Please take a moment to read the file use policy. All images uploaded to MA need a proper image licensing template as well as citations. Images without an image licensing template or citation will be removed from articles and are subject to deletion. If you have any questions about how to add the requirements or why this needs to be done, feel free to ask. -- sulfur (talk) 15:23, October 22, 2016 (UTC)

Also be sure to give these files names that are consistent with our existing naming format, perferrably describing what the image shows; the file name you used, File:Screenshot (2518).png, tells us nothing about the image. Also, please attempt to use .jpg file extensions for screencaps or photos. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 03:41, December 11, 2016 (UTC)
And again. Please follow the file use policy linked in the comments above. Images need a description and a citation. Regarding your recent uploads, they need the episode. Tom (talk) 00:36, January 13, 2018 (UTC)
This, again. - Archduk3 14:01, March 12, 2020 (UTC)
File categories are required too. Perfection is not required for writing articles, but you have to get more than 90% of the way for file uploads, or you have to tag the file as missing required information. There are more files than articles now, and they fall under more legal scrutiny, so we have to maintain them better than we do the articles. - Archduk3

Memory Alpha

... is a wiki about anything related to Star Trek. We present information about what we see and hear in the episodes and films. We are NOT Wikipedia and the past tense for in-universe articles is completely correct. Please introduce yourself to the editing guidelines of this wiki before editing an article. Thanks. -- Tom (talk) 18:04, July 10, 2018 (UTC)

Page moves

Please do not fully create new pages and then just delete the text from the old to replace it with a redirect. This is what the MOVE function in a wiki is for so that you can preserve the history of who edited what. -- sulfur (talk) 02:38, March 1, 2019 (UTC)

NCIA-93 schematic source?

What's the source for the schematic you uploaded? -- sulfur (talk) 02:51, March 3, 2019 (UTC)

Read talk pages

You might want to check out talk pages for new articles sometimes. Not that you appear to respond to talk pages. But because of you, the page is now locked, even to non-controversial, legitimate edits, so...pay more attention, please. --TimPendragon (talk) 03:40, March 29, 2020 (UTC)

You obviously don't know how to use them properly, because conversations continue where they were started, not split between the talk pages of two users. This converation began here, so respond here if you must, not on my talk page. The conversation is easiest to follow in one place, and I'm perfectly capable of seeing your replies here, and getting notified if you do reply. Just familiarize yourself with the guidelines, please. You will have a better time of it, and we all will. --TimPendragon (talk) 22:05, March 30, 2020 (UTC)

Twitter info

Please hold off on adding more articles/etc. At this time, a tweet does NOT meet MA's resource requirements. -- Sulfur (talk) 21:38, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Well, alright. I don't see how this wouldn't be any different than pulling the Eisenberg-class off After Trek? It's coming from the same sources, but if you guys need to pull it down, I understand. Appalachia Actual (talk) 21:46, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

After Trek is like a special feature... we're still trying to figure out the social media and newer ST website (which still have errors galore)... -- Sulfur (talk) 21:57, 5 January 2021 (UTC)


Yesterday you created {{Holidays}}. I'm curious to know what your intent for this template was, and furthermore, why it was not created/etc in the same manner as other MA sidebar templates. Thanks. -- Sulfur (talk) 13:13, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Yeah, I was trying to create a new sidebar template to better help format some of the holiday / celebration pages. Since "First Contact Day" was a few days ago, I noticed the article for that (at least in my opinion) could benefit from some cleanup and better structure. It would be nice to see some more sidebars for things like events, and technology pages. Unfortunately, my attempt at creating it didn't go well. I was trying to go off the other sidebars MA has, and... it failed. So, I apologize for the confusion. Appalachia Actual (talk) 00:55, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
