom's personal circumstances, though Brandon Rhea has volunteered to handle it. If there is no edition, then CUSWFN will resume again after that week.

Meet a User!

Written by Darth tom

This week's subject of Meet a User is Michaeldsuarez! Unfortunately, Michael did not reply to the questionnaire that was sent to him, so this will be briefer than previous Meet a Users. The first thing that will shock you about him is that his article category contains only 5 fanonical works! You may be asking, swhy is he Meet a User? Well, if we are the cogs and machinery of Star Wars Fanon, Michael is the oil and brush, polishing and cleaning up the wiki in general. Best known for clearing up double redirects, adding categories and fixing other mess ups, he's been a valuable help to this wiki, despite not being a fanon writer by trade! He has written the Force Maverck saga, a little known yet well written saga of which his works relate. Having been here since May 18, 2007, he's made a fair few edits. 60.27 % of his edits have been completely separate from the Main Namespace, and most of the ones in the main namespace have been grammar fixes, or changes to double redirects! He really is the 'Janitor' of the wiki, and we hope his sabbatical has seen him come back and ready to help us once more!

RetirementEdit

Written by Darth tom

Retirement is not a word I release to you through happiness, and I'm not finding it easy to retire, but retiring I am. In three editions time, I will be leaving CUSWFN. Why am I doing this? To those few who knew what was happening before hand, that was the question they all asked. Well, there are many reasons. If I do become a High Priest, I will have reviewing duties, and I want to be able to think: 'Ah yes. Three hours spare so I can settle down and do a nice, long, in depth review.' And I would be reviewing those articles better because of it. In addition to this, CUSWFN was the making of me on this wiki, yet it also is a problem for me. I have only two good articles, and I feel that I can do better, and I'd like some time to better concentrate on my articles. In addition, I feel I can do the community better in different ways, and I want people to remember me in a way that says: 'Oh. He's left. That's a shame.'

I feel that if I carry on for much longer, people will get bored, and I don't want that. Will CUSWFN die with my retirement? I hope not. I have had reason to believe CUSWFN will be carried on, although by who I do not yet know. It was one of my favorite things about the Wiki, and I feel loathe to let it go, yet I must. I'd just like to thank everyone who's helped me: Brandon Rhea especially, for all the editorial work he's put in, users like MPK who wrote articles, people like Atarumaster88 who allowed us to write articles about their fanon, and users like C3PO the Dragon Slayer and Drewton who were the only users to thank me for giving out editions. There will be people I've forgotten in this list, and I'm sorry, but I thank you anyway.

The successor will be decided in the forum, and you'll also notice that there's no activities page this week. I apologize, but time constraints were too much. Hope you enjoy it anyway!

Written by Darth tom

Unit 8311 is well known by many recipients of CUSWFN as, despite having no official status, and he has been a great contributor to Project Cruentus. After the fanon restrictions on Wookieepedia, Unit 8311, like many users, came to put his userpage fanon here. He enjoyed it so much, he stayed! He currently has four Featured articles, those being his namesake article, Unit 8311, Steel Legion, Club StarDust and Battle of Nar Shaddaa (GDE/Legion). His two sole Good articles are Ferd Swqaru and Star Wars: Legion Commando.

Unit’s first Featured Article was Steel Legion, and his first Good Article was his namesake. He's done a lot for Project Cruentus, and he's made a lot of contributions to the Wiki. Unit generates and expands random ideas, yet he also gets inspiration from existing Star Wars stories, and he doesn't like writing about Jedi and Sith, preferring the underworld of Star Wars. In terms of other science fiction, he's a watcher of Doctor Who, and he (real random one here) enjoys eating Asian food, according to himself. He's often been criticized for being unable to take criticism, however I feel he's improving here.

Record breaker!Edit

Written by Darth tom

Today, CUSWFN makes history. With the release of this edition, CUSWFN becomes Wikia’s oldest newsletter, both in time and releases, having run, and released more editions, than Halopedia’s Oracle Newsletter, with a total of seventeen editions, beating Halopedia’s 16! Today, in CUSWFN News, we’ll be taking a look at the changes of CUSWFN, the Meet a Users, the glory times, the fail times, and the good, the bad, and the ugly, to use a popular phrase.

In addition to this, we have a Media article on Avian Hunt, the game conceived and created by C3PO the Dragon Slayer, and a test version has been released, which I’m reviewing this edition, with screenshots from in game and all! The news from Star Wars Fanon features this weeks updates, as well as CUSFWN news featuring the last updates you’ll receive from me about Project Cruentus, as well as my last cartoon and crossword, which returns, as my MS Paint has decided to work once more!

As well as this, it’s poignant that, in my last edition, who should be the Meet a User but Squishy Vic, one of the most hard working but least praised users on Star Wars Fanon, and one who has helped me, as well as many others, in the past, and has never been the Meet a User before.

So, enjoy this addition!

Meet a User!

Written by Darth tom

The subject for this weeks Meet a User is Squishy Vic, the Supreme chancellor and Decreton Lord! Vic first lurked in in mid 2006, reading articles like NKSCF and Jasca Ducato, the Star Wars Fanon ‘classics’, yet he didn’t officially join until October 6th of that very year, and, since then, has written 20 articles worthy of status, ten of them being Good articles and ten Featured articles, with only three of each being only GA’s and only FA’s, the other 14 being both. Vic also holds the status of being one of the original Decreton Lords, along with Jedi Master 76 and Jasca Ducato, the others being the only other original DL’s to remain as current ones, and it didn’t end there. Vic was made an administrator, after a standard election, on April 30 2007, over a year ago, after the election began on March 31.

In terms of his work, Vic feels that Narod Antrell and his spin off articles have been his most valuable contributions to the wiki, but he’s also been involved in many cleanup articles, being an administrator like he is. Narod Antrell was also his first FA, and he also holds the record of having the first ever Good article on this site, Si'va Morrer. In terms of inspiration, Vic gets it from many sources, such as Star Wars, where we all do, such as cartoons, video games and comics. He’s opposed to the New Jedi Order series, and never will, according to himself, read it, calling it ‘Yuuzhan Vong crap’, or the Palpatine’s clones works, and he also gains inspiration from other fictional sources. These include Halo, The Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, Starship Troopers and many other series of fictional nature. Out of fictional inspiration, Vic gains inspiration from people such as CurrentBigThing and Jedi Master 76, creating characters based on them, as well as gaining inspiration from his family, such as the character Hunab, named after his dog.

In terms of edits, 45.32% of his edits have been in the main namespace, a true testimony to how hard he works. How so? Well, he’s an administrator, and often greets or messages new, or current, users regarding policies, but still works hard enough to write such articles. So, in terms of personality. At first, when I joined this wiki, I believed Vic to be quite officious, yet my view has been changed so much, from actually speaking to him, over talk pages and the IRC, and he’s a nice guy. I admire a lot of his work, and his reputation speaks for itself.

Also! If you wish to block these appalling ads wikia's using, just go to the central wiki and paste this code (thanks to Drewton for this) into User:yourusername/global.css

Special CASWFN EditionEdit

The Completely ALTERNATIVE Star Wars Fanon Newsletter

Volume 1, Edition 1 - April, 2009


Greetings, mortals comrade citizens of the Star Wars Fanon community. We have here for you a very special message.

Friends, fanonites, countrymen, lend me your ears…er, eyes…whatever…just run the tapeEdit

Welcome to another issue of CUSWFN CASWFN, delivered fresh to your user talk page/subpage for April, 2009! Inside this issue, we have a interview with Solus, as well as a picture of the day, fanon updates, Star Wars merchandise page, Star Wars Fanon news, FA/GA updates, and user comments. In other words, everything that this publication should normally have, but usually doesn't, or doesn't have to the satisfaction of the majority (or at least a vocal minority) of the readers. However, first we have a special address from the editor for the main newsletter page:

By now, you've probably realized that this issue is not part of the CUSWFN, nor is it written by the usual culprits. No, instead we got tired of waiting around for the *actual* CUSWFN and decided to make our own, special one-issue-only release. We're not sure what happened to the actual heads. Word has it one of them is busy with the Communist party and the other is playing with children's toys. Please direct all complaints to them and not us. Especially since we're not revealing our names. In fact, we just conned Ataru into uploading this for us because he's a convenient fall guy.

As such, this issue is labeled the CASWFN, the Completely Alternative Star Wars Fanon Newsletter, due to the fact that it is not part of the standard newsletter. And, since it's not part of that mess, we felt that we could take a few more creative liberties with the content. As such, there is no compunction for us to be as serious in this issue, so you might find the content a bit more satirical. The date of this release also has something to do with that. Our goal is both provide a level of humor and content missing from CUSWFN issues, and frankly, to have fun with this publication. We hope you'll enjoy this special release of CASWFN, and remember, if you've been wishing you got more issues of the usual newsletter, talk to the normal heads.

What's new in CUSWFNEdit

Written by Drewton

Welcome to the twenty-first edition of the Completely Unofficial Star Wars Fanon Newsletter! In this edition, CUSWFN receives another design change. This time, the width has been adjusted. Images are now used in the headers, and are different for each section. In addition to the design change, CUSWFN News had been removed, along with the Modal Nodes Club. However, good news must come with bad: co-editor Drewton has been forced to resign, leaving Unit 8311 as the sole editor. Check up soon to see if a new editor will be chosen. Otherwise, feel free to judge for yourself if this has been for the better or worse.

The winners of the Star Wars Fanon Awards are shown in SWF News, along with various other Wiki events in recent times, including unfortunate resignations, Copyright Crusades, and, of course, the upcoming Great Fanon Purge, which has poorly written articles across the site trembling in their grammatically questionable shoes. In Fanon Updates, new details are revealed for all of the newsletter's sponsored works, as well as Project Cruentus. Finally, the new character Cad Bane is analysed in the Star Wars Media section, and MPK has written an essay regarding a supposed myth from the game The Force Unleashed.

We have also asked some community members to pick a Picture of the Week. You will find the winner to that here. If you don't care about the Academy Awards anymore since The Dark Knight was snubbed, you may be interested in the Fourth Star Wars Fanon Wiki Awards, the results of which are also shown here. Hopefully, this will be the best edition of CUSWFN yet!

We would also like to point out that if you get put off by some of the content in this issue, we'd like to direct you to the Chris Rock School of Facetiousness Recognition.


Edition XXI

CUSWFN – Edition 23 Edit


                 
Cuswfn header main
CUSWFN logo 02

Welcome to the twenty-third edition of the Star Wars Fanon wiki’s very own Completely Unofficial Star Wars Fanon Newsletter! For this twenty-third edition, we welcome a new co-editor, Brandon Rhea, to the team! He will be working alongside long-time editor Unit 8311 to bring you the best quality news about the wiki and fan fiction, as well as editorials and opinions essays about Star Wars works, that this wiki has to offer. A little bit of trivia information is that Rhea, along with fellow Star Wars Fanon user Victor Dorantes, has served as the co-editor of the newsletter once before, but he and Dorantes resigned before releasing an issue due to other commitments that required their attention. We are happy that he has returned to us once again!

In this edition, you will be able to learn new exclusive information about fan works such as the Squishy Vic Series and Avian Hunt, as well as read news about other works sponsored by this newsletter. We also have an opinion essay written by our own Unit 8311, and the newly-renamed Picture of the Edition segment. We have also brought you up-to-date information about new policy proposals and other happenings around the wiki, such as the ongoing mass deletion process that is geared towards improving the quality of the wiki.

Speaking of quality, many users have remarked that the last few editions of this newsletter have not met the standards of quality that our readers have come to expect from us. It is our sincerest hope that this edition of the newsletter will be the first of many that will rectify that, as we have spent weeks working on articles, editorials, and other tidbits that we hope you will enjoy. Because we are striving to improve our quality, we very much encourage you to leave your comments and feedback in the User Comments section. Anything you have to say will be appreciated.

As always, thank you for reading the Completely Unofficial Star Wars Fanon Newsletter. We value your commitment to us, and we hope that you will continue to value our commitment to you!


Edition XXIII

CUSWFN – Edition 24 Edit

Thank you for your continued commitment to the Completely Unofficial Star Wars Fanon Newsletter! Without you, this edition, albeit somewhat late due to real life matters taking priority for both Unit 8311 and Brandon Rhea, would not have been possible. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we do!
