Well, where do I start. Firstly, if it wasn't for Thomas
Hassen's Transformation Story Archive Mailing List, I
would never have got to idea to create a interactive, IRC channel
where people from that list could come and talk to other people who
liked transformations and such stories. I first started the idea by
bouncing it off a few friends on another IRC channel I was on
at the time, and then on the 12th December 1996 I posted a email to
the TSA-Talk Mailing List to
inform everyone that the channel was open. At first, there was a
little apprehension for the channel, and the channel took a little
while to build up. However, after a while a small group of people (Wildstar,
DanielSan, Zuul, EskimoJoe, Kpack, and
me) were on the channel nearly everyday and every hour. Finally I got
a little bored and from that boredom came the Transformation wish
Bot, Genie (my first ever Bot creation).
The channel continued like this for about three to four months, then
Fornit came on and the list seemed to grow from there. A few more
advertisements for the channel hit the TSA-TALK
Mailing List and the population of the channel increased. I
had to leave for university then, and that meant I couldn't continue
to control and keep Genie on the channel. It was on that day, Genie_Bot
was handed to Zuul and Zuul was made co-owner of
the channel (which was one of my best choices in my life - I might add).
While I was away (probably about a month) the channel
continued to grow and prosper. When I finally got back on line, the
number of users had grown from about ten/fifteen to be closer to twenty/twenty-five.
The channel had a following, and they were people who enjoyed
chatting, transformations, and just good fun. Zuul had been
working with Genie heaps, and the very basic IRC Bot I
had created became a very interactive and wonderful transformation
Bot which was way past anything I could have done.
Since then, a list of backers grew and the channel finally got enough
support and activity to become a registered channel of Undernet.
All the rest if present history, the channel has become very busy,
and some things have had to be added, changed, and removed totally.
That is what this homepage is, a addition to the still growing impact
and fun of the channel. I hope you can become a part of the channel
future, because it is only going to grow bigger as we keep going.
