Here is the preview. Note its a preview, and only the intro so far. Its going to take a lot of time on my part with this project. But Im doing it for all of you guys. I feel it is needed greatly.
The Following is a preview of the intro from the OWF history, note it is not the full version, or final, merely the introduction.
The Oddworld Forums History
Written By: Al the Vykker
Credit given to the members and staff/ former members and staff of OWF.
Please take notice that this is a preview:
As most things end most have a beginning that not always is known, by everyone. Thus begins speculation, myths, and different thoughts on what is right and what is wrong. For this is the reason a record must be kept. This is a way to reflect and look back upon what has happened, and to remember, and never forget all that has transpired and come before. This is equally important to look at what can be further improved, and what should never have to take place again. Thus begins the history of Oddworld Forums a place that has changed so much within almost two years of its creation. In which many peoples interested in Oddworld, and those who were not, gathered in one large Community, and later became separated, within the community, and eventually split into two separate Forums.
Documented will be links to various threads created that backup certain statements. This will be interactive. What I mean by this is I want to know certain things that may need clarification, and or things I may have forgotten to add. This is not an overnight project for me, it’s going to take a bit of time and I will update as often as I can, and rewritten if needed. But I want everyone to be able to see how much this place has changed, and what lead to certain events. Within the history will be shown many peoples’ points of view besides my own, which I will take time to gather from others if needed. Also documented will be peoples’ stories that may have been misinterpreted, or never been heard. As stated it may need changing at times, or updates. I want people to be able to understand certain things that now are in place on the forums, and what lead to them. I want people to never forget the history here, and also learn from it. I’m not trying to be melodramatic, or even obsessed, or weird as people may later believe from this. Its something I feel is needed for the people of. And will be added to when important things may happen again. I hope you agree on this, that the facts needed to be sorted from what is not true, and if not respect my opinion at least of doing this for everyone on both OWF and those who have parted from us. Be looking soon again for updates, and revisions.
