A totally unabriged, unbiased almanac of HC
*Thread under construction*
Volume One boring
Volume Two also boring
Volume Three also boring
Volume Four - The Volcanic Wastelands
Appendix I History
In the begging there was a collection of spam scattered across the Fora, with no organization to it. Our Lord, Valeriy knew that spam must have order, so he opened a wastelands - Forum Number 9 - for it. It was there that the spam was sent, and there that it thrived.

And then the DragonSlayer called the three headed monster a "tosser" for tossing out spam, and soon enough "tosser" was the description people used for jesting spammers.
a huge gap of pages are missing, including the legace of TheUltimateMale, the majority of the Tosser Era, something about placentas, and other important events, right up to, ironically, where Miru joined
The age of tossers had ended, and only mention of this past was left. Soon enough Valeriy added extra poll options, increasing the number from 2 to 10. Mvassilev, a young and eager spammer of the time started his visions. In his polls he included redundant options with only the word "Namus". Soon enough word got around that he was to be the god of spam. His word, along with his prophet, and his ham sandwiches soon spread.

At the end of the 05 some HyDrA brought the first signs of the reckoning: word of an contest to create a town. Soon enough this "International Create a Town Contest" was spreading. Everyone had an idea for a new faction. Ideas clogged the Altar, then the only H5 forum. Kookastar, possessed by the demon ICTC was the first three pages of "Todays Posts". Valeriy caged the monster in the Colosseum, but the darker lord ICTC remains active to this day, heralded by the FriendOfGunnar who sold his soul to him.

And while TnTina searched for the worlds sexiest woman, many new people were learning to be mature. Suddenly Pandora decided to leave us for an inferior pass time - doggsleddering. Suddenly the VW was unmoderated for days at a time
Appendix II Games
Throughout the ages the VW has been host to many game threads. Here is an absolutely complete list of every game ever hosted:
Dumb Question Dumb Answer. People take turns answering the previous hen asking a new dumb question.
TPAM. Insult or comment on The Person Above Me
Word Transformation. Take the word from the previous post and add, subtract, or change one letter to make a new one.
One Word At A Time Story. Participants add to a story adding one word at a time.
What Are You Listening To Now? A very hard game where you must say what you are listening to now, oddly enough.
I'm Leaving / I'm Back. Post a thread, leave for two days, and decide to come back.
Quote Pyramids. Quite the person before you until the quotes stack into a pyramid.
Blank Post. Post a really long blank post. (I was the first to discover the posting character limit.)
Song Remix. rewrite the lyrics to a song so it features HC. Started my "I'm too sexy for HC" by Val.

Volumes 5 + also also boring
Feel free to add. I'm filling in more as people comment, I remember, and I have time. Only VW stuff for now, and when that's done, we can do the boring stuff. This is going to take a while, so if it sucks now, well to bad. I, like, commas,.
Hath not the potter power over
the clay, of the same lump to
make one vessel unto honor,
and another unto dishonor?
