Did you have a Geocities/Angelfire/etc. website back in the day? How terrible was it?

Mine was an unholy hybrid of "HORSE ROLEPLAYING" and "THE ULTIMATE DRAGON BALL Z PAGE" (complete with like... an amazing and astounding seven screenshots or something.)

Yep! I had a Geocities site, and Angelfire site! Back in the days! Don't know whatever happened to them, but I'm sure they are long gone because Geocities disappeared from the face of the Internet not too long ago. I had a Pokemon Adoption Center type site going. xD

I had one that served as a Neopets cheat/tips site for my guild.

Gahd I was a dork. :cool:

Yeah I had both, I used angelfire to host images and I used geocities to build a website, mostly to showcase my avie/sig creating skills at the time ;), and I also had a splash page, personal bio, favorite links page, and a direct link to my proboard forum, on the website too, lol. Good times :)

I think I used angelfire music links for music on my xanga page. :monster:

I had a Grace Jones site, but that must have been close to ten years ago. Haven't listened to GJ in two years now. :redface:

I set up a blogger on geocities and used it to host some images, but never really developed a site. my free site days were wasted at TalkCity, which dissapeared utterly in 2000 :(

Yeah, I had a Geocities when I took a basic HTML/CSS class in high school. It was fun!

I had a couple that I never really found time to update. I drew comic strips and scanned them or whipped up something on MS Paint. Some of them were mildly amusing, in retrospect. Kishi really liked them to the point where he drew fan art based on one of them (the comic had an executioner slicing off the arm of a dancer. Then another dancer comes in and says, "DAAAAAMN!! YOU GOT SEVERED!!!"). Since he can actually draw, his fan art blew mine away. I still loved it.

A month or so back, I actually asked for help to retrieve those comics. I managed to dig up archived ones from one site, but not the other one (that had the "severed" comic) which I felt had better material. There is a small chance I may have them somewhere on my old computer, I just got to look again. Doubt it, though.

My first web page had this color background, and it was just a Sailor Moon SuperS jpeg with a MIDI of the theme song playing.

I made this (http://www.necronopticous.com/sgng) a couple weeks ago.

This is amazing.

my page was chrono trigger meets dbz xD

I had a pretty big Dragon Warrior website similar to EOFF and I also used to the space to store random files that weren't on the internet. It's all gone now.

Very well done. Never thought a Geocities style website would bring me nostalgia.

I'm sure I tried to make one but, when you're young, stoned and impatient these things don't usually work out.

I wasn't even cool enough for geocities. I had a Homestead site. My hosting was free with my 56k Juno internet access. I believe it was a horrible homage to my 12 year old self and my three friends inline skating crew. Oh nineties...

Looks like I'm the only person to miss the Geocities thang :monster:

I don't believe you! Lies I say! Lies!
