After seeing what the last couple of links on the APOD have done to The Asterisk, I hereby unsuggest my code additions, above. :)

Can't use my Bad Buoy

APOD link

If it weren't for the link on "Strange streak" I would never have arrived.

I have looked for such a link a couple times and now keep my own on the desktop.

I realize that "Strange streak" garnered alot of worldwide attention bringing alot of visitors, some quite disruptive. But I don't believe that would be the case on a day to day basis and some input might be quite insightful.

I don't think an a small link in APOD to your APOD forum will be harmful, and could be quite interesting.

On second thought after seeing how valid topics in this forum are rapidly being buried with inexperienced use of the board, I would suggest that any such link be directly into this forum and that the Post New Topic choice be made available only to your registered users.
