Well... the forums are as dead as they can get, so i finally decided to release some of the crap i've been accumulating for over 10 years
But first, i gotta take you back to the past. At some point way back at the beginning, i started taking screenshots of every little thing i found interesting about the forums, or saving attached files that were funny or worth saving at all. I don't know why, i just thought it was cool to be able to refer to my screenshots when i needed proof about something.
Anyway, over two years ago (time flies!), i started the "Random pic of the day"
thread, where i shared random pictures from my "Messenger Plus! forums" folder. Today, im sharing everything. Every image, mp3, thread, etc. i've saved for the past 10 years (related to the forums) is here, a few things aside. i DID go through every single file, checking if it had to be "censored". That means that i deleted a few files here and there that was simply "private" (things i didn't want you to see or know about
). Still, it is possible that a few "private" files are still there and i just didn't notice them, so yeah... if you see something you shouldn't be seeing, just keep it to yourself
. You can ask me privately and i'll be happy to tell you the story like a fine grandpa
. Most of the emails were originally removed from the images, but some of them are still in there (i mean, in MSN screenshots, for instance). if yours is in there... i'm sorry! lol
Another thing to point out is that i used a software to convert MANY bmps into PNGs (don't ask why i saved many of the files in BMP, makes no sense
). i say this in case you find an image that doesn't work or whatever.
So... what will you find?
- A lot of the forum's history
- A lot of behind-the-scenes stuff.
- Videos/pictures of sonicsam, marissa, matty, Joa (she asked me to edit the post and add her in here, so there you go Joa ), etc. etc... and the good old "traxor.avi" (which was renamed but you can still find it easily lol)
- Voice acting, members recording themselves saying crazy things...
- avatars and signatures that started trends (like everyone making their own version of my sig).
- Pictures from different Plus! meetings
- And more!
Note that most of the files are pointless or not worth it, and you'd have to spend a whole evening to go through everything, let alone READ everything, because there's a lot of text in there. Also, I deliberately kept some of the threads from private forums in there, to make it more fun for whoever decides to check this out. Don't worry cookie, it's just a few threads
. So you might see me and surfi going nuts about silly things and such
. Also note that, "sadly", the folder is a complete mess that only i can understand, and most of the filenames are in spanish.
So here it is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8nzg2dirjzl4v5p/MsgPlus_forums.rar
it's 800MB, don't complain.
PS: im not sure how dropbox works so if you find that the link doesnt work or something, let me know
PPS: Please excuse the old screenshots, some of them are really bad quality. Also, in the older stuff i use windows 98/2000 which looks horrible
PPPS: Many of the gifs are animated, so view with the proper image viewer
