Edit summary

Hello. Please remember to provide an edit summary more often. Thanks and happy edits.

I would like to thank you for your contributions to Wookieepedia. It is recommended that you use the preview button before you save; this helps you find any errors you have made, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thanks again.
Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wookieepedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button File:Wikisigbutton.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you!
Thanks for contributing to Wookieepedia! Before posting talk page comments, please familiarize yourself with the disclaimer at the top of talk pages, {{Talkheader}}. Talk pages are for discussion relating to changes to the article, not for a discussion about the topic in question. Thank you.


Image deletion warningThe image File:Image_name has been listed at Wookieepedia:Images and media for deletion. If you feel that this image should not be deleted, please go there to voice your opinion.
Images listed for deletion

Some of the images and/or media files that you have uploaded have been listed for deletion. Please see Wookieepedia:Images and media for deletion if you are interested in preserving them.

Thank you.


While your edit is appreciated, the page you just edited currently has a template called {{Inuse}} at the top. This template means that someone is currently working on improving the article, and to avoid edit conflicts, no one other than the placer of the template should edit the page while the message is visible. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please refer to Wookieepedia:Images, which can be found under the "other policies and guidelines" link in your welcome message, and familiarize yourself with the sourcing and licensing requirements before uploading any more images. The only uploading method supported by Wookieepedia, Special:Upload, will prompt you to enter this information. If you are using an unsupported upload form, ignorance is not an acceptable excuse. Continued violation of the image policy or falsification of any information in an upload description are considered vandalism and will likely result in a block. Thank you.
Please do not replace Wookieepedia pages with blank content. Blank pages are harmful to Wookieepedia because they have a tendency to confuse readers. If it is a duplicate article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalized, please revert it to the last legitimate version. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please edit the page and replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please see the deletion policy for how to proceed. Thanks for contributing to Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki!
Please do not post copyrighted material to Wookieepedia without permission from the copyright holder. For more information, see Wookieepedia:Copyrights. Copyright violations are unacceptable and persistent violators will be blocked. Your original contributions are welcome.
If a picture is already on the site then there is no need to upload it again. Just use the one that's already uploaded. If you're unsure how, please read the guide to image use. Thanks.
Before renaming or moving an article, please use the article's Talk page to discuss whether or not the Wookieepedia community agrees with the move; otherwise this may trigger edit wars, break article links, or cause other problems. Please keep in mind that Wookieepedia has guidelines to help identify how an article should be named. Thanks!
Please do not move pages to nonsensical titles. It is considered vandalism. Thank you.
Please stop. If you continue to unilaterally move pages without following the correct procedure, an administrator will block you from editing Wookieepedia.

It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from an article. Please be careful not to remove content from Wookieepedia without a valid reason, which you should specify in the edit summary or on the article's talk page. Thank you.

The article you created at [[{{{1}}}]] met our criteria for speedy deletion. Since it appears to be about you or a character you created, I've moved it to your user space instead, which was probably what you intended in the first place (a common mistake among newcomers.)

If you really did mean to create an article about yourself, a persona you use in roleplaying, or a character from your fan fiction, please be aware that fanon is generally disallowed on Wookieepedia. The only exception to this rule are user pages, subject to the rules set in our user page policy. Your contributions may better fit the Star Wars Fanon Wiki.


Your fan fiction is over 250 words long.

Your userpage currently breaches the officially adopted limit of 250 words for fanon works. Please trim it down to an appropriate length over the next two weeks, or steps will be taken.

You may find that the Star Wars Fanon Wiki is more suited to your fanoneering needs.

Please be aware that if you refuse to comply, you may be blocked from editing in the future for a fanon word limit breach.

Please verify Your article [[{{{1}}}]] currently isn't attributed to a reliable source. Please familiarize yourself with Wookieepedia's Sourcing policy and guidelines and add a proper source to the article. If a source is not added within one week, your article will be deleted.


30px You have been blocked from editing for {{{1}}}. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified.

You have been banned because your username is not allowed under Wookieepedia policies.

If you see this message on your talk page, it means that your account has been blocked from editing Wookieepedia because the username you chose is not allowed on this wiki. It may resemble the username of a persistent vandal, of another user, be obscene/offensive or otherwise inappropriate. If you need, consult the administrator that banned you for clarification.

This message does not mean that you, as a person, are unwelcome at Wookieepedia; only your username is. Feel free to create a new account that does not violate the Wookieepedia username policy. If you find out that you cannot create an account and/or edit pages with this IP altogether, it may be a technical issue; contact an administrator to resolve it.
