Feels like it's been around for ever.
have we had this design for 8 years?
nah, it's more like 5 or something
the site was pretty much fine (if less dynamic) back in the day wasn't it? I hardly remember any bugs anyway.
There have been minor updates since then but it's been on Ruby on Rails since 2005.
The Ruby On Rails stuff was the previous design, which was peach and blue (and which never had any problems like threadsmashes, quotes disappearing, threads not appearing etc).
The peach was a redesign of that which went 5 years ago.
While there weren't threadsmashes tonnes of features disappeared to never reappear. It's never had as much functionality as it did pre-Oct 2005.
this is worse than listening to the old folk in the pub
at some point you could use basic html in posts as well!
but it's okay, it says they "hope to have it fixed shortly"
nah, i was in year 7 in 2005, 100% sure the site was blue and had a different design when i started posting (which was in year 9)
The day before:
13th Oct 2005. That was when rails came in. At one stage we had some peach stuff everywhere. I can't recall if that was straight away or some time after.
This HTMHell day was peach period:
it wasn't broken til ages after that though. pretty sure it was the nautical one in 2005
Best off using Google for that.
Google: "site: drownedinsound.com" and after put in the search terms you need.
they were responsible for gems such as "i don't get up til 9" and "and with that, i yield"
Although I believe technically they were due to some kind of Unix bug, which is probably why it seems to have been fixed now.

That's like if someone was to make a spoof DiSer video.
You could have a thread open inside a thread, inside a thread, inside a thread, inside a thread....
trying to search for reviews of certain bands and not getting anywhere then trying to use the artist tags thing to find reviews and not getting anywhere and eventually just gave up. I just assumed I was an idiot who couldn't use the site properly. (this is probably true any way).
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar!
mine is totally pimped out
so not being able to sort.
