Title: Kataang Forever
Post by: lilithxchan on December 03, 2017, 02:16:02 AM
Now i'm not one to live in the past, at all. But I do take trips back every now and then, and with the handy tool called the Wayback machine on the internet, you can too! Tonight i decided to see if it had recorded anything off the old Message Board. And low and behold it has... like a lot surprisingly. You can go see old topics, see who was posting and when. It's pretty nuts.

BUT! As a Special treat, here is the oldest image of the Kataang Forever message board, all the way back in 2009.

It's crazy what's changed... Like did you know that Av used to be called Avalon Airbender? I mean I'm sure lots of you knew, but I didn't. That's neat

If I may, my old username was Avatar_Man. Avalon and I are unrelated. xD

In other news, I spent like half an hour on that website and seeing all of the old banners made me feel things I wasn’t prepared for.

I need to look at this when I'm home; my work computer doesn't like this very much.  But wow--I didn't know anything like this existed.  This is incredible.

Yeah, it's weird man, if you click on things from certain parts of the site, it seems to take you to different versions of the same things. Like whatever is associated with it at the time something was posted/last updated?

Like I'm on peoples profiles and I have icons I don't even remember making/having. I even found this little cutie:

Let's make a KF drinking game. We already have one for a KF Crisis created by Snows but this is for your average time on the forums. Let's keep this to humorous/positive stuff.

Every time I get someone's gender wrong
Every time the family tree gets to be more of a confusion (do this at your own risk)
Every ancient thread resurrected by MargotTennanbaum
Every time EpicmusPrime makes an anti-Katara thread
Every pun Wherewulf makes
Every MLP graphic you see
Every time I greet a newbie in my usual way
Every time a shipping discussion goes without some kind of belligerence"

I have PTSD from those MLP graphics.

Didn't MargotTennanbaum also start all those anti-Korra threads?

I believe so.

I have definitely gone to the way back machine. I've also gone through the threads I had Casey send me that I still have saved away (I wish I had requested more!).

The nostalgic feels, man, they are intense. We should keep this reminscent thread going!

I've switched computers a couple of times since then, So I lost all the threads I got from Casey. including the thread that got me to join KF in the first place.

You mean you all had to drink a shot every time I made a pun, Lion?  And somehow I missed this!  (rubs hands together)

Gosh.  All the memories.
