I really don't think you get it! In plain English: Eoin Colfer cannot be a member of this forum until we take down all of the AF fanfiction. That is, unless you don't care about his career. He won't be able to publish any more books if he reads fanfiction or is accused of reading fanfiction. I hate to corrupt your wish, everyone, but it's life. We have to choose: fanfiction, or Eoin Colfer.

Why can't he read fanfics? Will people think he stole their ideas? :shock:

Yes, even though he would never do that.
I really don't understand what kind of idiot would think that, but it's true. It's also incredibly stupid, but you can't reason with the law. I really wish it wasn't like this, but it is.

Cleolinda posted an excellent entry about that on her blog. I will link you guys to that so you can read it and get why Eoin Colfer could never read fanfiction. He might get on the forum but then there'd be no way to prove he didn't check the fanfiction. Anyway, here's link ;)

I've just got to ask, can't we restrict the access to the FanFicition section and dump Colfer in a special designed category so he can't read them? That would work, correct?

Totally, yes! Make Colfer an account then restrict his access to the fanfiction parts!

I agree with Alanna! Although it would be kinda hard to accomplish that...

Not really, its been done before. The phpBB boards should have a guide that outlines how to do that type of thing.

Not gonna work. They could say he read it while logged out, because you can see the stuff while logged out.
Besides, Colfer likes AFC, not us.

*sighs* We can hide all the Fan Fiction stuff from offline viewers too you know. It'll make it unviewable to those without an account... but it'll work. Just need to rifle through the setup guide to find that part...

Anyway, Colfer didn't even know how a forum works. AFC just has contacts, the grand man has no real preferences.

*pulls outline of AFC from pocket, highlights the restricted sections* Now, all the Fan Fiction has been put into a restricted viewing forum for online and offline people, with a minimum post entry too. You'd have to make the number then get clearance for the group.

And shouldn't it be possible to do a IP cloak on the AFFF site? There has to be a way to do it... we can't go and take it down, or tranfer the work... unless we seperate it intirely from the rest of the site....

I agree with some of your points, but what if Colfer has a dynamic IP?
