Poll Question:
Just wondering how many members of Candlekeep have heard of the Forgotten Realms Archives facebook group.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheForgottenRealmsArchives/

We have quite a few authors as part of out almost 6000 members. I was just curious as Candlekeep is the benchmark for Realms lore, and any support the facebook group could get from here, and vica verse, would be awesome.

Choices:

I have never heard of The Forgotten Realms Archives
I have heard of the FR Archives but am not a member
I am a member of the FR Archives
I don''''t use Facebook

(Anonymous Vote)

I am a member. Don't really post much. Like like a post or three every now and then...

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Wow ok, so it looks like we have a lot of Candlekeep scribes as members on Facebook. That is good to know, and makes me glad.

I posted that I don't use facebook. Its kind of a lie, in that I have an account, but I RARELY go there unless someone deliberately posts something that they want me to see (so like once every couple months).

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I am a member, but just got a 24 hour ban for having posted a link to information *on the publisher's own site* about the new Drizzt book being released. There's really no excuse for that kind of administrator behavior; even if the admins somehow think they are serving the author's interests (and one would have to question why a fan group feels that's their place), it is completely bizarre and irrational when the information is coming directly from the publisher. Shame on you guys.

I'm a member of the group, but nothing I've seen thus far has really grabbed my attention.

The thing is, I like the group, and a lot of authors participate, which is a great thing. But there's just no rational reason for this. Even on Salvatore's official forum, there are multiple threads discussing the news, so why is a fan group trying to suppress it? When they've deleted people's posts on the subject, I just shrugged and thought "Oh well, it's their group, they decide" but a banning over posting a link to the publisher's site is really a bridge too far. I hope this was something done by just one overzealous moderator.

I'm a member, but no longer use Facebook.

I've found that FB is a drain on my ability to create. In fact, I've enjoyed a great deal more being back here at Candlekeep as opposed to being on FB.

AD&D for me!

Now that R.A. Salvatore has confirmed the rumors of a new Drizzt novel being released, the Office Team of the Forgotten Realms Archives is now going to allow discussion of the topic. The reason post were deleted and members were muted is because we did not want to deliver false hope to our membership until the news was confirmed by reliable sources. We are all very happy to share in this news! The Forgotten Realms is alive and well!

Yes, I'm unbanned now. We'll move past this and focus on shared love of the Realms. Here's to more novels and more authors!
