Well, I spent a while online one day when I was bored, trying to find a site with info about The Lost Colony. Unfortuantely, most Artemis Fowl sites out there are pretty much dead (I remember one was still decorated for Christmas a year previously).

Eventually, however, I found the FG site, and became a regular visitor. Then MM posted up that thing about applying to be part of the site, and I joined the forum so I could communicate with him. I never really planned to post much. Actually, I'm still sort of shocked about how much I'm involved.

Yes I have peach children, you got a problem with that huh? They are about 2 weeks old now and they came from the grocery store, I even ate the peach part myself! They have names also, Lillie, Jayd, and Greggie now bug off! They are my babies and I love them all (but Greggie gets watered first ;) )

I went from the 'official' Artemis Fowl site, and surfed around...a lot...most of the links weren't anything to go by, but then I found AFC. It was ok, not great. From there I found the vote for the top Artemis Fowl fansite, and got Fangathering. Seriously, this is the best one I found. I immediately joined the forum; at that time I didn't have any Fowl-obsessed friends to talk about this stuff with. I'm really glad I joined. The atmosphere is really welcoming.

Yes their is going to be a sixth one. There was anyway, but he's writing extra fast with a gun on his neck. I wonder who is doing that? *CoughHanyouKittyCough*" -minervaparzadio

I came home from a trip, where I read The Lost Colony on the way there and was bursting to join any Artemis Fowl site. I found FG and applies so fast that I made typos and had to retype them again. I had seen this site a few years ago, but wasn't as into Artemis Fowl then as I am now, and I had seen AFC, but it had seemed to big and unfriendly at the time (not that it is, but it seemed that way) so this seemed the logical choice.
Thanks to darvit and /b/for my signature. :D

One boring day in January, I just realized that I was very curious about the Artemis Fowl movie, so I went on Google.

I've visited all those old Artemis Fowl fansites before, and they were all offering the same information. So I searched a bit more.

I went to the Artemis Fowl movie page/forum on some movie site called countingdown.com [or something, I forgot XD] and then I saw MichaelM post a link to FG, saying that it has some movie information, etc...

So I bought his sales pitch and clicked his link. XD

I looked around the site, and I thought it was pretty cool. I checked the forums, and then I saw that there aren't many members yet... And I thought, "Hey, this is still a very small but growing community, and I see that it has a lot of potential.. I could be part of something GREAT!"

So I joined FG. ^_^

The End.

Or... the Beginning. ;)

I found here when MM advertised (sp?) FG in AFC and I joined up for a random reason I don't remember. :P

[s](Btw. BlackOpal, I don't know how unfriendly AFC is from your POV, maybe it's not as friendly as FG (I sort of agree on that...) but that's probably because you are used to another kind of randomness than what we have in AFC...)[/s]

I found it by Google... So I thought, meeh... Why not. I've joined many forums like this, but I dunno, I'm just not as active on those others.

In that case they wouldn't have stuck around to answer the topic.
