Hey Im the guy working on the 416th star corps. I havent been working on my page for a while because ive been busy with... socializing. P.S. how's sebolto if you know? does he have a personal PM account like on twitter or discord or something?
Sebolto's well, to the best of my knowledge, but on sabbatical from his moderating duties; everyone needs a break from time to time, and since I'm the more active of the site's two Bureaucrats, I'm picking up the slack while he's gone.
Hi, my editor didnt allow me to add categories, but somebody else showed me another way to do it. I've added introductions and categories to all of my articles, I think they're up to standard now but they still say they're going to be deleted.
The Ru Taigo article, I'm aware that it is not up to standard, I'm still in the process of writing the main body and other details. As for the duel article, I was unaware of the requirement of past tense writing, I'll fix that soon. I was refering to the Idris and Quoran Wenvaas articles, as well as another but I see that has the same issue as the duel article.
In both Idris and Quoran Wenvaas, you have sections which have headings but no content (e.g. See Also). Idris has some stray present tense (e.g. "These lightsabers have known three users"). In Quoran Wenvaas, you have "Allinement" as a heading—was that supposed to be "Alignment"? Also, the BtS has first person, which you should never use on a fanon page (it should say, e.g., "Quoran Wenvaas-Gray Jedi came up with this character when...", not "I came up with this character when..."). These are all just things I found at a glance.
Idris and Rol Dund's duel with Quoran Wenvaas share another issue—writing story in the middle of an article. If you want to create a story narrative, that needs to be on a separate page. Compare, for example, this article that describes a fight scene in one of my stories, against this page of the novel that actually shows it happening. Each has its place, but they have to be separate from one another; a fanon page should present events as an encyclopedic discussion, not a narrative.
I gather you're using the pre-formatted article templates (i.e. using "Create a..." under the Getting Started dropdown menu)? If so, be advised that not every article needs (or, in truth, merits) every section. The Layout Guide mandates only an Introduction and Main Body—and, on some shorter articles, they wind up being the same thing; here, for example, is one of mine where Intro and Main Body have blended into one because the article isn't long enough for them to be separated. Though some are recommended, every other section discussed in the Layout Guide is used only if applicable and/or desired.
Hey! I've decided I need to take a wikication. I've been feeling pretty burned out since March, & I feel like this has translated into increased levels of grumpiness in my interactions with other users. I've had it in my mind to take a break for a while, but I've decided to pull the trigger now thanks to some recent developments in my personal & professional lives. At the very latest, I expect to be back in time to handle any technical issues arising from Wikia's porting of the wiki over to the UCP in June or July—this won't be another unexplained five-month absence like last year.
Hey there, I would like to request for the deletion of a page of a character I created years ago, as well the as the picture added to it. I don't use this wiki anymore and I would just like to have that page that I made removed. Thank you and thanks for understanding.
Hello administrator, I am the creator of the clone unit called the 987th Cobalt Battalion. It has recently been put down for deletion in four days, unless I changed it. So, I used the format of a popular Fanon unit, Nexu Battalion (I changed all of the information, it was only the format made) and I ran it through Grammarly and stuck by your rules with spelling and grammar. Hopefully it will not longer need to be deleted. If there are any other issues surrounding the page, please be specific in what they are.
Yes, I think it's good to go now, so I've removed the administrative templates. Borrowing formatting from older, more established articles on the Wiki has a long and glorious tradition, and is the way many new users learn; you borrowed a decent chunk of language in the intro, but it's different enough that it's not an issue.
One note: you have a Google link in the code for the page image, but all images must be hosted here on Star Wars Fanon to show up. If you'd like to add an image, please review the tutorial for our Image Policy to learn how to correctly upload it.
Possibly under its own category or under the planet one, could you make a section where people can list celestial bodies, or more prominently, what I'd really like to see added is a phenomenon, like in space or a natural phenomenon on a planet.
I looked on my contributions wall, it gave me a list of points on various articles I've written. I got higher scores on my more recent articles and edits but I also got very low scores on some of my earlier ones. I was wondering if this was an automatic system or a user rating system. I assume it isnt user controled due to the fact that the numbers were extremely high, and in some cases very low. How do I improve these scores and what do they mean?
You're talking about the green and red numbers (green with a +, red with a -) here? That measures how many characters you added or removed in your last edit to a given page; one letter, symbol, or space is one character.
By any chance, is there a voting system, I doubt many people have taken the time to read my articles as they tend to be quite long, but if there was a liking/disliking system that could show me which ones need to be improved more.
No, no voting system; the Wiki's goal is to stimulate creativity, rather than be a popularity contest (apart from the annual Wiki Awards), and like/dislike doesn't really help the author improve, either. The Feedback template is your best bet for getting constructive, useful feedback.
