My contributions

If I'm ever gone again for, let's say, three months, all of my contributions can be considered Open for Adoption, except for Ethelred. Please don't touch Ethelred. But have at it with everything else. No need to even ask. That includes anything on my Ideas page and the 1983DD pages - just be sure to submit those as Proposals in the proper fashion.
