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.
- How to edit a page includes a basic tutorial about how to use our special wikitext code here on Memory Alpha.
- Naming conventions provides guidelines on how to name a new page that you may want to create.
- The Manual of Style is an overview of the basic guidelines for how to format and style your articles.
- 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.
Re: Pete's Dragon Edit
Well that's just dandy. How exactly is it relevant and why are you asking me? While I'm already talking to you, your Chuck Courtney page is considered vandalism. Don't just create pages for no reason like that. Thanks. -Platypus Man | Talk 22:14, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for experimenting with Memory Alpha. Your test worked, and has now been, or shortly will be, removed. If you wish to test your Wiki editing skills further, please use the sandbox, as tests made in the article space will be removed quickly. Please see the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing here. Thanks. Weyoun 22:26, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
One other thing: If you're intersted in doing episode summaries (like "The Emperor's New Cloak", which you've done a great job with so far) check out the duty roster. Actually, two other things; idle chit-chat isn't usually appropriate on MA talk pages, although you're welcome to exchange AIM names or use the e-mail user link if you want to get to know people.

Excessive user pages Edit
Please do not create excessive, needless user pages and subpages, especially ones with no useful content. You get one user page. If you wish, you can create a subpage to help order the contents of your original user page or to store other contents related to MA. Thank you. --From Andoria with Love 02:44, 5 Dec 2005 (UTC)
- Yes, I see no reason why you need to create a second user page when the first is just a link to the second. Try filling up the first one before thinking about establishing a second one, unless you intend to use it as an archive for Memory Alpha related data. Otherwise, we are not here to provide you with personal webspace. --Alan del Beccio 08:04, 5 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Non-Canon In A Mirror, Darkly?Edit
Greetings, I am curious as to why you are placing the In a Mirror, Darkly wiki links in Mirror universe in the non-canon section? Only novels, games, etc. are considered non-canon information. Thanks! - Adm. Enzo Aquarius 18:27, 24 Dec 2005 (UTC)
- Everyone knows Enterprise is non-canon. But I put it in its rightful place (below DS9) now. Roar 18:29, 24 Dec 2005 (UTC)
