||About Mega Man Legends Station
Back in early 2003, typing "Mega Man Legends" in any search engine would return nothing but old reviews from video gaming sites, and a number of general Mega Man sites that had little to no information about the Legends series. The web needed better, and though not the craziest or most knowledgable Legends fan out there I, fAB, took it upon myself to remedy the situation by creating Mega Man Legends Station, a site devoted solely to everything Mega Man Legends. Through countless hours and far more hard work than I ever imagined, MMLS eventually grew to become the place I envisioned and more, where fans of the series can find info, media, and be a part of a strong MML community.
The long, arduous unfolding of Legends Station's history can be found in our archives
, dating back to pre-launch.
Although envisioned, designed, created, and maintained almost entirely by the webmaster, Mega Man Legends Station wouldn't be what it is without some very appreciated bits of help from others.
Buzzsaw the Righteous
He deserves to be first. The motivation I needed to get going on MMLS was found when visiting Buzzsaw's site, Mega Man Paradise. Reading through his extensive Legends character bios was awesome on such a Legends-deprived web. Buzzsaw was also one of my first online friends, gave loads of encouragement, and was first to link to MMLS.
SuperDanny and the MLU Gang
Being a member of the MegaMan Legends Universe message boards was lots of fun and helped keep me motivated through MMLS's early slump periods. Thanks to all the great members who made the place what it was back in its golden era--Dia Aren Marie, Teisel, Tronrox, Servbot4677, to name a few--and of course SuperDanny for making the place and being such an all-around great friend!
I owe much thanks personally to Dashe of the Legends Station Forums for taking over and keeping the place in shape when I found myself no longer able to keep up with it. The community owes her much thanks for being a driving force behind so much of what goes on there. She's also helped out with some of the site's content for Mega Man Legends 3.
Wanting something visual to spice up the Guides section of each game, I envisioned humorous images that I felt would be perfectly suited to MLT's art style. He agreed to take on the task and did a marvelous job, plus allowed me to use his Juno of the Lamp piece to represent the Fan section. He's also been a major player on the forums, and is all around one of the coolest dudes I've had the pleasure of knowing on the web.
The MMLS Forum Members
My gratitude to all the many wonderful people at our own forums, past and present, who have given of themselves and turned their personalities into a part of the atmosphere of our fantastic little community. The growth of the forums as an integral part of Legends Station is thanks to all of you.
Mega Man Home Page
Second site to link to MMLS, bringing in our first real wave of regular visitors.
Planet Mega Man
Once the ultimate Mega Man site in nearly every aspect. Aiming to be good enough to affiliate with them was wonderful motivation as a webmaster.
Mega Man Network
Another first class Mega Man site back in the day, and fortunately still around! Mega Man Network was kind enough to request affiliation with us, and brought loads of visitors to the site.
All Other Sites
Thanks to Ciel Network and all our other affiliates past and present, and every other site that ever linked to MMLS and helped spread the word about us!
Estil of TMMN
He allowed MMLS to use his walkthroughs and transcripts for all three Legends games. These are amazing resources to say the least.
Before MMLS there was DASH! Sadly I came around too late to get to know the site before it disappeared, but its creater provided MMLS with some valuable resources, as well as the knowledge that there were memories of a great Legends site for MMLS to live up to.
Thanks to everyone who has ever contributed their work to the Fan Sections. Without all of you, that area of the site would not be the full, rich collection of Legends fandom that it is!
Thanks to EVERYONE who ever visited and continues to visit Legends Station. No matter how great a site is, it's nothing if no one visits and enjoys it.
