 Old Tripod Message Boards (Permalink)
Mood:  surprised
Topic: Tripod
I was looking through disks for screenshots when I came across a folder that contained old copies of the message boards that Tripod used to host! It was a huge surprise because I've looked for these message boards quite a few times over the years but my searches came up empty.

To come across them was like... wow. I thought they were just gone or that I had them on a disk that disappeared. I uploaded the messages to FG Archives.

Fantasy Gathering on Tripod Messageboards

 

1999... What a blast from the past.

 Photo Album (Permalink)
Topic: Tripod
I logged into Tripod and decided to fart around with the photo album feature they have.

Photo Album

I took some pictures around Active Worlds and uploaded them to see how the feature works. It's interesting, I guess! I wish it was a little more organized or something but I guess that's something I'll deal with when I'm bored. hehe.

 Fantasy Pod - Pod Central on Tripod (Permalink)
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Tripod

A friend was looking over my site and asked about the Fantasy Pod thing on the front page. "Why do you keep them there?" I guess I like to keep things around that once were.

Tripod used to host something called Pods which were similar to clubs. Tripod pages signed up to join these Pods and it was Tripod's way of forming communities similar to how Geocities and FortuneCity had leaders that led their own communities or neighborhoods.

It was neat to get "Best of Pod". Hard to believe that was ten years ago!

As usual, Tripod just shuts things down and force members to use acquired products. I remember Tripod used to offer free guestbooks before they acquired Guestworld and told everyone to use it.

That's how Pod Central got shut down. Lycos had these weird clubs so Tripod shut down Pod Central and redirected everyone to the new clubs. I signed up for a club there and I couldn't quite figure out how to run it. It didn't last long though. Lycos had removed it.

That's an idea though. Tripod should return Pod Central and try to dig up the community again! ;)
