Yeah. The end of the H?/Dlords/Ni vs. White/Black/MK war could be a bit flushed out. Nok-- if you need more info feel free to reach out to me. Basically, MK joined White and Black against H? and Dlords and Ni joined H?...

Damn it, I knew I'd forgotten something. Thanks for the criticisms all, this is just the 2010 section but it's really useful to know your opinions.

It would be nice to see all this historical data compiled onto the wiki so it can be expanded with what everyone remembers and maintained.  (Elgea:History should be the starting point.)  It would be especially awesome to have all the major events compiled into a timeline, and once started, future expansion would be more detailed due to better turnaround time from event to recording of event.
Cheers HM- this is probably the most useful comment, plus it has one of the longest brackets I've ever seen ;-). I'll try to ensure I put all the info in that you've provided, and I'llprobably contact either you, Kumo or maybe KP in the future.

Good read.
Vet's should be encouraged to post (here or wherever) their own "stories" as HM suggested. Many newbs (myself :) are interested in these and other stories, histories, time lines etc. This sort of thing gives Illy a depth beyond what comes out of a box when we buy a new game. Joining a community like this and having access to the history (only 2 years, but what a history) strengthens the connection one feels as time goes on. I came to play, but after a few weeks I began to realize there is so much more to Illy than "play." It's this rich history that draws me in, making me want to connect in a way that is new to my experiences with "gaming."
IMHO :D

Just FYI re the first paragraphs. Several players of H? are also Eve Online players (myself for one).

I believe the position you stated for Harmless' victory obelisk is correct, but it's worth noting that it can no longer be seen there.
