Mirror Phlox

My Bonus Ability says 200% damage. Does it change with number of stars? Mine is only 1 star.

No, the damage values got nerfed a few updates ago, for all crew with this ability. Somebody updated Bonus Ability with the current values, but I guess the crew member pages were not (all) updated. --Crunch (talk) 16:27, 22 August 2016 (CDT)

I see you changed the Mirror Cochrane level 40 stats. Those should be the numbers fully equipped and ready to level up to 50, not the numbers just after leveling up to 40 but before equipping anything. Cheers Capt. Chaos (talk) 15:19, 8 April 2018 (CDT)

Captcha’s

Hi Dlefebvre1701, Would you mind trying to make an edit from a different public ip address (i.e. different network, wifi, cellular, etc)? I suspect the one you have been using is on a spam list (not saying because of you, as ip’s change), but that is my guess as to why you are recieveing so many captcha’s. Nothing has changed on the wiki that could have changed that in over a year, and I have recieved no other reports of this happening, so i am guessing it is an isolated instance of this occuring. Thanks, Titantalk 20:38, 5 July 2018 (CDT)

Crew Head Images

Hi Dlefebvre1701. When uploading crew Head images in the future could you include proper transparency, please? Thank you. --Darxide (talk) 23:11, 4 February 2019 (CST) Dlefebvre1701 (talk) 06:52, 5 February 2019 (CST) I will. How do you make your head shots? I simply snapshot my screen. Do you have a program that grabs them from the game server?

Can you please tell me how to go about creating the crew head's and full body images please? Or is it best if only one person do them? Thanks. --Captain Spirk (talk) 06:10, 6 December 2019 (CST)
How do you open up the character in the game, and where do you get the URL from? Do you open up the crew from the crew slots or from the vault? I am still confused by this. Would you be able to send me a screenshot of the steps via email please, if you can? --Captain Spirk (talk) 21:39, 8 December 2019 (CST)
In the developer tools, how do you go to get the image for the crew? Do you get your image from Cryostasis vault or the crew slots? I need a step-by-step instruction on how to do this. Would it be possible if you could send me this via email? I'd like to be able to post full crew and crew head shots if I get the crew. Thanks. --Captain Spirk (talk) 09:04, 19 December 2019 (CST)
Can you please send me a step-by-step screenshot of how you do this? I am literally confused and stuck. Can you please send me a screeshot to my email address at [email protected] --Captain Spirk (talk) 11:06, 26 December 2019 (CST)
For the full body image and the head images, would you be able to send me a step-by-step procedure on how you do this, please? I would like to see, in pictures, how its done, instead of in written form. I would like the images sent to my email address Captain Spirk. Any help is much appreciated. I am stumped on how to do this. --Captain Spirk (talk) 00:50, 6 January 2020 (CST)
How do you use the UnityPack-master? --Captain Spirk (talk) 12:13, 10 January 2020 (CST)
Hi Dlefebvre1701. When I run the python file UnityExtract, I always get the error message, "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'unitypack'. How would I go about fixing this problem? I am so new to this whole python language. Have I installed unityextract properly or do I need to change a line in the unityextract file? --Captain Spirk (talk) 10:00, 11 January 2020 (CST)

Full Body Portraits

Hello, I am interested in how you get your full body portraits like for Captive Bashir and Niners Worf. The Klingon Jedi (talk) 17:51, 6 May 2019 (CDT)

Would you be willing to elaborate on the methods you use to extract he images from the game server? The Klingon Jedi (talk) 00:02, 7 May 2019 (CDT)
Under where would I find the url for the crew image? The Klingon Jedi (talk) 10:51, 11 May 2019 (CDT)
Found a quicker way to get both the Full body and Portraits images for the crew. Go to the datacore.app website and go to the crew stats section. Type the name of the crew that you want and use the command 'Save As' on your web browser. It is so much quicker than doing it the python way. --Captain Spirk (talk) 11:46, 26 May 2020 (CDT)
Hi, have you been getting your portrait and head images from the datacore.app website or getting them once you get the crew? It looks like you upload the images soon as possible as they are released and I was just wondering. --Captain Spirk (talk) 10:24, 23 September 2020 (CDT)
Now that Facebook gameroom is retired, how do you get your images?
Do you use Steam or a different app?

Template:ItemPage

I undid your edit on that template, changing the CI section back to just PAGENAME instead of {{PAGENAME}}. I used to use it too because it makes editing a lot easier, but one of the admin-admins (I think Titan but now I can't find the comment) asked that we not use that because it creates Wanted Pages. There's already a ton of those things, and every item we create with {{PAGENAME}} adds 3 to 5 more. Middlehead (talk) 11:26, 13 April 2020 (CDT)

Apostrophes

Tygra Dax had changed a few I did a long time ago, when I was doing some edits on a tablet with a bluetooth keyboard. That was defaulting to the curled "smart quotes" and he changed them to straight, because the others apparently cause issues with mediawiki scripts. But the ones Unclebean is using on Dahj's pages are different than what my tablet was doing, so maybe they don't cause the same script interference. Dahj is still in my overflow buffer, so I can't see her item titles to verify what he said about the in-game item names. Middlehead (talk) 09:47, 16 June 2020 (CDT)

It wouldn't be a policy on apostrophes per se, but it would fit under the policy of matching in-game content whenever possible. Like when I made the Cristobal Rios page - I initially made it as Cristóbal Rios because that's how it appears in-game, but changed it when it became clear that the ó broke some profile scripts. I got my A-Dahj out of buffer last night and confirmed that her items do indeed use ’, so I would agree that we should use that on her items unless we find that it also breaks the site. It sucks that some developer decided to be fancy and use ALT code characters instead of normal ones, but it's still not the dumbest thing they've done.
As for a committee, there's really not. The closest thing would be the admin noticeboard, but that's kinda fallen into a cycle of "I don't check it because nobody posts to it, I don't post to it because nobody checks it." The other option would probably just be asking Titan; he's the infrastructure-admin that's still active, he should be able to tell if there's some issue with using ALT code characters that hasn't become apparent to the front-end yet.

Ship Ability info on new crew

I've been getting them from the reddit sub lately, but I know they just clone it from Shan's announcements. I used to take it from the forums myself, but I do a lot of my editing during downtime at work and work finally blocked the forums a while back. I just checked on my phone and I see them in her post now - I'm guessing this was just one of the occasions where the devs didn't give her the full info on time, so she made her scheduled post and edited the rest in later.

Item Pages

Why are you renaming stuff on item pages to reflect the exact name of the page? That just adds another thing that needs to be changed if/when the item has its name changed in game. Titantalk 10:05, 10 October 2020 (CDT)

Using {{PAGENAME}} is totally fine. It shouldnt? add anything to wanted pages, as the pages in that category are only those that dont exist. (i.e. bad links) You are perfectly welcome to update the pages to fix naming issues, or anything else, but changing PAGENAME shouldn't cause any issues and just simplifies copying and pasting in the future or if the item page name changes. That isn't to say its "bad", but unnecessary.
NOTE: using PAGENAME WITHOUT curly braces WILL create a wanted page, as that is no different then typing [[PAGENAME]] This is compared to using {{PAGENAME}} which just gets converted automatically to the current pagename. If the page is in a namespace, like here, then using FULLPAGENAME is required.
Variable Result on this page Description
{{FULLPAGENAME}} User talk:Dlefebvre1701 Namespace and full page title (including all subpage levels).
{{PAGENAME}} Dlefebvre1701 Full page title (including all subpage levels) without the namespace.
{{BASEPAGENAME}} Dlefebvre1701 Page title of the page in the immediately superior subpage level without the namespace. Would return Title/Foo on page Help:Title/Foo/Bar.
{{ROOTPAGENAME}} Dlefebvre1701 Name of the root of the current page. Would return Title on page Help:Title/Foo/Bar
{{SUBPAGENAME}} Dlefebvre1701 The subpage title. Would return Bar on page Help:Title/Foo/Bar. If no subpage exists the value of {{PAGENAME}} is returned.
{{TALKPAGENAME}} User talk:Dlefebvre1701 Full page name of the associated talk page.
Using these variables just simplifies instances of changing the name of a page (i.e. moving a page), using templates that automatically get the name of a page (see {{Crew Page ATS Table}}, which uses PAGENAME in a few spots, or in cases of copying and pasting a page to use when creating a new page.
Frankly, i hate how ItemX is setup. The data on ItemX pages SHOULD NOT be under the Template namespace. They should be on subpages of the item page (i.e. ItemName/1. Then the ItemX template could find that info automatically. But i don't have time (or the interest) in re-writing that template and moving/fixing all the item pages to reflect that. Titantalk 15:24, 11 October 2020 (CDT)
Figure it is worth asking, are you making these changes manually or via a script? If it is by a script (such as pywikibot), then any interest in making a bot account? Titantalk 19:32, 14 October 2020 (CDT)
mw:Manual:Pywikibot is a bot that can edit pages based on conditions, etc. I have never used it so im not sure all the details, but it is definitely more efficent/quicker then a VB script. However it is "so fast" that it can trip rate limits on the wiki, hence the need for a 2nd account for the bot to log into, which would have the "Bot" permissions, which increases certain rate limits.

Mirror McCoy

Hi. I've noticed that some of the numbers for Mirror McCoy aren't correct for his 1-star and min/max values. It seems in some places you used the buffed numbers (with starbase and collection bonuses) instead of the base numbers. If you still have all of the base numbers, could you reverify, please? Thanks. --Darxide (talk) 17:40, 17 December 2020 (CST)

It's all good. Thank you! --Darxide (talk) 14:08, 18 December 2020 (CST)

API

Hey, yes it does have the api enabled (i think). See here. As far as a bot account, only if you hit rate limits or something. Titantalk 18:57, 23 December 2020 (CST)

Item Pages

Hi. So in lieu of continuing an edit war, I thought I'd see if you would clarify for me why you're removing entries I put on item pages for equipment used by Adm. Georgiou? If it's a formatting thing -- like I see now you'd perhaps prefer one line for multiple levels using the same gear -- maybe you could advise me rather than simply removing everything? -- Atticus talk 22:40, 28 February 2021 (CST)

Thank you for explaining. -- Atticus talk 08:36, 2 March 2021 (CST)

Old Martok

Hi. Where is the old artwork of 23rd Century Martok? I noticedyouuploaded the newone, but couldnt find the old one. --Koba44 (talk) 09:55, 11 March 2021 (CST)

I uploaded the old full body portrait today, and no image was there before... --Koba44 (talk) 14:17, 11 March 2021 (CST)
