First off, your edit comment comes across as dismissive my own edit comment. This isn't the first time, either, and as Reddit makes clear, I'm not the first one to be dismissed by you. I'll let you address why you feel that is an effective way to build collaborative efforts on a fandom wiki. If you feel being dismissive of peoples' efforts—without providing constructive criticism—then I will walk away and not make any further edits of any type, and will actively encourage others to do so, as well.
Secondly, citations are supposed to be effective. The ST.com was not effective by any means. No where on that site can hyronalyn be found, and especially not with the...citation, because it does not link to anything on that site.--Revanche (talk) 21:28, March 8, 2020 (UTC)
- hyronalin is referenced at startrek.com, here's the link: https://www.startrek.com/database_article/hyronalin
- maybe you should look into these things before you come at me with an attitude. you were wrong and i'm correcting you. you're the problem here - you removed a valid reference -- captainmike 21:31, March 8, 2020 (UTC)
- "bla-bla-bla; tinpot calls the kettle black followed by self-rationalization for its misbehavior and a futile attempt to retcon the edit issue". It's not my problem; it's the wiki's. The problem stems from the consistent lack of tact or sense of collaboration from one over-empowered user. Very much out of sync with what it takes to build a quality wiki, and now there is yet another person with stories to share about poor admin-ship on Memory Beta.
Hi, when you removed the citation from the Hyronalin article, you did not leave any edit commentary. This was an act of vandalism, as an admin did later find the removal of the citation was in violation of policy. There is in fact valid information at StarTrek.com.
Please be aware this is a violation of policy.
Furthermore, your user page contains a statement about my username, made in 2015, which could be construed as a "personal attack" against another user, in this case, me. Please consider these two facts before you take any further actions on this wiki. -- captainmike 23:34, March 9, 2020 (UTC)
- Keep "solving" that self-made problem, mate. Off to this place called TrekBBS, to share my story.
- tell them you couldn't spell it right. it's an amazing story. https://www.startrek.com/database_article/hyronalin -- captainmike 23:46, March 9, 2020 (UTC)
