Image format Edit

Hello. I'm trying to edit some of the images I uploaded earlier to make them the JPG format, but when I do I'm getting an error saying the MIME type of the destination file is not the same as the uploaded file. I can't seem to change the destination file. How might I go about editing the image so it's a different file format? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 13:52, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

As far as I know, the images must be uploaded again ("replaced") as jpg files and you cannot move them with the current format. Tom (talk) 16:02, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
So would I go to the "File History" section of an image page or do I need to create a new image page for the JPG version of the PNG files I uploaded? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 16:15, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
You need to upload a new image as jpg so we can delete the previous uploaded png files. Tom (talk) 16:20, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Question about talk page formatting. Edit

Hey, I have a question regarding the format of talk pages, specifically related to unnamed humanoids. I've posted several topics in such a page to try to see if the aliens I saw had been seen yet or not. Some of them I'm satisfied haven't been named or categorized yet, while in at least one instance what I thought was a distinct species had already been mentioned on the unnamed humanoids page. Seeing as deleting posts from a talk page is frowned upon, is there a way I can group my topics into things like added species, resolved topics, and uncertain species? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 20:36, January 5, 2015 (UTC)

I don't think so. Talk pages are what they are and what I meant earlier when I said "Personally I don't see a point to fill the talk page of the article instead of adding the information to the article." You can only add a note to the talk page topic that the "unidentified species" was added to the article as you did it here. Tom (talk) 22:05, January 5, 2015 (UTC)
Would it be OK if I removed the images from the talk sections that I've already added as the only reason the images were in the Talk page was to make it easier to see the species I was trying to identify? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 12:24, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
Personally I would say yes. It would make it easier to replace with images of higher quality later. But I think leaving them on the talk page would be better. Tom (talk) 13:38, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Featured article nominations Edit

The FA nomination process is currently being discussed here. Just a FYI in case you missed it in the recent changes. - Archduk3 05:55, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

Erika Biordi Edit

ThomasHL, According to, another word for professor is educator. [1] I wasn't speculating; I was using the English language. Lakenheath72 (talk) 13:37, February 16, 2015 (UTC)

I never heard of and don't use it. I've just checked the page here on MA and it says that every professor is an educator. I removed the category because we don't know if Biordi was a professor who taught students. So it was specualtive. But with the description at the category page here it seems that every professor can be added. So if you want, restore the category but leave the sortkey as it is and don't remove it.

UK Comics coversEdit

Sorry for may english, but I'm frenchman. I found these whitman covers

also you have by example, #40 with Whitman logo

also, you have this page for more information from comic strips

we must found again numbers from 1292 to 1381 for all covers

for Star Trek Annual (Western), these all covers

C-IMZADI-4 (talk) 17:44, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

No problem at all. I think the covers are already uploaded to Memory Alpha and are in this category. Am I wrong? Tom (talk) 19:20, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

someones are with GK logo others with Withman logo. for The PsychoCrystals you have both covers with variants and I didn't see it in MA database. The preceding unsigned comment was added by C-IMZADI-4 (talk • contribs).

Then feel free to upload the missing covers to the articles. Tom (talk) 19:37, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

Ok, I hesitated, for don't upload them twice. I'm going to class them before. thank you for answers. C-IMZADI-4 (talk) 19:45, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

I've contacted User:Sulfur as he is more into comics than I am. Maybe we'll wait what he says. Tom (talk) 19:50, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

Ok, goodnight ! C-IMZADI-4 (talk) 20:12, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

I'd be tempted to say that if the covers are identical other than the publisher's logo, it's not really worth putting them online. A couple of the variants we have up are to show the logo difference, and in one case a price difference. -- sulfur (talk) 00:58, February 24, 2015 (UTC)
