Latest Additions

The poll "How would you rate Keen Dreams?" was posted by Snortimer in February 2001 (results available). He has been active in the Keen community since at least 1998 (with some absences) and was one of the ezboard PCKF's earliest moderators.
Cho'gall and Too Much Spare Time posted the notes for Commander Keen ringtones in August 2001. So take your Nokia 3210, 3310 or whatever and enter them. ;-)
Last but not least, a little discussion about Bounders started by Ilsoap in May 2000.

In 2003, Xtraverse created two very neat 3D versions of world maps from the Keen games. The images of the Shadowlands were posted by him in February 2003. Three months later, Xtraverse presented the cel-shaded Fribbulus Xax. For the two image galleries, he won the Keen Award for Best Graphical Artwork of 2003. In the case of Xax, Xtraverse also made a video flythrough, which was only posted in August 2006.
I added a discussion about the appearance of Vorticons from January 2004, too, which was started by RoboRed, a member who had been active since the InsideTheWeb days.

Ilsoap created a topic about ideas that flopped in October 2002. He and some other Keeners posted ideas that never got off the ground, such as a The Simpsons parody starring a Bloog family.
In April 2003, Djaser asked "How did you get into Keen?" Quite a few PCKF members shared their story.

Past Updates

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. 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.
