You'll have to ask whoever promoted me way back in the day, since they're the one who decided to tack that onto my user rights. It does, however, give me moderation over our forums, which we use to discuss episodes, wiki stuff, and the like.
Please mind your tone. Hostile messages towards other users will get you blocked by an administrator.
In regard to your edits, I'll remind you once again that information about the Solo film does not belong on here. We are a wiki about Star Wars Rebels, so we cover information about Rebels and its tie-in media only. Information about The Clone Wars series is allowed because of the numerous callbacks in Rebels as well as other books that relate directly to that era. If people want more information about Maul in other eras of Star Wars, they can go to Wookieepedia.
Maul's article tells his story only as it relates to Rebels. We can't cover every little tidbit of his life outside of the show. Go to Wookieepedia if you want to write about it. Otherwise, this wiki would lose its focus and become a Star Wars free-for-all.
I would like you to join my wiki: Star Wars Clone Wars Original. It's a wiki with content from the 2003 Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon. It isn't necessary to do much. I'll make you an admin (on my wiki the equivalent is Captain) and you just have to look out for vandals or whoever might write bad things on the wiki articles from time to time. Answer me on my talk page please, since it's easier for me to check it so.
I only know the now canon SW (films, TCW, R, books, comics, videogames) but I know the first EU had many books, comics, and videogames very different to the official canon but many characters created from those stories are now canon characters like Thrawn.
Did you view the old EU has canon until Disney declared it non canon? Do you like the canon Disney has made?
I want to read the now dubbed Legends books but which should I start on?
I did and still consider most of the EU canon. It had its low spots, but overall it was a brilliant universe of great stories. I'm always happy whenever Disney retains a part of the EU in their new canon. Overall, I'm enjoying the new continuity too, but the old canon will always hold a special place in my heart. Just keep in mind that the new canon will probably seem very different from what you read in the EU.
If you've enjoyed Thrawn in Rebels, then you should read the book where he made his debut: Heir to the Empire. It explores his character way more in-depth and it's a great read. One of the best ways to start exploring the EU, in my not-so-humble opinion.
So when you use the word canon you mean what you personally choose to be canon not what is declared official by Disney (There is nothing wrong with that at all. I admire fans who choose pesonal canon of big franchises even if I don't always agree with them).
You like the new canon but love the old one. Correct?
I'll read the Thrawn trilogy one day. I know from what I read on wookipedia that the declared Canon and Legends are indeed VERY different. I'll probably like Canon more as I like TCW and Rebels as well as the new films and new books but I'll most likely still like the books a lot. I shall appericiate what has come before.
Did George Lucas never considered the old EU offcial canon? If not then why did many fans? I don't doubt many are great books/comics/videogames but before Disney owned Star Wars didn't George had every say of what was and what wasn't canon? Or was it hard to decide as he just ignored them mostly and when TCW show happened Lucas / Filoni / Kennedy made changes to what they didn't like of the EU.
Sorry, I'll be more specific. Typically, I use "canon" same way Disney/Lucasfilm does. As in, what they recognize as canon (original movies, TV shows, everything after April 2014, etc.). Everything is "official"... from a certain point of view.
In the end, the Star Wars universe is what you make of it. Explore it and see what you find.
