In response to this discussion about the Dominion mailing list, here's the very first email I sent to Dominion regarding the launch of Heartland, back in January 2002 :D

For anyone new to Heartland history, I beat SinSister to launching a forum by a matter of hours. Something for which she's never truly forgiven me... ;) :twisted:

indeed you are right.

so how about: http://www.myheartland.co.uk/ ? *

its still very much in beta, and if anyone feels its treading on toes i
apologise profusely...

so who wants to fill it with content? vicus? robin? anyone?

pete, do you want be an administrator? i don't see why the two cannot be run
side by side? i think they can be complimentary, rather than anything else?

ps. mik - sorry, i stole your idea (but not the software) from wishville!

Nice - I can't really recall what year it was when I spottet this forum the first time (never bothered myself with the Dominion mailing list before) but I was a long time lurker before I got myself an account^^

Btw: It seems that this is going to be some kind of joint-venture celebration, see:

http://forum.mysnip.de/list.php?5971,page=14

(the very first PD forum, first posting started somewhat around January 2002 as well)

So let's bake a cake now^^

I was on Dominion in 90/91, very early, but at the time there was literally nothing else going.

Aw, it all comes flooding back. Think I read that originally on a terminal green screen if you can believe that. Makes me a little teary for times passed.
