does anyone know when memory alpha began
- A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....oh wait. Early 2000's is when this started.--Obey the Fist!! 19:22, March 26, 2010 (UTC)
Please read both Linking to episodes and films and the manual of style for your articles. Ensure that you use full sentences and proper capitalization. These things are very important. -- sulfur 13:17, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
- Trek, I have to repeat what sulfur wrote above. Thank you for your contributions to Memory Alpha but please use correct grammar, punctuation, capitalization and full sentences when creating or editing articles. Also, be sure to add all relevant categorical and in-page links. Thanks.--Obey the Fist!! 12:56, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
When creating new articles, a single sentence is not sufficient. It's a waste of everyone else's time, especially those people who have to clean up the article after you. If you have nothing more to say about an author (for example) than "X is the author of Y", then don't bother. Do some research on the author. Expand the article. For example, please take a look at what I was able to do with the Marc D. Giller article with five minutes' worth of research. -- sulfur 13:07, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
i did do research but i could find any more information (Thetrekinator 13:17, March 30, 2010 (UTC))
Trek, thank you for all of your recent contributions to Memory Alpha. Please make every effort to utilize the Preview button when making new articles or edits to exisiting articles to make sure the follow are correct: Grammar, Punctuation and, most of all, Capitalization. It is essential that every proper noun is capitalized. The correct spelling would be Lieutenant Commander Tuvok, not lieutenant commander tuvok. By not capitalizing your words it means that others must spend extra time correcting simple mistakes. Just use this as a way to become better at typing and writing.--Obey the Fist!! 12:52, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
does anyone know what PNA stands for (Thetrekinator 10:12, April 1, 2010 (UTC))
