SMBChronology

Post by Oldrac the Chitinous »

Prior to the SMBCyclopedia, no single authoritative history of the Forum has been written. It is our hope that this opus will correct this shortfall, but as it stands now, even the experts in one part of the field are often woefully uninformed about other areas. The lay public, meanwhile, know next to nothing about the subject. So, both to assist researchers working on the encyclopedia and to provide a point of entry for the uninitiated, I have extracted the salient dates from the articles written thus far. I will continue to ammend this list as additional information is added, and I encourage all of my collaborators to point out any dates that I may have overlooked.

Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

I have placed this section alongside the introduction and rules, since it is not quite an article, per se. Thank you for your contribution, Sir Oldrac.

Congratulations on your promotion amongst the Symposium, Mage. I must have missed the announcement, for there is no other applicable reason for you to gain the same editing rights as I on this project.

I have to concede, Moderator, that you are just plain better at making readable, informative timelines than I am.
I thank you for your assistance.

No thanks necessary. After all, you were the one with the brilliant idea to create the timeline in the first place.
mountainmage wrote:If I overstepped my bounds, I apologize.
No, I must apologise to you for being curt. My only excuse is a massive hangover*, and even then I could easily have avoided that with slightly more willpower. Your decision to make this timeline more prominent was correct, and it was a migraine-fueled desire to retain power that caused my rudeness. The Crustyans are throwing a cocktail party later, would you be so kind as to attend? I understand that their Founder held one of your ancestors in high regard, and your appearance will almost certainly secure more funding for the Symposium.

From being drunk with POWER!

It is true that my ancestor was a great lover of cop movies. I will definitely attend.

The App of Wonders made its appearance in the history of the Forums shortly after the Mar 2012 Forum Restart - no month was gathered amongst my research, hence Martholomew's return & the appearance of the App of Wonders is to be listed as either March or April 2012 for the sake of posterity.

I am quite content with your phrasing of the events of 2020. An outstanding agglomeration of verbiage.
