Canon, what is it? Yes it is a type of artillery fixture however it has another meaning. "To understand canon and continuity, the overall Star Wars saga should be looked at as a set of stories written by many different people which "document\" past "events." Although some stories are more reliable than others, they all are looked upon as part of the overall "history." It should also be remembered that all of these stories are simply that-stories. There are numerous errors that inevitably arise between the stories simply because different authors have their own ways of telling the story and may not have the time and resources to perfectly align the details."- Wookieepedia. Different types of canon are present. In Star Wars canon, the highest level of canon is the 6 films made by George Lucas, the next level of cannon includes Tv Series such as the 2 Clone Wars series one made by Dave Filloni and the other by Genndy Tartakovsky. Last but not least, the next level of canon is the Novels and Comics written and published by various authors and companies.
In Tolkien's franchise, the concept of Canon is a little more complex, for the subject is still being debated. Naturally, the highest canon material is works published by J. R. R. Tolkien and his son, Christopher Tolkien. "I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama ." - J.R.R Tolkien. From 2001 to 2003, film maker, Peter Jackson released 3 films depicting his interpretation of The Lord Of the Rings trilogy. Certain events that Jackson cut out or re-wrote in his interpretation sparked controversy amongst some fans of the series. The biggest issue was that in Jackson's interpretation of The Return Of The King in 2003, depicted the Shire a happy and un-touched place after the destruction of the one ring. In Tolkien's book, when Frodo returns from destroying the ring, the Shire is in ruins, industrialized, and secretly under the control of Saruman. Despite the differences, Jackson's films are loved and enjoyed and will continue to be enjoyed for years to come.
The goal of this group, The Alliance To Restore Canon, is to compile and discuss contradictions with canon in various sci-fi and fantasy franchises. Not to criticize the franchises but to simply make note of the contradictions and ask "how does this contradict? Why does this contradict? Is it an accident or on purpose? Is it directly from the franchise or one of the many independent authors?". So again, we are not criticizing the franchises, just wondering why these contradictions exist and why have they not been fixed. Something as simple as deeming it uncanon can fix a contradiction. Like the 2008 Clone Wars series for example, George Lucas has not yet officially declared the series canon and whether or whether not the series will re-write existing canon entirely or simply add to the time- line that had been established before 2008.
At the moment, the Alliance To Restore Canon is mostly made up of star wars fans, but we are open to other sci-fi and fantasy series so if you have found contradictions in other franchises and feel as if your not being heard, don't be afraid to join. All are welcome and all are treated with respect.

My Pros and Cons list was meant as an unbiased acknowledgement of what is now, for better or worst, part of star wars canon rather than the usually I hate clone wars rants but I see Delta has manage to return to his usual totally biased, exaggerating self and managed to fill the list with his own one sided opinions disregarding others opinions.

theirs the biased card i predicted.

and your just upset because they're are more pros then cons on the list. It would be biased of me if i were to remove some of the cons in a vain attempt to even them out. also in doing that i'd be doing the people and injustice by hiding things to make you happy.

and was your original list as "unbaiased" as you claim? well lets take a look, i happen to have it right here:

If you notice, i took out everything that we agreed needed to be removed and added things that we agreed needed to be added. i removed nothing from the pros that we did not agree needed to be removed and I even added a few. Yes, i added quite a few Cons to the list too however, are they really quite as far fetched and exadurated as you claim? or is it perhaps that you don't view certain things like the changing of certain character's spices or depicting a certain culture as the polar opposite as what it had always been believed to be as "cons"?

it all comes down to what you think is "right" not what is necessarily "right"

also lets look at what you said was returning to my "usual state". even you cannot deny that ive come along way since the group first started. over the past couple of years ive started to censor myself, and organize all of the data i recive in concise graphs, lists and other graphical/ verbal representations of data
