Why does AW have a forum dedicated to Celine Dion?

Because the original site owner (Jenna) wrote a Celine Dion biography, so this was a natural place for fans of both Dion and the book to hang out.

So as a latecomer I'm curious, what happened to Jenna?

Just speaking as an active member here and with no insider information, Jenna had a baby, had some personal issues to deal with, and perhaps wanted to concentrate more on her writing. Running a website as large as AW with a bunch of half-crazy (and sometimes fully crazy) writers can't be easy.

She gave AW to MacAllister, I think.

It's a good question. There can be no good answer.

The site was sold, not given away. I have no idea what the terms were, but you could send Mac a PM and ask her the details, if anyone is that curious to find out.

Some old history, since the question has been asked . . .

I believe that at one time there was an unofficial question about what should be done with the Celine Dion forum since it doesn't exactly fit in with a writing forum. My "vote" was to "grandfather" it in since the Celine Dion fans have always been so gentle and unassuming. Around that time there were a number of members banned because they sometime thought they could post anything they wanted under the "free speech" cause (hello, this is a privately-owned website); my question at the time was how many of the folks in the Celine Dion forum were ever a problem. The answer was none.

And, just for the record, anything I said about Jenna was previously posted by Jenna herself. I have chatted with Jenna privately but not about anything personal. Mostly I was getting her to send me autographed copies of a couple of her books to be used as gifts, which she very graciously and kindly did.

Both of those videos are a sign of one of two things:
1) Poor educations system.
2) They did not pay attention in geography for whatever reason.

I think the latter more likely. You can argue for poor education but it's hard to misinterpret a map as long as it's written in English.
