OS-Tan Collections is the only active international forum for all things related to the OS-Tans. Founded by FabianN in 2005, it has grown to gigantic proportions in late 2006, with the addition of heavy users and new doujin artists.


Back during 2005, FabianN, the original admin of OS-Tan forums, founded the forum as a result of his interest in OS-Tans. OS-Tan Collections grew slowly from then on, remaining a low-profile forum, small compared to Nijiura or Wakachan. FabianN would leave in late 2005, leaving the forum to the care of the current admins Pitkin and Fedora-tan. It was stagnant during the summer of 2006, receiving less than a post per day and was considered for closing. In the late summer, the arrival of a flock of new members and the addition of the website of Google and Wikipedia would breathe new life into the forum. The expansion of the gallery during late 2006 would make the forum a gateway for people interested in OS-Tans. The addition of the Wiki and Download Section in early 2007 started a new era for the forum, but the best chapters of the forum's history are still being written.
