If you'd like to learn more about working with the nuts and bolts of Memory Alpha, I have a few links that you might want to check out:

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.

Are you planning on adding that template to pretty much every "in-universe" page? If so, you may want to talk to one of the admins that has a bot and have them do it instead, rather than filling up the "recent changes" with the minor edits. -- Sulfur 23:12, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

I intended to yes, if there is an easier way to do this, I am all for it. Who would I need to contact to ask about the bot? --The Doctor, 23:15, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

I'd recommend talking to Kobi and/or Cid about the matter. They can likely direct you better. -- Sulfur 23:20, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Memory Beta Edit

Please do not take the opinion of one disgruntled member as the opinion of all, or even a large number, or even a small number of us. I have a great deal of respect for what you guys do at your wiki. The only reason I myself do not contribute there is that I do not have any of these novels, and not that many of the games, and therefore do not have the knowledge. What you guys do is not less "real" (how can two things that are both fictional be more "real" than one another anyways), just covering a different area. --OuroborosCobra talk 00:07, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Welcome back! Edit

In regards to Sulfur's comment above about using a bot to automate the MB links: although there are many articles that can be linked, it's obviously not one-to-one (at least not yet!), so if you do want to automate, I think the bots can work off a list. -- Renegade54 08:14, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome back :-). If a bot could create a list of links that would be excellent and save a hell of a lot of work for all concerned. --The Doctor 08:17, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't think the bots can create the list, but rather they'll work from a list that someone creates. In other words, if you create a list of MB articles that should be linked to from MA, the bot could add those links for you rather than you having to do it manually. In addition, the edits wouldn't (normally) show up in the Recent Changes listing. -- Renegade54 08:27, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

User:Storymaster Edit

Thanks for the info! We'll sure be careful now. He's very close to being blocked anyway and all his stuff will be deleted immediately. Have you watched "The Shakespeare Code" yet? Immensely looking forward to that! :-) The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jörg (talk • contribs).

External link vs links on MAEdit

Just as a point to note: If there's one link, the section is titled "External link". If more than one, "External links". So if you're creating such a section or adding links to one, just keep that in mind please. Thanks. :) -- sulfur (talk) 11:07, March 3, 2017 (UTC)
