Wookieepedia has posted their new canon policy. Unsurprisingly, they seem to be keeping the (pre-Legends) status quo, using a modified version of the old canon hierarchy. The coming years are certainly going to be ‘fun’ for them.
(No, I don’t think the breast article is going anywhere.)

Interested in starting your own Star Wars fansite, or just want a peek behind the curtain? Join @clubjade and several other sites on the Twitter hashtag #SWFS for the Star Wars Fansite Seminar.
You can ask questions and share your thoughts all day Thursday, January 25th – assuming you have a Twitter acount, that is.
Spotlight. Essential Guide to Warfare co-author Paul Urquhart takes a look at ‘the best star-pilots in the galaxy’. But what we’re really talking about here is the art by Frank-Joseph “Mazzic” Frelier, which includes what I think is out first look at Syal Antilles.
In other Warfare-related matters, there have been three more installments of endnotes since we last checked in: 9, 10 and 11.
Awards. John Jackson Miller’s Knight Errant is a Scribe Award nominee for Best Original Novel in the Speculative Fiction category. The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers are also naming Expanded Universe alumni Kevin J. Anderson as the year’s Grandmaster. Other familiar names among the nominees include Mike Stackpole (for his Conan the Barbarian adaption) and A.C. Crispin for her Pirates of the Caribbean novel.
Interviews. Lots of them! In the world of podcasts, we have Aaron Allston over at Tosche Station Radio and Mike Stackpole at Star Wars Book Report. If you can stomach the ForceCast, they had Leland Chee on, plus there’s a new Jedi Journals. If it’s text you prefer, Tom Taylor talks Darth Maul at CBR.
Teases. A bounty hunter short story by a new-to-Star Wars author will be gracing the pages of Insider #136. Karen Miller’s Myri Antilles story will be in the next issue, #135.
Now hiring… NJOE, EUCantina and Knights Archive are looking for some dedicated fans to join their respective sites. (Rather limited) internet fame! Glamour! No money! But possibly drinks at CVI!
