Kennelly, I just have a minor comment -- our database stores every edit you make independantly, rather than overwriting the old version, so rather than making dozens of minor edits to the same article in short periods of time, it might be better to use the preview function, or simply try to perform multiple edits to the entire article and then save it, as resaving each subsection article edit repeatedly makes it take large amounts of diskspace. Other than that, thanks for all the good edits and for helping Memory-Alpha! -- Captain Mike K. Bartel


  • Regarding the categorization of provisional categories, those that you have categorized and those not yet categorized are being compiled and are set to be done by a bot. Therefore, they do not need to be done manually to "clog" our 'recent changes' page with a bunch of minor edits. --Alan del Beccio 16:01, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Replaced pic Edit

I replaced your "File:Cap001.JPG" with File:Kennelly has ginger tea.jpg, as the original name was not very descriptive; I also cropped out the black outer ridge and shrunk it a little. Feel free to put it on what ever page you intended on now, - AJHalliwell 20:50, 20 Sep 2005 (EDT)

Saratoga in Aquiel Edit

I noticed you put the reference to the Saratoga being in "Aquiel" was back in the article. Can you tell me where this ship was mentioned in that episode? Was it in an early version of the script? Locarno 13:34, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

It's on a viewscreen in the last third of the episode when Rocha's logs are shown. Kennelly 13:39, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Valerian root tea Edit

I didn't know that before as well, but Valerian is the English word for the German "Baldrian", so what was meant in "Second chances" was Valerian root tea (Baldrian Tee) from Earth. So there is no connection to the species with the same name. --Jörg 14:40, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Ship Name formatsEdit

When adding ship names, they should be formatted like this: USS Enterprise, as opposed to USS Enterprise. Thanks! -- Sulfur 21:33, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Telemarius IIIEdit

I moved the page you created to Telemarius IV. The script says III, but onscreen, Data actually says IV when telling Jenna about the flowers. Your user page has a link to III (which redirects to IV now), so I thought I'd let you know. I fixed all the other pages that linked to it. Tired_ 13:27, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

"Reginald Barclay" FA nomination Edit

Hi there. I noticed you have made a contribution to the Reginald Barclay article. Perhaps you would consider voting for it in the nomination process? If you support the article as one of Memory Alpha's best works, simply put Support along with your reasoning. If you object to the article becoming featured, just put Oppose along with your reasoning. Featured articles help us to showcase the Memory Alpha community's ability and it's only through the participation of users such as yourself that we can get these articles featured. Thanks for your time. Live long and prosper! --| TrekFan Open a channel 15:19, February 19, 2011 (UTC)

Orphans Edit

Hey. When creating articles please make sure they are no orphans and are linked from another article and/or the episode/film they're referenced in. Thanks. Tom (talk) 21:49, October 26, 2015 (UTC)

Changing articles to categoriesEdit

When you're changing articles to categories, please consider the incoming links and the usage of said article before doing so. When you arbitrarily redid Maneuvers and tactics, you a) broke the article, and you b) broke about 50 incoming links. -- sulfur (talk) 12:53, December 15, 2015 (UTC)

Categories on redirects Edit

Could you please explain why you're removing all categories from many of the redirects? They were deliberately applied to the redirects for valid reasons (at least in most cases). Please stop removing them unless you have a good reason for doing so. Thanks. -- Renegade54 (talk) 16:36, December 22, 2015 (UTC)

I do have good reasons. Please list specific examples where you diagree. Kennelly (talk) 16:38, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
Saying "good reasons" isn't a good reason. Also, you're removing perfectly valid categories on some of these things. Why? -- sulfur (talk) 16:50, December 22, 2015 (UTC)

The categories are on the redirects so that they show up in the category listing(s). The category listings are like an index to our article pages. It doesn't matter if the redirect has the same category as the article it points to... it's still a valid term and deserves to be categorized. We've just decided that either we don't have enough canon material to justify an article page for that redirect, or it's already covered on the page the redirect points to, or it's an alternate term for the subject of the article it points to. -- Renegade54 (talk) 17:03, December 22, 2015 (UTC)

Also, you may have noticed that when you made similar edits to redirects back in November, those edits were reverted then by several other admins. You should have taken a hint from that and, at a minimum, opened up a discussion on the topic... not just gone back and reapplied your previous edits. -- Renegade54 (talk) 17:14, December 22, 2015 (UTC)

Links to disambiguation pagesEdit

Just a heads up note, but careful on links that go to disambiguation pages, such as "reactor" on the Helium article you recently edited. -- sulfur (talk) 17:10, January 12, 2016 (UTC)

Red links Edit

Just want to let you know that red links, you've recently removed some by saying "never used", could also origin in okudagrams, personnel files or anything else only "seen" in the episode. These terms would not appear in the script of an episode. Tom (talk) 17:18, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure they don't, since very similar terms were used in dialogue like quantum theorist instead of quantum theory, for which someone incorrectly created a red link. But feel free to prove me wrong. Kennelly (talk) 17:28, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

If you're pretty sure, ok. I thought you found a way to check all screen references. ;) We'll see if the terms will ever be created again. Tom (talk) 17:39, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

Indenting on talk pagesEdit

Indenting stays consistent for each responder. So if you are the first person in a conversation, you never indent. Please see MA:TALK for details. -- sulfur (talk) 15:45, February 10, 2016 (UTC)
