Planetary Naming Conventions

I guess it's going to have to depend on how important the world is to the rest of the galaxy. A small mining colony wanting to rename a planet after it's founder doesn't stack up to a major planetary habitation (ie Mars), right? Hmmm. I think we still need some type of guideline. Population, maybe? -Varaan 15:29, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

Duronis II...There's always an abberation, right? Can't do much about it when it is part of a "ship" group listing, as in the "Embassy of Duronis II". Wouldn't make much sense to people looking at it if the "vessel" was the "Embassy of Duronis II" but the planet it was on WASN'T Duronis II, would it? So do we do what we can and put up with that which we can't? -Varaan 08:35, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

Toni Turner's Page

I liked Favorite Sims. but that was more the writer's feelings than the Character's Feelings so I restored the old version. Toni 19:18, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

Void that. I am using the new page and made the changes from my page. Toni 20:16, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

SB118Ops Crew

Cheers for the heads up, mate ;) I've got too much time at work so if you need anything give me a shout - Jack Heath 15:28, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

Thanks mate; added a few to the SB118 Crew stuff. Added that table and the template at the bottom. Give us a shout if something's wrong Heath 17:24, 7 June 2008 (EDT)
Sorted out the table and redirected the footer to the old one, replacing the format ;) I'm blasting through, updating what I can. I think the crew list is a bit out as well but I'll have to have a good look through. Heath 07:50, 8 June 2008 (EDT)
Got any ideas what we could do with it? I've been trying to update the mariens department but I've been trying to think of things we could do with the rest. Heath 07:59, 8 June 2008 (EDT)
I did the same roster menu for the Marines in four seperate ones for the squads. I'm trying to find something else to do... really can't think of anything now, lol. Let me know if you think of anything. Heath 12:00, 8 June 2008 (EDT) Talk
Maybe... You can't prove a thing! ;) Heath 12:17, 8 June 2008 (EDT)
Alright, alright... you caught me! Thanks for the info, I've sorted it out now so it's all good. It's just knowing where to look. I'm not too bad at sorting out the ship but knowing what to do and where to find it is another thing entirely. I wouldn't mind getting Wiki-Savy. Cheers, mate! JackTalk 12:28, 8 June 2008 (EDT)
Worked that out in end, did a bit of fiddling with it on the sandbox before getting it bang on. Phew! JackTalk 12:30, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Page blanking

Sorry Salak, I wanted it deleted because the PNPC is now just an NPC and didn't need a biography anymore. Sorry, man! JackTalk 14:55, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

He's more of an uneeded character now, if you know what I mean. I don't SIM for him and never really have done; he was always a background character so I'd rather leave it blank for any Marine PC to take a pick of JackTalk 15:10, 8 June 2008 (EDT)
You know, I didn't know what that was for until now. Using it freely now, lol :D. Cheers for your help, mate. JackTalk 04:15, 9 June 2008 (EDT)

Devar, Arista

LOL, that's perfectly okay. I appreciate your help greatly! :) Alana 19:10, 9 June 2008 (EDT)

Way Corridor System & Waystations

You know, you're right. It should technically be classified/restricted. Hmm... thoughts to new category name? DCody 14:49, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Let's go with that. DCody 14:54, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

USS Horizon

Julia Harden was born on the Horizon. That was really the only mention of it. Ooooo.... I made it a link. I should fill in the Akira class information. I've got some time now. I'll be looking into it. Thanks for the reminder. I had made a note in my faulty head to do that. Julia Harden 22:23, 24 June 2008 (EDT)

creating sector template

Well I started to do the work to split Trinity into 3 sectors like we discussed... I picked the names for the one above (Serellan) and the one below it (Jenatris Cloud)... then I tried to copy and creat new templates... I suceeded with Jenatris Cloud... but failed with Serellan... each time I tried to use the link it sent me to Trinity... what did I do wrong... Canreb 21:58, 25 June 2008 (EDT)

return of the spam

And I thought it had gone quiet for a while! Hutch 07:16, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Character development

I'm finally getting to work on my character profile... problem... age 23 when he graduated from the Academy as a ensign... age 26 when he gets promoted to Lt. Commander... only 3 years... I need to add some time to make it more believeable... any ideas other than maybe going back to school for advanced studies... Canreb 19:44, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

Science Uniform

I used to have an image of a blue collared science uniform on this page:

As you can see the old link is broken/ the image gone. It is a little annoying...any idea where the quivalent picture might be so that I can get it back?

Family Tree

Ehm... it basically charts the tree of which ship launched out of which ship/ which CO launched from which CO. As such it doesn't matter if Riley served under all the previous COs and transfered vessel as it was RAdm Anassasi who launched her as a CO (and marks her Captain's practical exam) and her ship was launched out of RAdm Anassasi ship. She may have served under Kar'een but her ship was not launched from half of Kareens ship and Kareen didn't launch her (train her/ nominate her to sit the Captaincy tests/ grade her Captain's exam).

It doesn't really matter which way the pyramid goes, I just figured it made sense to have current day CO's at the top as those are the ones people will know and that way you can chart backwards in time to the original seed. Plus was just easier to update the table in this order... I think you'll find thats how ancestry charts usually work. See:

It will no doubt make more sense once complete.

"Fleet Captain Rocar Drawoh | Talk"

Thanks for offering to invert the table, however, there really is no need for you to do so as ancestry charts are supposed to run from bottom to top. It, therefore, makes more sense to keep it the way it is already laid out. If you don't want to take my word for it then please review:

Ancestry tree

See Talk:UFOP Family Tree#Possible tree.... Probably best to do it this way until we've got a more complete picture? :) --Wolf /talk page 20:04, 8 July 2008 (EDT)

Family Tree: Tekra

I'm okay with listing me as 'don't know who trained him' -- I'm me, and I don't know what name I'd pick ;) I went with Wolf because it seemed right, but if that's "don't know", I'm okay with that. I was made Captain on the StarWind by Randor, but under various times served under Wolf, Kelly, Jolon, Keldor, Demma, Randor, Skyfire, Pelletier, Ruach, Hurne ... and served WITH Marlin, Aquiss, Hollis, and a bunch of the others, and most of them influenced me in one way or another.

Family Tree

Heya Salek,

I'm very pleased with the left handside of the table but...

See the right handside of the table? I can't seem to get each Captain's box the same uniform size and it looks a bit messy. Would you know how to make them all the same size on the right there?

Thank Ye Kindly

Cheers for doing that, Salak. As you know by now I'm useless at technical stuff. Much appreciated!

"Danny Wilde | Talk"

PS: I'm hoping to get a grid like some of the others - but for my professional history which dates from the Constitution through to the Ronin, with the stardates, rank and assignment too. Any pointers on how to do that? Thanks! Danny Wilde 01:00, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

I'll have a list of info sent to you- but don't rush yourself with it - I'm on temporary LOA next week as well while I move house. Thanks a million - I owe you one!

Deleting Articles

Yes, but as I said in my email, I will give Canreb the opportunity to move some of his original work elsewhere before I arbitrarily delete the page in case he would like to use it in a different capacity DCody 11:46, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

FTU Short Description Races

Canreb is welcome to ascribe new names/descriptions for what he took from the FTU known races list, but unless those pages are renamed (like Oxi, Ramdii and others), I will delete them. DCody 12:50, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

If he's the creator of the Ga'tor, there's no reason he can't move them. I don't recall ever seeing them in the FTU missions for Independence or Ronin (Ursa Major I don't know about). Other FTU races, on the other hand, were simmed and usually developed by Anassasi, Hollis, and Mar. DCody 13:05, 25 July 2008 (EDT)


I know I made this template. I must have saved it incorrectly. Can you find it? Thanks Susan Banks 13:56, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

Interwiki links

I have no idea what you said. What does ma: mean? Does it need to be italics? Pretend I don't know what you're talking about and speak to me as your child. Julia Harden 00:34, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

Very clear! *Now* Thanks for the indepth explanation. You're the best! Julia Harden 19:52, 10 August 2008 (EDT)

wiki ethos

Could I ask you to take a peak at:-

I've just added a question there for you and Varaan... is there any other wiki staff? If so, perhaps they could glance over it too?

Cheers for your help.

Tiger layout again

The one with the stairs down looks fine to me. The Phoenix-C Deck Plan doesn't have a conference room on the bridge deck, so I'd say that you could use that back left door for a commode, maybe? Not glamorous, but at least closer to reality :) If you take a look here, you can see the three decks that I refer to - lowest deck is conference room, the next little bezel on top of that are the ready rooms, and then the top bulb is the actual bridge itself. I think the size is a little off (the lowest deck looks like the same height as the top two), but c'est la vie.

Ramps vs. stairs: don't all wheel-chairs float in the 24th century, making that a bit of a moot point? :)

I'm not sure what you're referring to regarding this?: "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." --Wolf /talk page 19:50, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

Re: Spam

Not that I'm aware of. --Wolf /talk page 19:59, 12 September 2008 (EDT)

PC nav layouts

Salak, where would I find the different PC nav layouts you were talking about? Toni 17:03, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Featured article on Community News

If I can set it up so you can just edit a text file on a monthly basis, would you be willing to update the "118 Wiki feature" area on the main page of the site? --Wolf /talk page 00:56, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

According to the FA page there's still 3 articles waiting after Karynn? 2 characters and Ithassa? Hutch 06:41, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

Yup, but nominations have slowed plus the turn of the month wasn't a great time for me... - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 06:43, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

Messed up ship templet v. templet for character

I made a templet for Paul Diamond to replace the templet that was being used for the Indria. It's there, but I don't quite know how to use Diamond's instead of the Indria's. Help? Susan Banks 01:09, 14 October 2008 (EDT)


Go with what was on the awards ceremony, then. Thanks! --Wolf /talk page 18:27, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

Warp Drive & Ithassa Five

Hi Jay, could you delete the subpage Brice, "Ethan/Warp Drive and The Ithassa Five"? I'm creating an independent page for it. Ki 06:55, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

Sorry, man. I shall remember next time :-D Thanks, Uber Wiki-er! Ki 07:04, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
It has faded into the realms of the obscure for some of us :). Got anything I can help with? Ki 07:12, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

Link to a slideshow

I created a slideshow/movie and put it on You Tube. You can watch it by doing a search for USS Indria. Now I want to put either the show or the link on the Indria's main wiki page. Is that possible? I've gotten an okay from Cmdr. Assanti. Julia Harden 22:06, 12 December 2008 (EST)

Sorry, Jay. Now that I've saved this, I see you're gone until Feb. I'm going to go to one of the other admins. Julia Harden 22:09, 12 December 2008 (EST)

MAContent template

Something is messed up with the Template:MAContent template, at least on IE. The Float Right seems to cause the page to have a huge width. Any ideas? :-\ --Wolf /talk page 00:04, 27 December 2008 (EST)

Thumbs / SFMC images

It's really better to use Image Galleries than tables ;) --Wolf /talk page 13:28, 30 December 2008 (EST)

SFMC Uniforms

Thank you for fixing that, Salak. In all honesty, I wasn't finished working on it and probably would have done something different today. It had been awhile since I'd done any html, though, and it would have taken awhile. Still, I hate it to have been a pet peeve and an annoyance to you. Next time, if you want to send me a suggestion, I can go ahead and implement. It'll get me in the practice of building webpages again, and it might save you...and me...a headache. I know uniforms can be annoying, but I also know they really lend a great visual to those wondering what the uniforms would look like, and that is why I wanted a page on them. Again, thank you kindly. :) Personally, I really like the look of the table. That is how I've seen uniform pages done elsewhere on the "regular" web. SJReed 15:16, 30 December 2008 (EST)

FA Panel

Yup, forum login. Shouldn't be a problem. --Wolf /talk page 21:49, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Um . This might seem long over due but I just noticed your message from March 2008 LOL..OM. how embarrasing. but thanks for the adivice. I'll try to use the character page.. Thx

Also, I would like some help on revamping the USS Constitution's wiki pages. I've done some adding there and I'd like to take a more active role in doing the wiki pages. Captain Assanti
