ScoreBoard: A HistoryScoreBoard was founded in the summer of 2004. Its original intentions are now vague, and...quite frankly unimportant. What IS important is that ScoreBoard was made. The way it worked was that people would sign up with JUST a name (how's that for trust?) and submit entries describing cool things they had done. Then, after sitting around for a while in a database, the entry would be 'graded' by either the creators (Nick Beier and Eric Wustrow) or Lexa. The entries would be assigned an arbitrary point value, supposedly reflecting how cool the entry was. A large ScoreBoard of users resided on the main page, ranked by total points. Clicking on a user's name allowed people to see all the entries submitted by that person, the points they recieved, and leave a comment.
Basically, it was the coolest thing ever. But like all coolest things ever (and there are many), it had its flaws. One of the biggest was that it was graded by a small group of people, with very narrow minds - rich white folk. It was soon realized that ScoreBoard was totalitarian, and people lost interest due to the lack of tea parties. But like most govermental issues, nothing was done for a number of years (2). Until finally something was...
ScoreBoard became the first website - nay, THING - in all history, EVER, to fall victim to a participant-less revolution.
Not a single person participated in the revolution's war, in which nobody was killed, injured or even remotely affected. Nobody murdered the ScoreBoard leaders, and no power changed hands. It was the most boring revolution of all time. However, out of all the non-chaos came the birth of ScoreBoard: Revolution.
