Fiji and Friends (FaF) is a tribute federation to the thousands of patriotic Fijians (TPF) in Oceania.

With humble beginnings as an in-joke of The Alliance, the TPF have expanded so their voice is heard as one. Everyone knows that they now hold the balance of power in Oceanian life.

Our aim in the FaF is simple: To ensure the rightful place within Oceanian society of these great peoples!

History

Realising that they needed a physical puppet as an instrument of political discourse, the TPF realised that the creation of a federation was needed. Getting on the blower, they gave zambora a buzz who fearing their wrath, got to work straight away gathering support. This eventually led to Charlie_Foxtrot creating the fed on the 29/03/2009. Recruiting from the new breed of Oceanians, he enlisted the help of keeefer, bwejup, (founding members) Esquatcho_Mundo, lord badger, ninefourfour, Rusty00, TT--TT and seorang to get things moving.

With plenty of OT the federation went from strength to strength and attracting a wide variety of members through the start of 2010. Things started to change on 20/7/10 when we welcomed our 21st member, then in August some well known HT folks saw the light and joined up. A major milestone happened in early October when the FAF hit 50 members.

The federation continues to grow as more people, particularly those outside of oceania start to realise that they cant stop the Fijian world hegemony!

Join us, or fear the TPF!

Staff

Led by Charlie_Foxtrot, 'leader of the coups' at team of dedicated staffers help make the FaF what it is. Well really it is only zambora 'Travelling Wilbury' who actually does any work around the place, coercing and jostling people to get involved. The rest of the membership seem to just enjoy laying back in a hammock, sipping a pina colada or whatever cocktail is on special, resting in the gentle sea breeze and listening to the gentle crash of waves on the shore.


Main Attractions

Pop into the FaF forums and you are going to come across some pretty important stuff. Some if will make you smile, some of it will make you cry and some of it will make you want to slip off all your clothes and cool your naked body in the cool pacific ocean.

Bula! Im new to the FaF

The obligatory introductory thread for all new members to say gday and for existing members to say gday back!

Created and stickied sometime in october 2010, as the original welcome threads were frankly all over the shop and incoherent, it has finally created a welcome doormat for new FaFers.


Fijian Sayings

The Fijians love to philosophise. Check out this thread for all your quotes and sayings.


Esquatcho's Famous Bookmarks Thread

Legendary across the world, this collection of infrequently updated bookmarks aims to rival the library of Alexandria for content.

Started by its namesake once his number of bookmarks maxxed out, it was originally stored in the Queensland forums. However, issues with archiving meant they needed a place to be stored permanently. The moment they were stickied within the FaF, Esquatcho and his bookmarks had found a new home.

Over time the collection has grown through the help of fellow FaFers.

Esquatcho is always fully intending on updating them with his recent bookmarks, but never seems to get around to doing it.


Ninefourfour's Sandbox

Originally started as a place for ninefourfour to come and test out tables and other forum stuff, it fast became the defactor general chat forum of the FaF. Whilst it was maintained at the same time as an actual legit general chat thread, it fast became the home of bogans, interlopers and those generally wanting to be severely OT.

Known as the start of many FaF in jokes, it unfortunately got archived sometime during late 2010.

The Flaming Goat

One of the first sandbox in-jokes concerned the flaming goat.

Goat? We hear you say. Well yes, goat. And it is on fire, hence making it a flaming goat.

First noticed by zfreez in the sandbox, he wasnt on fire initially. He was rather happy just wandering the sandbox. However, he was drawn into a complex web of deceit and bbq regarding one of ninefourfour's mentoree's receiving knowledge not sanctioned by himself. However, like the phoenix, the goat arose in flaming form to live another 500 years.

Interestingly the investigation into the flaming goat was Esquatcho's first to become an inspector...

Esquatcho has since taken the flaming goat as his pet and together they traverse the astral plane of Hattrick looking for pants.

Chaos & Mayhem

Choas (Originally named Ralph) and Mayhem turned up on a beach one day during a session of Vodkabulcanuts.

They have been actively helping out all over the world ever since and forgetting about their chores at home, which include delivering drinks to those that reside in the hammocks and surfing the beaches to keep those pesky sharks at bay.


Season league and cup threads

Each week a new league match link thread can be found stickied for you to highlight any important matches you have.

A new cup thread is created each season for managers to banter about.

FaFers love their food. But particular recipes have fast become FaF legend.

That is all.

Pastbake

The legend of pastbake started when Dave3889 made a simple typo in a thread aimed at finding out some general info about FaF members. True to FaF style, this typo was picked up and pastbake and its tasty time travelling flavours became an FaF favourite.


FaF Cocktails

Below are some favourite FaF cockatail recipes
