Fear of Flying Forum ?

Postby FrankM » Sun Feb 03, 2008 11:02 am

I got a suggestion to do a FoF forum here as well. As this forum had been rather slow on ad.com I didn't put it up here, but we'll see. So, please vote in the poll !

It may be slow, but the FoF forum might be one of the few things that brings in new members, which as much as we love each other, is one of the things that any forum needs to remain a vibrant community.

..........and a dose of Wingnut's wit, wisdom and good humour is never a bad thing - not to mention that I feel awful having invited her to run the FOF Roundtable at our previous virtual home, then we all slink out in the night to a new place with no such Forum...........

Ok, good point. I think I haven't read the FoF forum in years. Who was moderating this one ? "Wingnut" ? Who is she ? Please help me out there somebody.

I'm up for it - but I thought that Wingnut was already delegated to handle it

Wingnut is great. If you get desperate, I will help, along with sindee if you need me. (I promise to not abuse my power and harrass HB more than once a week)

Do NOT, under any circumstances, make Angelic One a moderator unless she promises to harrass me more than once a week.

I have learned that Wingnut will not be moderating our Fear of Flying Forum, so I guess it's time for you two to reduce the Halfie harrassment to the stipulated rhythm..........

You are aware that FoF stands for Fear of Flying, not Fear of F***ing, are you Halfie? ;)

I'm in - but I see that the Aussie Kindergarden has taken precedence over FoF.
