I think the biggest for me was Neopets. I spent SO many years on Neopets, starting as a kid and continuing on probably past the age it was acceptable. Occasionally I still try and remember my login info for any of my many accounts for nostalgia's sake, but of course I lied about my birthday so I can never get in.

Gaia Online….oof. I still remember having to beg my parents to buy me a few of the monthly exclusive items. I also remember one of my poor-er friends in high school saving up money and mailing bills/coins to Gaia to pay for a monthly item. That was (and still is) wild to me at the time.

He also showed me how to use ms paint and I remember being so shocked that you could draw on a computer. I would spend hours just drawing cute cats. I wish I still had those pics…

ashamedly, i still play neopets. i still find some aspects of it pretty fun, it has that "grind to meet your goals" appeal, as well as the nostalgia factor. i spend nowhere near as much time on it as i used to, though, and the place is pretty fucking dead now, it's kinda sad considering how many users it once had.

I actually just switched back to ICQ on my phone because Skype sucks now. Hearing the notification sound is super nostalgic haha. I'm not from Europe but I used it to talk to Euro friends I met on Myspace. I actually met my current partner on Myspace in like 2006 and we finally met a few years ago and have been together ever since. It's kind of embarrassing in a way because he's the only person left in my life that remembers how fucking CRINGE I was back then lol. Blame it on being a teenager I guess.

Did anyone here use the Linkin Park Community (LPC) website? Back in the day you could have a profile and write blog posts. I had a lot of friends on there and one girl from Finland even became my penpal. But nobody seems to remember what it used to be like!

No. 21363

One of my favourite childhood memories was my mom finding these paranormal websites with horrible early 2000s layouts that she'd look at with me for hours before bed. I follow a blog that posts screenshots of them now for the nostalgia factor. I also have good memories of playing dress up games after school and on weekends, although I wasn't allowed to play ones with male characters just in case they were inappropriate (overprotective mom lol).

The first site I had an account on was fanfiction, then deviantart. I used to write angsty horrible stories about an embarrassingly un-angsty series. It was surprising to revisit them recently to see I got reviews on the unfinished ones just last year.
For dA, did anyone else jump on that trend of having your dA friends listed as "family" in your description? They'd ask to be there then you'd give them and lolRANDUM xD description next to their icon. Sometimes I track down old friends from there but don't think I'll ever reconnect since it might be too weird.

Oddly didn't get into imageboards until I was 16 in 2013, so I don't count that as nostalgic. Even then I only used Tohno-chan of all places.

I was lucky enough to start using the internet around 2001/2002, so communities were small and fun. I used yahoo chat/cheetachat and AIM mainly. I got a livejournal and connected with friends. Man, i really do miss it all. I still keep in touch with some people and we've all grown up together, which is cool.

I just feel like FB doesn't have the same connection that LJ had, especially the comms there. I met a lot of people through AIM that i ended up friends with irl years later. The internet with so young.

No. 21385

gaiaonline was my life as a preteen. it was such an innocent time and appealed to my innate weebiness. people treated me with so much respect just because I had a few of those pay to win items (like the edgelord scarf).

that all changed when I found 4chan through a link on the gaia forums. IIRC, it was in someone's signature? it was in 2005-6 and after that I was pretty much ruined. any innocence I had was totally lost as I frequented /b/ most of all. I even participated in a few of the stupid habbo hotel raids. eventually I moved on to /v/ which also ruined my perception of video games but at least I wasn't being exposed to gore and dead animals constantly (which at the time, didn't bother me, but now 10 years later bothers me a whole fucking lot).

never got into neopets or anything, the majority of my time was spent on gaia, deviantart and 4chan, and assorted other forums. but once I got a boyfriend in 2008 my time on these sites tapered off and I was hardly online anymore. when we broke up and I did start using the internet more, I stopped going to 4chan except for /adv/ and /r9k/ occasionally. but 4chan had lost its edginess once I was an adult.

Dress up games (Roiworld was my shit), Barbie/Bratz/Polly Pocket games, Adventure Quest, and Room Escape Games were some of the big staples for me when I was a kid. Also pretty much any flash game aggregate website – I have fond memories of getting an entire computer lab of eleven-year-olds to play some horror games on BubbleBox when I was in sixth grade, and getting in trouble when they all started screaming at the jump scares.


Much like >>21343 my first "real" taste of the internet was watching funny videos with my brothers on Newgrounds when I was ten. Before that I only ever played offline computer games on our family's pc. Shorts to Wear Pants To, LazyMuffin, Attack of the Evil TV, etc. were some of the first things I watched on the internet.

>Gaia Online

I still have my account that I started ten years ago. Every couple years I'd get embarrased of my posts/art and delete them, and I wish I never had. I'd love to look at my old playlists and read my old stories. I'm a chronic deleter unfortunately and always delete shit. Same with my deviantart, my old Fanfic.net account, etc. I have a ton of Devil May Cry and Tomb Raider fanfic that's been lost to the void.

You just reminded me of all the times me and my mom would watch shitty low-res "real ghost" videos on youtube together when I was around ten. I'd insist that they didn't scare me, then later that night my mom would find me laying wide awake in bed, still insisting that I wasn't scared lol.

Around 98-99, when it first exploded in the US, I was all about Pokémon. I was ~13. I used to visit all kinds of shitty old websites with GameShark "codes" and shit. I'd read tons of fanfics and fanart and even submitted my own. There were so many shitty little xpages, geocities, angelfire websites related to pokemon back then and I could never get enough. Eventually I landed in probably my first real forum called TRHQ (TRHQnext? I think? I have a bad time finding anything about it 20 years later) It was a lot of fun.

There were sub forums for other anime and fanart and that's how I ultimately got into all that Japanese crap that I still love today.

Another internet nostalgia thing for me will always be AOL, like the actual web client with the built in browser and "you've got mail!" email. I used to go in the chatrooms as an adolescent girl, and now I just shudder thinking of what kinds of creeps I was probably talking with on a regular basis.

I remember one in particular had like 3 videos on a white background and I would get so creeped out by myself in the dark watching them. Some of the photos are still v famous and I get a lil nostalgia kick whenever I see them. This would've been circa 2000 probably? Give or take a year or two

Fellow Neopets vet here.

You can get rid of any holiday theme by going to your account settings and turning the theme option back to default.
If you install ad blocker it gets rid of the constant captchas, downside is you're not able to look at userlookups or things like that. But everything else is still usable.
Advent calendar season is my favorite because it's a lot of easy neopoints and it's fun to see what the team gives away.
I started replaying with my old account (2004) back in 2012. I've managed to paint all my pets all the colors I wanted as a kid so nowadays I can focus on the actual content. I'm not super serious, but I do like collecting and having things to show off.

I started playing old school runescape again since last week when I found out they have it for mobile. I still prefer playing on a desktop.

I don't remember the full details but before myvmk opened it was originally called openvmk and ran by two people named nick and amy. after openvmk opened there some mod name grace said that amy put a virus into the game so nick fired amy. then amy put out some statement saying that it was a lie and for the most part everyone believed her so amy just made myvmk while nick closed openvmk for good. most of the drama on myvmk seems like it's over Amy and the staff members behavior. I don't get how the game has so much drama when there aren't that many people playing it but eh.

I still find myself playing that Ice cream factory game, Solitaire or Pyramids on Neopets every now and then. I never gave a shit about the lore or the story or anything but the games were fun and offered a nice challenge. I stopped playing around the time (maybe 2006?) they introduced NeoCash and changed the sprites to those ugly ass ones they have now in order to enable customization clothing. It was such a fucking joke, the paint brushes were special because you could change the sprite but now they'd all look like shit so there's no point in getting one. It was impossible to get nice looking clothes for free too, you were stuck with the cheap looking freebie ones and those neocash items were pretty damn expensive. Like 15-20 dollars for a shirt? Even on a microtransaction level that's ridiculous.

oh hell yes pocket bishounen and pocket bishoujo, I used to get all my husbandos and waifus and stick them to my homepage back in like.. 2001-2003. For anons who don't know, in order to catch the character you had to answer 3-5 questions about them on their catching page and if you got them right, it would redirect you to the page where you could get the embed code for the character. I still remember one of my favourites having some answer wrong and being so pissed off about it because I couldn't catch them until I tried every combination possible.

Gdi, this thread has caused my 426th Neopets relapse. I wish I could quit you. My dumb monkey brain is filled with so much useless neopets info from the bajillion hours I spent playing as a kid.

What were your dream pets when you were young? For some reason I was obsessed with the idea of getting a Darigan Moehog, which is v ugly in retrospect.

Yeah, it's a goddamn mess at this point. It seems like there are so many obvious solutions to make the website less of a disaster.

I don't understand why they don't give people the option to switch between the new and old style for those who want it. I have backgrounds on my pets but no other customization, so I have no use for the "new" designs. Apparently the reason the site is so slow and broken with all the captchas is to prevent people from doing massive scans to find abandoned accounts to steal and sell. There's a market for UC pets that people pay real money for. If they gave people the option to chose the style it would remove the need for that market, basically killing 2 of their many birds with one stone.

And the birthday verification is so dumb, every one of my friends I played with lied about their bday when they started their accounts. I know I'm not the only adult who tried to login to their first account just for fun nostalgia's sake, but it's absolutely impossible between the fake birthday and the totally dead email address I used as a kid. They could have hooked those sad nostalgic adults (me) into playing again, and there would probably be less abandoned accounts for people to try and steal if it wasn't such a nightmare to try and login.

Alright, that's enough sperging about np for now.

-making sure your interests had a ton of unclickable ones because you were the ONLY person with that particular interest
-So many fic challenges! 15 minute fics, one-sentence fics, song challenges…
-Fandom cartoonists that have been totally forgotten but were briefly HUGE. Wizzart, that mspaint HP one, and there was a Potterpuff thing? And iharthdarth, which I kinda still think those Vader's Little Princess books ripped off.

I spent most of my youth on Quizilla and wrote a lot of shitty fanfiction and "quizzes" related to whatever anime I was into.

If that's the case maybe I'll give it another go. Would probably take a new account though given I got my old chatango account at 12 and yeah there's a lot of cringy things attached to it, username and all. I still keep in contact with some friends I made on it and it's kinda cute.

I wrote lots of horrible fanficstions too. Luckily I was too scared to publish them so they only circulated amongst IRL friends who were into the same anime as me. Sometimes when I feel up to it and want a kick of nostalgia, I give writing a go again and let friends read it for good old times. Makes me wonder if my favorite stories are still up on ff.net.

Web design and web developing actually were quite female-oriented things in the early 2000's, boys were usually more focused on programming computer programs and games.

It's a shame personal web sites aren't a thing anymore because it's what gave a lot of us the first push towards the tech field.

I keep hoping that the era of personal websites will come back eventually now that there is a big push to get girls interested in STEM but with social media being a thing I don't see it happening…but even MySpace and LJ were customizable with HTML back in the day.

tbh I think Neopets would go under before they successfully put out a working app, they barely have a working website. I got back into it again recently and I'm still always surprised at how little the website has advanced and how out of touch they are. I think that's why it keeps dragging me back though, it's comforting that it looks/works the same way it did when I first started playing 15+ years ago. But I agree, even coming back now after ~5 years since my last hiatus, I'm already out of things to do except blow a bunch of np on new pets. The r/Neopets community seems cool. I was pretty deep in the Tumblr Neopets community last time, maybe I'll try and get back in there.

It all gets boring after a while though, cause then I'm like, well, can't update my neohome, can't do this/that, only getting np towards the pets I guess. Then once you have the pets you want, what else is there? The battledome, I guess. I like the neopets reddit too. I go there to look for any updates before the actual site.

>itt everyone remembers what it was like to have friends

Really though, why was it that much easier to make friends back then? Or am I just imagining that? It seems like it was so easy to be a part of a specific online community and make (lifelong) friends. Why does that seem so impossible now? I feel like the closest thing now to that same niche community experience is lolcow, sadly enough.

No. 21510

Right, but there's still plenty of media I love that I would consider myself a huge fan of. But I guess I'm saying do those kind of niche fan communities still exist? Places like Tumblr or Twitter or devART or Reddit are all pretty broad "gathering places", even the subreddits.

No. 21511

You're right, that kind of more "intimate" niche fandom/general interest social networking doesn't really exist anymore in the same way it used to. Small communities like fan sites and forums are basically dead. I still regularly talk with people I met on forumS and on LJ almost 20 years ago but I haven't really made any new internet friends in a while as I find a lot of the more "open" communities on social media overwhelming.
I really miss AIM tbh. What is a good substitute? I was using it until it shut down and usually just text people now but it's not the same.

No. 21512

I never made real friends but I met so many guys though myspace. It's bizarre looking back on it, but it was totally normal to add random strangers you thought were cute, I can't believe my ass was bold enough to ever do it when these days I balk at using tinder.

No. 21513

i know exactly what you mean. even in a lot of online games now you can have 50 ppl standing in a group and not a single person saying anything in public chat. could have something to do with the culture shifting to be so hostile but idk. seems like a lot of people are ready to just jump and attack others for any justification they can come up with for it.

i think so many people have been traumatized by online backlash
that they're too scared to try to make friends anymore, or they're just so fed up they cant be bothered to deal with the toxic environment. i know in my case, after so many times ive felt like part of a group or in a friendship, suddenly there would be some emotional manipulation going on where i was constantly on eggshells around everyone and trying hard to apologize and do what everyone wanted in order to be happy and still wound up ostracized anyway. so im too paranoid to try again. its terrifying to go from that point of feeling accepted and safe and like you have friends to suddenly not knowing what it was you did to ruin it all and i just never want to experience that again so i avoid talking to people and making new friends.

No. 21514

I have at least two Neopets accounts that I can't remember the login info for and no longer have access to the emails (or even remember the emails) they're linked to.

I still visit GaiaOnline. I have a Gwee plushie from when they released RL merch, and a tshirt from when they did the Zurg plot back in 2006.

Anyone else remember the days of creating RP names for Yahoo!Chats and browsing the chats to find an RP to jump in on? I also RPed in AOL chats. I later wound up migrating to LiveJournal (and DeadJournal, and uJournal) for RPing.

I'm not imagining a blogging site called pita, right? Please tell me someone else had a pita.

No. 21515

Wow, yeah I've definitely experienced that. The anonymity of the internet combined with how easy it makes it to compartmentalize friendships and interactions really feeds right into that kind of gang mentality that can make it scary to reach out. The rise of call out culture has made it so much worse too…not to say there aren't valid reasons to call someone out but back when I used tumblr I'd run into multiple posts on my feed a week "calling out" someone as abusive for ignoring someone online, making fun of someone's Homestuck OC or drawing a "problematic" Steven Universe ship or some other banal shit.

No. 21516

i think being younger also has something to do with it. i was more willing to jump into conversation or a new rp, or pm someone on a forum that i wanted to rp with because i had a lack of self control and was a bold weirdo. some of those stuck though and thats how i found my friends.
now, as an adult, it seems a bit rude and pushy to try and do something like that. coupled with anxiety, i just never talk to anyone new.

Oh, man, did any of you anons use to play Boombang? It was very similar to Habbo, just way more cartoony. You had to pick a character from the ones in pic related and you could then change its colors. You could also make your own island and decorate it with all kinds of cool stuff. The official rooms were really great, too! Every character had its own set of animations you could use (crying, laughter, and you could also fart and spit for some reason lmao). It used to be very popular in Spain and South America, even having some ads on TV at some point!

God, I miss it SO much. It shut down a few years ago and it made me so sad when I found out. Apparently it was because it wasn't making enough money… It had so much potential though. I hope they bring it back eventually :(

IDK if anyone remembers it, but there used to be a site called sailormoon.com that you could sign up for an actual email on it and it had forums and a chatroom that I used to spend hours on. Pretty sure I talked to pedos on it, but it was a fun experience, although now the site and email no longer work.

I have a lot of fond memories of Gaia Online, but ohhhhh god it was an embarrassing time on there (my perception of relationships got fucked up on there and it was a hard lesson to learn for little me). I also remember Tektek.org and deeply wish that the Dream Avatar system hadn't been taken down because when Gaia implemented their own version it was never the same. Fond(er) memories of spending hours on it while listening to the Windows Music Player's Radio or watching sparse subbed anime on Youtube before copyright strikes were a big deal.

I also used Neopets early on, but I kept forgetting to take care of my Neopets… and MSN Messenger was a trip. Last I used it, it was through use of a browser. Stopped using it after personal drama outside of the nostalgic phase though.

I think the Palace was the first chatroom I ever laid eyes on. It was also what got my mom into the idea that any and all internet pages were danger zones. I was also a big fan of doll sites like >>21425 or Doll Palace in >>21352, every once in a while I still hit up TDP and play the games there. I remember saving outfits for my Yahoo avatar but never used the messenger much.

Disney sites were also my shit, but I'll be damned if I didn't spend a whole evening on that Kim Possible card game (pictured)

Millsberry was my JAM. I was so upset when I found out it had closed without me knowing. I never really got hardcore into neopets and club penguin because I just was never into taking care virtual animals, but creating a new person was the best part. It was an escape for me to create an alter ego. >>21422 is pretty much what my person looked like, but more goth. I was that kind of kid when I was 11.

I spy GirlSense (source of that game)! It was basically a better Stardoll where you could actually modify clothes instead of just decorating them, and the dolls were slightly uncanny valley but in a cute, 2000s way. I loved it because it was mostly free, whereas you have to pay out the wazoo for Stardoll.

It came out IMMEDIATELY after VMK closed trying to piggyback off of VMK's success but it was nowhere near as fun or aesthetically pleasing (pic related) and it glitched out a lot. There was also a lot of really strange things regarding the company who ran the game, they had member packs that kids could buy to be considered VIP in game that included irl items like a ~handcrafted boomerang carved by actual aboriginal australians~ and a "special" t shirt among other things but I don't ever remember people recieving them.

The whole game was a a ridiculous grindfest though, you could barely make it to level 20 before you hit the wall and it started to get even harder to actually proceed.

As a child I couldn't get enough of this stuff, even though sometimes I got so scared I had to stop browsing and went hiding into my bed too freaked out to do anything lmao
Later I was a poster on my countries' version of allmystery. It was a bizarre place, I remember messaging with a woman that claimed to be in contact with an egyptian goddess and a teenage boy that pretended to be an irl wizard. At one point admin had a breakdown when he was "possessed by a demon" or something. He shut down the whole board and admin would ban random users and post announcements that went like "the cards told me to ban X. Farewell X!". It was a wild ride.
I'm not sure what happened after that because I too got banned but it seems like it just went back to normal after some time. The forum still exists but is split into a million subforums that are mostly dead but there are still people posting. It seems frozen in time and the layout never changed.

How will we look at the "old internet" in a few centuries with only the most popular websites and our memories left to guess how it was back then? It's not like you can find good hints on google nowadays without going through 30+ pages of clickbait articles, spam websites and shops. I imagine it will become even worse in the future. With that, will it even be possible to accurately document the early internet years other than making broad statements? There is so many lost and the few remaining pieces are hard to find.

Oh wow. I haven’t thought about this for years. The original drag-and-drop website builder. Honestly, for as shit as that site was in practice, it was actually amazing in concept. Total creativity allowed.
I guess I’m slightly upset that nothing got saved, but not too upset. My websites were awful, cringy fan sites.

Pic related: Quizilla anyone? It was great until it got bought out and went to shit. Hours of my life spent on making and taking quizzes about everything, more than a few “rawr XD”s spotted. Also the trashy emo poetry and stories. I wish the sitemasters had maintained it better, since by the end it was so glitchy that we were all basically begging for it to die.

Real Question though, sound off: how many of us feel like we met/talked to pedos online as a kid? I assume it was a pretty common experience, especially reading through this thread.

I remember chatting with quite a few adults/older people (men and women) I met through "kids" websites like Neopets or Gaia. In retrospect those people shouldn't have been as interested in being friends to some dumb kid as they were, but I don't remember anyone ever asking me for pics or anything weird like that. I think I gained a pretty good instinct for creepiness pretty quickly (probably because we had so many "internet stranger danger" PSAs and shit).

(OT but I know "To Catch a Predator" became a dumb 4chan meme but I fucking loved that show and I have seen every episode. I remember thinking "I look young for my age, I could totally be one of those decoy girls in the house!" when I was younger lmao. Wish they'd bring shit like that back.)

I definitely did. I was into fandom chat rooms and messageboards and I made a few friends through those. One friend was a 30 year old guy, while I was 10-12 through our friendship. He'd constantly tell me how "mature" I was (I wasn't) and how I was an old soul and all the usual shit. Eventually he got mad at me and broke off our friendship when I said I didn't think child porn was OK lol.

No. 21610

Tons of times. When I was an elementary schooler I remember finding out that I got the most people talking to me on AIM chatrooms if I said I was 15-16 years old. Later on Gaia I remember 35 year olds who knew I was in middle school telling me explicit things they wanted to do to me and thinking it was normal until I got older and realized how horrific it was. As a teenager posting innocuous jfashion pictures of myself I had multiple adult men tell me they had folders of my pictures saved. It's actually horrible how many kids are growing up exposed to this type of stuff and often way worse than what I experienced. The DDLG shit that's now on Tumblr has probably exacerbated the problem tenfold by making teenage girls think that pedophilia is something cute and fun and sugar daddies are goalz. So in that aspect I guess I'm lucky my childhood back then was mostly just Neopets, things like that, and the worse environments that now exist came later.

Ephebophiles, definitely. When I was 16 I played WoW and got into a big raid guild where I was hit on by adult men in their 20's-30's. They knew I was 16 too. But I was super flattered by their attention because I was a dorky loser IRL who'd never had a boyfriend so I was super receptive to it. But it went way too far with the guild leader. He was 30-ish, and flirted with me a lot and eventually asked for my nudes, which I gave him because I was an idiot, and we even cammed on MSN with me topless and him jerking off.

Looking back I'm so thoroughly fucking disgusted with both myself and him and completely humiliated by the thought that underage nudes of me are out there.

No. 21616

If I did talk to someone masquerading as a fellow kid on websites like Neopets, then they did a damn good job hiding it because I never knew. Then again, I never really gave out my personal info on most kiddie websites like that anyway.

I did, however, fuck up royally in chatrooms. Like AIM chatrooms. In them I pretended to be older/more mature than I actually was for the validation and attention. I remember being freaked out the first time I 'cybered' with someone. I remember some of the first dick pics I ever received when I was like 14. As I got older, I bought a webcam and had a few relationships with a couple creeps but nothing too damaging by that point, because the one smart thing my parents did was not allow me a computer in my room nor a webcam until I was 17.

I think it all started because my childhood best friend got heavily involved with chatrooms and webcamming really young. We went from playing video games and pretending together during sleepovers to me just hanging out in the background bored because all she wanted to do was video chat with strangers she 'knew' online for hours. She wrote a lot about them in her journals and you'd think the relationships were as serious as irl ones. Plenty of them were older men relative to our age.
I remember being jealous of her because these men would give her all sorts of validation and attention because she was thin and 'ethnic,' to quote. They always told her she was mature for her age, smart for her age (even though she wasn't much booksmart), and above all–hot.
It made me really insecure and I wanted a dumb boy harem of my own, but didn't really have the means, and to be fair even if I had a webcam I would've still been hesitant anyway because I considered myself an ugly fat tomboy until I hit high school.

Maybe all the early exposure to sex didn't do me a lot of favors for all the irl trouble I got into with boys later on, but that's about it thankfully. Some farmers here have really fucked up stories about abusive pedos they met online that make me shudder.

Don't be too disgusted with yourself anon. These grown men know exactly what they're doing when they try to flatter and court someone 15 years their junior. They know most prepubescent and teenage girls are vulnerable for attention specifically because so many are awkward, lonely, and isolated. You may think it's partially your fault but it's really not, it's just elaborate manipulation where they preyed upon your insecurities.

there was a thread about this last year. i played runescape and i was a kid who didn't know any better so of course a lot of creepy men befriended me bc i was open about how i was a 13 y/o girl, then a 15 y/o girl, etc. have a lot of stories of creeps trying to ask me if i was horny/ever masturbated/wanted to cyber, etc. i always turned them down or just said no, but when i got a phone i became an attention seeking little thot for a few months, before deleting everything bc i realized how cringey and embarrassing it was to be seeking attention from neckbeards playing fucking runescape. luckily never did anything too regrettable though, never got involved with any. guys gave me a lot of gp though lol. how retarded is that? i would sit in clan chats and friend chats and give them my instagram name… i was 15 and wanted validation i guess? i cringe recalling the guys who would call me jailbait and "id tap that", thinking it was hot i was underaged, etc. i haven't told any people irl that i've done stuff like that bc it's so embarrassing and gross that i did that, even though it was only for a while and i learned to stop really quickly.

No. 21620

I talked to a lot of creepy dudes, in public chats and people I met in forums through AIM or online games. I never thought much about it except at some points were they would make me feel uncomfortable but I knew better than to give people my address or give them pics. The worst is when we would roleplay and they would get sexual and I would just go along because I didn't know what to do or I would just quit. The only good thing is that I never mantained any friendships or anything long with those people.

Thinking back it was disgusting but when you're young it doesn't seem that bad and you think you're mature enough to handle it. But the whole experience at least worries me enough that if I had a daughter I would definitely have a talk with her about using the internet.

Also I got to see something happening with an older woman and younger boy. There was a woman who was in her late 20's early 30's in the Anime community I frequented (this was early 2000's) and who I was friends with and talked regularly when I was a kid (she was semi popular, had a webpage and even did fics) and she was in a relationship with a 13-14 year old boy. I recall how she would tell me that she kept things platonic with him (not sure how true that was) and that she would wait till he was 18 to meet him. I was like 10 and knew an older person with a younger person wasn't acceptable but I stupidly thought it was romantic that they would wait for each other. I also rarely talked with the guy, and mostly knew about him through her.

Thinking about it again it's super creepy and weird especially now that I'm nearing the age she was at that point, teens are like babies to me and they're usually not that interesting to talk to so I can't see what the hell was going through her mind.

Depends on your definition. There are definitely memes of dances floating out there anon, but let's face it. They're no longer in the scope of our interests so we don't take notice of them.

I disagree, just because you got lucky and didn't actually meet any escalation doesn't make an adult sending kids gold and calling them mature any less of a grooming behavior.

Hope you guys don't mind the bump, but I was enjoying this thread and wanted to join in. I think my first internet exposure was in the mid 90's through a couple of chat rooms at a friends house. I got my own computer around 98 or so and would go to AOL messageboards and chatrooms sometimes. After that, once I got into high school, I really started getting into music, especially metal music, so my interests shifted towards band sites and forums for bands. I remember the Ozzy/Ozzfest messageboards were hosted by Sony on the same page as all their other band messageboards, so you could use a dropdown menu and raid other boards, which people periodically did.

Then I found the Metal Sludge site, and read all through it and hung out on it's messageboard for years. It tended to be a bit too hair metal oriented for my taste, but people there would get in some pretty funny flamewars, and there were some pretty good troll personas there, that existed just to give people hell.

I remember the next places I congregated were Something Awful, when it was still actually relevant, and the Relapse Records official messageboard. I used to browse the site for bands and merch, and the forum too. The forum was pretty fun because it's something a record label would probably never allow today, even a smaller one. It was basically 4chan before 4chan combined with Something Awful type photoshops. People had resident shitposting punchingbags they'd photoshop the hell out of, talk about all sorts of weird bands, dumb Sucide Girls types who would try to shill their nudes there, which usually was met with people scrollbombing their threads with scatporn, arguments over veganism and political crap, raiding other messageboards. Basically all of the proto-4chan shit.

Then I found 4chan either in 2006 or 2007 because some knucklehead tried to hotlink a gif from 4chan, and all you got was the 4chan.org gif. So I was curious, checked it out, and sadly, have been there since. Boy, sometimes I sure do miss the goofy days of Epic Fail Guy.

MSN Messenger was such a versatile little thing. It was probably the first messenger that allowed you to really customize your space with a pretty sizable avatar, name, emoticons, a status message and even your own font. We used to have group discussions and each one of us would use a different color font so the discussions were much easier to follow. The drawing feature was my absolute favourite, and fucking with my friends by playing the sounds you could upload was hilarious. I really, really miss the custom emoticon feature, thank god it's included with Slack.

It was a sad day when Messenger finally went down and took a lot of great features down with it. Skype was a piece of shit from day one.

YUP. I still remember his name too. His name was Bill. and he would ALWAYS and I do mean ALWAYS start the conversation off as "Hey anon it's bill from scottland! How are you?". He was fucking creepy as shit. Couldn't tell ya where we met but we talked on MSN messenger. He was… 40-ish I think. His icon was his face or someones face I suppose. We never webcammed but he would give me pictures of his dick (even though I repeatedly told him not to) or he would get overly sexual for no reason and usually when he got that way I would just stop replying and he would be like " :( anon where'd you go!" and I would tell him he's making me uncomfortable and he would say sorry and go back to normal. He was WEIRD as shit and I wouldn't be surprised if he was arrested or something irl. I finally blocked him because he was telling me about how hard his dick was or some shit. But I feel like if I had my own computer at the time (this computer was in the living room so everyone could actually use it) I probably wouldn't have blocked him. I think I was just scared my mom was going to find out. I think maybe a year ago I went through my old emails (I still use the same email all these years later) and saw an email from him and I googled the email to see if anything came up and it didn't.

It was just a regular facebook just with cde people on it instead of irl friends etc. People basically made ones to talk shit about other people.

I was way too lazy to actually make a new facebook so I just used my cde fb as my personal one now lol obviously with my avatars deleted and irl friends added etc.
>>admin drama
The best artist/admin got booted because he drew hentai and I'm sad to say that I was one of the people shaming him for it. Honestly looking back his shit wasn't even that bad and whatever he did on his own time was his own business its not like it was lolicon or anything. After they fired him the quality and creativity of the items went ALLLL the way down and I feel like I helped make that happen.

Use giant dildo smasher!" and it would roll a random damage result.

Also it was SUCH cancer when you had one person who had emotes that replaced letters, I couldn’t read anything from them when every H was placed by some dancing, flaming hot .gif. And the games! MSN had built in minigames that weren’t very good. But knowing Microsoft I wonder if they were harvesting our data or if it was the thing they put effort into that wasn’t some kind of spyware.

ThePalace had so many autistic little cliques. There were the Preps (12 year old girls playing Barbies on the internet), the goths (edgy 12 year old girls who shat on the preps), the juggalos, the weeaboos, the furries who larped as animals, little boys who larped as super saiyans, normal adults who were there just to chat.. it was a lot like a pixel version of Second Life.

ThePalace was poorly monitored, so even though there were moderators kids got exposed to all sorts of gross stuff. Swearing was allowed, goths would create gore avatars about killing preps, horny middle aged men would make avatars with giant dicks leaking cum or slutty naked ladies. I got linked to meatspin and goatse there back in the day, and I remember little girls using nearly naked avatars created by the horny guys thinking they were just fashionable. There were rooms for people to advertise their Palaces but they were the online equivalent of the walls of public bathroom stalls, they were always full of poop, gore or other offensive stuff. The moderators couldn't verify who dropped what where, so no one got punished.

It was so damn easy to troll people there. Usernames weren't registered so you could steal people's usernames while they were away and do things like break up with their e-girlfriend or convince everyone they had a gross fetish. There was a lot of ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NUT STEEL going on with avatars since they were all player made and easy to edit, so it was always a hoot to steal people's creations with print screen or custom programs and watch them panic. Some programs let you drop props invisibly so you could go to a peaceful room, drop swastikas everywhere and watch the room's owner kick out everyone one by one as he tried to figure out who was the spammer.

Same! Somewhere in the depths of my old hard drives is a plethora of saved and made 100x100 icons. I remember teaching myself how to make them thanks to LJ tutorials, Photoshop and a free gif program (giphy?).

Even though I wasn't social I loved playing MapleStory. My ex and I would play it together and the aesthetic was just so damn cute! I tried going back to it a few times (and gave MS2 a go) but it just seems like a pay-to-win environment now.

I miss the customization social media used to have. MySpace was exactly that… MY space. Facebook feels too corporate and boring. Even msn messenger had cool customization like uploading images for your own chat background. Uploading your own emojis or animated mini avatars used as an emoji. For awhile I liked tumblr because it brought back that customized personal feel but then the site turned to shit lmao. I learned a lot about html back which was fun. Even YouTube used to let you have your own personal background on your channel and the comment section was popular on your profile. Every mainstream platform is so bland now and it’s depressing.

God, the like “MS Paint Pets” websites were such a weird part of internet history. I was a huge Neopets kid but I remember seeing some of these other ones floating around. I remember like….a horse one? Not like magical animals or anything just literally you had internet horses and did horse related tasks on the website. I wanna say like….horseland or something? Anyone know what I'm talking about? (My rich best friend growing up was a real horse girl, I was too broke for that so I just tried to be an internet horse girl)

Did anyone ever get into Subeta? As someone who had been through Gaia and Neopets phases already, it seems like an ok averaging of the two. I got a little into it in high school because my 30 something year old manager at Game Stop was a furry and obsessed with it and I thought if I played she'd like me more (aka give me more hours). Ngl though, after years of Neopets I did find their pet designs/colors kind of refreshing. The avatars were pretty comparable to Gaia too I'd say.

They weren't aesthetically pleasing at all (literally a brown circle on a ranch map) and unless you paid for a membership you couldn't afford more than one horse. Anyway, at some point in stallet.se history they introduced roleplay, gave it its own page and gave people the ability to create roleplays for people to join etc. Then shit kinda went down because creeps came out of the woodwork and started cybering with the kids, me included.

I played Neopets to start with, but I played a lot of Marapets. It was more "cozy" than Neopets and though they had some obvious knock off designs from Neopets and had an option to buy things with real money I preferred it. It seemed to have more customization. They also had the option to dress up your own character avatar.

Reading this whole thread was really something! I got into Neopets in elementary school, and it was alright. lost interest though.

but on the side, there was a Neopets knockoff made by, supposedly, a teen boy (but people lie, so who knows, coulda been like 25). I had some fun on not neopets, and i went to some forum about these sorts of things. someone bashed on not neopets, and then the "teen boy" "creator" came along to say he totally didn't care about what was being said against him and his site.

so there was some weird dumb drama, but fun story writing and just goofin off.

side note, on neopets i pretended to be a boy, when someone asked if i was a boy and i told them no, they left. guess it was a pedo into boys and not girls haha. never got groomed or creeped on.

okay this is something several people know, but no one talks about as much as they should. fake users on the internet. idiotic youtube comments and almost 90% of the activity on reddit, and activity on imgur, comes from fake users.

they sign NDA'a, they're required to be logged on for their whole shift, they're not allowed to leave the website until their shift is over, and they have a shitposting quota. those redditors who argue with themselves but forget to switch accounts? those are paid fake users.

you can tell by looking at their posting history and retarded comment chains. they go for the huge subs, not the obscure ones. this is why you're not allowed to criticize retards online, because almost everyone on these sites is a retarded fake user.

i have fantastic memories of LJ, but even a big chunk of that userbase was fake, even before the bots came in.

person said that the way info on old websites and old internet is gone, paves the way for the rewriting of history… spot on.

imgur is full of retarded generated memes, for forum sliding. reddit is full of political shit for forum sliding. and the shills are there to make it all unusable, unreadable, and to harass any real users off the site.

today companies don't want real people using the sites. used to be different in the past. but that's changed now.

nostalgia serves a purpose.

I loved Stardoll with all my heart when I was around 9~10. Played it so much that my parents even bought me the Superstar membership as a gift sometimes and I was extremely happy.
I loved that you could kinda paint the makeup on your avatar, mixing colors and stuff. It also kinda gave me the beginning of a fashion sense lol (I also remember that Sephora didn’t exist in my country at the time and I thought it was a store from the game, not a real one). I felt like I could express myself a lot through my avatar’s outfits.
I made a lot of friends there through the “clubs” you could create and participate in, they worked kinda like forums. I remember when the “party” feat was released and I was super hyped for it. Little me felt super social going at them. Also, even though my english wasn’t very good at the time, no one was rude to me there. Good times.

Does anyone remember Freewebs? Anyone could create a basic free website. I don't know if it's still around but me and my friends in 5th grade created a Warrior Cats fan site and posted about our OCs and rped on the guestbook because either they didn't have forums or we didn't know how to set one up. Another mutual classmate found our freewebs site and posted profanity and slander about a teacher and that's how our entire grade got a lecture on cyber bullying.

I also posted a terrible fantasy story on my own site but only got 6 chapters in before deleting it all.

As for Neopets, I would frequent the writing forums a bit. I found a forum on another site that had regulars from there and I forget what I did, but the entire forum hazed me for making a small mistake (it was a smallish forum so maybe they did it to any newbie) and spammed about me being a creep/pedo. I was 12 at the time. Never went back to that one again. The art forums were also fun, I would take requests sometimes to draw mediocre art of other player's pets. Most of the art I did when I was younger was anthro art, mainly because I wanted to draw my neopets.

The kinda sad thing is that a lot of the site seems pretty dead, as you said… not only the community but actual stuff like the hairstyles for your avatar, for example, still are exactly the same since always…

Randomly remembered oceanUP which I used to browse back in the day reading about teen celebrities and shit and decided to look it upand found out it got ubruptly replaced by some site about tech and gadgets.

It's weird since the site was archived up to August but hadn't updated since June.Then there are a few archives at the end of the year showing the new content.It doesn't look like it was maintained and updated well lately and probably they decided to give it up yet there was nothing about them "saying goodbye" like may other sites have over the years

There are people who just heard about this? I thought it was common knowledge that when Neopets received funding from one of the investors he wanted to add Scientology-inspired content to the website to indoctrinate kids into the religion. The original creators (named Donna and Adam iirc?) fought pretty hard against this and managed to cancel some really shady terms. One of them had a Q&A session on Reddit some years ago and talked about this when someone brought up the scientology rumor. The article you linked seems to explain this in detail but yeah it's true to an extent. They didn't "run" the company per se, but Neopets had investors and stakeholders who were really into Scientology and wanted to push it. It didn't really show on the website though.

I spent so much time on the old yahoo answers when I was like 12 or 13. I even got a badge, I forgot what they were called, but it was basically to show that you’re an expert in that field because you got a lot of best answers. I hanged out at the baby names, pets - other, and horoscope section. There were many other regulars in some of them who I loved seeing.

I used to go on a site that was similar to Yahoo Answers, except it was in my native language. Most people there were young, and the quality of the questions/answers was what you would expect.

did any of you guys see that website that people would advertise their UFA pets to whoever made the best application? you basically edited the page of one of your pets and turned it into an adoption application where you would have to impress the owner enough for them to choose you. Some people would do a page with amazing digital art, a whole bio and backstory, and amazing layout for the page. I didn't know how to do any of that so i never got any that i wanted. I remember once taking a photo of my bad pencil drawing for an application but i knew i wasn't going to stand a chance.

Neopets flunked after they converted all of the pets into the same ass boring design no matter what they wore or how they were painted. in the UC design, each paint completely transformed them, and their expressions were very different, the new ones only slightly changed their facial expression. They should have just found other ways to make money besides shooting themselves in the foot.

It was such a huge part of my life back then but I barely remember the mechanics of the game. I only remember that you had your camel farm and your camels, you had to feed them or they'd die and the currency was dates. Oh, and you could open caravans and write newsletter to the members (which we made a huge deal of, of course).
We were obsessed and even got into fights and drama about it. Wild times.

There’s a group called Flash Game Archive that’s trying to preserve them. You can go to their website and search to see if they have a particular game yet.

I loved that level of interaction for stuff like that. I'm not really sure what the fall of Webkinz was, it was crazy successful in the mid 2000s to the point where all I asked for Christmas or birthdays were webkinz and had like 20+ of them. I logged in a few years ago (still remembered my username somehow) and everything's different, now there's a lot more stuff you have unlock through extra paid memberships. I also think they purged a lot of accounts if they haven't added new pets in a recent amount of time.

Yahoo also had an avatar creation service, pretty much a glorified dress up game. I would spend so much time constantly trying to make my avi the baddest bitch. I would dramatically change it at least once a week and girls would always praise each other on their cute avatars and give each other style tips.

Every little step was accompanied with a cute animation. I spent hours upon hours trying to figure out the correct sequence as a kid

Oh my god anon I used to play furcadia too! I was a really young kid when I started playing, I would make my own dreams and I just spent hours learning the dragonspeak coding and messing in the dream editor so that you could be different feral animals in my dream lmfao.
I remember there was some kind of help system where some moderator would help you if you were stuck with coding? That was pretty cool.
Unfortunately though, as a kid I went on the 18+ dreams too, just out of curiosity, and I found yiffy high school which baffled and slightly traumatized me. That was pretty much like my first exposure to sexual content. In hindsight its kind of horrific how easy it was to access sexual content as a really young kid. Like yeah there were warnings but when you're a kid playing a colorful animal game you don't really expect that kind of stuff I guess?
Anyways the normal dreams were very fun, I remember some kind of wolf/dog adoption center that had all these minigames, that was p cool.

I do, and I miss the old anime fan pages in general. WMV format short clips, downloadable midis and shit bitrate MP3s that took forever to download. Badly photoshopped desktop wallpapers, gifs and all that. My favourite was always the fan art section. Back then DA was a mess to navigate and not that popular yet so your best resource for art was all the popular fan websites. Most of them were kindergarten skill level and traced from official art but whenever I saw an actually talented artist it made me gasp in awe. I still remember a lot of those fan arts from those times and how they amazed me, nowadays everyone rushes to crank out billions of pieces to get the sweet social media clout and is able to share it at a much faster pace so fan art has become disposable. You see it and then forget about it.

That crisp oekaki-esque art style with old video game type aesthetics will forever be my jam. It's so nostalgic and I never managed to master it in my teens. I was endlessly jealous of people who could pull such clean lines with a 1px pencil brush.

Honestly, all the games on barbie.com, myscene.com and the polly pocket website were bomb. I remember there was some sort of function on the barbie website where you could customize and play music on a virtual ipod.

Speaking of, does anyone remember AOL girl's games? There was one with a pretty big user base, and in it you basically ran your own fashion boutique that other people could visit and buy clothes from, and you could design your own clothes and storefront. I sadly don't remember what it was called, but it was so fun, and when AOL announced they were shutting it down people went crazy. I really wish I could remember the name.
I was so upset too, beca ut se I had just figured out how to use one of the design tools to shade my clothes and was convinced I would become one of the top players in the fashion world.

Yes! I hate that it has a reputation for being "shitty club penguin" because I honestly think it had better artwork. Like the furniture items literally adjusted size to fit the perspective in the treehouses, and they let you have dragons as pets. I like that there were games you could play without leaving the room, like fishing and scavenger hunts. It felt sort of like a hybrid of Animal Crossing and Club Penguin. For some reason I have vivid memories of the music in the dance club and the music in the clothing shop.

Agreed. Artists definitely overdo it these days. Attached is another example from the same artist; the eyes are drawn very differently from Sasuke above but the stylization is still pretty cool.

Anon I used to be crazy about Ragnarok Online in the 00's, I'm so sad the game's pretty much dead sans some old players who find the game nostalgic. But it still gets new content released all the time almost 20 years later so it's astounding how well it's stood against the test of time. I still love the OST and listening to it brings a lot of good, warm memories back. I met so many friends (some of them are still around!) through this game, it forced you to socialize quite a bit to actually advance.

I used to play Priest a lot too, but mostly mained Sniper for DPS. I was so addicted to playing it that I ended up getting amazing gear that annihilated pretty much anything on my way. I should really pick this game up again someday. I hope it continues on to live on for another two decades.

I'm low-key ashamed to most this but I remember when I was younger I would go to this website that had games, sorta like girls go games ,but the games were weirdly sexual but not pornographic. I think it was trying to attract kids. Most of the games had a cartoony 2D art style and ,in hindsight, seem elsagate-esque. I remember a game where the objective was to ruin a girl's time at a party by interacting with things, like a point-and-click adventure game, but 'ruining her day' included finding ways to expose her, like having water fall on her so her clothes would be see-through

Another game was about taking photos of women in their underwear with your camera. One level was at the beach, another level was at a mall. I remember at the mall there was a merry-go-round and a girl would get her underwear would get exposed as she would ride it. There was a woman on a trampoline who would get exposed whilst jumping and a son tugging at his mom's skirt to get her attention, which pulled her skirt down, which she promptly pulled up

I also had a papa's cupcakeria. The games probably don't work anymore because flash died. At the time, I didn't know that it was sexual or weird cuz I was a kid

Papa's [x]-eria is just a series of games where you own a type of restaurant (pizza, burger, cupcake, etc) and have to fulfill orders on time. I remember in middle school me and my friend would ask to "go to the computer lab to work on our assignments" everyday and play these games for the entire hour kek.

Don't feel too weird about it lots of people grew up playing fucked up things on Newgrounds just because they found it. You just unearthed a deep memory of a Japanese site I used to frequent that was filled with lolicon flash games that weren't quite pornographic but I still knew I shouldn't show my parents so I memorised part of the URL instead of bookmarking it because I wanted to play all the games. Give kids anything interactive and brightly coloured and they will want to play with it.

This is a really specific memory but do any former DeviantArt anons remember the kawaii artists community in the early 2010s?

It was full of drama over the same copying allegations only because all their art styles were essentially the same. They also always had the same weeby usernames and it just felt as if they were skinwalking each other. Big names back then were Punipunipon (who was later chased away for tracing her art), Lolihime-sama/Hinausa and Melodeiia.

KEK I had no idea she's still active on Twitter seemingly the same person as she was so many years ago in the past.

She was mostly accused of tracing and copying in her artwork yet would make a huge fuss if anyone had the smallest signs of copying hers, faked an ED, was frequently passive aggressive instead of handling things like an adult, and aired dirty laundry in public journals whenever she had a falling out with friends. She overall had an overly confident, conscending bitchy vibe to her that made each drama saga she started so entertaining to watch.

Anon this is actually a Hungarian online game, that is still alive and well in Hungary, making millions of revenue in a year. It's called Teve Club (meaning Camel Club). It's not that popular now, but it used to be pretty big here, there was even a monthly magazine of it (I have one of it somewhere). I played it, but got bored of it pretty quickly, so my camels died like flies. It was also heavily monetized, so there wasn't anyting fun to do without spending money.

Has anyone noticed how much has disappeared from the internet? Even a lot of stuff from only a decade to 15 years ago has been lost. One of my favourite things from the old(er) internet were personal blogs, and I used to follow a lot of fashion/lifestyle blogs. In the late 00s/early 10s it was a thing for girls on those blogs to make "style books", collages in a notebook made from pictures you selected and cut by hand from fashion magazines that despicted your personal style. All those blogs and pictures of those collages have nearly completely disappeared without a trace, can't find anything when googling it. Same thing with old pixel dollz and pixel adoption websites and msn groups, almost all gone.

But most of all I just miss personal blogs from the late 00s and early 10s. Blogs about fashion and beauty and photography, you know shitty tumblr-tier pictures girls took of their outfits and posted it online with some bits about their day. I miss that era so much.

I was a very prolific poster in the clubs on Stardoll. Animal-Lovers and FashionClub, and then the clubs we migrated to after the admin put their foot down. Every day I got home from school and logged into Stardoll. Page 1 of the discussion board always had topics listed as "active 1 minute ago". I was a little shit stirrer but so were many of the other girls. There were a few moids but they were gay. I don't think any of us really thought about the fact that anyone could read our posts, and there were hundreds of lurkers. We all shared information about our lives and many of us shared photos of ourselves, and went on cam in tinychat. Still, no scrotes ever bothered us and we were left to our own devices. I remember a thing I would play sometimes called "girlisland" or something, it was a website where you could make a very basic avatar and walk around a forested map and chat.

Does anyone remember the Japanese game where you had to score a harem of boys by shooting lasers at them? I was fucking UNRIVALLED at that lmao
