Blast from the Past (Part I)

As you’ve discovered, this archive lets you read the posts from the old Features Message Board, but they’re presented in a whole new layout.  Can you remember what the original message board looked like?

In part one of this series, we’ll go all the way back to that magical spring of 2002.  The message board was still young then.  It hadn’t had its first crash yet and was still running the old Ikonboard software.  Below are some screenshots that will show you how the FMB once looked. (Click on an image to see it full-size.)

    am i the only one who wants to keep comparing all of this to the dharma initiative? which one of you is benjamin linus? eno2 is desmond, right?

    also, it would be pretty cool if an active messageboard were hosted on here… not that i want to get addicted to this all over again.

    Wow. Well, that’s something I’d never really thought about before, but I guess it’d be possible to start a whole new message board. However, I wouldn’t want to do it without the support of the old members.

    So what do the rest of you think? Want to start posting again, or would you rather just leave all of that behind?

    The silence here is deafening.

    We’ll put it to a vote.
