This thread is to things you remembered about ZU from the past 11 years. Such things can include certain mods that were in charge, certain instances that occurred, drama, changes in website, users, cool threads, events, etc.
Here is an example:
I remember when ZU didn't have a Zelda Theorizing section. In fact there were these random "theory" threads in General Zelda section. Once in a while there was a thread called "The Zelda Timeline Thread". If I remember correctly around summer of 2005 myself and several others started posting more theory threads frequently which resulted in the creation of a new zelda section.
I remember when Serious Discussion was called Internet: Serious Business.
Why we switched remains a mystery to me...
The original name of that board was "Serious Discussion."
I renamed it one year on April Fools' Day, because I renamed absolutely every board. Its new name was Internet: SERIOUS Business.
After that prank, two artifacts were kept. "S"D was left as Internet: Serious Business, and the Advertising board's description kept the insult against invision free boards.
At some point later, it was decided it was rude to leave it as I:SB...so it changed.

The Shantytown died when it (I will admit) served its purpose: People lost interest in sprite comics.
I remember The Great April Fool's Prank of 2004
I remember when Peefy, Tenkawa, Ganon's Daughter, Remus, SearanoX, Lioness, andi, Lord of Shadow, OldBeane,BigBroDavidia, Malony, Frodo, Ascius and all those other ZU greats were the main posting force
I remember ALL the 4chan attacks and takeover and resets (oh. God xD)
I remember the first person to fake his death on ZU (Bahamut!)
I remember when CAPN tried to do the same thing
I remember the Emigration of Starship members from ZU to ZeldaInformer

I remember when LIAH was a wee newbie :> *smiles*
I remember when Nayru had NOTHING to do with perviness or anything cheap and was THE best clan

I remember when Lars was active in the forums and the chat
I remember the time beFORE The serious Discussion board ever existed
and remember the first trial one and how it then got deleted only to be resurrected again much later.
I remember when there was a "hottest ZU girl" contest or something like that, and Nenue (can't exactly spell her name) won it and had this guy called Mute kinda stalking her. He pissed me off and it would seem he eventually left.
I remember infracting SuperDecimal for some Zelda spoilers or w/e. I remember him racking up his postcount SO GODDAMN FAST that I was like, my god.
And I remember talking to Liah about toast and hip-hop.
Aaand I remember Asia/Anime Queen giggling at me in a thread 'cause I said I wanted a job and that I should've had one, but couldn't be arsed to find one.
And of course DrZaius1 and lord-of-shadow's Zelda-debates.
Holy fugg it's been a while and I still have managed to make barely a handful of buddies at most on here, if even that. It's a damn asocial record! lol
Oh and I also remember SearanoX with Kedisar and how they were like...metal-buddies or something. Kedisar freakin' pissed me off.
I remember he actually made a thread about how he performed some sort of semi-surgery on his toenail or w/e, and even posted a pic lol...
O and I remember when we made up drama in the staff for April Fool's, and I was the one to set it off with a drama-thread and we mods used alternate accounts to trick people we were going to replace the staff with a new set of random people.
o u zu
