STB stardates

The table of stardates collects them as datapoints with calculated calendar dates — not the other way around. The contribution I reverted speculates that the FYM started on 2260.132 and that Kirk celebrated his birthday on 2263.04, based on mission day 966 and Kirk’s birthday in STB, but we don’t know if those were the actual stardates. If we start calculating in the other direction, the purpose of the table is lost. I’d already explained it on the Talk page. —-PreviouslyOn24 (talk) 16:37, January 26, 2018 (UTC)

A thank you

Since Enzo Aquarius doesn't appear to be around any more, I just wanted to pass my thanks onto you and your user page for bringing this into my life. I can't believe I hadn't found it sooner but it really brightened my day! So...thanks! --| TrekFan Open a channel 03:32, February 4, 2018 (UTC)


Hi Arch, I noticed some annoyance on your par with the use of jpeg. If there is a reason why this format should not be used it might be good to remove the format from the upload page for images. You also mentioned an issue with underscores from which I am not sure what exactly you were trying to say. Otto Vonbacon ❯❯❯ Talk 23:23, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

The list of "permitted" formats is for wikia as a whole, not MA, and can't be changed locally. While .jpegs can be uploaded, they shouldn't be, since you can simply change the file extension to .jpg on the upload page. As for underscores, they're lazy and create extra work later, since they mess with search results. For example, searching for "1 2" on a page with "1_2" won't return a result. - Archduk3 23:30, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the underscores since I see them in pretty much every single image name. Of course I do not know to what exact file or place your comment was directed since it was only visible in the history and not particularly directed to something. So please if you can when something happens that is not up to snuff put a quick not on my talk, that way it is easier for me to avoid something or alter my work method. Thanks for talking the time the help me out. Otto Vonbacon ❯❯❯ Talk 01:28, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

If you could point out where you're seeing underscores, that would help, as they are generally a rarity outside of a few templates and, obviously, web addresses. - Archduk3 05:40, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

As I can only think of me having used them in image names instead of spaces I can give you any such example. I have, to my knowledge, not used them as actual underlines. example:File:Cult of the pah-wraiths symbol.jpg. Otto Vonbacon ❯❯❯ Talk 17:02, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

I don't know why you're seeing underscores instead of spaces then, so all I can say is you should replace underscores with spaces, as I have in your example, when placing files in articles. - Archduk3 17:27, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

Ok, now at least I understand why we were having a miscommunication. So even when you remove the underscores I still see them in the address bar of any browser. But when uploading an Image I will be sure to not have underscores when uploading in the hope that that fixes the issue. If for some reason underscores are still there let me know and please remember that I am not deliberately putting them in. Otto Vonbacon ❯❯❯ Talk 18:03, February 7, 2018 (UTC)
