[Press Request] Being The Master of The Star Trek Universe Edit

Hi Sulfur,

I'm a reporter for a site called Atlas Obscura, and I'm researching a story about what it's like to be a Memory Alpha admin. I'd love to talk to you about your contributions to the site, and the challenges of keeping it both accurate and civil, among such a large and vocal fan base. Could we set up a quick interview either via phone or email so that I could talk to you for the story? Please email me at the address below and let me know if we can set something up.

Thanks again for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

I need an image renamedEdit

Hi. So I've uploaded "this image" from the Enterprise opening credits, and in my defense, I wasn't exactly completely reckless: I hadn't found a nasa source image, but I found tree different sites describing the booth as Armstrong's and so I decided to move ahead. However, as it turns out it is in fact a Buzz Aldrin photo the animation was adapted from. I'll take care of changing all info, but I need an admin to rename the pics. Thanks in advance. -- Capricorn (talk) 06:32, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

It's best to simply update the image with the correct information in these cases, and then ask for the rename. And to actually indicate your recommended name. Haha. -- sulfur (talk) 13:30, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

I suppose "Buzz Aldrin's first step on the moon" would be my proposed new name then. I guess I was waiting to update the description because it felt weird to have the image say Armstrong while the description said Aldrin - which I admit on second thought makes little sense. By "and then ask for the rename", do you mean I should have put a template up instead of going to an admin directly? -- Capricorn (talk) 13:57, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

It's best to have the "content" as correct as possible. Image names are "easy" to fix (grand scheme of things) and we have more incorrect than correct (in terms of both content and style) to be honest.
But in short, if there's an issue with the content, fix that, then ask for a rename, whether by template or throwing it at an admin that's around regularly (include the recommended name on it too, and why... you did the latter above). -- sulfur (talk) 14:06, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for renaming. And sorry for somehow making this way more complicated then it could be...again. -- Capricorn (talk) 06:13, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Edit

Thanks for the page moves. :) --Defiant (talk) 20:51, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Alec Peters Edit

Someone with the necessary credentials needs to go into the Alec Peters page and update it regarding the copyright infringement suit against him by CBS over his fanfilm project and Ares Studios. Since you were the last one to edit his page, I thought I would give you a heads up. 20:21, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

Find some citations to reputable articles, and those can be added. -- sulfur (talk) 20:42, January 24, 2016 (UTC)
