Fanfic[edit]

Yep, this's fake, too. The title is legit, however; it's thein-universe name used to refer to the events covered in the GameboyAdvance game Star Wars: The New Droid Army. JonHart 22:40, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

Sigh. Will vandals never cease? At least I can replace thenonsense with something. --Maru(talk) 00:20, 8 October 2005 (UTC)


Barnstar[edit]

Thanks for the badass star thingy, by the way. I just noticed itspresence on my page. Woohoo, I rule! --Jon Hart22:57, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

That's what you get for being in the SW cabal.--Maru (talk)00:20, 8 October 2005 (UTC)


Mission Vao[edit]

Mission cannot become a Jedi (unless you use a third-party mod). Thisis KOTOR I, not KOTOR II. - Sikon 00:52, 8 October 2005(UTC)

Oops. I coulda sworn she could become a Jedi. Hmm. Better undo thatthen. --Maru (talk)00:54, 8 October 2005 (UTC)


Thank you for voting on my RfA[edit]

Dear Marudubshinki: Even though you voted Neutral on my candidacy, Iwould like to thank you for taking the time to vote on my RfA. Opposeand Neutral votes are as useful to me as Support votes, since theyserve to highlight areas in which I can improve myself and become abetter administrator. As my RfA was successful, I would be mostgrateful if you would please tell me how you would like to see meimprove, and what areas you think I should work on, as I am alwayslooking for feedback. I am most grateful for your assistance, and Ilook forward to working with you in the future. Best regards,--<fontcolor="#906040">NicholasTurnbull |(talk)(e-mail) (cabal) 05:16, 8 October 2005 (UTC)

I was wondering when you would finally make it to me. I've followedthe progress of your thanks with interest (I actually found itastonishing and not a little disturbing how many of the user pages whovoted I watch.) I'm not at all unhappy with the outcome of the RfA. Icouldn't bring myself to actually vote support, but I was rooting foryou regardless. As far as improvements go, really, you only need todiscard any resemblance of a life outside of Wikipedia and I'll behappy. :) --Maru(talk) 05:30, 8 October 2005 (UTC)


Wiki Wars![edit]

Argh! I was misled by your phrase "your Arbitraryness... etc".Anyway, I'll leave you specialists take over from now on ;) Plus I wasdying to say that... please re add it when you see fit;) Hugs! <fontcolor="green">ShauriHeart.gif <fontcolor="peach">smile! <fontcolor="black">19:12, 9 October 2005 (UTC)</fontcolor>

Actually, you weren't. Darth Vader and Princess Leia have a verybrief appearance, which breaks up the long on-Tatooine section of themovie. And I definitely will add your comment- EB for Dantooine workson so many levels. --Maru(talk) 19:37, 9 October 2005 (UTC)


Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dara Jade[edit]

I noticed you deleted Dara Jade, and I was going to closeWikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dara Jade...but I'm not sure whatspeedy criterion you used. Lemme know and I can close the AFD for you.--A Man In Black (conspire | past ops) 20:22, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Haft already taken care of that. --Maru(talk) 20:40, 10 October 2005 (UTC)


Why yes, you did[edit]

And feel free to butt in on my talk page any time you have somethinguseful to say. Letting me know I'm not totally insane (or calling meon it when I am) is always appreciated. --A ManIn <fontcolor="000000">Black (conspire | past ops) 22:28, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

I shall, only so long as you feel free to butt in mine.--Maru (talk)22:33, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Image use[edit]

Hi Sorry if I keep asking dumb questions! :( But I have a big doubt..how can people just pick up pictures from anysite and use them? Why are there pictures from sites likepremierleague.com in articles here? These are copyright infringements,right? Can a picture be used from a site which is not updated anymore,and the email address of its webmaster is dysfunctional? Arescreenshots really a legal way of using pictures? Thanks a lot. --Aabha R 08:57, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Ah. This is indeed a tricky area. I don't understand all thedetails. Generally an image falls into a couple areas: first, thecopyright holder knowingly licenses them into a Free license; for anexample I did, see the pic for Buttercup Festival (I bugged theauthor into giving me permission). Secondly, they can be publicdomain- all pictures published before 1923 for example, are always inthe public domain. Thirdly, they can be from an entity whose works arepublic domain- the US government's photos and text is public domain,for example, and bizaarely, anything at all from Soviet Russia before1973 is public domain in the US. Fourthly, and most relevant to yourquestion, is "fair use". Fair use is a hideously complex field ofcopyright, and I won't even try to summarize it. Just seeWikipedia:Fair use, and good luck. --Maru(talk) 21:03, 11 October 2005 (UTC)
Thanks --Aabha R 14:06, 12 October 2005 (UTC)


Palpatine the Undying[edit]

Pardon my tardiness in response to your inquiry of 28 Septemberregarding the epithet "Palpatine the Undying"; I was occupied in apermanent change of residence from the west coast to the east. Maj.Arhul Hextrophon, Executive Secretary and Master Historian, AlliedHigh Command, used this term when he referred to Palpatine during aguest lecture he gave at the Brionelle Memorial Military Academy,Chandrila, shortly after the events of Dark Empire, quoted in theDark Empire Sourcebook. --Publius 14:16, 12October 2005 (UTC)

No need to apologize- I understand completely. The matter was not ofgreat importance regardless. Thank you for the reference. (And btw,as I seem unable to edit your wiki, may I suggest you add a footnoteor reference in your essay?) --Maru(talk) 14:39, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
