Scheduled downtime for forum & wiki March 8th
6 Mar, 2011 filed under: Site updates
I will be doing some maintenance next Tuesday, which means parts of the site—mainly the forum and the wiki and some sidebars that gather information from them- will be down for some time. You can read the full announcement here at the forums and I will be updating our twitter account to let you know when everything is back up and running. My apologies for the inconvenience.
New Robin Hobb interview

My apologies for the absence of RH news from thePlenty.net. I will try to get back on track over the next few days, and if I still miss something, please do let me know! There’s lots of exciting new things ahead this spring, so stay tuned!
The Young Adult Fantasy Guide published recently a fresh Robin Hobb interview. It deals with dragons, mushrooms, typical days and writing advice but no spoilers.

The original starting point for thePlenty.net, the fanlisting for Robin Hobb, has reached 500 members! A big thank you to everyone who has joined so far. :)
What’s a fanlisting? It’s simply a list of admirers of a specific subject. The listings are categorized and monitored by tFL.org network. There are no costs to join and you don’t even need a website of your own. You just sign up with your name and country to show your appreciation. :)
I discovered fanlistings in the early months of 2003 and was furious to find out I couldn’t join one for Robin because it didn’t exist. (Very few author/writer fls did at that point.) So I had to of course start it myself, and that’s how this site was born. Although I included news about the books from the start, I certainly didn’t envision the site to be this big one day. The fanlistings here are now just a small part of the whole, but for me every milestone is still a reason for celebration. Please consider adding your name to the list if you haven’t done so already! :)
Join the tangle / 6 years of plenty

Can you believe it’s already been six years since I uploaded the very first version of the Plenty? Here’s how it looked! In the beginning, it was just a fanlisting with some basic information and small news updates, and even hosted by someone else. But thanks to you, the visitors, the site has grown and changed quite a bit, now has its own domain, and since the wiki and the forum were added I now consider this to be more “ours” than “mine”. :) If you have any ideas about what you’d like to see here in the future, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line!
Talking about the fanlisting that started it all, it’s nearing a 500 members mark (from 41 countries!), and I have just revamped the layout and otherwise polished it a bit. Take a look, and please consider adding your name if you haven’t done so already. :)
