*The title of 'Master and Commander' is an old naval term used, if my source is correct ( and I believe it is), to denote the commander of a naval vessel. Since Starfleet used just about every naval term I have heard, from enlisted grade structure and officer rank structure, to ship positions (port, starboard, forward, aft, bow etc.) to ship structure (bridge, deck) etc. I just thought it fit.

Fan Fiction Wiki

As per your forum posting, the place you want to check out for fan fiction for Star Trek is the STEU. -- Sulfur 00:46, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Audio Uploads

When uploading audio files, please make sure to format them properly. Please see Image:That Old Black Magic.ogg for an example of what an audio file requires. Also, when adding them into an article, use the {{audio}} template, such as {{audio|file=It Can't Be Wrong.ogg|text=Listen to the Seven sing "It Can't Be Wrong"}}. This will set things up properly to show everything in the proper manner. -- Sulfur 02:10, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

I asked you three weeks ago to format your audio file uploads properly. You still have no done so. here are the changes I had to make to your upload this morning to bring the format in line with the required formatting on MA/en. Please take the time and effort to format any future uploads properly and in a similar manner. -- Sulfur 12:13, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Tal Celes Edits

Firstly, let me apologize for spelling your name wrong on the Tal Celes reversion notice I posted. As to why I reverted your edits, I hope you are not offended. But the added detail you put in, as I explained in the notice, made the article read more like an episode summary than a straight informational piece about the character, which is what a character article should be. Also, you used a lot of contractions, like shouldn't etc. These should not be in an encyclopedic article at all. Hope you understand. :)

Please note that there's nothing against contractions at all. Now, having said that, it does look a bit better without them. Also (and this bit's aimed at EyesOnly primarily), please don't just revert huge edits like that. Bring them up for discussion first. It's pretty obvious to me that you just reverted it back to your own edit (including some of the ghastly, over-long titles) without bothering to read or look at the discussion page. And yes, character pages should concentrate on the characters, but listing events that the character engaged in? Not so bad really. That's what makes a character page. Perhaps the current version is a little overlong and has some non-essential details. Talk about it on the discussion page. That reversion was a little over-bold. -- Sulfur 19:20, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Titles

Points taken, but:

  • Operations Manager was Kim's official position, as described right here on MA. The position of Operations Manager has its article here.
  • The title of 'Master and Commander' is an old naval term used, if my source is correct ( and I believe it is), to denote the commander of a naval vessel. Since Starfleet used just about every naval term I have heard, from enlisted grade structure and officer rank structure, to ship positions (port, starboard, forward, aft, bow etc.) to ship structure (bridge, deck) etc. I just thought it fit.
  • Seven of Nine was the head of astrometrics, with sensor analysts under her. Head of Astrometrics = Chief of Astrometrics = Chief Astrometrician (As in obstetrics/obstetrician or mathematics/mathematician). True, the title was never used on the show, but sometimes it is necessary to call her position on the ship. That title is as good as any you could call her position.

As for contractions, as an admin told me once, MA is an encyclopedia. Look up any encyclopedia: Britannica, World Book, Colliers etc. You will not see any contractions.

There is always a method to my madness, sir. :)

In response to all three of those:
  1. Sure. It's his position. Doesn't need t show up in every article that mentions his name, and indeed, it shouldn't.
  2. If it's not used in the series, don't use it on here.
  3. See point #2.
General point being EyesOnly -- don't put those awful titles everywhere. They don't need to be strewn across the entire wiki. Sure, putting them in their own article (as in the ones that actually show up on the series) isn't so bad, but they don't need to be everywhere else.
As for contractions, yah, they don't look great, but it's better to edit to correct them than to revert all. 'Nuff said. -- Sulfur 20:25, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

(To Sulfur) Very well. But I assure you this is not going to turn into an edit war. See the Tal Celes Discussion page. Edit war? What do you take me for, anyway? I'm a grown man, not a child. Relax.– Watching... listening... 20:33, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
