If you happen to look at your bookmarks, you may notice that bookmarks are appearing backwards, showing ancient threads first and newer threads last, which is a neat opportunity for recollection.

For instance, I found a thread where I was asking for advice on my then-adopted cat, who's now eight years old(and still just as temperamental).

Then:

Now:

What's some neat ancient threads you've found as a result?

    I don't use bookmarks so I haven't done any deep dives like that

    Here's a fun highlight: the fifteen year old Ace Combat thread still being used today.

    First thread I have bookmarked was LewieP's Mummy painting stuff.

    Then old toy threads, now a deserted wasteland of broken image links.

    My oldest one is a Growlanser Retrospective from 2007, I'd say half the images still work.
    (If you count photobucket watermarks...)

    I only ever bookmark threads on accident when my phone bumps the gold star while scrolling

    But I had to browse through some old Homestuck threads recently to find something that my post history doesn't display correctly anymore (thanks to the power of Vanilla eating all that every time a Holiday forum happens) and hoo boy was that a blast from the past

    Most of my old bookmarks are game threads in GnT, which I don't think would be that interesting to look back on.

    I looked at an old webcomics thread and all the images are broken.

    Those are actually some of my favorites, especially users who aren't here anymore.

    I feel like you’re either a Felix with exactly 6 carefully curated, active bookmarks, or you’re an Oscar with 20+ pages of bookmarks dating back a decade and a half.

    Very little middle ground.

    One of my oldest bookmarks is apparently the g&t “free to a good home” thread.

    Which, I bet if we started another one of those here there’d be some weird/neat stuff.

    I'm pretty sure the "weird/neat stuff" is the reason the "share things you bought" threads got locked.

    If I'd known ten years ago we'd get this bug I would have bookmarked some absolutely heinous shit for posterity

    but let's face it, most of the really good/bad stuff pre-dates the Vanilla transition.

    I've been trying in vain to find some of my favorite threads, namely, and I quote, "is tidus gay?", "look at this BEAR", and this massive write-up debating which Sailor Senshi were the best.

    My oldest bookmarked thread is the growing old thread, which I suppose is fitting. Maybe I should go back in there and complain about the young'uns.

    It is scary that I knew exactly which post you are talking about instantly despite that being many years ago.

    Yeah I don't bookmark anything and just kind of slide from thread to thread. I think you used to be able to see a history of your own posts and I wish that was still available cause I couldn't remember where I asked a particular question.

    I am in the business of saving lives.
