The Secret History of CoS Forums.

In the beginning there was nothing.

Then came Harry Potter, and it was good. However the devoted were spread around the world with no way to connect. A small band of free thinkers found each other on the internet and began to think of a better way. This way was a forum, and in 2002 it was born. However this forum was not the forum you know today. It was different.

The forum was small at first, the designers unaware of what the future would hold. The small band of free-thinkers met in bliss, given a chance to explore their fervor they flourished and gathered more free-thinkers to the cause. However there was trouble brewing. A crisis lay on the horizon that would split the forum.

The players in the crisis were unimportant. What transpired left the free-thinkers confused. Their place of devotion was torn asunder, bogged down by the brutal tyranny of one man and his ever destructing ego. The strongest and bravest group of free-thinkers left the small forum and forged a new path.

Born from the fires of tyranny was the new forum. It is the forum that you have all come to love and enjoy, and for nearly six years CoS Forum has striven to remain true to the ideals that the free-thinkers came together for.

Lani has spoken. Go forth.

Of those who nursed the newborn forums out of the fire Steve and Valerie have left us. Forever I'm afraid. Morgoth and Ali are still with us.

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

WOW!

When the sixth star rises, will we be informed about it and will there be a party too, I wonder?

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

I do love to hear the stories of old forums and how they got started. It really makes you more comfortable with the place, and thus...

We prosper.

<3, Tigga.

Like the Three Magi, you will know. A new star will rise on the horizon - you'll know when if you can count up to 6.

Just like in my hero Arthur C. Clarke's classic story "The Star" - told from the point of view of a Jesuit astronomer - yes, awesome, ain't it? - it tells you exactly what was the star that went nova to show the Kings and the Shepherds the way to Bethlehem. Or, in this case, the way to the Deathly Hallows.

The party will be up to you and other potential attendees. Bring butterbeer and firewhiskey. Don't forget the milk and honey.

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

Will there even a sixth star, or will it be imaginary?

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

I've only been on here for about a month so I only know what's in the forums. So that was pretty cool to here. Thanks lanifiel(I can't believe I'm thanking a cat lover).
