Tf2 comp history records

Is there a site or are there records where you can look back on the history of tf2 conp, good or bad, to keep as evidence to the outside world that we actually had a great history?
If not, why not? I keep hearing stories about the legends of old occasionally in mumble or on some threads here, but there is very little to explore - only asking the original messenger or some old yt videos

There really should be somewhere to specifically look back on and enjoy the stories people have had in this community before us

I really wanted to get people who had been around for ages, guys like Marxist, the Fragile, eXtine and do a youtube series talking about who old school guys were and what their legacies in the game actually are. Wanted to do something like thorins who is X videos and in cases where the person was accessible doing something like his reflections videos.

The closest we ever got were sideshows brief on the point series and kritzkasts recent talking with ... live stream series is good as well although it is much less sixes focused.

combination of exam stress and hard disk failure led to many of the presentations for that event being lost, unfortunately.

some of them exist somewhere out there, i'm sure. the course admin/ TA-type folks local recorded mumble audio to every class, but not all of them were saved (including some of the TFTV stream stuff, unfortunately)

agreed a thorin type thing where someone with a lot of knowledge discusses players histories and stuff is something i feel like this game really deserves

kbtoDreamboat...agreed a thorin type thing where someone with a lot of knowledge discusses players histories and stuff is something i feel like this game really deserves

Personally, I never felt confident in my knowledge to do it myself, and at one point pre covid I felt motivated and pulled a small group together to do it, but then I had a flood and was without my setup for 3 months, and then covid happened and I just haven't had motivation or time to try and do it again.

mustardoverlordif only I weren't so lazy and had actually spent the last 10 years actively writing down my memories. . .

^this
i often find that ive forgotten about a lot of things, including events i was actually involved in and it takes some very directed, prompting questions to even make me remember shit from that long ago
its a shame cause ive definitely been around for some of the funnier and outlandish tf2 moments and people generally enjoy when i tell stories nd dat
man just cant remember innit....

This came to my attention thanks to seeds that this message came the wrong way sorry i phrased it REALLY badly, I meant that its sad that it calls yomps active since he died now (thats why i said "sadly"), I was not making fun of him in any way, it wasnt a joke and I want to apologize if I offended anyone. Sometimes my english doesnt translate my feelings right i guess.
I lost an ex-teamate and homie to similar circumstances to what happened to yomps, it was a few weeks ago and would hate if someone were to joke about their death.

Love to everyone, RIP yomps and RIP roux.

does anyone have an archive of the R E L A X seanbud video? i used to watch it bi-weekly for general life motivation and it was one of my favorite pieces of art to come out of the competitive tf2 scene.

Also, I know the demo for CW's 82 frag game was uploaded, but is there anywhere the VOD for the cast got saved? Or anything from the very first ESEA seasons + pre-ESEA leagues? How did we even get from i32 to having class restrictions?
