Reference templates Edit

Hey there, nice to see that you are using the new reference templates. A couple of tips with the use is that you can include more than one title in the template by separating them with a |. Also, for titles with a disambiguation ("Defiant (episode)"), then just add the title (Defiant) into the {{ed}} template and it will display properly. Thanks (-: --Dr. John Smith 22:07, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Community consensus Edit

Hello, I wondered if you, as a consistent contributor to the site, would mind indicating your preference in a matter of debate on site policy. As recently discussed on the Talk:Double Blind page there is some disagreement over whether two-part stories should exist on two separate pages or as a singular merged entity. The more people willing to give an opinion the better as it would allow the community to make its preference known and resolve the issue – so a response on the linked page would be very useful. Thank you. --8of5 15:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC)


Trill starships Edit

Thanks for adding TDM 1-12 to the new category -- I wasn't aware of this one, I haven't caught up on my DS9! -- Captain MKB 19:06, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

War of the ProphetsEdit

I noticed you working on this one -- good work! Have you noticed the descriptions of the future uniforms? Seem to describe the "Relativity" uniforms from VOY except with Star Wars Imperial rank insignia -- funny stuff from the Reeves-Stevenses! -- Captain MKB 16:56, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Style and formatting Edit

Hola DS9 Forever, would you mind having a look at the style guide, as you will be able to see some of your formatting choices for media pages conflict with it. Thanks :) --8of5

HiEdit

Hey DS9, I noticed your recent edits and wanted to thank you. Those 'background lists' are one of my favorite works by the graphics department of DS9 and the DS9 TM. As a graphic artist myself, I can see how it was their 'fun time' to create such detailed graphics and I'm glad your making articles giving those minor character mentions proper recognition. -- Captain MKB 16:01, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

Hey, DS9, I was wondering if you could start using the specific publisher citations for images you upload instead of using the general 'imageparamount' tag, which is mostly for screencaps. For example, I'm correcting File:Narrators toolkit.jpg and File:Raiders, Renegades and Rogues.jpg for you right now. -- Captain MKB 18:20, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

DisambiguationsEdit

Can you please take a quick peek at this brief discussion? Thanks. -- sulfur 15:11, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

removing infoEdit

Hi, not sure why this happened, but when you edited the USS New York article you removed the category sort and a template addition i had made a couple days ago. not sure why, as these are both valid additions. please let me know if you have reason to contest any of my edits, as it is now i am restoring what was removed from the article. -- Captain MKB 23:19, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

PolicyEdit

Hey, I could use a hand in setting site policy. i'll admit, it's been more work than i can handle lately -- i'd appreciate if you could share your thoughts and participate. the latest discussion is at the forum pages, handling divergent continuities -- Captain MKB 09:58, February 17, 2011 (UTC)

HiEdit

Please dont use the "colon indent" special code in image uploads, it create a serious page display error for those using the monobook skin.

So don't put ":{{imageparamount}}" -- just go ahead and put "{{imageparamount}}" -- ok?

Thanks for taking the time to read this, let me know if there's anything I wasn't clear about. -- Captain MKB 13:50, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

HiEdit

Hi, I've noticed that every time you create a new article, you put the external links in a section called "Connections"

You might not be aware of this, but links to other websites must be placed in a section called "External link" or "External links". Could you please make this correction in articles you work on? -- Captain MKB 02:58, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

Ok Edit

Yeah thats fine, Was also wandering as well you wanted the Rank Page i did one but got deleted though.

Regalian fleaspider Edit

Sorry, I didn't realise that Regalian fleaspider was a new article from you. I got curious about the Orion emerald finch referenced there and thought I should expand upon it. I hope I didn't interfere in any ongoing work. -- BadCatMan 02:37, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

RPG referencesEdit

Please note that all references to RPG books should use the {{rpg}} template. The first parameter is the companies RPG line, such as {{rpg|Decipher RPG|Starships}} -- thanks -- sulfur 11:07, November 14, 2011 (UTC)

Copying Memory Alpha PagesEdit

Thanks for the tip. i just thought that it was okay to do it since this place is for everything star trek besides the TV show and Movies.--CC-1990 21:39, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

Disambigs and species pagesEdit

As per Memory Beta:Disambiguation, if there is a species page, it should always be found at the base name, and the disambiguation at "X (disambiguation)". Just FYI. -- sulfur (talk) 17:58, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

Also, when "moving" pages from one place to another, use the "move/rename" option. If you cannot move a page, ask an admin to do so. This preserves the history (and thus the credits for all those before who edited the page). Thanks. -- sulfur (talk) 18:03, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

Robinson citationEdit

In your new article Robinson (Jem'Hadar fighter), you have a citation to an RPG module titled "Tactics". What RPG line is this from? Was it part of a set? -- sulfur (talk) 01:09, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

FYI, I moved "Tactics" to "Tactics (RPG)", as there are a number of links to the concept of "tactics". Also, when citing an RPG, please use the name of the company (or RPG line) in the citation, such as "{{rpg|FASA RPG|RPG guide}}", or in this case, "{{rpg|WizKids|Tactics}}". Thanks! -- sulfur (talk) 15:57, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation pagesEdit

A couple of things:

  • When creating new disambiguation pages, please take the time to fix incoming links to those pages. The point of a disambiguation page is to direct people to the correct location, so all incoming links should be cleaned up when possible.
  • Intentional links to disambiguation pages should always be directed to a link that ends in "(disambiguation)". If that link does not exist, create it as a redirect to the proper disambiguation page. For example, if "Defiant" is the disambiguation page, then all intentional links to it should go to "Defiant (disambiguation)", which would, itself, be a redirect to "Defiant".

Thanks! -- sulfur (talk) 14:46, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

This. Again. -- sulfur (talk) 14:42, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

Mirror Kornelius YatesEdit

Would you mind telling me the mirror universe story in which Kornelius Yates is mentioned? I scoured all of the ones that I have and couldn't find any reference to his mirror universe counterpart. GusF (talk) 14:54, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Yates features in "Freedom Angst" from Seven Deadly Sins. Don't forget you can use the "what links here" option when you are editing a page. -- DS9 Forever (talk) 15:25, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Alpha Quadrant and planetsEdit

I've noticed you've created new planet articles with incorrect information and incomplete categorization, i was hoping i could persuade you to correct this practice.

A planet article should always be located in the category:planets no matter what other categorizations you use. could i ask that you stop omitting this category?

also, please do not assign a planet article to the category:alpha Quadrant planets category unless you have some evidence they are actually in the Alpha Quadrant? Talemstra and Nason Barta were never mentioned in the context of specifying what Quadrant they are in, I'd ask that you not presume incorrect information based on your own thoughts regarding what quadrant you might personally think they are in. if there's no source specifying this, then there is no cause for you to assign that information - Captain MKB 12:53, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
