Please take a moment to read the image use policy. All images uploaded to MA need a proper image licensing template as well as citations. Images without an image licensing template or citation will be removed from articles and are subject to deletion. If you have any questions about how to add the requirements or why this needs to be done, feel free to ask. - Archduk3 19:02, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
- i was not quite sure how to set up the license nor how to say where i got from. if you have any suggestion please offer it.--CC-1990 19:12, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
That image is from the book cover to Old Wounds, as seen on the file description page where you most likely got it from. this link, the same one as above, will bring you to the image licensing template, where there are instructions on how to use it. As mentioned below though, since MA only contains canon information, unless you have some other use for this image, we most likely won't keep it. - Archduk3 19:25, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
Non-canon information in articles Edit
Please note that Memory Alpha articles only include canon information. If you are interested in contributing information from non-canon licensed Star Trek works (such as from games, novels and comics) you may want to check out Memory Beta. Thanks! - Archduk3 19:25, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
- i thought that it was okay to put that article in since technically this is THE star trek wiki to go to most of the time. Course i do you your point about Memory beta. i just thought that there should be a arcticle on chakotay's sister.--CC-1990 19:32, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
Please keep discussions in one place.
MA does cover non-canon information on the articles for the books, so if you want to add some information about her there, that would be fine, so long as that information isn't directly copied from Memory Beta (because we would have to delete it for copyright reasons). There is also normally a link to the Memory Beta article included on those pages as well, but it seems we haven't done that yet. - Archduk3 19:40, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
New pages and formatsEdit
Please note that "External link" should not have the word "link" capitalized, and please ensure that you format those links appropriately.
