    I was into pixel dolls and on one of the forums this girl made a Mana doll and posted a link to the live Ju te Veux performance (not sure how, bc i think this was pre-youtube)

    I probably found scape right after that.

    Hey, new here as well. I found the scene as a youngster and was quite strongly influenced by it. While I grew past the phase in a matter of years, I wouldn't be the same person if I hadn't found this stuff. The CDs are still on the shelf and although I haven't actively followed J-rock stuff for a long time, I occasionally take a CD and reminisce; perhaps to also test whether any of it speaks to me like it used to. Hmm, I still have a stack of magazines somewhere in a box too...
    I'm increasingly repelled by the modern internet, so I was intrigued to find this very light-weight and classic looking forum which to me represents what social media was like when it was still fun and about the actual users. I got completely hooked on reading some threads so I set up an account to be used via an era-appropriate computer (again, thanks for keeping the forum light-weight and classic!)

    Looks can be deceiving, under the hood this is just some modern-ish software I bought from some company ::gaku::
    If you want the real retro experience, apparently they're still developing phpBB which is what we started out with.

    Welcome aboard anyway ::meev::

    Thanks!

    Well yeah I've just noticed that there are some hover-over actions that are clearly modern, and, attached pictures open a bit slowly because it's a popup overlay rather than the old "open just the .jpg in a new window" like it probably once was! But overall, the forum works surprisingly smoothly and it's not bloated by too much interactive junk, background scripts or a phone-like UI that makes everything look way too large ::bleh:: So if it works, don't fix it – big thumbs up from here.

    I'd love to return to phpBB forums, it's just that most forums have been left to die and the communities have dispersed. Not sure how to discover old style forums, other than by blindly searching for various topics, hoping that there's still activity, and hoping that they haven't bloated the interface. A good ol' link hub would be handy, but I doubt that anyone puts together sites like that anymore.
