wondering if any females remember that girland website. I am not putting a .com at the end (or was it co.uk?) it was a big hit around… 1999, 2000… but I don’t know if it’s around anymore, and I don’t want to accidentally link you to a bad site.
it was based on a computer game they sold in the UK. I could have ordered it any time but back then I was 11 or 12 and thought $20 was wayy too expensive for a game. so I just had fun on the website. it was a forum type.
my username was AdviceGoddess. yeah that was a dumb one. but in the forums, where id answer people’s questions for hours… giving advice… I felt like the username gave me more clout as an advice-giver, as I gained badges etc. who knows if it really did make me look like I knew what I was talking about.
one time I earned so many points in the forums, they mailed me a free demo version of the Girland game. I waited months for it to arrive and I was so excited. but I was highly disappointed when that demo version didn’t really let you do much of anything at all. still 20 dollars was too high in my mind. I never got to play the full version of the game. but I miss using HTML in the forums, building pretty-looking “tables” (html tables I guess?) that I’d paste into each comment so each one was personalized the same way. beyond girland, I never dove into html again.
@Twi this memory of mine was sparked when I told you I have forgotten most of the HTML I knew. it was this girland website that got me familiar with it lol.)
so anyway, anyone else remember this site??? I miss the friends made there, though I absolutely forget everything about every single one of them!!! <3 praying for you all out there wherever you are
