February 2021
> Rayman ReDesigner version 1.0 is released.
> To celebrate the speedrunning section's launch, Challenge of the Month is revived, with the challenge being to complete the Walk of Life as quickly as possible. Complications ensue when it turns out that the in-game timer cannot be trusted, meaning entries have to be manually timed (although an unofficial patch is soon published that makes the game count time properly).
> Ryemanni announces the end of new feature additions to Rayman ReDesigner. There is a degree of disappointment that there is no documented way for others to continue adding more features to the game, which is still very new.

March 2021
> The SpeedRay 2021 winners are announced, and they receive their prizes.
> More footage surfaces on YouTube of animation produced early in the 3D development of Rayman 2, which may or may not have been part of "Rayman's training".

> Droolie unveils the Rayman Raving Rabbids Prototype Restoration Mod, a new feature of the Rayman Control Panel allowing the enablement of cut Rayman 4 functionality and mechanics in a running copy of the Steam or GOG version of Rayman Raving Rabbids. Many members eagerly experiment with it, and discussion of the prototype's development and cancellation is renewed.
> Daniel Mansson, the composer for Rayman Junior, uploads a mix of tunes from his work on the game to YouTube. At the end of the month, Rayman Saturn posts the mix in the RayTunes topic. Many of the tracks were never heard before.

The short does not in fact contain all of the clips that were previously believed to be part of it.
> Thextera performs a damageless 100% run of Rayman 1 in 2h 10m 51s. The achievement is widely celebrated and is written up in The Gamer.

> Also on April Fools' Day, some footage appears, apparently showing gameplay from a long-lost educational spinoff of Rayman 2, known as "Rayman 2: Back to School" (which had indeed been referenced in a few sources). The footage shows a never-before-seen 3D version of Picture City.
> On 2 April, it is revealed that the "Rayman 2: Back to School" footage is real – however, it is not from a long-lost game, but (as some had already suspected) created using the Rayman 2 engine and tools leaked in February. It is announced as a bona fide fangame using the original Rayman 2 engine.

Good idea, but it's not looking great at the moment.

I could name some events that have happened, but I'm not old enough to know it all.

Don't worry. If we can get some older members to contribut, we would have a document that shows all the things that have happened since the start of PC's existence.

I left in 2004, I think. That was becuase I didn't have a computer at home during that time. I had to keep going up to the local library and booking computers to come here. It is only just recently that I have got my own internet connection.

You should add some stuff about the contests and raytunes, and the up and coming raygallery, and Hunchman's update of the rank list.

Pianoman, this is the best idea you've had since you joined :D Of course I once thought of making a documentary, but I was too busy to start it.
However, it will have to be perfected. First of all, it must not be a summary of the PC news page, but a documentary mainly focused on the forum, which is the central part of our community. As a consequence, many lines such as additions to the R³ folder are useless.
Then, we will have to add many things, and to ask old members what they remember from old times. No month is not noteworthy in the history of PC ;)
I will soon modify it (on my computer) to show you how I would improve it.
Good luck anyway, and count on me!
