    I've submitted my site/mailing list months ago. Why is still not listed?

    First, are you sure your site is not listed? We don't send any confirmation when we include a link, so please try the internal search engine to check wether your site/mailing list has been added or not (scan for the site's title, not for the URL).

    Second (if your site is still missing) it depends on how you sent us your submission. Unfortunately we can't accept submissions via simple e-mails, you must use the appropriate submission form.

    Third, if your submission was incomplete or your site was not reachable when we tried to access it, we have discarded it. You can e-mail us and ask us if your submission is still in the queue.

    Fourth, due to the huge amount of submissions we received so far, we are still adding sites to our database. Please bear with us. If you submitted your site many, many months ago, then it is possible that your submission was lost. Please send it again using the submission form.


    What do the icons mean?

    Please note: except for the "Maquis" icon, we made all these pics! We know they're very popular and they're used by many Star Trek sites, but please ask for permission before using them on your site.

    Admiral - Admiral
    Absolutely one of the BEST Star Trek sites out there! Only very few sites deserved this rating so far.

    Captain - Captain
    A very cool site, *way* above average. Original/useful information and cool graphics.

    Commander - Commander
    A very well written page, above average. Original information or graphics.

    Lieutenant Commander - Lieutenant Commander
    The average Star Trek site. Mainly cloned information and graphics. Some interesting stuff.

    Lieutenant - Lieutenant
    Below average. Little/cloned/uninteresting information.

    Ensign - Ensign
    We hope it's still under construction...

    Maquis - Maquis
    We feel we can't give a judgement to this site. Usually given to archives.

    Linked - Reciprocal link
    This site has a reciprocal link with ST:WWW

    New - New
    This link was added with the current update.



    What are the criteria you use when giving a rank to a site?

    We usually surf about 50% of the site and then we give our judgement based on the originality and the usefulness of the information, and on the graphical layout. We use (randomly) Netscape Navigator 4 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3, with a 800x600 screen size. We always wait several months before re-evaluating a site, and we usually ignore the "please-check-my-site-again" queries (sorry).


    Can I use your graphics on my page?

    All graphics on this site (except where clearly stated) have been made by Luca Sambucci. The LCARS layout, the buttons, the animations, the pips, everything. We like to see other Star Trek webmasters using them on their site, but please ask for permission before using them. And in your message please include your site's URL.

    Permission will be granted for noncommercial use and as long as an acknowledgement note is included at the bottom of the page.
