If you're an old HoW member who knows some HoW history prior to 2003, especially on the early days, let us know!
Myself, I'm pretty good on HoW history as of 2003. And some information on the few years before that can be pieced together as well. But piecing together is not the same as knowing. People's memories are failing, so it's time we write down as much as we can. We would like to know more about the early days of the HoW.
If you know anything about the years BEFORE 2000, then that's even more valuable to us, because even Syrion's knowledge extends no further than 1999/2000.
From an old, archived post by Shifty, I've been able to set the year of establishment one year back from 1998 to 1997. Seeing as this was the year his own little site joined the Hall. However there's a good chance that the HoW existed even before that, say 1996. Unfortunately, there's too little evidence to be sure of this. Any proof/information in regards to this would be welcome as well.
So once more, if you know about the Hall of Worlds pre-2003, especially on how things were organized, what kind of affiliates there were, who were on the Staff, etc. etc. Even if it's on old logo's, old forum software and what not else: Please tell us. Before it's too late.
