X-VILLE RIDES AGAIN [Oct. 10th, 2008|02:40 pm]
alt.tv.x-files, the old generation

Dudes, perhaps you've heard? As part of the Organization for Transformative Works, there's a new fan-run wiki called Fanlore and I've taken it upon myself to cobble together an entry for X-Ville. As that was a very long time ago and I am now very old, I can barely remember it and for some reason Google has made it impossible to read newsgroup posts in a useful and coherent order. NEVER MIND.

It is now up to YOU, YOU THE VIEWERS, to bring X-Ville back to its former glory by installing it firmly behind glass where all can gawk and wonder at its awkward hideousness!

That is to say: If you were a member of X-Ville or even just a fan, please visit the wiki and add some info in. We need more X-Ville facts, landmarks, members, and community groups and events! Tell us your X-Ville yarns! Tell your friends!

You have to sign up with Fanlore in order to edit the wiki, but that's quick and easy. You know what's also quick and easy? Learning to edit the wiki and promptly losing nine minutes nine hours of your life. I kid. That didn't happen to me or anyone I know. *cough*

But, seriously, stop by Fanlore and add your lore in. Up until last week I hadn't done anything but fix egregious spelling and punctuation errors on Wikipedia, and now I'm creating my very own brand new pages! It's addictive, but 100% organic, I swear.

ETA: ALSO, the entry for alt.tv.x-files is really naked. Think of the children!

I was a member of X-ville, but it's been so long, I don't remember anything! :-(

I barely remembered it myself, but looking through the crappy archives at Google Groups brought a few things back: http://groups.google.com/group/alt.tv.x-files/topics

I'm just glad everyone put their X-Ville jobs in their sigs! Without that, it would have made the character list impossible.

Man, I wish I could remember. I lurked in atx absolutely constantly from the middle of season 1 to some time in season 3, I think, but I never really knew anything about X-Ville.
