Help Needed

Post by Steel on Mon Feb 13, 2012 5:31 am

For educational purposes, I am attempting to compile a brief history of what's been made for BLoSC. I know there are more forums, fan groups, and other such stuff made by fans over the years (even stuff that's no longer available) and I was hoping with your help that I'd be able to compile them all in a list to show our fandom's "passage in time", so to speak.

So far, I have these:

August 15, 2000 — The first fan fiction on FanFiction.net, Mock Speed, is published.
October 8, 2000 — The Yahoo! groups starcommandcentral and buzz_star_command are created. Presumably, around the same time, BuzzLightyearFanfic and buzzlightyearstarcommandrpg are also created. [inactive]
June ??, 2001 — The first fan site, Team Lightyear Archive, is created. [inactive]
June 23, 2002 — The first LiveJournal community, the_buzz, is created. [inactive]
April 11, 2003 — The Wikipedia article, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command article is first created.
July 3, 2003 — The first fan art on deviantART, Agent Z, is published.
November 27, 2003 — The first forum, Star Command Message Boards, is created. [inactive]
June 6, 2004 — The first fan club on deviantART, BLoSC Fans United, is created. [inactive]
January 10, 2006 — The first role-playing forum, Star Command RPGs, is created. [inactive]
November ??, 2006 — The first fan video on YouTube, Like Humans Do, is posted. [unavailable]
December 1, 2006 — The first character-specific forum, the XR Fan Club, is created. [inactive]
May 14, 2007 — The second character-specific forum, the NOS-4-A2 Boards, is created. [inactive]
April 23, 2008 — The Buzz Lightyear of Star Command article is first created on the FanHistory Wiki.
January 1, 2010 — The first character-specific deviantART group, Zurgtastic, is created.
February 2, 2010 — The forum Buzz Revolution is created. [inactive]
February 20, 2010 — The first general deviantART group, Star Command, is created.
March 22, 2010 — The LiveJournal community, blosc_redux, is created.
August 7, 2010 — The first wikia, BLoSCWiki, is created.
August 8, 2011 — The forum To Infinity and Fandom is created.
November 6, 2011 — The first tumblr account, Ask Team Lightyear, is created.

So, first of all, I know there are more ProBoards forums. I think there was a Buzz/Mira one, a Mira/XR one, and a Warp one? I'd like links to those and date creations, if you remember them at all. Next, I found a fanpop page, but I don't know when that was created. There is also the fanlisting whose date I also don't know.

Pretty much, I want to catalogue as much as I can, so I can determine how active our fanbase has really been throughout the years. I really, really hope you guys can help me out on this endeavour! <333

What about things like reviews for the episodes or look backs at the show?

Just checked and there's now a Buzz Lightyear of Story Command section in Archive of Our Own.
Title: Ninety-nine
Published: February 6, 2012
http://archiveofourown.org/works/333936

Then there's Radio Free, which I don't know how comfortable I feel mentioning (and I'm not sure if you even need that one), but I can't figure out when it was created. The oldest post I've found is circa November 2007.

And what about the TVTropes page? I'm not sure how you'd get the date that was created, though, but it's likely doable.

Oh, the TVTropes page can be added! I'll have to look into that to see when it was made... if I can. And Radio Free is special, it doesn't need to be mentioned. Razz

And maybe I wasn't clear, but I was mostly going for forums/fan communities/etc. Not fics, though that is interesting for I never knew there was a page like that. As for reviews or look-backs, unless they're consistent, they're not that... significant, date-wise? There're too many schedules out there with small summaries/reviews and none of them are actually official.

But I can totally mention them in a section I describe the three different fan generations, so go ahead and link me what you've got!

Buuuut, you two did give me an idea just now. I'm sure I can make separate pages that can detail good fanfics the fanbase has come up with or whatnot, but then again that would be really subjective... Hmm, food for thought!

Do any of you know some of the fanbase's history I can also include? Like, any significant events that happened, etc.? When did the series even rerun anyway...

Ah, now, see, you had the first BLoSC fanfiction on fanfiction.net as one of your fanbase milestones, so I alerted you to the first BLoSC fanfiction on Archive of Our Own, since that's what I'm calling a "New Wave" fanfiction collection. I didn't mean to point it out as a "good" fanfiction (I didn't read it), just as another milestone you could add.

Wikipedia has the reruns written as from 2006 to 2008. pixar.wikia.com says that it the reruns were until 2008, not giving a starting date.

Also, apparently at least one Buzz Lightyear of Star Command character (Booster) was in this official comic from Dec. 9th 2009: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=user_review&id=1643

I never read the comic, so I don't know the exact details of Booster's role in it, or if it's just a cameo.

I have the link to the Beer forum! Here it is: buzzmirabeer.proboards.com

You could probably find when it was created by looking at the date of the earliest post.
