The resources listed under this section are labeled as “historical guides,” as they no longer reflect the community’s methodology or standpoints as a whole. These works can contain outdated and even potentially harmful advice, crass language, or are written by ex-members of the community who may have had problems in their lives at the time of writing that could influence their works.
It is advised to read these guides with an air of skepticism and caution as a result; they are presented in the Tulpanomicon for the sake of historical documentation of community resources that had a major impact when the community was in its infancy.

I looked at the forum today, the new changes were overwhelming. I sense that not everyone is being completely truthful, yet, the sense of community there is astounding. I really liked the new page for user submitted guides. I must say, I'm quite surprised that Fede hasn't killed himself yet, it seems as though the community likes him about as much as I do. I hope that you're a little bit wary about who knows what and who has what. If that secret tulpa board still remains, make sure at least someone is monitoring it, as I believe that it's the sort of thing that could breed roleplaying if left alone.
I knew from the beginning that you'd make and keep a site that was not only a good tool for the community as a whole, but a place where people could go and congregate as a whole. I still don't regret leaving it, as I feel like in effect I would have definitely imposed my worldview and opinions on everyone and generally fucked things up, because let's be honest, that's just sort of thing I do. Without me being a tulpaforcing Gestapo, I see there are new methods which seem promising.
Lastly, color me faintly amused that the whole "tulpae" thing is still, well, a thing. Initially it was sort of an experiment of mine, to see how many people would follow me after I implemented a change to the terminology which was completely, for lack of better terminology, faggy. Of course, I see that "tupper" is now an acceptable word as well. Oh, how culture changes.
I'll continue to lurk your site and not answer the slew of emails I get. Most of them are in Russian, and hell, I remember the cold war. Fuck Russians and their shitty language. It sounds like butch lesbians having a gang bang when spoken. The English emails I get are typically people who haven't read the guides.
I haven't talked to anyone but the guy who runs grabthebird.tumblr.com, anyone else who says so is a liar and a tool.
Just letting you know I'm not dead in a ditch somewhere, as I think a lot of people were beginning to get that impression.
