    I must have found TOL right at the beginning, I've been posting here since the 90's.

    Not all the page links work, but the internet archive shows many of the evolutions of TOL, including links on the forums that work for some pages.

    Amusing to review some of the forums having the same questions posted by the same persons asking the very same questions today.

    Historical questions for Knight

    Knight,

    Did you start this site yourself or did you take over for someone else? I ask because your "join date" isn't 1997.

    How many people were on the forum at first and about how many did TOL increase in the following years?

    What happened to Knight cam?

    I remember posting back in the days of this look. Do you have a database of old usernames and/or posts from those older forums?
    Funny how threads morph.

    You can also find a lot of old looks on the Alexa website, where they somehow chronicle the site's appearance throughout the years.

    We got a entirely new forum script in 2001 that's why the oldest members are from 2001 and not 1997. I created the username "Knight" in 2002 prior to that I was webmaster and Nathon Detroit.

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


    "Comments may be removed for any reason." has now evolved into "You may be banned for any reason," now. Oh, did I say that? Forgive me. But I was just looking at the original rules on this picture of yours from 1997. I was only observing the differences between the internet world then and now. I think the rules for all sites have changed from then to now, policies to so many things. I was only about twelve back then, anyways, so, what do I know?
