Tenses in SummariesEdit

As a note, here at MA, we take the view that everything happened in the past, so summaries should (whenever possible) be written as if they'd already occurred, rather than describing them in the present tense. I noticed that you changed a couple of novel summaries to use the present tense rather than the past tense, so I figured that I'd let you know about that. -- Sulfur 23:50, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

I had originally written some novel summaries in past tense, then noticed that episode summaries are written in present tense, so I changed them to match. DaleC76 12:50, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Yah, a number of episodes are in the present tense, something that is slowly being worked through. Very slowly. 20000 articles does that to you, Eh? :) Anyhow, just wanted to let you know. Best part is, I can't currently find the policy that discusses this! Bah! I'll keep hunting and get back t you with it as soon as I can though. Heheh. so Sad. -- Sulfur 13:20, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Character/Article LinksEdit

When adding links to a summary, it's often best to actual link to the correct article, whether by pipe, or by the full name. For example, your recent redirect for Geordi should have been [[Geordi La Forge|La Forge]] (especially since characters are generally referred to by last name as opposed to first name) rather than creating a new redirect for it. -- Sulfur 12:22, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
