I think Keine has the best hat. It's still darn silly though.

Thanks to Keine Kamishirasawa the Internet Archive, we are granted the access to an almost complete history log of our site. I thought of sharing this for the ones who are relatively new here, like me. Let's start, shall we?
Notice: all the backups before the address change have the page code not saved properly, aka with no formatting and css. Don't know why.

- Apparently, before being a Touhou only CYOA/discussion site, touhouproject.com was a place for sharing all kinds of doujin/anime material through torrent, with a Touhou section: http://web.archive.org/web/20070502184709/http://www.touhouproject.com/
- That went on until june of 2007, when the site disappeared (http://web.archive.org/web/20070623142517/http://www.touhouproject.com/) and was then put under construction (http://web.archive.org/web/20070921182022/http://www.touhouproject.com/).
- The site as we know it - kinda - saw the net's light on the 8th of january 2008, according to the admin's first message on the homepage: http://web.archive.org/web/20080112115311/http://www.touhouproject.com/. Interesting are the TouhouTube and Releases sections. Almost all them are saved, just go and browse around.
- The site went on during 2008 and 2009 (http://web.archive.org/web/20090803100351/http://www.touhouproject.com/) until middle august, when the site dies (http://web.archive.org/web/20090822050540/http://www.touhouproject.com/) and stays dead (http://web.archive.org/web/20090918084911/http://www.touhouproject.com/) at least at that address.

- THP revives on the 1st of september 2009, under our current domain (http://web.archive.org/web/20090908185556/http://www.touhou-project.com/). Also the infamous /coriander/ board is added during that period, the first of many addictions - http://web.archive.org/web/20090415000000*/http://www.touhou-project.com/coriander/. That's pretty much the site's general history.

There are a couple of very interesting threads in the post-revival /gensokyo/ section of the site (http://web.archive.org/web/20090930151449/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo), in particular these ones:

- http://web.archive.org/web/20090923141810/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/806.html#852 and http://web.archive.org/web/20090907164223/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/1468.html give an explanation about why the domain switch happened.
- http://web.archive.org/web/20090907163000/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/932.html is a huge recap of all active writers/stories during that period.

The general timelines are here:
- Old domain: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.touhouproject.com/
- Current domain: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.touhou-project.com/

Thanks Keine Internet Archive. It was nice knowing this place's story. Probably part of you already knew this, but whatever.
Thank you for all of this. It's always nice to hear more about THP's past.
