* If your using an actual quote, revert back to [[Pavel Chekov|Chekov]]'s russian accent and [sic]. Otherwise it should probably be paraphrased instead of quoted.--[[User:Mike Nobody|Mike Nobody]] 15:27, 27 Oct 2005 (UTC)

* Agreed; I've changed it back to the way it was before. And for the record, 9er, when you edited the article, it was currently in use by another user (namely, [[User:Tough Little Ship|Tough Little Ship]]), as evidenced by the "in use" notice that was at the top of the page. In the future, please do not edit articles while they are in use, so as to avoid edit conflicts. Thanks! --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 16:44, 27 Oct 2005 (UTC)

**I began editing before the "in use" notice was posted, so I didn't see it until after I posted my changes. The preview function doesn't reflect any edits by others made in the meantime, apparently. If it's possible, this would be a good feature to have. --[[User:9er|9er]] 16:55, 27 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Latest revision as of 18:10, May 29, 2020

Spelling Edit

The Scots do not make "whiskey"; they make "whisky". The preceding unsigned comment was added by 217.43.63.123 (talk).

Unfortunately, any random seeker of "Scotch whiskey" might not know that and their search won't bring them to this article. --Gvsualan 17:31, 25 Dec 2004 (CET) --Gvsualan 17:31, 25 Dec 2004 (CET)
Good point. I think this might be the case of a useful redirect. I will create a redirect (Scotch whiskey) and link to it on that page. -- Cid Highwind 17:57, 2004 Dec 25 (CET)
Actually Scotch whiskey should be listed under common misspellings instead -- Kobi 18:10, 25 Dec 2004 (CET)

Because an earlier edit today changed "inwented" to "invented", the first being the way Chekov pronounced it. Either this should be changed back, or the "[sic]" should be removed as it is now without any function. I'm not really sure about what might be the preferred action. Any opinions? -- Cid Highwind 15:24, 27 Oct 2005 (UTC)
