Well all i know is that tron started out as mostly a game with only a server, you and bots w/ no rubber or anyother game style. A few players joined together to make SP x3r and a few others then oblivion made a arma div. and that was the best clan ever.... It had all the best players. then people quit. -- IZZIMAHIZZI

What is this? Did you even try? Start here: http://armagetron.sourceforge.net/old/news.html Then here: http://www.armagetronad.net/about.php If you want a player-centric history of Arma, then you need to go through the wiki and the forum page by page, making clear notes on dates (it is history you know). --sinewav

Well, i am going through the forum and wiki...i have read most of the posts i care about on the forum...and will gladly research and document history a little at a time! we should research the oldest clans that really kicked up 6 years ago..like MBC for example... I will start a topic when I interview someone and can contribute something kewl. --Compguygene

it seems a wiki would be a good place to start collecting, so we can add and edit eachothers work. --Concord

Would anyone be interested in developing a wiki, if i install MediWiki, the same wiki software that the armagetron Wiki uses? I can install the software, but need someone else to to help set it up and make it look good. I would be willing to share the root pw for the server in question. The server in question is NOT used to host armagetron servers. I am only using it to host low traffic websites at this time (none currently, but developing a few). If you are interested in helping to develop such a Wiki, just post here or pm me! --Compguygene

couldn't we just use the arma wiki? --Concord
