FR is trading? O.o o.O whats their symbol?

I think you misunderstood. He probably didn't mean by that that they're on the stock market.

So......exactly what have they done this whole time?

There's really no way to know that until they decide to release more information.

What else could he have intended, though?

meh, my statement was probably the result of.....lost in translation deal. In america...Trading refers to the stock market or commodities.......but in britain it could mean simply that their "open for business" or that they've been doing business.

@Dracul: Exactly right, I'd say I'm trading if I was selling ice creams from a van, but obviously that's not on the stock market :)

No one from the US would understand what you meant if you said that. Just stating the reason for the confusion.

Indeed, trading in the UK refers to "the provision of goods or services to customers on a commercial basis". As such one could argue that a company only technically begins trading when it carries out such a business transaction (rather than when they are "open for business"), but the term could also refer to when they adopted Fen Research as a "trading name". In any case, as far as Companies House are concerned Fen Research Limited is a Private Limited Company.

Indeed. One could argue that a company only technically begins trading when it first provides goods or services to customers on a commercial basis, but I wouldn't be surprised if they used the term to mean "open for business" or "operating as a business". More precisely, they could have meant that it is a year since they adopted Fen Research as a "trading name" (i.e. a name which they conduct business as). In any case, as far as Companies House are concerned Fen Research Limited is a Private Limited Company.

Job Vacancies:

Fen research is recruiting! We currently have two vacancies:

-Software / Games Developer
-2D Graphics Artist

To apply just send your CV and cover letter to: jobs@fenresearch.com

News:

19-Sep-2011: Added a new 'Job Vacancies' section which currently has 2 jobs in it.

17-Sep-2011: Ok since Facebook seem to think I'm not me, I've set up a twitter account instead, please follow me on twitter! Hopefully once a few people follow me there I will feel a bit better. I'm also going to post my news on this website from now on, but please follow me on twitter so you get notified about updates. Thanks!

16-Sep-2011: Facebook disabled my account because they thought it was a 'fake account'. My guess is that someone reported me for impersonating myself, and rather than actually check if it was true or not they just disabled the account! They didn't even contact me. Obviously I'm a bit upset about this. I have sent them a (somewhat redacted) copy of my passport, so hopefully they will re-enable it again eventually. However it has made me realise that centring all my communication around Facebook as I was originally planning to do would be a bad idea!

3-Sep-2011: Fen Research is 1 year old today! It's hard to believe its been a year already! Work is going very well, although its becoming apparent just how ambitious what we are trying to create is. Still very confident we can pull it off though!

I hate Facebook don't get me wrong it serves a purpose but Google+ offers a better alternative and I doubt the F8 profile changes will alter my opinion on the matter. If it weren't for the userbase I'd never use it...

On topic now following their twitter, I won't be too optimistic about what they launch though.

The views below are those expressed by myself and not Stellar Dawn Central.
