from the archive "Ghost Sites /Museum of E-Failure" comes THIS


Now hopefully LJ wouldn't become so bad that 6A wouldn't change to THIS color schem b/c then if they do make it something this GAWDY then that's a sign that we all are totally malfed.

I remember six degrees dot com!

Whatever happened to that?

You do? I don't remember you....
I think it was the first victim of the dot com bust that I knew of.

I remember chatting on ICQ with a friend that was in a foundering Battletech PBEM that I invited to 5D and he lives in town and works for the CBS affiliate and he told me at that time that the company in charge didn't get enough money in from the banner ads...I think that was what he was saying...or maybe it was the undercurrent of what he said that I remember.

All I also remember is that I barely do remember all the gripes about their target market change, that once the site had been bought out from their original owners by Youthstream, that it changed to be less a real "community based website for all ages" to something catering more to the 13-18 and young adult crowd.

Which is sometimes what I hear about Netfriendships now too since as long as I have been a member there, I knew of people leaving just because it seems they were catering to the superficial teenybopper crowd...even some that are in my age bracket like 30+ feeling a bit put out by the service's insistance on things like "Miss Net Friendships" and the new "gifts" like now...the new gifts are getting a bit too...RAUNCHY...more raunchy than the thong gift and stuff and the handcuffs.

There's now even a "rate my thong"

I think if that happens, we can raise a ruckus. :)

I don't think they're going to change LJ drastically because there'll still be the same staff - just under different ownership.

There's a reason there's that little html section in the "modify journal" page. If you don't like the color schemes, change em! :P
