I hope whoever did this had fun, because I don't see any other point.

"Episodes 6, 5 and 6"
"Jabba the Hut" should be Hutt
"Malakill" should be Malakili

Keep working on it, bro.

So some designer is seeing other people using a periodic table and throws a bunch of characters at it.  Here is a hint, the Emperor shouldn't be in the middle of the of the 3rd row, let alone next to Boba Fett.

The odd font doing the Futurama alien lettering thing doesn't help either.

I thought it was gonna be like...time-period, like some sort of star-wars themed Victorian table or something.


I'm disappointed.

Subby's trollin' the geek tab with a reference to the "period table." Some are unhappy, some see art.

nytmare: "Episodes 6, 5 and 6"


that's the one that bugged me the most.  you went through ALL this trouble and then screw up something like that?

also C-3P0 is GR for "golden rod?"

c'mon.  Wouldn't PD for "protocol droid" make more sense?

And the periodic table never uses numbers like "Ro2" for Rogue Two.  It's always letters.

DON.MAC: Here is a hint, the Emperor shouldn't be in the middle of the of the 3rd row, let alone next to Boba Fett.

It would have made more sense to put the Emperor at the top of a column and then place Vader directly underneath.

It's the wrong bloody shape!

Your table is bad and you should feel bad.

It's called "peer review."  For SCIENCE!

You know when starwars nerds bash trekkies for coming up with a real-life Klingon vocabulary?  Now they can retort by pointing at this, especially the lulz over how its not even a good table.

I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking that this sucks a big floppy donkey dick. I'm a geek and find this utterly pointless and stupid. It does have one redeeming quality to it though. It does a great job in showing the glaring difference between a geek and a nerd.
 
2013-05-11 10:01:37 AM
I saw the link and thought that this would include stuff like: Carbonite, Cortosis, Durralloy, Tabana, etc. It might be a little geeky, but as a Star Wars fan I would find it interesting.

Then I saw it and realized the guy who created this is an idiot with too much time on his hands and spends too much money on drugs.

List of Star Wars characters that looks like a themed periodic table with meticulous detail for some reason.
 
2013-05-11 11:23:33 AM
Where are the noble gases, the heavy metals?

Just because you choose a well known structure like the episodes of Alice in Wonderland, Monopoly, the map of the states, or the periodic table doesn't mean squat without a complimentary structure in the content.

The periodic table predicts that the elements are grouped and have common properties, which may not be evident by just knowing their names or atomic weights, but instead knowing that every so often there is a repeat of properties and that the repetition shows a complex interplay of geometry, electrical and other forces and much more.

Also the first element, even in a parody, is always a single letter.

Apparently the author didn't get the memo of fun being outlawed on the internet.

Wow. Could have been so much better. Could have used better color coding for their alignment in the stories. Could have included important characters that are missing. Could have not done such a stupid "look at me and spread me around to all the nerd blogs" desperate design in the first place.

This is the sort of thing that makes me glad I can say I love some geeky things, but I will never self-identify as a nerd.

If the table structure doesn't work, then it doesn't work.  That's why the actual Periodic Table is so awesome - the structure actually means a lot.  If you're going to try to nerd you've got to do it well.

No shiat, if you need a table to track when your woman is having a period you're deeply screwed

Well, I don't think you will find any Star Wars nerds bashing Star Trek nerds for that seeing how the Ewoks had their own language as well.

Foxxinnia: Man, I am  really loathing nerd culture.


This has nothing to do with nerd culture... it has everything to do with a clueless somebody who wants ad revenue from nerds. I've seen a bunch of these name charts (arranged like the periodic table) over the last week or so. "Let's see... Nerds like Star Wars/Star Trek/(whatever), and they like science. Why don't I combine the two!"

Yeah, neat.

Strictly going down the first group, the table is ok.  I moved across and saw that Chewie and Bobba Fett were in the middle made me think, "Wow, they might actually be on to something" since Chewie isn't strictly a good guy, and Fett isn't evil (he is just a guy working for money).  R2D2 is to the right of C3PO, which makes perfect sense.  I could almost give emperor a pass since he didn't start evil.  What really killed it for me were the Rogue#s, ColorLeaders, and stormtroopers going across, which would suggest that somehow one rebel pilot (or stromtrooper) was somehow more or less evil than others.  Aunt Beru is more evil than Uncle Lars?  The author fell into the classic trap of making the table the same shape as the elemental table.

To fix the table, make it only 5 or 6 periods wide.  Down period 1 you have all of the Jedi and Lei.  Down period two you have all of the good supporting cast (Han, Akbar, etc.).  Down periods 3/4 you have all of the random rebels on one side and all of the random empire guys on the other since these people are all basically civies doing their job without any good or evil.  Group 5 has the mostly bad guys like upper level commanders, and Group 6 has the Sith.

From top to bottom sort from force level high to low, like the real table this will cause the ends (groups 1 and 6) to be much taller than the middle.
 
2013-05-11 05:56:22 PM
Wow, someone made a list of things!
 
2013-05-11 10:34:15 PM
OK, so on the chart Vader is V, and Luke is LU, but scroll down and now Vader is D?  aside from the others that were pointed out this chart is full of holes.. MAKE A NEW ONE!!!
