Artemis Fowl Talk
This is the general Artemis Fowl talk section. You can discuss anything from characters to weapons in here.
If it hadn't been for Eoin Colfer, the Artemis Fowl documentator, we'd know nothing about the child prodigy or The People. Discuss the author here.
Those Hollywood hotshots are making a movie about Artemis Fowl and his adventures with The People. Discuss the dramas, the suspense, the cast and crew (and the incredibly long waiting times) for the upcoming movie: Artemis Fowl!

-April Fools Day '07
A very memorable day - On April Fools Day 2007, the entire forums were invaded by Teletubbies! The admins and moderators turned themselves into the evil coat-hanger-headed monsters and proceeded to terrorise the forums. They were turned pink, and there was mass-chaos! Here you can view the forums and other bits to do with this day!
-April Fools Day '08
Hilarity ensued when the forum was taken over by a giant Coffee. vs. Cheese debate. People took sides, cheese was thrown, coffee was spilt, things got ugly. XD
The moderating team's headquarters; this forum is hidden, but it's still there! Stay away if you know whats good for you.
Well, now that you know your way around the forums, you should get to know the people. If you ever need advice or help around the forums, then here's where you should turn to:

Alot of people have been asking about what the title ranks are. Well, that title under your name changes as your post counts goes up. Sometimes Matt does "Persoanlised Rank Give Aways", where you can change your rank to something more, well, personal - but these are rare.
Please do not get offended if you see 'Troll' under your name as it is an automatic postcount-thingy. It is not personal, and we are not labelling you as a troll.
Here is the complete list of ranks:
Swear Toad 10
Tunnel Blue Spider 50
Mud Man 100
Golden Acorn Officer 1500
Council Member 2000
Ruler of the People 2500
Master of Haven 5000
Frond Descendant 10000
