NPC Rank[edit source]

Rank should probably not be a required field, given that some NPCs don't have ranks - such as the Ferengi merchants who are not part of Starfleet. Flibby 16:15, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Ah yes of course, I will make it optional and the auto cats check for the field before passing the line. --Lem (talk) 16:22, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Lem! I would have done it myself but I'm not good with templates. Flibby 16:34, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
No worries! --Lem (talk) 16:41, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Auto-catigorizing[edit source]

I'm not sure that's such a great idea. For instance, with Miral Paris. She is not only on the U.S.S. Kirk, but on Regulus IV as well. I can't add the other location to the NPC info box, because it messes with the categorizing of the page. Thoughts? <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 19:45, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

This is the first NPC we have had with mutiple locations, this could be dealt with by offering mutiple optional location fields, eg location1 location2 etc, we then use the template to format these locations. This is preferable to users manually using br and cats as it doesn't promote uniformity. --Lem (talk) 14:00, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
That's a great idea. I don't know all the ins and outs of templates. I just mess around till they work. :) <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 17:44, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
I tried, and I failed. You may want to add it :) <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 17:55, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Ok so it mostly works, for some reason location3 is putting it in the wrong place, which I am not sure why, location 2 seems to work though! --Lem (talk) 18:59, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm gonna leave it to let Rich have a look at, I am not sure exactly what his classes do. you can use location2 for the moment though, nothing else is broken as it is all done with if's so the other NPC pages look fine. --Lem (talk) 19:08, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. I'll have to study what you did to see how it works. <span=help title="bobalobabingbong's User Page">~bobalobabingbong -=[ <span=help title="boba's Talk Page">T + <span=help title="boba's Contributions">C ]=- @ 19:50, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Q[edit source]

Could do with a minor addition so it won't classify Q as being in a race of " Qs " if anyone doesn't mind adding that. Ta. --Flibby 00:46, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Done. Also, new "talk" topics go at the bottom. –TerranRich (ETC) @ 03:17, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
