History

2012

The months in which these actions exactly took place are unknown.

Isaac Hymer creates his first social network, known as "Social-Paradise." It was one of the first websites to be categorized as a "SANS" (Social Avatar Network Script) website.

2013

Social-Paradise continues, revamped for 2013 with a new header.

June

  • June ?: Social-Paradise is shutdown for unknown reasons, displaying this text on every page:

Error. Page cannot be displayed. Please contact your service provider for more details. (4)

2015

The months in which these actions exactly took place are unknown.

Isaac Hymer and Bailey (last name unknown) revamp an older SANS website created by Bailey known as World2Build, first created in 2011. This website didn't have a long life, as it was raided by Roblox users daily for their similarities, including the overall design, catalog items, and even the sub-forum names.

A user named Sauceyy, (now known as "Dextend" on BloxCity) was a tester for World2Build's website before launch, here are some words from him. "It was a very hyped and long worked website, many people I knew were jealous that I had early access, I even helped make some items on it, heh, I won't lie, I did rip off many Roblox items, but that's what the community enjoyed."
