I remember when ZU...

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 Zelda Universe didn't have a "Like button". I also remember when ZU was really strict.

Re: I remember when ZU...

I remember when the forums were running phpBB2.

And when I was the site's only newsposter.

And when we made multiple main site software transitions.

And...

...I've been here a while. But not actually from the very beginning.

History lesson!

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.

And I made that one as "Sprite Comic Ghetto" to let actual art be actually seen by people while everybody was obsessed with sprite comics. It was renamed when someone complained, although the name was functionally the same.

The Shantytown died when it (I will admit) served its purpose: People lost interest in sprite comics.

Re: I remember when ZU...

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
