Cyfa, i want to thank you for your new articles in the database regarding current topics like new releases and reference books as well. I feel that the formatting and linkages in your articles have been beneficial for the database, and have given us a lot of avenues to cross-reference topics. Thanks for generating so much new content without requiring a lot of counseling regarding the use of the database, it really is one of the things that makes this database great in that we have strong users like you generating content. -- Captain MKB 21:53, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
- Thank you, Captain MKB, that means a lot. It's really thoughtful of you to mention it, and very encouraging, too. I try hard to adhere to the guidelines, and use templates & featured articles for assistance, but inevitably, some mistakes are made - such is the folly of being human! I'll try and keep up the good work.
- Thanks again. -- Cyfa (talk) 12:44, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
User CC-1990 imagesEdit
- Hi TJV (I hope you don't mind me shortening your name?). As a rule, no, we shouldn't use original images from websites that haven't come from a Star Trek episode, film, book or other licensed source. Where the image is clearly (and noted to be) from a licensed source, I guess it's OK to use it as it belongs to CBS/Paramount (or whoever) as long as we acknowledge the original episode/film/book etc. In this instance, the SI website is NOT a licensed source, but some of the images do appear to be from episodes. I would imagine that as long as the image is cited to the original episode, it would be OK to use it here. -- Cyfa (talk) 19:14, February 1, 2013 (UTC)
