Maybe, this is just a dumb idea of a weird mind, but let's see, if this idea will be in fruit.

How does it work?
  • Choose one post from somewhere of Fiver's Honeycomb.
  • Quote the post (best with link to the original source)
  • Tell your thoughts about this post
It could be a post that could be thought-provoking or a post that makes you laugh. Simply a post, you pondered on.

Please pick just one post to quote (not that you begin to write down the whole forum  :D )

I pick this post, because it describes the whole situation here in Fiver's Honeycomb during my absence. I had shut down my website and cut off my forum connections because I had some private stress and needed to back away to avoid a burnout (of course, costs did also play a role).

This post should be representative for the whole discussion about me and my website, that started after my absence. It showed me the solidarity of this community and the support for it's members. And it showed me, that my work is held in great esteem!! Thank you guys!!


Now, it's your turn ;) What posts budges you, amuse you or just make you laugh?

I picked that post regarding the inspiration for Hazel's character because it made me wonder about who would be the other inspirations for the characters of Watership Down, especially for example Fiver and Woundwort or even Kehaar.  I am not sure what you meant by 'budges' though but this post clearly stood out to me. It isn't funny though ;)

Maybe "affecting" fits better  :dandelion As German, I sometimes use wrong expressions. Please excuse!

But now back to topic:

Why did I pick this post? Easy: It simply shows the madness of this board's leadership :D

No, more serious: It shows, that Claws seems to have an empty piggybank :p

ENOUGH!!! Bloody serious now: Claws is an amazing guy! Like many other members here in the forum. Many of us are tuned to the same wavelength. And that makes it so great do be part of this forum! So this post should stand vicarious for the forum's members. To all others: Please don't feel overlooked :) The thread is called "Pick a post", not "Write down the whole board" ;)

AAAND it shows the helpfulness of Claws :yes

Thanks man, that was really touching :)

I love this post: http://fhc.soopergrape.com/index.php?topic=536.msg12674#msg12674

This topic about the character models was my very first attempt at seriously discussing the series, and the feedback I got from it encouraged me to keep checking the boards on a daily basis, getting more and more involved with them as I went.

It was truly a turning point and I can't even express how grateful I'm for all the replies, since they not only solved quite a few of my personal doubts, but showed me that I could ask about pretty much everything and still get positive, informative answers. That's the true spirit of this board, in my opinion.

EDIT: And what the heck? Hawkbit replied on December, 21... that's my birthday :O I also joined on Darkling's Birthday... I wonder if that's a sign :P

Situation normal, all f*** up! :D

Have you ever wondered how a normal meeting of the Owsla goes? Well, it is something along those lines :D Man, I do love this forum, its users and everything related to them.

And that post does a great job at portraying that love... both making me laugh and get mad at it. All at once :)

I'm confused and demoralized now. Are metal bats considered to be elil?

(And yeah, that does count as my thoughts on the subject) :D
