Thumbs up Hi ... (and a note for Jan)

A few years ago, someone said to me: "Hey! You should check out B5." So I did, and the rest is history....

(I hadn't expected a post-registration introductory process, but I understand why it's necessary. I previously had an old account in good standing, but perhaps with a different name. After having trouble recovering the password, I re-registered instead.)

My only planned post for today was a note to Jan regarding a certain site's use of a transcript. In the current discussion about a future movie, Dan D. had said that a certain website's report had used a transcript "without credit"? FWIW, a "Sources" note at the end of the article did include an indirect credit, to "Free Babylon 5" with a link to: freebabylon5.com/b5-movie-news-announcement-transcript/.

BTW, the FreeBabylon5.com site may not be available at the moment; when I visit it, the web server says:
"Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_template_stylesheet_uri() in /home/content/44/12027144/html/wp-content/themes/FreeB5/header.php on line 18".
.

Hi Lucas,

Sorry for making you jump through extra hoops the post but the place was being completely over-run by spammers - as many as 300 per *day*.

Thanks for the clarification regarding the credit for the transcript but really, even if there hadn't been one, I'm perfectly fine with that. Heck, everyplace I posted it was as a page or just my first name, I think so that would be a hard credit to come up with. As long as the words are credited to JMS, it doesn't matter who typed them (well, as long as there aren't too many errors! )

I'll let DougO know that you're in the 'waiting room' so he can clear you for the rest of the site. I just went over to the Free Babylon 5 website and it seems okay now, but thanks for that also.

Jan

Hi Lucas! I almost missed his email but DougO has changed your status to confirmed so you should be able to post now.

Welcome!

Jan
