For those who are new and don't know me, I'm am Alexsau1991 - Alex. And I've been an editor here on TOR wiki since it's inception back in 2008, as more information came from BioWare and I dedicated more hours to TOR Wiki and subsequently I became an Admin and Bureaucrat.
My aim, and the aim of all other editors, was to make this the top resource for information for Star Wars: The Old Republic, and as far as wiki resources go, we did achieve that aim.
But unfortunately it just wasn't to be, wiki implemented an unpopular new skin, and moved from a practical encyclopaedic layout to function more like a social networking site, this caused a split, which expanded when Curse revived one of our former competitors, and since our editors here have be…Read more >
The nondisclosure agreement that prevents players from discussing or showing what they have experienced in TORs beta has now been lifted, meaning leaks are now non-existant. 
That doesn't mean information can be added with out correct sourcing, far from it. For example, if one tester says that Twi'lek's are playable by the Sith Warrior it can not be added unless their is proof to back it up.
We should be vigilant about fake information being added from this point on, as for us non-testers we can't know for sure if information is true of false.Read more >
Well in Wikia's latest demonstration in pandering to their advertisers rather than taking care of their communities they have decided to make another change, which is to be welcomed by their already disgruntled communities in the same manner that Sarah Ferguson would, at any British function.

Working in a similar way to the blogs, posters will type their message without going to the editor screen. Once 20 messages have been posted then it will be archived, and un-editable by anyone - including local Admin.
For now this isn't going to change article talkpages, only user talkpages. As for a reason that I don't understand this won't change for…Read more >
Just looking through some of the Blog posts has made me think about our policy on what, as a community, we use the blog system for and what is aloud and not aloud.
Many other wiki have forums that contributors and visitors discuss various subjects on, this is done much as a talkpage, and little represents any forum that I've ever used before, here however most users seem to favour starting a blog for such things. We have used them to discuss policy historically, publish wiki/TOR news users have introduced themselves and their have been many game aspect discussions, things that you would usually find on a forum.
My question is, should we continue this unofficial policy that has so far served us well but regulated what can and can not be said …Read more >
