Stormflint's recorded history seems to have begun about 10,000 years ago. As we've seen in other planets' civilizations, sentience seems to have sprung up rather quickly along with the urge to record the doings of the inhabitants, great and small.

A quite unique science fiction wiki

Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
