Wookieepedia is a wiki featuring canon information on the Star Wars universe.
It features articles on both Canon and Legends subjects, as well as out-of-universe articles on cast and crew and Star Wars publications and productions. Legends refers to formerly canonical events from the expanded universe source material. These events were declared non-canonical in 2014, to allow for the sequel trilogy.
Wookieepedia has grown to be one of the biggest unofficial Star Wars resources on the internet, with over 167,000 articles created and maintained by its community. It is currently the sixth-largest English language Wikia community in the world.
Wookieepedia previously had a naming policy that the articles for any real-life creatives, such as actors and authors, were to be titled according to the credited name seen in their Star Wars work(s), whether that be an abbreviation/stage name or pseudonym. The policy was not inclusive of transgender individuals whose chosen name was not their credited name. Several attempts by editors to correct article titles were reverted by site administrators who cited the naming policy.
After Fandom's statement, Toprawa refused to allow the removal of deadnames from the body of articles. Other site administrators and editors privately contacted each other and Fandom with ongoing concerns regarding Toprawa and another administrator, Darth Culator. The pair were subsequently globally banned from Fandom and removed as site administrators, with Fandom issuing a statement about the culture of bullying and intimidation promoted by the banned former administrators.
