THE HISTORY OF OURWORLD FM
ourWorldFM was originally set to launch in November 2011 (and was for the game above — but has since expanded). Skye Pie had high hopes for this wonderful station; but that all changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Just kidding, but problems arose, and Lord Pie was unable to get the site up and running. The entire site was stuck in limbo for an entire year!
But fear not. Skye Pie has quite the detailed history when it comes to fan-based websites and taking things out of limbo. He has owned and managed many sites, including the #1 recognized ourWorld-based website, www.ourgemcodes.com. With some bribes to wizards and conspiracies with members of Wonderland’s Millinery Security, Skye Pie finally decided to re-launch the ourWorldFM website and have it up and running for good this time!
November 20th, 2011: Beginnings or Endings?
So along came Version 1. Our adventure originally began here, on this very webpage. All was set to launch on November 20th, 2011. The ourWorldFM was looking for a strong community of mighty warriors before launching one of the most important things; that being this exact website.
The ourWorldFM website ended up kicking off just under a month after the original date, on December 18th, 2011. The reviews were extremely positive and enthusiastic, plus our warrior race of followers kept getting bigger and bigger! We gained a huge and rather incredible fanbase, and each day it kept rapidly expanding. We wanted this, of course; who wouldn’t? But strangely enough, toward the end of December, Skye Pie decided to tie the site to a post and move on to something new. What is this, you ask? Keep pondering.
The months flew by as quickly as kids eat Halloween candy. After August had come and gone, the impending doom of school holidays piled a great amount of pressure upon Lord Pie. The ourWorldFM station began to fade away into the background; becoming old news. Every day, more and more people forgot about it, until the face of disaster appeared.
Skye Pie had to make a crucial decision: would he pick the website back up? Or would he continually walk away? Mr. Pie declared that he’d never go back to the ourWorldFM, but three months later…
November 1st, 2012: The Comeback
The wonderful ourWorldFM station made its comeback on Novemeber 19th, 2012. Random trivia fact: this was about three months after it was about to close down for good. Lord Pie has always stuck firmly by the old saying: “Finish what you begin.”. The OGC Forum members were more than excited about this, and were especially excited to hear the radio streaming again!
Although you may not realize it now, the future of the ourWorldFM website is completely unknown at this point. We basically made a third re-launch, but it feels like we are starting it for the first time. If we can get regular listeners, plus a full-fledged staff of DJ’s, then we can officially take wing and soar high to the skies of eternal legit website-dom.
Hopefully this works out, but we need your help to do that! Please keep tuning in. Please keep showing us your support. We love and appreciate each and every one of you out there, and we hope that we can make this site strong together. This is just the beginning.. again.
November 15th, 2013: The Redesign
ourWorldFM has been streaming 24/7 for over a year. That’s crazy. When we add all the listener hours from the past year it equals to over 20 years of listening time. Needless to say, this has been a successful station. And we hope for it to continue to be successful.
This year we’ve added an entirely new system to the site. We aim to be the best online radio station. We no longer are a station for ourWorld but a station for ALL VIRTUAL WORLD GAMES. We’ve also connected our station to our almighty forum, which will connect to our network of virtual world games.
At this point in time, the future of ourWorldFM looks bright. We hope you stick around for the long haul. Who knows? We might become one of the biggest stations worldwide! We got to hope, right?
October 10th, 2016: The Project
ourWorldFM and the game ourWorld.com have both seen their peak in popularity and a decline in usage of the site and station. The repercussions of traffic has shown a steady decrease in revenue made in advertising on both sites. In 2014, this led to the demise of ourWorldFM and ourWorld.com to financially bankrupt. Fortunately for ourWorld, they were able to get additional funding. However, because ourWorldFM is funded independently, the station was forced to close down temporarily. But in August of 2016, Donny Pie aka Skye Pie was able to resurrect the station and continue his project on the code and social aspect in gaming.
This time around, Donny Pie has focused on automating ourWorldFM. Now you can find the latest news and updates that update without ever having to make a post. The convenience to doing this guarantees that ourWorldFM will ALWAYS stay up-to-date no matter what. The station also streams music 24/7 without any dead-air.
With the automation of ourWorldFM along with useful tools for ourWorld, the greater goal is to create a website like Twitch.Tv but instead of video, the site is focused on podcast/radio station for gaming. Sometimes gamers would like to listen to background music while playing a game rather than actively watching someone else play the same game. This project was helped and engineered by Habbo.com radio stations. Thank you for supporting Donny Pie and his passion to create/develop more social tools for society.
