It's a long shot, I dunno how many geriatrics there are around these new days, but I found an old screenshot of PC of yesteryear and wanted to see if anyone else has some they could share too.

Whoo. That's old.

I'm sure I have some old screenshots of my own laying around, except I can't be bothered searching old folders for them at the moment.

I mean, there's this picture I've shown before, which is a shot of my profile pre-vB 3.8

Spoiler:

Before visitor messages and such were a thing.

Edit: So I did find some more, but the problem is that a lot of them are doctored; I liked to change the html of a page to see how I or others would look in a different color or name. But I did find another one, and this one is actually not doctored in the slightest.

Spoiler:

vB bug. :D also very red, holy crap.

I guess at the time I took these for reason, maybe I liked my themes and thought the Cherrim popping up was cute??

These are all from 2009 and 2010 :>

I... don't have as many as I thought I would, aww. But they span the years across like three distinct eras of PC so...! I'm giving my best estimates for these dates. And fair warning a lot of them are prob staff based rather than general screenshots 'cuz, well, 10+ years on staff. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

also you're not allowed to judge my tabs in these you just aren't.

c. 2003 - 2005

I think this is when Jorfe got Staff Admin? The filename mentioned him so apparently he's the highlight of it. But pls also notice Dakota (an old Dakota not around anymore, not current!Dakota) and his username he got stuck with for a few months bc for some reason we were assholes and wouldn't let him change his joke name back or something??? Or maybe he was chill with it, I can't remember. Also lol remember when we used to do presidential elections???
Spoiler:


These screenshots are leftover from when Abby let me into her admin usergroup for 10 minutes to take screenshots. It was exciting because I was pink! (And look at me now! Full circle, apparently. Man, if I ever meet up with Abby again I have to show her I'm pink again even if she won't care LOL.) Slightly more interestingly than just my old profile and the staff page is maybe the who's online list. and the fact that i used to use dark themes? whoa crazy. also lol site admins.
Spoiler:




Hopefully someone else remembers the context of this a little better but like, I think way back when we modded Morkula in Webmaster's Discussion, some of the regulars of the forum rioted bc we didn't pick some other user. So in retaliation every single admin put themselves in Webmasters Discussion as a mod. I don't think anyone won that argument. "I got in a fight with the entirety of a dying forum and all I got was this screenshot". There's some really old usernames in here, lol.
Spoiler:


When we upgraded to some vBulletin 3.x version, they added usernotes and we had absolutely no idea what to do with them. So mine, uh, turned into this. (Note the pagecount. It was all spam.) Eventually we ended up using them for big warnings so the juxtaposition of how spammy all the staff notes were compared to general users was funny (until some ex-staff started getting big warnings and then it was just awkward oops.) This screenshot was taken much later (prob 2009ish) but the dates are 2004 so i'm putting it here.
Spoiler:


c. 2006-2008
HQ was srs bsns.
Spoiler:



I used to proudly mod HQ but you could only see it if you could actually access HQ. :(
Spoiler:


c. 2009-2013
Anyone wanna see some reputation rankings? I dunno why I screencapped these. Maybe it was before nuking it the last time or something? Who knows! Look at me, most popular admin, i guess. How TF was mewthree so high.
Spoiler:


Lol remember when we had a Tabletop Gaming forum? It took us way too long to nuke the never-used other cards forum so it became that for a while.
Spoiler:


I take banning very seriously.
Spoiler:


Once Audy hardcoded in millions of notifications for me and then??? went to bed??? and I was stuck with this for 24 hours and it was the worst day of my life 0/10 do not recommend
Spoiler:


One time Patchisou!Nick moved the moderator guidelines into the pixel art forum by accident...? And tried to call someone out for it and then we looked up mod logs and it was him.
Spoiler:


We removed name changes for a long time and I guess I was getting "name change kit" ads on the thread which was great. Guess we should've just charged $17.95 for them instead of taking them away entirely??? Some of you chronic name changers would be so broke by now if we had.
Spoiler:


Other
This is not technically PC because it never happened but once i was making a Probopass theme and everyone veto'd it but I just wanted to let you guys know what you were missing out on. Cowards.

Found a few more on an old backup.

We used to be excited about embedding YouTube videos on our profiles, before you could replace your profile pic with them. Also remember when YouTube embeds looked like that? Hella retro.
Spoiler:


The graveyard of features we started when I was on staff.


We once had this really really awful admin called mewthree.
Spoiler:


idr the context of this one but it has a retro Erica theme so


I liked writing rules threads once upon a time.
Spoiler:


Fun things related to one of my favorite people I met on PC


Once I banned Jorfe with a really inappropriate message and I don't remember why


... no clue what this is about


One time we woke up to find the forums were broken and you weren't able to view any threads. BUT you could still post new threads. So we started a bunch of threads in the mod lounge and used the titles to communicate. Good times.

That day right there is the one I broke and stopped being the polite quiet dude I once was and became this. Literally that day. One of my fondest memories.

Anyway, remember when we were all adults?
