Feel free to swing by and reflect on what brought you to NFA, when and why. I'm sure others would love to hear your story!

Other things to consider:
How long have you been a member?
How did you discover NFA?
How many hours do you spend here?


---

I was a fanfiction author on our parent site, but only just barely. I only began writing fanfiction in April of 2007, yet by the locking of the fanfiction threads the first week of June I was one of the people others were looking to for a solution. In an attempt to diplomatically solve the problem, several of us came up with the idea for this site, Adam presented it, everyone came aboard the idea bandwagon and, after several hours of grueling labor, NFA was born.

I used to basically live here. I had a job which allowed me to have NFA up in the background all day. I had a lot of free time. I wrote a lot and read EVERY SINGLE STORY posted by EVERY SINGLE AUTHOR at one point. I really wish I could still be online as much. I feel like a lot of the new people don't really know me. Folks tend to remember those who read and comment on their stories. :)

I joined sometime in July 2007. It was in April 2007, with the approach of the end of season 4 (the first season I had seen from the start) that I had started looking online for NCIS fanfics. After getting lost several times in the internet, I settled in on ff.net in July 2007 and started writing and posting there. There were many fantastic writers...iheartGibbs, Ozgeek, Enthusiatic Fish, to name a few. (I was just in awe of Teri's works! And I still am. :) )

Ozgeek soon invited me to join the NFA (she was recruiting Tim writers), and I think Barbara encouraged me to do so, too. And so I did. But I lurked here for a month, trying to figure out the forum, before I started posting. I was delighted to find that Teri and several other "names" I knew were already here!

Now, a lurker no more, I can't shut up. :) I'm on several times a day; who knows how many hours. I love this place. :madhop:

I joined (also at Oz's invitation) in June of 2007, I think...May or June. It was right around when the Hinky's were happening and I had no idea what that meant. I settled in rather quickly on the old site and haven't looked back...except for some grumbling when we were shifting sites...and then shifting sites again and I had to move my stories (and I still haven't moved them all. I'm so lazy...).

The site didn't open until June 4, Teri. The first Hinkys were on June 15. So you must have joined us within our first couple of weeks.

My arrival was a bit of a whirlwind accident. Within the space of a week I joined our parent forum, discovered fanfic (thank you, Chan!) got referred to 'a new website' which was of course NFA (thanks, Rach!), started my own fanfic, and sat through the first Hinky Awards ;D

Oh, and also got accused of being a cyber-stalker. In my first week in fandom. Geez, love you guys too :P

I was on the the parent site, but I never posted fanfic there. I only posted stories on fanfic.net and the NCIS fanfiction archives (which has now lost the link to my author name and stories but they are all safely stored on the NFA story board now).

I kept tabs on the discussions about locking the fanfic threads on the parent site but since I didn't post my stories there, I didn't contribute.

When they set up the very first NFA, iheartGibbs emailed me and invited me over. I'll have to check on the date if I still have the email/PM. They had even set up an author board for me already (but I was not the first), it was that new. I asked them to change the author board name to my fanfic.net login name. That would have been a tough Trivia question - what was my original NFA author board name - ozgeek_40.

NFA was the only place you could have discussions on fanfic as it relates to the show. Although Special Ops had a fanfic area, they were very touchy about shipping in stories or on avatars or banners. They had suffered shipping wars and sought to eliminate the problem by confining shipping to certain areas. I'm not a big shipper but I preferred the NFA approach of complete acceptance of everyone elses ships. Everyone was free to have avatars and banners promoting pretty much any relationship - it was all good. We have the occasional ship-tiff but nothing that gets out of hand.

I quickly started advertising NFA and recruiting all the good McGee writers I thought I would like to get to know better. I remember I advertised one Hinky award too well and someone thought I was trying to canvas votes for my own stories. If anything, I was destroying my chances by inviting such good writers over.

I'm here most days. A little during work times when my programs are running and at night after the kids are in bed. Since I'm in Australia, that co-incides with late night US then morning US.

And I thank you for that. It took me completely by surprise at the time but I'm not really a people person and sometimes these human creatures interpret my actions in a completely random way. It didn't bother me so much as astound me. I didn't even win many awards so if I was trying to drum up votes, I didn't do a very good job.

I've been around since the start. I was on the parent site as well and moved with Barbara and the others. :) I haven't been on as much on this site as I was in the beginning. I miss y'all. :)

I joined in June of 2007, too, and I also came over at Oz's insistence. ;D Haha. That wasn't a case of being a McGee writer, though, but I was betaing a story for her that focused on McGee & Ziva (Freedom - see, I even remember the title!) and Barbara had the McGiva Challenge going on here and she thought I might like it. I was intrigued and came over and it took me a little while to get integrated, but as you all know now, this is my favorite place on the net. :grouphug:

I joined NFA right after my sister was joined which was sometime in October of 2008. I was looking for a good NCIS fan forum, and Tristianna told me to come here and meet you all. I have had so much fun here and I hope to have more here. The August Hinky Awards was my last say on whether I quit writing or not. I figured 'Hey, since no one really looks at my writing anywhere else, let's see what happens at this Hinky Awards' and two pieces of my writing actually won hinky awards.

I am continuing to write...and Tasting Poison has actually became a series. You are some of the best friends a writing chick like me could ever have. I am glad to have met you all and I can't wait to see more new faces and enter more Hinky awards.

Ashley

I joined the site at the end of October of 2007. I was on fanfiction.net and I was a fan of our old admin's series there and was in the middle of reading it at the time. Out of curiosity, I clicked the link in his ffn.net profile, which took me to the original NFA board on proboards (I'm talking the old one, with the grey background). I don't spend quite as much time here as I used to back in those days, but I hope to change that.

The old site tells me I registered February 29th, 2008.

I can't even remember how I found out about this place. Might've been because of fanfiction.net. I wasn't a newbie to fanfiction, but I was somewhat new to NCIS. And you know how it goes when you get interested in a particular fandom, right? You just gotta write for it, no matter how terrible your ideas are. ;)

I joined November 18, 2008 after Cloak aired.

I can't remember how I found this site but I know I was spending a lot of time on ff.net reading every McGiva story I could find. Thank you Sherry for that. ;D But I imagine I probably saw NFA somewhere over there and got curious which led me to here and as they say the rest is history.

The time I spend here varies. Sometimes I'll login to check out new posts. And sometimes it is to review stories. If I have a lot of time to work with and no interruptions I can spend a couple of hours logged in. It really just depends on what is happening or who is here.

I joined the first NFA board, way back when. Oz invited me from FanFiction.Net, as she did many others, though I don't think it was because I was a McGee writer (at that time I had posted like 2-3 stories or something like that, and none McGee-centric). And I was extremely new to NCIS fandom. According to the FF.Net PM I digged up from my inbox, she asked me on November 29th, 2007, so it would have been on that day or sometime around that date. And I check NFA everyday, usually in the morning before Uni and then other times during the day. Though whether I login and post depends on what I'm doing and how much time I have; some days I have more time than others (I've got two weeks of holidays after this week, so I'll be around more). ;D

I first came across the first board in 2007, I was searching for NCIS fanart/pictures. And saw several on NFA. (Still have them saved on my computer if I remember correctly.) Later that year in October I joined TV.com, heard about NFA there, but I didn't join until Emma told me about it (I'd already known her for a while through ff.net). She said that she'd just joined an NCIS forum (NFA) and I had a look and I joined a day later. If memory serves, that was the 13th of November 2007. I remember because it was around Mum's birthday. And as for how many hours. . . oh gosh I don't even know. I come here everyday and always have the window open if I'm on the computer.

I found a link to NFA on someone's ff.net profile :P I went there to look a couple of times before I decided to join. And since then I've been here pretty much every day. Hours? I don't know :p Probably as many hours as I'm at the computer :P I always have a window open. But I'm mostly a lurker... :P

I think joined the original NFA site in January or February or something like that last year, but I couldn't figure out how it worked so I was more or less a lurker and went back once in a while just to see if CJ had updated one of her SG-1 fics :P . I think I either found the site when I was browsing around for NCIS fanfics on Google or maybe through somebody's profile on ff.net. I seriously don't remember.

Anyhow, few months later I found the second NFA site and joined it in April last year, but I couldn't really figure out how that site worked, either, so I kind of forgot about it until I stumbled across a link to the Story Board on Teri's ff.net profile two months later and through a link there found my way back to the second NFA site. I tried to join again but noticed that I already had joined and then I finally managed to figure out how to post and have been active ever since. ;D

I joined the site originally in early 07. I was searching for more NCIS sites and stumbled upon it, joined, and then I just kinda forgot about it. Then in October 07 Loz invited me to join, I realized I already had and I got into it. At the momeny I spend time on here when I have it. Mostly in school holidays.

And I was extremely new to NCIS fandom. According to the FF.Net PM I digged up from my inbox, she asked me on November 29th, 2007, so it would have been on that day or sometime around that date. And I check NFA everyday, usually in the morning before Uni and then other times during the day. Though whether I login and post depends on what I'm doing and how much time I have; some days I have more time than others (I've got two weeks of holidays after this week, so I'll be around more). ;D

Not everyone I invite writes McGee. Every now and again I just go out and read new writers on the ff.net NCIS pages and I checked you out because of your user name: my daughter's name and her favourite colour. When I read that first story I thought you were in your 20s or possibly 30s - such was the maturity. I think I gave you your first FF.net review. I couldn't believe it when I found you lived in the same city. I've only met one other person from Adelaide in all my time in NCIS boards and she lives within walking distance.

Anyway, you seemed like a good person to have around the site - despite your non-McGeeist writing.

I can't even remember how I found out about this place. Might've been because of fanfiction.net. I wasn't a newbie to fanfiction, but I was somewhat new to NCIS. And you know how it goes when you get interested in a particular fandom, right? You just gotta write for it, no matter how terrible your ideas are. ;)


That's when you registered on the old site, but you were with us on the site before that. :) The old, old one with the grey background. Definitely.

Yep, you gave me my first review. I squealed so much when I got it. :P ;D And I remember you commenting about your daughter's name and her favourite colour and the Adelaideness of me. You're the first NCIS Aussie I knew, and still the only one I know in Adelaide. LOL, I would have been sixteen back when I posted my first NCIS fic - so a few years off my 20s. I write McGee now, quite a bit actually. It's fun. ;D

I joined about a year ago, I remember that the NFA was changing forums and I was a bit confused at first. I came over because I used to read a lot of fic at fanfiction.net and in descriptions of stories, several of my favorite authors put that it was for an NFA challenge or NFA Hangman prize. I wondered what the NFA was searched it on google and came up with this site. Been hanging around ever since.

I joined in March 2008 – having lurked around for a looooong time! I most certainly wasn’t recruited by anyone – I just gate-crashed….I still feel a little on the edge of things ‘socially’ because I’m hardly ever on when anyone else is - and even when I'm on it's for about 30 minutes - but I do still love reading the stories and leaving my comments!
I was so utterly amazed by the wealth of talent on NFA, that it felt really cheeky to actually put something of mine on here - not that I ever expectd anyone to read them...but some people do - and when they do - it's a GREAT feeling!!

Last few months this forum has been overcrowded by fanfic stories. We all appreciate your hard work, but some users have started complaining about the fanfic taking over the entire forum, and after talking to a few valuable members of the forum, we've come to an agreement to lock all the fanfic threads. Each fanfic writer should now post their fanfic stories in their personal blog (or just move their already-created fanfic to their blog). This will help to bring the forum back to normal state. This topic will be pinned at the top of the forum, and every fanfic writer can use it to post a link to their blog, so the forum members could be aware of a new fanfic posted. Also, please do not discuss fanfic in this topic, but use it only to post the link of your new fanfic (don't post the story here). Thanks, and I hope everybody understands why we had to do this.


This was the official post that we got from the master as he locked our boards

So Adam came back with this and this is how our wonderful NFA site was born out of the want to write:-

Hello fellow fanfiction writer / reader! We hope you're enjoying your time on the TV.com NCIS Community Board!

Due to an energetic debate and sweeping changes to the posting rules here at the TV.com NCIS Forum, and an overload of brilliant NCIS fanfiction writers, readers and stories, the ingenious Adam (staindredglass; me), along with help from the lovely Barbara (iheartGibbs), has set up the TV dot com: NCIS Fanfiction Addiction at the following website:

http://nfacommunity.proboards62.com/index.cgi

The forum has been set up for users of this forum to post and read other's NCIS fanfiction and has been designed as a better alternative to posting and reading here. The site is user-friendly, set up with readers and writers in mind, with subforums created for each writer. You will be able to post, discuss and find whatever authors, stories or issues you want very easily.

Anyone is welcome to join the site and post and discuss whatever authors or stories you like. You may join the forum as whoever you like, although it is recommended that you stick to your TV.com username for easiest recognition. You may then post or comment on whoever's fiction you would like to.

We welcome all authors and all your stories. If you'd like to be added as a writer to the forum, and therefore receive your own subforum, please post in the "Request Official Author Status" in the 'All Users Come Here First' board and a moderator will create it for you.

Please read a user's introduction or sticky thread that they may have in their own forum as it may contain important information. Some may have particular requests or suggestions for you that they'd like you to read.

And please, please, please, read the All Users Come Here First forum before posting ANYTHING!

Adam (staindredglass) is the Administrator of the forum, along with Barbara (iheartGibbs) as Vice, and Jen (cala_lily_06), Tony (AlbertBester) and Sam (hewey89) as moderators. Please let any of them know if you have any questions or queries.

Please try and respect the rules and conditions of the forum. A lot of hard work was put into setting up this site by the administrators and it would be a shame to have the site not run smoothly.

Have fun with the site and we hope to be reading or hearing from you soon!

The Staff of the NCIS FanFiction Addiction

I was here from the start really.
I was also one of the ones on Tv.com who had just started fanfic writing and was dismayed by the thread locks, but there was a blog (Adam's) saying about the making of a new fanfic site. So I joined it when it was up and running. I've been there through the many changes. The first Hinky's, the first SeSa, the first members, admins and games. I remember wracking my brain to try and identify the film clips (usually with fmaily help).

I used to be on here a lot, everyday after school. But now it's hard to keep up with it alot. I don't go on the games as often as I used to and don't know as many people. I still try every now and then but it is hard.
This site has meant a lot to me and I always make sure to come on even if it's just to check new posts.
It's quite amazing it's being going for so long really.
This place holds a lot of memories for me that I won't forget :D

Happy place, Happy times, Happy people.

I have been writing fanfiction since May 2003 probably even before that but that was the first time I posted at FF.net and I have been in awe with other writers and I love reading fanfiction just as much as I love writing it.

I just love crime shows I always did, so my main focus was on CSI, for a long time. I had seen commercials about NCIS but it always was on tv when CSI was on ... lucky me so I obviously always choose CSI. But in September 2007 I finally found some time to watch NCIS ... it took about ... meh 10 minutes before I was hooked. So in a matter of weeks I had seen every episode. I missed quite a lot of sleep to watch the episodes because I just couldn't stop watching. And I read a couple of fics and I got this idea for a fic and I just have to write it or I will go INSANE ... if I have an idea and I don't write it down I can forget about sleep ( and I am not even kidding about that ) so I needed some info and I landed at NFA.

I immediately signed up and well I am still here, and I know that my current post count doesn't show it but I really love this site my life has just been so busy. But even when I am not active I always check in. I think that we have a wonderful group of people here who are always ready to help out.

When I came to this website it was barely a couple of months after I had sworn never to sign up for a forum again because of things that happened. On a different forum, but I am glad that I made the exception.

:confetti:

I basically followed Sherry who told me to join when I commented on one of her stories elsewhere (most likely lj) and I think I joined the forum in July or August -2007-, but only became a more regular member around mid October. One of the first things I remember is Adam randomly yelling at me for joining, so at first I was pretty sure I wouldn't be back until I realised that that was pretty much his normal behaviour.

In October I became a hangman addict and then basically spent the time until December randomly playing hangman in any minute I could spare, feeling cheated that most other players were in the States and playing while I was sleeping. *g* Then in December I was busy with the SeSa and basically got to know everyone involved with it that year at least somewhat because obviously I needed to forward requests and questions and advise people who felt blocked and such.

I think around that time I basically knew all the regulars, then life happened and now I'm on a lot at times and not at all at other times. But hey, some of my favourite chatfriends frequent this place and I've had the honour and pleasure to meet two of our most awesome members and talk to a couple of the others on skype. :hug2col:

I joined Sat Apr 25, 2009 12:46 pm, according to my profile. ;D I had written my first fanfic [One Last Goodbye] in Oct. of 08. I had started posting on fanfiction.net already, which I had been reading on for... three, maybe, four years. I was so happy with the responses and the feeling of writing NCIS Fan fiction, that I kept doing it.

I then searched out new places to post, and found NFA on an internet search. I joined the board immediately and awhile later here. It was about two months before I did anything with this account. What a waste of time! I love it here! :romance-heartsthree:

Depending on the rate of how busy I am, I can spend any where from one hour, [minimum] a day, when on a weekend or summer I've been known to hang around like... five. ;)

I joined at the end of July, so I have only been here six weeks.

I came here to read fanfic (with no real idea of writing any myself), lured over by a post I saw on the NCIS forums on CBS.com. This was in early July, with no new episodes to watch and nothing to read on the CBS site but arguments between the pro and anti TIVA faction there--in other words, the fifth circle of hell. A discussion of fanfic sprang up on one of the threads, with NFA's writing community highly praised and some of the more prolific authors mentioned by name. So over I came, and I read the recommended stories and loved them. Then I started on the Hinky nominees. I was just a lurker, and planned to remain so . . . but after a while I realized I felt like a member of the community even though I had never written any fanfic, so I joined to give feedback. They also serve who only sit and read and say, "Wow!"

Somewhere in the last month I started writing a little myself, which I'm sure is only a result of the company I've been keeping. Inspiration is contagious, and a page full of Challenges is a series of invitations to Write Something.

Many thanks to the long-time members who have posted the history of the site. I had no idea NFA had such an interesting history. Thanks to everyone who helped to create the site and make such a warm and accepting community for writers. It has been an amazing place to find.

I found NFA from a link in someones FF.net profile- I think it was Oz's. I'd seen it in a couple of peoples and I just got too curious so I clicked and signed up. We were back at the old old board back then, with the grey background. I spent all my spare time over there. I think it was in August or September. At any rate the site had been up for a few months and they were doing their (I think second?) Hinkys. I remember getting the reminder about noms, but I hadn't been reading NCIS fanfic for long so I didn't nominate everyone.

Then we moved, and then over here. I've never been one of the super-active-and-cool people, but I do love it here even though I don't come on as much as I used to.

Guernsey. From Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guernsey
Quote:
The Bailiwick of Guernsey is a British Crown Dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy.

As well as the island of Guernsey itself, it also includes Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou, Burhou, Lihou and other islets. Although the defence of all these islands is the responsibility of the United Kingdom[2], Guernsey is not part of the UK but rather a separate possession of the Crown, comparable to the Isle of Man. Guernsey is also not part of the European Union. The island of Guernsey is divided into 10 parishes. Together with the Bailiwick of Jersey, it is included in the collective grouping known as the Channel Islands.


Its a half hour flight from gatwick and a 2 hour ferry from St Marlo. So, I was pretty nervous and felt really cut off. But I love it here now. Although it's tiny. Something like 6 miles across with 60,000 people.
