ILI templates

Hello Rich. Wanted to ask if it would be possible for you to make a couple more of your totally awesome templates. Like the Condition Red one you made for me and the SDC. Anyway what I would like is one for Quarantined species and another for Believed Extinct species. Also you mentioned at some time that you were going to alter the color from gray to green on the permitted species template. Just wanted to know if that was still the plan? Thanks. Canreb (talk) 15:28, 2 May 2014 (CDT)

Thanks. The Extinct one is perfect and I can work with the Quarantined as well. I know just when and how it will come in handy. As usual both are AWSOME!!!

What kind of a warning template would you use for species that have been restricted to their homeworld and denied contact with the outside world?? Examples are the Wraith and the Vendorian. I could use one for them and their particular situation. Canreb (talk) 06:47, 4 May 2014 (CDT)

An interesting idea... now to implement it I will have to go back and do a little modification... of the completed species P to Z... May take me a couple weeks but I think I could do it... I think the reason I ended up using the species name twice is that I don't work on them on the wiki but e-mail them to my work computer and do the rewrites there. Then e-mail them back home to finish, tweak and move to the wiki. It prevented me from mixed up the files as I am dealing with 10 to 20 rewrites at a time. But your right... we do not need the name listed twice.

Also adding a little paragraph at the start may be a good intro to that species... Will ask the membership of the SDC what they think. Canreb (talk) 15:04, 4 May 2014 (CDT)

Got a couple replies to the idea for putting the descriptive paragraph at the top... so far it has all been positive. I think that means we will adopt that for all of them. Now to add one to each of the completed species. Canreb (talk) 15:18, 4 May 2014 (CDT)

Hello Rich... I have a personal request. I am trying to spice up my personal characters page and while I may have learned a few things over the years I still have a lot to learn. I added a bunch of pics and some are to big and some are to small. How do I fix that. Also how would I go about putting the 3 diplomas I copied side by side instead of one on top of the other. I also need to find out who was in charge of the academy at the times I did the 3 different courses so I can corret that info on the diplomas. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Thank you. Canreb (talk) 09:20, 8 May 2014 (CDT)

Thanks for that quotes template. I am sure it will come in handy. Also I have finished the proposal to submit to the CC in regards to those changes to the T/E we discussed on the forums. Did you want to see it before I submit it? Canreb (talk) 16:00, 31 May 2014 (CDT)

Thanks for the NO CONTACT template. That will work perfectly for some of the species that are suppose to be off limits for contact.. Again Thanks... By the way the ESP proposal has been submitted to the CC for consideration. Sorry I did not let you get to see it before I did... RL got hectic... wife in the hospital... stuff at work... and I wanted to get it going before I lost all track of it due to this hectic activity around here... again thanks for the new template. It looks awesome Canreb (talk) 12:20, 12 June 2014 (CDT)

Hate to ask but could I get a template for species that are protected by the Prime Directive. Canreb (talk) 07:57, 22 June 2014 (CDT)

Thanks Rich. As usual you have delivered a fantastic and useful template. THANK YOU!!! Canreb (talk) 19:09, 22 June 2014 (CDT)

Well we have the go ahead to make the changes to the ESP section of the wiki. Since your the better wizard with the wiki I think you should do that part. Then we need a separate section or page with a list of all the species on the wiki that have one form of ESP or another. I can help with that and add each new species that has been rewritten by the SDC as we get to them. How does that sound? Canreb (talk) 15:11, 27 June 2014 (CDT)

I took a look at the T/E page and I hate to say it with some of the completed species that I need to add to the list none of them have Telepathic or Empathic abilities. What I do have is a species with danger sense, one that can start fires, one that can influence others by talking to them, etc... I started to alter the species section to add the following sections, population % with the ability, type of ability and the high, low and average level of the ability. Any more ideas, let me know. Canreb (talk) 22:52, 6 July 2014 (CDT)

Also can I get you to add the following line to the 3 pic templates used at the top of every species wiki page ESP Ability = Yes, Some, Few, Rare, None |, the permitted, restricted and forbidden ones. It seemed logical to add this line as well to these templates. the Yes, some, few rare and none are the possible choices for this line. Canreb (talk) 06:50, 7 July 2014 (CDT)

Hello. A separate ESP banner just for those few species that do have the capability does make sense. I would like to see and maybe comment on the finished product. I think it should be able to be adjusted to show the suggested items. Thanks for the suggestion. Canreb (talk) 12:42, 15 July 2014 (CDT)

Hi Rich. Can you take a look at the Minaran species page. For some reason the Restricted template is not showing up right on the page. Not sure why. I compared it to another and it looks to be correct but obviously I am missing something. Canreb (talk) 10:32, 26 January 2015 (CST)

Never mind. I finally figured it out. Amazing how easy it is to overlook a simple mistake. Canreb (talk) 11:16, 26 January 2015 (CST)

I try to keep an eye on those (factions and ship classes) and I guess I need to try and do so more often. It has long been one of my minor little quirks that I wanted to see a universal master listing of all Starfleet vessels with ship data, deck breakdowns and all of the alterations for upgrades, refits and variant versions. It would go a long way towards being not only a valued resource but a recruiting plug. Will try to add my 2 cents worth more often on those subjects. Just very commited to rewriting all of the ILI wiki pages and adding all of the missing species. Canreb (talk) 13:45, 27 January 2015 (CST)

Academy transcript

Hi Rich, I'm finding the new template for Academy transcripts incredibly confusing as the first semesters for every year seem to be worked a different way to the second and third semesters. I know there is probably a logical reason for this, but to an outsider, it's just confusing. Can you clarify for me? Lieutenant Alexander Richards (talk) 07:57, 5 May 2014 (CDT)

That would be fine. I did figure it out in the end, still don't know why the listings for the table are different between semester 1 and semesters 2&3 for each year though. Doesn't mess with the actual calculations for the top of the transcript though. LtCmdr Alexander Richards (talk) 12:03, 5 May 2014 (CDT)
Glad you got it sorted. I could have perhaps been clearer with what I was saying but you got it figured out anyway. :) Awesome job with this as always Rich! LtCmdr Alexander Richards (talk) 17:08, 5 May 2014 (CDT)

Hi, Rich. I was looking over the template and one of the folks I recruited was wondering if there's a way to put more than 60 credit hours on one transcript. Said friend of mine has 69 credit hours, but the max allowance is to the best of my knowledge 60. Let me know? Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 19:27, 27 May 2014 (CDT)

Not necessarily. To my understanding just wants to add more classes, not adding on an extra year. 69 credits in total. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 13:31, 28 May 2014 (CDT)
72 credits in total, 6 credit hours per semester instead of 5. Not tacking on an extra year. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 23:25, 28 May 2014 (CDT)
I was doing a bit more looking around once I saw your Template:Transcript-KBrice_Postgrad -- Is it possible for there to be something similar to a "running start" program instead? something like pre-admission coursework?
As I said, 72 credits in total: 6 per semester instead of 5. I know Voss's transcript has 72 credits on it because I'm helping design it. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 00:21, 3 June 2014 (CDT)
That's fine. The idea would be 12-15 credits for the "running start" to reduce the core credit requirements (According to [User:R'raika Voss|Voss], whose behalf I am inquiring upon.) Whichever you feel more comfortable with. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 00:54, 3 June 2014 (CDT)

Hi Rich. I've got a proposal about the Medical transcripts. From my point of view, counselors and nurses belong to Starfleet Medical, too. Therefore, they should be given a diploma by SF Medical at graduation. I've checked out, that this can be easily done with the existing templates. The diploma as well as the academic transcript would need change in that case.

Would you like to change that aspect or would you be willing to let me change the templates? (talk) 02:03, 28 June 2014 (CET; GMT+2)

Hey Rich, how do I enter a second Major in the template instead of a Minor? The Academy pages say you can double-major, but the template only seems to take a Major and Minor. -Kit Kizito (talk) 15:13, 29 July 2014 (CDT)

lol. So simple it didn't even occur to me. Thanks. -Kit Kizito (talk) 09:05, 30 July 2014 (CDT)

Major classes

Just had a look at Academy Majors and Minors/Counseling and found it kind of odd that Counselors had to take ENG: Life Support Systems . . . Anyway. Just thought I'd point that out.

Also: There's the Liberal Arts: Application of Creative Design in Holodecks that's mentioned to be a class in the Engineering Majors and Minors, but isn't listed in the Engineering School page. I'd assume it comes under either Material Engineering or Programming? Sky Blake (talk) 18:24, 6 May 2014 (CDT)

Makes sense. Just seemed a little odd that they were taking a course that had very, very little to do with counselling itself.
I'll take a look. Don't count on a good description or anything, though. :P Should we swap "Liberal Arts" for "ENG323"? Sky Blake (talk) 18:37, 6 May 2014 (CDT)

Enlisted Ranks for the PC/PNPC/NPC rosters?

Hi! I was just wondering if you had plans to add the enlisted and marines to those rosters? I noticed an issue when I was trying to add some PNPCs who hold ranks like Petty Officer or Cadet.

Thanks for your time!

LoAs on Darwin History Page

Dude, there are no LoAs on the Darwin Crew History page - the reason I took that down was because it's diverting people to go look at nothing! Diego Herrera (talk) 18:24, 1 June 2014 (CDT)

Ship Motto

Hi Rich! I've reverted the Garuda's motto for now -- the new quotation format was getting lost on the page and it wasn't really clear exactly what it was.

Also: The new sidebar looks amazing! --Quinn /talk page 08:14, 14 June 2014 (CDT)

Discovery B Crew History

So, when I was looking at the Previous Ships Called Discovery and I went to view the crew history of the Discovery B, I noticed it redirects to Discovery C crew history. Is that deliberate? If it isn't, I'd like to take it on as a project. Chythar Daniel Skyfire (talk) 10:56, 23 June 2014 (CDT)

Issues with new Pips?

Hi! Just wanted to see if you knew that there was an issue with the mirror pips thing you created to make it look like a collar. There doesn't seem to be one for the marine 2nd Lieutenant. Just FYI. http://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php?title=Zh%27Eriss,_Talisa

Pips templates

Sorry. I didn't realize the float-right was for the double-pips thing. It was messing up my Sidebar, but I'll figure out a work around. -Kit Kizito (talk) 09:39, 7 August 2014 (CDT)


Thanks for sorting out the issue. I finally saw it just after you did. Now it's all working great. Thanks a ton! -Kit Kizito (talk) 10:30, 7 August 2014 (CDT)

Re: switch vs if, I'll look into that and learn it for other stuff, but I think the if is okay for now because I think the colors all match for the DS9, FI, and Slanted but are just different for the Default pips, so two options should be okay. But I suppose I haven't looked into color matching for the STO pips yet... -Kit Kizito (talk) 10:46, 7 August 2014 (CDT)

RE: Proposed update to main page

I don't wish to undermine your time spent on this, but is this really necessary? I think the main page looks great the way it is, and I don't see a benefit to adding the extra stuff which seems to create visual clutter to my eyes. --Wolf /talk page 20:05, 16 August 2014 (CDT)

ILI "permitted" gallery

I moved the SDC nav to the bottom of this page -- can you take a look and tell me if you think that works? The issue is that we link to this from the main application, and I don't want to confuse people with information about the SDC when they're primarily going to be looking for a species to put on their app. --Wolf /talk page 13:35, 13 September 2014 (CDT)

"What the" on the Ronin Crew History

Hey, Rich. When you get a chance, could you take a look at what on Earth is going on on the Ronin Crew History - for some reason, a rank insignia has turned into some sort of button that changes the position of T'Pen, Teller and Walker. I'm not sure what's going on - I looked at the code and I can't see what might be wrong. ♣ Deliera talk Vice Chief of Wiki Ops 17:57, 15 September 2014 (CDT)

Hey, Rich. Just wanted to let you know, the Bio Team badge doesn't play nice on a full service rack. I tried placing it in a few different places, and it didn't want to let me. As you can see below, it messes with my entire code. If you could take a look, I'd appreciate it.

Creating a template like the crew roster.

Hello Rich. Whilst updating the Gemini Awards History today, I was wondering if it would be possible to create a template based on it and if so how to go about it. I know that the <includeonly></includeonly> & <noinclude></noinclude> wiki markup is used to denote what is in the template and what shows on the template page as a guide on how to use it but, beyond that, I'm slightly confused. Any advice you can provide would be most appreciated. Lt Cmdr Alexander Richards, talk 23:49, 7 October 2014 (CDT)

Found the e-mail but must say I got pretty lost. That's probably due to me just waking up though. I'll give it a proper read when i am more awake and take it step by step. Lt Cmdr Alexander Richards, talk 20:29, 9 October 2014 (CDT)

STO template

Hey there!

I saw you had created an STO template and that it said there was no civilian/blank pips. There actually is, it's found here: http://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php/File:STO_Civilian_Grey.jpg

RoundTable and related templates

Hey Rich,

I can't figure out why the last cell in all of the entries that I put into these templates end up virtical aligned to the top, which screws up the spacing on the pips and stuff. Can you take a look at it for me? For lots of examples of the problem, check out Columbia Crew History. -James T. Kolk (talk) 14:37, 4 November 2014 (CST)

Thanks for the fix. It's very interesting. Unfortunately, it's created a new problem that, at least, shows up less often than the previous one; it is this: the code for the invisible space character is showing itself instead of the invisble space sometimes. (E.g. see Columbia Crew History#Tactical.) Not sure what to do about it... -James T. Kolk (talk) 09:15, 10 November 2014 (CST)

Klingon/Gorn/Naussican peace talks @ K7 (FNS)

Hi Rich, Rob here. Unfortunately I have had to remove the mention of these talks As they are part of the set up for a story arc the Gemini is currently working on. Essentially it is a multi-mission arc and we are going to be dropping subtle hints regarding the ultimate destination as the story progresses. This involves the peace talks between the Gorn and the Klingons and a few other things in the Gemini's AOO. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

"Read more" on UFP history

On this page is there an indication we can use at the bottom of the text that people should use the sidebar to read more sections of this? New cadets linking through from the main website may not understand the context of the sidebar, or where exactly they're linking in to. Either something like "Use the menu items on the right to read more..." or perhaps just a "step through" link like "Next read about the...."? --Wolf /talk page 17:51, 7 December 2014 (CST)

Perfect! --Wolf /talk page 18:21, 7 December 2014 (CST)

Spacing on Crew History Template

Hey, Rich. I was tinkering in my history box working on the crew history for the USS Challenger and came across a spacing issue that I'm not sure how to remedy. It's at the bottom, in the line of Andrus Jaxx: it's doing the forcing the text into the top thing rather than centering it in the box for the notes. Any help would be appreciated. Dr. Skyfire (talk) 22:08, 8 December 2014 (CST)


Hey Rich

Can you please delete page http://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php/Beyettnav I should have made it with Template:beyettnav which i did afterwards. Thanks


Update: It's working now....sorry!

Hi Rich I changed my Side Bar, on Kael Thomas, and it all worked fine. However, it doesn't refresh on my name page, despite reloading the page etc. It still shows the old navbar. Any help?


Love the layout and the look. Obviously it is still a work under construction as it does not have the Gorn, Tholian, Dominion, Breen, etc on the list. I could probably think of another 5 to 10 that might need to be added as well. Regardless it looks amazing.... As always you do FANTASTIC work... Canreb (talk) 15:44, 29 December 2014 (CST)


As always the work you have done on the ships is out of this world. The only thing I see missing from most of the ship descriptions is how many decks each ship has. I also think you should list if the ship can land on planets, has the ability to separate into two sections and if it is still in production with the start and end data for said production. Canreb (talk) 17:01, 30 December 2014 (CST)

Found 2 ship classes missing from your list. The USS Thunder which is a Cheyenne class vessel and the USS Centris which is a Renaissance class Vessel. I listed the 2 named ships to show that we had these ship classes with in our fleet. You should check out this great web site. Fantastic details on each ship class. http://techspecs.acalltoduty.com/federation.html (Canreb (talk) 22:52, 15 February 2015 (CST))

Help with a wiki template

I noticed today that ServiceHistory had some errors and I wanted to expand it's functionality so if more people wanted to use it they could. The issue I ran across is that I had to more or less convert to HTML syntax since I was having a lot of issues with wiki. But.. that said, I'm getting wiki being 'helpful' and inserting it's own closing tags causing the table to bork. (If it's not the last thing when you start merging ranks it gets really annoying. That and apparently postings.)

Could you take a look at it and see what I did wrong? Ceciri (talk) 12:34, 31 January 2015 (CST)

- I actually tend to agree. On reflection, it's at this point more complex than just using the default table syntax. I'm the only one using it, so I think I'll just queue it for deletion for now. Ceciri (talk) 20:28, 31 January 2015 (CST)

-- I am sorry about the kneejerk reaction. Will make a point next time to ask you first. I was a little surprised about that, though, since there's been no notice in the SDC group about the Gallery being an issue. However, it makes sense. Again, apologies. Ceciri (talk) 08:03, 1 March 2015 (CST)
