If you have any more questions, feel free to ask, and again, welcome. :) --From Andoria with Love 05:04, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Odell vs O'Dell Edit
I know that O'Dell is the proper celtic/Irish spelling of the name, that wasn't what I was worried about, I was only trying to ensure that the episode credits showed it that way, because if they showed it as Odell, then that would be the name that should be used in MA. Since it's O'Dell in the credits, all is good. And I've fixed all of the links, etc.
As an aside, don't change the image links, since the image isn't called "O'Dell", it is "Odell', so that's what the image link must be, otherwise the image will be broken. The image names don't really matter in the grand scheme of things, they aren't usually seen. :) -- Sulfur 01:33, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
