ORIGINALLY POSTED IN THE KALEIDOSCOPE EP THREAD AT THE END OF PAGE 22 AND MOVED TO THIS THREAD: Hey guys, I've got something to ask. I've been an avid Coldplayer for over 2 years now and I've been on Coldplaying for a few months. Much like the actual band's history, I think this website has such a special history and, like so many things related to the band, has a history that accurately represents the culture, trends, music and just the overall vibes of the past 2 decades (almost). I have fair knowledge of what's happened over the years with this website and community, things like how VLVODAAHF - MX was much busier compared to now, how the owners have changed (all I know is that the main guy's name was Ian basically), how the actual site itself has changed considerably and continually over the years. It's really special because it's followed the band's history after all this time, and I love it. But, like so many of you I'm sure, it's just a rough outline. So... could someone, or anyone really who wants to chip in, give a fairly in depth outline of the grand history of this spectacular website and community? It doesn't have to be too long, and you can all give your own different points of view and perspectives. Include as much as you know! Big things like how and when it started out, who started it, big moments in it and the band's history, how the site has won awards, how it's changed so much over the years and what it's been like during each era (or at least the ones that the site was active during). Anything you want. Anyone here who has been here a really long time? I know that @Christa42 has been here for around 10 years (damn!), anyone else who's still active now, any non-staff members? Anyone really? We could even put the history into the "About" section of the site (btw @Stephen, there's a lot of dead links down the bottom of the page like the different navigation sections and social medias and stuff, is that part of the current fixing up of the site? - I know you've got a lot on your plate, though - but the community can help create the content and stuff!) I'd just really love to discover the insight into this magnificent site's history and the evolution of it and the CP community over the years. I, like so many of you, wish that I could've been here, and also a Coldplayer, during earlier times (dat ETIAW thread tho ). But if we do so many more things here now and utilise this great community, then we'll be able to look back on these times in a few years like we currently do with the previous eras, and we'll realise that these times, right now, were some of the best and most special times of this site's history and community, too. This anticipation for and leadup to the Kaleidoscope EP (are we shortening it to KEP, is that how we're doing it? lol) can be like the leadup to PM or MX. But overall, I think we should all remember when we talk about the difference in activity on this site that the band is certainly not finished yet and there's still so much of the band's history to experience together. The CP community has so much more to go! Oh and btw, if anyone here is interested, the subreddit is another fantastic place and community for the band. Personally I much prefer the user interface of Reddit to these forum-type websites, but both are great. Anyone here is who is already on the sub?
