Wookieepedia tracks ‘Star Wars’

Web site covers all aspects of film's universe

Got a burning question about the history of Naboo? Need to know the true identity of Lumiya, the Dark Lady of the Sith? And who were Luke Skywalker’s childhood friends?

For the answers, look no further than Wookieepedia.com, a wiki-style Web site with more than 47,000 articles on every aspect of the “Star Wars” universe.

Founder Chad Barbry, a network administrator who lives in Arkansas, says he came up with the idea for the site after visiting “Star Wars”-related pages on the user-created online encyclopedia Wikipedia that featured simple lists of minor characters and planets.

“I thought it would be a good idea to create a sister project to Wikipedia that would be a more extensive encyclopedia focused on just ‘Star Wars,’ where the content regarding those things could be developed more fully,” he says.

Now, about 1,500 members from around the world contribute between 30 and 40 new articles per day and make 37,000 edits per month, impressing even Barbry with their immense knowledge and passion.

“In my realm of friends and associates, I was about the biggest ‘Star Wars’ fan I knew,” he says. “But meeting these fans from all over the world, I quickly realized that I know very little about the ‘Star Wars’ universe.”
