noughties spam part 7: websites  
the internet was obviously one of the larger things to really take off during the noughties and here are a few sites that personally were a large part of my life throughout that time. Clicking on the website name will take you to the site by the way :D






neopets

www.neopets.com



What's to say? It's an unkillable tamagochi crossed with an arcade - every twelve-year-old's fantasy game! Who hasn't gotten shamelessly hooked on this at one time or another :P


buffy forums
http://buffyforums.net/forums/



Right after discovering my first true fandom, this was the community that accepted me and allowed me to vent out all of the obsessions pent up inside and was what originally sparked my love for fanart. The wallpaper-making community there is (or was, I can't say I've been there recently) unlike any other


daydreaming
http://fractured-simplicity.net/daydreaming/



Owned by Jenni Lou, a buffyforums member, this is the ultimate high quality tv-show promotional image/screencap archive, I have no idea how she finds half of the things she does.


Jane Espenson's Blog
http://www.janeespenson.com/



Straight up, this woman is a genius. Her blog is full of countless writing (and general life) tips coming from somebody who really knows her craft. The blog has entirely changed the way I percieve the world; every post is worth reading.



icon_crack
http://community.livejournal.com/icon_crack/



Continuing the thread of fanart, this was the community that got me really addicted to icons. With all of the best makers participating there for a while there it really was an iconning renaissance and really inspired me to be the best I could be.



model hommes
http://modelhommes.com/



After watching ANTM, I was curious about what the real world of fashion was like and this was the first place I turned. There's something incredibly freeing in carelessly roaming faces in search for your ideal genetic makeup




fashin
http://community.livejournal.com/fashin



Again, curious about the world of fashin I discovered this community and was drawn in by their unusual attitudes and unique interpretation on the English language and haven't since been able to escape.



sweet station
http://www.sweet-station.com/



It's pretty much an online art gallery. The creativity of the people posted there consistantly amazes me, so much so that when I go to physical galleries I'm disappointed by the quality.

can you imagine how lost i was when i first found fashin? lol!
Joshblueymcphluey on March 20th, 2010 02:59 pm (UTC)
haha, I don't know how anybody without English as their first language survives there, so I can't help but bow down.
You're all going to be completely messed up for when it comes to having a normal English conversation though :P

I can proudly say I've never gotten shamelessly hooked on neopets! Probably because when I was twelve it was actual tamagotchi's that were all the rage and I got bored of that real fast. Probably for the better I never had real pets :)

I had the exact same experience with Charmedboards as you did with Buffyworld! You know, I just discovered Buffyworld this week as I was looking for some discussion on the s8 comics, but it was such a chaos I quickly turned back...

Gonna take a look at Jane Espenson's blog now!
Joshblueymcphluey on March 21st, 2010 01:12 am (UTC)
ooh, how are you finding the comics? I'm only up to about #20 because I want to marathon the rest of them, but I think it's doing a really good job of mimicing/continuing the series :D

I'd say the one fault with Jane's blog is that you kind of have to read it chronologically to get the most out of it :P
Dana: Btvs > Faithletsey_x on March 21st, 2010 04:48 pm (UTC)
I like the comics well enough. It's nothing like the actual show and there isn't much plot to speak of, but I like them WAY better than the Angel comics for sure. and there's one new ship in it that I LOVE and that now makes total sense when I rewatch the series:)
Carladrankmywar on March 20th, 2010 09:59 pm (UTC)
love this!
Joshblueymcphluey on March 21st, 2010 01:13 am (UTC)
:D
Stephharbourlight on March 21st, 2010 12:15 am (UTC)
Haha. There is a slight possibility that I still have around 15 million neopoints in the bank.

I wasn't obsessed at all...
Joshblueymcphluey on March 21st, 2010 01:16 am (UTC)
haha, I reached a point where I was getting $130 np in daily bank interest every day so I don't know where that put me, but nowhere near that I'm thinking :P
Stephharbourlight on March 21st, 2010 02:50 am (UTC)
I had around 5000 a day. SO I think it means your neopets addiction (if my math is correct) is around 3% of mine ;)
jessiieeeeeeiladora on March 23rd, 2010 09:17 am (UTC)
I begged my parents to be allowed on the computer to play neopets. I loved it to pieces, hehe.
Joshblueymcphluey on March 23rd, 2010 09:18 am (UTC)
haha, I used to get up a few hours earlier than I had to, catch the bus to dads house -where had the internet- so I could go on before school XD
jessiieeeeeeiladora on March 23rd, 2010 09:23 am (UTC)
wow, you win!

ps. your icon got rainbow-fied, why did you decide that needed to happen?
Joshblueymcphluey on March 23rd, 2010 12:18 pm (UTC)
because all icons need to be rainbow-ed! and it was for a theskilltester challenge where you had to use lots of textures and it felt unnatural using lots of the same colour

awww, thanks for the plug! :D
Joshblueymcphluey on March 23rd, 2010 09:47 pm (UTC)
thanks for the pictures! :P
nikkidotnikkidot on March 25th, 2010 04:50 am (UTC)
neopets!!!!

I'm not gonna lie, I wanna go on for a game of meerca chase now..
Joshblueymcphluey on March 25th, 2010 04:59 am (UTC)
lol oh yes! that was the best one!
