Roster standardization

Here's a project we may want to implement, comments welcome:


So, after going through the whole process to upgrade, I realized that our server doesn't use php5.0, which is what MediaWiki 1.7 and above require. So much for that. Whoops... done! --Wolf /talk page 18:55, 27 August 2007 (CDT)
There are no plans to upgrade MediaWiki just yet. DCody 14:26, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

Using "Discussion" Pages

InterWiki Links - New Feature

We now have a new feature on the wiki, which allows us to link more easily to both Wikipedia and Memory-Alpha articles.

It's quite simple. Using the "Gorn" article, as an example, here's the links you would use to link to the Gorn article on both Wikipedia and Memory-Alpha:

  • Wikipedia: [[wp:Gorn]]
  • Memory-Alpha: [[ma:Gorn]]

Now, keep in mind that the link would appear as such: "You can read more about the ma:Gorn on Memory-Alpha."

To remove the "ma" or "wp" prefix on the link, just mask it like you normally would, i.e.-

  • Wikipedia: [[wp:Gorn|Gorn]]
  • Memory-Alpha: [[ma:Gorn|Gorn]]

Links appear in the "light blue" coloring that external links on the wiki use, BUT they DO NOT have the icon that shows they external links.

Using Appropriate Formatting

One thing I want to point out is the "See Also" sub-section. Please use the Wikipedia format, looking like this:

==See Also==
* Item 1
* Item 2

For more on using proper formatting, see here: Wikipedia Manual of Style

Featured Articles & Article of the Month

In the process of being introduced. See 118Wiki:Featured Articles for details of nominating an article for featured status. It's hoped one Featured Article per month will appear on the Main Page as an "article of the month".
