Name/alias: jim / james / jimothy/ moth / any silly variation thereof

Age (or range): early 30's

Interests/hobbies: photography, pixel art, and lots of other stuff cus ill try almost anything at least once; topics of interest include queer studies/history, disability justice & mad pride, wildlife & conservation/ecology, and listening to anyone talk about their own niche interests/trivia/hyperfixations! I like music and I hate lawns.

What interests you about the Yesterweb? i've missed this!!!! I was like 9 or 10 years old the first time I made a website for myself and the internet was my WHOLE WORLD until social media and "content" started to take over.

Neopets (and Subeta!) taught me everything I know about coding and I need to update my knowledge and finally learn javascript ;x anyway I love that there are still folks out here keeping this stuff going and I wanna play, too! also I am over social media. and i realized I can just. not use it. like if i could make all my friends join a neopets guild instead of adding me on FB or sending me emails i would do that so fast. but no one's up for that so anyway here i am

What's your favorite thing to do online? Coding for sure!! I like making little webpages for my virtual pets (currently playing Dappervolk and Flight Rising), changing my Tumblr theme, and playing on Neocities, and when I'm not coding on the computer I'm usually pixelling something for a thing that I coded.

Name/alias: bluebeqi. It was sunnymuffins but I feel like that doesn't really fit anymore? idk, blue seems to be a recurring color in my life, regardless of my personal tastes and I feel like surrendering to it.
Age (or range): 28
Interests/hobbies: pixel art, the old/dead web, currently getting into Monster High dolls, because they are the most beautiful dolls I think I've ever seen marketed to children.
What interests you about the Yesterweb? We all seem to want generally the same thing: personal freedom on the internet. Freedom to express ourselves and our personality in ways we can't on the mainstream platforms. Freedom to explore different personas more or less anonymously without being perpetually advertised to based on a phase we went through for a solid two weeks. I like the Yesterweb because it has shown me that I'm really not alone in this desire for a free, personal web. As a bonus, Yesterweb provides great resources and hidden gems that might otherwise have slipped off my radar.
What's your favorite thing to do online? Code and recode my website, surf the webrings, download insanely cute graphics, get inspiration for my own graphics, and read forums.

Age (or range): I believe this is called "late twenties"

Interests/hobbies: Art, writing, videogames, hyperfixating on media

What interests you about the Yesterweb? I've been b*tching about social media becoming obnoxious and losing the custom touch for years by this point, but I only accidentally discovered Yesterweb, like, last year thanks to a tumblr post. Since then I've been circling the website and lurking around the webring too overwhelmed by opportunities to actually make something of my own. But recently I've started to finally pursue a personal art-project and suddenly! I have something to build a website around! Which I'm currently happily doing. Slowly. But I have some ideas.
All in all, I was very happy to find a community of people valuing same stuff I found enjoyable about the internet back in my teenage years. Aka customization, autenticity, character and not giving a damn.

What's your favorite thing to do online? I think generally it'd be finding people to yell about a new thing that has consumed my life together. Which includes finding new artists and also sharing my own art. I'm very passionate about my "blorbos", as tumblr puts it. Can you guess which one social media I still use? I used to be also very good at yelling about stuff I love regardless of having people to listen or not. I'm kinda hoping to learn to do that again, feedback addiction is exhausting.

Name/alias: ju1ia (u can call me juli or just julia :D)
Age (or range): millenial

Interests/hobbies: im looking for friends so im gonna list as many interests as i can on the off chance that someone goes "hey! that sounds like my kind of person!" XD......
the old web and its revival, gamedev, indie and retro games, music (listening and making), art (consuming and making, of all kinds including classical paintings, 3D, pixel art, comics, animation, etc), photography and film, handicrafts and diy, dollz and dating games and other "girly" digital content, fashion and style, history (currently obsessed with Tasting History on yt!), culture and language, psychology and related stuff (im deep into mbti functions :D not mbti misuse tho! dw!), dolls and toys and miniatures, and a lot more that i cant think of.
for visual arts i enjoy deeply personal and quirky stuff with strong emotions, and also just fun quirky stuff and pretty stuff. some gaming interests are hypnospace, pokemon gen 1-2, stardew valley. for music i like both crunchy chiptune and medieval hymns and 90s pop and everything in between as long as i enjoy that particular song. i used to be rly into manga and (queer) shipping and self-inserts and stuff but its fallen off the side a bit.

What interests you about the Yesterweb? i made my own website when i was like 12 (a pokemon site) back on the old web and loved exploring other ppls sites, bit by bit all that world has gotten lost to time. im pissed off with the way social media and the web is today. so i rly want to be part of a healthier anti-capitalist online community and be part of the web revolution XD i played hypnospace outlaw and i was like damn i rly want to be on the old web again, then i found the yesterweb site and made my neocities page.

What's your favorite thing to do online? watching youtube, mostly informative videos and documentaries, and tutorials/timelapses. finding cool music and art anywhere. browsing pics on pinterest. sometimes i play with dollmakers/picrew/etc. i used to love playing neopets and gaia online but not much of that i enjoy nowadays.
friend me: neocities, disc0rd: ju1ia#9105, spacehey, tumblr, pinterest

Call me "Bill". I'm sick of whatever the internet has been mangled into. What was once a realm of inexhaustible adventures and possibilities has now become a vapid venue of vanities where everything is made into "marketable brands" pushed for reaping meaningless profit. All the social ills we see today can be said as a result of the heinous manipulation brought on by the corporate and federal entities that took over the forefronts of the internet. Or perhaps I’m just crazy.
Anyway, I’m rather dismissive toward everything because I don’t care about things beyond my control and life's too short too worry about stuff, but i'd still love to talk about anything:) .

Hello!!

Name/alias:
Cerebrum (or Sunny, Chem, or Rad)

Age (or range):
19 y/o

Interests/hobbies:
I primarily focus on drawing and writing, focusing primarily on my own OCs! Other hobbies and interests include collecting plushies, looking around antique stores, and games such as Kirby, Splatoon, and Pokémon!

What interests you about the Yesterweb?
I’ve always had a love for the old web and retro technology, and I’ve also been rapidly getting increasingly fed up with modern technology and the current state of the internet. I’ve began working on my own website to primarily use to share information on my current projects, and I’ve been loving working on it! I want to connect with the community surrounding the Yesterweb so I can discuss these topics with other people working on creating their own space of the net, and also hopefully help me get away from modern social media more

What's your favorite thing to do online?
I love looking though images and gifs from the old web! Outside of that, I primarily socialise with my online friends, and watch videos on retro technology and similar stuff

It’s nice to be here!

Name/alias: Miles/Milo

Age (or range): 20

Interests/hobbies: Oh man, I have tons! Computing/coding/surfing the web, obviously. TTRPGS, namely VTM and CTD and other WOD games, collecting/customising/making toys (but mostly collecting), video games (particularly NDS/PS2 games and old PC games), gothic horror and urban fantasy, reading and writing, and animals (particularly bugs [not arachnids], sea creatures, and horses.

What interests you about the Yesterweb? The sheer amount of customization :) I've always appreciated being able to make something my own and reflect myself better-- and the Yesterweb and personal websites are a great way to do that. I think in being able to showcase who you are and the things you care about, it allows you to connect better to other people; especially because you have something right in common from the get-go: your love of the old web!

What's your favorite thing to do online? I enjoy exploring links to find cool new sites, blogs, and other cool stuff! I also just enjoy reading things written by people on their pages and hearing them talk about things they love :)
Ehhhh... I'll make a proper icon and signature some other time ;P

Interests/hobbies: A lot of stuff. Mostly Central Asian (Kazakh, Mongolian especially) cultures, history, cats, potted plants, makeup, language learning. My hobbies are mostly writing, reading and drawing, but I also play the dombra, which is an instrument from my beloved Kazakhstan.

What interests you about the Yesterweb? It's far removed from mainstream social media horseshit. Less bloated, no tracking, no stupid Twatter-level discourse, it's much chiller there. Basically, less bullshit. There may still be bullshit, as it's made of people and if there are people, there is bullshit, but probably much less, and people are much less terminally online than on usual social media, I think. Besides, the sheer amount of cool customization. It's not something that is possible with a premade Facebook/Instagram that exists by the billions.

What's your favorite thing to do online? Just reading stuff around, listening to good music, and learning languages.

Hey gang!

Name/alias: Tyoma or Jonah

What interests you about the Yesterweb? Well, I always wanted my own website since I was a kid and I only was able to dip my toes in once I found Neocities. After doing a digital declutter (or two) I realized that I would love to touch grass more and social media has been negatively impacting my life. I've been part of the Yesterweb community for... I dunno, maybe a year now? So far I know it's made my online habits a lot more healthy and now I can confidently say that I don't hate online anymore :^)
What's your favorite thing to do online? Downloading and archiving things I like :^)

  • Name/alias: Ray, Anna
  • Age (or range): 24
  • Interests/hobbies: Plants, gardening, critters of all kinds & quantity of limbs, solarpunk, cooking, doing art of any kind, learning about many different things, science & technology. I'm a very curious person who loves to dabble a tiny bit in everything, and has many interests and passions! =D
  • What interests you about the Yesterweb? I LOVE the web!! It's just, web 2.0 has kiiind of utterly destroyed my brain I think. But I love the web so much. Curating my online experience the way I see fit, with more focus on intentionally seeking out interesting stuff rather than mindless mind destruction, seems like a good compromise. I Love seeing people's pages and sites - it's like looking into little open windows inside other people's minds. The sheer creativity the old web offers people is still unparalleled!
  • What's your favorite thing to do online? Browse wikipedia, go on hunting missions looking for some niche information or file (and then archiving it), Furcadia (when I have the time!), Youtube. I really enjoy some Tumblr and Reddit as social media! Although I'm starting to use them less often as I'm trying to spend less time online in the first place.
  • I'm from Italy, so forgive some awkward phrasing here and there. If a connational sees this and wants to say hello please do!! It's always hard meeting like minded people from around your part of the world <3
  • I never participated in the Discord, bc the hectic and busy chatroom vibe isn't for me. I didn't know there was a forum!! Hello hello!! I missed forums so much!
I hope to make some buddies and see many cool sites. Hello!! :love:

Name/alias: soggy basahan
Age (or range): young adult
Interests/hobbies: web design, graphic design, literature, webweaving, mindful internet use

I like looking at and reading through links that I won't find on mainstream social media or search engines, especially the poetic web, and the soft web! I believe that web technology has so much more potential not just for branding yourself online but for way more creative and unconventional uses!
