I noticed there's been a lot of announcement threads running about lately, with all the people around here discovering the wonderfulness that is proboards.com.

I also noticed that there's no central location for people to make such announcements anywhere on the forum. This causes a few problems: first, there's a new thread for every individual site, and second, these announcements disappear off the main page very quickly, and as such, are lost without most people getting the opportunity to visit that particular site and appreciate the personal work of that forumite.

To rectify this, here is the new Personal Site Announcement Thread.

Announcements that belong here include (but are not limited to): personal websites, weblogs, clubs/associations/cults, forums, and chat rooms. The usual rules of pre-warning people about graphic or explicit content on your site when you link it from this forum still apply.

This thread is not intended for sites meant to be associated with Matazone or the Matazone Forums as a whole (an example of which being the Unofficial Fansite or the Family Albums). Those sorts of sites usually involve several forum members, and as such, normally will have pinned threads of their own.

If you have a personal site that fits the above description, I would invite you to post a link below, even if you have announced it before in a previous thread, so that there can be a central directory of such sites for the entire forum community. I believe this system will be beneficial to the forum as a whole.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Once upon a time, many years ago, a man called Tim Berners-Lee invented the Internet. Or he might not have done. But let's say he did, just for the sake of argument.

Then, for a long time, people used modems and Netscape. Great sites were rare and people mainly played with IRC.

And then broadband arrived and there were lots of websites.

And one day, in the middle of all this, came along the greatest website of all time. It was so great that the Internet changed irrevocably. Possibly.

And then, just as abruptly, the site went away. The masses cried.

Then they forgot about the greatest site ever and the Internet moved onwards, onwards into torrents, Web 2.0 and online offices.

Now, that site has returned, to bring joy and amazement to a whole new audience. And some of the old one.

Behold the triumphant return of The League Of ISH!

Different URL, same great taste.
