Today's history was yesterday's news. So - on this page you will find both news and history, all related to the AW Community Register's organization and events. 

This page is our contribution to one page of AW's history book. In the Archives we already have saved lots of information of the history of many of AW's communities, but nothing there is about AW Community Register's history. So, why not our own history page as well:) 

We also challenge all organizations and communities writing their page of AW's history; Events, councils, major developments and every now and then a count of members -  and so on. It might look less important today, but in a couple years someone will be glad to find it:).

Fall: While ComReg's mission to help AW communities promote themselves might live on, the ComReg community web register has been closed. Due to few updates this is most likely no surprise to anyone. A handful updates that were sent in over the past months will of course be added to the register before the keys and secret codes are burried.

The register used to archive registrations that had not been updated or veriefied for 6 months. Now all the most recently archived communities are back on the lists, because with no more updates the ComReg will serve as a huge archive with information you might need one day :-)  Very old communities are still in archives, though.

Long Live AW, greetings from Bille.
November 26, 2003.
