- Greetings 31dot. It's funny; I already have a wiki account, but I didn't realize I wasn't logged in. My account name is "Man of Steel 85". However, this was my first time editing this wiki (memory alpha), so I am still new. I'm quite a sci-fi guy, and I was reading about "The Voyage Home" because of the time travel aspect. Suddenly I saw a typo! Red alert! Even though my fix was simple, just changing "tell" to "tells," after this I may get more involved. It's cool getting to talk to so many of my fellow Trekkies. I am also a Star Wars-ie, a DC-ie, a Marvel-ie, a LOSTie, a Back to the Future-ie, and a Mythical Beast. Anyways, I'm glad we've made first contact and if you ever want to, just give me a hail. Live long and prosper, may the force be with you, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
From ~~Man of Steel 85~~
Please note that talk page posts are signed by typing ~~~~ at the end, or alternatively by clicking the Signature button located above where you type your posts; doing it this way provides a link to your talk page and a timestamp, aside from easily identifying posts as yours; simply typing a username does not do that, as any user can type it. 31dot (talk) 00:07, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
Multiple Edits Edit
Please make use of the Preview button when making edits. This allows you to see what your edit looks like before you save it, which reduces the load on the database and makes the Recent Changes page easier to read. Thanks. 31dot (talk) 19:59, October 19, 2013 (UTC)
