The Wylie View was started in the summer of 1998. Alicia White was learning web design and wanted a web site to showcase the Wylie Fire Department photos she had taken for a photojournalism class. Alicia came up with the name The Wylie View and started posting the photos for her friends and family to see.
Soon after, Alicia wanted to learn a little more about her community and wondered how others felt about their city. She posted an opinion poll and noticed she got a few hits. It was then she decided to start a free message board so people could share their opinions.
More members meant more upkeep – it was too much for one person. In 2003, Alicia enlisted the help of two other members, Joel and Tamo, to assist with the registration of new members and the daily monitoring of posts.
In February 2006, four moderators were added to help with the ever increasing topics being discussed. Joel, Tamo and Alicia needed help because the membership base had increased dramatically. With that Mrs_T, marknjul, Mortimer and ericbrown97 were invited to assist in the daily operations.
In July 2006, a Limited Liability Corporation was formed. Press Release. The LLC initially had 11 members: President Mrs_T, Vice-President Mortimer, Secretary CThor, Treasurer jeffpcox, Sergeant of Arms PKGuy323, DTT, man_kash, marknjul, Joel, Rick White and Alicia.
Now serving The Wylie View are nine members committed to maintaining a respectable message board for its diverse group of members with the goal to be a good steward to the community of Wylie, Texas in which it serves.
