What are some very old / nostalgic boards that are still active?

Post by JohnMiller92 » Mon Feb 26, 2018 4:11 am

I remember using phpBB way back in the day. When I was 12 or so. I remember seeing the GaiaOnline CEO post questions here asking about dynamic avatar creation.

Whenever I think of phpBB / vBulletin or IPB, it strikes a nostalgic cord in my heart. Kind of curious to see if any of the older versions of these are still going strong?

Without telling us your current age this could have been yesterday.

You mean software-wise? TextPad Community still operates on phpBB 2.

Nice! So cool to see a forum still going with phpbb 2.0 ty for that. Man, looking at the subsilver theme brings back a lot of memories :O

It's sort of the defining look of the internet for around 2003 isn't it!

It was a nice design. It served phpBB well :)
