Welcome, Jim Logan, 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 Jim Logan! 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! – -- Solus (Talk) 23:46, July 18, 2011

Re: Question Edit

Hi Jim. In order to request affiliation, you'd have to set up a topic in the consensus track where this community could vote on it, since I'm not in charge of the wiki. Because your wiki is very small and doesn't have very much activity on it, though, I'm pretty certain that the community wouldn't support affiliation with Star Wars Fanon at this time. Keep building the wiki, though, and it could happen at some point! That said, I did say I'm not in charge of the community, so if you would like to set up a consensus track topic anyway, you're more than welcome to. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 23:11, September 3, 2011 (UTC)

Images Edit

The following images require a source and license as per our Image Policy:

Please source and license these images as soon as possible, else they will be removed. Any and all future uploads to this wiki also need to be sourced and licensed in accordance to the aforementioned image policy, and that includes user-made images. If you need any help, feel free to ask. Thanks. Trak Nar Ramble on 04:33, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

  • Then, using the following template (highlight and copy/paste), they would be sourced as such:

{{Information
|attention=
|description= Jim Logan
|source=''{{SW|Clone Wars Adventures (video game)|Clone Wars Adventures}}''
|author=User's own screenshots
|licensing={{screenshot}}
|filespecs=
|cat subject=[[Category:Images of Humans]][[Category:Images of males]]
}}

Even if they are one's own screenshots of one's own custom character, unless that character was made in a program such as 3D Studio Max or DazStudio, then the image should still be sourced to the game it came from. This includes images that the uploader had drawn or otherwise created themselves. In such cases, the image would be sourced as "user-made" and licensed with {{CC-BY-SA}}, but since these are game screenshots, then they need to be sourced to the game. Hope that helps clear up any confusion. :) Trak Nar Ramble on 04:47, November 20, 2011 (UTC)
    • Just edit the image and copy/paste the template in. :) Trak Nar Ramble on 05:01, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Excuse meEdit

Request denied. If you want to upload your "better image," then simply click the "Upload a new version of this file" link at the bottom of the file page, then maybe one of the admins will come around and delete the old version as a housekeeping measure. As it stands, you uploaded an unsourced, unlicensed image in violation of the image policy, and thus it was deleted. This is your second warning; further offenses will result in increasingly harsh administrative action. GoodwoodDebating Society12,018 Edits 20:59, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Recent edit Edit

Template:Information is meant to be placed on the actual file page, such as with File:Ussej Padric Bac.JPG. It is not meant to be placed in a character (or other) page. Thanks Savage1138 21:19, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

  • To do so, you can go to the image file page and then click "Edit" next to the big file name at the top. Once there, you can add the template with all of the information. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 21:40, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

ASWS articles Edit

Hi. Please don't add your content to articles marked with "(ASWS)" in their titles. Those articles belong to the Alternative Star Wars Saga and are not free-edit articles. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 00:06, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Image request Edit

I am still struggling through a backlog and have been primarily concentrating on my Topps portfolio (prospect of a job takes precedence), so I cannot guarantee when I can get around to this image. However, since it is a head shot, then I'll see how soon I can get to it, but again, I cannot make any promises. Darth Real Life has been stepping in quite often as of late. :/ Trak Nar Ramble on 20:30, December 29, 2011 (UTC)

Special invitation for Jim Logan!Edit

Hey, you! Yes, you!

YodaClaus-SWAJ8

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…

The Last AttemptEdit

I noticed that you placed some narration onto your story page, The Last Attempt. In keeping with our Manual of Style and Layout Guide, this text has been moved to a sub-page. To help you with building an article for a story, it is recommended that you look at this page. Thanks, and happy storytelling! GoodwoodDebating Society12,018 Edits 03:06, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

  • The article you made, Star Wars: Old Republic Stories, has been deleted because you put narrative text into the article itself. This is in opposition to the policies I explained in the above message left to you at the beginning of the year. You have thus been officially warned; if you do not abide by this policy, any future articles will be summarily deleted and you will receive a vacation per our blocking policy. If you have any questions, please contact an administrator. GoodwoodDebating Society12,018 Edits 05:28, April 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hello There!Edit

Hello! Do you remember me from chat? Go look at my Fan Fiction and my forum. Hope we can be friends! ^_^ -- Do, or Do Not. There is no Try. Jedi symbol JFJ 01:32, May 19, 2012 (UTC) (Like it?)

Re:IRC Edit

You can use this gateway to access IRC as a web page. If you have an IRC client, you can join the Freenode network's #swfanon channel.  TK-999 (Talk) 11:53, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
