There is an email address on this page with their rules and even some non-Elder Dragon generals:

Yeah, that's David Phifer's page. His apartment was the place the format was first played.

This topic probably diserves a post-it. IT'S THE EXPLANATION OF EDH'S ROOTS ! :P

These forums clearly had a great hand in it, but how and when did the format get really popular? I know it started to actually get pushed very publicly all of a sudden; I know you, Sheldon, were writing about it on SCG, but I was reading about it on the Wizard's site, and eventually after some time later they even printed the rules in the From the Vault:Dragons set which had an alternate art Nicol Bolas, the general of the progenitor of the format. It even has a paid, supported version on MTGO (Commander 100 Highlander). So it is pretty much a format supported by Wizards. So what was it that made WotC sit up and take notice in what seems to me all of a sudden? Any ideas? You say, "And the rest is history," but I'm not sure it is, as the details seem fuzzy thereafter, compared to other formats like Type 2 or Vintage.
