Darth Traya[edit]

Should this be deleted? Kept? Or merged to List of Star Wars Sith characters? Or something completely different? 88 unique google hits are returned for this particular Sith character. --GRider\talk 00:03, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Merge with something or keep. Kappa 01:06, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Unsure about the notability, but article is detailed and presumably accurate. - Jpo 01:42, Mar 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, notability not established. ComCat 02:12, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge with Minor villains in Star Wars. -- Riffsyphon1024 02:38, Mar 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep; no reason not to as Wikipedia is not Paper blah blah, and merging somehwere else would just muddy that article. Jgm 03:03, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, but with reservations. Article needs cleanup and expansion. Megan1967 03:28, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge, as per Riffsyphon, or perhaps just delete. If this guy is only from a video game then I'm leaning towards the latter. -R. fiend 06:47, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • He's still a character created by LucasArts, which I believe is at least worthy of a merge. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:53, Mar 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge as above. Be bold. Radiant! 09:18, Mar 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep as per Jgm.--Jacobw 10:16, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge though I hope somebody at Lucasfilm wises up to the fact that creating tons of new minor Darths takes away somewhat from the uniqueness of the truly great villain Darth Vader. Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 14:35, Mar 9, 2005 (UTC)
    If that someone has a beard and merchandising rights, I think your hope is wasted. Gazpacho
  • Comment. When I was younger, I used to have an encyclopedia of literary characters... perhaps Wikipedia should spin off a separate wiki for collections of fictitious characters and fictitious worlds (of which there are plenty here) - and restrict the regular Wikipedia to fictional characters and worlds that are notable to a significant population... i.e. that come up as pop culture references or the like. --BD2412 23:16, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Like "Wikicruft", or something. Might work. Anyways, I gotta say weak keep. For fairly notable characters in highly notable computer RPGs, which link up to a larger, ultra-notable universe, that's how it should be. See Sarevok and Minsc.-LtNOWIS 02:15, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Do you mean something akin to Memory Alpha? Uncle G 17:11, 2005 Mar 11 (UTC)
  • Keep or merge/redirect. -Sean Curtin 03:17, Mar 10, 2005 (UTC)
  • I am changing my vote to Keep, based upon the reasoning that GRider has been putting at least 10 SW articles of good quality up for deletion. To merge this with the Villians article would clutter it, as Jgm said previously. The article is large to hold its own. -- Riffsyphon1024 03:23, Mar 10, 2005 (UTC)
  • KeepThe article is fairly long and seems accurate. The person who wrote it must have gathered a lot of information, presumably from the video game he/she mentions at the beginning of the article. I would hate to see this article go, and maybe, as a user above mentions, there should be a Wikipedia for fictional things. Perhaps something like 'Wikific' or 'Wikifiction'.

  • Keep. Encyclopedic, interesting and even esoteric. I like it. - Lucky 6.9 09:30, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. I wouldn't fit Darth Traya into the Villains article anyways, as she's quite a complex character. Wakuseino 05:32, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. The character is notable in the Star Wars universe. Carbonite | Talk 05:51, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
