Hello friends. We have a lot to talk about.
First of all, I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to the families of the victim and the suspects of the mythos related stabbings. We here at the Slender Man Wiki have an obligation to make a statement and take a stand to protest the sad and terrible incident in which two girls stabbed a friend to join the 'Slender Man'.
As one of the most well respected Slender Man Databases on the web, we need to say that this is not acceptable in the eyes of the community here, and this is a prime example of what happens when the mythos is taken too far.
On the other hand, Slender Man turns five years old today. We will be running a blog post replicating the original comedy GOLDMINE forums where slender man was created. I have made an account for this purpose, the User name being Viktor Surge to pay homage to Eric on the SA forums, as that is the name of his user account that he used to create the 'Slender Man' there 5 years ago.
Hopefully this will be a celebratory week in the community, and hopefully by stressing the origins of this monster story we can not only prove to the world that we are not evil dark-cult goblins hiding in the shadows, but go back to our roots as well and remember how it all started.
