Administrators' Notice Board/Incidents
Welcome to the incident noticeboard. This page is for reporting and discussing incidents on the Star Trek Online Geekipedia that require the intervention of administrators. Any user of the geekipedia may post here.
Please keep your comments civil and please include diffs to help us find the problem you are reporting. As a courtesy, you should inform other users if they are mentioned in a posting. Please make your comments concise, as administrators are less likely to pay attention to long diatribes. Please use neutral section titles that identify the user(s) or article(s) involved, as appropriate.
This noticeboard is a busy and vital part of the geekipedia's administration. Complaints that are not serious and substantiated requests for administrator intervention do not belong here. Please do not clutter this page with accusations or side-discussions within a discussion.

Greetings, everyone! I was preparing to upload a Federation character file to the wiki, but noticed the page name was already taken. Whilst I'd normally file this under "s*it happens", in this particular case the page in question is a rather empty WiP article which has not been updated since about 5 months, and in addition to this is just an NPC. The page is located at: http://www.stogeek.com/wiki/T%27Lana
So, two things: Failing to locate a policy for such cases, I'd like to ask if I could take over the page for my own character, and secondly I'd like to propose a policy for NPCs in that they should not "pollute" the already bloated characters category (especially when they contain zero information) but either be hosted on their ship's page, or be moved to a new (and apparently yet to be created) separate NPC category.
In case of the latter, an optional subrule about the page name (as in adding an "NPC_" prefix, for example) might be worth a thought or two as well, in order to prevent NPC pages from occupying a name of interest to a PC. This way, the "first come, first serve" issue would be weakened a bit, in that real player characters would be prioritized.
Thanks for your attention!
I would like to suggest that these two categories be separated. The one category contains pages about particular species (ie Romulan, Orion, Andorian), the other category contants pages about Andorian characters, such as Harmony Yshol. Leave the racial pages as they are, but for the category for the characters of that race, call them "Romulans," "Andorians," etc. This way, when we put the Andorian link in a character page, it doesnt link to the species category page, but goes right to the "Andorian" racial page. :)

I recently created a page by the name Starfleet M.A.C.O. and I can't figure out how to protect it from edits other than my own. Is there a way to protect this page from random edits?
- I can place the page on protect for you. Also I can restore a page if someone messes with it...and you can reach out to the admins. (Admin Vazuras 20:43, 7 February 2012 (UTC))
New Staqr Trek Spin Off
I saw the new Star Trek Movie. I was very disappointed. I have always considered alternative timelines a cop out. I am in the process of developing a new Star Trek spin off. It will take place in the TNG universe. My problem is where, or to whom would I submit it. Can anyone advise me. ~;^}>
