Dearly Beloved,

We are gathered


Apologies - wrong ceremony :embarrassed_smile:

Seriously,

It gives us a lot of pleasure to be able to announce that we have a new addition to our ranks of Moderators.

Known to us all as watch_art, he has kindly offered to moderate the Fountain Pen Reviews forum, and hence take on the mammoth task of keeping the Fountain Pen Reviews index up-to-date.

On behalf of all our members we would like to wish him well in his task.

Fond regards,
FPN Admin Team

THANKS all! I look forward to getting the reviews index in shape and cleaned up. If you notice anything out of place, or a pen in the wrong spot, PLEASE let me know and give me a heads up. I'm sure I'll miss things sometimes.

I'm really glad to help.

By the way, I've copied all my reviews from A-M. So just the last half to go, and then I'll continue adding from the forum instead of the file I saved. :thumbup:
