Lara was called a Human in the episode. Furthermore, you're messing up her page with bad formatting. -- Capricorn (talk) 19:30, January 4, 2020 (UTC)

Past tense

per MA:POV everything on MA is past tense. --Alan (talk) 20:57, January 24, 2020 (UTC)

Alpha/beta shift links

Why do you keep removing the links from alpha shift and beta shift? Please stop. -- Renegade54 (talk) 20:43, February 6, 2020 (UTC)

La Sirena

La Sirena is the name of a ship, not a title. Even though "la" is "the" in Spanish, it's sorted by "L", not by "S". Please leave it where it is in the sort order. Thanks. -- Renegade54 (talk) 02:09, February 14, 2020 (UTC)

Multiple edits

Please make use of the Preview button when making edits. This allows you to see what your edit looks like before you save it, which reduces the load on the database and makes the Recent Changes page easier to read. Thanks. 31dot (talk) 21:57, February 23, 2020 (UTC)

This still applies. You're way overdoing it on Rene Picard. --Alan (talk) 17:29, February 26, 2020 (UTC)
Hmm... --Alan (talk) 16:24, August 10, 2020 (UTC)

Red links

And stop removing or piping red links. They have a purpose, they are there for a reason. Just stop. --Alan (talk) 01:37, February 24, 2020 (UTC)

In case you hadn't seen it yet, questions have been raised... -- Capricorn (talk) 23:46, February 29, 2020 (UTC)

Page moves

Follow the guideline. - Archduk3 21:01, March 27, 2020 (UTC)

This still applies. Also, by definion, "a number of things, events, or people of a similar kind or related nature coming one after another" is a series. --Alan (talk) 21:11, May 31, 2020 (UTC)

Datestatus in sidebars

Don't remove it. Just don't. It's a required element when 'Status' is set. And no, it's not always related to the 'death' date. -- sulfur (talk) 14:45, June 23, 2020 (UTC)

Incite tags

Do not remove 'incite' tags unless you cite something.

It's that simple. If you have a citation, add it. If you don't, leave the incite tag up until it has one. -- sulfur (talk) 20:34, June 24, 2020 (UTC)


Stop it. These pages should only link to the model, or if there isn't a page for that the subject. You would know this if you had read any of the explanations for people reverting your edits the last five times. Don't do it again. - Archduk3 18:22, August 4, 2020 (UTC)

Constant edits

There is ZERO reason for you to be making 50+ petty edits a day to a single page, which is absolutely unnecessary and quite annoying. Figure out what you need to do before you do it, then do it once. --Alan (talk) 16:23, August 10, 2020 (UTC)

Unnamed redirects

If you don't understand how they work, don't remove them. Post on a talk page asking for someone to fix them. It's FAR less work for the rest of us to have to clean-up after you then. -- Sulfur (talk) 19:01, August 14, 2020 (UTC)

Blocks will continue exponentially for this, so decide if this is the tower of ignorance you want to be buried under. - Archduk3 04:39, August 18, 2020 (UTC)
^^This is becoming a problem for you again. –Gvsualan (talk) 16:43, 16 April 2022 (UTC)


When a page has the "in use" template at the top. DO NOT EDIT IT UNTIL THE TEMPLATE IS NOT THERE ANYMORE. -- Sulfur (talk) 18:04, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Background characters

When adding links to BG characters, if you aren't going to upload a screenshot, please mention a timestamp in the edit summary so that other editors can look for those characters to screenshot them to document them.

For example, I've seen 3 Taxors in the latest episode (two BG shoppers, and the one with lines, all three documented with screenshots). Where is the third shopper you added?

Also, you added a mention of Vulcans on the planet. Where did you spot those? -- Sulfur (talk) 21:08, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

There is another green Taxor in the same scene as the third shopper, and I saw a couple of Vulcans in the landing area near Little Qo'noS. —- (talk) 21:20, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Where on the screen did you see the Taxor? The shoppers I've seen were when it did the overview of the market (#2), they walked past one after talking to the Klingon selling gagh (#1), then bumped into the male knocking his food over (male).

What's the time stamp of the show and where in the scene is the other? -- Sulfur (talk) 21:53, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

The second green Taxor (#3) can be seen at 10:07, on the left side of the screen, in between a pot or brazier and a red awning. A third green Taxor (#4) can also be seen in that area, albeit from behind. — VaderFan01 (talk) 22:03, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Found them both. Thanks -- see how helpful that gets? :) -- Sulfur (talk) 22:27, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

LD supporting roles

Hi! Just out of curiosity, how did you find out which voice actor performed which supporting character on LD? —Josiah Rowe (talk)

And furthermore -- can you cite them? -- Sulfur (talk) 01:49, August 16, 2020 (UTC)


I know exactly what I am doing, you do not. Stop changing shit I keep fixing. --Alan (talk) 15:23, August 31, 2020 (UTC)

If you cannot communicate properly with other users, then you needn't be here, when I know for a fact I have "corrected" these references a half dozen times. There is a system, believe it or not, and you are saturating the page with all kinds of stupid by mixing everything up.

"Peninsula" is not equal to "Iberian Peninsula" and a proper noun or at least the key term should never be made second fiddle to a generic term; nobody is going to expect to find those terms when they are they peruse for the key terms. They are two completely different things, a classification and an actual thing, not synonymous.

If "sand" was casually referenced as being the same substance as "blue sand", and blue sand is more than simply blue-colored sand, then blue sand should be the key word and sand really isn't a reference to sand, but a synonymous reference.

If "blue sand" and "sand" were referenced in two completely different contexts like 'magic blue sand in a jar' and '(beach) sand in my shoes', they are not synonymous and are two completely different things and are separately alphabetized. --Alan (talk) 16:57, August 31, 2020 (UTC)

Lieutenant jg

Please note that our naming convention is to use lowercase "jg" in Lieutenant jg, not uppercase, as it's an abbreviation for Lieutenant junior grade, not Lieutenant Junior Grade. Lieutenant JG (and Lieutenant Junior Grade) only exists as a redirect for searches, or for somewhere where it's a direct quote. -- Renegade54 (talk) 18:44, October 8, 2020 (UTC)

Red Angel Suit

It looks like you wanted to split this page into two. There is a proper way to do this using the {{split}} procedure. Please follow that because that allows us to properly carry history to where it needs to be, which your method of a straight page move will NOT. -- Sulfur (talk) 17:12, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Likewise, there shouldn't be a need to split or "individualize" these timesuits any more than we would a "regular" spacesuit, or Picard's uniform from Riker's uniform. –Gvsualan (talk) 17:22, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

You should go list your rationale for a split here. -- Sulfur (talk) 17:33, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Links to unnamed pages

Please do not revert links to redirects to unnamed pages to put them to their "unnamed page" links. You've been told this previously. -- Sulfur (talk) 20:22, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

Linking numbers

Hey VaderFan, it seems like some of your recent edits are triggering a Fandom bug where numbers are randomly transformed into links (like here. To help us figure out what triggers this, could you please tell me which browser you use (version as well), as well as the operating system (version included)? That would be most helpful, thank you! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20210808202057 SOAP 14:40, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

For my mobile edits, I use Safari on an iPhone 8 Plus (iOS 14.6). When I’m editing on my iMac (2017), I use Firefox Browser 89.0 (64-bit).

Thank you for this information! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20210808202057 SOAP 07:11, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Html tags

<br /> is correct, <br> is not. Please stop changing them (back) to the incorrect format. –Gvsualan (talk) 13:54, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

removing links

Stop reverting stuff. You obviously have no idea how to use links, nor how to make them useful, as you constantly demonstrate by removing valid links. So stop, it is counterproductive and borderline vandalism. –Gvsualan (talk) 15:13, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

This again. Please ensure that the links in references are the terms used in the episodes (ie "self-aware" vs "self-awareness", "abdicate" vs "abdication"). Don't change them otherwise. -- Sulfur (talk) 23:04, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

"Unnamed X" pages are not the same as regular pages. FOR THE HUNDREDTH FUCKING TIME, by virtue of constantly undoing your bad faith edits, STOP REMOVING LINKS FROM THOSE PAGES. Each section is a page within the page. That has been this way since always, and I not putting up with you shit anymore whatsoever. I already reverted you're removing it once. This is your first and last warning about doing it again. –Gvsualan (talk) 22:42, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

THIS is EXACTLY what I am referring to. –Gvsualan (talk) 16:14, 4 February 2022 (UTC)


...means "in use", and since you obviously didn't read the disclaimer, that means:

This article is currently undergoing a major edit. As a courtesy, in order to avoid edit conflicts, please do not make edits to this article while this message is posted. is used when someone is working on an article and twice now you've managed to ignore that request. –Gvsualan (talk) 15:01, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Edit summaries

When removing segments from articles, please use the edit summary to let other editors know what you're doing. -- Sulfur (talk) 18:46, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

Edit wars

Just. Don't.


Post something on the talk page instead. -- Sulfur (talk) 17:45, 6 March 2022 (UTC)


Why don't yuou look to see where that link goes before just reverting?

Also, when he's referring to them, it's clearly with a context that is covered later. So there's no need whatsoever for the generic reference. In fact, the generic reference just makes a mess of things. -- Sulfur (talk) 14:00, 17 April 2022 (UTC)
