I think this topic should be sticky. Every few months newbies stumble into the fourms and eventually ask us this same question. EVery tiem I tell the story it gets shorter and shorter. I cant remember the specifics of my story anymore. Or maybe there is an archive of everyones story from a long time ago that could be sticky. Rockfsh and others could just add their stories along the way. Is this a good idea?

I think a friend told me about it, but I'm not sure - it was four and a half years ago.

For the record now it's stuck, in 2002 I was listening to BBC radio 2 and FWFR was the website of the day, I visited wrote a few reviews (at that stage all reviews were automatically accepted) then left.

I returned reasonably regularly then 2004 during a really crappy year at work with my then Head of Department FWFR was refound and I became addicted.

I have reclaimed 2 reviews form 2002, one has been edited and is now with it's new date.

Cheers

Last year I was spending a lot of time on a site called Pointless Waste of Time and followed a link they'd posted. The rest, as they say, is history.

Courier Mail newspaper in Brisbane mentioned it. Had a look. Laughed a lot. Told my brother, who morphed into Conan and the rest is history.

I knew you wouldn't believe me.

I found fwfr having read about it in the Guardian in April/May 2002. I submitted a couple of reviews - my earliest remaining one being on May 15th 2002. I returned once or twice over the next couple of months, but then I found the top 100 reviewers list and had to get in there. Then into the top 50. By then I was hooked and have just been a steady player ever since.

Oh and I got into the the top 100 reviewers list with a grand total of 21 reviews

I think I first heard about FWFR on a thread from the Space: The Imagination Station website (the Canadian Sci-Fi channel). People were posting their own examples (28 Days Later: Makes for weak movie ), so I thought I would check it out for myself...

I was looking up references to Halle Berry's infamous book reading, breast flashing scene in Swordfish and this site came up in google.
