    I dont think there is a Welsh FF myspace group, have to ask WelshGuy and Tim to be sure. :p Usually we recognise each other by our profile pictures, I don't think badges are necessary. :p

    And welcome Evey! Hope you enjoy your stay here. :D

    CR stands for Chapter Representative - basically, the Fan Force UK is divided into regions (Chapters) and each of those has a member who is elected as their representative. They liase between members and the board authorities (me and higher up) and work with members to keep their chapter active - in real life meets and on here.

    No FF-UK Welsh myspace as yet, I am working on a general FF-UK one though - check my groups on there (ta for the add btw :cool: ) and request an add. It has some work to be done on it.

    Welcome to FF-UK: Wales EveyLou :cool: :D
    You interested in attending a convention near you in Cardiff? Check here for details.

    2 new posters in one week! Is this some kind of record?

    We usually recognise each other at cons due to the massive leeks we have stuck to our shirts! :)

    Is it just me, or am I the only person in the world that just doesn't get MySpace??

    I mean, what happens? I don't get it? Your just there and you look at people? Wah???

    Means you can stare (throw darts) at pics of your RSA all day. If you so wish. The FF-UK one will just be a point of call for people on that site, like having a business card.

    Some people only chat to me via myspace when online, not everyone I know is a SW fan (no matter how scary that may be :p ). I also have two of my work colleagues on there, but they are just trouble lol. *checks to see if Joey is lurking, no, I am safe* :p

    Welcome Muse_nut

    Off to Wembley to see the mighty Muse? I'm going to the second date, i had tickets to the first one but they were seats so i sold them and got standing for the second, i'm not quite old enough to sit down yet at gigs. Then i'm seeing them again at the rick werchter festival in belgium the week after. Anyway, sorry about the ramble, it's always a pleasure to meet someone with taste

    So does this place actually have a CR anymore?

    Whats the dealio dudes?

    Good to see you again Revan. Though I fear your trip may have been in vain. It would seem that things have pretty much died a painful death.



    Hello Wales. Anyone out there?

    Only way a forum (including this one) is gonna work is if the regulars put an effort in. Make it an interesting place for any newcomers. That won't happen if the regulars keep away, and that's with or without a CR - the CR is only useful if you have people who want to meet for real. This is the way I see it, and if the FF-UK goes quiet and eventually is closed (or at least chapters not being used) then we have no one to blame but ourselves.

    *brushes down dust* Right, looks like I'm finally back on the net for good, I was worried we were going to loose it again for a minute there. So what's the damage report everyone? Who's still alive around these parts? :D

    I still occasionally lurk around

    At least i can't be accused of leaving the boards recently, I haven't posted consistently for a about 3 years :D

    But if there are meets afoot i'm game, provided my poverty allows it
