Official Sierra Forums nostalgia

Post by Akril » Sun Oct 12, 2008 6:57 pm

Back in 2000, I saved a copy of the main page of the official King's Quest forum. This was shortly before the forums changed to the WebX format*, and for reasons unknown, I decided to preserve this little piece of Sierra message board history.

Also, here's the archived main page of the forums.

*Speaking of which, anyone remember how the SQ forums title bar had messed-up Roman numerals, saying the forum covered SQI-IV or something like that? And how almost every forum had a fan art/fan fiction section? And how you could provide links to other fansites and unnofficial forums? Good times.

EDIT: I was considering posting this on the official forums for some time. Now I'm glad that I kept putting it off.

EDIT2: Darned Photobucket shrunk the image. Reuploaded.

Looks like each board format marked an age.

First there was this one, which unfortunately I do not remember.
Then, 2000 to 2005, the old good WebX. (God, how do I miss the dark purple GK skin!)
2005: switch to jive, an elegant, but slow, buggy and grey format.
2008: the official boards shutting down, and everyone moving to phpBB powered boards.

I did not think I would ever get nosthalgic about the Jive boards, but I am. They'd been home for three years...

I remember them! What a melancholia!

Hey, does anyone knows what happened to PhilipC from Gabriel Knight Board? Back then, he was very supportive of me even if my English was so bad! ;)

It would be nice to hear from him again!
Talk to coffee? Even Gabriel isn't that addicted!
