Also - since we're all fandom people, if you like digging into pretty much all things fandom:

http://fanlore.org

it's a fannish wiki that records fannish history things.  Go forth and read and edit and explore!  It's like going through a Stargate for fandom! XD

Back in 2011 after a few years on GateWorld, I and some of my friends decided to branch out on our own. So we created our own version. We're essentially a mini version of the above I guess is the best way to describe it; though we do support all Sci-fi and Fantasy genre as well. Oh and we're on SMF to  ;D

Is it ok for me to come and sign up and start a thread about The Homecoming? Or has that already been taken care of?

Richard - if you were on the old ASciFi.com, you probably still have an account, except it's been shifted over to sffchronicles.com b/c they took over the old ASciFi board.

Oh,guys, can you recommend some proven forum, or other source of information, media, etc., on hard sci-fi - I mean, actually scientifically accurate fiction - so theory-based, but a little out of the line??

much thanks if there is a person who can say sth about a place like that

 Hi Aikon,

 You could check out Lost Worlds, we have a wide range of stuff there worth looking into and if it ain't there now we can create it.  ;D apparently we're not allowed to post external links? But I can PM you if you like.

I'm going to guess you have to hit a certain number of posts before you're allowed to post external links. It's a spam-prevention measure. I don't know what the number is, but lower than my current post count b/c I can post links.

It's also possibly a wonky software glitch. I know sometime back ppl reported not being able to post links and Richard tinkered with things. But I dunno if that was software gremlins or a setting change.
