2000 the new millennium, this is the year where
part of the community started to crumble.
With the Ap-zone gone and the click cafe started to have
problems things did not look good for community sites. It was not all bad
because on the upside of things the official clickteam site finally started
to get bigger and better.
The Return Of The Community Sites - TFGF/Klikkety Klik
Let me introduce Andi Smith, a great guy with a pasion for click, programming and having fun. Back in 2000/2001 he introduced TFGF, a brand new community site that was updated with news from around the community. Andi himself will tell how it all started: In November 2000 I met Ranmaguy who told me that, together with Nobuyuki, they were starting up 83rd Stasis - a games company to rival the almighty Virtually Real. The company actually only ever released 1 game and was nothing more than a glorified blog. But I owe Ranmaguy everything as he taught me ASP. Myself and Chris Davis (TK) were given the opportunity to have our sites hosted on the 83rdStasis server. Of which we jumped at the opportunity and in December, both sites were moved to the 83rd Stasis server. The TFGF/TK battle continued and kept the community constantly updated as myself and Chris raced each other for every snippet of news. Also you can click on the picture for a bigger view.
Clickteam & Vitalize
* In the same year Clubsoft also released a vitalized based website called Club's Cade. The site was a rival to V-Cade, the site also did really well for a while there. You can click on the picture for a bigger view of the site.
* 2000 also saw Jeff taking a stronger role in Clickteam, when he was asked to become their official web master. Jeff has implemented many improvements to the 'Clickteam experience'.
The Fall of The click Cafe
At the end of 2000 the server that was hosting the click cafe was suddenly gone. The People where stunned. Sean said they they should have a new server up in no time but to this day the click cafe is still gone......
The Click Convention
Back at the clickteam forum people started to talk about how it would be great to meet eachother and talk about clickteam's new project called: Jamagic. The very first Click Convention was held in Kings Langley (London UK) in 2000 (Saturday 16th September). Though it was a UK based convention, we had users from different countries turning up, people came from France, Holland and Argentina, the rest were obviously from the UK.
