View Full Version : Black Library FanFiction?

13-08-2010, 23:58
Hi there, having been out of touch with the BL forums for some time now I realised today, to my horror, they were gone.

My search-fu is questionable at best so I apologize if this ones been discussed before.

But still: What happened to it, and why? Will it be back or is it gone for good?

And most important: what happened to all the (more or less) talented people contributing their fanfics on a regular basis? Is there a new forum somewhere where everyone went and continued with the good stuff?

Thanks in advance.

(Added: Aside form this very forums 'stories' -section that is!)

Didn't you have forums before? Where are they now?

We no longer have forums because we have our Facebook page, blog, twitter feed and there are plenty fan run forums which a search on your favourite web search engine will provide you with plenty choices.

Imo, a Facebook page and a Twitter feed are terrible substitutes for a forum.

Have a look here (http://z6.invisionfree.com/bljunkies/index.php?act=idx). But don't tell anyone I told you.

The Bolthole has numerous posters from the old forums, including several BL staff. Presumably it is kept on the down-low because GW Headquarters believe fraternising with customers weakens a staff member's resolve and may cause problems when the psycho-conditioning that forces them to assassinate anyone caught playing with non-GW models comes into play.
