Christian's decade running this site has seen fractals make great strides into 3D and even Hollywood!

It is truly something he, and all of us, can be proud of being a part of making happen  afro

But since I'm a big fan of History, let us not forget this forum's beginnings.

A man who called himself heneganj founded this site, and ran it for several years before selling it to Christian, who made it grow and become the thing it is today.

I'm curious - do any of our older members know what became of heneganj?

Did he really just leave everything behind when he moved on?

I'd be curious to know what he thinks of what became of his baby now that it's all grown up and ready to leave home!

So once again - a big thank you to Christian, heneganj, and everyone who helped make this place into something special.

There is no sutch thing as fractal wiki. There are lots of star war/trek wikis about just whatever. If someone is makeing site like fractalforums.com maybe somene could counsider wiki fractals.
When you do formulas and algorithms the one thing what would be very good would be fractal encyclopedia.

It just so happens that we are building The All New Fractal Forums right now!

I'm not sure how a wiki would fit into a forum since a forum allows for everyone to contribute to any repository of knowledge they want.  I see them as pretty much the same thing, just in different clothing.

But then again, my brain is made entirely out of wood and I sometimes see the world very differently than you flesh and blood types...

Regardless, watch for the Public Beta test of Fractal Forums Mark II in the coming weeks!  Feel free to make your suggestions there and then   afro

A wiki could be used to organize "formal" documentation regarding algorithms, formulas, programs etc. while the forum can serve as... well... a forum where the discussion and debate takes place huh?

The forum has many times led to experimental ideas that then became established and recognized as relevant and important. A wiki only is not an ideal platform to develop such new ideas, but a wiki can be used to order the information in a much better way. I have noticed that I become more interested in a subject if there's a wiki about it because it's so easy to learn more. I think it's a good idea.

@ alef and 3dickulus:
parallel to the new iteration of fractal forums I am working on this encyclopedia about fractals:
http://www.fractal.institute/temp/encyclopedia/mathematics/
and I could definitely need some help in there, especially in the mathematics category - so if anyone wants to contribute here and there, just let me know!

I too would like to applaud Christians gesture for this years contest and thank him for all the work done here. This place and the people behind it are what relaunched my art, and allowed the work I started with Dali to evolve and take leaps not imagined.
So my sincere thanks to Christian and everyone who has participated in anything here

@LMarkoya I've been a fan of yours ever since I got my first Amiga, your works encouraged me to look deeper, much much deeper  A Beer Cup

@Chillheimer FF user Adam Majewski has created (I think it was him huh?) a wiki with a lot of good stuff like https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Fractals
I am not a  large math brain like some of you folks here but I would be looking at contributing to and using Adam's wiki because it is already established and growing wink
Could this be integrated/referenced in the new and improved FF instead of starting a new one from scratch? I also like the established wiki format and layout because it's familiar to navigate and easy to use. Your page at http://www.fractal.institute/temp/encyclopedia/mathematics/ looks really nice but there would be a learning curve and registration... imho there's no need to reinvent the wheel. I do hope you view this as constructive criticism as it is in no way meant to be anything else.

There seems that there is something like that. Not full analog of star wars wiki. Its more like repository of knowledge like one generated in fractalforums. When you need some information you can get it. I think fractals and rendering would be perfect. This seems good but more abouth math:

there's also my favourite http://paulbourke.net/fractals/

I personally am no fan of wikis, I prefer a nice look - if you want to reach many people, presentation is everything (of course it has to be easy to navigate, that's a plus for wikis)

I've been working on the fractal.institute site for a long time now. it is not only about mathematics but all areas of science.
of course I will continue (or actually start) to promote this more than other sites. wink
I hope to link it closer to fractalforums someday, linking articles there with discussions here, driving new traffic here as well as there. But only if people like the idea.
Right now there is still a lot of other work to do at fractal forums iteration 2. smiley
