Dearest Members & Visitors to the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

As you all know, since a bit over a week we have a few new forums, a regional forum for Chinese and ROC pens, a Miscellenous (Other) brands forum, and we renamed the Writing Instruments forum to "First Stop - Frequently Discussed Topics".

As you may also know, we normally require at least two moderators to eb avialabel for any new forum, and in this case there is no exception. The moderators of the old WI forum have indicated they gladly help out with the new forums, so they have been added to the list of moderators for those forums :).

However, we found a few new victims, uhhh, volunteers, to help with moderating these forums as well.

dcpritch will help out with First Stop and Miscellaneous Brands, and Harlequin will assist with Miscellaneous Brands, Chinese & ROC pens, and with the Clubs, Meetings and Events forums.

So please, three cheers and a warm welcome for dcpritch and Harlequin!

Warm regards,
The FPN Admin Team

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone. Having now become a moderator I am even more impressed than before with the group that greeted me - they are without exception warm, genuine, incredibly bright, and dedicated to FPN. I am honored to contribute to a place from which I have gained so many friends and learned so much.

A belated welcome (sorry). The spam-o-rama thing had me so distracted, I failed to even notice this thread until yesterday. A huge welcome and thanks to you for your contributions.

Congratulations David! Though I'd better congratulate the Forum and myself for having such a first rate moderator among us   :)

Great additions!  I can say that I knew dcpritch when he was a mere pen/ink mortal.  LOL!


With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.
