This site has been through countless editors, guest editors, and even names during the time it's been up. So, I'm going to give you a rundown so no one gets confused.
Back in April 1999, I started a little site called "NSYNC: Sorry Guys But You're So Easy To Pick On". It was called by the shortened name "NSYNC: Sorry Guys". I ran it by myself, until a girl named Brianne signed my guestbook talking about how she liked the site and liked to write NSYNC Humor too. So, I wrote her and asked if she would like to work on the site with me, since I needed help.
It was just the two of us, and then in maybe October of 99, I could be wrong here, I changed the site name to "Transcontimental". The other name was way too long.
About a week later, NSYNC announced they were LEAVING Transcon, so that name was shot to hell. At the same time, I had gotten an email from Nikki of "got justin?" a humor site, asking if I wanted to combine sites with her. I agreed, and "Everybody's Free To Make Fun Of NSYNC" was born. Nikki and Alex (from got justin?) joined me, and we put all the sites contents together in November of 99.
Also in November, Amy joined the Everybody's Free site as an editor. In late November 99 Nikki left the site [Nikki's Farewell Message, Our Goodbye to Nikki, featuring JRT], then Amy left in late December 99. They opened their own site around January (I think) called "Party Like NSYNC".
Alex continued to write for Everybody's Free, while I was internetless for a few months, and she kept things going great [Happy Anniversary]. Then in July of 2000, Alex and Brianne both left [Alex's Goodbye], leaving me as the sole editor again.
I put up a page searching for editors, and Mary and Tabz joined me as writers. In November 2000 I decided once and for all to stop the site [Why Brit Left], and due to my decision, Tabz went to continue her site "The Jokes On Juju". Mary also planned to work on JOJ but never quite made it. She can still be found over at her site "Digital Getdown...Southern Style".
I received 2 emails, from Nina and Olivia, asking me to keep the site up. Olivia moved the contents of her site "It's Gravy Baby!", and in late December 2000 they got an email from Allison. She and her friend Janine ran the humor site "Digital Letdown". When Neene could no longer help, Allison asked if she could join the crew. Nina and Olivia agreed and combined the contents of her site with Everybody's Free.
Then in January 2001, Olivia got an email from Lucky, who contributed while I was editor, complimenting on how well they were keeping up the site. They used her submissions, and after a couple weeks she became an editor.
Nina left in March 2001 to start her own site "Behind The Band...What's Your Obsession?" Shortly after that, Tabz returned (while still keeping up JOJ) and BexXx, Mel and Kari of the humor zine "Peace, Love, & Bass" merged with the site. PLB stands on its own, but the editors are now considered part of the site and vice-versa.
The site made it to its two year anniversary in April 2001 [EF's Anniversary!], and in honor of this the name was changed again. The new crew wanted to bring their own flava, while respecting the past. Plus, each of the girls felt that NSYNC has in fact, 'jaded' each of them in one way or another, thus the name "*NSYNC Jaded Everybody's Free".
Kari left in late June 2001, so Julie of the site "Dirty Popstars" became an official part of the team, and here's what you have now. Everybody's Free, with 7 editors: Olivia, Allison, Lucky, Tabz, BexXx, Mel and Julie.
The site's third anniversary in April 2002 [*NJEF's Anniversary!] was the first time the list of editors stayed the same, and it's been that way ever since. In February 2003, Tabz closed "The Jokes On Juju" and moved the contents to the site. Other anniversaries followed [Fourth, Fifth] and when Geocities closed in October 2009, Julie's work from "Dirty Popstars" was also moved.
I miss working on this site, but it's ok.. I still get to write humor. I can't wait to see what else the other girls do with the site, and I'm glad they kept it up. I want to thank all the readers and editors of the site, past and present. You guys all rock. Peace.
