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.
Please be careful when changing quotes. Even if a quote is factually inaccurate, such as in counting years, you cannot change it to "accurate" if the actual thing the person said was wrong. The quote has to be how the person said it. --OuroborosCobra talk 21:36, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
- Again, please stop altering the quotes just because they seem to conflict with what was established in canon, since such alterations will be (and have been) reverted. The quotes must be written exactly as stated in the dialogue of the episode, otherwise it becomes inaccurate and pointless; it is no longer a quote. Just because the dialogue appears to be incorrect does not mean you can change it to be correct; what was said was said. There is no changing it. --From Andoria with Love 09:18, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
- You've done it again, three years later. Don't change dialogue from episodes. A quote means just that... it is quoting something exactly. The date stated may be incorrect, but the quote was what was said. -- sulfur 17:59, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
It's a April Fool's day joke. That's why it has nothing to do with Star Trek. --Golden Monkey 17:06, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
I would suggest that you review MA:QUOTE. Memorable quotes should not be more than one or two short lines; if you need more than that, then it is not too memorable. The Memorable Quotes sections should not contain entire scenes or passages; it is "memorable quotes" not "memorable scenes or speeches". I have protected the page, if you feel you need to discuss the issue, then do so on the talk page. Threats of "you will not remove this" are not helpful and will not be tolerated. 31dot 20:29, March 29, 2012 (UTC)
