So according to my calendar, today is my 13th anniversary of being on Marriland/Azurilland/Marriland. I went and looked at the old forums and it appears to be gone completely now. Sad day. Anyway, hope you are all doing well!

Heya Slix!
Unfortunately the only thing remaining of the old forums is anything saved by the wayback machine.... but it's better than nothing!

Hi! Yeah, sadly that's where a lot of the internet lives after some time. I wish more companies cared about preservation, but alas.

Happy Marriversary, Slix!!! My 11th is at the end of the month.
Huzzah for being old timers! Lol.

But, yeah. Sadly archiving isnt always something companies think of.
.
Azurilland was pretty much just lost to Curse's demise. I really wish it could at least redirect here. But that's probably impossible at this point.

They didn't even give us any heads up, either. It was truly heartbreaking.

I mean...I don't think we should have expected any kind of heads up from Curse.

And I'm not sure when it happened, but congrats on becoming Admin, Ben! That's awesome!

Oh yeah congrats on being an admin!

And while a part of me is glad to not have my embarrassing old posts up anymore- I can't deny I'm bummed all that history is gone. Even beyond the grave- Curse continues to be annoying

I think the day I found out the old forums were "gone gone" were one of the saddest days of recent times. I guess at some point, all of the corners of the internet will be deleted at some point, but it's just sad that someone out there thought it wasn't worth storing.

Isn't that a weird thought? The vast majority of human progress, knowledge, and accomplishment these days is tied to something completely intangible.

When a solar flare fries our entire planet plus every piece of technology thereon, will the aliens think human civilization basically ended in the early 00's?

I think it's worse than that - imagine explaining to an alien that each day you went to a little blue screen* filled with words from other people. It doesn't physically exist bar a few electrons out there, somewhere, remembering all the 0s and 1s; it is all flat, and as you said if it did get wiped out by a solar flare, there would be no physical evidence of it existing.

...i think we need merchandise.

* = other forum skins are available.

If you go sign up we can probably make that happen.
