@helenberrycrunch: haha i was always in this chatroom called ‘The Forest’ little 11 year old me was all ::emerges from the mist:: and then i’d just sit there “peering” at people. x_x

my first message boards were probably lj communities or something. i forget what came before that besides like… friendster.

Mine was hosted on ezboards. It was a Harry Potter RPG message board. lol….. yeah, I know I’m a nerd.

I also hung out the AOL chatrooms and this chatroom called Teen Chat Zone all the time.

I don’t remember the name of it but it was an unsanctioned message board for my college. Got shut down after like 2 years but it was great while it lasted.

A friend of a friend was really geek-literate and made a forum/message board with software similar to bb-press (WB host) where we thought we were all sup-ra cool and would talk about completely random and pointless stuff.

Other than that… idek really, lj communities maybe.

Uh…Neopets. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Then some super nerdy online RP chatboards, LOTR, Harry Potter, general fantasy style. Oh goodness. Long time ago.

I’ve never really been on another message board besides this one.

But a friend of mine and I thought we were BEYOND cool to get on AOL chat and chat it up with random dudes we thought were hot, but in reality were probably balding, pervie 60 year old men. We were seriously like 11 or 12.

When you logged in to chat it showed the little man running toward the AOL sign and made that terrible fax/phone dial sound. That’s how long ago that was.

We didn’t even have the internet at our house.

@chasesgirl: Yay! Neopets was my first one too! I actually learnt a lot of life skills from that site, a little bit of html code, how to refresh and click SUPER fast on things which helped me get the class spots I want for uni. Ah, good times. 🙂
