What was the history of this community?

So it occurred to me the other day that most of the crap I spewed onto the internet circa the year 2000 is now irretrievably lost, and I wondered what I could actually piece back together if I tried - like a terrible, pointless hybrid of The Hangover and Boyhood.

One of the things I randomly remember is being involved in the GTA community, probably mostly around GTA2, circa 2000 and 2001 I guess.

I remember Gouranga and I remember Iceyboard, although possibly that replaced something else before it - did it? I don't remember what I was called, but I remember some of the names here & arguing with Fordy.

The Wayback Machine's not a lot of use but I don't know exactly where it would have been anyway.

Does any of it still exist?

As far as I know, other than maybe Azz's site, most of it's lost. Iceyboard was throwing errors left and right so eventually Azz had to get rid of it in favour of something easier to manage. Most of the old members have left as well, though few are still around like Maindrain and Touge.

The idea was that he was supposed to bring over archived posts, but I think whatever broke the old board's archiving/search stuff migrated over here, too.

Re: What was the history of this community?

I thought the old posts came over fine? I'll be honest I've not looked though wink

This forum dates back to, erm, late 90's sometime when Schu and I decided to set up somewhere for rambling. But yeah most people have long since buggered off, and to be honest I leave it here more as a tribute to what was rather than out of expectation of any communication.

Re: What was the history of this community?

I consider a lot of people on this board whom I've never actually met my friends, so there's that.

Don't spoil our evil plans to become the community with the lowest number of posts ever!
