WTF is with the name of this article? What's with the fingerquotes? They're not 'personal' on a robot? So why not call them 'droideka shields' then? Bleh. --Stark 23:09, 7 November 2007 (EST)

I'm not sure, the finger quotes were there when I got here, and I dont know how to change the article name so I couldn't do much about it. --Darth Ruinus 9:26 PM November 7, 2007 (Pacific Time)

Fixed the title for you Darth. :p Wild Karrde 00:55, 8 November 2007 (EST)

Thanks, damn, I got to learn more of the code things XD --Darth Ruinus 10:12 PM November 7, 2007 (Pacific Time)

  • Now that I am a super-powered admin of terror, how bout someone let me know how to rename articles? :) --Stark 03:21, 8 November 2007 (EST)
    • You should see a "move" tab at the top of the article, along with "article," "discussion," "edit," etc. - Mad

"while the Droideka employed at the Battle of Geonosis did not." Were they still rolling or had they had a chance to unroll yet? If I remember the novelization correctly, the reason the shields weren't up was because they were destroyed before they could unroll successfully. I'll double-check the novelization before editing, but if anyone else can confirm this, let me know. --BountyHunterSAx 12:10, 8 November 2007 (EST)

  • I believe that explanation may apply for the Battle of Naboo (fought by the Gungans), but there was never any sign of a shield in Attack of the Clones. --Ted C 12:47, 8 November 2007 (EST)
    • Ah, thanks for the info. Perhaps that's where I read it, nevermind. --BountyHunterSAx 12:51, 8 November 2007 (EST)

Quick Question, someone confirm it and put it in if I'm right. I seem to recall reading that a design flaw in the droideka's is that if they get knocked over their shields try to repel the ground until they tap-out of energy. I'm fairly sure it was because the gravity in Invisible Hand was failing, so the novelization of ROTS. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Should put this in. --BountyHunterSAx 15:14, 11 November 2007 (EST)
