Subject: New War Archival Format
For everyone who missed the war, or those that didn't, and would like to read
posts- I've got a few factions archived (FoDS, DP, Knighties) in a new format
than I did have them. Could a few kind people please check it out and tell me
what they think? Thanks bunches :)

When you drowsily switch on the television in time to hear the
commentator say: ' Nick Knight really looks *extremely*
unhappy...' And you're suddenly wide awake, thinking...
well, the obvious -- before you collide with reality and discover
that Nick Knight is one of your county's cricketers -- and has
just been pounded on the head by a stray ball....

It's a good concept -- must have been fun assigning different colors to all
the factions. The color you picked for the Dark Perks is a little hard to
see against the black background (for me, anyway). Likewise the dark grey
you're using for the multi-faction posts. And it might be nice to repeat
the listing of the factions with their assigned colors at the bottom, so
you don't have to scroll all the way back to the top in case you've
A couple of the timing headings have strike-throughs -- Morning (Thursday
the 5th) & Night (Thursday the 19th). I do like how you have separate
headings for the parties -- very helpful. Perhaps a note up top that
you've done so and what dates they're on, for those of us who don't
immediately recall, would be good.
You might want to make the dates stand out more (bigger font?). Since
they're the same color as the timing headings and all the frames are
adjoining, they might tend to blend in with everything else when you have
more of the posts added.
Overall, I like it. Just couldn't help giving a few suggestions,
FWIW. Good job!

Subject: Fw: Admin: RULES
Break these rules? A word from our guest listowner, Lucien LaCroix, in the
tone he used to the Stasi officer in 1966: "Try." The Stasi officer changed
his mind and so should you. :)

For information on managing your subscription and listserv commands,
please see Don Fasig's page
1. Fkfic-l is for Forever Knight fanfic only, and the occasional
listowner-authorized informational post. Notes to authors go to
private mail; discussion and requests for parts go to Forkni-l or
2. Fanfic must be specifically about Forever Knight. Simply posting
a work to the list does not mean that it will be considered to
be set in the Forever Knight universe or about Forever Knight
characters. There must be specific references.
3. FK may be crossed only with other television shows. It can not
be crossed with other shows which are based on print-published
media including comics.
Crossovers must have the subject header xover: It has to be
spelled that way because the listserv doesn't recognize 'crossover,"
spelled out and it must have the colon so the listserv recognizes it
as a topic.
Crossovers must state with which show FK is being crossed.
4. Posts based on fanfic previously posted to Fkfic-l must have the
written permission of the previous writer.
5. Sex scenes *MUST* have an adult topic header. This means the subject
line begins like this --
or like this --
The colon is vital. It is what tells the listserv software that the
preceeding word is a topic.
6. No real person may be depicted by name without the express, written
permission of the person. Email counts as written permission.
7. Story parts should be numbered in the header after the end of the
title. For example --
A Forever Knight Christmas Carol (01/05)
8. No more than three parts of a story may be posted in 24 hours. Parts
must not be more than 300 lines. The only exception is the virtual
4th season, which can be set not to be received. REPOSTS MUST HAVE
THE LISTOWNER'S PERMISSION.
9. Please sign all parts at the end with your name and address. Not
all mailers show the original poster of listmail in the headers.
Names of FK characters may not be used to sign posts. Other pen
names are ok.
Note: sig lengths are limited to six lines.
10.In general, posts must be written by subscribers. If you want to
post something by a non-subscriber, you need permission from the
listowners. This permission is normally given only when the author
has good reason not to be subscribed to Fkfic-l.
In case of doubt, please consult the listowner.
11.To have your fiction archived at the ftp site, be sure to include
a permission statement at the top of your story.
For the fanfic page, simply include a statement that you agree to
have the work archived on the fanfic page It is possible to have work in
both or in only one.
