Deep Space Nine Changes Time

Deep Space Nine is moving from Wednesdays at 10 pm EST, to Wednesday at 9 pm EST! The change became possible in recent days, which also worked well with a time change needed by one of the hosts. The crew was polled, and feedback gathered. With almost no objections the time change was approved and takes effect for next weeks sim!

This is also excellent news because DS9 used to go head-to-head with Delta Fleet”s USS Stargazer, one of the most storied and respected sims within the FSF. Now players do not have to make a choice between the two sims, and could potentially even play on both if they so desired.

DS9 is commanded by FSF Sarge & FSF Immortal. You can check out their website at http://www.sb-ds9.com.

NOTICE: AOL Blocking Email

Please be aware that AOL is now blocking any and all emails that mention the domain sb254.com in them. They are doing this as a result of a high number of complaints by our membership. FSF provides all the necessary tools to reduce your email levels by having all your AMS messages delivered to the AMS message center, all email mailing lists readable and postable on the forums and preferences to turn off other related emails. We are attempting to rectify this situation, but it may be several days before AOL begins to allow emails again that mention sb254.com

What can you do to make sure your emails get through?
Just be sure you do not have links in your signatures that link to sb254.com websites. Additionally, when you reply to emails, remove the text “sb254.com” everywhere in the reply. This includes email addresses in the headers.

Thanks. We are working with AOL to undo this situation.
