The Mainframe is a fanon created by r/OStan user and member, Sinclair-Speccy. Originally created in 2019 as Appendix, it has gone through some reworks to wipe itself of any old ideas that at the time of creation were awful and bad. Sinclair's fanon aims to be free of glurge while including more male characters and redundant OSes/computers. The name change for the fanon occurred in 2021 as an attempt to start "fresh" all over again. In the beginning, The Mainframe mainly focused on making characters for iPhones and etc.
As of 2023, a part of The Mainframe has sort of become a story to revive old ideas. As for a simple explanation of the plot...:
When a seemingly regular school trip takes an unexpected turn, three high school students, James, Alex, and Rohan, are thrown into an extraordinary adventure. They are transported to The Mainframe, a fascinating realm, where they find a universe populated by OS-tans - living manifestations of operating systems, computers, and much more.
They set out on a journey to solve the secrets of The Mainframe and return home. They build unbreakable relationships, learn essential lessons about collaboration, and confront tough obstacles along the way. Will their technological skills be sufficient to live in this new environment and find the mysteries hidden beneath The Mainframe?
Although this isn't really a story, these are some of the characters from The Mainframe that I think are somewhat notable or were decent characters I put together. Some of them don't have icons or pages as of yet, or their pages are lacking information.
