The Official FPN Facebook Group is run by FPN Moderators.

There is also a FPN Facebook Group which is not official, so the group which is connected with the FPN Forum has "Official" in the title.

Yes we are positive as I Moderate both, however if you don't wish to join the Facebook group that is entirely your choice. :)

I am not on Facebook. Can someone let me know what the difference in content is between the forum and FB sites (official and unofficial)?

Maybe it's time for me to stop lurking in the shadows... :)

Totally different Leonard. The footfall is markedly more here and is much more structured.


One minute you are driving down the road, every window open, singing along to 'I dont want to miss a thing' at top volume, the next you are driving and turning down the volume on the radio to help you see better.

The Facebook group is nowhere near as large, posts are varied and not as easily searchable by subject.

What are you talking about? the FPN group on Facebook? What is their unlawful behavior?

The group known as "The Fountain Pen Network" Facebook group has nothing to do with us as such, we are aware of the issues which have occurred there but we have no legal claim on the name and have no control over their behaviour.

"The Official Fountain Pen Network" Facebook group is us and there is no impropriety in that group.

I applied to join the official FaceBook group today. I hate FB with a purple passion (Watch for the purple ink!), but applied to join because of this community. I look forward to learning, growing and sharing with you there, as well as here. Reading through this Forum has been interesting and not a little instructive. I am contemplating an attempt to form a loose-knit MeetUp group for Middle Tennessee. I'm cordially ambivalent about it, but if there is a decent interest, it could be nice. It could include a couple of decent-sized communities (Nashville, Murfreesboro Tennessee being among them). 

 

Any ideas, suggestions, ransom demands?

Answer the questions on the Facebook Group and you’re in. As far as a group local to you is concerned, write a post and see if you can get anyone interested!!
