Sal's Nostalgia

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It's been quite a while since I last made a topic here... 

I recently found this screenshot taken 19th October 2006 and it made me wonder what everyone else might have lying around...

This is the only picture I have relevant to Old School Sals.  2005 Christmas party.

Haven't seen that internet browser layout in a long time!  I don't have anything though, the computer I'm on is only 4 years old and I didn't save any old pictures

Don't you also have the old site banner too?

I am actually fairly sure I can (barely) see me on that picture of yours, Sobend. :blink:


Most of my oldest pictures were made from Imageshack links that are now old dead, so unless I do a search of old equipment, I will not find any of those. I did, however, find this:

@Yuanrang What's that? :huh:

Quite some time ago, Morte made a topic in the DM sub-forum so people could sign their names on the "wall" when they were promoted to Distinguished Member. This was one of the earliest "walls", I believe.

It made me think of a lot of people on that list that is now long gone, and then I began to think about everyone else I have crossed paths with and would have loved to catch up with, one last time. Friends, acquaintances... even those I fear might not be among us anymore, but has passed on.

I dunno, just finding that made me quite nostalgic, and made me remember well over a hundred names, and made me want to chat with them again, and see how people ended up. :ice:

It feels strange to see how most of those names hardly make it into the last century. In some ways it feels so long ago but so recent too. 

The idea of adding something on to what others have made reminds me of the graphic worms, or the extremely niche RS faking community we used to have. It's so sad to think that a lot of other stuff has been lost forever as Imageshack/Photobucket and whatever else people used to use slowly recycles URLs. It's a shame sites like Wayback machine can only save so much.

Yeah, I checked that thread, and I got hit by a couple of heavy waves of nostalgia. I would have started a similar picture collab thread here for anyone dropping by, but it will not work due to the sheer amount of people dropping by, and the fact that people just do not adhere to size equality.

...that said, man, it is times like this when you remember how damn old you have become compared to the very beginning. :xd:

Holy crap, Ambo100, I remember you! Weren't you in the Omega Faking Group all those years ago? Wow.

I basically get nostalgic for this forum every time I think about it. Funny how Reddit has basically supplanted all other internet forums. This site is really a relic of another time.

I definitely have some screenshots somewhere. I will try and dig them up.

Indeed! I still have most of my fakes saved, most of that stuffed is long gone.

Yeah, Reddit and social media in general, that and all fansites being outdone by Wikia. (It's very hard to compete with those).

Sad to think of all those niche messaging boards that are slowly fading from existence.

I think if you tried that now it wouldn't be such a problem. Hardly many people visit and I suppose it could size could be limited in a grid or something. :slanty:

Also this bit of ancient history

Special pip for people who "retired" from Runescape.  They got rid of it in the new forum because it was silly :p

There is still a chance for the forum to be alive again? Is it happening in waves or is the forum just dead? :(

forums in general are dying tech

social media and reditt have taken over

and runescape isn't that big anymore either

 

but the forums are here still, and no one has won the 'last person to post wins' topic just yet...

That image isn't loading for me. But I think I still have a good amount saved, though not sure about the Omega ones specifically. Maybe I will go through soon and do a photodump here.

Strange, I could have sworn it was working when I posted it, it isn't working for me either. I'll use Imgur.
