Default What were your first websites?

When you first started exploring the information super highway, what kind of websites did you visit?

I remember playing games on Bonus.com a lot but apparently it closed some time in 2007. I can't even find a picture of it anymore.

So which ones did you all visit? Are they still around? Have they changed completely?

I started using the internet as a kid so the first site I ever visited frequently was Miniclip. It's still around but it's changed a lot. I still visit it sometimes if I'm too bored XD I especially like those archery games it has.

Neopets, spent hours on that thing, lmao. To be fair though, the web site introduced me to a lot of cool things. Digital art, a lot of writing, for example stories and short pieces, and of course, intensive html. Yeah man, those were the days.

lego.com, the site is a lot more modern now, but they took out some of my favorite stuff.

The forums were so bad, your posts had to be moderated before it actually was posted and that would take an entire day

IGN.com, Yahoo games/chat, Nintendo Nsider forums. I didn't really start using the internet til '99. I never had a computer, so I could only get on at my buddy's house.

The earliest websites I remember accessing are Cartoon Network and Arcadelist. I know that I was browsing before those , though. The earliest website I accessed could very well have been MSN

Let's see... not counting the more obvious thins such as Youtube, I believe my first two forums were Pokemon TCG and a Super Mario based forum. I was 11 at the time, and eventually got banned from the latter site at 13 cuz apparently I got on everyone's nerves. I look back and realize I shouldn't have even been on the internet then. Ahaha, good times.

There might have been another website too but that was 4 years ago almost...

THIS. Neopets also was what got me into roleplaying which has turned into the ultimate practice field for the rest of my writing development ~
