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.
- The above named user is the most currently available administrator to contribute to Memory Alpha; their signature was automatically added by User:Wikia. If you have any immediate questions or concerns, you may contact that user through their talk page.
Star Trek Into Darkness articlesEdit
Please do not create skeleton articles with no information in them simply to be the first one to create them.
If you cannot fill out some of the information, do not create an article with only a sidebar. That is not acceptable here on Memory Alpha.
- I'll restate what Sulfur said; don't create articles just to create them, they need to have some information in them other than a sidebar. 31dot (talk) 14:52, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
Stardate 2260? Edit
Hi! Is this number superimposed, mentioned or logged in the movie? I haven't seen STID yet, but online discussions seem to indicate that the only explicit number is 2259.55. The table of stardates isn't a timeline – it contains datapoints from reasonably offical sources, so if 2260 is derived from something like "One Year Later", it's not actual data. --126.96.36.199 16:56, May 19, 2013 (UTC)
Kirk mentions "a year had passed" since the incident with Harrison near the end of the movie. I don't want to spoil anything for you. Jkirk8907 (talk) 17:16, May 19, 2013 (UTC)JKirk8907
Just FYI, when you sign your posts on talk pages, you don't need to use the Signature button and type your name- just the button is sufficient, as it posts your name for you. 31dot (talk) 09:10, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
Jkirk8907 (talk) 10:37, May 21, 2013 (UTC)okay thanks.
Please take a moment to read the image use policy, in particular the parts about image categories and naming files, as "File:Stid-t5-46.jpg" isn't a good file name, while "File:James T. Kirk, 2259.jpg" is. Thanks. - Archduk3 06:06, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
Renaming pages Edit
Please note that sidebars are not replacements for material in the article. In the case of Thomas Harewood's article, please leave the BG note in the article. Do not remove it because it duplicates information in the sidebar. -- sulfur (talk) 18:38, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
