I hope Tarboarders are all well. It's great to see the Tarboard ticking along so nicely.
I have started a Wikia wiki
and it would be great if people started using and editing it.
It's been a long time away from Ransomish things, which I left rather
abruptly (without saying goodbye properly) having found it taking over
my life somewhat. I had so many dear Ransomish and Tarry friends whom
I have missed very much over the years.
Happy to advise that I am married, one long and a short, living in and
fixing up an old church in Warrington near Dunedin.
I have been dabbling in Wikipedia for a couple of years and find that
it is not ideal for discussing fictional works; a brief visit to
http://harrypotter.wikia.com showed me the potential of a non-factual
wiki as compared to the rather fusty encyclopedic approach of
Wikipedia. Wikis generally compare favourably with fan-sites like
http://arthur-ransome.org because of not requiring constant maintenance (phew! tell me about it) from an inner core, but can flourish from the minor twiddles of many users from all directions.
If anyone wants to get in touch, eel-mail me at peter dot dowden at gmail dot com.
