Hey, great work on that walkthru you are doing, I was just wondering is this duplication intentional. eg. Engineering Duty Officer and Crem or should the first one be removed? --Lem (talk) 21:56, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

I agree, excellent work. I had forgotten to let you know about the fact that the entire episode's walkthrough was in that one mission sub-page, but you fixed it earlier! Thank you very much for helping out the wiki. Every little bit helps. –TerranRich (ETC) @ 04:53, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Frak, didn't notice the Duty Officer articles. So basically all three are doublicated as are the images. Yeah, I think the former should forward to the later. Btw. great wiki, always a pleasure to work with you guys :-) --RachelGarrett 19:15, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Correction! The BOs are not always named the same. Just played the Tutorial an x-nd time, and now, my Tactial BO is named "R'shee". So better to take the content from Takerra, Crem and Slan to supplement the XYZ Duty Officer articles and delete the former.--RachelGarrett 20:16, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
I have merged the articles and reset the links in corresponding articles, Takerra, Crem and Slan can be deleted.--RachelGarrett 22:05, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Do it yourself! You're now an admin. Congrats! –TerranRich (ETC) @ 22:00, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Heh congrats Rachel! I had a feeling the names might be randomly generated. --Lem (talk) 23:08, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Thx! Now I can stop to bother Lem and boba with my dyslexia. :-) --RachelGarrett 23:53, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Issues with Starship_tier_chart page[edit source]

Hey Rachael, First off, excellent 1 year anniversary video you did. Really enjoyed it. Secondly, I've been working on the ship charts to include all the ShuttleCraft and such, as well as all the recent updates & changes Cryptic has been dishing out; thus, I've had to re-upload the ship charts a few times. All the previous versions can be removed. However, the last time I tried to upload the latest changes, I got an error Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32000 bytes) in /home/stowiki/public_html/includes/media/Bitmap.php on line 194

The KDF shipchart has grown to a size of 5902kb and the FED chart is now at 6299kb. I never thought this would be a problem, since the upload limit is set at 12mb. I have dialed back the resolution to about 75% when using jpg compression, but since the chart has so many small details, any more scaling back will hinder it's usefulness. I'm not sure if these details are relevant; it may have simply been an error during the upload.

Let me know if there's anything more you need from me to correct the issue. Thanks, Spidermitch 20:51, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Reply to your message[edit source]

I'll try to keep up the good work :), but I'm not very good at uploading images, so I'll probably need your help there. At the moment, if you look through the starship classes, you'll find that they're are a few missing pictures for ships (shown in 'don't exist yet' red): the Excelsior class/Excelsior retrofit class (Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit); the Koloth Bird-of-Prey and Haj Bird-of-Prey; the Birok Raptor; the VoD'leh class (Vo'Quv Carrier); and the Kar'Fi Carrier. I know they're on the ship tier charts, but like I said before, I'm not good at that sort of thing. Regards, --Omegafire17 18:00, October 3 2010 (UTC)

That's great news. Glad you continue writing for the Wiki. As my Klingon char levels up (currently at level 12^^) I'll add the missing ship pictures. The retrofit excelsior I do not have and I do not intent to buy. But maybe we can grab some Cryptic pictures from the C-Store instead. Regards, --RachelGarrett 18:44, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

File Renamed; old version can be removed.[edit source]

Hey Rachel, I've uploaded a new version of the Federation ship chart, and changed the name to more accurately have FED in the title. This helps me on the back-end keep track of which chart I'm working on and uploading. (Besides, it just makes since now that there's a KDF chart with KDF in the filename!) Anway, please remove all versions of the original chart name. I've already uploaded and updated the Wiki pages and such, so you shouldn't have to worry. Hopefully that's the last time I'll need you to delete anything :) Spidermitch 23:43, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Done. Don't hesitate to ask me or any other mod to help in these things. Regards, --RachelGarrett 08:07, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Mentioned & Linked to from Podcasts![edit source]

Rachel, Congrats on being mentioned on STOked, the JupiterBroadcasting podcast. Hopefully viewers will follow the links they provided in the show-notes, linking back to here and STOwiki will gain a bit of traffic. Anyone who wants to see what they're giving kudos to Rachel for (an awesome job she did with Dabo statistics!!!), check out Ep 52 of STOked.

Also, I got my own props on the Federation Ship Tier Chart from ST:OKast, another online podcast. Of course, this was before I created the KDF Ship Tier Chart, so that wasn't mentioned. Give it a listen here: ST:OKast #10 --Spidermitch 19:25, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

New here...[edit source]

Hello! Seeing you're a common creator and editor of pages here, I thought any questions would be best asked to you. I'm not clear on hos to use STO wiki, but I'm determined to find my way about. Are there any pages that may give me information on how to format pages or any such things?

Also, I like the recent work on the mission Infected, although, I have found an efficient and simple way of completing the mission and would like to add it. Am I allowed to add content advising a player of where to stand in order to hide from the enemy or keep the "aggro" down and such things?


What's nu?[edit source]

Sorry couldn't resist. I looked for a needs update template, but didn't think to look at the short names. Thanks for adding it. --Swordmage 18:20, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Have fun, heading out[edit source]

Just to let you know, I decided to abandon ship before I had to pay my monthly fee. Just not the game for me, but working on the wiki (one of my standard activities) made it fun. Good luck. --Swordmage 04:31, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

It was a pleasure having you around. Thanks a lot for a ton of contributions. Take care. --RachelGarrett 07:50, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

There is a Dot we don't need[edit source]

Hello, when clicking on Recent Changes there is a square dot left of RSS in the Operations column. It serves no purpose so I'm requesting you to remove it, please. I lack the expertise to do it myself. Markonian 21:39, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Problem is, as an admin I cannot fix that. That would have to be TerranRich, but it has been hard to reach him lately. BTW, what browser do you use? I don't see the square in Firefox. --RachelGarrett 21:54, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
This is the dot I'm meaning. It's not obstrusive, I just thought it could be removed. I'm using the Windows browser. BTW, have you tried to send a mail to TerranRich? Maybe he can promote you if you reach him on more time. Markonian 22:15, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
In fact this week I have asked him about taking care of the Wiki while he is occupied with other stuff. No response, yet. If I get access to the Wiki's skin, I'll see what I can do about the bulletin square. But I know that the Internet Explorer tends to produce rendering errors. So there is a chance that there is nothing wrong with the page. --RachelGarrett 22:20, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

New Accolades[edit source]

Moved to Talk:Accolade/Story Accolade/Klingon Sector

I found these three accolades that opened up with the Breen Front, but the icon has not been added yet. Breen sector.png MatthewM 12:26, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing those. Accolades updated accordingly. --RachelGarrett 14:06, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Deleting files?[edit source]

Hey Rachel, I was trying to figure out a way to remove a file that's no longer needed. The first Ship Tier chart I uploaded [[1]] was named with a version number. I now know that you can upload new revisions and it automatically takes the original file name. Really cool! (I'm new to this whole Wiki thing, but I'm trying!) Anyway, I've uploaded a new chart (this time without a version number in the filename) but I can't figure out how to remove the old files SpidermitchShipChartv2-6.jpg & SpidermitchShipChartv2-7.jpg... Maybe I don't have the permissions needed to delete, which is cool: I shouldn't have to go deleting files now that I've uploaded the file sans version number. If I'm overlooking it, please let me know. Thanks!!! --Spidermitch 26 August 2010

Done. As a User you cannot delete anything. I'm trying to get more admins in, since right now I'm the only one to take care of stuff like that. Keep up the good work! Please use the signature function at the end of discussion posts: ~~~~. This will automatically generate a link to your user page and the time and date of your post. Regards, --RachelGarrett 17:04, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Adding Deferi faction symbol/template[edit source]

The Deferi have their own symbol, consisting of three intersecting rings in a vertical formation. It can be seen in the Accolade/Story Accolade/Breen Front "Tipping the Scales"-Accolade and on the Deferi Social Map above the center where the bridges meet. As I don't know how to rip icons from the game, I would like to ask you to create a Deferi icon template, please. Thanks. Markonian 22:50, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Faction Generic.png
There is actually no Deferi faction icon in game. If you select any Deferi, they will use the "Generic" faction icon. So the only way to get the logo would be to carve it out with a graphics editor from the accolade icons. Give it a shot. Regards, --RachelGarrett 07:06, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Faction Deferi.png
Using Windows Paint I have carved out the icon from an accolade medal. It's far from being perfect, I know. And now the question: Do we stick with the Generic or the Deferi icon? Markonian 08:54, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
I once had a friend who also thought that MS Paint was the crown of digital image manipulation :-D. Supprisingly well looking though, I have to admit. Well, now that we have it, I think it should go at least into the Deferi article. If it should be added to the faction related templates (missions, systems, planets, npcs, ships, etc.) would be a topic to discuss on the Project:Community_Portal. That's something everybody should have a say in. I'm only here to help and moderate. Regards, --RachelGarrett 09:03, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Images Needed[edit source]

Can you add the icon for Field Generator (its needed for Engineering Consoles article)? Also, space powers "Grant Diplomatic Immunity" and "Quantum Slipstream Drive" are needed, and I can provide images of what those look like if you need that. --MatthewM 10:45, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Console - Engineering - Field Generator icon.png
You mean this one? Has been there since mid August :-) Uploaded the new File:Grant_Diplomatic_Immunity_icon_(Federation).png. --RachelGarrett 11:38, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Can you add the new icon for Ability: Reverse Shield Polarity and Ability: Quantum Slipstream Drive? --MatthewM 20:29, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
That might take a while, but I will. Regards, --RachelGarrett 21:16, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Could you add images for the Retrofit Forward Phaser Bank / Retrofit Aft Phaser Bank (same pic of the blue phaser) and for '<damagetype> Dual Pistols' (they may have new icons for them on Tribble, but it'll show two pistols instead of the one). --MatthewM 10:42, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do. Right before my holiday trip, my PC crashed really hard, so I may not have the software to do this quickly. But I'll try :-) --RachelGarrett 10:46, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
I got icons of the Retrofit Phaser Beam Arrays. However, I did not find any new icons for dual pistols, other what is already on ground weapon. --RachelGarrett 12:13, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Could someone get an image for the Borg Worker Drone page-I am unable to get access to the Cure to get one-Worker Drones are only available in the Cure. Could you also check the stats I posted for the Worker Drone & Elite Tactical Drone-I has a friend playing the Cure PM me the stats. --Cyrano.Jones 15:09, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
I currently don't have time to run the Cure myself. I'll try to remember about that, when I play it the next time. Add the Template:MissingImage to the top of the article, so all people know, it is on the ToDo list. In fact, that is what Matthew probably should have done as well. Doh', I've been setting a bad example here :-) --RachelGarrett 15:22, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Old Editor Returning[edit source]

Hello. I used to edit this wiki back when STO first got off the ground, but then real life intruded and I haven't had the time. I have some now, though, and I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of an area that needs work. So much has been done in the time I've been gone that I'm a little overwhelmed and don't know where to start contributing again. Thank you! -Kinetic1028 14:53, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Glad to have you back! Right now we are expanding a lot into Klingon gameplay, User:Markonian has done a lot of ground work there. Also we have had some exceptional new featured pages like the Trophy, Player title and Accolade articles. I think, User:MatthewM can tell you where we stand with these. Of course it is always great to have the new weekly episode covered by an article close to release. We can also use new guides and revamps of existing ones. I've wrote a little something about an idea here. I would like to polish the top- and second-level articles reached through the main-page and sidebar. Other than that we are still lacking a ton of systems, planets (most are stubs), maps and screen shots thereof, NPCs and Enemy types from early and mid-game. So that's my two cents. And as always, it is totally alright to just have fun and enjoy your time playing and editing :-). So welcome back again! --RachelGarrett 15:16, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Multiple Edits[edit source]

I've noticed that you and a couple of others do a ton of edits in quick order. And I wonder how do you do so many at one time? Are you saving the edits for later? --Omega X 18:12, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

It depends. Sometimes it's simple copy and paste, like adding or removing categories from similar pages. E.g. today I did fix the "Borg Starships" category by replacing it with "Borg starships". That can be done very qickly, if you open all corresponding articles in one Browser Tab each. Another example are the U.S.S. Bohr, U.S.S. Oakland, U.S.S. Kelvin and U.S.S. Montreal: Their articles can be merely identical.
And then there is also the case when I work on several unrelated articles at a time in several Browser Tabs each and when I'm done, I'll just save them all one after another.
But if that is not your work flow, stick with what you feel comfortable with. What I and others do may look faster in the change log, but actually we have to take some time to actually write that stuff :-).
Regards, --RachelGarrett 21:46, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki bug[edit source]

When uploading a large number of PNGs, one file kept getting the message regardless of number of attempts: "Files of the MIME type "application/x-php" are not allowed to be uploaded." Upon some searching online I found that this the software was finding false positives, but a patch was created a little over a year ago here. Who would be best to pass this along to for implementation? --MatthewM 02:47, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Thx for researching this. I'll ask Alex to fix it. --RachelGarrett 09:52, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Shield Guide[edit source]

Thanks for featuring the shield guide on the front page. I feel compelled to finish it now. --Zutty 18:05, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

STO Wiki Skin[edit source]

Here I am, contacting you like you asked on Twitter!

Carl 19:39, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi I saw a new skin for STOwiki on Twitter a few months ago, can't seem to find it now but I remember it looked great. Anyone have the link?--Cyrano.Jones 20:33, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Link is!/carlbooth/status/14005421345869824 Carl 23:10, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the links, they look great you should try and get them working as themes.--Cyrano.Jones 07:21, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I can't find your e-mail address anywhere - I've sent you mine on Twitter Carl 17:13, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Problem with Shipchart page[edit source]

Hi, I tried to access the ships page on the main pge earlier today I couldn't get in, I tried again now; I still can't get in. What's wrong with the page? P.S. Are you in need of any more Admins? User:Cyrano.Jones

Hi Cyrano. Probably the file is too big (at least that is what the error suggests). I do not own the server infrastructure, so I cannot grant you access to it :-). I'll contact the folk, who can fix this. Regards, --RachelGarrett 00:09, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I wasn't asking to be given access to the servers, I know you don't have that power. If you need anymore admins I'd be willing to help though--Cyrano.Jones 20:32, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Cure Walkthrough[edit source]

Hi, Do you mind if I get started on the Cure Walkthrough? I've looked it up on this wiki already but someone has already started the page but not finished it. Half the information they've given isn't too helpful. I can finish the page, but I'll need to delete everything on it first is that OK? I've already put up a banner to tell people I'm editing the page is this OK? The ETA for the new Cure Walkthrough is Sunday 13-Tuesday 15 February 2011-- Cyrano.Jones 20:30, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

It's a wiki. You do not need to ask for permission. We are grateful for every contribution :-) --RachelGarrett 22:40, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
The Mission: The Cure (Federation)/Walkthrough is now ready for use. Have a look at it, you may want to add it to the home page along side the other walkthorughs? --Cyrano.Jones 11:55, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Mission: Relief Effort[edit source]

Hello, I would like you to review the page again and give some more suggestions on improvements please. --Dukedom 12:41, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Admin Spaces[edit source]

Hi, Rachel are there any free admin spaces on STOWiki, I'd be happy to fill them. I've done almost as many articles in the last month than you have in a year, my work has been featured on the home page twice, is there anyone else more qualified than me?? What if both you and MatthewM decide to leave-then the wiki will break! P.S. Iedited the Reman Science Officer Page last Sunday-It's still listed as a stub! What other work needs doing to it? --Cyrano.Jones 17:03, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Please compare Reman Science Officer Candidate with Tactical Duty Officer, then you know why it is still classified as stub :-). I am not sure, if you are aware of this, but I was the only admin on this Wiki for half a year, and worked hard to get it back on track after TerranRich left. In many ways I am still working on that behind the scenes. We are dependent on Curse, and I need to work out any bug we have or feature change/improvement of the infrastructure with several liaisons on their end. So I do not think it is fair to simply compare article counts.
I really appreciate the work you have been doing on the Wiki, but I feel uncomfortable with promoting you so quickly. There are some "finer points" regarding Wiki editing and our guidelines, and I believe it takes time to live and breathe their "spirit" so to say. As admin you would have to instruct and guide other users, and it is not only about writing as much as possible. Also, there is only very little you cannot do as User, that you could as Admin (deleting pages and editing the front page are the only things I can think of). When MatthewM and I meet, we discuss which users could become admins. That way, we recently asked Zutty to become an admin. So we have the future of the Wiki on the radar and I am enthusiastically watching your contributions. Don't call us, we'll call you ;-)
If you need pointers, what could be done next, take a look at the "Under Construction" section on the front page or Special:WantedPages. Regards, --RachelGarrett 10:09, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Discussion concerning STO canon[edit source]

Hi Rachel,

there is a discussion between User:Zutty and me, User:Markonian, whether non-ingame contents from the "Path to 2409" should have their own articles. Please, could you share your thoughts about the topic with us? (The discussion can be found on my talkpage under "Star Trek Canon" and Zutty's under "Star Trek Online Canon". --Markonian 22:27, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Guide: Canon alien race builds[edit source]

i have posted some new races in the talk section of this page. Romulan, Kressari, Karemma, Vorta and Jem'Hadar. I will try to recreate some more races from TNG and DS9. --Duckman 16:11, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Good work. When you have the time, try to add them to the article page using the other races as a template. I created the portraits in the tailor at their default orientation. Would be great, if we could keep them consistent. Regards, --RachelGarrett 16:16, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
sure, no problem. i will try to add them, but there are some issues about races like the Jem'Hadar, because it's nearly impossible to recreate them. they look really stupid when you try to recreate them because of the limitations of the charactereditor. I will only add races who can recreated to 90% or more. everything less will be an insult to hardcore fans. --Duckman 16:24, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

The whole thing looks great. Nice job Duckman--Curmudgeony 18:26, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Auto Category Creation w/ Templates, Help?[edit source]

As you can tell from my edits, I tend to work on the categories articles are in. I hope I haven't enraged anyone with my edits, nor puzzled anyone too greatly with my categorizations. :)

The question I was hoping to resolve is, how do you edit or revise which category an article is in when the template auto generates a category? For example, there's a currently redlink Galaxys category and a few other ones like that.. Additionally I want to put the Class F shuttle on the Federation Starship Types category in the F's not the C's but since I suspect a template is throwing it in Federation Starship Types category as a C (b/c its a Class F shuttle) I'm not sure how to tweak it so it shows up listed under the F's. Help!--Curmudgeony 18:26, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

First of all, you do an amazing job with categorizing the articles. Regarding your question: You can go into the template and change the category there. However, you need to be patient with the changes to "tickle" through. Changing a category in a template will create a job on the server to update all articles and that takes a lot of time. The shuttle thing is a bit more complicated. I think you need to add a #switch statement to the respective template to specify an exception for the shuttle. Regards, --RachelGarrett 07:34, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

June will be a fun month[edit source]

The Duty Officer system will add hundreds (thousands?) of doffs and mini-missions, so STOwiki has its work cut out. The first new Season in half a year -- exciting times! --MatthewM 00:55, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

I completely agree. However, I'm currently enjoying my first holiday in like two years. So I'm currently sitting in a Starbuck's far away from home and won't be back befor June. Have fun, I'll be back soon :-) --RachelGarrett 01:53, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Enjoy and have fun! STOwiki will be in good hands. I'm just so excited for the Season 4 goodies coming soon, not to mention the new toys tonight -- playable fighters and the first attack pet. :) --MatthewM 05:18, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
On a side note, sometime this week a change (affecting but not originating STOwiki) changed the "wikitable" settings from having a transparent background to an all white one. This, in effect, makes the text difficult to read and would require going through every table page on the wiki to fix it if not done from the point of origin (the hosting server's default wiki settings?). --MatthewM 04:24, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi again! Reporting using a crappy Motel WiFi. Try to override the template by editing [Mediawiki:Cavendish.css]. If it does not work, try contacting bmclemore [a7] curse [d07] com. Might have something to do with the guys finally moving us to a more current MediaWiki Version, so we can start using Carl's new skin. Regards, --RachelGarrett 04:30, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
It appears User:Meavic created his own version of Cavendish.css in the past 48 hours that was identical to the old version but with several changes exclusively about the wikitable class. Suspiciously, Meavic had created the account immediately prior and hasn't made any contributions except to that page. I was able to edit the mediawiki version of the CSS file so that the black backgrounds have returned. --MatthewM 10:36, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
Back for the action. Conveniently, my PC crashed, but I'm in the process of restoring the system to become productive again. Many thanks to you, Zutty, and the rest of the team for the ton of new stuff on the wiki. I have a lot of catching up to do :-) --RachelGarrett 15:05, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
It's not just the wikitable class. The search boxes (.mw-search-formheader and fieldset#mwsearchoptions) also have CSS setting the background to a near white color (#f3f3f3 and #f9f9f9, respectively). There are probably other elements of the wiki UI with this problem, but I see no common class to allow for an easy fix. The offending declarations are in /skins/common/shared.css, leaving me to suspect an update of the MediaWiki software is responsible. I'm going to poke around for more UI elements that need a background color override, but for now, the CSS to correct the issues I've seen so far:
.mw-search-formheader {
  background-color: transparent !important;

fieldset#mw-searchoptions {
  background-color: transparent !important;

TablePager th, TablePager td {
  background-color: transparent !important;

TablePager th:hover td {
  background-color #111111 !important;
(It occurs to me that transparent may be a better choice with the placement of the search boxes.) Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 20:07, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Those four rules above should cover all the cases I saw on special pages. I can't think of where any others would show up, so here's hoping that's all of them. Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 20:27, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, just checked our Special:Version. It seems, that Curse has updated our MediaWiki after the crash on the weekend. Thanks for hammering out the quirks. Regards, --RachelGarrett 20:34, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Just a reminder that, as a regular user, I can't actually put the CSS in to fix these problems. I can only look at MediaWiki:Cavendish.css :) Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 14:06, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Is putting those lines in MediaWiki:Cavendish.css supposed to fix the search box being all-white? I'm not seeing it. --MatthewM 20:52, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Oops. Missed a hyphen. :/ (Fixed above now.) Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 04:11, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Working now, thanks! --MatthewM 05:10, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeap, thanks! --RachelGarrett 08:05, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Khitomer Accord Walkthrough[edit source]

I have just completed the Mission: Khitomer Accord (Federation)/Walkthrough-check it out. I've also updated the Mission: Khitomer Accord page. Do you think it would be possible to feature the walkthrough on the home page like you did with my Cure Walkthrough? P.S. I have not been on for months due to the fact that my examinations have been going on for the last 6 weeks and I had to study for them before that. --Cyrano.Jones 12:06, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Advertising a 'new' walkthrough that will become obsolete soon doesn't look like the brightest idea to me. --Dukedom 12:30, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
I disagree. So far, we had no walkthrough and the STFs will be revamped "some time after S4", whenever that is :-) Thx Cryano, it's up. --RachelGarrett 12:37, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
I wasn't refering to the 'revamp'. There are quite a few borg changes that will make it onto holodeck with season 4, interlink nodes gone, adaption etc. pp Not that I don't apreciate the work done, it's just a little badly timed. --Dukedom 12:44, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Until there is new content, I don't see a problem with the guide being featured until that time. It is up to the users to keep articles updated and I welcome those to prepare an update to the article for Season 4 when that hits. --MatthewM 12:48, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
MatthewM is correct, I'll be updating both my walkthroughs once the Borg changes are added to Holodeck.--Cyrano.Jones 12:51, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

YouTube Videos[edit source]

I have made some useful videos for the Star Trek Online First City & Earth Spacedock-giving tours of respective areas. Can I post these in their STOWiki pages? Is there a way to embed YouTube videos on STOwiki-if so how? If not would it be possible to set YouTube posting up? Videos found [2] and [3] -Cyrano.Jones 17:52, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

I'd suggest adding these as an external link at the bottom of the article. --MatthewM 19:08, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

STOked 74[edit source]

Hi RachelGarrett, just saw you on Jupiter Broadcasting's 74th edition of "STOked" - congratulations! I've also downloaded the Demo Record and tested it, it's pretty cool. Out of curiosity, are you German? Have a nice weekend! -- Markonian 10:50, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Pssst! It's a secret! ;-) Glad, you like the tool. I need to spend a lot more time working on it (and the Wiki of course). --RachelGarrett 08:05, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

New Skin[edit source]

Moved comments to Project_talk:Skin_Update, so the skin author sees them.

Contact with our host[edit source]

Do we have anyone in communication with Curse staff right now? Any contacts for configuration issues or bugs that come up? I want to get a sense of the general protocol since I'm likely to end up trying to debug any such issues that come up. Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 19:02, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

I've send you an in-game PM with the e-mail contacts. Thanks for taking care. Regards, --RachelGarrett 20:40, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Editing the torpedo launcher template[edit source]

I would like to edit the template of the DPS of Photon and Quantum torpedo launchers to add missing values and correct typos in existing values. How do I do that? ErisTheVorta 20:45, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

When you go to an article like Photon Torpedo Launcher and click to edit, at the very bottom of page is list of templates used, such as Template:Shipweapdmg/Torpedo_Launcher. --MatthewM 23:05, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
What MatthewM said :-). Regards, --RachelGarrett 23:41, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Thankies so muchies! ErisTheVorta 10:46, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
