Now that we're in the final countdown, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you, Haken, for keeping this site going for these past years. During all those long months while there was bad news for our 'verse, or no news, it has always been a treat to come to your site, such a great resource and community.

Pretty soon our little secret world's gonna hit the screen and bust wide open, and I'm betting that things will get quite noisy and frolicsome in here. Lots of houseguests and long-lost family gonna be showing up in about a week.

So I really appreciate all that you've done to help get us here. When I read your quote on the faq page, it says it a lot about you. And about all of us too. Thanks again.

What can I do to help?

"You can help me out by giving back to this online community of Firefly fans. You can write reviews, post messages, participate in chats, and anything else that you can think of so that you become a part of our community. Make this site as much a part of your online hangout as it is ours. Believe that you belong here." -Haken

Yep, thanks Haken.

I recently came across this poem. Made me think of my favorite website in the world: FFF.net.
Quote:

Some People

Isn't it strange some people make
You feel so tired inside,
Your thoughts begin to shrivel up
Like leaves all brown and dried!

But when you're with some other ones,
It's strange still to find
Your thoughts as thick as fireflies
All shiny in your mind!

- Rachel Field

Ditto.

Thanks for giving those who ay not speak anywhere else have an important and valued voice in this crazy world of ours!

Where else can a 16-year old guy (from British Columbia, Canada)start a successful Caption Game, even one based on an earlier-started even more successful Caption Game that is known throughout cyberspace? I am proud of my game, even to be called "The Other One" is an honour, because of the environment and community that surrounds it.

again, my thanks.

Count me in, I thank you for the best and only reason to brave the clunky cybermess that is my computer.
I have conversed w/more interesting people in these last few months here on this site than probably I have in half my lifetime outside it.

*bows to the cyber Browncoat*

You have our appreciation, sir.

Thank you Haken.

I think I can count Chrisisall in the list of interesting people...and Lissa, who would I be? Woody? Lilith? Cliff? Rebecca?

Freedom is Important because People are Important


Haken,

I've been visiting here since just before Firefly went off the air. Was here for the campaigns, the last ditch efforts. Was here for news of where to get the episodes in the correct order before the DVD came out. Was here for the DVD release. The giveaways to the Navy. Was here for every rumor. Was here for every fan-vid. Was here for the rumors of movies and the realities of movies. Was here for every back-stage snippet and fan/extra tale. Was here for the waiting, the pre-screen, the other pre-screen, the other pre-screen. Was here for the reviews. Was here for the idle talk in periods of quiet, the angry talk of politics, the thoughtful talk of philosophy. Was here for disasters and intrigues and storms and debates.

Am here now, and will be here tomorrow.

I like it here.

Hooray for Haken!!

When we watched the show on TV we had no idea there was this online community working hard trying to keep Firefly flying. The first inkling we had was when we got the DVD set a year later and watched the special features and found out about the Variety ad. I did a search and this is the first site I found, and boy am I glad I did. This is truly my favorite place online.

It's a good place to call home. Great job.

Now let's cross our fingers that everything holds up under the massive inflow of peeps we'll hopefully be seeing after next week.

Really good point, thanks for reminding. His site's bandwidth is prolly gonna get hammered here real soon.

I just went to the Amazon-based donation site thingie and dropped $15 into the kitty. About the price of a good movie and bag of popcorn, and Lord knows I've gotten that much fun out of this place and then some. I think it's cool that they let you donate as little as One Dollar. Every little bit counts, it's all good.

(If anyone else is also looking to toss in the price of a movie ticket toward FFF.net, you can do so here: http://s1.amazon.com/exec/varzea/pay/T39WWCGS4JYCV4 )

Thank you Haken!
This is, and always has been, the very best Firefly site. This was the place to hang out with the pain of the show canceling,
with wanting to discuss the unaired episodes from the DVDs,
with wanting to read fan fic and collect fan art because I just couldn't let go of the show...

and then came the long long drawn out excitement of getting the movie made: this was the site that always gathered together any exciting news as soon as it came out.

I hope you managed to snag some nice 'store items' from the Official Browncoats Board, because you really earned all those points by just keeping all the fans together and excited for all these years.

Not that your work is done! No, not by any means.
We have our BDM, but when exactly will we get the BDS (Big Damn Sequel)?
And I still hope for the BDS (Big Damn Spin-off):
I'm seeing a show about YoSafBrid...as a thief & swindler...altho I think they might have to implant a heart of gold in there somewhere...

but I digress. I mean to say THANK YOU!
I hope to continue hanging out here for many years, and I'm very grateful for what you've created here.

I thought this was the Andromeda board!

Are you kidding I can't even spell it. Hey, all props & love to Haken.

You know some would say if the movie goes big than you've been successful. I say regardless of that this has been a success. This crazy little board (which I still say is easier to navigate than any other board out there!!!) is a place for us folk sometimes it's a party, sometimes it's a debate, other times it's a refuge from the "real" world. But it's always a family and it's always a home.

America loves a winner!


Quite right. A very big THANK YOU is indeed in order. I frequent other FF boards, but none near as much as FFF.Net. It remains a constant to my fix of all things in the Firefly 'verse.

Job well done. It's been a great ride. Hope it continues for a good while longer!

Definitely, big THANKS to Haken!!

This was my first Firefly fan site. In fact, this was the first fan board I ever participated in. I've become part of the OB and UB since but this place always feels the most comfortable. This is HOME!

Agreed with everything above.

There's a lot of talk about how this movie wouldn't exist without the fans. Well, most of us fans wouldn't be here (or so well-organized) without Haken.

He deserves some kinda shout-out in the credits, methinks.

I remember in the "Early Days" (tm) of my obsession with Firefly, wandering the internet, searching for a place to be....and there it was, all shiny and invitin'-like...Haken's Fireflyfans.net.

thank you, Haken..and all of the people who have come and gone over the years...and those who will come again....for making such a cozy little place on the web for those desperate for a feeling of belonging in this crazy 'verse.
