Do large, rare specimens belong only in museums, or is there a legitimate place for the growing fossil industry? Some say the commercial fossil hunters ruin good science, others suggest that they're helping to preserve fossils which otherwise would be lost to weathering.

applejack: Hi Kivuli. There's plenty of cross-pollination of members between the various Dinotopia forums, so the names you see here and on other boards are almost certainly the same people. Welcome to the official message board!

cptstarlight: Dinotopia, like returning to the company of an old friend. Should old friends be forgot and never thought upon? I think not.

DinoAnon: Remember to uphold personal honour and find your own glory in the world and your traditions. Halcyon and the Knights of the Unrivaled could have done no less. Good bye, Dinotopia.

DinoAnon: Spending time with Dinotopians. And how much more wonderful and magical the world was.

DinoAnon: I remember 1995 and the glorious high point of The World Beneath and the exciting world of Dinotopia being explored. I look around now in a decaying fandom, though you don't need a fandom to enjoy something...
