Volume XVII - June, 2008
Hello, CUSWFN/XVII/News, and, once more, the CUSWFN is here to greet you right at your doorstep, for June, 2008!
So, we’re now Wikia’s oldest newsletter, a testimony both to this newsletter and to CUSWFN itself, in my opinion! We’ve seen in previous editions, Edition X, the changes in the skin to CUSWFN, but now let’s look ath the inspiration behind CUSWFN, and the users who have been behind us since the beginning. Tader’s inspiration was, after being a contributor to Halopedia, and seeing the Oracle Newsletter, Tader decided that Star Wars Fanon could do with one. After speaking to Squishy Vic over the IRC, Vic approved the idea, and CUSWFN was born.
Some early supporters of CUSWFN were NKSCF, a User who pledged to help the newsletter and signed up to receive it, and C3PO the Dragon Slayer, who offered to support it. I understand that C3PO and Tader knew each other quite well, both discussing game maker, Tader for Mandalorians: Path to Glory (now deleted) and 3PO for Avian Hunt. C3PO and Tader agreed that CUSWFN wouldn’t become official, so that each decision wouldn’t have to be approved by the public (even now, we’re only semi official), and this continued. Although not many users received the first edition, users like Gyasz Kudeb soon signed up to receive it, and more soon followed.
After Tader left early on, the newsletter collapsed, until he returned and published another two editions, when he left for the final time and, despite CUSWFN being handed over to Xepeyon and Shadowphobia it collapsed, and lay dormant since 2007, until I came and restarted it in 2008, some time around 2 or 3 months ago. I’ve enjoyed my time working here, and I wish Brandon and Vic all the best; I’m sure they’ll do great.
Beneath here, I’ve published a list of all the Meet a Users, in the correct order, since my takeover.
