Please go back and correct the 1* stats you posted to Maquis Ro Laren. You have them in the wrong order. -unsigned Middlehead(talk) 15:19, March 9, 2017 (CST), moved from user page Titantalk 21:51, 9 March 2017 (CST)

You posted the Maquis Ro stats out of order - The chart is by primacy (SEC/CMD/DIP) but you posted them in the visual order from her in-game card. If you look at the chart it's obvious, you posted the highest numbers in her DIP column instead of SEC. Middlehead (talk) 08:49, 10 March 2017 (CST)

And I just went back to her page to post stats after a bit of leveling and someone has reordered the chart. So the scores you posted are probably right now, but they've thrown off all the other levels. Middlehead (talk) 08:58, 10 March 2017 (CST)

Starbase images

Hi Unclebean, for "bonus" images use the images on this page (Starbase) and don't upload your own. If everyone uploads their own bous images we end up with a ton of duplicate images and a lot of work merging them. Thanks in advance Otto Vonbacon ❯❯❯ Talk 12:55, 11 September 2017 (CDT)

apostrophies

Hi Unclebean, I see you changes all the apostrophes in Dahj. The normal single quote that you can enter with the keyboard is the one usually used all the way back to the beginning of the WIKI. for those that type in the entries, it is easier. Why did you want to change it to the curly one? Dlefebvre1701 (talk) 08:51, 16 June 2020 (CDT)

The CrewCost page relies on the wiki item names to exactly match the items the way they are created in the game, so that it can properly create the cost totals and difficulty ratings. I've been slowly fixing all items to use the correct apostrophe/quotes Thanks Unclebean (talk) 09:11, 16 June 2020 (CDT)
Also, I had created the outfit page already and set it at the lvl 90 advancement section, hoping whomever completed the advancement page would copy the name, but it looks like you created a new page. Again, to make sure CrewCost gets updated properly, i had to go back and adjust the names and remove the erroneous page 09:24, 16 June 2020 (CDT)
How does the CrewCost page work? never used it. I built my own tool and the names simply need to match the WIKI names. There are game items (like Writing PADD) that there are 3 versions and the WIKI has named them differently to differentiate the differences. As your "fixing the apostrophes" you are also not copying all the data, like bonuses, and used. After I go past, I lost the data I had entered previously. There are too many people trying to update the WIKI so these tools must allow options so people can more easily contribute. We need contributors and the simpler for them the better.

Is the crew cost page even part of the WIKI? I can't find it. Are you the author of the CrewCost page? Dlefebvre1701 (talk) 16:26, 17 June 2020 (CDT)
It's been a community tool, posted for a long time, on the forums. It was written by one our fleet members. Here is the link - http://ssr.izausomecreations.com/crewcost.html. As for recreating the pages, when i recreate the pages, I DO, infact, copy the data over from the previous version. I may have missed one or two way back in the day, but these days, it's SOP for me to copy the bonus sections/etc over Unclebean (talk) 10:23, 18 June 2020 (CDT)
Please, please make sure to use the appropriate apostrophe mark, the single quote (') and not the autocorrected apostrophe (’). Krenim Guest Chakotay's Outfit and Calculations are both using the wrong one and it's a huge pain in the butt to fix this. Apple products love to change the single quote to an apostrophe. Please double check. Thank you. --Darxide (talk) 14:04, 29 June 2020 (CDT)
Also, it is possible to disable this behavior in the autocorrect settings of your device. Google can tell you how for your particular device. Nowhere on the Wiki should the apostrophe be used instead of the single quote. --Darxide (talk) 14:20, 29 June 2020 (CDT)
We are using the direct input from the game itself, which is what the external cost pages grab directly from the game API's and then calculate costs off of. Pages will match whatever they are in game. The (’) is NOT an autocorrect, it is a direct input into the game by WRG. We can discuss further offline.

Here is my two-sense, which i added to the style guide. Titantalk 21:49, 30 June 2020 (CDT)
