can someone tell me the story of INTL

i posted here in around 2003 i think

someone referenced "the slow decline" - that sounds dramatic, i bet a poster with way too much time on their hands could reply in here and make that really interesting

no seriously i want to know, i also admin an originally phpbb, not invision board, i am interesting in the generational mutation of the internet and the consolidation of the archipelago of websites into an objectively shitter group of google/apple/facebook continents

thanks

Probably Sunny can tell you but i think the original posters were all refugees from HeavenGames Age of Kings website and then there was also another age of kings-associated forum called IGod

and later some forum for children called Spankmag sent a bunch of people here? I am not really sure about all that

A bunch of teenage outcasts and goody two-shoes somehow found their way to a forum run by a guy who wanted to be the next Lowtax.

Quoted from Sunhasrahla:
A bunch of teenage outcasts and goody two-shoes somehow found their way to a forum run by a guy who wanted to be the next Lowtax.


good start

Here's what I remember:

2001 - Sandamnit created INTL as a personal project to learn PHP
2002 - I really don't remember, I had just discovered masturbation
2003 - tail end of INTL's golden age, the forum software was starting to slow down but it still worked okay
2004 - I stopped paying much attention here but I remember it was pretty active during the summer
2005 - Sandamnit stopped giving a fuck and the forum almost went offline, Chimp took over
2006 - I think the forums got rewritten and become INTL v5
2007 - dunno
2008 - dunno
2009 - somehow still online, probably 15+ active posters
2010 - dunno
2011 - I think I took over here, I don't remember exactly when that happened
2012 - I guess sometime around here we lost the original address because etzxsymissirs or whatever his fucking name was decided to not pay the bill or make any effort in warning us that the renewal was coming up, so INTL became BINTL, or Bad Internet Decisions, thanks Cathy for the name
2013 - year of vissario being a giant cunt
2014 - dunno
2015 - dunno
2016 - I fucked up the forum for like 6 months because a backup script ran backwards but we're still here

That concludes our history lesson, hope you learned something

it definitely had a smart ass somethingawful vibe about it, but i think as a teenager it was attractive because it seemed to be full of intelligent people, even if they were mostly being dicks to each other

that era is long gone, i can't keep up with technology or what passes for internet humour anymore

on the contrary, part of the reason i randomly googled INTL after not thinking about it for 10 years is because it still had meaning for me, so if you have been here on a more steady basis through those ten years then it has even more meaning for you, which now i think about it has nothing to do with your general intelligence, so i regret starting this paragraph

I feel like we're a psychologist trying to help an amnesia patient remember his identity. But we also don't know your identity so it's hard.

Yup, that's the kind of geographical ingenuity I've come to expect from Americans.
