Starfleet Rank Index: Marines

Hi there! I saw that you redirected Starfleet Rank Index: Marines to Starfleet Marine Ranks and Comparisons. The former is part of our Academy Library series of Starfleet Rank Index, and "official" pages like this take precedence over other pages. As such, I've reverted your change.

If you'd like, you're more than welcome to move the table from Starfleet Marine Ranks and Comparisons to the bottom of the Starfleet Rank Index: Marines page, if you think it makes it easier to understand! --Wolf /talk page 08:42, 15 November 2011 (CST)

Sounds good. TZhou 23:40, 15 November 2011 (CST)

ILI Gallery

Hey - are we putting those coded links into the ILI gallery instead of adding links back to species pages from every picture? Tallis rhul 18:22, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Yes. I will update both galleries. Rich (aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman/MCpt. Kadosh) 18:27, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Let me know if you want any help! Might have to brand you as my wiki guru from now on as well! Tallis rhul 19:11, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
No worries. Always happy to help! Rich (aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman/MCpt. Kadosh) 20:09, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi... I got to tell you I love the graphics work you have been doing for the ILI Gallery. Each time you make a change it keeps getting better and better... it looks real professional and futuristic... THANK YOU!!! Canreb (talk) 07:49, 23 February 2014 (CST)

An idea.... can you create 2 new pages for the ILI... One for the Gamma Quadrant species and one for the Delta Quadrant. Also could you make them standout as Gamma and Delta... personalize them in some way so that when you go to their page the first thing you see makes it obvious your looking at a different quadrant of space... The 3 need to be interconnected with links... and should have the SDC nav template off to the side with all 3 pages on it... its one of those things I have been meaning to get around to eventually but your command of wiki coding is far superior to mine.... The updates and changes you have made so far are AMAZING... Canreb (talk) 08:20, 23 February 2014 (CST)

What can I say... you hit it out of the park again... Quadrant pages look great. Only question. Is it possible to put the SDC circle LOGO on the left of the SDC template? The one you put on its side and updated to match the rest of the page. That way it will stand out and hopefully be more easily recognized as a nav window. Just to eliminate any confusion. Canreb (talk) 11:27, 24 February 2014 (CST)

Hello Rich... as always I love the look of the replacement Non-Canon mini banner you used to replace the dull one I had... however I think you need to tweak it as it needs to be dropped about half an inch so that you can see it right... right now it blends into the user controls at the top of the page. Canreb (talk) 16:49, 28 February 2014 (CST)

I use internet explorer and with it, it is right at the very top of the page. Canreb (talk) 16:59, 28 February 2014 (CST)

Yes it is lower, about half way to where it should be. Canreb (talk) 17:09, 28 February 2014 (CST)

Almost bang on... just a tiny bit more and it will be perfect. Canreb (talk) 17:15, 28 February 2014 (CST)

In that case leave it... it works and I can use it and see it with out it covering anything important. Canreb (talk) 17:21, 28 February 2014 (CST)

Ok... I have started to alter the pics to the 250px size you told me to use... eventually they will all get corrected. Thanks for letting me know what the best size is. Uniformity does make the pages look better. Canreb (talk) 10:54, 1 March 2014 (CST)

Well I was altering the pics to 250px starting at Z and when I was doing it for the Vorgon I saw the Starfleet warning I put in. Look at the page and let me know if you can make a official looking warning banner that would look better on the page. Canreb (talk) 11:11, 1 March 2014 (CST)

WOW!!!! That warning banner looks AWSOME!!!! Thanks Rich. It is just perfect. Canreb (talk) 16:09, 1 March 2014 (CST)

Rich when you click on the SDC part of the Warning Template could it take them to this page? New Species Data to Be Added as this page has a section on it for players to add and report new data. Thanks. Canreb (talk) 16:16, 1 March 2014 (CST)

ENJOY your vacation Rich. Just wanted to ask if you could take a look at the banner we place at the bottom of each species wiki page. The SDC one. It is very bland and dull. I was wondering if you could spice it up, do that magic thing you do so well and turn it into something AMAZING!!! Maybe even with the SDC logo off to one side?? Canreb (talk) 08:19, 7 March 2014 (CST)

Well I asked for spiced up and again you have knocked it out of the park. The new SDC template looks AMAZING!!! Thanks!! Canreb (talk) 06:18, 17 March 2014 (CDT)

Age Template

Notes/Question

Heya Rich. I'm holding off because we just did an update, but the Age template has left me confused. I don't want to start changing anything without checking in with you first to find out what you have intended for that template. DCody (talk) 08:44, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

  • LOL... no worries. I didn't want to touch anything, since it might be a work-in-progress. It's all good! DCody (talk) 08:51, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Makes sense to me! Great work! DCody (talk) 08:22, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Re: Revamped front page

Sure, looks nice. However, don't want to do it until we make all those icons in the fleet box look uniform.

Re: upload text. --Wolf /talk page 06:13, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

New change looks fine. I tried upping the size of the font to see if we could fill up some of that empty space. We might play around with that a little. Maybe the first paragraph is larger or something? --Wolf /talk page 04:05, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Mmm... not sure about that. --Wolf /talk page 05:02, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Of the two, I prefer the image on top, but don't really like either when they're centered. --Wolf /talk page 04:33, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Don't like all the empty space under the intro text. Need to display it another way or increase the text size or something. --Wolf /talk page 20:14, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Version 2

I would increase the font size of the ship names. Otherwise, looks fine. But what happens when we add another ship? :) --Wolf /talk page 17:16, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Formatting on Richards, Alexander

Think I may have messed up the formatting on my characters main page and I can't seem to pin down a fix. I have a feeling my abuse of the
HTML tag might be the problem. Ens Alexander Richards 15:47, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Was hoping to have the professional timeline centered and the awards without leaving an open center tag in cae I add something like a sim history/short stories section to the main page Ens Alexander Richards 19:07, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Ta Very much Rich :) Ens Alexander Richards 19:45, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Formatting on Richards Alexander/Family

I went to red as the TOC to the page but came across a problem. Upon clicking hide, it shrinks the Richards side Nav and not the TOC. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this? Ens Alexander Richards 11:20, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Fixed of my own accord. used __TOC__ above the Nav template. Ens Alexander Richards 12:13, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Azul needs help with images

Hey... think I got it now... I was deleting links to remove mistake pages...

Rigt now I'm trying to sort how to import pics.

Any advice?


Azul/Steve

New Bio

No problem Rich.

It's all good.

New Mercury member

Hi Rich I'm working on a bio for the new science officer on the ship and she has not gotten her username and password just yet. She will get back with me about it. I'm not sure how to add her to the crew template.

Question about updating new character page?

Hi there! I'm honestly not sure if I'm posting in the right place or not--my apologies if not!

I was recently added to the crew of the Mercury, and directed to work on completing my character's wiki page at some point. I'm a bit new at the wiki here, and am having problems adding an image for my character, as well as some bits of information. I've been trying to learn how to edit my page on my own, and worried that I've made some mistakes while trying to add a picture. Again, my apologies if I have--I would love any advice or assistance! Sorry to be any trouble!

re:Hey, no NPC kidnapping!

lol! Sorry! I had Loupaz over on the Challenger (her most memorable sim there was when she told Tobias Walker that the Acting Chief of Security/Tactical's office had been floaded in fire foam when the Challenger was being overrun by malfunctions), the Ronin and the Mercury while I was there, and I realized that I neglected to bring her over to the Embassy (and then to the Avandar) when I left.

I kinda need her for the Avandar's current mission - our previous power failure was the cause for a lot of drama . . . and Loupaz kinda fits the job of being annoyed when it suddenly "fixes itself". ;D

Sav's insignia

How about this for Sav's civilian insignia? DS9style-blank silver.png

Yeah, call me a keen bean, I've been at the roster already. ;) And thanks for the welcome, it's good to be back.

Memory Book Page

Yes, if you would please delete the memory book that would be great. I also have some pictures uploaded a long time ago that I'd like to have deleted/removed as well. Thank you for your help! ~~Alana

Vash's Roster Image

Cheers for that, I was having a bit of a nightmare with the sizing and didn't notice you'd corrected it until I'd had two more attempts, haha. Reverted to yours now so it should be fixed!

One question I did have... on my profile, the "Biographical Data" bar seems to have gone above the index box, and I can't work out why, or how to get it back down underneath again like everyone elses! Any ideas? Vash Solinari (talk) 14:20, 12 September 2013 (CDT)

Thanks! Again! Hehe. Vash Solinari (talk) 15:15, 12 September 2013 (CDT)

Re: Team badge

Well . . . I'm not allowed back for several months, apparently, so if that's the case, then I'm really not actually a team member. It was my understanding that the badge was for team members. The team page says I'm inactive, but I'm very well up and about and quite happy to to give individual feedback, so there's really no point of my being listed under "inactive".

Also: You guys should really consider adding "Must be a full time simmer" to requirements for joining. :/

Anyway, thank you for your concern, Rich. It is appreciated. :) - Sky Blake (talk) 19:47, 30 September 2013 (CDT)

There is no "Must be a full time simmer" requirement for joining but there is a general rule that IC comes first for contributions to the fleet. I'm going to contact you directly because this isn't the only OOC group you've volunteered for and this is rather a public place for a discussion on the matter - I'll make sure to copy in your CO. Diego Herrera (talk) 17:03, 13 October 2013 (CDT)

Re: LOAs on Roster Page

Not a problem. If it makes you feel any better, the LOAs were listed on the Crew History page.

We actually have them on our Google Docs version of the roster - I'll chase that up. :D Sky Blake (talk) 16:48, 10 December 2013 (CST)

Re: JamesAuroraNav

Right, sorry. Still learning the formatting, and should've caught that. Oops. Thanks for fixing it. I'm still new to it.

Thank you!

Seriously. Thank you. Thank you for keeping the Garuda's part of the Face List updated. You have no idea how helpful it is to me. Some parts of the FL haven't been updated since mid-2013. The Mercury/Garuda's is always spot-on. Thank you so much. ~ Sky Blake (talk) 00:33, 6 January 2014 (CST)

Roster Template

Hello Rich. Alex Richards here, had a go at using your template for the rosters for Ops (on my Sandbox) but don't think i got it quite right. Mind taking a look for me? Here 15:08, 9 January 2014 (CST)

Unfortunately not. Would really appreciate the help :) 15:13, 9 January 2014 (CST)
Scratch that! Just read up on how to do it on the internet with my editing program :) 15:27, 9 January 2014 (CST)
I think I've got it. If not i'll had it over to you and your superior image editing software :) Lieutenant Alexander Richards 16:03, 9 January 2014 (CST)
Cheers for the help again Rich. If I'm going to be putting effort into the wiki/my character/the ship it might be time I invest in a decent image editing program. Lieutenant Alexander Richards 16:30, 9 January 2014 (CST)

2collars

It's definitely an option! The only problem is that (since the original purpose to of the 2collars for me is to extend to fill to each side of the template) we'd have to adjust character images in the template accordingly. Not necessarily a problem, but I have a habit of being picky. :P

Speaking of which, I've discovered that 289px is a decent size for an image. XD

Wait, scratch that. I'm confusing myself. DX My only concern is that it'd be a bit complicated for those new to the wiki.
I'll get onto creating those other colours for the blanks. :D Sky Blake (talk) 22:33, 10 January 2014 (CST)
Done. Sky Blake (talk) 23:02, 10 January 2014 (CST)
I think it should be recommended to have images 240px and over to use the template. Thoughts? Sky Blake (talk) 00:06, 11 January 2014 (CST)
Can we rename them? Sky Blake (talk) 00:10, 11 January 2014 (CST)
I can convert them into jpgs if you'd like? Sky Blake (talk) 00:14, 11 January 2014 (CST)
M01-2Lt-Green.jpg Rename to M1-2ndLieutenant-Green.jpg? Sky Blake (talk) 00:24, 11 January 2014 (CST)
I just finished having dinner! XD All good! I think it's a lot easier, actually. There's not as many Marines in the fleet, and if they need any help, we're here. :D Sky Blake (talk) 01:24, 11 January 2014 (CST)

Pip Template

Are you standardizing the pips for the fleet Rich? Been an idea milling around in my head for a while. Lieutenant Alexander Richards 16:26, 28 January 2014 (CST)

Anything that makes that easier is a bonus in my book. I've lost count of the amount of nifty templates you've added now such as the age one Lieutenant Alexander Richards 16:46, 28 January 2014 (CST)

Crew Template.

Awesome job as always Rich. Thanks :) Lieutenant Alexander Richards 16:04, 29 January 2014 (CST)

Agree, thanks a lot for the explanation, can it stay on my talk page for a reference - only if something changes make a change there. Wanda DyAmone (talk) 19:44, 29 January 2014 (CST)

Hi! Lovely job on the crew roster. I will probably switch over to using it relatively soon but bear with me while I have a look at it and get my head around updates etc.

Also, re: teal for science, the reason I use it is because it's canon. Medical and science have never been different colours on screen - Science was blue in season 2 of TNG, at which point Medical was also blue! Diego Herrera (talk) 08:42, 1 February 2014 (CST)

Hey - is there any way you can add Security and Engineering to the divisions? Diego Herrera (talk) 16:23, 1 February 2014 (CST)

Thank you, Sir, you're a gent! Diego Herrera (talk) 02:26, 2 February 2014 (CST)

Just got the chance to play with the roster and nav templates for crew. Might take me a while to get used to fine tuning the images using the size options but otherwise is incredibly easy to use. Managed to get the Gemini roster and Crew nav done in 30 minutes. Or at least, have them in a state where it just requires some touching up :) Lieutenant Alexander Richards 06:21, 2 February 2014 (CST)

Hey Rich, great work on the roster templates! Is there one that works for NPC rosters, or is it just Senior Staff at the moment? Whale (talk) 11:00, 2 February 2014 (CST)

Hey, Rich. I was doing a bit of experimenting with my sandbox for the Excalibur NPC crew template, and don't seem to be able to make it show up alongside the nav bar. Is it because I'd need to resize the Excalibur nav bar in order to make it show up properly? Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 14:09, 3 March 2014 (CST)

Reply regarding my above comment: I feel like a derp. The problem is the browser window size makes the nav bar appear above the actual roster listing. I've never felt like this much of a derp before. Thanks for the nudge.Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 21:28, 7 March 2014 (CST)

User Page

Hey, Rich. I was inspired by your user page, and I was wondering what exactly you used to make it how you did. I want to compose a similar page, but don't have nearly the expertise you do. So far all mine has on it is a redirect to Chythar Skyfire's page. Would be happy to discuss in greater detail what I'm looking to do. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 02:01, 9 February 2014 (CST)

Rounded Corners

Hey thanks! Glad you like it. :D Wait till you see what I am doing with them. :P - Greir Reinard (talk) 15:45, 28 February 2014 (CST)

Template:Header

Hello Rich, I was wondering if there was a way to make it so the width of the header could be varied? I'm trying to adopt them for my character page, however at present they cause conflict with my sidebar causing them to break bellow it creating quite a bit of whitespace! the two ways I can think of would be to create a new parameter for it (with maybe a bit of logic so it catches null input and shoves in the default of 100%) or maybe include a header specific class, so it can be manually overridden in the page itself (i.e {| border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 width=100% class="headerTableOveride" then just write the class itself in style tags somewhere in the page. ).

It would be really great if I could do this, as they really do look great and are so much easier to deal with than using straight HTML for it! I'd also be more than happy to write the fix in myself if you like. Lt. Commander James (talk) 12:38, 3 March 2014 (CST)

Thanks! It works wonderfully now, and it really does look great. Lt. Commander James (talk) 16:50, 3 March 2014 (CST)

LOAs on Face List

That's a smart idea. I wish I thought of that!

My only concern is that it may make it a little more difficult in trying to keep it up to date with the ship rosters. We may have to start looking at a way to make it easier to update... :/ Sky Blake (talk) 03:01, 5 March 2014 (CST)

Undoing category edits.

Sorry Rich. When i was creating that subcategory system, I was using the following http://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php?title=Complex_Character_Pages and completely misread what it was suggesting be done. - Entirely my bad. Lieutenant Alexander Richards (talk) 17:22, 5 April 2014 (CDT)

Garuda Deck Layout

Is there a better way of doing this, do you think? I didn't even notice that there were individual saucer/stardrive subpages, and I can see edits getting applied to only the main page, or people missing the subpages when they're looking things up for sims. More obvious links? A different page arrangement? I'm not quite sure. --Quinn /talk page 05:47, 6 April 2014 (CDT)

Counseling

Hrm. I popped counselling/psychology under the Medical Academy, because nursing was there. As far as my experiences go, nursing degrees (along with the other allied health professional degrees) are usually offered by a university's Health and Life Sciences faculty, not a medical school -- I assumed that meant Starfleet Medical Academy was responsible for all health professionals. If not, nursing should probably be shifted to the Science department as well. --Quinn /talk page 12:05, 7 April 2014 (CDT)

2collar Flag flip

I just realized that we don't have a flag officer flip.

09-RearAdmiral-Red.jpg 00-Blank-Red-Flip.jpg

It looks . . . wrong. Should I try and make flag flips? I know we haven't had any flag officers decide to use the 2collar template, but you know how I am . . .

It still looks really wrong. Sky Blake (talk) 23:08, 14 April 2014 (CDT)

Thank you! XD Sky Blake (talk) 00:36, 15 April 2014 (CDT)

References

Hey, Rich. I was wondering if you could point me at something that better explains how to use the thingie because the help section of the editor doesn't actually tell me anything. Copy/pasting the code and trying to use it doesn't work either, so if you could help me out that would be fantastic. Thanks. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 18:06, 25 April 2014 (CDT)

Template:NC

Rich, do you see any technical issues with creating a template called, say, Template:M118 and changing Template:NC to a re-direct? If we're going away from "non-canon", we don't want to keep putting using a template called "NC", right? Happy to do the updates, just let me know if it works / causes problems. Ben Livingston (talk) 07:41, 26 April 2014 (CDT)

Holy cow, you're fast! I like the idea of categorizing sim archives under a "sim archive" category and medical records under a similar one. Great idea. Something I'm thinking of for M118 is having a "records" section ... this type of medical record will be one of the first things I add! Ben Livingston (talk) 10:16, 26 April 2014 (CDT)

Color Palate

Rich,

In the new color scheme you're using, are you picking from a pre-defined color palate, or just choosing a color that goes well with what's already there? (I ask because at some point, I think we'll want to add new categories to Memory 118, and it got me thinking.) Ben Livingston (talk) 05:54, 28 April 2014 (CDT)
