    The notion of creating a link to the Dominion board site is best described
as a pipe dream of mine, and my intentions were primarily for what the site
could be, not what it already was. The possibility of creating any type of
link *is* non-existent, which is just as well since fans have already described
it as a bad idea. My apologies for not leaving well enough alone and pushing
the idea too far. I won't continue to try anyones patience by discussing any
type of link any further. (I was even considering putting spoiler space into
this post, but I figure the subject line serves that purpose adequately.) I
would remind anyone that the address in my .sig *does* however work for private
discussion via E-Mail (Hint, Hint), though the term I've used repeatedly,
"vote" is a misnomer as it implies than registering an opinion may get
something done. It won't.

     Yesterday I did what I should have done long ago and created a
new site that's spelled correctly:


    And just yesterday a fellow posted a reply already.

    As Paul Kemner suggested, and as I was imagining, one (Me) or more of us
might do is add to the now corrected site. In his words:

On a related subject: I've been thinking about online ways to attract new
fans to the show. How about picking one or more general interest topics, and
having everybody post replies to rec.arts.animation, and possibly copies to
this SciFi site? Even if they have already been discussed on the mailing
list, posting them might create a lot of new viewers to agitate for new

I was thinking about topics like:

Who's your favorite SK adversary?
What's the best episode in terms of animation quality?
What's the best episode in terms of story line?
Is SK anime or is it Anime-like? (get all us anime fans to take a look at
the show so they can give their opinion).
  etc. etc. etc.

If this has already been suggested before I joined the list, please forgive.
It's not easy finding Kats on the web- most searchers didn't show anyting
when I started looking. Since TCN programs usually aren't listed in
newspaper TV schedules, you're not likely to know that the show is out
there, what it's about, or if it's worth watching. Maybe generating some
general-interest stuff on usenet would help.

    So, any other suggestions? I'll make some additional posts to the site,
nothing too big so folks will read, and if we expand it to several posts,
then we could generate some real interest, and maybe even attract some new
members if the list is advertised there.
