Re: The forum is shutting down

I want to shed some light on my experiences with the Yesterweb as well. I found the Yesterweb when it was in its infancy. The Yesterweb drew me in because it reminded me of my childhood. I spent my childhood making websites and to see other people doing that and the seemed to look back it with such ...

Re: The forum is shutting down

I know it will seem odd to a lot of people that we are deciding to close down pretty much everything Yesterweb related. I could wax poetic for a decade about why. I know some folks will want us to "hand over the reigns" to people rather than shuttering the YW completely. That's not going t...

Re: i don't like neocities

Right now Neocities is a time-bomb and a cesspool, where bigots, nazis, transphobes and more thrive. Is it? I’ve never seen any such content on Neocities? [/quote] It's pretty prevalent. Obviously I won't link to anything but if you mainly find people through other people following people you won't...

Re: i don't like neocities

I loathe Neocities. I am a supporter and think it opens up the creativity for smaller creators. But Neocities is so limited in many ways, but mainly by Kyle- the creator of Neocities. There have been no meaningful updates for ages, no moderation to speak of. To make things worse it's open-source but...

Weekly Discussion - What Does Our History Say About Our Future?

I've been reading a lot about history lately and it made me think about how we often know where we are but we don't always understand how we got here. This week let's discuss our shared history. What is your favorite thing about the past? What does the past suggest for the future? What does the pres...

Re: What do you like to do outside?

As someone who goes outside all of the time but often doesn't have all that much spending money, I really like to go antiquing or thrift shopping. It's fun just to browse all of the knick knacks- I especially like looking at old electronics. Another great idea is going to the library of course! Some...

Re: The right-wing side of web revival

This is something that the Yesterweb actively pushes against. We share the admiration for a web free from corporate influence and surveillance. What we don't share is who the enemy is and what the goal of the web should be. The days of yore were not some great bastion of creativity- in-fact back in ...

Re: thoughts on video game piracy?

I've 100% pirated games. The main reason was my poor gaming hardware. I really really didn't want to buy a game that I couldn't even play, so a lot of times if I'm unsure about that I'll pirate it- or a version if there's no demo and try running it. If we're good then I'll usually buy it- if it's fr...

Re: What can we learn from the Old web?

I think the most important thing we can glean from the Old Web is the fact that there was a time where the internet existed without being such a walled garden- where advertising existed but it wasn't as insidious. It's important to remember the Old Web for what it was. The Old Web suffered from the ...

When I was younger I used to have panic attacks. Usually they happened right before bed or while I was sleeping. The only way I was able to get over them was by talking to myself in the mirror.
