Please review the image use policy. I reverted the picture of Enterprise, as you replaced a canon image with a noncanon one(from Star Trek.com). I also deleted your image of the Delta, as personal/fan created images are not permitted.--31dot 00:27, October 25, 2009 (UTC)
- Please read 31dot's comments closely above. Do not mix non-canon images (those from novels, books, video games, etc) with canon information. Your latest upload of Kira and a Bajoran phaser from The Fallen is one such non-canon image. It is perfectly fine on the article about the video game, but not exactly suitable on the Bajoran phaser page. Also, when uploading these images, please be certain to cite them and license them properly. The image use policy is a good resource to read for such information. -- sulfur 14:10, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
Please also make sure images you upload are of good quality. Your Riker image you uploaded is very poor, and will likely be deleted. Please post here that you have read and understand the image use policy so we know you have read it.--31dot 18:51, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
- Indeed, as you have clearly shown an inept understanding of our image use policy.... --Alan 19:07, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
I am terribly sorry for any inconvenience I've caused. I have neglected to read the Image Use Policy. I understand Your standards now and will do my best to follow them. Sorry about that! --Ensign Tylok
You state you are sorry, but then you have made little effort to follow the policies that have been laid out. If you have any questions about them, don't hesitate to ask another user or post a question to the relevant page. If you continue to disregard the policies here you risk being blocked.--31dot 23:55, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
I am not attempting to be defiant, (no pun intended) but i'm new to this wiki stuff. i'm still figuring things out.--Ensign Tylok 00:11, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
What episode/movie was Thoranide gas mentioned in, and in what situation? It would be nice to have a little more info than what is there now.--31dot 22:34, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
- Actually, It was mentioned in the Video game DS9: The Fallen. It is a gas streaming out of the external exhaust port of a Cardassian weapons facility on Has'Terall.
Please keep in mind that video games are not canon, and as such we do not create articles about things only found in noncanon things, such as books or games. Please review the canon policy.--31dot 23:31, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
Please keep in mind that links to noncanon fansites are generally not appropriate for the main section of articles. There may be instances where they can go in an External Links section at the end, if they provide some sort of insight into canon information and are more than just a fan-created site.--31dot 22:21, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
Oops, sorry! --Ensign Tylok 22:27, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
