The strongest and bravest group of free-thinkers left the small forum and forged a new path.

Born from the fires of tyranny was the new forum. It is the forum that you have all come to love and enjoy, and for nearly six years CoS Forum has striven to remain true to the ideals that the free-thinkers came together for.

Lani has spoken. Go forth.
I'm intrigued about the "crisis" and the "tyranny". What was the original forum and why did it split? Or am I being too nosy?

And is it me, or did that used to say "Go forth, lemmings"?

EDIT: W00t CoS!!!

The old forums split and two forums ran side by side for a while until Emerson & I got organized and sorted out a few problems that led to CoS becoming MuggleNet's official forums. That whole thing lasted about 2/3 months.

Ah, you master negotiator, you!

Great thread here. Though I never post, I keep an eye on it from time to time.

Six years. Wahey!

So was the original forums called CoS, or is that just the name of this half of the split? And btw, can I just say that your avatar is t-t-t-terrifying .

MuggleNet Forums was the original, more apt name. That died a death and instead of rebuilding the site, CoS was asked to replace it as MuggleNet's official forums.

Were there rules, when it was mad at first?

Was there an election for leader as we are having now for Minister?

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

Hello, all. Reading this thread brings back so many memories and depressingly reminds me of how much time has passed. I was a member at the original Mugglenet Forums many years ago when I was only 15. I am now 23.

As to the great big battle, during that time I lived up to my unique title: the poltergeist! I think I was on both sides of the great disagreement!

Morgoth, it has been awhile, but do you remember me? My username was Jason. It is insane how large this forum has grown, and how big Mugglenet is now. Congratulations on such great success! You and the other administrators earned it!

I have been coming to the forum for about 4 years. I didn't join until recently. I liked peeking in from time to time. so, this forum is about 8 years old now?

The date when a member's stars change is calculated from the join date per the member list. Morgoth's join date has been considered the official birthday of the forums.

I guess my question is: If his join date is February, shouldn't he have 8 stars instead of 7? Or are his stars calculated from July, when CoS went live?
