mentioned since the beginning of modern time, slender man is a tall, dark, being that lives in wooded areas and feeds off fear and child flesh. he
usually finds a victim that is vulnerable and easy enough to handle, then haunts them until they get proxies. he then confronts them to make them feel safe, and takes the child, and disappears without a sign that he was ever there. the fear of this entity is very much alive, and will remain.

once he knows who you are, you will never be safe again, there is no running he will find you..

Slender Man is a proven internet hoax.

Slenderman is a creation for a 2009 contest on the something awful forums that was good enough that it is now an urban legend.

Slender man is an internet hoax that spiraled out of control. Many people claim to see him in real life or have had some kind of encounter with him. But he has proven to be a fake.

Where has Slenderman been mentioned before modern time?

Internet hoax like the others have said but also, there are dozens of topics on Slenderman already on UM. Some not even that old.

Also one of the original Slenderman photo's is from Stirling, Australia. Not too far from where I live. The myth was that fourteen kids went missing around the time of the photo being taken. Fourteen kids have never gone missing at once in Stirling or the whole of Australia.

Wow. That is quite a pounding for a new Member to recieve. Welcome to the UM forums. Maybe slenderman was not the best first post? Probably you should have used the Search function and posted a comment about Slenderman first.

One thing that I do remember from a previous Thread... It was said that the movie Tall Man, is about slenderman.... but (Spoiler) it isn't. Don't waste your time on this movie if you want to see something about slenderman.

He's been given an invented backstory.  Made-up stuff about a German legend of Der Großman.  16th Century German engravings have been altered to turn a skeletal figure into a many-limbed freak.  Pictures of hieroglyphics have been Photoshopped to include a thin multi-armed dude.  The idea was to create the impression that he has been known throughout history under different names and guises.   I think most of the people posting about this on blogs know it's just an urban myth but they just like the idea of inventing this mythological boogie man and giving him legendary stories and a history.  Some people fail to see that it isn't true though and that he is entirely a modern fiction of recent years.

Welcome to UM.

On behalf of UM please answer these simple generic questions that will save us all from asking. Please do not take offense to these questions, this will help clear up confusion.

0. Are you asking for help or opinions?
We have people who post here with question and then get annoyed when a member gives a different perspective on what may of happened.

1.Where did this happen?
Such as location of place, cross streets, Near a store, if in a building what room.

2. What Time did it happen?
A guess on the time, if not was it Day time, night time, Full moon.

3. What were you doing to witnesses this event?
More detail than i was walking down the street and then i saw...

4. Did you catch it on Camera/Phone?
If not, Why not?

4a. If you caught it on a phone?
Did you know we are aware of Ghost Apps where people put photos into the pictures?

4b. Did you caught an orb?
Read this http://ssprstn.tripod.com/id65.html this gives you a chance see the more hardware causes on how your photo may of caught that orb.

5. Describe paranormal "thing" in detail.
E.G The Slender was roughly 6ft6, he wore a black suit, that covered his body with a white undershirt, he has a tie that is also black. The suit looks roughly like silk and his shoes was clean leather black. His face looked white like a mask but lacked any facial details. His suit would turn into tentacles

6. Did you wake up or was a sleep?
It might be a thing called Sleep Paralysis http://www.webmd.com...sleep-paralysis

7. Did this happen to you or to some one else.
You be amazed people tell us this story and forgot to mention thi

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route to find out what really happened.
