Some visitors may have noticed that Pink Floyd Fandom Webmail has been changed somewhat. It has been integrated into the main Fandom site, so logging in will now be the same as logging in to the regular site. The URL has also changed, although the old one will still get you there.

This does not change anyone's email address.

New functionality has arrived

Posted by madhack on Jan 10, 2003

Well, we've been talking for a bit about adding new functionality, and the first of it is here with the arrival of the Discussion boards. Post your thoughts and opinions and interact with your fellow Floyd fans!

This is just a preview of what's to come. You might also notice the other two new areas, Albums and Users. The Albums section is an attempt to gather the disparate information available about the various Pink Floyd (and related) albums, DVDs, books, etc. into one place. The Users section is where you can go to sign up for an account, change your password, reset a forgotten password, and change your preferences. Both of these sections will be greatly expanded as more album information is made available and as more user functionality is enabled.

Note that you do not need to sign up if you already have an account for Pink Floyd Fandom Webmail; you can simply use the same username and password for the Fandom site now. Signing up from the Fandom page will automatically include a Webmail account, which can always be accessed from the link to the left.

Please enjoy the new services, and feel free to use the Discussion section's The Site board to make suggestions or comments about the new additions.

Please do report broken links to, if you should run across any.
