Excellent idea! I've been wanting to do this for a while as Epic97 seems
like a right lemon.

I got info on their copyright some time ago when making my page. They wont
really sue the pants off any individual like us as they can see there
wouldnt be that much money in it (they probably have most of your money
anyway). The worst they can really do to us is to tell us to get rid of it
-no real problem.

I'll do it. The EPICentre is becoming more and more useless as it deals only
with the current edition, even though I've heard from a lot of people not on
this list that they will stick to the current ed. I'll gladly put these new
rules up (as i said, it is something i was wanting to do anyway)
