A note from Santress V (Joanne Ascunsion), creator of Vplace:

The Virtual Hangout was first started in 1995 as an idea inspired by some very kewl VeePsters. It started out as a need for a place to hang outówell, an alternative place to the dreaded start page for VP anyway. The AV gallery idea was inspired by Shari who wore the wonderful Gen13 Sarah Rainmaker avatar.

(Thank you, Shari, it was you who started it all!)

I dedicate this page to all my wonderful VP friends whom I met over the years, especially the old VP crew. I remember the time when there was just a handful of us (yes! you can count ëem). May all your dreams come true, wherever you are.
