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:
- Our policies and guidelines provides links to inform you on what is appropriate for Memory Alpha and what is not. Particular items of note are the canon policy, the editing guidelines, our point of view, copyrights and guidelines for proper etiquette.

- Naming conventions provides guidelines on how to name a new page that you may want to create.

- How to write a great article is a list of suggestions that can help you put together an article that might end up on our Featured Articles list someday.
- See the user projects page for current projects of our archivists, or help us to reduce the number of stubs.
- Look up past changes you have made in your contributions log.
- Keep track of your favorite Memory Alpha articles through your very own watchlist.
- Create your own user page and be contacted on this page, your talk page.
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.
As much as it pains me to say it, I think the formatting issues are on your end. The articles you are changing appear just fine on our browsers, and are in fact in some cases getting broken by the changes you are making. I'd like to help you, though. What browser are you using, and what screen resolution? --OuroborosCobra talk 07:11, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
- Cobra is right: the [[Category:xxxxxx]] tag can appear anywhere in the article body and it still appears in the same place on the finished page. The MediaWiki software is what does the formatting, and it *always* puts the category line in the same place on the page, no matter what; we have no control over that. -- Renegade54 10:06, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
- ??? huh? I looked after adding blank lines and that seemed to work. :/--Marhawkman 07:19, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
Talk pages Edit
As a tip, on talk pages, please keep your indentation consistent throughout the section you are posting on. For example, if you are the first poster of a section, have no indentation on your first and subsequent posts throughout that section. If you are the second poster, indent once for your posts, and so on. This helps to keep track of who wrote what. Thanks --31dot 03:53, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
- Oh, okay. I usually just indent by one...--Marhawkman 04:08, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
