One other suggestion: if you're going to make comments on talk pages or make other sorts of comments, please be sure to sign them with four tildes (~~~~) to paste in your user name and the date/time of the comment.
- The above named user is the most currently available administrator to contribute to Memory Alpha; their signature was automatically added by User:Wikia. If you have any immediate questions or concerns, you may contact that user through their talk page.
Talk pages Edit
Just a tip- if you make posts on a talk page, please keep your indentation consistent through the section of the talk page you posted on; for example, if you were the first poster, with no indent, you should continue to have no indent throughout that section(such as in your response to my post on Talk:Force field). If you were the second poster, with one indent, keep using one, etc. This makes it easier to keep track of who wrote what. Thanks --31dot 10:07, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
- Thank you for the tip. I was not aware of that convention, and I appreciate your taking the time to clue me in.--Pat Berry 14:38, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
