Copying from the STEUEdit

We seriously discourage copying from the STEU and Memory Alpha as they use different template systems and have different goals to what we have. And a copied article from the STEU with no non-canon information and no effort to format it to our style, just seems a bit pointless. --Dr. John Smith 21:01, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Deleting informationEdit

Please do not delete content from articles -- your changes to Broken Bow have been reverted, this is your first warning. -- Captain MKB 15:24, 24 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I think you forgot to add a citation to Iceland ... what novel, comic or game mentions Iceland? Please tell us! -- Captain MKB 13:51, 29 May 2009 (UTC)


There's a more correct way to categorize images using the imagesource template, would you mind using it? -- Captain MKB 02:48, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hi HOmesun, just checking if you got my message. I want you to know I'd rather you not code the categories the way you have been. Can you answer? -- Captain MKB 03:08, February 8, 2010 (UTC)


Do not copy text from Memory Alpha. This is your secondwarning since 2007. -- Captain MKB 19:09, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I'm Working Here!Edit

Homesun, it may seem helpful, but please please don't fiddle with pages while I'm working on images for them. It's confusing, and might mess my edits up. Thanks. BadCatMan 14:13, March 20, 2011 (UTC)
