== A History of Ayashii World ==
: Ayashii World@Programmer started by Mr Zurubon (ずるぼん). Later well-known script called Zurubon UpLoader, or Apuroda (ずるぼんアプロダ) which is based on the Yui chat version was released on 2000.01.18.
: Ayashii World@Anime (@アニメ) started by Mr Seiichi (せぃぃち). Most of topics users discussed on the BBS was similar to Ayashii World II, so that the II administrator, Mr AGStar, found faults with @Anime, then they reconciled frequently.
: Note: There is no way to distinguish "い" and "ぃ" in English. Japanese keyboard input method can distinguish by "i" and "xi" or "li". So actually I should write his name as Sexixichi, but I just left it because it looks very odd.
: Ayashii World, or so called Mujirushi (無印) or Inujiniayashii (犬死あやしい), started by Mr Great Inujini (グレート犬死). Because of a lot of advertisements, A lot of Shiba fundamentalists gathered to the BBS. However, it was difficult to handle running the BBS script on a free server due to increase its user population. Moreover, most of people were from Honten stream, so that REBIRTH stream users ignored the BBS, then soon after the starting the BBS stalled and decrease in population rapidly. Later the BBS had faded out.
: Ayashii World II deleted the account due to break the term of an agreement by the Arena server administrator Mr Yamashita. Then @Netprp (@ねっとぷろ) changed the name as II unofficial shelter purpose (II退避用非公認), and accommodated II refugees, and other shelters started also. Finally the II refugees moved to II@Maripe! (II@まりぺ!) run by Mr Maripe Moe (まりぺ萌え).
: Ayashii World@Hongkong (@香港) started, and next day also @unix started. the Administrator Mr (´ー｀)wara ((´ー｀)ﾜﾗ) was suspected that he was Mr Machi no Yousei (町の妖精), but nobody knows the truth.
: Ayashii World@Mirai (@みらい) started by Mr Machi no Yousei ( '-')ﾉ (町の妖精( '-')ﾉ ). The name of BBS was @Zantei (@暫定) from the beginning, but the name had been decided on the next day 02.23 as @Mirai. It was very comfortable location because of the Arena server, and most of users were otaku people, so that there was no otaku discrimination on the server; therefore, a lot of users moved from II@Maripe!. Soon after Mr AGStar had a sense of impending crisis and opened the BBS, IIε , again. Right after the opening of the BBS, @Mirai had been attacked by huge trolling for some days.
:: Note: mirai means future.
: Mr committee of measurimg penis (チンポ測定委員会), a historical charisma character, appeared on @the Christmas Island.
:: Note: What he did was to ask people to measure their penises both a normal size and an erection size. Still we can access to his website: [http://timupo.tripod.com/iinkai/tinsoku.html チン測]. Interestingly some actually measured their sizes.
: A pardon from Mr Yamashita, an administrator of Arena server, Ayashii World II revived and run the BBS again. Then it had started a fierce battle of getting main BBS among Ayashii World BBS on the Arena servers.
: The Playstation.com customers' list leak incident occurred at @Mirai. The incident reported on some mass medias, so that users thought it would be an advantage to get the title of main because of been highlighted by the medias, but @Mirai got huge trolling from next day. After that frequently @Mirai had got trolled when the BBS was animated as if alienating users.
: Ayashii World II got a domain name, strangeworld.org. II regained its power instead of Mirai which had got paralyzed by trolling.
: Finally Ayashii World II became de fact standard main, and @Mirai had been lost its population. Meanwhile, trolling had stopped suddenly although the BBS had been attacked everyday. At the time, getting IP Address especially among underground cultures were taboo, so that Mirai could not prevent the trolling and that was the reason why Mirai could not get the title of Main. It was notable fact that Ayashii World users especially Mirai users reached at a consensus after the incident that it was unavoidable to get IP Address and restrict/ban from the server. On 2000.08.05 Mirai run a system to prevent trolling called TPO.
:: Note: TPO, Time Place Occasion, was to check and restrict some words when a user posts in order to prevent both trolling and fruitless conversation. It is mainly 2ch words and about who troll this, or something like that. At the time some users hatred 2ch words and overreacted keenly the words itself.
: Mr Pororo closed Honten. The next day, he started a BBS, Jakobini (ジャコビニ), which was not related to Ayashii or Hoten.
: Mr Mana started shelter Hoten (退避本店). That was peculiar because the founder of REBIERTH stream run a Hoten shelter.
: Ayashii stream@IRC (あやしい系@IRC) renamed as !strange@IRC started by Mr ORJP.
: The Soudan-kun (相談君) incident occurred. Soudan-kun made a call to Mr AGStar about asking a policy that Mr AGStar forcibly sent users to a browser clash page who AGStar does not like. Then Mr AGStar reluctantly put an apology on public announce page, but soon after he retracted it. After the incident, Mr AGStar stiffened his attitude and became the absolute tyrant who nobody could touch.
: Mr Mana closed shelter Honten. The Users did "the last supper".
:: Note: I don't know what the meaning, but presumably tons of chatting.
: Mr Masami Eiri (英利政美) a.k.a. god (神様, kamisama) started Ayashii World@Hoten. Honten stream put the title Ayashii World, so that Honten became one of Ayashii World group again.
:: Note: Because, one hand, Mr Shiba actually said not to use the title Ayashii World, so Hoten stream users had faithfully kept his words. On the other hand, REBIRTH stream hold the title of Ayashii World to show Mr Shiba respect. The way keeping his words was different, but what they wanted to do was same thing.
: @looser (@ルーザー), a pinnacle bizarre serial novel, started On Remix.
: @Artistω (@絵描きω) started by Mr Ecoko (えここ). The script was novelty hybrid style that mixing both BBS and uploarder.
:: Note: the name Ecoko is probably derived from a character, Ice-chan. Somehow the character had been so popular among the internet users especially underground users and got nickname, Ecoko: [http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%A2%E3%82%A4%E3%82%B9%E3%81%A1%E3%82%83%E3%82%93 アイスちゃん].
: Ayashii World@Fashion (@ふぁっしょん) on hypermart deleted and moved to Virtualavenue which was free account as shelter purpose, then moved to vis, pay account, in order to run in earnest. The background color changed to #303c6d as Honten color. Also PO Box called DJ Warez (now United BBS) started. In 2000.11. The BBS was reported on a magazine and became popular, so that being NOT underground, and blamed its commercialism due to force banner-clicking. Therefore, the BBS stopped to use the title of Ayashii World, and went a way individually. On 2001.02.07 the BBS moved to Arena server, on 2001.02.16 the BBS got original domain name as at-fashion.com, and changed the color #004040. Later the administrator changed from Mr Kumozaru (くもざる) to Mr Natsuiro (なついろ).
: Ayashii Wrold@Extra (@エクストラ) closed. Then Ayashii World@Itan (異端), actual successor, started by Mr Nyun Kozou (にゅん小僧). The administrator Mr Swatty appointed @Extra shelter purpose by Mr Machi no yousei as an official successor, but users did not followed his announcement because of avoiding a power struggle among Ayashii World main BBS.
: The first experience of Ayashii World@Famille (はじめてのあやしいわーるど@ふぁみーる) and @O-Sa-Mu- changed☆ (おーさーむー～改め☆) moved to so-called Kurumi server.
At http://strange.kurumi.ne.jp/bbs.cgi, it started to get env as a countermeasure for 2ch users.
:: Note: If a user comes from 2ch by judging referrer environment of browser, then something happen to his computer, mostly redirecting other pages, or browser-crush pages. Ayashii World users hatred 2ch users at the time, so nobody criticized it. Even some 2ch users tricked and mocked other users to send the page. Actually some 2ch novice thought a URL of II was simply a browser-clash page.
: Mr Bou J (某J) 's BBS started in Salon web, run by Bou S(某S) a.k.a. Mr Utada Raper (宇多田レイパー).
: Ayashii World@Puchiko (@ぷちこ) started under the Christmas Island. Would it be a strategic move for Marimite? The BBS got a cute anime picture design on the whole page, and users who have an allergy for Anime topic as if anti-anime fundamentalists got panicked. Even though they have got panicked, it was used for the role of "call" because the script had indication of participants.
:: Note: the main BBS of the Christmas island did not show a number of people were reloading in 5 minutes, whereas Puchiko did. Therefore, often the Christmas users just reload Puchiko BBS by the "call" in order to count how many users were online.
: Anger among Ayashii World users toward 2ch users vaguely smoldered, then it revealed anti-2ch emotion had come to the surface abruptly after started a topic, 2ch wipe out (2ch 抹殺), on Remix: 2ch users used Ayashii World uploaders without any permissions; made threads about trolling Ayashii World, even The first experience of Ayashii World which is inviolable sanctuary among Ayashii users; copied Ayashii World memes and even declared its original was from 2ch. So that Ayashii users were opposed to some ignorant 2ch users who even had selfish attitude. Then Ayashii users used a Phaser script, a server trolling software based on Perlduke script, and finally the trolling made the 2ch servers stopped. Mr Hiroyuki realized how bad the situation was and later apologized at the topic on Remix, then the trolling gradually settled down. After the incident, there was/is a taboo to talk about 2ch among Ayashii users, and even still most of users have anti-2ch allergy. It exists that the worst users who agitate antagonism between Ayashii and 2ch, who also check both sides.
:: Note: Recently most of Ayashii World users do not care so much about 2ch, even the users talk about 2ch summary website too. But still when users talk about 2ch, then users notice and declare others that "if you don't like 2ch, just ignore it". It's been 12 years since then, but still users actually have to take care of it. Now you can imagine how anti-2ch allergy was so huge.
: Mr Hiroyuki, The 2ch administrator, appeared on Ayashii World II. Betraying most of Ayashii World users' expectation, Mr AGStar kindly welcomed Mr Hiroyuki and even told him how to restrict IP Access; and even emphasized that I, AGStar, had not been related to the incident at all. he was just a coward at the time unlike later he has kept saying anti-2ch discriminational statements frequently.
: Ayashii World@A committee of measurimg penis ((‘‘)ノチンポ測定委員会) became an independent website from Remix.
: Matel's Honten digest (メーテルの本店 Digest), A Kamisama-Honten log reading portal, started Mr Maetel (メーテル).
: Kamisama-Hoten lost its confidence from Honten users because of leaking logs with IP Address for a week.
: Ayashii World@Hoten a.k.a. Momo Hoten (もも本店) started by Mr Momo (もも).
: Popular contents Iria-san started on Ayashii World II. It seems that around this time was in the heyday of Ayashii World II. Amount of logs each day were around 3M Bytes.
: Eroge Sommelier (エロゲソムリエ) started at Remix by Mr Φ. Later he moved to virtualavenue his foothold, then moved and became a part of @Fashion (@ふぁっしょん), and in 2002 it disappeared silently.
: Ayashii World@Hoten a.k.a. ds-Honten started by Mr daylight stars. After the log leaking incident at Kamisama-Hoten, there were 3 "Honten" BBS and got messed. Handle Name users who hang out mainly @Daytime part moved to Momo-Hoten, Handle Name users who hang out mainly @Nighttime part, and most of anonymous users moved to ds-Hoten. Moreover, when Mr ds was appointed a BBS, Shiten@Shelter purpose unofficial Gorilla-man (支店@退避用非公認 ゴリラーマン) anonymously on 2000.04.12, he used a Handle Name, QOO, which had got the name from Honten users.
: Huge access restriction started on Ayashii World II, so that a lot of users could not join the BBS and became refugees. IIω refugee camp started by Mr ω, and it took responsibilities for II refugees.
: The refugee camp developed independently, and changed its name Ayashii World NG. The administrator was Mr Namuru (なむる). Unlike other independent BBS from II, the BBS declared pro of AGStar. Population was not so many, but users had talent for creativity. Therefore, the BBS created an original culture and had a significance of existence. The BBS was not a part of main BBS, but it showed one of ideal position for small BBS.
: Ayashii World@Hoten so-called Kamisama-Honten finally closed. A tradition that 2 parts of BBS of Honten; Daytime part and Nighttime part from Mr Denki Maker had been finished.
:: Note: Which means other 2, Momo-Honten and ds-Honten haven't had 2 parts BBS system.
: Mr Ichiro Kawakami, the first administrator of Der Angriff, retired. His successor Mr infohands succeeded Der Angriff BBS, but right after succeeding he closed 2 BBS: Ayashii World (Manji) attack so-called Curry BBS (あやしいわーるど(卍)攻撃 カレー板) and @Battle Watcher %Solomon (@バトルウォッチャー%ソロモン). Later other BBS closed quietly. Currently the BBS has changed the name as Der Amegriff by Mr Shotamoe (ショタ萌え), and some former Amezou users gathered on the BBS.
:: Note: the name Shotamoe (ショタ萌え) comes from Shota and Moe: [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shotacon ショタ].
: Mr Honokama closed @Yunasoft, which had run on the original domain name finally. He said he quit Ayashii World and moved to 2ch as his playground?
: @Mirai's server moved from jo.st22.arena.ne.jp to jo.st45.arena.ne.jp.
: An administrator Mr Onputan, who runs Ayashii World@Onputan, got criticized in earnest. Mr Onputan claimed to unify both Ayashii and 2ch actively, so that a lot of Ayashii World users repelled his argument due to anti-2ch allergy. Mr Onputan got expelled from Ayashii World, and he mentioned a maxim when he left, "What I want to do is not collusion, but fight.".
: WEIRD, a prototype of Ayashii World@WA! (@わ!) which is a Mirai stream blog and a link portal, started by Mr Lain Iwakura (岩倉玲音). His blog has gained fame because of his Shota-con theme.
: Ayashii World@Diablo a.k.a. AyaFuro (a.k.a. ぁゃ風呂) started. The BBS pioneered of the Internet games specific BBS.
:: Note: Although some topics exist about the Internet games on Remix, like @CS squad (@CS班) and so on.
: Nazo Remix started by Mr Wonder Gyahahaha. Another report said the administrator was different person.
: Ayashii World@Hongkong closed. @unix moved to a shelter purpose and then moved into under the Christmas Island on 2001.05.01. Chief a.k.a. Hoeko (酋長 a.k.a. ほえこ), The administrator of the Christmas Island, had highly motivated around this time?
: Moyashii Explorer (もゃιぃ Explorer), Momo-Honten log reading website, started.
: Ayashii World@Morning Musume (あやしいわーるど@モーニング娘。) started by Mr Nacchi Moe (なっち萌え)?
: At Mirai, there was a huge sensation of posts about "I am sorry, Mom" (ごめんねお母さん) among Mirai users, which was written by Mr Seishi a.k.a. Mr Lubu.
:: Note: The text is about how harsh to his mother, and a lot of replies were sympathy for his mother. Even before he had posted a lot of his school traumatic memories how he was bullied and got sympathy to him.
: Mirai users released More FTPd, a FTP software for free.
: Remix which has run by Mr Mana handed over to the Christmas Island, then the name changed to Remix@the Christmas Island. Mr Mana's thought that making new community for not only Ayashii World users had carried on to Rhizome, a new script, later. (Although it is difficult to say that it succeeded.) On 2003.01.06, Quietly Remix@Network (ひっそりりみくす@ねっとわーく) started for the Christmas Island users.
: Ayashii World@Peke (@ぺけ) started by Mr Nitta (新田). the BBS had never been posted entire a year, and the administrator joked about it on @Meiso, then consequently it made a small fad about Mr Nitta, hahaha. On 2004.04.19, He split up about stock market into a new BBS, Ayashii World@Babylon (@バビロン).
: Mr AGstar start a new BBS, @Poo (@うんこ, Unko), in order to quarantine some users who Mr AGStar did not like. Unlike Mr AGStar's first thought, Poo grew livelier than II, then he closed Poo because perhaps he felt crisis of II. Poo users made shelter purpose BBS independently, AGStar opposed to them and enforce discipline. It might be a clue of declining the power of II?
: The thing that Remix moved to the Christmas Island made II stream users difficult to post freely at Remix under the Christmas Island; because II users can not go other Ayashii World BBS, so that Mr Log Merchant founded Renaissance, a new Remix like BBS for II users.
:: Note: There was no rules to go to other BBS among Hoten stream and REBIRTH stream users, so that some users freely posted among 2 streams BBS or even other underground BBS except 2ch. Unlike these 2 streams, II users have to be loyal to Mr AGStar and must not post to the other BBS.
: Ayashii World@Makkochou (@抹香町) started by Mr Oguri (小栗).
: Ayashii World@news, politics, and economics specified BBS stopped. The administrator was Mr Seto.
: Mr Musashi Araki (荒木武蔵) got a domain name, strangeworld.jp. After that he published subdomain name of it for users: [http://strangeworld.jp/ strangeworld.jp]
: Mirai Remix started on Remix what log reading of Ayashii World @Mirai.
: Ayashii World@SyotaMoe (ショタ萌え) started (now the name is @Yuichiro Tajima (@田島悠一郎)) by Mr ShotaMoe. Later the administrator took a domain name, www.strange-x.com. The users are Amezou stream.
: @Wageo (@わげお), proclaim itself Main BBS, started by Mr Ashokan.
: Mr Log Merchant actually stopped Ayashii World old logs@a Geocities Branch. Therefore, volunteers in each BBS correct and release its logs.
: Ayashii World@Self Torture (@自虐, Jigyaku) started by Rubbish administrator (屑管理人, Kuzu Kanrinin). The BBS has been hacked by Honten users, and got a nasty trick what releasing logs with IP address, but patiently the administrator got a domain name, www.jigyaku.com on 2003.04.07. Both of this and @Rabbish Man(@屑人間, Kuzu Ningen) started on 2003.01.01., two became oasis for a lot of Ayashii World rubbish users who post muttering to himself. On 2004.02.18, @Unemployed (@無職), reproduction of it, started. Ms. Kinren (金蓮) a.k.a. Ms. Nagoyan (なごやん)'s personal board was belonging to Musyoku.com, but later jigyaku.com disappeared in 2004.10. and her personal BBS moved to www.fujiyuu.com: [http://www.fujiyuu.com/ www.fujiyuu.com]
:: Note: Probably the domain name, jigyaku.com, has been taken by others, and shown an advertisement of a movie/DVD. Also, musyoku.com has been take by others too. fujiyuu.com still exists.
: @Mojie (@文字絵) started by Mr Maetel.
: The September 11 attack in the US. Hijacked airplane clashed as Suicide attack to WTC.
: Ayashii World@Reproduction deleted, and frequently Reproduction had deleted and moved to another website. In the end Reproduction shelter purpose (@転載退避) also deleted, then Tsuuka kun (通過君) withdrew from running Reproduction.
:Around this time, amounts of logs of ds-Honten had been bigger than II, which means the biggest amount among Ayashii World. The average of logs in each day was over 4MB.
: Mr Shiba started his own mailing list, called @ML. Mr Shiba has come back into Ayashii World. In Ayashii World II its declarations of administration policy said "The BBS defend to the death until Mr Shiba come back". however, users would get banned from the BBS if the users talk about @ML, and even Mr AGStar got panicked and changed the declarations.
: Ayashii World @Itan closed after some shelter purpose BBS had started; it run by an administrator Mr Log Merchant.
: @Ura Mirai (裏みらい), shelter purpose for Mirai, started by a same person as Ayashii World heritage.
: In order to avoid criticism that Reproduction had been occupied by Honten users, @Hoten Repuroduction started.
: From around the new year, Ayashii World II started strengthened access restriction. Nazo BBS@Kushi-Benkei (なぞ掲示板@串弁慶) run by Mr Wonder Gyahahaha a.k.a. Mr Log Merchant had taken responsibilities for II refugees, so that the server of Kushi-Benkei got overloaded by increasing population and showed errors frequently. On 2002.01.12 Mr Wonder Gyahahaha disappeared and closed the BBS. It would be a reason why he has been missing was that he would quietly protest against being a betrayer and a wire-puller of antagonists of Mr AGSter, even though Mr AGStar sent refugees to Kushi-Benkei himself selfishly.
: Ayashii World@Zantei (@暫定) started. This was the first time that 3 people cooperated to administrate on the ARENA server; all of them have strong characters, Mr Gikoneko, Mr Gesu Nuts, and Mr Utada Raper. II refugees who have a complaint inwardly about repeated unreasonable access restrictions by Mr AGStar moved to Zanten smoothly from the beginning, but soon after Zantei got troubled with trolling using 2ch Ascii Art and so on. The purpose of this BBS was to take responsibilities for refugees, so that it had not taken any action for access restriction, then a lot of violent problem children from all over the Ayashii World gathered to it, and got ridiculed like a disuse garbage correction disposal site of Ayashii World. Later Mr Utada Raper had been in isolation because he claimed railroading into the way of coping the trolling, and got lost his interest to run the BBS, then he disappeared after the last post around middle of June. Then, other 2 of administrators had been also missing, and the BBS got numbed though it has been working.
: Renaissance by Mr Wonder Gyahahaha moved, and later in 2003.10 changed name as Dai-Etsuraku-gou (大悦楽号).
: @Fashion's right of administration moved from Mr Kumozaru to Mr Natsuiro (なついろ), then Mr Kumozaru became a kind of the guardianship and started a new website Yoroin (養老院) using vis account. Mr Kumozaru still remained his power and reigned as a shadow fixer, but after in 2003.08 he suddenly canceled the ARENA server and closed the BBS. After in 2003.09 he has not touched any contact with Fashion, which means Mr Natsuiro run the BBS alone. On 2002.02.20, experience, PO Box, started by Zenkaku kun (全角君).
: Ayashii World @Reproduction Shelter (@転載退避) started on so-called Kurumi server.
: Mirai Library (みらいライブラリ), a website about to write "happening now" on Mirai, started.
: Renpou (連邦), A blog site by Mr Yoshino who became famous by his former news portal site Ura-News (裏ニュース), introduced Ayashii World II recklessly. As expected Mr AGStar sent users from Renpou by judging referrer from it to a browser-clash page, then of course Mr Yoshino got a lot of complaints.
:: Note: Ura-News mainly posted underground news, like software update information. Although there were several same news portals on the Internet at the time, somehow the website became so famous.
: Ayashii World NG closed. (The declaration in front of the page said the BBS will be closed when an amount of log scores under 100kb per day.)
: Ayashii World II have declined its amount of logs around this time (the average of logs have declined 1/3 from the heyday.)
: Nazo @Hiroshima Tarou (なぞ@広島太郎) started. This would be a kind of an ultimate hybrid progression model which overturned a concept of Nazo.
:: Note: The BBS provided several pictures and could post the pictures WITH TEXT ON IT (though Mac users could not see exactly because of stupid Mac browsers). It is a sort of an automated futaba like BBS. Users do not need to upload images with text by themselves each time, so that everybody could post easily and fast enough. The BBS also allowed some tags by users, so that pictures or characters could move in a browser freely and really fast by mainly IE on Windows at the time. I have still never seen so funny BBS like it since then although it was really chaotic and posted a lot of meaningless shits. This is not exactly like Hiroshima Tarou but its successor Hiroshima Jirou's log is available, so that you could guess what it used to be: [http://jirou.s58.xrea.com/cgi-bin/bbsinfo.html @広島次郎 howto], [http://jirou.s58.xrea.com/cgi-bin/bbs.cgi?m=g&e=200701.dat @広島次郎 Log].
: Ayashii World @Kowloon (あやしいわーるど@九龍) started as a content inside Kowloon Cyberbrain cities - Zero Shiki - (九龍電脳都市 -零式-).
: It revealed that Takara co., ltd registered Gikoneko or Giko-cat as a trademark to the Japan Patent Office, but next day Takara withdrew the registration. Then, Mr Hiroyuki appeared on @ML, and he knew the origin of Gikoneko or Giko cat was not 2ch.
:: Note: Takara originally registered on 2002.03.12, and then 2ch users knew around this date. Even Mr Hiroyuki sent a questionnaire to Takara, and then suddenly Takara withdrew. Some 2ch users claimed Gikoneko should belong to 2ch, so that it made Ayashii World users mad again.
: StrangeWorldBugBrowser, A log summarizing portal of Ayashii World @Mirai, started.
: Smithsonian Museum (すみそにん博物館) was deleted due to post flood of Honten stream fixed handle name users' personal information. The administrator even got tired of run the BBS, and he declared "never comeback". The script has been released openly.
: Mirai antenna, keep watching update information of @Mirai Street in real time, started.
: Logs with IP Address leaked at Ayashii World@Zantei, and Mr Gesu Nuts acknowledged his fault and apologized.
: Mr Mana ambitiously opened Rhizome, making new community for not only Ayashii World users.
: Ayashii World @Nozomi (@のぞみ) started by Mr Amarikawa Sanpei (あまり皮三平). Originally the server was a home radio server. This was actually successor of NG, and NG users moved to it.
:: Notes: The name Amarikawa means "leftover skin", implying foreskin of penis. Most of the logs are available: [http://dl.dropbox.com/u/77619158/index.html A small place for piling BBS logs of The Strange World at Nozomi].
: Ayashii World@Lubu fell suddenly. As a shelter purpose, it moved under @Mirai and changed the name as @Lubu Jingzhou (@呂布荊州). Others also moved and were working.
: Getyou Log (ゲッチュlog), a place for piling logs at Zantei, started. it was an automatic logging system by scripts.
: Apuroda@yasashikushite.ne.jp, uploader for Zantei stream, started. STRANGE UPLOADER Script, an uploader script with drawing function, was highly regarded by not only inside Ayashii World, but outside too. The administrator was Mr Chinen a.k.a. Urabe (ちねん a.k.a. うらべ), who was also the developer of @Joshiana script.
: A shelter purpose of Itan had not worked so well, so that Ayashii World@Itan started by Mr DokuDenpaYagi (毒電波山羊).
:: Note: The name of Administrator is literally translated Poison Rediowave Goat, but the term Dokudenpa turns as crazy or psycho.
: Ayashii World @Lubu Sili (@呂府 司隷) started on netfirms. There is no clue of administrators.
