HS: Forget the CEPO, the killer robots are what we need!

Darksun: You missed the bit where many people get annoyed and walk out of #Uplink.

The GIT was a major part too I spose. Also, don't forget the PCG demodisc that brought a sizeable amount of us here.

Well I don't like to brag, but what about my creation of the first ever full graphical replacement mod back in the dark (hee hee) ages of Modlink?

Adriac - of course.
Also the launch of modlink - I remember that....

I R 1337 - This might be of use to people like you - who aren't very active on the forums and miss lots of big<ish> events.

Obviously, we have to have the Nakatomi patch as a big one as well as the US release <groan...>

yeah, don't forget the lucky few ladies who had the nerves to join with the big boys in this all-male arena, especially Shadowraven. I remember seeing her name on the credits as the only female beta tester of Uplink, if my memory serves me right. ^_~

Don't forget to include something like Warborg Bumps is 10,000 post.

You could include the release dates of popular FanFiction

OK - currently on the list of things to include are:-

-Important veteran join dates
-Ultra annoying troll dates
-Forum attacks
-Mod, skin, etc.. releases
-IV releases
-IV events
-Community websites
-Noteable stuff in the forum - eg CEPO, Poptarts, GIT, etc
-Random community cool stuff - eg. comics
-Uplink Community ladies
-Noteable fights - eg PB, Section 51, etc..

Things I've missed so far?

I am going to need exact dates on these things, any help appreciated!
