The Fighter Guide

ILI

I can't edit the ILI list... Aenar are missing from the list, I've made a basic page for them

Thanks, I'll bear that in mind, although all I personaly have borrowed from Memory Alpha so far is the Aenar picture. - Jay 14:48, 13 Aug 2005 (CDT)

I did notice that and corrected as quickly as humanely possible - Jay 14:50, 13 Aug 2005 (CDT)

User Page

Sorry about that - will be keeping Pietmaximoff then. It didn't strike me until after I made the new UserName that I didn't really need it anyway. --Lt Pietro Maximoff 07:16, 16 Aug 2005 (CDT)

Training Area

Admiral, the tutorials section and the mission section should be separate, don't you think? Could we have a mission section too? (Varaan)

Parker and I had written up two new missions, long ago when we were talking about "spring cleaning" the missions area. We each had one run through and then the entire project got shelved. (Varaan)

Guide to USS Wallace

I had thought about that, but we probably need to get the DS17 guide in a respectable condition first... - Jay 17:14, 21 Aug 2005 (CDT)

Wallace menu

Would you mind if I changed the pic, that's probably my least favourite of all the images on ST:Australia... - Jay 10:20, 9 February 2006 (CST)

How does that look? I actually have the full version of this pic as my background on my PC :) - Jay 04:48, 11 February 2006 (CST)

I had to upload the image myself as it hadn't been done yet. The background is white, not transparent and the image is a jpg as I got a very blocky pic as a gif. - Jay 05:38, 14 February 2006 (CST)

Articles for deletion

I've added the delete template to 3 pages, 2 of them are part of my characters pages as I'm restructuring it and the other is one of the pages which I moved yesterday which you missed when you deleted the rest of the old Challenger NPC pages. Could you delete them please as I haven't got the capability to do it myself. Thanks - Jay 17:29, 18 February 2006 (CST)

Category:Articles to be Deleted; Now contains 2 articles which were wrongly named and 2 articles relating to my character which I've rewritten as subpages to my userpage and wish to move into the place of the old article. I'll move my sub-pages accross but I need the current pages deleted before I can do so. Could you please do this for me. Thanks - Jay 09:18, 13 March 2006 (CST)

:) Like the new link on your user page. Thanks for that. - Jay 02:59, 14 March 2006 (CST)

Saber Class

I was able to find some schematics from Daystrom that fit the mold. What do you think of the Arrow's motto?

Sweet! I didn't think that there was a deck layout for the starbase!

Intra-page linking

Admiral, I know it's possible to link to an outside web page, and it's possible to link to an internal wiki page, AND it's possible to link to an item/article within a wiki page by using the page name, a "#" and the article name. BUT, is it possible to link to a separate item on the same page (like further down the page, or to eliminate "see above" type stuff)? Varaan 23:06, 1 July 2006 (CDT)

Okay. Say you've got a long page and in a paragraph you're writing you like to reference something that you're going to cover in it's own entry later on in the same page. If it was on another page you could link to it using [[Page Name#Article Name]]. But can you do it if the stuff you'd like to link to is on the SAME page as where you'd like to place the link? -Varaan 23:11, 1 July 2006 (CDT)
Sure, when I tried it the stupid thing didn't work. Then you go and do it and it works fine. Make me feel inferior why dontcha! :) -Varaan 23:14, 1 July 2006 (CDT)

Re:Vulcans on Memory-Alpha

My only concern was that it would be visible enough for people to not get confused as to where to go for canon info. If it's small and off to the side...they might miss it. Though I guess the links in the text could help too. Some of those links (though they all say "Memory Alpha") actually link to different pages on MA depending on the topic my page is covering, though. Let's see what I can do. -Varaan 09:45, 2 July 2006 (CDT)

Re: Species

What? I missed something? Absurd! Ya, I think that they should probably be listed properly...for my sanity if not for any other reason. Of course, I thought they were complete. I must be tired or something. -Varaan 22:55, 2 July 2006 (CDT)

Nope, that's exactly how I want it. I hate having the side menus BESIDE each other. They should be stacked so that the information data that the person is there to read is available. That works out fine, sir. Thanks. -Varaan 15:06, 3 July 2006 (CDT)

Redirects to MA

They aren't working properly. I only get the redirect text and thus have to click the link to go to the site so there may as well be a brief blurb with a link - Lt.JG Salak; Chief Engineer, USS Independence 10:15, 8 July 2006 (CDT)

Thanks :) - Lt.JG Salak; Chief Engineer, USS Independence 06:36, 10 July 2006 (CDT)

Deletion (again)

There is a photo of Utopia Planetia marked for deletion and also Cody, David as the characters bio page was started again at Cody, David S. which in turn has been moved to Cody, David Scott. - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 12:37, 20 September 2006 (CDT)

re:sysop

I'll try not to... Thanks :) - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 19:56, 1 November 2006 (CST)

Server Time

Is it just me or is it running 12 hours fast? - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 23:04, 3 November 2006 (CST)

Yeah, but I've had to tell it to set at -12 hours to be showing GMT, which is UTC. The default time seems to be GMT+12 - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 10:12, 4 November 2006 (CST)
Ok, it seems fine now... Thanks - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 13:00, 4 November 2006 (CST)

THI & the Director

Would it be safe to say, then, that THI is an organization? I thought it was an actual Institute, which is why I classed them as a university. And I thought that SCEPTRE and the THI was associated. My bad. -Varaan 07:19, 28 November 2006 (CST)


Any decision re:Connie template yet? Just curious if you'd got a reply and come to an agreement or decision? - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 11:45, 11 December 2006 (CST)

Characters

Okay, I think that I've finally categorized all the "beings" on the wiki. Now's the time to do everything else. :) -Varaan 13:00, 11 December 2006 (CST)

Uniformity

I'd left it for a while but I've just put the Connie nav template back in line with the rest of the fleet. I hadn't heard anything for a while and thus don't know if Rocar and yourself have agreed anything on this. - Lt.JG SalakUSS RoninTalk 21:41, 4 January 2007 (CST)

in all seriousness...

Geez, I wish that some people could be more serious with their time here. Two examples - K'Bob. And the second one I'm not sure if we should delete or what - Loner.
-Varaan 09:59, 26 February 2007 (CST)

A First?

Is that the first time an Admins character page has been vandalised? Just reverted a partial blanking of Salak and blocked the user who did it, that was his only edit. Part of me wants to protect the page but that would be against the general ideals of a wiki, surely? - JayTalk 06:02, 6 July 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, that's what I thought. - JayTalk 04:47, 7 July 2007 (CDT)

New Races

Hello. I changed those races to reflect the following categories like you asked me to. While I did add a couple of them to the FTU listing, most of them were already their but with no information. I just tried to flesh them out into useable races with a description and a few details.

  • Category:Non-Reviewed Species
  • Category:Non-Canon Species
  • What about races listed in any of the Star Trek novels. How should they be added to the Wikki list for races.
  • I just read the description of the Non-Canon Species - As I understand that includes all races listed in novels.
  • Also I have been doing some work at adding a few things to a few locations on the Wikki. These being the USS Triumphant Master Crew List, DS17 station layout, FTU member races. I have been doing these additions with the hopes that they will add to the playability of the site and be useful to others. Was I in error to do this??

Zhal

Ok, I did skim it, but as I am having PC problems, I just did the page as quick as I could. :P Sorry aboyt that, FAdm Wolf.

Mission Archives for Prior / Older Ships

I remember you told me you held onto the early sims. If you want to, we could reconstitute groups for archival only. DCody 18:51, 22 September 2007 (CDT)

Vandal

I've been checking periodically all day expecting them to come back... No ways beyond that currently being done to stop them are there? Does seem to be a bot given the 4 similar accounts doing the same thing in less than 48 hours. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 19:32, 1 October 2007 (CDT)

Not really worried, just a bit annoyed by the vandalism. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 08:46, 2 October 2007 (CDT)

Re:Trek Crash Course

Absolutely. Should I break the "third wall", as in should I start OOC and introduce them to the IC world of Trek? Or try to stay IC and have it be more like a really simple history lesson? -Varaan 07:54, 9 October 2007 (CDT)

Good Wiki Bio

I didn't receive the message that you wanted to use the Lily bio as an example (with the one caveat) until today, though I've been informed about all other discussions on any page I've created.... Anyway, if you'd still like to use the page as an example, I've updated it with the information you requested, so feel free. -Onewhoisseveral 18:19, 16 December 2007 (CST)

Archiving?

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this-

Some of the very old AOL chat sims I did manage to save are on 3.5 or 5.25 discs (those that have survived through the many moves) that I don't have a drive for anymore :oP, but it was in reference to Egroups, since we were there before Yahoo took it over. *chuckles* I have some of our first stuff... not all of it (that computer bit it when we went to Egroups).

Any case, I don't know if you saved the posts from the mid 90s in our transition from chat to Egroups (prior to it becoming YGroups), but if you did, while it may be somewhat of a slow process, we could repost the older sim posts into a archival only YGroups. It would just take a bit of time DCody 03:03, 28 December 2007 (CST)

I'd love to read some of those old sims if you can rescue them and put them somewhere. Good luck with this mini-project.

Rocar 07:25, 30 December 2007 (CST)

I know the feeling. I hope all my old floppies haven't corrupted. I'd say it's your call if you want to set somthing up and transpo the Ranger stuff into an archival YGroups. Brian might love seeing some of that- DCody 16:11, 1 January 2008 (CST)

Links

  • nods* I'll remember not to stick spaces between. DCody 15:30, 6 January 2008 (CST)

Intrepid class schematics

I'm not sure what I'm thinking, but I understand what Canreb is after. There's approximately 15 articles on different ship areas on the Intrepid Class, which is why I'm leaning toward something in the neighborhood of an Intrepid-Class schematics nav panel so the Eagle's ship nav template doesn't have to carry all that. We usually put in a link on a given ship nav, not 15 of 'em! -lol DCody 00:25, 11 January 2008 (CST)

StarFleet vs Starfleet

Not that this is a big deal, but what's with your obsession with capitalizing the "f" in Starfleet, when in canon it is spelled with a lowercase "f". Don't believe me? Check out any and all canon material including Memory Alpha and Wikipedia. :) -Varaan 17:45, 12 January 2008 (CST)

To be honest, I prefer a small F myself as in my opinion, the capital F in the middle is ugly... Just my 2p - Lt.JG SalakTalk 10:51, 13 January 2008 (CST)
Heehee, fair enough. :) - Lt.JG SalakTalk 12:29, 13 January 2008 (CST)

Boiler plates

On Wikipedia, there's a way of making templates which hide sections, e.g. wp:Template:Template group, wp:Wikipedia:NavFrame. Would it be possible to do such with this wiki with a view to combining all the fleet boilers (Template:118Fleet, Template:118FleetTrain, Template:118LoD, Template:118Inactive & any reworking of Template:118Attached) into one, such that you could open whichever bit you like and not have to go to the ship histories page to get to a ship which isn't in the same category? My knowledge of coding is poor at best and I know nothing really about Javascript, I struggle enough with html tbh. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 14:19, 13 January 2008 (CST)

Um, okay. I tried briefly on Sunday but the edit, view, discuss, show/hide buttons didn't even show up, let alone work, so there is some coding missing. I'll look into it more when I've time but could take a while to work out what I need to copy across. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 05:38, 15 January 2008 (CST)
Reading all this code is giving me a headache, lol. Are we using Version 1.6? I'm guessing cos I've used <noinclude> on templates on here before, but can't find a version number on the main page, etc... - Lt.JG SalakTalk 09:20, 15 January 2008 (CST)
Found it under the Special pages. 1.10.0. Just stray thought but the math function has never worked on here has it? Can't think of how we'd use it hough, just it pops up in the sandbox. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 09:26, 15 January 2008 (CST)
Just stumbled upon http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Collapsing. The pages I've just added are titled exactly as on wikipedia, so not sure why it still isn't working. Not given up yet, might leave it for today though. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 10:30, 15 January 2008 (CST)

118Attached

Only cos I started adding Runabouts for completeness and they have runabouts attached to them. Can't say I'm happy with it myself either... - Lt.JG SalakTalk 05:35, 15 January 2008 (CST)

Embassy Duronis II

Admiral, I've been working on some of the Embassy pages adding pictures, and filling in some of the stubs from the information I have in the old sims I have from my Embassy days. Hope that is alright. Toni 15:47, 6 February 2008 (CST)Toni

Main Page image #9

Looking stylish :D - Lt. SalakTalk 21:15, 23 February 2008 (CST)

Betazed Noble House Category

I plan to at least add one more (the 2nd House) to this category. I know a few other players have characters that belong to houses as well and I figured if they express an interest, I can definitely help or they can create on their own. :) Exciting! Alana 07:00, 16 March 2008 (CDT)

Template:NC & Template:Featured Article

See User:Salak/Wallace History. I've made tweaks to both Template:Featured Article (moving the star right) and Template:NC (moving the box very slightly left) so you'll want to look at them too. Do they look alright? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 10:43, 16 March 2008 (CDT)

OOC Note template.

I'd suggest using a system similar to the reference system on wikipedia but the code can be messy for those not familiar with it. Um... any reason indented italic won't suffice for now? We could make the note a sub page linked to by the text but that would require a seperate window open to view the main text at the same time. I've had no luck with my attempts to hide text before, I tried with Template:118Attached. It's part of why that got overly messy. If I could work out how to hide things, all the ship nav footers would prob have been merged into one by now and we might have fixed the ToC/Nav Menu template glitch. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 02:32, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

The details I corrected the other day, regarding the Quadrants, Sagitarrius A*, prob belong more on the Navigation pages than there. I'll agree it can at least be trimmed quite heavily. I've been more worried trying to get the star systems to be scientifically realistic though, to the point Eagle are prob sick of me by now, lol - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 02:39, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
I've seen Talk:Trinity Sector and will reply when I get a few seconds to find something on MA. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 02:44, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
Found what I was after and posted to that talk page. Got your e-mail btw. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 03:03, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
Oh yes, and the co-ords on Trinity Sector lack a Z axis, I've pointed that out already :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 04:24, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

User:Salak/Main Page

I've put the same gap in that there is on the current main page between the top box and the 3 below it. I tried to tinker with the coding for the FA box and the 2 below it but can't see how to ensure they'll line up. They seem to do so anyway to me, the one width discrepancy I can see is that the left of the top box is a pixel closer to the left of the page than the left of the other boxes. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 04:40, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Makes sense, I'm on IE. Might be a way around it, might be worth trying to play with the coding of the FA box to be as close to that of the bottom 2 as poss. I'm heading out of town in an hour or two until mid/late next week btw. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 04:45, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
...and I had spotted that error too, the title one def isn't a firefox thing! - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 04:46, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
Just tried to fix the title bars on the main page mock up. Not having much luck. I wound up almost completely rewriting the code for the bottom templates and made a mess of the page in the process. The wikipedia main page main boxes are two columns rather than two rows, so implimenting them could muck up the alignment of the bottom of the boxes. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 05:11, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

ILI Species

All the species I added are canon (see the discussion page). So if they're canon, do we still need our committee to approve them? They already been approved by Paramount and the Trek big-wigs? -Varaan 14:29, 25 March 2008 (EDT)

Well, since they have all appeared or been mentioned in Trek episodes or movies, they're canon, right? ;) As for the "playability ratings", I suppose you'd like a list for everyone to peruse to figure it out. I'll see what I can do. It might take a while, though. -Varaan 12:39, 26 March 2008 (EDT)

png files

I've been pm'd on the forums regarding issues uploading png's and I had issues myself last week. Thought it might be the file itself but given it's not isolated, was wondering if it might be an issue with the wiki itself? Have we lost the ability to upload png files? If so, any idea why? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 14:24, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

"Upload warning: The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again." - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:00, 10 April 2008 (EDT)
I'll confirm that :) Any idea what was wrong? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 20:59, 16 April 2008 (EDT)
You know curiousity killed the cat? It nearly got me too... I'm inquisitive :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 21:28, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

Featured Articles

I've had no reaction about Featured Articles since my call for a nomination a few weeks back on the Y!group. Basically, I want to run a candidate through before it can go open, want a nomination from someone else. Think it's in a usable state but no uptake so it's gone onto the backburner. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 12:04, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

Well I'd rather not put an article I've been heavily involved with forwards myself. Plus if someone else can understand how to nominate, that also shows the system's understandable to people other than myself. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 19:49, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
By the way, I've just fixed one glaring ommission I spotted... there was no way of getting to the Featured Articles page from the dummy main page :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 19:57, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
And I nominated Salak rather than USS Independence-A as I think Indy needs another para at least tbh, but not sure what to add to it. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 20:18, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
Three supports unopposed, I've promoted Karawati, made it AotM and put it on the main page. Doesn't seem to be any glitch so far so might be time to publicise it :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 06:42, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

Tables

Just found partly by accident that sortable tables actually work on here (see sandbox) but still having issues with collapsible tables (see also here). Tried to add the coding at both MediaWiki:Common.js & other places in the past but whatever I try, can't seem to get it working. Any ideas (other than giving up on it)? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:07, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

new species?

Hey Wolf,

I was wondering how would I go about submitting a created race into the ILI, I mean by having it processed through the CC, or EC, or whatever, so Its okay to use in future?

and where abouts do I submit it? Grauro 02:16, 9 April 2008 (EDT)

  • Nope, not quite since I can't have a secondary character... I just want to make it official now, and then maybe when Im lieutenant get an Ensign for this particular race, personaslly overlooking what I have written about it, I don't see any harm in the being, the history has similiarities with some, and the government, is very different to others, so society would be different too, and the phsiology doesn't make it a powersimming tool, but has its own balances IMO. but I was informed it has to be voted by the EC or CC Grauro 02:25, 9 April 2008 (EDT)
  • Fair Enough so If I fill it in as an NPC for now, then you can always overview it later on as a secondary or p[rimary later on? Grauro 02:31, 9 April 2008 (EDT)
  • So then Virtually I just fill in an Entry, and then you'll look it up among the CC, and Then its all good, so I can get to that as soon as possible :) Grauro 02:49, 9 April 2008 (EDT)

FA Template

How do you mean? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 19:37, 11 April 2008 (EDT)

True, but there've been no further nominations either. I think I see what you're getting at, but shouldn't be something intrusive... If I remember, I'll look into it when I wrap up my writing challenge entry :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 00:24, 14 April 2008 (EDT)
MA Featured articles have ma:Template:Featured at the BOTTOM of them. Would that be sufficient? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 09:39, 14 April 2008 (EDT)
Okay, I've added a boiler to Template:Featured Article. If you put the template at the bottom of a page, it'll add a boiler to the bottom at the same time as the star to the top. See Karawati. What do you think? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:30, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Changing templates

In regards to which? My Par'tha stuff? If so, it's because I'm altering the nav templates that I had done originally and going with a newer one that should be a bit more easy to use, plus it auto adds the {{NC}} and a category. More efficient. I'm not altering anything anyone else has done. -Varaan 08:24, 21 April 2008 (EDT)

FA Promotions

Fine with me. Seen the comment on the Ithassa Region talk page? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 20:59, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

The week mark is on Tues, but gonna promote Kolk now given the fact the article has more support than any previous nomination. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 09:21, 27 April 2008 (EDT)

USS Independence

You wanted the motto bar the same colour as the nav bar, THAT's what it looks like. :P - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 21:10, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

Tiger Deck Layout

Aware of the Phoenix plans :) I tried to merge them and the Wallace plans from the old Wallace site back in my days on Wallace. Been discussing the deck layout with Cmdr Riley on IM, but I think we're leaning towards the Phoenix layout in most cases where there's a disagreement between the plans. I'll try and remember to raise the staircase point with her later as she's gone offline for a while. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 20:12, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

Though it seems more like one or two decks than 4 decks in shots like Image:Steamrunner019.jpg? - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 20:14, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
*nods* Well I've added subheaders to Decks 1 and 2 to cite the different modules. I've sent Cmdr Riley an offline message on YIM to point out the Ready Room arrangement and the different modules. I'll link her to our talk page natter too. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 22:22, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

By the way, you don't have a map of the actual Main Bridge, do you? Or a description of the layout? No worries if you don't. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 10:13, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

No, I haven't checked EAS, but given any Bridge design would be non-canon, I'd be surprised if they had one. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 19:57, 7 May 2008 (EDT)
Just checked and indeed, seems they haven't. It links to two sites, one of which is this one. No Steamrunner bridges' but are any of those are a close approximation to what you had in mind? - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 20:05, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

Just got a question on the Tiger OOC list regarding phaser strength. I copied the weapon specs from the Phoenix-C, but it has an additional Type-X phaser to the specs on the class page, but the same total output. Should I add 5000tw for the extra phaser, remove the phaser from both...? Thoughts? - - Found it on the Steamrunner page and removed the phaser - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 10:58, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

Intrepid info on Duty Post pages

From what I remember, I did the Conn and Ops pages right from the TNG Technical Manual (with slight modifications for location of the stations on the Intrepid class). Other than ditching the Intrepid pages (or making them REALLY short: "The conn is located front and center on the bridge. See the HCO Duty Post page for a description of their function and duties."), I don't see a way around duplicating the pages. HOWEVER for the good of the wiki ('cos I'm a team player) if it would make more sense to ditch the intrepid stuff and just have the duty post pages, I'm okay with that. -Varaan 10:25, 9 June 2008 (EDT)

Ranks

I think there is a blank green one of that style. I'm not at home so can't upload to self, but if you go to the Kuro-rpg site, top button on the left nave is "Trek Ranks", then it's the Deep Space 9 Duty Uniform, Special Edition (#3) set. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 14:07, 19 July 2008 (EDT)

Here, I uploaded it to here. -Varaan 19:59, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

The Node

As far as I've been told; yes, it is different to the Hub. From what I can gather, the activity in the Hub is very broad and far-reaching in coverage, while the crew in the Node take care of the nitty-gritty and finer (boring? ;o)) details. --Quinn /talk page

Tiger layout again

The Bridge... Image:Tiger Bridge.PNG. Already shown this to the Captain, but wanted your opinion. I'm assuming the back left door would probably have led to a turbolift in the past or something, but deck plan mentions a conference room (in addition to the briefing rooms); might have been built in a refit so the corridor there. Yet to draw in the stairs (change to ramps to aid disabled access?) but the gaps for them to slot in are there. Oh, and I've removed that page title test from all 3 pages that it was on. I wasn't keen on it at first though, took a while for me to get used to it. - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 10:21, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

Spam

Manageable, perhaps, but it's really starting to grate on me. Any way of preventing it? Approving each account or something? - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 08:18, 12 September 2008 (EDT)

Featured article on Community News

Sure - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 04:52, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

Tempted to leave Karynn up for a second month given the fact that the FA's have dried up... - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 20:38, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Awards Clean Up

Admiral, I update the Challenger's Player Awards, three of them had Lt.Cmdr. Status when they recieved their awards so I changed those, and I also added Alex Swift's Pilot Sextant Award. And I changed the Marine ranks to the SF equivalents. Toni 06:46, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

I had the time today, and completed all the General awards in part two. All that's needed is for someone to check behind me to make sure I didn't miss any. Toni 12:43, 4 November 2008 (EST)

Award Correction

In cross-referencing the Awards listed with the actual Ceremony, I found a mistake in the Xalor Clan Xifilis Award. The list has Commander Sam Perkins listed with Lt. Jerry Reid, but according to the ceremony Lt. Satscher (Vojana Minerva Satscher) won the award. I wanted to check with you before I changed it.

Also the Staff Awards are not listed. Should they be added too? Toni 12:17, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

Additionally; Syrak was listed as recieving the Sarpedion, but the Staff ceremony text gave it to Seph? - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 13:48, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

You asked if I had proof of Syrak's Sarpedion Award... Yes, I have written proof of it in this Discovery sim. [1] Toni 19:10, 1 November 2008 (EDT)

Done sir. And as I believe that concludes the page, if someone would like to check behind me. the numbers agree on both the ship and the award sections.Toni 01:04, 2 November 2008 (EDT)

MA Content template

What version of IE are using? Have you a screenshot at all? I'm using IE7 and it seems fine... *puzzled* - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 10:22, 29 December 2008 (EST)

Image Galleries

Yeah they are... just SJReed had made a table full of thumbnails that looked... odd. Was trying to do something to make it more presentable and didn't think of galleries. Been a long week.... - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 14:02, 30 December 2008 (EST)

FA Panel

I assume the Featured Content edit panel is linked to forum logins? My PC died on Friday, so trying to make all my fleet links easy to get to from my wiki page, but don't want to cause a security issue - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 16:41, 12 January 2009 (EST)


USS Constitution

I think I'm getting the hang of this. I think... I will change the stuff I added and relocate them. Thanks for the tips. :D Captain Assanti

Re: Spam Team

Howdy Fleet Admiral. I would be more than willing to help on the spam problem. Lance 21:44, 28 February 2009 (EST)

Hey Admiral, don't know if you're aware but you deleted Lance! Hutch 05:35, 4 May 2009 (EDT)

Will do Admiral, I hope it helps alleviate the issue :) Lance 23:27, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
Got it, I will be sure to do that from now on. Lance 17:38, 9 June 2009 (EDT)

Spam Tagging

I'd also be willing to help out with deleting spam and blocking users. Let me know if I can help! BParker 22:13, 18 March 2009 (EDT)

Character Guild

Admiral. I'm doing some pruning/shifting/general sorting out of the Character Guild pages. Could we add a link to the Character Guild front page to the main page of the wiki under the 'getting started' section? There's a few links thre already but none that go directly to the Guild. While we're on the subject of the main page, Geeva Kalpana is great, but has been article of the month for infinity and a day. Just saying. Ta! Hutch 14:42, 1 May 2009 (EDT)

Re: Help With Spamming

Well, I'd like to know what it entails before I commit to it, so I know how much time/effort will be needed, but I'm certainly willing to give it a shot. -LtCmdr. Kolk 15:06, 22 June 2009 (EDT)

Awards Ceremony 2009, Ops

Hi Wolf,

You asked Whale for the Awards Ceremony for 2009- I believe it can be found here: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/sb118-ops/message/20113

--AlleranTan 04:51, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

I checked the sim above- it seemed to have David Whale receving the Barkley Bead, and he was part of Ops, so I thought that was it... sorry, I'm not sure which other sim there could be. :( --AlleranTan 06:02, 17 December 2010 (UTC)


Sorry, accidentally posted this on my own talk page :) Ops/Tiger awards for 2009 --> http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/sb118-ops/message/20072 - Whale 14:06, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Graphical timelines

Hey Flt. Admiral,

I tried to add fancy-smancy Graphical Timelines to the wiki but I think our include limit is lower than Wikipedia's so it doesn't work (Template:Graphical_timeline).

Thoughts? It's a specialised template and I was going to rewrite it to be for dates instead of fossils, so it's a lot of work if it doesn't work... should I play with this or just flag the templates for deletion and try something else?

Wiki Admin

Thanks Flt. Admiral! I'll keep an eye on my commits! --AlleranTan 14:49, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Thankyou, sir! I'll use the power wisely! Tallis rhul 22:54, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I've hit 500 commits. :) --AlleranTan 09:28, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Edit Summaries

I hope this is how I leave private messages to you, I don't have a clue really!

How do I leave a summary on the summary page? I had a look around my wiki but I couldn't see anywhere that mentioned summaries. When I know where it is I shall do that, though hopefully I won't have to edit anything again for a while, except for when I add more to my dad's thing (I am a little obsessed with making these at the moment!!).

Since I am asking things, I shall ask something else too. How do I do those picture navigation box things other users have? I won't need it yet because I don't have an avatar, but I would love to know for the future :-)

Thanks for the hint, and for letting us do this, it rocks!!

I tried to upload a picture of my character, but it seems to cause a fatal error message, when trying to click on it either in the list of uploaded files or the gallery I created.

"Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 21012000 bytes) in /home/wiki/public_html/wiki/includes/media/Bitmap.php on line 194"

~~ Yanell Delwyn, 2011-03-24 at 09:30 UTC

Strangly enough, I just updated the identical file (the wiki gave me a warning), and this new identical upload seems to work without problems. Curious. The file itself is not even 50 kiB. So I have no idea how that could cause any memory troubles in the first place. If you can, please delete the original faulty file.
