--Kabutton (talk) 11:01, 18 April 2016 (PDT)I think you could be right! I only got my account last week, so I'm splurging now, I suspect the novelty will wane slightly, but I hope that I'll carry on contributing somewhat :-) I'm not very up on communicating via wiki, hopefully you'll see this! Spookypeanut (talk) 05:07, 18 April 2016 (PDT)

Btw, hope you don't mind the huge changes I've been making! I'm trying to make it as easy as possible for people to add episodes / guests. I love the subcategories btw, didn't even know that was possible! Hopefully you can see my plan by looking at Phantom Menace Minute 105: Undercover Boss, John Mathot and Etiquette and Protocol. If you don't like anything, just start a talk on the page and we can discuss it. Spookypeanut (talk) 06:03, 18 April 2016 (PDT)

I started a talk: Category_talk:Episodes#In_main_and_subcategory.2C_or_just_subcategory.3F Spookypeanut (talk) 06:08, 18 April 2016 (PDT)

Do you know if there's a way to report spam accounts / delete spam pages? I can delete the contents, but that bothers my obsessive side :-) Spookypeanut (talk) 08:46, 18 April 2016 (PDT)

I've deleted a few spam pages and blocked the spam users that posted them. I'm sure there are other spam users, but I'm going to leave them be unless they actually make a spam page. --Kabutton (talk) 09:16, 19 April 2016 (PDT)

Can I get your opinion on this please: Template_talk:SWM:WETemplate#Template_name Spookypeanut (talk) 08:30, 20 April 2016 (PDT)

Rachael (Noel) Fox

I went with rnf in the end, because that's what she has on her Twitter bio. So long as we get all links to the same place (and probably a redirect too) it doesn't really matter ☺

Ok cool. Yeah I just wanted to make sure they were consistent since it was about half with and half without. With is fine with me. --Kabutton (talk) 12:42, 25 April 2016 (PDT)

Now I can't decide... since uses "Rachael Fox" throughout! Let's just leave it as it is, we can always decide later. I'm willing to bet I'll have changed my mind again by the end of the week! Spookypeanut (talk) 05:50, 26 April 2016 (PDT)

Gun that shoots lightsabers

(I know you won't see this for a while, putting it here so I don't forget about it) Should we add Pete's favourite thing, a gun that shoots lightsabers, to the running jokes? It's not really a joke, but it comes up regularly enough that I feel it needs a mention somewhere. Spookypeanut (talk) 05:59, 27 April 2016 (PDT)

I say go for it. I'm always looking for ways to distinguish this wiki from the regular wookieepedia. I feel like they would never cover that most fabled of weapons, so that means we have to. The inside References /running jokes page seems like a fine place for it, since it's for things that get brought up on the show and are sort of running themes--Kabutton (talk) 10:51, 9 May 2016 (PDT)

User Rights

Hey there, do you know if we can "approve" users? All Chris's edits are showing as "unpatrolled", and we really don't need to patrol them! Spookypeanut (talk) 08:26, 8 June 2016 (PDT)

Pretty sure you have to be a bureaucrat (Pete) to change what group a user is in, or to change the rights of a group of users. For the time being I'm fine with just marking all his edits as patrolled.--Kabutton (talk) 09:15, 8 June 2016 (PDT)

Weekend Edition pictures

Thanks for doing the weekend edition pictures, they all look fabulous! I don't know how you do them so quickly! Spookypeanut (talk) 15:04, 8 June 2016 (PDT)

Hey thanks! I guess I just get into a rhythm and take care of business.--Kabutton (talk) 16:18, 8 June 2016 (PDT)

Hi. Do you think anyone is reading the Wiki? Is there a way of finding that out? I'd love to know if we're having an impact, or is that the wrong way to look at it? Should it be, "we're doing this for the fun"? Let me know what you think.--Dl1846 (talk) 07:12, 11 September 2016 (PDT)

People are totally reading it. I love watching the numbers go up on Special:PopularPages and Special:Statistics --Kabutton (talk) 17:34, 11 September 2016 (PDT)

Excellent - thanks.--Dl1846 (talk) 01:40, 14 September 2016 (PDT)

Hi. Would you consider making me an admin, primarily so that I can delete spam pages? Thanks for considering this.--Dl1846 (talk) 16:58, 11 September 2016 (PDT)

Only User:PeteTheRetailer can do that. I'd ask him. --Kabutton (talk) 17:34, 11 September 2016 (PDT)

Roger roger. Thanks.--Dl1846 (talk) 01:40, 14 September 2016 (PDT)

Thanks for doing the back-fill, cross-linking & elaboration on my Tasha Robinson addition! I was just getting to it and "Oh wow, it's already done!". --Hamletseries (talk)

You're welcome! I would have done it sooner if I had known you were THAT Bob.--Kabutton (talk) 10:11, 27 July 2017 (PDT)

You've Been Busy!

Wow, you've been doing a lot of changes! Can you talk me through some of them? Or I guess you could write an email to the wiki team if you think they warrant it. Spookypeanut (talk) 01:27, 9 May 2018 (PDT)


It's good to be back! I'm planning to do SWM:WE much less thoroughly, and concentrate on more interesting stuff to keep my interest. No problem about the revert, I've done that myself plenty. I don't know what the etiquette is with the User:Talk pages. Are you supposed to wipe them clean every so often, like a chalkboard? Spookypeanut (talk) 15:07, 9 May 2019 (PDT)
