    I found the chatlog of the first time we seriously talked about the smogon site and were trying to come up with a name for it..

    [13:37:44] <chaos> so, are all of you going to help me? or some of you?
    [13:37:49] <chaos> what kind of a name should this have
    [13:38:00] <Vincent> I think it'd be easy to get ppl to contribute, chaos
    [13:38:07] <chaos> Probably
    [13:38:16] <Paperfairy> Pokemon Grand Central Station- For all your battling desires!
    [13:38:21] <Paperfairy> something conry
    [13:38:21] <chaos> We can advertise the site on NB, the nb forums ;), and BH
    [13:38:24] <chaos> so I think we could get people
    [13:38:25] <Paperfairy> yeah
    [13:38:25] <Vincent> yeah
    [13:38:27] <Paperfairy> totally
    [13:38:29] <goofball> lol forum
    [13:38:30] <chaos> all of the newbies on BH fucking ADORE me
    [13:38:32] <chaos> so if i told them to go somewhere
    [13:38:34] <Paperfairy> i know
    [13:38:34] <chaos> they would
    [13:38:34] <Vincent> haha
    [13:38:38] <Paperfairy> so true
    [13:38:42] <Vincent> you are pretty much their god
    [13:38:43] <Curby> lol
    [13:38:45] <Paperfairy> lol
    [13:39:10] <Vincent> not too sure one person alone can html everything tho
    [13:39:26] <chaos> I can give you guys FTP access
    [13:39:29] <Paperfairy> don't underesimate anyone
    [13:39:39] <Vincent> yeah
    [13:40:05] <chaos> so anyway, a name
    [13:40:10] <chaos> i'll set up FTP accounts today if you want
    [13:40:14] <Vincent> shoudnt be too hard to get something up quickly if ppl contribute
    [13:40:14] <chaos> I don't have much to do over christmas break
    [13:40:15] <Paperfairy> Pokemon Grand Central Station- For all your battling desires!
    [13:40:19] <Glalie> chaos sucks thats a good name

    Those were fun times when we were planning for this behemoth of a site. I remember #smogon started out when we were trying to evade Paperfairy

    I love how most of the end of the log is Paperfairy talking to himself because we all secretly moved to #smogon to avoid him.

    and when he finally left

    [17:51:12] <PF> well
    [17:51:13] <PF> i gtg
    [17:51:25] <PF> this isn't my comp and ppl are bugging me 2 get on
    [17:51:26] <PF> cya
    [17:51:29] <PF> bai
    [17:51:31] * PF has left #tafop
    [17:53:13] -> -@#tafop- yes lets
    [17:53:52] -chaos:@#tafop- that guy is pretty annoying :)
    [17:53:58] <Glalie> I agree
    [17:54:01] <chaos> ok
    [17:54:03] <chaos> everyone pack out
    [17:54:04] <chaos> :)
    [17:54:09] -> -@#tafop- I figured thats why you were noticing
    [17:54:13] <Glalie> we can't change tafop's name or anything
    [17:54:20] <chaos> so
    [17:54:21] <chaos> just go to the channel
    [17:57:55] -chaos:@#tafop- anyone in the smogon project plz go to #smogon ok we are avoidoing paperfairy ;-)


    he came back a couple of minutes later in a dead room

    [19:02:43] * PF has joined #tafop
    [19:02:48] <PF> back
    [19:03:09] <PF> what happened while I was gone?
    [19:04:10] <PF> it's like a ghost town
