Today, February 28, 2009, it’s exactly five years ago that the Faramir Fiction Archive was born. On this day five years ago, a first version was put together by one half of your friendly admin duo and a link emailed to the other half. The site was unveiled to the public 5 days later, on March 4, 2004.
We’d like to thank you all for being a part of these five years, whether as a writer, or an artists, or a reader!
Last year, on the archive’s fourth anniversary, we asked all authors and artists to riffle thought their hard drives, memory sticks and notebooks and see if they had any nearly finished, or simply never posted, stories or artwork that they could post in the 5 days. This year, we’d like to ask all the readers to do something back for the authors and artists whose work built this archive.
If you’ve enjoyed the stories and pictures at this site over the past five years, please take a moment during the next couple of days to think back of your favourite stories or pictures, and show your appreciation by either leaving a comment or a ‘thank you’ for the author/artist. To make commenting extra easy for even the most persistent lurkers, it’s not necessary to leave a name or email address when you post a comment this week (though we still encourage you do to add at least an email address to ensure the author/artist can get back to you – email addresses are never displayed on the site).
Thanks to everyone who posted comments or thank-yous over the past weeks! (And please, keep it up!)
