In Topic: When is the Next Armageddon? A Friend from Singapore wants to know.

Sorry for the late reply – Armageddon isn't happening this year (or at least not at the usual time in June) due to Covid-19.

In Topic: Old Nerflister handed bag of nerf guns from parent's house, nostal

I sent them a link to the History of Nerf Modding discord, where we have access to some backups of old nerf lists, but they are not publicly released yet. Didn't want to "advertise" in public. They have joined and we have been going through modern nerf with them and getting him up to speed. In turn, we have gotten some nice pictures of period correct mods and some pictures and info on original Stefans. 


The whole issue is that using a place like Discord (privately owned servers, closed off from public archive and search) will fundamentally run into the same issue that services like Facebook Groups, Ning (completely dead and with it a decade-plus of SoCal Nerf photos/history/archival stuff), and other walled-off ecosystems is that it fails the point of archiving anything. Keeping information out in public where it can be accessed and stored (e.g. by Internet Archive) makes it way less likely that you run into the issue that you are currently trying to fix, that is, that a bunch of the early parts of the history of this hobby got lost due to profit-searching machinations of private companies.

Welcome back to the fold. The horizons closed in and the monopolies and siloization of technologies and networks and that means you're looking at us on a dead expanse, hollowed shells of information and people that used to exist but no longer. If you're looking for Spoon, he's mostly reachable by way of the other old hands on Facebook. Last time I saw him was at, like, Armageddon 2018? 2019?


And, yeah, the "stefan" stuff being the common nomenclature for any stock dart is psycho wild. Language transfer across national borders and international waters.


PM'd you some pertinent info.


Why would you send it in a direct message instead of posting it in public.

Use a screw standoff spacer and embed it in epoxy putty or something. Or, failing the standoff, use a piece of wood or plastic and drill/tap it for the screw.
