Domination Issue #4

Chill-mode edition - dedicated to the memory of Mathias 'Scope' Vinsa.

Finally its back, after some usual magazine delay a whole new issue is in front of you! Basically a whole new outfit with many improvements and new features, a job well done by the DOM-coding-crew. New graphics, exclusive music and a compilation of text to cover all areas of the scene.

Delays, a small delay was taken with the organization and of a disconnected phone line! You can imagine how angry I could have been when my phone line was cut for a minor phone bill. But of course this was paid and things returned to normal. You may have also noticed that I’ve switched groups and the organization of this major project also takes up a great deal of time.

Summary: Greetings and finale

This edition is labelled as the "Chill-Mode" issue, with all work is totally dedicated to my friend who tragically died on March 16th in the early morning. SCOPE of F4CG was an inspiration to the younger generation of the scene and with his departure we lose a great friend, a cool scener and a brilliant graphician. One of his last works can be viewed in the intro picture he painted for me. I consider him, along side Cruise/Taboo, to be one of the modern IFLI masters. This issue is for you Mathias, may you rest in peace.

I've decided to do some extended voting categories for this and future issues. People may also now vote for... Top 5 Scener, Top 5 BBS, world-wide. Here are the first results of these new divisions, votes were taken from the boards in email from approximately 20-25 sceners.
