Hey, appreciate the work you're doing, but could you consult the Memory Alpha:Image use policy please? I'm currently adding descriptions, categories and copyright notices on your images. --Alientraveller (talk) 14:23, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

Where exactly are you obtaining these images from? 31dot (talk) 14:30, May 19, 2013 (UTC)
I will again ask you to state where you are obtaining your images from, as there is some question as to the legitimacy of at least some of them. 31dot (talk) 00:49, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
Hello 31dot, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I get the images from, mostly Google image search, but I also look at some videos online and screenshot a freeze frame. I haven't taken a look at the Memory Alpha's image use policy, but I will. If there's any discrepancy concerning fair use issues and how I could correct them, please let me know. --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 02:13, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
This. Read it before your next upload. - Archduk3 18:44, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
When you post here that you have read MA:IMAGE, I will lift the block. If you have any questions about it, you may also post them here. 31dot (talk) 19:33, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
To 31dot, I have read the MA:IMAGE several times and I truly apologize if I had violated any regulation during editing. --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 19:41, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
What's important here is that any images that are uploaded have the proper information on them, including the correct license, source and a brief description. If you have questions or need assistance with figuring out how to do it or what we need, please ask someone. It may help you to look at some of the existing images to see what we are looking for. 31dot (talk) 19:46, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
To 31dot, Just wanted to thank you for lifting the block and I'll try to be more responsible with the images next time. --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 03:33, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Where did you get this image? - Archduk3 09:05, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
Also, do NOT use underscores in the file name or (generally) px sizes with thumbnails when adding images. The general rule of thumb is "monkey see, monkey do", so anything you add should be formatted like everything else already on the page. Thanks. - Archduk3 09:14, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
The image I got of Spock on New Vulcan is a screenshot I took of a video of decent resolution that I found online, which I thought wouldn't hurt to put on the Spock page, but apparently not. Why is it i never seem to get it right with the photos on this wiki? --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 13:24, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, mainly because we actually follow US and international copyright law, which is why we are so strict about these things, and why adding images from illegal sources put the entire site at risk. Do not do that again. - Archduk3 07:30, June 2, 2013 (UTC)
Understood. Know that I don't mean to endanger Memory Alpha, I really did thought I formatted the picture accordingly. Anyway I'll try to make sure this doesn't happen next time. --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 07:37, June 2, 2013 (UTC)
We need the actual source for this version of the image since it isn't a screenshot. Also, I need you to check the "Disable Category module" box in the "Editing" tab in your preferences (located in the drop down menu in the upper right corner "under" your user name) so you can properly see and add image categories. - Archduk3 20:32, August 1, 2013 (UTC)
Since the image you uploaded is blow up, re-cropped, and missing the watermark, it shouldn't be used, and the watermark is the reason we generally didn't use images that were on the DrexFiles, because you aren't really suppose to remove that. We also still need the original source, which in this case seems to be the DrexFiles article. - Archduk3 21:27, August 1, 2013 (UTC)

Inline templates

Monkey see, monkey do. Use these and save everyone else the time and trouble updating them later. - Archduk3 00:33, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for inputting the proper symbols for the changes I made, which was attribution to the poem Capt. Kirk quoted in The Ultimate Computer.

However, we need to switch the date back to where I initially placed it. The captain quoted that poem in 2268. Placing the date after the poem implies that was when the poem was written.

- No problem--FaNbOy1988 (talk) 23:35, November 4, 2013 (UTC)


...should be capitalized like Vulcan, Klingon, etc. - Archduk3 01:48, December 2, 2013 (UTC)


Read it. You've been here long enough that you should be formatting ship names correctly. - Archduk3 05:48, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

- I don't understand, what did I get wrong?--FaNbOy1988 (talk) 09:40, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Ship names should always be italicized. What you type is always USS ''Enterprise'', never just USS Enterprise. - Archduk3 23:09, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

- Oh, ok my bad, I just thought it seemed unnecessary to do so if the whole sentence was already italicized.

Images (redux)

Just as an aside, when you're uploading images from books, comics, etc, please ensure that you mention the title of the source of the image. That's really important so that people can verify the image/etc. Thanks! -- sulfur (talk) 17:59, April 10, 2014 (UTC)

- Oh, I forgot to add the parenthetical source on the photo, my mistake. --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 03:26, April 11, 2014 (UTC)

Visual editor?

Are you using the visual editor, because your edit to the Enterprise aircraft carrier to add the quote ended up breaking a whole lot of episode links by wrapping them in "nowiki" tags. This seems to be something that happens with the visual editor. -- sulfur (talk) 13:26, November 7, 2015 (UTC)

I think I used the source editor on that one. Didn't mean to screw anything up. --FaNbOy1988 (talk) 22:36, November 7, 2015 (UTC)

FA review project

Hi FaNbOy. I am currently in the process of going through the FA list with a view to bringing the article's statuses up to date as some of them haven't been looked at for over ten years and have changed quite significantly in that time. Consider it a little project of mine. As an established user, I was hoping I could ask you to keep an eye on the Memory Alpha:Featured article reviews page from time to time and perhaps weigh in on any discussions there to help speed up the review process? I'm not asking you to necessarily agree with anything I post there, just trying to encourage discussion on the subject. Thanks in advance. --| TrekFan Open a channel 17:18, March 27, 2018 (UTC)

Hey TrekFan. Sure, no problem; I look into it. Than You.--FaNbOy1988 (talk) 05:12, March 29, 2018 (UTC)
