Fixed the issue, responded on the Admin Noticeboard. Have a good afternoon, Titantalk 02:20, 19 April 2017 (CDT)


Whoops! I protected a bunch of templates last night. I was trying to only do ones which were not necessary to be editable. Fixed it though. Let me know if there are any others that need to be unprotected. Titantalk 10:30, 27 April 2017 (CDT)

RE: Assimilated Torres Stats

Hmmm... I did not close and then reopen my game, just noticed that ship ability was not there at level 30 and I took a screen shot in case my edit was questioned. How on earth do you figure that stuff out? Do you open and close your game before entering anything into the wiki? (no-signature) Manawar (talk) 13:57, May 6, 2017‎ (CDT)

Take a look

Hey, there will never be an obligation to do anything as an admin, basically its just to allow you to have additional tools, speciically "delete". Only real requirement is if your going to be inactive for an extended period of time (0 edits for over a month), let me or anyother Bureacrat know, so we can temporarily remove your rank for security reasons.

Just promoted you to Admin. Please let me know if you have any questions. Titantalk 01:08, 21 June 2017 (CDT)

Mission Names (Episode/Distress Calls)

Hi Middlehead, Please see my post under the Community Portal and comment/vote. Thanks and have a good afternoon, Titantalk 02:22, 12 July 2017 (CDT)

Passive Ship Item Stats

Hi Middlehead!
I noticed you used {{skill|acc|}} on some item pages. While this will result in an incorrect icon and link (=colored icon, which means something different), I really liked the idea of adding an icon here.
So I extended the {{skill}} template with new keywords for passive ship stats, which will now show the correct white icon, and also link to a more useful place. See that page for examples.
Consequently, I changed your edits to now use {{skill|passiveacc|}}, resulting in "Accuracy Passive Accuracy Stats".
Just letting you know. Cheers, --Crunch (talk) 16:33, 24 July 2017 (CDT)

Crew ATB table

When creating the ATB table, don't leave blank lines in it. It looks nice when you're editing, but it messes up the formatting of the table. I fixed Admiral Picard and Alidar Jarok so you can look at both of those for examples of what I mean. I spent about an hour last night trying to figure out why the blank lines mess up the formatting, but couldn't fix it without removing all of them. --Darxide (talk) 14:16, 29 July 2017 (CDT)

Effect of Starbase bonuses on crew data

Aside from the lv100 stats DB gives us, we have to rely on player-submitted data for all crew stats. But the fact that many players are in fleets brings into doubt the reliability of submitted crew skills for levels below 100. So far, my solution is rough: divide the displayed in-game skill by whatever the bonus happens to be (e.g, with a DIP bonus of 1%, I divide the displayed base by 1.01). This can only give us an approximate number. I'd like to ask other editors if they have any thoughts on how we accommodate starbase bonuses? Ashenjuniper (talk) 18:48, 3 September 2017 (CDT)


I noticed you've changed Ilia's immortalized SCI base from 1211. I don't believe the character has had a covert build change. It seems like you actually have a 1% SCI bonus, which would explain the difference (1223÷1.01=1211). I'd like us to make sure that the info we enter takes starbase bonuses into account, so we can have a "proper" skill number to work from. Ashenjuniper (talk) 02:37, 4 September 2017 (CDT)

"Smart quotes"

Hi Middlehead. Please try to avoid using "smart quotes" (the bendy ones "auto-corrected" by some word processors). They cause inconsistencies (and possibly worse). I've replaced the ones in We Who Are To Die#Epilogue. --Tygra Dax (talk) 01:37, 23 January 2018 (CST)

Crewmembers Category Pages

Hi. Thanks for updating Crewmember Category Pages. But please dont change standards applied in all series Category Pages:

  • Crewmembers placed in the first section and named as "Main crew of... Discovery/Voyager/DS9..." are not repeated in following sections - every crewmember is there only once
  • Last section - "Other characters", where are crewmembers from other series - there are only links to character pages, not links to actual crewmembers.

Thanks for following this standards - you may also discuss them in talk pages, if you wish. --Koba44 (talk) 01:21, 19 February 2018 (CST)

Hi again. Thanks for adding episode info to crewmember page as in the new Polywater Yar. Just please observe the standard, that TV series name (as Star Trek: The New Generation) is in Italics and episode link is in regular font. Also episode name is in quotation marks. Thanks! --Koba44 (talk) 11:00, 12 August 2018 (CDT)

Updating Ship Stats

Hi Middlehead! I noticed you regularly update the ships stats pages. I guess not many people know about this page (as it isn't announced anywhere), but would you be so kind and keep track of the dates on which you added (or checked) any levels of any ship on the Talk:Ships page?
We're trying to keep track on that page which ship stats have been confirmed as "current", as there is no way to easily track that otherwise, and as each player usually has access to the stats of only one level for each ship.
Just add the date to any particular level of any ship that you confirmed, corrected, or added to the ship pages. They are sorted alphabetically in the source.
The most important entries are the ones with "??", as they haven't been checked since the last announced ship overhaul in Dec 2016. But if you like you can of course also update the other dates, color-coded by the time since they were last checked - however, this is only relevant to catch unannounced DB changes/fixes to the stats.
Once DB adds new ships, they will have to be added to Template:ShipStatsLastConfirmed (and Template:ShipsNav). Just tell Titan, Darxide, or me, and we can update that, or you can update it yourself.
Thanks a lot! :o) Cheers, --Crunch (talk) 06:45, 8 April 2018 (CDT)


Hey Middlehead, just promoted you to Commander. That should allow a few additional tools for you to use. Thanks for contributing to the wiki! Titantalk 01:57, 13 April 2018 (CDT)

Would you tell me what I'm doing wrong on my Crafting Table edits that you keep undoing? TY, Joesage2 (talk) 15:03, 10 May 2018 (CDT)


I noticed you renamed "Infinity" page to "Infinity (Planet)" page without redirection. I understand this needed to be done, but please correct all links to that page BEFORE you rename and delete it. Otherwise you are crippling the wiki with creating broken links. Thanks. --Koba44 (talk) 09:14, 5 October 2018 (CDT)
