It did get implemented. Then the community voted to repeal it.
When was this?
Heh, I even voted to repeal it. Shows what I know.
If Wookiee has tabs for Canon and Legends then there should be a tab/category for No-Canon, as in they belong to neither "timelines". Either that or relegate Legends to an umbrella category of Non-Canon if they don't want additional tabs/think an exclusive No-Canon category would lack content. I think that's the best solution right now. No cohesion in no-canon shouldn't be an issue since that's the point of them being no-canon.
Or keep it all on one page, since Legends material is (appropriately) referenced in Behind the Scenes sections of Canon pages anyway.
In my mind it would create a better way of tracking the way Star Wars as a story has evolved over the last forty years, as opposed to the current method which pretends like the latest retcon is somehow "realest".
having legends and canon on one page would make the pages pretty damn long.
It's better this way, easier for research.
Why is Mon Mothma’s daughter Lieda’s page on the wook titled “Lieda Mothma”? As far as I know, she’s only mentioned in the comic featuring Mon Mothma’s son, Jobim (and Jobim is clearly his last name as he’s called “Corporal Jobim” and not Corporal Mothma), and Lieda’s last name isn’t given - so what gives?

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia calls her Lieda Mothma, for one.
It did? Well that's weird.
Is it weird? She's Mon's daughter. It's weirder that the comic, as Daneira pointed out, seems to think Jobin is her son's last name, so that feels more like the aberration.
It might have been interesting if they do what some societies of Earth do, with family/tribe name first and individual name last. Although they can't do that if the sourcebook reversed it. Alas.
Would be cool to see more variety in naming conventions though, seeing is there's quite a bit of it in the real world. Multiple last names. Different names for males/females/other genders or occupation, etc.
It may have been that the CSWE only called her that because the Wookieepedia article for her called her that in the first place. I remember a few cases of CSWE clearly having gone to Wookieepedia for its info.
I don’t think it’s weird that Mon Mothma’s son would have a different last name than her. That would just mean that the father of the child is also a Jobin and the son took his father’s last name.

It's weird in the sense that, before that source, no other source called her that. It's all I meant.
Things are boiling over on Wookieepedia. One of the threads for example.
You definitely haven't been around Wookieepedia much. On a scale of zero to boiling over, that rates somewhere around "glass of water left in the sun for ten minutes."
Been on Wookieepedia since c. 2004 and I don't attend the forums much unless they have something I like to know about. Then again, the last time I started a forum I got lambasted for taking away everyone from the commanders list that held a rank over Lieutenant.
Based on your comment about the forum topic you started, I presume you're Shannon.JediKnight? If so, your first edit was in October of 2006. (Wookieepedia was founded in 2005.)
Regardless, I'm surprised you've been there for nigh on twelve years and yet threads like the one you linked seem like a big deal.
And considering how many people were agreeing with you in the commanders list thread and trying to find a good compromise, I'm not sure "lambasted" is a fair characterization of what went on there.
Wookieepedians are long-winded (me = guilty as charged) and often come across as very self-important (see also: the "Information coming from a script" thread) so it's not really a surprise to me that a thread like the commanders one could come across as pretty intense. What's tame on a wiki can often be over the top relative to other sites!
You have a fair point. Only one person wanted the Commanders list to be a participants list - which I know was on the Legends pages for a number of years (and I'm in favour of their return). My memory of that time is a haze considering I was also seeking another outlet on the whole completely unwarranted TLJ hatred.
I'm also one of those that thinks that Star Wars in 100 Scenes is canon, if only for the sake of named characters such as Jake Farrell and the correct picture for Ekelarc Yong (considering its still Telsij on databank).
And yes, I am Shannon.JediKnight (wish I could change that now since I was 16 when I first joined the site).
I rarely use "the twelve years of service" criterion (mainly because it does not give you any popularity, let alone power). Except when I grow frustrated, of course. And, by the stars, in this case, I am!
Do you realize that even members the Story Group find some of our policies too strict/unnecessarily limiting? An example? Gladly.
In "The Lost Eggs of Livorno," the name "Lepi" was never spoken. Which means that, according to our policies, Canon!Jaxxon doesn't have a species right now.
What did Matt Martin say? "I think you’re safe to use Lepi. We don’t usually change species names." Someone tells him it's against the rules. Leland Chee chimes in, saying "Couldn't you just rename the Lepi entry as "Jaxxon's species?" He's told it's not allowed either. Chee retorts: "I have tons of entries in the Holocron without a proper name whether they be unnamed characters, species, tech, whatever. If you don't have SOME type of placeholder entry, then the information doesn't get tracked." Martin then adds: "I’m personally glad that Twitter isn’t a source but when it comes to things like this it’d be nice if there was a way to do it. Like an existing name that hasn’t been explicitly stated in the new continuity should be able to be used as “unconfirmed” or something."
WTK as in "What the kark?"
Or kriff, either works.
