Cytag was the department in charge of the internet from the Dutch youth center 'de Tagrijn' in Hilversum, The Netherlands. In the early days, the cytag servers hosted multiple Dutch furry websites and the Dutchfurs mailinglist. The days on Cytag.nl there is a forum ran by part of the original crew. (which version of forum ??)
- Address: http://www.cytag.nl (404)
- Founders: Gerard Lohuis
- Administrators: Pegla (back then known as Simba), Cyclops, Piep, Q, Drekhed, Koed & Socrates
- Ran from/to: 1994 - 2006 (Organisation as part of the Tagrijn)
- Ran from/to: 2006 - 2008 (Stand alone forum run by FoxSan, Pegla, Mastah & Birdman)
- Ran from/to: 2008 - 2009 (Stand alone forum run by Cyclops & Koed)
 The beginning
In 1994 the idea of a cyberbar was realised by Gerard Lohuis, back then manager of the Tagrijn, and several regulars offered to volunteer to service the new network: Koed, Pegla (back then known as Simba), Socrates and Drekhed. During the 90's, internet access was not as widespread in the Netherlands as it is now. The Cytag's main function was to provide a lounge area in the attic of the Tagrijn and internet access for the Tagrijn guests for a fee of 2,50 guilders per 15 minutes (1 euro/ 1,50 dollar).
 LAN parties & events
Between 1998 and 2002 the Cytag organized various LAN parties, some of them furry themed. During that time the Tagrijn also organized 2 Sega Game Days, where Cytag provided their support.
 The UBB (forum)
Around 1998 the 'Cytag Information Server' got expanded, after several of the volunteers of the Tagrijn asked for a forum. As the visitor count for the internet services started to decline and due to funding issues, the Cytag started to look in another direction. The Cytag UBB became a huge success, at the height of its days the forum had thousands of hits per hour and dozens of topics were opened per hour, making it difficult for the moderators to keep track.
 The decline
In 2004 the relations between the Tagrijn staff and the Cytag hit a new low. Arguments on the Cytag Forum that extended well into real life were the main cause of several heated arguments. Slowly the Cytag was becoming less and less powerful in the Tagrijn, people started to leave because the Tagrijn staff actively blocked every attempt of the Cytag to innovate. In 2006 the plug was pulled, and the websites on the server were forced to relocate. During that time, the Dutchfurs mailinglist went to google, and Dutchfurs.com was being hosted by Pegla in his home.
 The resurrection and split of the Forum
In 2006 FoxSan resurrected the Cytag Forum as an alternative for the Tagrijn Forum, unfortunately part of the 'old' userbase did never completely accept the new group of moderators. In 2008, disgruntled users of the Cytag.net forum decided to revive cytag.nl, shortly afterward FoxSan pulled the plug. In 2012 May the cytag.net was for sale.
 The end of Cytag
The forum died a silent death around 2009. The cytag.nl domain was suspended starting around mid-2010 and still suspended at present (2012 May).
