And only Wizards of the Coast sourcebooks, approved by Lucas Licensing, are canon. Wizards of the Coast which isn't even a Lucasarts subsidiary has no authority on matters of canon the last time I checked. It is hyperbole.
It was a web series designed to expand on their sourcebooks and figure backgrounds, accept it it's canon

And the Malgus one is, believe me I fought him on that but it is, go find a video on it, Malgus is clearly talking about Revan.

Malgus isn't exactly a reliable source, though.

No quotes by individuals about any contemporary individuals is reliable. Not even people talking about people in the past is reliable either. The more neutral the source the better and people are never neutral.

People talking about their own skills can be colored terribly as well.

What's that Beni uses? Authorial intent?

"As a Jedi, Revan was a warrior who slaughtered armies. As a Sith, Revan was a teacher who trained a thousand dark apprentices."

It fits, since he did dominate worlds and slaughter armies.... Of course if you don't like that, there's Scourges crazy fanboying which is the source of many quotes too.

Wasn't that said by that crazy fanboy from the Revanite camp, the same group who said that Revan defeated Vitiate and took control of the Empire?

No more canonical than a blurb of any other advertisement for a piece of canonical material. The fact that is is linked to a canonical sourcebook doesn't make it canon, and given what it says, from a very much out of universe perspective, I highly doubt it was ever intended to be. Anyway whatever it is its hardly comparable to Nomi's accolades.

Either its the Foundry, or its Revan using the Foundry, I don't think I need to look it up.

EDIT: Anyway this is seriously off topic, I prefer to address accolades on a case by case basis, no one statement is the same and we can't make blanket dismissals based on the fact that some statements are clearly erroneous.

Hrmm...

On another note, since we're going with authorial intent:


"That the Sith pulled off such a monumental deception back when the Jedi were at their most powerful... Let's just say I'm keeping my eyes open for trouble."- Luke, Book of Sith

Ha ha! Yes!

*Shrug* They know what they do of him through study, it doesn't matter what their crazy conjecture as to his fate was.

We know he slaughtered armies though, since he apparently destroyed an army of star forge droids, on top of Sith, commandos and others.

"The Jedi's command of and connection to the Force was unlike anything Scourge had sensed in anyone else. Even though Revan was constantly drugged, it was impossible not to sense his strength."

"Revan's raw power in the Force bends Nyriss's Sith lightning back at her, utterly destroying the Sith Lord."

I can do this all day

The way I see it, if a character says something you should believe it unless you are given reason to doubt them. In most cases you are not, and in such cases what characters say can be taken as fact, and shouldn't be dismissed.
