Calendar Events / Announcements '03 II / Actress Florence Stanley
« on: October 11, 2003, 01:31:23 AM »
Today's LA Times reports that Florence Stanley passed away last week.  Her voice was used to portray Josette's sobs in an early episode of DS, but of course she's better known as the wife of Abe Vigoda's character on "Barney Miller" and "Fish".

Testing. 1, 2, 3... / For members with AOL, Compuserve, and Road Runner
« on: September 16, 2003, 06:12:34 PM »
Good news!

During registrations we were asking all cousins to not use,, or addresses in their profile.  This was because the forums were unable to get mail through to providers that used AOL servers.  As a result, several members were forced to open yahoo or hotmail accounts, and their cooperation in continuing to list those addresses in their profile has been much appreciated.  But I'm happy to report that the problem no longer exists and these cousins are now free, if they wish, to begin using their AOL, Compuserve or Road Runner addresses here.

Please note that ANYTIME you change the email address in your profile, a new password is generated by the system, so you may want to make that change only after finishing the session on the boards because as soon as the change is made you'll be returned to the login page and must log in with your new password in order to access your account again.

Please do keep your address current.  There's an option within your profile to keep it hidden from the public.  Here's the procedure for changing the email address in your profile:

Click "profile" in the horizontal menu at the top or bottom of any forum page
In the top section titled "Required Information", enter your preferred email address.  It's very important that it be correct and complete.
Enter your current password on the next line.  You are asked to enter it only once.
Click "Change profile"
Your new password should arrive shortly in the [new] mailbox.  If it's not received in a reasonable period of time, please contact an administrator at or  You probably want to note those somewhere in the event you find yourself in this position.

The password that the forums give out is hard enough to remember, but you can change your pw back to the one you had before or to one you've made up yourself by following this procedure:

Log onto the forum, if necessary, using your current password
Open your profile
In the top section titled "Required Information", enter your current password
Scroll down to the section titled "Preferences" and enter your desired password twice (next to "Choose password" and "Verify password")
Click "Change profile"

Current Talk '03 II / How bizarre!-- SciFi repeated an episode

Did anyone else watching DS on SciFi this morning see a repeat of last week's final episode?

Current Talk '03 II / Reminder: No DS on Monday, Sept. 1
« on: August 30, 2003, 06:30:46 PM »
DS is pre-empted for the Labor Holiday, but you probably knew that. ;)  SciFi is airing an Outer Limits marathon instead.

None of the DS actors ever did OL, right?  I can't recall a single one, anyway.

Testing. 1, 2, 3... / Using multiple YABB tags
« on: August 19, 2003, 06:57:07 PM »
Adding a single YABB tag to text or image is pretty easy (I hope you've all tried it in your posts!), but it gets a bit more involved when you want to apply more than one effect to the same text or image.  To add more effects, you need to add more tags to the existing tag, which is referred to as nesting tags.

For example, if you have text you want to italicize, you would wrap your text with an italics tag, like this:
Code: [Select]
But let's say you also want to bold and underline that same text.  To get those additional effects you'd add more tags:
Code: [Select]
The opening tags could have been entered in any order, but the closing tags were added in the exact opposite order, like this:
Code: [Select]
Overlapping tags is never a good idea; they can confuse your browser and produce undesirable results in your posts.  Here's an example of overlapped tags:
Code: [Select]
So for the best results, the rule of thumb is to close your tags in the opposite order you opened them.  And on behalf of all the mods, thank you!  :D

Current Talk '03 II / Angelique Stokes Collins (de Winter)
« on: July 13, 2003, 02:17:38 AM »
Though it's debatable whether RT Angelique genuinely loved Barnabas, we know why she never put a spell on him to force him to love her (she wanted him to come to her willingly, blah blah) and so she used his little sister, etc., to get to him.  But I can't recall similar discussions about PT Angelique.  So...

Do you think PT Angelique really feels anything for Quentin?  Do you think she ever did?

Instead of risking his life (see Raineypark's post about Ange's incompetence) to get Maggie to return to Collinwood just so she could toy with her, why didn't Angelique put a spell on Quentin to make him fall for her instead?

These questions have been discussed here before, but since we have many new members...

Do you think Angie's other men-- Bruno, Cyrus, Will, Dameon, Trask, Roger-- were once her lovers?

How would you explain a 30 year old woman (according to her gravestone) being mother to Daniel (who was played by a 13 year old actor)?
