Default VR Timeline Project

Hey guys, so I know I just made my return to VR and everything, but I mentioned making a timeline a couple days ago in VRIM and I think it sounds like a great idea. So, to make that timeline, I'm gonna need some major help in remembering the big events in VR's history.

Feel free to spit out ideas at me, I'm gonna need them all. Posting the date you joined would be great as well since I'd rather not go find out when everyone joined.

December 6, 2006 - Floatzel.net is created
December 27, 2009 - VR switches to vBulletin
November 27~29, 2009 - First tournament
November 28th, 2009 - Site name was changed to Victory Road
January 2, 2010 - First (Super Smash Bros.) Brawl tournament

July 4th, 2010 - The first version of Victory Battles is released

I haven't been keeping track of major events. April 14, 2010: I get the still standing high scores on Space Invaders in the Arcade (I want to see some competition in this game!). I joined on March 15, 2009. You can always look at a member's profile for their join date should they not post it here.

Good suggestions guys, I'll compile a list this weekend and see if I can hunt down some dates.

November 28th, 2009 - Site name was changed to Victory Road

Annoyingly, a lot of the things that I saw on the Floatzel.net homepage before I joined (well before I joined actually; late 2009/early 2010) seem to be gone from June 2010's database crash.

The day the site switched to vBulletin - December 27, 2009
The day VRIM came out - December 29, 2010
The day we had our first tournament - November 27~29, 2009
The day we had the first Brawl tourney - January 2, 2010

I can get VRC dates, arcade launch dates, post milestones, PokéZam merger, and more when I have more time to look around.

I think some of the server moves would be quite important dates to include.

Thanks Cat, I figured you'd know the important ones. The server moves are definitely important enough.

I'll do some more of the member list when I ditch my laziness.

Seeing as Aura hasn't seen this (from what I can gather), his join date is this:
November 27th, 2009.
It's the same as mine, if you can believe that.

I think for now it may be best not to worry too much about specific member join dates until most of the major events are covered. It may even be best not to include any member join dates in the "main" list at all, as I'm sure everyone and their alt wants in on that for some reason or another.

Related, maybe we could add a list of when various mods were promoted/demoted? It'd be hard to get dates before July 2009, and it may be hard to get demotions before December 2009. There is a list in the vBulletin admin panel of exact dates of changing when users were added/removed to usergroups. The one from the old phpBB3 forum is no longer available. (Well, I have the database, but it'd take a little bit of work to thumb through that.)

Okay, I think we'll just compile a lost of members, then rather than putting all of their join dates. Just a list for now.

The moderator list would be a great idea if you can get that information. ^_^

Maybe you can add the April Fools day jokes? I only know of one but the others were said to be good.

I barely remember anything about the '09 and '10 ones. There's nothing on the Announcements board.
'11 was making everyone an admin and a fake closure notice.
'12 was making all the staff My Little Pony: FIM characters and a little bit of fake info on VGV.

The yearbooks and Victory News archives may be useful resources for this project, as they both to varying degrees describe the events notable to the forum itself (Shadow's part of VNews would be what you'd be mainly interested in).

I believe either the '09 or '10 one was the announcement of Ruby/Sapphire remakes. Amazingly, I remember that from browsing Floatzel.net when I was 10 years old.

Oops, yeah. Probably because that list is only for forum moderators.
