History of SWR and its staff
The Rebellion Editor was created by Revolution, using many of the community and the works of another editor, SWRE. RebED was so good that many card sites started popping up. While it seemed like Revolution would not be around much, the community RebED fostered would bring SWR to life.|
The Star Wars Rebellion site (SWR) was started July 26, 1999 by Eville Jedi. It was a directory on StarWarsRebellion.com and linked to many other Rebellion sites with a list compiled by Evaders99. Soon, Zeblork (webmaster of the famous RCU) and Evaders99 were helping Eville run the site. Rebellion editing was happening.
By the end of 1999, we were doing well. Unfortunately major trouble with the server (mainly the old webmaster saying we were squatting on his webspace?) forced us to buy a new domain. Thanks EW and Skippy of the RebED Card Guild, we were on our way as SWRebellion.NET. This second version of SWR pioneered our site as we increased visitors and organization. With the help of Stratus, soon we had many hundreds of cards and some TCs on our site.
After the two years and declining interest, JediIgor took up the domain and got us SWRebellion.COM. The third version of SWR continued updates in technologies, with Stormfront helping us install phpNuke and php scripts to make the site even more interactive. The Cards database went up and the site was even more impressed. We increased visitors with banner exchanges and interest.
Although with several bugs to be worked out (one including an entire database lost.. which today still affects our statistics tracking), SWR became the only site to get everything you need. Now with both the SWRebellion.NET and SWRebellion.COM domains, you can access all your SWR needs from which ever you prefer. And of course, our forums are here for our registered users as well.
With active card makers on the decline, we seek to foster new editing in other areas. Ship model editing and texture editing are the new things we have to look forward to. This will allow us to truly create a Total Conversion of the game that we all like.
Update: In June 2005, we decided to move to our own dedicated server, operated and controlled by us. You will see even more support for various things including Star Wars mods (Warlords being the premier one).
We can no longer even track how popular this site is. Each month we get more and more visitors. With over 3000+ members, the SWR community continues to grow. I hope you've enjoyed reading and sticking around the community.
