So, what are some of your favorite memories of the old internet? Can be websites, memes, events or any other aspect of the days of Web 1.0 and 1.5 For a quick reference, here's what I would define as Web 1.0 and Web 1.5

:Crash1:Web 1.0: Usenet, Geocities and Angelfire, AOL (1991-2001)

:KongDance:Web 1.5: Early YouTube, ED, 4chan in its "wild west" days, MySpace, YTMND, Newgrounds and the peak years of dA and Fanfiction.net (2001-2008)


You also had cross-generation stuff like GameFAQs and IMDB which are still around today, although sadly IMDB's infamous message boards are gone

Looking for sprite sheets from Gameboy Advance games and older and stumbling upon old Geocities/Angelfire sites with gifs and pixel art.
The site of my album was actually inspired by those web 1.0 sites lol

初期のネットについて多くのことを覚えています。あなたのチューブが来る前に、ビデオロボットとして知られているビデオホスティングサイトがありました。日本ではここにしかなかったかもしれませんが、今日はもう利用できないビデオをたくさん見たのを覚えています。

当時のビデオは規制が緩和されていただけでなく、バッファ速度が遅いために短くする必要がありました。その結果、何百ものビデオのシリーズがあり、かなり混乱しました。これらのビデオの多くは非常に実験的で前衛的でした。当時のスクリーンショットを撮ることができたここのこれは、冷凍庫のトカゲのものでした。ぐるぐる回って、ペットなのか食べ物なのか気になりました。そのようなクレイジーなもの

I'm a big fan of the tileable backgrounds that were so common on Geocities/Angelfire sites (as well as for desktop wallpapers). Here's a sample of my collection I've accrued through the oocities archive.
