Happy New Year, RAFians!

RAF Staff wishes all of you a very happy new year!

We hope 2014 was a fantastic year for you guys, and wish you an even better one this time round!

We had some interesting moments this past year, like the Revitalaissance which had various events - remember the RAFians posting letters from opposite ends of the globe to each other? Planning for the RAFcon 2015 is in progress too, if you think you can make it, give your input in the thread! The year ended with the RAF Awards, the results of which are already up on the blog.

We would also like to take this opportunity to wish our founding father er.. the elusive founder of RAF, Richard, a very happy birthday.

So have a great year, RAFians, and keep your fingers crossed for RAFcon 2015!

Happy Birthday RAF!

Richard's Animorphs Forum is officially eleven years old today!

Thank you to everyone who have helped keep us going for all these years and thank you, obviously, to Richard for making the forum in the first place. Here's to hopefully many more exciting years to come!

Also, remember that to celebrate there is a RAF Party going on all weekend (Friday - Sunday)! Come hang out with us! On the board. In the chat. On skype. Wherever! Just remember to follow the most important rule of any RAF Party: have fun!

Postcard Swap!

Like post cards from cool places (or just places where you don't live)? Like the idea of getting mail from RAFians?

Then you might want to head over here and join in on RAF's May event--a postcard swap! Send postcards to people. Get postcards back. Enjoy!

(Safety!Steph feels the sudden need to remind us all that you shouldn't give your address out unless you feel comfortable. Fun!Steph returns to say that there's more awesome events to come!)

RAF Reunion!

In an effort to revitalize our beloved forum, we are looking to have a RAF Reunion! What is this? This is where we try to encourage old member to return, while making an effort to make RAF a more awesome and fun place for old and new members alike!

What do we need from you?

Well, aside from your presence (on RAF, in Chat, on skype) of course, we are hoping to get as many old RAFians as we can for a couple days next month (March 15-16, coinciding with March's RAF Party). Staff will be doing our best to get the word out via various social networking channels, but you can help, too! Poke RAFians you talk to or have on Facebook or however you can get ahold of people. The more people we have, the better!

You can see more on this and other ideas we're throwing around to get RAF more active again here! We also have a brainstorming thread for ideas on events and activities we can host on RAF, which you can find here. And a thread trying to organize a big RAFcon for 2015 here!

What RAF Generation are you?

Richard's Animorphs Forum is old.

RAF is so old, RAFians (members) come and go like members of a family. Depending on how long you have been on RAF shows not only your love for Animorphs, but for our Animorphs community.

Enter RAF Generations. An ongoing project to group our members by RAF age.

Let's say you joined RAF (now Classic) in 2003, that means you're a part of a very elite set of RAFians who joined in the same year we began. You'll be in Generation 1. You'd probably be surprised to know that a few members from Generation 1 are still active, Richard, Ash and Asmo just to name a few.

Now let's say you just joined our awesome community. You'll be in Generation 19. That's right, over 18 generations have passed in 10 years. Now the methodology on categorizing generations prior to 2010 is not an exact science (it depends on if you remember posting around the same time as other RAFians). However since January 2010 a new generation begins every 6 months.

Interested in learning more? Interested in which generation you fall under?

Visit the RAF Generations main thread and join the the discussion.

Audiobook Revival Auditions

Hey, RAFians, how would you like to be a part of a truly awesome project? Now's your chance! The Animorphs Audiobook Project is back, and it needs your help!

Think you'd make a good Ax? Or maybe you've got what it takes to voice Visser 3? Mr. Guy36 is currently holding auditions for the roles of Ax, Visser Three, and Chapman. Click here to get the information and submit your auditions.

Be sure to keep an eye on the Audiobooks Project in the coming months for updates. I know I will be!
