    Exclamation ARCHIVE: Visual history of TOL.

    In this thread I will do my best to catalog a running history of TOL though the ages.

    Look what I dug up! A screen shot of the very first version of TheologyOnLine. Notice we didn't yet own the domain name "theologyonline.com".

    This screen shot was taken Oct 27th 1997 - I am not sure how long TOL was up and running before this shot was taken.

    This is when TOL really started to get rolling.

    I think this is 2001-ish?

    Then TOL changed its look and took on a very clinical (some may even say) hospital-ish look.

    circa 2002

    I am a tad fuzzy on what look came next....

    You might notice I didn't take some of these screen shots. They were submitted to the old gallery from various TOL members and that's why I have them.

    circa 2003

    And of course the hi-fi and lo-fi "Mac-ish" versions.

    circa 2005

    This is so "yesterday".

    Knight,

    It would be just as interesting to see all the avatars you have used throughout the years! When I joined in June 2003 you had the "purple knight" avatar.
