500th Article Extravaganza
On January 1st, 2017, the Wiki hit a major landmark: 500 pages. In honor of this achievement, a weeklong series of polls was held on the Star Wars Minute Listener's Society Facebook page to receive input from listeners on new entries for the Wiki. The goal was to tailor the Wiki entries to better fit the lore of the STAR WARS MINUTE and to increase visibility of the hard work done by the Wiki Team.
