Gral and Shran call a truce


Welcome to Memory Alpha, Alientraveller! I've noticed that you've already made some contributions to our database – thank you! We all hope that you'll enjoy our activities here and decide to join our community.

If you'd like to learn more about working with the nuts and bolts of Memory Alpha, I have a few links that you might want to check out:

One other suggestion: if you're going to make comments on talk pages or make other sorts of comments, please be sure to sign them with four tildes (~~~~) to paste in your user name and the date/time of the comment.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them in our Ten Forward community page. Thanks, and once again, welcome to Memory Alpha!

Please note that I reverted your changes to the order of the Movies directors page as it was previously in alphabetical order by last name, in the same way as all of our other similar production lists. -- Sulfur 16:11, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Trek movie info pages

Hi, Alientraveller. A few of us have further discussed your suggestion regarding the creation of userpages for info from the Star Trek film. The general decision is that it's just not a good idea. Please read the entire discussion on my talk page for the reasons. Sorry if I initially misled you, but the truth is, I should have involved the community in this discussion before giving you the "go ahead." --From Andoria with Love 20:55, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Image uploads

Make sure that you cite your images properly on your uploads. All images from the new movie should have the following text at the end of the description (before the license):


That will indicate the source. Please also make sure that all descriptions are in the correct POV and that you give apt categories to the images. Thanks! -- sulfur 19:00, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Just an aside, you do not need to put on the license-based category or the category listing the movie/episode that the image is from. As long as you've cited and licensed the image properly, those categories are automatically maintained. :) -- sulfur 11:29, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

The alt pages

The wording of the mirror universe articles is wrong. It has to be changed to the correct POV, see ISS Enterprise. - Archduk3:talk 11:39, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Image reverts

Please do not revert images without giving a quick reason as to why. The only case that this is not required is when reverting obvious vandalism. Thanks. -- sulfur 16:25, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

"clear" after images

Please note that we have a template designed to handle this: {{clear}} -- it makes life a fair bit easier and simpler, and also allows us to quickly find every instance of its use without having to look for 6-7 different styles of clearing. :) -- sulfur 17:53, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks mate, was looking for a template, on other wikis it's marked as {{-}}. Alientraveller 17:54, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

New Proposal

Hello there. I wish to invite you to contribute and/or vote in this discussion on a new way of electing and retaining admins on Memory Alpha. Should you not wish to vote, your thoughts and opinions on this matter would be greatly appreciated in the "discussion" section. Kind regards, TrekFan. --| TrekFan Open a channel 11:37, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Image uploads

When uploading images, please be certain to add categories to them. For comic book covers for IDW releases, please use Category:Memory Alpha images (IDW comic book covers). Thanks. -- sulfur 13:16, January 1, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. --Alientraveller 16:22, January 1, 2012 (UTC)

To followup on this, when adding images, ensure that you cite them correctly in their description. Just adding the category is not acceptable. For example, your latest upload should have ({{film|11}}) at the end of the description. This will automatically add the relevant categories. Thanks. -- sulfur (talk) 19:02, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Cool, did not know that works as a template too. :) --Alientraveller (talk) 19:07, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Episode links and galleries

When putting in links to episodes, please use the {{e}} template. This is important. Also, when creating image galleries or adding images to them, please prepend the image names with "File:". This is not required in Mediawiki software, but makes our use of bots much easier. -- sulfur (talk) 17:14, November 20, 2012 (UTC)
