Involved with the ADRIFT community since August 2000, Ken Franklin has been an enthusiatic contributor, but a failed game author. In 2002 Campbell Wild asked him to become a moderator of the new version of the ADRIFT Forum, a role he has carried out since.
Originally had a website KF Adrift on the Web that included a great deal of ADRIFT content, though now it is a broader site of his interests. The ADRIFT content is now much reduced, and the more important information is on the InsideADRIFT site.

- Was a moderator for the ADRIFT Forums.
- Created Drift On, an ADRIFT-specific wiki, similar in style to the IFWiki. (Drift On was discontinued in September 2007. It was located at http://insideadrift.org.uk/mwiki/.)
- Organized many ADRIFT competitions, including:
- ADRIFT-O-Rama (Mystery; 2003; ADRIFT 4). One of the mini-golf holes is called "KF's Hole" which features chocolate wielding teddy bears running amuck.
