thePlenty.net 10 years giweaway!

2 Sep, 2014 filed under: Site updates, Internet, contest

This September, the domain name thePlenty.net has been online for 10 years! The site is actually about 18 months older than that—in the beginning this place was just a small fanlisting with a news sidebar, hosted by a kind stranger. But beginning in the autumn of 2004 with the move to my own space and the domain name, I started to add more content. With the addition of the wiki in 2006 and the forums in 2008 the Plenty has grown quite a bit. This August we had an all time record number of visitors. To celebrate this first decade, I’m running a giveaway!


theplentynet 10 years giveaway prize

Prize: a set of US paperback copies of Dragon Keeper and Dragon Haven with the Jackie Morris covers, both signed by Robin Hobb.
Open: to all residents of planet Tellus with an email address.
Closes : September 13, 2014 23:00 EEST (convert to your place in time). NOW CLOSED.
Winner: will be chosen by a randomiser.
Rules: leave a comment on this entry with a valid email address. If you win, you need to be able to provide a physical address where I can send the books. If for some reason you can’t use the comment form, you can email your entry to memories (a) the plenty dot net—please put “theplentynet giveaway” or something similar as the subject.
Good luck!

Updates everywhere!

7 Apr, 2013 filed under: Site updates, Robin Hobb

I guess it’s that time of the year. ;) I’ve just upgraded the forum script, and you can now easily browse them on mobile devices as well. While I’m still working on the wiki update and trying to fix all the errors and bugs that have accumulated, why don’t you head over to the official site robinhobb.com to have a look at the shiny new layout there!

First of all, my sincerest apologies for the lack of updates during the past few months—the reason is a mixture of real life events and computer problems. I hope to do some serious news blogging this week to catch up! For now, the most current news to take note of:
Robin Hobb will be joining /r/fantasy on Reddit on Wednesday, October 19th at 8:00PM (Pacific) for an “I am Robin Hobb—Ask Me Anything” session. Check out how that converts to your local time and join the chat!

ETA: You can now go here to read the Q&A session.

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.
