A portal to other existences
Weird-Reality began as Strange Reality on a bulletin board system (BBS) back in the 1980s. Originally catering to students and some researchers, Strange Reality had some 400 users. With time, Strange Reality evolved and grew until about 1995, using internet relay chat (IRC), a chat room was created under the name #Strange_Reality, along side another chat room, #PsYcHo_WaRD. Both chat rooms were located on the now defunct Microsoft Network IRC.
When MSN closed down their IRC network in 2000, Strange Reality became the name, you are now used to, Weird Reality on MSN Groups in December 2000. For the following 8 years, Weird Reality became one of the premier groups on MSN, reaching a membership of about 3000 with roughly 600 active members. At the same time, we'd opened another community group called, Weird Space. It too, enjoyed a huge predominance in its category.
When MSN closed down its community groups network, we worked to save as much of the groups' posts, as possible, by porting the two groups, Weird Reality and Weird Space to Yuku communities. The two groups have been archived on Yuku ever since, and are still accessible to this day.
Since 2008 Weird Reality has operated as a website, independent of any other community service. However, in 2012, due to some issues with upgrading the phpBB forum software, the content of the forum was lost. The database was saved, meaning that the posts are still retrievable, but are not integratable with the current forum.
Weird Reality, in its various forms, has been around for over 30 years. And, we plan to be around for another 30 years.
