After the temporary outage of the New Babbage website a few weeks ago, I got to thinking about what might have been lost had the website had been compromised or suffered a catastrophic event, for whatever reason. After a bit of consideration, I thought that a location that archives and documents the past of New Babbage, seperate from the main New Babbage website, might be a good idea. As such, I’ve started a new endeavor, the New Babbage Register.
The purpose of the New Babbage Register will be to document and archive the past of the Independent State. This being said, I’d like to specifically state that it is not the intention to replace the New Babbage website, in any way, shape, or form. The main NB website is an interactive forum for news, stories, and other events regarding the current events of New Babbage (the proveribal “pulse” of the city). The Register will focus on the past, from the inception of the Independent City-State, through to the current era, tailing off at about the demise of the New Babbage Ning. A lot has happened in NB (RP and RL wise), and I’m hoping to consolidate the kaleidoscope of both into a somewhat visible prism. I realize there is a repository for existing New Babbage history (the New Babbage Department of Records and Archives), and I’m hoping the Register will be a useful supplement to the DRA.
Additionally, I’ve started a Flickr account to attempt to accumulate photographs from the old days of the City-State. If you happen to have a photo you wish added, please do follow to the NB Register’s Flickr account, located at: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1818746@N22/
