Duplicate categories[edit source]
Category sort[edit source]
You can't just drop categories into articles all willy nilly - you need to add category sorts. if you're not sure what that is you need to start paying attention, check any article i have corrected, for example -- they all use the DEFAULTSORT tag which you seem to be ignorant of - Captain MKB 13:55, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
Races and cultures[edit source]
All civilization/species articles should have the category 'races and cultures' - DON'T remove it - Captain MKB 12:02, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
Star Trek mapping project[edit source]
I'm Brandon, Senior Community Manager at Wikia. We're working on a new Star Trek project as part of the Wikia Fan Studio. To give a bit of context, Fan Studio is a program where fans on Wikia can be connected with brands from the entertainment and video gaming industries. Fans get to interact with brands and share opinions that could impact final products and releases, or whatever it may be that a partner brand is working on. This project doesn't have a partner brand involved, but it will let you be part of Fan Studio and other future projects.
This Star Trek project is based around Wikia Maps, and participants will be mapping different parts of the Star Trek universe. Participants will get to help decide what we should map as well. It could be the layout of the Enterprise, or Voyager's journey through the Delta Quadrant, or even more light-hearted subjects like Captain Kirk's romantic liaisons throughout the galaxy. Whatever the participants end up deciding. The maps that the project participants create will live on Trek Initiative, plus any other community that wants to can embed them.
- Totally understandable. Thanks for letting me know! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:39, November 19, 2014 (UTC)
characters of unspecified species[edit source]
I gave it some thought and kin d of like the phrasing "category:characters of unspecified species" for the category we discussed. I'm suggesting we move it. -- Captain MKB 04:25, November 1, 2015 (UTC)
