Latest Additions

2021-07-18
In September 2003, CK Guy asked about the CK 1-3 TileInfo format, and Andrew Durdin explained.
Dozens of neat pictures have been added to Commander Spleen's fanart gallery with his permission.

2021-07-04
flamebroiledchicken created the poll "What is the hardest Keen game?" in February 2001.
GMixer's art section now includes a second image, a cool Keen face made out of leather. Also, Mort's strips 44 to 56 have been added.

In June 2003, NephariteofIlian posted a link to an image titled "Commander Keen all grown up", an interesting interpretation of Keen as an adult, made by a fan nicknamed Qimm.
Added more art by guynietoren, but his section is still not complete. The aforementioned picture by Qimm and an avatar of SpikeNexus I had overseen can be found in the gallery now, too.

Sections

ezboard (April 2000 October/November 2007)
The direct predecessor of the present-day PCKF was part of the ezboard network. In May 2005, ezboard was hacked and thousands of PCKF threads were deleted  the reason why this archive was created in the first place. Many threads had already disappeared before due to ezboard's 500-topic limit for each (sub)forum. In late 2007, the community moved to a phpBB-based forum.

Jazz Mega Message Board (November 1999 March/April 2000)
For some months, Keeners were active in a subforum of Jazz2City's JMMB.

InsideTheWeb (1997 November 1999/March 2001)
It started with a fansite and message board run by Geoff Sims. Over time, various other Keen fans also opened their own Keen boards on InsideTheWeb, a service that existed until March 2001. The community moved on in late 1999, but there was still some activity until the site's closure.
