On another matter, how is the episode list going? I keep adding little bits to the one I'm working on ("[[The Arsenal of Freedom]]"), and I'm almost finished. This could be a great addition to the site. :-) [[{{ns:user}}:Zsingaya|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Zsingaya</span>]] <sup> [[User talk:Zsingaya|''Talk'']]</sup> 22:02, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)

:Oh, I think you misunderstood my intent. I menat "Mr. Vulcan" to be a nickname, not an insult - like Neelix calls Tuvok.

Songs

For your pages of songs, could you italicize each line, so the page looks like, A British Tar? --Defiant | Talk 00:19, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Thank you. --Defiant | Talk 00:26, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Vedek Dukat 00:43, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)
No problem, and there's no need to apologize - you didn't do anything wrong. (And when you do, it often seems more like you're slightly unsure of how to edit pages than you mean to cause harm). --Defiant | Talk 00:47, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Re:Thanks

Thank you for your help with the lyrics stuff. I like to think of my contributions as manure... Sometimes it can get really ugly, but they help MA grow.

LOL!!! No problem. ;) I don't think there's anything wrong with submitting articles that aren't formatted to standards -- it gives others a chance to do work on something. :P --From Andoria with Love 01:00, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Addressing vandals

Please don't encourage vandals with such comments as "Welcome back Mr. Vandal". It doesn't help the situation any. Thanks, Alan del Beccio

Exo-psychology

Sorry about the removal of your info, that was an accident. It usually says there was an edit conflict, but it didn't this time. I tried restoring it with a summary note apologizing, but apparently you saved the exact same thing before me.--Tim Thomason 01:12, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Oh, don't sweat it. I figured. :) --Vedek Dukat (Talk) 01:14, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Internationalisation

Hi there. What is the point in having a swedish version of MA? You might not be the right person to ask but since you brought it up with me I thought I could ask you. Everyone in Sweden speaks english (more or less fluently) and it seems to be a superfluous task. Tryffel

So, who should I ask about it? One of the founders of MA or someone else in charge of the Swedish page? Maybe it would be a good idea to cancel it if its in a bad shape and noone really cares to upgrade it? No point it if thats the case, ey? Tryffel
You've been helpful. It's not that important to me. I didn't even realise there was a swedish version until you refered me to it. Maybe I'll contact the high command with my comments and await further instructions. Tryffel
Thank you so much. That is an offer I probably will take advantage of! I like it here. It's so warm and friendly. And all this wonderful information about the coolest nerdy subject makes me all fuzzy inside. Tryffel

Sisko 197

I wasn't informed that 197 and 1997 had been made into the same number, last i checked they were different? but see talk:program Sisko 197 to see why i removed the comment from the anon. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 22:43, 19 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Babel templates

Hi there! I'm not sure if you've noticed, but it happens on my userpage as well as yours, the babel-template thingy isn't aligning with the table format as well as most other things on MA usually do. I've tried integrating them into my wiki-sidebar, but it keeps chopping the ends off the boxes, until I refresh the page. Does this happen on your browser as well? BTW, congrats on the whole missing episode list, I'm so glad there's a collaborative effort. Zsingaya Talk 19:43, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

If you mean the 3D-ish borders the tables normally have, yes, but other than that it loooks fine on Opera. I don't know about IE or Firefox. I'll check it out, but in the meantime maybe you can take a screencap to show me what you mean. And thanks! That really means a lot to me. :) --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 19:47, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)
File:Babel problem.jpg
here you are... can you see, the edge of the table overlaps the edges of the templates, cutting off the text. If you refresh the page, the problem resolves itself. Maybe its just a browser issue. :-) Zsingaya Talk 19:56, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Yup, looks like you're using IE all right. That's the problem - IE never works the same twice for me. Try opening it in Firefox or Opera and it should look fine, plus you'll get the borders you've been missing. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 20:01, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

You know, you're right, the whole of MA looks better in Firefox. I don't use it very often, because I like the way I've set up my BT Yahoo Broadband browser. But, now I know, that if I ever want to use MA, I'll just load up Firefox. :-) Zsingaya Talk 20:20, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

The problems with Babel display might have something to do with another template that the German edition has that we haven't created yet, its a "container" that puts all your Babels in tables (i rhyme). once i read more about them, i'll probably be ready to deal with this. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk
Honestly, I have no idea how the coding works - I just copied the format of existing templates and copied the text from the Commons link. I did notice it makes the table slightly wider (225px as opposed to 200px I believe) than the normal sidebar is. Dunno if that can be avoided without looking squashed. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 03:18, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)


Hey, would you mind translating Template:User de-0 to sound like Template:User en-0? Having a template that says "This person doesn't speak the language" sounds pretty awkward. :) Thanks! --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 19:54, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

In fact, the German version already says "insufficient" knowledge, not no knowledge, so it's ok this way. --Memory 20:08, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

French MA

I'm the french admin and I just want to say that contributions must be objective. So by saying that fr:Benjamin Sisko is the best captain is not the best way to begin with the french version. I'm already dealing with people pro- and anti-ENT, people who love and people who hate DS9... I'm trying to convince them to work together, then if you say something like this it certainly won't help. It's the best way to begin an open war. Although I don't know you, I think it is really surprising of you for contributing like this, seeing how much you contribute. Philoust123 22:02, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Hi there, Vedek. I've joined the ranks of Users who're branching out to different languages. At the moment, I'm trying to translate the Charles Tucker page on the French site. I must admit to using the google-translator to get the backbone of the article, but it makes plenty of mistakes that you have to go through afterwards. What do you think, so far? Zsingaya Talk 22:39, 24 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Well, I'm pooped and on my way to bed, but I'll open it tomorrow and take a look. Philoust would probably be a better candidate for the job, however -- the French I know comes from the French-Spanish border area, where people often mix the two languages. When I added my little note to the French Sisko page, the heading I put was "Le Background". :P --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 07:18, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Talk pages

Hey, Vedek. Just to let you know, talk pages -- even user talk pages -- should be used for idle chit-chat, especially the excessive conversation you had with Bentbrain. That said, your reversion of Bentbrain's vandalism is greatly appreciated. Thank you. :) --From Andoria with Love 18:32, 27 Nov 2005 (UTC)

They should? :D No, I know what you meant and it's no problem. Just doing my civic duty... Kind of wish he hadn't been banned for such a long period though. 96 hours? That's 4 days. Oh well, can't say he didn't earn a ban. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 19:02, 27 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Friendly advice

Hey there, Vedek. I know you're just being a joker around here, but I would probably advise against calling Alan anything other than his name. In fact, its best to keep personal feelings about users off the site, otherwise he might find enough evidence to ban you for a bit, to teach you a lesson. Just remember this phrase made by Lord Acton in the late nineteenth century: [1]. If you want to chat about how much you disagree with any of the admins, I'll give you my email and you can say whatever you like.

On another matter, how is the episode list going? I keep adding little bits to the one I'm working on ("The Arsenal of Freedom"), and I'm almost finished. This could be a great addition to the site. :-) Zsingaya Talk 22:02, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
