|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Bail Organa redirect.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
If you want to add new titles for Bail Organa, (ie Princess, First Chairman, Grand Poobah etc) PLEASE don't just replace the one that's there. It's there for a reason - to link him with preceeding and following Senators of Alderaan. If you replace the text, it stuffs it up. If you want to add more titles, add more boxes.

The only real-world information presented about this character is trivia about a cut scene and "confusion" (although there's no citation for there being confusion) about various Bails. I've redirected to the Star Wars list of characters. --EEMIV (talk) 16:42, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
- I have also boldly redirected a recreated article for this character at Bail Prestor Organa on the same grounds, though the new article was basically a stub in progress. I'll discuss the reasoning and any possible draft with the editor in question.— TAnthonyTalk 21:17, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
- Sorry for any trouble. He was my first edit here. So, from what I understood, an article about Bail Organa can't be created? I was searching for more sources to add to the info on the page (and the deleted scene in question about Bail and Mon Mothma was canonized http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bail_Organa#cite_note-Stirring_in_Senate-17 in Canon, according to this Wookieepedia source). I guess the character should have his own article, seeing he has been in three films of the franchise, and not to tell other EU/Legends material. Much minor, or characters that appeared much less or one time, like Bodhi Rook, Snoke, Maz, etc. have their own articles. I also wished to know how can I create an article based on characters such as Bail, because I understood his "page" was his redirect on the Star Wars list of characters. (Others I think could win an article based on multiple appearances would be Mon Mothma, Nute Gunray, and Wat Tambor)— DraftDrawTalk 18:24, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
- @DraftDraw: no apologies necessary and I just left a message on your talk page to explain more specifically why your newly created article was redirected back to List of Star Wars characters. A previous version of an article on this character was redirected because it contained all plot summary, poor sourcing and no citations asserting notability. Your newly created content was similarly incomplete. I understand, however, that it was just a start and you probably intended to expand and improve the article. I am happy to help advise you in doing so at Draft:Bail Organa (or your own sandbox), and assist you in moving the content to Bail Organa should it become appropriate. I have little doubt that you will be able to find citations to at least create an acceptable Start-class article along the lines of Jyn Erso, K-2SO, or the other you named above (some of which I myself created or have edited). Thanks.— TAnthonyTalk 21:33, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
The Wookiepedia link is broken; it should be to here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bail_Organa
Okay, wait... It seems like the Wookiepedia template might be broken..? I just did the link like a normal link. Could someone check if the Wookiepedia template used in the old version still works? It led me to a broken link. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tabbycatlove (talk • contribs) 01:48, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
