History of GSA

GSA has a truly long and varied history. We have now persisted for six years, and have had hundreds of people join our clan and leave. Over the years, dozens of those people influenced our history and shaped us into the clan that we are today. We might look back and laugh at certain melodramatic moments, but we cannot deny that those occurred, and we must document them in one permanent location for future members of GSA to see. In order to do this, I have decided to create a comprehensive record of GSA’s history, whose process will be divided into three steps:

Step One: Gathering the History

This is to be done with the help of our current membership and also past membership. No one person, however long they have been in the clan, can possibly remember all of the things that have occurred in it, so this is necessarily a group effort. If you have any good facts that may be obscure, please post them in the comments below.

Sadly, many of our old websites have been lost to time, but I managed to save a few and compile them into what I call the “GSA Archive”. I will look through this archive and use it for this compilation.

Step Two: Writing the History

While the facts alone are interesting, to an outside observer they are confusing. A lot of explanatory writing will have to be done in order  for the work to be coherent to members with no knowledge of our history.

Step Three: Publishing the History

The history will be split up into seven eras (subject to change) based on the evidence I currently have. Each era will be split up into separate entries and will be published both on the main page and on its own History page. You are welcome to criticize them as they are published and amendments will be made accordingly.

To conclude,

GSA deserves a record of its history not just for its future members, but also for its past members who spent so much time trying to improve their clan. It would be a tragedy if all of their efforts went unrecognized and forgotten. I hope that this will suffice.

  1. I visited this site out of curiosity and found this post. Honestly, I think this is a great idea that will hopefully recognize many of the members who led GSA when PB2 was huge back then. I’m an inactive old member of GSA, from about 4 years ago, and I was hooked into this clan and the game. This was way back from when people like Jeepdino were leading the clan. Hope to see the history post soon! -Lt. Awesomemad
