History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:09:42


For the past few weeks, I've been finally documenting the history of the Flash Portal. It turned out to be quite an undertaking! I don't by any means consider this finished, but it lays down a solid foundation:

The History of the Flash Portal

I still plan to put together collections for things like Tricky, F-Day and Wade Day, as well as annual group events and the long awaited Star Syndicate collection.

There's history I still need to dig up, such as the first Lock Legion submission. It looks like the first Glock Group submission isn't even on the site anymore. I might not add 2006 until the year is over, but there's a chance I'll make it sooner.

This is your chance to make suggestions! Point out what major events I missed and which talented artists I've overlooked. There are some things in there that probably don't belong... I am trying to point out the starting points of major series and well known artists, as well as submissions that launched trends and fads. Some highlighted submissions are a lot more noteworthy than others, so I might even want to prune the list to make the history more concise.

On an unrelated note, Avi from Worth1000 has launched a new site and could use some hype to get it going. Check out Plime.com!

Hm, did you write about Star Syndicate day? It was the first time when Portal was really filled .

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:14:19


That's really cool.

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:14:24


You need to put synj vs horrid 2. Looking through it i'd say 2004 was the best year.

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:17:04


Thats awesome. Glad you finished. I saw your original post on that and thought it was pretty interesting.

Yeah, I noticed the History of the flash portal when Arfenhouse teh movie 1 was put on there.

You should also make note of famous spammer clubs that annoyed us in the portal. But then again, it might be better if we try to forget about them.

Nice.

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:18:05


Awesome stuff. So far the History looks great, but I don't remember things that far back. I was too on and off back then to follow things properly. Great work though.

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:18:41


How about the B&W Drama Theater swries (even though some of them might be in tee collection already).

And 'The New Guy'...?

Yup the Star Syndicate is truly great. I'm so glad that we're getting our own page.

Awesome! It's been a while (I think).

People like piconjo and Livecorpse should get a shout.

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:24:12


You should update the 2006 page monthly, instead of at the end of the year IMO.
Really really nice collections and comments Tom.

Keep up the good work.

What about the Tomorrow's Nobodies series? I don't think I saw them in there. Or kitten cannon.

Yeah, but I wanted to flesh it out some more before announcing it to more people. :)

How long did this take you?

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:28:51


Heh, I'm not sure about the LL's first submission, but you should make sure to document 'N' as the historic 100,000th submission, as well as the subsequent 100k milestones grabbed by the LL.
Kinda sad I haven't done anything history worthy yet. :(

Response to History of the Flash Portal 2006-09-28 15:29:05


Awesome, I'll have to find some time to read through that.

Cool, i'll try and think of some more submissions.

You could incorporate it into the history section. So that when you read somthing you have put in the lit section, if you mention a month, or year, you could link to the appropriate portal history page, its an idea :D.

WHERE ARE THE SCREEENSAVERS? Sorry, i've been waiting about 6 months now :(.
