Transcript of Slender Man
disorted and can teleport at will. June 8th, 2009, on Somwthing Awful forums a "paranormal
picture contest" was under roll. The contest required the contestant to change a regular photo into a creepy-looking image and pass them all through any paranormal websites. People all over the web started posting their fake paranormal hoaxes of ghosts and others that would define this world.
June 10th, a man named Victor Surge posted two black and white photos of children with a picture with the Slenderman stalking them in the background. June 11th Victor desided
to continue the myth by uploading another image and a
fake doctor's account. The next day "LeechCode5" posted
a picture of a burning building with aSlender Men
backstory. June 14th, "TrenchMaul" reused
Slender Man for his own story. This is the
orginal thread. 46 pages, and still
active today. The creation of Slender Man has also been inspired by a
series of amateur adventure games named "Chzo Mythos", published by Ben Croshaw in 2003. In the game, one of the main villans is named "Cabadath" or "Tall Man." His first in-game appearance on one game, Trilby's Notes, the character was portrayed in the 3rd installment as a tall, thin man wearing a long, black high-collared coat with tails that reach to the floor and having a featureless, white face. Throughout the game, you
can see him stalk you and also attempt to kill the main character. Der Grossmann is German for "The Great Man" or even "The Tall Man." The rumor is to be a German folklore concerning a tall boogeyman existing since the 16th century. Introduced to the mythos as an "In-Game" point of origin for this creature. Another series is a web series called TribeTwelve, it has been resued in scary web stories called creepypasatas. Other up coming names are Schwarzwald or "The Black Forest," an actual place in Germany were the creature is said to have first appeared and Der Ritter, The Knight, based on the several
16th century woodcuts by Hans Freckenberg that featured
a strange figure duelling another man. March 17th,
2011, Encyclopedia Slenderia posted a upload
revealing that the original woodcut
did not show extra limbs. Slender Man became a well-known mythical creature on the paranormal 4chan board. The earliest known mention of Slendy on 4chan can be found in an archived thread dating back to June 24th, 2009, through the conversation suggests that it had been mentioned prior. The image was coupled with hand-drawn discriptions and fan art.
Outside of 4chan, Slender has caught the attention of several other websites. July 26th, 2011, Notch, Minecraft's creator, posts on his Google+ account a screenshot of his game headlining his new monsters that appeared in an update not too long ago. He named them Enderman as a reference after someone coined the name Slender Man. These mobs, or creatures, can be found in a world in MC called, The End.
Because of the similarities in names and abilities with the Slender Man mythos, 4chan users asked Notch to change their name to "Far Landers." Notch wrote a tweet joking
about it and telling them that he had no plans of changing
their names. "Tomberry: Please introduce yourself a little. Who is Victor Surge? How long has he been a SA goon and how active is he there?
Victor Surge: I've been a goon for about four years, but I've lurked in the forums since '99. I'm not a large poster, but I spent a few years in EVE Online's goonfleet and spend a lot of time reading threads in the forums. I don't spend a lot of active time on the internet since I usually have a lot of real-life stuff
going on." Quote from
