Special Announcements
General Greeting for Prospective Members
Vince speaking. I just want to let prospective members of the Forum know that, thanks to spammers, moderation is ongoing and we are taking a no-prisoner approach to people wanting to sell Cialis/Viagra, hook us up with Russian models, let us know about the "next big thing" in EuroStocks, make sure we are supplied with dried coyote urine (seriously!), model ship kits, pre-made hammocks and the many items that THEY are convinced we can't live without. All new members will be moderated for their first few posts and then released for general posting. Any member noticing SPAM or inappropriate information is asked to notify the landlord at once. Thanks for your interest in the Pineapple Knot Forum... Dan, Ron, Walter, Tony and I all wish to welcome you and hope you will find what you need here... if not, email me! We will soon be sending out emails to ALL members just to see which emails are still valid.
Dan's Missing Pictures & Tutorials
Pictures posted by Dan are lost with the demise of his personal site. Nothing appears to have been picked up by http://archive.org However in memory of Dan, Fredz saved 19 of Dan's tutorials: http://pineappleknotstutorials.over-blog.org/pages/In_Memory_of_Dan-6042700.html
A few words and a request
Dan created a truly mammoth set of listings and links... Many are of interest to only a few knot-tyers and rope people, so - if you would - PLEASE go to your favourite forum and/or sub-forum and if there's a problem with a link, drop a line to the ADMIN so I can get into it and fix the problem. Note: also let me know if the link is dead so I can delete the particular listing. A listing with a dead link is worse than useless.
Passing of Dan Callahan (Dan-Alaska)
Hi, Ron here. I'm not what you would call an avid knot tyer, so I learned of Dan's passing long after the fact when I went looking for something I knew was posted here and found the forum closed down. Asking on a Yahoo! board, I learned that previous efforts to keep the forum open had not worked out. I know just enough to be dangerous, so thought I'd give it a try as a pay-it-forward to all of those who have helped me with the knotting I do. I was able to get the forum reopened quickly, and after a month of working with the hosting site owners, http://myfunforum.org , who were great by the way, I'm now able to access the Administrator functions. The parent site rules don't allow changing the site owner's name so you will continue to see Dan's name. Vince will be working on the details for a while and I'll help as necessary I will do my best to keep the forum open, and am grateful for those who have stepped forward to help with the day-to-day management. So we will see how this goes as a tribute to Dan and all he contributed. Thanks in advance, and pass a knot along for Dan. Ron
Passing of Walter Seltzer October 18th, 2014
Ron here, not Dan. Still haven't worked out changing the owner profile information. I was lucky to meet Walter once in Baltimore at a small knot meeting in April 2010 and we exchanged emails several times on knoting topics. He was a fine fellow, offering to help maintain this board as late as last July. He's listed as a moderator on many of the topic boards here. Ron
Forum Management
Extending a huge thanks to Vince Brennan of Frayed Knot Arts (code doesn't work here, have to copy/paste, sorry) [url] http://www.frayedknotarts.com/] [/url] for stepping up and taking over 99% of the forum management! I, Ron, will be back-up but Vince is doing the hard day-to-day work!
