Have you considered what your name might mean in Japanese? --K. Shinohara 12:34, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
- Not just considered, but also chosen it for that reason :) Afaik, it's 'idiots' right? -- Bakabaka 23:36, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
- Thanks, I'll contribute again. Sorry for being bold. -- Bakabaka 23:38, March 21, 2011 (UTC)
I appreciate your boldness, but I thought you might like to know why your edit was removed. If you disagree with it, discuss it on the article's talk page. If you disagree with the policy, discuss it on that talk page. In the case of that removed edit, it isn't really a nit, as most likely the runabout tied into the DS9 transporters somehow. Even if it was, as a community we decided that such information was trivial and not noteworthy, unless there is citeable information about it. See MA:NIT for more information.--31dot 00:18, March 22, 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks again, and sincere this time. My apologies, my previous answer was out of line. I was in a rather bad mood yesterday. I do still think the goof is noteworthy, but if you don't, then that's okay :) -- Bakabaka 16:51, March 22, 2011 (UTC)
- I also placed the removed nitpick on the talk page for reference. Though I don't believe it is a nit since O'Brien used the station's transporter to get to the Rio Grande, not the other way around. The fact that he rematerialized on the runabout's transporter pad is insignificant. --| TrekFan Open a channel 17:37, March 22, 2011 (UTC)
