You heard right.

Fiver's Honeycomb is getting 5 years old! Back in 2011, :hawkbit created this place.

Meanwhile, we're the only active Watership Down Community, and this owes to you, dear members of Fiver's Honeycomb.

For this occasion, I've created with Claws a new header.

So let's celebrate here the fact, that we're older than Efrafa :frith :cheers :frith
(btw a nice slogan by Claws)

Thank you all for your support!

Very nice header, Darkling! I also like the slogan.

What can I say? This forum is amazing. Firstly,  for making it to its 5th year, and secondly, for doing well. Our community's active, members are kind and supportive, we can talk about anything...this place is all-around great.

So a big thank you to Hawkbit for making this place and to all the Staff and members who have made it thrive. The members are the essence of any forum, and ours are fantastic.

Happy 5-year anniversary, Fiver's Honeycomb :celebrate

Wow, dear Frith, 5 Years already!  :red   I really regret, I didn't join this nice community much earlier! :)

A huge thanks for the administrators, running a forum like this, and to all the nice people participating! It's always fun to check what's new, looking or reading all the nice fanworks.

Raise your paws, on the next 5 years!  :woundwort3

That's right....the anniversary!  Unfortunately, I'm always tied up Mondays, so I might not be able to party-hardy here with the rest of you!  I will try though! :hawkbit2


Just to give credit where its truly due--for the past two years, three people here have really made sweeping changes that have kept this place alive and going--Darkling, Myrkin, and Claws.  Without them, Fiver's Honeycomb would look very different--perhaps not be around, because I wouldn't have had the time to keep up with it.

Please thank them too!
