I have a question here. Why does the JTAS Online articles are listed as non-canon even though it is a publication of SJGames? Rycharde 05:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

All of the magazine articles (original JTAS, Challenge, JTAS online) are (or should be non-canon). While they are published by the official publisher, the articles have not gone through the canon vetting process (i.e. reviewed and approved by Marc Miller). What makes this confusing is that several articles published in JTAS, Challenge, or JTAS Online have later been republished in official canon books.
The line between canon and not-canon is never really and entirely clear. And is, to a large extent, a false distinction. As the Canon article states, the only people for whom the distinction matters is the writers of new canon material. Tjoneslo 12:59, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha. Thank you for your explanation. Rycharde 15:54, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
