The Early Era
The site was created in 1995 but the oldest stories (through older stories by year) can be traced back to 2001. One of the early pubbers was called Astri and wrote Angie At The Concert. If you joined by this time, (2001-2009) you are literally a kidpub veteran.
The Growth Era
This is when the stories began getting more lengthy and developed. The site also started to get more popular and old kidpubbers either quit or grew up writing stories. If you joined by this time, (2010-2013) you are also...kinda a veteran.
The Advancing Era
This is when KidPub was basically at its peak. How? Stories were constantlly made, KidMud was used, venting became commonplace, the site became VERY welcoming, there wasn't a care in the world and this is where the more memorable authors begin rearing their amazing stories. If you joined by this time, (2014-2019) you are an oldie, not yet a veteran tho.
The Dark Era
This era started when Covid did. (screw covid.) Memorable users began leaving, posts nosedived, KidMud became forgotten, and overall things got...worse? In a way? I joined during this era, only to find I had joined too late. (2020-some parts of 2022)
The Slow Rebirth Era
The new KidPubbers are bringing KidPub back to grace (thankfully) and more guests are showing up. Wayy more guests, and old users are coming back. The future looks brighter for KidPub. (Mid 2022-present)
