    Thanks to the Wayback Machine, here's the oldest snapshot of the JCF they have indexed. It's August 15th, 2000! With a couple of guests appearances by 2001! But this is OLD!

    A bit out of format, but here is the main page. Wow, SciFi3D refuses to die, eh?

    Hahahahaha Communications was part of Community. That explains sooo much. And hey, the AC...


    Okay! Let's take a look at what people were talking about! Let's start with the spoilers forums:

    Wow @epic you are so old.

    [​IMG]
    Ah yes, a perfect snapshot of the era: clone theories, traitor theories, BS spoilers, EU speculation...

    And look at this visionary!

    Let's take a look at JCC:

    That's.. a lot of posts. And is that @PrincessKenobi?

    Look at that pioneer, before the Roleplaying Forums existed!

    Sadly, you can't access most threads (so sorry, no resolution to "Man, someone just farted")


    Do you have any old posts saved? Share them here!

    Sorry for the double post . . . had to get permission for this. It's funnier with the names attached, but alas, it is not to be.

    Doing my part to convince RebelScum to use FireFox (see top thread). I believe this was me showing off the wonders of tabbed browsing.

    I’m pretty sure I have a screenshot of the infamous Rush parody spree.

    Oh, I have my suspicions.

    I wonder who owns the farm nowadays after Sgrmac bet it on Jar Jar dying in AOTC?

    TFN and/or JC was hosted by IGN? That probably explains how I originally ran into this place. I'm certain I was familiar with IGN first. I believe I discovered IGN just by entering "n64.com" into AOL back in the day. They seemingly would have linked this website while I was browsing around back then.

    When I joined in 2002 we were hosted by IGN. Not sure when that started though. We're now on our own hosted servers, as is our sister site Rebelscum. They aren't on the Xenforo software yet though - they are still on VBulletin.

    The evolution of the boards goes UBB - snowboard - IGN - xenforo. A lot of the oldest history of the forum got lost in the switch from UBB to snowboard, I think only posts made in the last few months got transfered over I lost my earliest post history except 7 posts for example.
