One upon a time in a magical, far away land known as The Internet, a bunch of crazy little people got together in a place called WizardWorld.
It was not the WizardWorld that exists today, rather it was a nice place, full of insanity and life.
In this WizardWorld, in the X-Men section, there was an incredibly powerful underground force known as THE INFAMOUS NIGHTCRAWLER THREAD.
This single thread had more posts and more regular posters than most of the rest of the board...and more regular posters joined in every day.
Eventually, one of the posters, a relative newbie by the name of Knight_Crawler decided that Nightcrawler & his fans at the Nightcrawler Thread deserved their own board...and set out to create one.
After a long and arduous 2 hour search for a free board that would fit their needs, Knight_Crawler created THE NIGHTCRAWLER MONUMENT.
For nearly two years, the Nightcrawler fans posted at The Monument, and over time, some posters gave themselves new names (Knight_Crawler became UltimateCrawler) and new posters joined up. The Monument survived several scares in which it's host nearly shut down and a server change when the host was sold...but, in the end, the host became unreliable and The Monument was down for extended periods of time, so UltimateCrawler set out to create his own host...
UltimateCrawler became Crawler and he joined forces with a longtime, loyal Monument poster, Nocturne, who became Bamfette.
Crawler layed the groundwork, purchasing webspace and registering a new domain, NightScrawlers.com, and handed most of the reins over to Bamfette, who then set about doing most of the dirty work.
Then, yadda yadda yadda, you came here and read this.
