All starbase118.net mail blocked on Yahoo!
For some reason, Yahoo! has started blocking all e-mails coming from the starbase118.net domain. This means that any forms on our site, standard e-mails from the forums, etc. are not making it into your Yahoo! account, or any Yahoo! Groups lists.
I'm working with our hosting provider to see what's going on, but answers are not very forthcoming. Please hold off on submitting any forms, or relying on any starbase118.net mail forwarding to any Yahoo! properties until we know more.

Awards : 24 hours left
Dear members of UFoP: Starbase 118,
As you know, each year we hold an annual awards ceremony to honour and reward hard-working members of the fleet.
There are only 24 hours left before nominations close!
So far this year there has been a very low turnout in nominations. Unless you nominate in the next 24 hours then there will not be many awards issued on your ship.
In the past we have always taken the award ceremonies very seriously, as they are important in rewarding the members of our community, who we believe are among the best in the world. Over time, the process of the ceremony itself has become more sophisticated, to ensure that the best qualified individuals receive the awards they are most suited for.
All members are, therefore, encouraged to head to the nomination form to begin sending in their nominations.
Once nominations close, Fleet Captain T'Pen will chair a committee that will decide which nominees are granted awards. Awards Ceremonies will then be held at the end of December / start of January.
You have 24 hours left!
