Howdy, I noticed a couple of articles appear to be direct copies of Memory Alpha articles which we aren’t meant to do. Even if you are only giving the same information it should be in your words not other peoples work. -- 8of5 02:51, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
- Ah... Thanks for the head's-up. I was wondering why other people weren't doing the obvious ones. I supposed they just weren't interested in the ones I am. Besides, no one reads the packaged instructions any more. *grin* I'll behave in future. Commander, Starbase 23 02:55, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
