1) How often do you visit this forum?
Every single day, and sometimes twice a day if time allows

2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?
The same as above, only usually five or six times a day

3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)
Oh yes, they make searching the site a lot easier


4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?
Yes, it is good to have the opinion of players as well as designers you know...


5) Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?

Never actually realised it was there until now, but I certainly will in the future once I figure out what it does.

6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the Products\Novels categories?
I live in the Running the Realms section, I could not go a day without it.

7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)
I'm afraid I cannot answer this question, because my rating isn't on the list. I shall have to go with 10, but 20 would be my choice.

1) How often do you visit this forum?
2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?
3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)
4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?

6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the Products\Novels categories?

1)How often do you visit this forum?

It varies, depending on the interest I have on the topics up for discussion, and whether or not I'm participating. It can be multiple times a day, or less than once a week.

2)How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?

Once or twice a month. That bloody music can only be tolerated so often.

3)Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)?

Occasionally, but more often "no" than "yes." Given the infrequent updates, the information is very often news I'm already aware of (with regard to product releases) or don't particularly have any interest in (novel reviews).

4)Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?

Occasionally, but more often "no" than "yes." Being all too familiar with the accuracy and usefulness of some of the older fan-created articles, both from this site and other resources, fan material is something I generally avoid.

5)Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?

Not really, no.

6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the Products\Novels categories?

Sometimes, but not usually.

7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)

6.

Courage isn't the lack of fear but rather believing in and doing what you know is right even though fear is present.

Thought I'd post my answers since I'm feeling chatty at the moment

1) How often do you visit this forum?
Daily again at the moment, otherwise every other day.

2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?
Only when I want something from it, very rarely now.

3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)
Yes, I like to hear from the Travelling Minstrel and if something interests me I'll go take a look.

4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?
Definitely, I enjoyed reading some of the Campaign Journals, and would be interested in looking at usable adventures a la Dungeon magazine. Downloadable pdfs are always nice

5) Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?
Yes, religiously. It's the first thing I click on every time I log in.

6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the Products\Novels categories?
Whatever active topics interest me I visit, regardless of location.

7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)
A good solid 7 I think, make that an 8 if the regulars count as part of the site

Well met

Thank ye for your comments, Fibura Gauntlet. Alas, the closest we can get, at the moment, to meeting your needs would be the Candlekeep Inn.

1) I visit it at least once a day now that I've made this my primary FR connection since the death of the FR novels forum.
2) I surf around at least once a day on this site.
3) Very much so, yes.
4) I haven't really looked into those yet. I'm sure I'd be interested once I gave them a shot.
5) Rarely. There's typically so much I want to respond to that I go insane deciding. I usually just stick to a couple forums now. Hopefully I'll branch out.
6) I haven't yet, but I will.
7) I'd give it an 8.5.

hiya, i just joined this forum today so i can't really give you the imformation wanted from you, but once i've settled in, i'm sure i'll get back to you! thanks for your time.

1) How often do you visit this forum?
Everyday
2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?
Once a week, or once every other week.
3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)
Yes! The thing that stops me from going to the homepage is the annoying tune! (Sorry)
4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?
Aslong as the Fan material is of a high quality, I'm sorry but i'm tired of downloading a file and findings its very poor.
5) Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?
Yes, Every day! Where would I be without it!
6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the Products\Novels categories?
I love the Running the Realms section, Sages of the Realm, and the Adventuring in the Realm sections. I generally avoid the computer games section. WOTC News and Products sections are really useful also.
7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)
7 or 8. As so many others I cannot rate anything 10 (Look up the meaning of Idea in a dictionary ) Put it this way the WOTC site is a 7 on my scale!

Once upon a midnight dreary, while i pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore-
While i nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

1) How often do you visit this forum?

Well...I am here this morning, and was here last night..before that? June of last year I think.

2) How often do you visit the Candlekeep site itself?

Uh..same. Even less actually - my main interest is in this forum. Closed minded I know.

3) Are you interested in any of the actual site updates (as indicated on the sites Home Page)

I do not think I know enough to say.

4) Are you interested in fan-created articles on the site as well as official "canon" information?

Yes. I have a serious love-hate relationship with both: Fan related articles I want to incorporate into my PnP game (no problem) and the ALFA ("A land far away") Persistent world server I run (in this case, Menzoberranzan) - which IS a problem since we try to follow WotC cannon. Then...there is the problem with WotC cannon - sometimes, we really DON'T want to follow it. For example, in ALFA we have a Ched Nasad server created before the WotSQ series...well...if the creator had to reduce his project to a smouldering hole in the ground he is going to leap off Narbondel. So, while we try to stick to canon, sometimes its hard. Granted, we don't HAVE to...but...in the long run you really do if you are catering to as wide an audience as we are. Other wise, we find ourselves playing in a Faerun vastly different from the one represented in WotC's materials - and we are trying to create that world online, not RE-create it.

So, yes, love the WotC canon stuff and the fan-based stuff..but sometimes it also pains me - for example I just know they are going to kill off Danifae in the WotSQ books and I like her! I liked Yyssissyrl H'tithet the high priestess/merchant in Mantol Derith too and now she is dead as per the book Underdark - stop killing off all my girls dammit!

5) Do you use the "Active Topics" function of the forum?
Um,no.

6) Do you visit any other forum categories other than this "General Chat" or the Products\Novels categories?

Thats it mostly now. However, I am always expanding, rather than contracting the field of what I look at regularly.

7) How do you rate the site on a scale of 1-10 (1 being Low, 10 being High)

Hmm...I am not sure yet. I have just started back in perusing the site. Last time I showed up here all I really did was point out some of the inconsistencies in Condemnation (Matron 'Ghenni', description of Mantol Derith etc.), then parody it, then...disappear (P.S. Sorry R.B., I like most of Condemnation..but..there were a few things I had to make fun of/nit-pick).

Hey hey, thats it, survey complete. Thats my good deed for the day...or as good as any of my deeds for the day are going to get (I may not be an actual drow priestess of Lolth in real life, but I AM a lawyer...you can decide which is more evil...)

3) if relevant. might check that out as well.

4) maybe. sometimes.

5) everytime I'm here.

I try to visit here daily, but it doesn't always work, so...
Usually I visit the actual site almost as often as I do visit these forums.
I check site updates as they come and fan-based stuff is usually fun to read
Active topics -button is quite handy and I try to visit as many categories as I can.
I'd rate this site 9 in case of updating!
