The E Club’s 6th Anniversary

Six years ago, I created The E Club to share the best Mario, Star Trek, and science information. Now, having entered more fields like social networking and online arcade gaming while still staying true to its original purpose, I couldn’t be more proud of where The E Club has come.

But it doesn’t stop here. This year is Mario’s 30th anniversary, and next year is Star Trek’s 50th, so great new stuff is on the way!

The E Club’s 5th Anniversary

Today’s the day! The E Club is now half a decade old. Though the original site is long gone, its mission lives on through the fourteen websites now known as The E Club Family: to provide great information about Mario, Star Trek, and science. The E Club Family has also disrupted many other areas as well, such as social networking and sharing, online gaming and shopping, video sharing, various technologies, and so much more.

The E Club Family has come so far in the last five years, and I’m proud to say this will always continue on. Even as it expands into even more new areas, The E Club Family will forever be a great resource for Mario, Star Trek, and science.

The E Club (.info)’s Second Anniversary

I am very happy to say that The E Club’s domain name, theeclub.info, is celebrating its second anniversary. The E Club’s domain name led to and is still leading to many years of The E Club prosperity. This prosperity includes, obviously, the registration of the domain name, making it The E Club’s, and, thanks to the domain’s records (such as A and CNAME), all except two of The E Club Family Websites are now subdomains of The E Club. Plus, The E Club even got our own URL shortener, s.theeclub.info.

When theeclub.info was established with WebStarts, The E Club was in a crisis. Moogo, The E Club’s original host, was going to shut The E Club down along with all of its other Free websites (for no explained reason) in about a month. (Moogo is also going to close down all of its paid websites at the end of September 2012.) The E Club had tons of content, so all of it had to be transferred in a small amount of time. This also applied to The E Club Lite and Wii Like Games (a video game review site I created with member J) since they were going to be shut down as well.

After the transfer of content (I moved The E Club’s content here, The E Club Lite’s to Weebly, and Wii Like Games to Blogger), I saw the enormous potential of WebStarts’ powerful drag-and-drop editor. I improved all three new sites, focusing a lot on The E Club, whose domain had been recently registered.

Between then and now, many new CSS styles were implemented into the sites. When the three sites were in a good-enough condition, I started to create more websites, and that established The E Club Family. Many of them later became subdomains of The E Club, and some branched out to more areas than just content, such as revolutionary social networking (The E Club Social and The E Club+), arcade gaming (The E Club Arcade), and much more. Taking advantage of The E Club Family’s unity, I began redesigning them, using advanced HTML and CSS. Now, The E Club Family is doing better than ever, thanks to theeclub.info.

I hope to oversee many more prosperous years of The E Club Family, and as the old saying goes, “Go on today!”
