Geocities Returns!
« on: June 24, 2011, 07:02:05 AM »
Not really, but if you have a perverse desire to see what your favourite site would look like "designed by a 13 year-old in 1996"

 :P
If you don't see how it can fail -
you haven't understood it properly.

BWAHAHAHAHAA~!

That was hilarious~! :)

I love the "This site made with Notepad. The right way" button. Jeez... What can we puke on a page?

I think that's why MySpace is dying a slow death.

Well...you can never have too many half-naked elf warrior-maiden animations on your website AFAIC. I personally welcome their return and hope they catch on once again.   ;D

Wow. I don't remember seeing anything like this for a while. Very Myspace esque. Can't say that it is a shame that the site is disappearing though!!

Took three times before I got the half-naked elf warrior-maiden animations :P

Talk about gouging your eyes out, the first one was the dancing baby with neon yellow, and the second one was devil-bill on a PC-chip green background and stabbing pain inducing neon green & white foreground.  Guess it was like the pokimon craze of the same time - got to see them all (drive you blind, but stilllll.......).

I just hope I never see these three again on any website:

animated-gifs-question-marks-05.gif  animated-gifs-under-construction-234.gif  image.gif

There was a time when it seemed like every third page had one or more of these on it.  :-\

I especially hated that skull!  >:(

My eyes, the goggles do nothing!

And yet with Facebook, so many are allowing a corporation to filter and censor their internet experience.

The yellow and red color combo was pretty horrid, but then the addition of Comic Sans just made it so much worse. The music adds a nice touch as well.

.....

Spoiler
I used to make websites like these back when I was in 7th/8th grade. Tech class required you to maintain an intranet website to (theoretically) keep you from gaming/other slacking off after doing the day's work. Man, was I fond of animated images. And the buttons that changed color when you rolled over them with the mouse... and the music. I had that too, ambient music for the home page. I even had a "made with notepad" button almost exactly like that, because I was the only one in the class to mess with the raw HTML (outside of Frontpage 03).

And you all thought that website authoring style died in the 90s. HA! It lives on (until 2006/2007, at least)!

I am ready for my beating now :P
