Title: The forums in 2010
Post by: Dav999 on September 30, 2012, 08:47:13 AM
Did you know that you can still access part of the forum like it was in 2010? :vitellary: It's not everything, but I notice that a lot has changed since then. The theme was different, there were only three boards, signatures were still allowed, some people had different avatars, and Terry had less than 100 posts!

It was very interesting to see! Specially the stats. They were very different than today's stats. Top poster (Terry) had only 95 posts. The one with most online (which was Terry again) had 8 days online (that a lot but very little compared to 123 days, which he has now).
It can only see between 3 Feb. 2010 and 5 Feb. 2010, though :victoria:. I wanted to see other dates...  It doesn't load every page either... :-\ ...

Why did you want to hide that? I thought that post was just the quote, like you sometimes post! :D I also wonder that... was that really the forum back in Feb. 2010? :-\

Yes, it was. The blog even goes back to 2004 (http://web.archive.org/web/20041118230434/http://www.distractionware.com/)!!! :vitellary: Some sites even go back to 1996! :vitellary: :vitellary: :vitellary:

I figured out that if you omit 'index.php' from the address, you can access two other dates, 6 Febuary 2010 and 24 September 2010! (http://web.archive.org/web/20100924140730/http://distractionware.com/forum/)
