The X-Men Dangling Plotline List was originated by Laura Burchard. That was version 1.0. Tom Galloway provided v2.0 and he collaborated with Connie Hirsch for versions 3.0 and 4.0. Robi Karp's run as editor of this project started in July 1992 with v5.0, and an amended version appeared in May 1993 as v5.1. Then, Paul O'Brien took over the list in 1994. His first updated version was v6.0. The first version to include the New Mutants page was v7.0.
Version 8.0 was a rewrite of almost the whole dangler list. A slightly updated version, v8.1, came out in June 1995. Version 9.0 came out in December 1995 and, eighteen months later, v9.1. Christian Henriksson and Robert Wisham took over the dangler lists from v9.2, which featured updates to already existing entries. Version 10.0, which arrived in October 2000, added Excalibur.
Now that the lists have made their way to the Uncanny X-Men.Net to be further worked on by Redguard (Mandeep Jangi) and Peter Luzifer, we have decided to drop the versions numbering. Instead of updating the entire dangler lists altogether, we will work on one page at a time, so an overall version number no longer makes sense. However, if you prefer to have a number, you can just call it version 11.0.
