My Article

I wrote an article for SFMJ that talks about nanotech. I was thinking it might be a good article for the JSCE. How would I go about contacting someone to look into that? Who would I contact?

Unused & Uncategorized Images

Hey, Rich. I was poking around on the wiki helping Ceciri with categories and I noticed your admiral header

Admiral Header

. Did you have anywhere specific in mind for it? Dr. Skyfire (talk) 18:14, 27 December 2015 (CST)

And your "Adventure Continues" image.
Dr. Skyfire (talk) 18:22, 27 December 2015 (CST)
Righto. I was just trying to figure out if there was a preferred category you wanted to stick them in. Dr. Skyfire (talk) 10:20, 28 December 2015 (CST)

Crew History template + ID subpage

So, one of the things I figured out is that the history template doesn't seem to play nicely with redirects. I'm guessing this is a glitch, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. Embassy Crew History contains a broken redirect for an ID subpage. Dr. Skyfire (talk) 12:36, 14 January 2016 (CST)

Member Directory

Hello - during reading of old sims on Duronis I located first Brell/Lyldra's character, Ebrin Tarn. It don't have wiki page, so it's link is red on the Member Directory/E. Writer will not write the character any more and may not make the character page for it. Can you add option for no link names?

Academy classes

Just went back through Kinan's transcript and found that I'd actually created a new class. Since I'm picky about looks, how do I go about linking the subject (ADMIN500) to the page Administration? One black code compared with 40+ blue looks funny. ♣ Deliera File:Invicta Player Achievement-Well connected.png Chief of WOtalkforums 23:25, 16 April 2016 (CDT)

Aha! Much appreciated! ♣ Deliera File:Invicta Player Achievement-Well connected.png Chief of WOtalkforums 01:05, 17 April 2016 (CDT)

Remember to write documentation.

My bad. I saw you edit it last and thought it was yours. Since it's locked to me, can you throw it into his category (Varaan)? I'd link it here but brilliant me has forgotten how to do that. ♣ Deliera File:Invicta Player Achievement-Well connected.png Chief of WOtalkforums 17:29, 17 August 2016 (CDT)
Actually, just leave it for now. We'll come back to it later. ♣ Deliera File:Invicta Player Achievement-Well connected.png Chief of WOtalkforums 17:31, 17 August 2016 (CDT)

Templates that should be in [Category:Roster templates]

They're all protected (sigh) and I'm not an admin, so I leave this to you. Not certain if this should include all the system templates. ♣ Deliera File:Invicta Player Achievement-Well connected.png Chief of WOtalkforums 19:29, 17 August 2016 (CDT)

Re: Category naming

I think it'd be worth it, if we decide that we want Roster Templates over Roster templates, for example (or vice versa) since IIRC, we don't have a standard naming scheme. I tend to think that right now, for the template projects we should go with Deliera's initial idea and keep that themeing. I've been meaning to find time to go through the LCARS variant templates and document them, since me and James wrote the main one, and I'd like to make sure the variants are needed and documented. Or just even documented. Ceciri (talk) 15:39, 18 August 2016 (CDT)

Hn, those are good ideas. Hopefully that works - I don't mind editing the protected templates for people, but having a trusted power user group would allow more people to do changes. Ceciri (talk) 15:56, 18 August 2016 (CDT)

Re: Wiki System Templates

Generally yes, but stuff like AltCrew should be listed in some way you can find it by looking for AltRoster, since they're tied. Maybe it should be categorized as a dependent template or something? Ceciri (talk) 15:57, 18 August 2016 (CDT)

Template question

Hey, Rich. I was putzting around on the wiki as I tend to do and noticed the interesting template directory thingie on Roshanara Rahman's page: floaty and kind of like the Face List one... I'm curious, what's the code? I may want to implement it (or similar) on some of mine that are long and rambly. Zephyr • History Team (talk) 02:09, 18 November 2016 (CST)

Thanks! Makes more sense now. Zephyr • History Team (talk) 03:24, 19 November 2016 (CST)
So, doing more putzing and realized that for some of the retired awards (Barclay bead, in particular) it doesn't seem to be compatible with the templates Template:Ribbons Rack or Template:Ribbons Display. Is there a shortcut for displaying retired awards which currently aren't compatible? Zephyr • History Team (talk) 12:39, 11 February 2017 (CST)

Too many roster templates?

I know standardizing roster templates was a struggle over the last two years, but now I'm at the point where I can't even locate the current roster template for use of the ID pages. XD As soon as it's found, can we swap into the Recent Changes header so to avoid confusion? I think the one currently displayed still attempts to utilize the LN,FN despite the ID templates. ♣ Deliera VeritasLogo.png Veritastalkforums 09:46, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

The commander’s promotion process which entails both a written exam and a practical exam can be long and challenging for candidates. The Veritas Command Staff is dedicated to ensuring all our candidates will be well-prepared with the skills, knowledge, and support they need from us to successfully complete all components of the process and earn their promotion.

Noted. Sorry about that; I probably should've asked first. I'll move those to the mission page, if you haven't done so already. Zephyr • History Team (talk) 13:40, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Hello Rich I already saw that about the language and plan to go back and fix those mistakes. But in the meantime I have been doing some tentative work on the Ohanze. Thank you for the info you have provided. Most I already had but some is new to me. I was planning on asking someone from the USS Veritas to check my work before I posted it to the Ohanze species wiki page. Could you please take a look at the following page and give me your opinion of it.

please remember that it is still a work in progress but I hope to finish it soon so that I can move it to the Ohanze species wiki page.

Canreb (talk) 15:07, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

OK. I deleted all references to the Ohanze on those two wiki pages you mentioned as I completely agree that they are more isolationists and unlikely to be involved. I will work more on them later.

I think I have as much info on my temp work page for the Ohanze as I can fit in based on all the references I was able to find. Let me know if I missed anything or if anything needs to be changed. I could not find any info about Religion, Psychology, Culture, Customs or Society. Is there any??

Canreb (talk) 16:51, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

That would be fantastic. Any and every bit of help that can make this better and more important accurate is greatly appreciated. I know that the crew of the USS Montreal has plans to interact with the Ohanze and I want to be able to build on what your crew has already created.

Canreb (talk) 19:56, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Just saw the changes and work that Sky Blake did to update and convert the wiki page for the Ohanze... WOW!!!!! It looks great. The pic she found for the Ohanze it is 100 times better than what I found as a possible pic. After looking at what she has I think it would be best if she just takes anything she can use from the stuff I was working on and let me know when she is done so I can erase the rest.
