FanHistory.com Incident  
Because I posted about it a few weeks ago, I want to follow-up and say that the FanHistory.com experiment has turned out unfortunately.  Its problems most importantly seemed to include violating the value of not posting real-life information against people's wishes.  If you're interested in all the details, this initial summary here with follow-up here was recommended to me by a good friend.

There is some talk on forkni-l about Gaylin's FK Wiki as an alternative.

For myself, just personally, I think I'll stick with working on my own site and ongoing projects for now.  I have a lot of work to do on the Character Directory, FK Universe List, and Quotations Concordance -- as well as stories to write!  As long as FK is forging on, I'm happy in fandom.

As you know, I was working on the FK Fan History pages quite a lot—and the whole business is just so disappointing, isn't it? The idea is great: the actuality seems...corrupt in its ideals, I guess is the way I feel about it.

Anyway, because of my involvement, I've been e-mailing Susan; and she says definitely Gaylin's site.

It makes me want to tremendously back off and hide out in a safe little bolt-hole, honestly.

I'm sorry for all the disappointment of those who worked hard on it, and the work that will have to be reinvested!
