Karrde, do you want to make a central 'TIE Fighter' page that links to all the sub-variants? I'm doing the same thing with a main 'ISD' page atm. --Stark 16:33, 8 November 2007 (EST)

  • Sounds like a good idea. Wild Karrde 16:35, 8 November 2007 (EST)
    • Er, I was suggesting you create a new 'TIE fighter' page, then use it to link to your already extant 'TIE/fc' page. I hope I wasn't unclear, and you just figure a whole page per variant was excessive (which it probably is). :# Anyway, SWTC has great info on TIE fighters, variants, and EU apperances, so I'd recommend you go have a look. --Stark 16:39, 8 November 2007 (EST)
      • I thought you meant a single page with a list of TIE fighter varients? I'm still rather new at this... Wild Karrde 16:45, 8 November 2007 (EST)
        • Well, it's a wiki, we can always clean up the format later: adding content is important, so keep up the good work. :) --Stark 16:58, 8 November 2007 (EST)
          • I assume that link you posted in the article was meant to go here :p. Anyway I'm looking at the swtc for the info now but thanks anyway.Wild Karrde 17:15, 8 November 2007 (EST)

Images As Thumbnails Only

Seriously guys, those images look like shit. Use the thumbnail method to make them smaller and all the same size (200px). --Stark 17:40, 10 November 2007 (EST)

  • Thanks, Karrde. You can control where the images go using the justification or where it occurs in the text. Frankly I think having an image for every single type of TIE is stupid, given that most have a sentence written about them. --Stark 19:45, 10 November 2007 (EST)
    • Yeah, I finally figured out how to move the images around on the page. :) I agree about there being too many images on the page but I like having at least one image for each fighter, especially for the lesser known ones. Perhaps It's time to split them into multiple pages with links to them on the main TIE page?--Wild Karrde 07:05, 11 November 2007 (EST)
      • We could do an image gallery, similar to how [HeroesWiki] does them. Perhaps a Category:TIE Fighter Images or something, with a link to the "category gallery" at the bottom. -- Mad 09:06, 11 November 2007 (EST)

More General Edits

Added a couple of general descriptions for some entries. I don't really know how much info is wanted for each entry so the ones there now could act as placeholders or something?Wild Karrde 18:00, 8 November 2007 (EST)

  • Um, that -was- a link to SWTC? Either way. :) And yeah, don't worry too much about polish or huge amounts of content yet. --Stark 18:03, 8 November 2007 (EST)

TIE/In vs TIE/ln

Im very sure that the TIE/In picture is wrong, the one above the fc model. I think a normal TIE fighter is pictured, and there are 2 TIE Interceptor entries? (Goddamn, I didnt realize there were so many TIE models :P) EDIT: I made a TIE/In article, should I just make all links to the TIE/In redirect to this page or leave the article as it is? -Darth Ruinus 1:04 PM 11-09-07 (Pacific Time)

  • The [TIE/ln] (lowercase L) is a standard TIE fighter model. It is different from the TIE Interceptor. There is no such thing as a TIE/In (uppercase i). -- Mad 15:11, 9 November 2007 (EST)
    • Damn you guys are right, it's TIE/ln not TIE/In--MKSheppard 11:58, 10 November 2007 (EST)
      • My bad. L and i look exactly the same when I wrote the page. Stupid confusing alphabet! --Wild Karrde 16:23, 10 November 2007 (EST)
