Reference works Edit

"Greetings!" (Data, Star Trek: First Contact)

I would like to make a suggestion to add The Klingon Dictionary to the list of "Reference works created by production staff". It fulfills all required conditions. -- Klingonteacher (talk) 13:30, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

I'd like to note that there's currently a discussion on MA/de on whether to allow "Klingon spelling" from this book to appear in all sorts of articles. Even if we add this book to that list (I'm currently not sure if we should), it shouldn't mean that these information snippets can be added to articles here. -- Cid Highwind (talk) 14:20, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

Danke, dass du mir in den Rücken fällst! (no offense, just kidding ;-)

Yes, I admit that it was me who started that discussion, and I never intended to keep that a secret fact. Actually, I figured that it will not be easily possible to change the Resource Policy, so I didn't want to bother starting from that point again. On the other hand it seemed that the Klingon Dictionary might be at least accepted as an additional resource, so that at least we could add the Klingon information to the background information. That's the only reason I requested to add that specific book to the list.

To be honest though, I will start the request about using the klingon spelling at a different place ;-) Please no comments about that here. -- Klingonteacher (talk) 17:43, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

I, personally, have no issue with Klingon translations (etc) being used in the BG notes and only using the translations in the main text when they were used on screen. In that sense, it's much like any other piece of licensed material in that we can present it as "Book X stated Y". -- sulfur (talk) 17:47, October 24, 2013 (UTC)
