How did NightScrawlers come to be created?

Postby Crawler » Thu Oct 31, 2002 9:53 pm

One upon a time in a magical, far away land known as The Internet, a bunch of crazy little people got together in a place called WizardWorld.

It was not the WizardWorld that exists today, rather it was a nice place, full of insanity and life.

In this WizardWorld, in the X-Men section, there was an incredibly powerful underground force known as THE INFAMOUS NIGHTCRAWLER THREAD.

This single thread had more posts and more regular posters than most of the rest of the board...and more regular posters joined in every day.

Eventually, one of the posters, a relative newbie by the name of Knight_Crawler decided that Nightcrawler & his fans at the Nightcrawler Thread deserved their own board...and set out to create one.

After a long and arduous 2 hour search for a free board that would fit their needs, Knight_Crawler created THE NIGHTCRAWLER MONUMENT.

For nearly two years, the Nightcrawler fans posted at The Monument, and over time, some posters gave themselves new names (Knight_Crawler became UltimateCrawler) and new posters joined up. The Monument survived several scares in which it's host nearly shut down and a server change when the host was sold...but, in the end, the host became unreliable and The Monument was down for extended periods of time, so UltimateCrawler set out to create his own host...

UltimateCrawler became Crawler and he joined forces with a longtime, loyal Monument poster, Nocturne, who became Bamfette.

Crawler layed the groundwork, purchasing webspace and registering a new domain, NightScrawlers.com, and handed most of the reins over to Bamfette, who then set about doing most of the dirty work.

Then, yadda yadda yadda, you came here and read this. ;)

HAPPY SCRAWLING!

Yes, but we overcame Wizard World! We escaped to form a better place, a place where children can play and women can sing, where butterflies float on warm updrafts....

Ah, screw it. You get the idea. we got sick of WW and dumped 'em. ;)

Well, mostly we just needed more room for all of our ponderings and antics. :D

But we're lucky we left before WW died...otherwise we may have never regrouped.

But WAIT! There is more!

Nightscrawlers glorious and varied history doesn't end in 2003. It is now 2007 and we are still here.

Let's see now...

Shortly after the release of XMen United in November of 2003, new nightscrawler Zamweasel decided to make an elaborate and totally exact replica of Nightcrawler's costume from the movie. She came here because there were really great reference photos in the gallery. But who cares about her.

Flash forward to San Diego Comic Con 2004 and the historic meeting of Crawler, Bamfette, and the aforementioned random member. While the three breakfasted together each day before the convention opened due to the fact that they had to get there an hour and a half early to set up their exhibitor booths (Crawler and Bamfette - their own self published comic, Zamweasel working for Lucasfilm at the time) they laid the foundation for what would become the most powerful administrative force in Nightcrawler internet forum history. Or whatever. :rolleyes

After a most unfortunate accident a year later, that left the site offline for nearly two months, Nightscrawlers added a third administrator; thus creating "the Triumvirate". Zamweasel became "Saint Kurt", Crawler became "Crash Tofu" and all was good in the Nightscrawlers world. Until 3 weeks later when the server crashed so utterly that it chewed up its database and it looked like the forum was gone for good.

With the help of avenging XMB angel Karl and HoodedMan, plus a move to a new server the site lived and breathed again and was better than ever. Plus we had a new friend and Technical Administrator for the site, insuring we would only get better and better instead of slowly falling apart.

About a year and a half ago, Crash Tofu said "hey, let's have roll playing game on the site for a few weeks. We'll call it 'Nightscrawlearth'..." It's still here. :)

And, Saint Kurt finally had to admit that running the Triumvirate and going to vet school was too much. And so the "Sexumvirate" was created - three new Administrators who currently run the board absolutely: Paws and Nacht with the help, of course, of the tireless HoodedMan.

Plus we moved again. And got a better chat engine.

Nightscrawlers never stops growing.

:)

How long have I been coming here? It's definitely more than three weeks. I totally missed the server crash. 7-7

Awesome history, Saint Kurt. I am now more knowledgeable about Nightscrawler lore than I ever hoped to be.

Oy...Mabus rocks though. I talked to him a month or so ago!
"If you live your life to please everyone else, you will continue to feel frustrated and powerless. This is because what others want may not be good for you. You are not being mean when you say NO to unreasonable demands or when you express your ideas, feelings, and opinions, even if they differ from those of others.â€

I pity whoever takes it on themselves to write the social history (including the 'wars') of scrawlers. Now that'd be a lot of work :P

!!!!! Tell us.

(They are both previous admins, Feuerstein. Mabus set up the old chatroom [and CAM CHAT] and Bunny brought the site back from dozens of crashes and hacks. The site would have had the big crash much sooner without him.)

The kind that left the writer out of the wars as well.

Though I've met Mabus both online and in person his participation was dwindling when I signed on. "I thought he was cool" doesn't seem like much of a plot point though. And I never understood Bamfbunny well enough to write about him - either the good or bad. Since he was responsible for many very good things here and some not so good - why risk wrongly insulting him?

Why should I spread mis-information when I could keep to the subjects where I actually know what I'm talking about?

I also left out Dave Cockrum dying. That was important too, but it didn't exactly fit in with Crash's theme of where we were, when we were there, and how we came to be here. Etc.

So I told the parts I know and that fit.

I suppose the wars (and the periods of peace?) will have to be recounted by someone with more knowledge than I.

Good luck. It's a big job.

I don't think that has much to do with the sites history.

WTF, is the rp almost three years old?
