Talk:Pentastar Alignment (Year 13)

From Holocron - Star Wars Combine

Several thoughts

As this new faction isn't a government yet, perhaps the Infobox_Government template should not be used. Infobox_Faction template should be utilized instead?

More importantly, as the old Pentastar Alignment was a famous galactic government and the vast majority of existing article links on the Holocron refer to that former Pentastar Alignment, the "Pentastar Alignment" page itself should become a Disambiguation page. As such, this new group should become "Pentastar Alignment (Year 13)" and its relationship to the old Pentastar Alignment (or lack thereof) clearly delineated in the disambiguation page. -- Rupert Havok 06:02, 27 August 2012 (GMT)

Agree with Rupert. Jake Azzameen 10:03, 27 August 2012 (GMT)
Very much agreed. If my memory serves me right, the old Pentastar Alignment merged with the Red Star Alliance to become Rogue Squadron(?) or some such. In some of these cases it's really hard to determine what is best to do when someone lays claim to the name of a defunct/merged group. Complications also arise if they adopt the old group's history as their own, regardless of any actual ties. Obviously we can't really stop any of that from happening, but I feel the articles on the Holocron should at least make the distinction between incarnations of a group name. --Alex Tylger 22:36, 27 August 2012 (GMT)
I concur both to Alex and Rupert as well. --Qatar Shendo 20:53, 28 August 2012 (GMT)
Fully agree. Nice job! :)--Dreighton 13:59, 12 September 2012 (GMT)
