Rare Witch Project Forums
From RWP Wiki
There have been many periods ("eras") in the forums' history that have used many different forum softwares. Because of this, each "era" is determined by the forum software used along with the years of operation.
So far, the latest (and longest-lasting) era is The VBulletin Era, having lasted over five years.
- The Snitz Era: 2000-2001. The earliest remembered era by most members (though maybe not the first ever), many important members joined during this time.
- The UBB Era: 2001-2002. A clean slate for the RWPF. The switch was made in late 2001, and members were told they would have to register again. A few important members from the Snitz returned, and more new members joined, also. Closed around mid-2002 along with the main site.
- The VBulletin Era: 2003-Present. As mentioned above, not only is this the latest incarnation, but it is also the longest lasting. Originally formed by the RWP staff around May 2003, and opened to the public in June or July. Shortly after, the main site re-opened, also. A few important members have also joined us in this era, and some long-goners have returned. It is likely to remain the vBulletin era for a long time (if not until the RWP closes).
