Canonicity of Statements

"The capital of the PVE was Vasuda Prime until it was devastated by SD Lucifer in 2335. Afterwards, the capital was moved to Aldebaran."
Source? - Snail 11:58, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

AFAIK, the capital of the GTVA Vasudans is still Vasuda Prime, so it seems unlikely... Ngtm1r 00:42, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
It's one of those obscure bits of community trivia, like the naming of the GTD Legion. One of the Volition employees apparently said so, as related by Zarathud in his review for The Destiny of Peace. The problem is that the only places where Volition employees commented regularly were the VBB and the FDL, both of which are no longer online. - Goober5000 14:53, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Previous Speculative Section

The speculative section is also contradictory to canon in several places. I will nuke it if nobody objects. - Snail 06:00, 18 July 2008 (CDT)

  • Is it a TVWP-specific edit or a random "I think this happened" edit? If it's the former, it should be stated that "This section is based on the Terran-Vasudan War Project." Otherwise nuke it. The GTA article also has a similar section, perhaps that should be revised to deleted, too. - TopAce 06:06, 18 July 2008 (CDT)
    • Doesn't look like it's TVWP to me, it was added since the beginning by some random guest guy. Snail 06:26, 18 July 2008 (CDT)
      • Removed. - TopAce 06:36, 18 July 2008 (CDT)

Non-Canon Info: This is a Social Experiment

  • I have added a large chunk of non-canon information to the article, which I have clearly made up. However it is clearly marked. Do you find this acceptable? (note that the addition follows non-canon guidelines strictly) - Snail 20:38, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
    • It's interesting. I'd suggest to add two sections, "Canon" and "Non-canon"(or "Description" and "Non-canon") to emphasize the fact that the current parts of the page should be separated. Other than that, good job - it'd be nice to have several non-canon parts for each campaign showing original aspects of the PVE. Needless to say that TVWP's part will probably be the longest one. --- Mobius
      • TBH I agreed with Wanderer's idea of creating a subpage for non-canon stuff. Would add a lot of clarity to the Wiki. Not only that, but it'd be a place to add even more non-canon data without being obstructive. In that way we could have a whole load of non-canon subpages which could become a repository for all user-made campaigns - Without distracting from the canon info (which was my main annoyance about the issue). - Snail 21:48, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
        • It may work as long as either versions are properly linked throughout the Wiki. --- Mobius

Canonicity of Ambassadors

Somebody cite a freaking source, please? You have three days. Ngtm1r 13:34, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

The Vasudan government is parliamentary in nature, but is presided over by the Imperial family and the Ambassadors, who are quasi-royal go-betweens for the Parliament and the Imperium.
FreeSpace Species tech description for Vasudans. That's your freaking source. Lay off, seriously, your whole "old grumpy community member" image is starting to get old. - Snail 18:22, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Hush, you young whippersnapper. Ngtm1r 01:16, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE - Snail 18:30, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
Sounds like an energy drink now. Ngtm1r 23:26, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
Stop saying stuff, I get the last werd! - Snail 12:59, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
