Welcome to Star Trek Answers!Edit

Welcome to Star Trek Answers, TrekFan1984. Thanks for contributing! I hope you join in and ask or answer some more questions. You can find the new questions on the WikiActivity page. If you need any help, have a look at Help:Wikianswers. -- Sulfur (Talk) 2012-02-26T04:30:02

Deleting pages Edit

Thanks for marking pages that need to be deleted. To save yourself from creating a talk page simply to mark a page for deletion, you can put {{delete|type reason here}} in the page that needs deletion. The deletion template invites those who might disagree to comment on the talk page, but if no one does, all the easier. 31dot 02:44, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

When you type it (thanks), just put it in the article itself and not the talk page. 31dot 10:13, May 6, 2012 (UTC)


Thanks 31dot for explaining the deletion process. I'm trying to get removed any obvious non-Trek questions or duplicates that show up near one another. BTW any good instruction pages on how to delete, redirect, merge ect on Star Trek Answers? I have lots of Trek knowledge but my computer skills are somewhat lacking.

There seems to be some help here, though as we go on we may want to add to it or otherwise change it when we figure out what we need there. I can tell you a couple things; you have to be an admin to delete a page, as well as to merge them(because it requires deleting a page) You can redirect a page by typing this at the top(if no one has answered it yet): #redirect [[type destination page title here]] 31dot 09:41, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Redirects Edit

Just FYI, a redirect is done by typing the following, #redirect [[Redirect target page title here]] at the top of the page. (not the web address, just the title) Thanks for doing that page, BTW. :) 31dot (talk) 21:30, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Please do redirects as I indicate above- thanks 31dot (talk) 01:31, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Klingon Template Edit

Just FYI I have created a template much like the general question redirect page ({{subst:red}}) but more specific to Klingonese questions that we get all the time, which can be used by typing {{subst:Klingon}} as an answer. With this at least it will prevent a question from being recreated (like the one you noted today). 31dot (talk) 03:46, January 28, 2014 (UTC)

When using it please remember to put "{{subst:Klingon}}" otherwise it does not work properly. :) 31dot (talk) 07:28, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

Deleting pages Edit

I truly appreciate your work in discovering pages that should be deleted(please keep doing it); but I might suggest that you simply tag the pages for deletion with your reason; posting on the talk page only creates another page to delete. If someone actually objects to the tag, they can start the deletion discussion. Thanks again for your help 31dot (talk) 23:47, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome, I'll start adding my reasons directly to the page itself. TrekFan1984 Ends (talk) 01:13, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

Adding cats to old questions Edit

I wonder if there's a way you can add those categories to old questions without them appearing on the main page, I keep having to stop myself from replying to 2-3 year old questions that weren't fully answered.-Cpthunt (talk) 21:00, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think there is. Adding a category is the same as any other edit. It might be worth sending an email to Wikia to ask, but I think that's the answer. 31dot (talk) 21:25, November 25, 2014 (UTC)
 I am going to stop adding categories to random questions for a couple of weeks until either of you can get an anwer from Wikia.  Perhaps categories can be updated, but not show up at the top of Answered / Edited Questions category.  Please do let me know your results, thanks.  TrekFan1984 Ends (talk) 00:06, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
Does it still appear if you check the Minor edit box?-Cpthunt (talk) 20:07, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
Yes it does, I just attempted to add a category to a randon question using the Classic Editor & even checking the Minor Edit box moves the question to the top of the list.  TrekFan1984 Ends (talk) 21:15, November 26, 2014 (UTC)

Reply, RE: Kes question Edit

Actually, that wasn't my edit, I checked the history, and that paragraph was added by an anon user.  it looks like they tried to add it to the top of the page for some reason and forgot to put space between it and my answer.  I'll fix it anyway.-Cpthunt (talk) 05:05, May 27, 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure, It does appear that adding the redirect tag to a question removes it from the Answered list on the front page, so I'm not really sure if that's the solution we're looking for.  They may be repeatedly asking because they can't find their original question.-Cpthunt (talk) 18:53, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Samal Genesis Edit

Sounds fine to me, I'm getting tired of telling that guy to stop asking.-Cpthunt (talk) 18:33, August 11, 2016 (UTC)

Linking to wiki pages Edit

Hi, I've noticed you posting a few bad links lately.  I think it's because you're trying to post wiki links in external link mode.  To post links to pages on the same wiki, you need to click the "To a wiki page" bubble in the add link window, or alternately, you can create a link by putting two brackets on either side of a page's title. like this [[Example Question]] or if you want to display something other then the original title, you can type it like this [[Example Question|Custom Link]].-Cpthunt (talk) 08:15, August 21, 2016 (UTC)
