Dear dwellers of the FPN water hole, elders and pups alike,
welcome to the forum on FPN which is your first stop here . We have been asked by the Admin Team to moderate this forum, which may be the most encompassing of all on FPN. It our pleasure to serve this great community of ours. (In truth, we failed to reach escape velocity and the admins caught up with us ).
There are not many guidelines for this forum. If you have read the general FPN guidelines you know most of the "rules". If you haven't, you'd better do it now before an Admin or a Moderator finds out ! The only additional rules, effective immediately, are :
- Authors of questions about ink colours will be severely punished. (i.e. the post will be moved to the Inky Thoughts forum.)
- Requests concerning which pens people are carrying will be met by unholy thunder. (i.e. you will be submerged by an unmanageable number of confusing answers.)
Seriously, here are the golden rules : Speak about what interests you, ask any question that keeps you asleep or simply passes through your brain while sipping coffee, and, most importantly, enjoy yourself.
This forum is for the discussion of writing instruments and their use, whatever is your concern or the information you wish to share. If you are a newcomer, do not be afraid of asking the most basic questions. (It makes us feel so good when we can pretend that we are knowledgeable !) One advice : try to use the search feature of the site before asking a question. If you still have unanswered concerns, try to post in an existing thread that started with a similar question. But if you don't, that's ok too, and we'll manage to make you even more confused than you were when you came in anyway.
Finally, think of our role in this forum as cleaners, organizers and occasional conversation stirrers, more than Guardians of Rule and Order.
So, just grab a chair, a drink and enjoy !
