Fan Forum's 22nd Anniversary Celebration!





Hi everyone!

On behalf of Goldenboy and the entire Management Team here, I would like to thank everyone here as we celebrate our 22nd Anniversary. Every milestone that we pass here is true testimony to the dedication of all the people who are a part of this website, from the Managers, to the Moderators, to the Members, and Managers of the various teams that help run this website, and most of all, to the Members that post here. I think that Fan Forum is still a great place for people to come together and talk about topics that interest them with other people with similar interests, and we all look forward to seeing Fan Forum continue to remain here for all of us in the years ahead.

Happy 22nd Anniversary everyone!

- Jerry





Goldenboy (Leif)
 FAN FORUM CREATOR


  Jerry D
 FAN FORUM ADMINISTRATOR
What was the first board you posted on? The Dawson's Creek Board. I was linked to this website in January 1999 from a long since defunct Katie Holmes Website, and I liked the fact that people would discuss the show in detail, which was right up my alley.
Have you met anyone from in real life? Yes, I've met several people from Fan Forum in real life, both through planned trips to meet up with people I got to know here and also through meeting people at the Roswell-themed Fan Forum Parties that we had in 2001 and 2002. I also attended the wedding of two people that met through Fan Forum.

What was the first board you posted on? Young Americans. I was excited that a Canadian channel was airing reruns and wanted to share the information. Although I hadn't been a regular poster for years, I was saddened to see it close right after it celebrated it's 20th anniversary here last July.
What was the first board you moderated? Star Trek. I've been there since September 9th, 2002.

   Artemis (Jackie)
 MODERATOR MANAGER & THREAD TAGS LEADER
What was the first board you posted on? Gossip Girl. I found this site because I needed to talk more about the show, the characters, the actors, the ships. And the first board I moderated here was for one of the actors on the show - Jessica Szohr (who played Vanessa). I've also been a Mod at two other GG related boards: Chase Crawford (who played Nate) and Sebastian Stan (who played Carter).
How long have you been a manager? What do you do as a manager? It's been almost a year and a half now since I joined the Management Team, June 2019. And I've been a moderator for more than 10 years now. My responsibilities include evaluating Moderator applicants, conducting bi-annual activity checks, and helping to resolve conflicts that arise. You can typically find me on Sundays posting welcome threads when Mods are appointed. And did someone say thread tags - hi, how can I help?

   Si_Crazy (Si)
 MODERATOR MANAGER & AVATARS MANAGER
What was the first board you moderated? The first board I moderated was Hawaii Five-0 (from February 2013 to March 2016) after the moderator that was leaving sent me a PM encouraging me to apply, and it was the best experience for me.

My favourite character was Nathan Scott, so when I stumbled upon this forum, I lurked for a while and then couldn't help but start posting. I still have the fondest memories from posting on that board.
How long have you been a manager? What do you do as a manager? I have been a manager for close to 5 years now. I'm the manager of the Communications Team which promotes Fan Forum to the online world. Some of my main responsibilities is setting up the list of different site-wide and board-specific updates to post on social media each month, select boards to be spotlighted and boards to find affiliates for.

 polaris (Mel)
 GRAPHICS TEAM MANAGER
What was the first board you posted on? Heroes. I had been following the Hayden/Milo thread for a while before I finally gave in and joined up.
Have you met anyone from in real life? Yes, it started with Yvonné and it has grown ever since. In 2016 I went on holidays with the entire 1D board (pretty much). Right now we're just trying to figure out our next holiday and concerts we want to go to all together.

 GRAPHICS TEAM MANAGER
What was the first board you moderated? What boards have you moderated? The first board I moderated was Pushing Daisies, where I was appointed to on June 20th 2010. Since then I've moderated Delta Goodrem, NCIS Franchise, Smash, Kelly Clarkson, & Charmed (2018).
How long have you been a manager & what do you do as a manager? I've been a manager since April 11th 2017, so about three & a half years. As one of the GT managers my main responsibilities, to put them simply, involve determining which boards need to be (re)customised & when. Doing so involves maintaining various different lists, contacting moderators for their opinions, & keeping an eye on board openings & closures.

me and the sky (Kate)
 GRAPHICS TEAM MANAGER
What was the first board you posted on? ER. I was looking for a place to discuss the show and find fellow fans back in 2006 and was just what I was searching for. My English was terrible back then but I'm glad everyone was so supportive and that got me to improve my skills and stick around!
Have you met anyone from in real life? Yes, I've met a few people over the years, most importantly one of my now best friends Jen (Scythe), the previous Graphics Team Manager. We've been super close for almost ten years now.
