What interests you about the Yesterweb? ive been interested in the indie web for a while in its various forms, but only recently got involved in actually building my own site and place online. those here are likeminded but open to new ideas and extremely expressive, and i really enjoy the company of most i have met through the yesterweb community.
i've felt creatively adrift for most of my life, and this gave me something i didn't really know i needed.

Principles: no cookies, no catering to mobile, javascript is on thin ice, no offsite resources. piracy is morally right. trans rights. eat the rich. han shot first.
What interests me about the yesterweb: the sense of a space created by and for the people that inhabit it, for their own sake! The amount of self-expression that's possible, and even expected! The honesty and integrity expressed here can't really be found elsewhere on the net. It feels like a rebellion of sorts, it's fresh. Maybe i'm romanticizing it now but yeah. Yeah!!!!

What interests you about the Yesterweb? There's nowhere else on the internet that you'll find sites with as much personality as the sites in the Yesterweb community. They give me nostalgia for a time I was barely even a part of. I'm on the hunt for that alluring drug that is nostalgia.
What's your favorite thing to do online? At this point, all I do online is watch YouTube and browse Hacker News hoping that they'll link to cool websites like on the Yesterweb.

P.S. How do you add info under your profile that's on the left hand side of this post? I've never used a forum before :cry:

Hi! I'm Matcha or Punk. I'm a young adult and my pronouns are he/they 8) I like rabbits, web dev, neopets, video games (i prefer shooters but I am trying to expand my horizons) & ttrpgs. I love the idea of trying to find a more personal space on the internet, especially away from social media, and finding how others choose to express themselves too. My favourite thing to do online is play/browse retro neopets (did you know theres quite a few revival sites out there?) & browse other people's blogs - its fun to see how other people's lives are going.

Age (or range): old enough.

What interests you about the Yesterweb? today's internet and social media sucks, so I'm glad there is a community here dedicated to bringing back the experience of communities and creative freedom that once made the web a fun and interesting place. I'm also glad there is a forum now since I prefer it as a format over the Discord server that is easy to get lost in.
What's your favorite thing to do online? browsing community-created content such as fanart and fanfiction of popular media (doing my best to avoid the ugly side of it, lol), meeting friends who share my interests and looking at discussions of interesting topics. I also enjoy using the internet to learn new skills and facts (be careful believing what you read though), which is still one good the 'net has to offer even in this day and age.

Interests/hobbies: All forms of art and creativity, but I'm currently focused on drawing, painting, writing, and music. Also interested in math, programming, tech in general, philosophy (feels gross saying that idk why), and learning anything that catches my eye.
What interests you about the Yesterweb? The message behind it, the things it promotes and opposes, the world it wants to create. The internet is our second world. Just like how we should take care of the earth, the main world we live in, we should create a good digital environment for us to spend our time in.
What's your favorite thing to do online? Learning about and discovering new stuff. Anything from something related to a hobby, to finding to media to watch/read, to reading someones blog and about page to learn a bit about how someone else views the world.

Maybe I've got too many interests. Whoops!
What interests you about the Yesterweb? I recently got really into making my own site on Neocities after having the goal of making my own place on the web in the back of my mind for a while, and when I found Yesterweb after getting started it was a great find. I only joined the discord server today, but it seems like a great community, and I really wanted other website making lovers to share stuff with and talk with!
What's your favorite thing to do online? Watching YouTube videos, reading articles, working on my site, exploring cool sites especially ones that relate to stuff I'm into.

it feels weird posting on a phpBB forum again. just like old times am I right folks

anyway

I'm eblu, a nearly-21-year-old and creator of a million projects in various stages of incompletion. I take a little too much inspiration from the mid-late 2000s for my own good, but it's cool. I'm currently working on a game intended for the web, but I've put it on the backburner for now.

the yesterweb is really interesting! I (re)discovered personal sites through a now friend of mine, and I've had a neocities page since late 2020 (don't bother looking at it, I haven't updated it since then and I regret a lot of things that I put on there). seeing people forging their own spots on the web again is relieving on an increasingly corporate internet.

if y'all need any pointers on how to accomplish things on the forum, don't be afraid to send me a message. I don't have 10 years of forum experience for nothing

Interests/hobbies: I must be a little bit interested in a million things at this point but I mostly care about fandom stuff. Reading about lifestyle or history is fun too.

What interests you about the Yesterweb? The zine is very fun to read, and quite informative! So is seeing people talk about the web and web-making in the Discord server.

What's your favorite thing to do online? Not gonna lie, if I feel like there’s nothing to do, I’ll just unconsciously grab the phone and start scrolling mindlessly. So it feels like while I’m online a lot, it’s hard to recall what exactly I like about it. I like reading (+contributing to, if possible) wiki pages, conversations and threads on topics I’m interested in and checking to see if my favorite fics on AO3 has updated and comment (it’s a bonus if the author replied!), I guess.

How do you feel about the Yesterweb forum? I really hope it grows! It’d definitely be nice to be able to take conversations more slowly and have the context actually available for everyone. Also it’s baby’s first forum :D
I have not thought of a cool signature yet! :P

Post by september »

Name/alias: Evie/September, take your pick <3

Age (or range): 21+

Interests/hobbies: writing/creating, singing/music (Manic Street Preachers ftw!), making static websites, collecting cute stuff, journalling, (mostly) retro anime, all things Tolkien, tarot, probably some other silliness I'm forgetting because I'm pre-coffee

What interests you about the Yesterweb? I honestly don't know, when I'm put on the spot. I've been making largely pointless static personal sites nonstop since '99, so to me, it's not a new thing or a revival, thus I find it hard to put my finger on. What I like best about it is that IT'S NOT THE EFFING CORPNET HOLY CRAP Lain save us all

What's your favorite thing to do online? steal music :P also, connect with people! Not in the socnet way, in a real way.

Age (or range): 33 (just turned)
Interests: Video games, Marvel movies, pop-punk (including the current revival happening), metal (a variety of styles), and some buttrock
Hobbies: Game development, weightlifting
What interests you about the Yesterweb? I think the idea of Web 1 is nice, as that's how I grew up on the internet. It was simple, but also informative in its own way. Also, nostalgia addiction hahaha.
What's your favorite thing to do online? Probably poke and edit my websites, even if it's just minor tweaks.

Lightning round! I'm from Canada, my pronouns are he/him but I personally wouldn't be bothered being given any pronoun, I've lost over 50 lbs since May of 2021, and I'm going back to school in the fall (hopefully).

▷ Ayo I'm Squid-Died, or just Squid if you like
▷ I'm a digital artist and I'm usually collaborating with my best friend on commissions!
I'm also working on a webcomic with her called Cryptal Archive. Its about a pair of podcast hosts who educate people on extinct magic in an effort to preserve it in the face of a society who would see it erased from history. We've worked super hard on it so if ur curious please check it out x3
▷ I came to this place because I'd like to reconnect with an aspect of my online experience that seems to have gone missing in the modern world lol. I'm also kinda into retro stuff in general, so this place looks good!
▷ I hope I can make friends with some of you! (o゜▽゜)o☆
