Re: ILI galleries

Yes. I will update both galleries and post a message on the forum about the new templates. Rich (aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman/MCpt. Kadosh) 18:28, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

No worries. Always happy to help! Rich (aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman/MCpt. Kadosh) 20:09, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Using images as links

Hi there! I saw your proposed Embassy roster box. It looks nice! You might find it useful to employ the seldom-used link parameter for the character images such as:
[[Image: Turnercrew.jpg|120px|link=Turner, Toni]]

which gives you this: Turnercrew.jpg a linked image. Rich (aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman/MCpt. Kadosh) 13:36, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks - that's helpful to know! I appreciate the advice. :) Tallis rhul 23:45, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Regarding Temporary pages

Howdy, I saw you have been editing on a temporary work page. Have you considered just editing on the actual pages? That way you will be able to maintain a history and if a reversion has to be made, you won't lose too much of your work. Lance 02:13, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

You should never have to worry about editing the page too much for any reason. In fact, the more revisions allows for a history of how a page evolves and is quite useful when trying to figure out when different events occurred. On another note, a small one, try to avoid using the "this is a minor edit" checkbox. Realistically, it should only be used when dealing with spelling errors or minor formatting issues. I do try to read through most of the revisions and when an entire page is being changed, I can't think of how it could be a minor edit. Of course, this is minor in itself, but something to think about. If you have any questions, or need any help, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Happy contributing!

It can be a bit daunting at first, but you are doing a great job. No need for apologies, just trying to help out anyone at any chance I get. :) Lance 07:59, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

LOAs on roster page

Hi there! As I believe you and Aims are the ones most likely to keep the Vigilant's roster up to date, I just wanted to let you know that I've added the LOA listing for the Vigilant to the main roster page as is done with the other ships in the fleet. We want that information to be on the ship's main roster page so that it is transcluded into the larger Fleet Roster for easier personnel tracking purposes (since the Fleet Roster now serves in the same capacity as the UPDS for the general membership). By having the LOA info on the main roster page (and thus the Fleet Roster page), members can easily verify their LOA remains current. You can also help expand the functionality of this feature by noting when the LOA began under "current post". Cheers! –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman/MCpt. Kadosh 16:36, 2 December 2013 (CST)

I've readded the LOAs back onto the Fleet Roster for the Darwin and Vigilant. Is there reason why you do not wish for this information to be included as the other ships have done? As explained above, this allows members across the fleet to track their LOAs and possibly those of their friends as well as for team members and facilitators to easily verify the status of a member on one page. –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr.

New Roster Template

Hey Ed, I've created a new roster template that means we'll no longer have to make cropped images for the crew nav boxes or rosters! I've changed over those that were already using the rosters based on the Garuda's format (except for Apollo pending once I set up the roster template to be able to switch to STO-style pips).

It should make building and maintaining the rosters much easier as well. For instance, take a look at Atlantis Master Crew List. Of course whether other ships including yours and Raj's want to use this template is up to each ship.

You can also see what the Vigilant would look like here. Since you and Aims like Science to be in teal instead of blue, you can also easily toggle that as an option. –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman 13:43, 31 January 2014 (CST)

Canon uniforms

Oh don't worry I agree completely about there really being only three canon division colors! The black and violet colors personally also seem wrong to me. Starfleet Intelligence officers in my view should wear red (yes Pressman was an admiral, but I think also given the precedent of Strategic Operations wearing red, it's a suitable color). Black has never been seen, and I believe is more a fan conflation of Section 31 with Starfleet Intelligence, which really shouldn't be as sneaky and adversarial to other officers as I've often seen them simmed. Likewise, I feel diplomatic officers should wear either red or perhaps gold given we saw a gold wearing Ensign assisting Picard with the diplomatic function in Insurrection (although she very well could have been serving as a modern day yeoman, so gold makes sense).

Anyway this bothered me (along with the letter suffixes to ship names) for a while, but now I guess I can see how it makes identifying an officer's post a little easier and people seem to enjoy getting their own special color.

I still hate the Fleet Captain pip. If anything, it should look like Loan's pips when he was posing as deputy director. Fleet Captain isn't a flag officer rank and now commodore has been pushed up into this strange 1.5 stars position with an equally ugly pip that ruins the simplicity of the original pip system. But anyway... :) We need to nerd out on the podcast someday! –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman 10:53, 1 February 2014 (CST)

added security, engineering, tactical

I've added the additional headings, but as those are technically departments within the Operations Division, they are simply listed as "Engineering", "Tactical", etc. You can also call up just "Operations" instead of "Operations Division" by using "Ops".

All options for gold:

{{hr|Security & Tactical}}
Insignia Rank/Title Portrait Character Name Duty Post
Operations Division
Security & Tactical

I originally elected not to include them as I felt they cluttered up the roster, but I'm all about the options! :D –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman 16:43, 1 February 2014 (CST)

changed medical record number to serial number

You inspired me to finally register my character, haha. Template has been changed with link to the serial number registry. –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman 02:52, 7 May 2014 (CDT)

New ship icons

Hey there! I like the new icons you uploaded. Just letting you know I changed them to 73 x 55 like the others that way if they end up being used in one of the templates with the others or on the front page "browse" area, they'll line up:

The StarBase 118 Fleet
Ops-icon.gif StarBase 118 Ops Amity-icon.gif Amity Outpost Saber-icon.gif USS Arrow
Akira-icon1.gif USS Chin'toka Galaxy-icon1.gif USS Constitution-B Vesta-icon1.gif USS Excalibur-A
Sovereign-icon2.gif USS Gorkon Juneau-icon.gif USS Juneau Vesta-icon1.gif USS Thor

Fleet Roster LOAs

It's all good. I've reworded the introductory sentence on the Fleet Roster to remove references to LOAs and "active members" to make it more accurate. :) –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman 18:37, 1 June 2014 (CDT)

Quick question about your userpage character table

Would it work with only 2 characters? I like your design much better than the one I have, so I wanted to adopt it. I just don't have nearly the menagerie of characters you do. Thanks in advance. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 04:02, 6 June 2014 (CDT)

Got it covered. I think. I just don't know how to work crop. So yeah. Sky Blake (talk) 04:33, 6 June 2014 (CDT)

Budding Species

I would leave the pic that is there, there until you have come up with something to show me. Then if it fits the idea and basic description of the species I will most likely approve of it as I have to admit that was one of those pics I just felt was not good enough. It was better than nothing but still lacking I felt... Canreb (talk) 08:10, 13 April 2015 (CDT)

Looking at your temp work page I saw the pic that you have added. I like it. It looks a little like a Suliban but with a few minor changes. If this is the pic that you have decided to go with let me know and just give me a small explanation of why you think this is what they look like. Just looking to get a feel for your interpretation of them before I approve the change of pic. Canreb (talk) 08:40, 25 May 2015 (CDT)

Took a second look and reread the data on the temp work page. Go ahead and change the pic on the species page on the wiki. Canreb (talk) 09:06, 26 May 2015 (CDT)

Quick question about a page you're working on

I noticed that [[Andorian/Culture_and_Society]] was orphaned, and looked to be an older version of the page linked to the nav. Just wanted to know what your plans were regarding this page? Ceciri (talk) 05:30, 7 June 2015 (CDT)

Orphaned Page

Howdy! I saw that this page was orphaned. Are you planning on doing something with it soon? Or can I delete it? Cheers, Ashley Roy (talk) 21:03, 6 July 2015 (CDT)

You got it. Cheers, Ashley Roy (talk) 21:06, 7 July 2015 (CDT)
