Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

amazing. I would have suspected the Dutch. I guess we germans rank quite low because over here all movies get not even subtitled but fully translated (including their titles), so that most people have never heard the original sound. In fact, I've never seen any Trek epi in the original. Hadn't I met some of the actors, I'd have no idea how they really sound. (which might be fortunate in some cases - Mr. Nimoy has a terribly strong accent)

Can't you choose the Originalton (hence my use of that particular word earlier) when watching them on a TV-set? I know you can't if you watch German TV via satellite, but I was under the impression that you could do it when receiving the signal from land based transmitters or cable...

no, unfortunately they hardly ever transmit 2 sound channels. Usually it's only the German one to save bandwidth

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

Peep peep, I'm new. I like all the Trek series. Not sure which my favorite is, as I like aspects of each. Probably DS9 but haven't seen much beyond the first two seasons (but just found out that my local library has almost all the DS9 seasons, so party...), and I have fond memories of watching TNG when it was new. Anyway, glad to be here. *salute*

hi Welcome to the board. Do you happen to post at other Trek- and Andromeda-related boards as well? Your name seems so familiar.

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

Hey all...

Glad to be here..

Um, is it proper Forum etiquette to post an intro in all the Welcome threads? I'm glad to say hello- truly.. i just don't want to post all over the place and seem like an idiot... i think this is at least the third. Is there a Secret Handshake? Feeling a wee bit unsure...

Love the Forum, tho. Thanks for having me...

Hi, welcome

Naah, there's no secret handshake or the like (might be a bit difficult unless we invent a special smilie for it). And one welcome thread is generally sufficient.
It is good style, though, to also say hi in the lounge (which is imho the best part of the board).

Posting all over the board is not necessarily something bad. It's good for your postcount and promotion

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

If I haven't logged-in in, like, a year, do I count as being new again?

Hmmmm, I'd say that makes you "used", not "new"
