- Naming conventions provides guidelines on how to name a new page that you may want to create.

- How to write a great article is a list of suggestions that can help you put together an article that might end up on our Featured Articles list someday.
- See the user projects page for current projects of our archivists, or help us to reduce the number of stubs.
- Look up past changes you have made in your contributions log.
- Keep track of your favorite Memory Alpha articles through your very own watchlist.

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!
Thank you... I think I joined the community a while ago when the list was forming --Vice Admiral Colorge 08:04, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- ViceAdmiralColorge, just a note to inform you that personal images are not really allowed to be hosted on Memory Alpha, as it uses the finite disk space that is otherwise reserved for all the images that go with normal articles. If possible, could we please ask that you host your image on a different website? Thanks in advance. --Alan del Beccio 08:10, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Do you know how to link an image from my Yahoo photo album to here? --Vice Admiral Colorge 08:12, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Yeah, I was going to say that. Otherwise you just add the web addess 'as is' without any brackets or other forms of wikification and it magically appears. --Alan del Beccio 08:38, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Kewl, now can someone delete the picutre of myself I uploaded? --Vice Admiral Colorge 09:17, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I figured out how to use an image from the Flare sci fi forums here but how do I resize the image... if I can at all. --Vice Admiral Colorge 17:17, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
