"I think what keeps drawing me here is the "community". The same fuckes that piss me off are often the same ones that are super helpful to me in TT/Old School/etc. It's a weird love/hate relationship I have with this site, but to me, it's really unique in the webosphere, to me. Plus, I'm just here to keep the "diversity" up. I also like the random humor that comes up from time to time. Can't wait to see how this site looks when we're all in our 80's."


Took the words out of my mouth. All of that applies to me.

It's too bad so many people are signing up, but never posting. It could make the forums fun if the noobs would actually post.

Maybe one day TWW will be cool again with the young folks. Like vinyl records.

Yes I said the word vagina, which means Big4Cunty gets to be creepy.


Also the words: Centipedes, my, likely, and think trigger the same response.

Even though I have mostly lurked for the past 16yrs, I do feel the sense of community here. You assholes are my imaginary college friends that are my connection back to my college past.

message boards shouldn't be totally done away with, imdb for instance needs to bring theirs back...yes there was plenty of garbage on there but being able to ask questions/discuss a specific movie was an important part of their site

Was anyone here ever a member of accboards.com? That one sort of fell apart and was moved to what is now scout.com. I miss that board. It was way better than scout.

god this place is confusing

do you think there are similar sites at other universities?

I run a thing small-time for campus discussion on my own computer in my dorm but I've gotten curious if there is anyone out there running something too!

^It isn't confusing, it is just a message board. And there did used to be some other boards run off the same server that looked the same, only with different colors. One of them was called "Party 49ers" and you had to be enrolled at UNC Charlotte to get a free membership.

Not sure that was run off the same server, but it was CrazyWeb. It was the so-called PartyInCollege / CampusBlender network.

^It's interesting that most of the community that CampusBlender / PartyInCollege sought to create has been vacuumed up by other, big, online social platforms. . . I still prefer the home-brewed taste of places like this!

It seems that not a lot of people have the motivation to create interesting communities online anymore, however. . .

I love the format. I love the communities. But people are never very willing to join; a message board just feels too old and passed. . . I'd love to cultivate something creative and clever and welcoming, however!

That's pretty much been said over and over in this thread. Most of us have no clue who most of the people on here are. There have been some pretty entertaining topics started in these forums that are not topics that need to be discussed on facebook, or twitter where a lot of people actually know you.

TWW has history. In its glory days, there were threads that actually influenced events in the real world.

News 14 Closings
Anita Flick Nudes
Police Blotter Hijincks
The Jury Selection Fiasco

The list goes on, hell I cant even recall at this point

^^LOL! I joined that one too right after it was started. He set it up so that you couldn't post links to tww. Anytime you typed http://www.thewolfweb.com it wouldn't appear in the post. Any other website on the internet could be linked to there though.

I wonder what accounts for who stays here and who leaves. Obviously a lot have left. Some of them died, so they have an excuse. But more, presumably, "moved on with their lives." What confuses me is that...so did the rest of us. There's a lot of married people on TWW. There's a lot of people with kids, homes, and nice careers on TWW. Yes, they may have a connection to the much-touted community of this site - but so did all the big-time posters who left.

I dunno, I'm probably overthinking it. Simple attrition probably accounts for the whole thing. But to me it's still a more interesting question than "Why don't new people join?," the answers to which strike me as pretty cut and dried.

I love TWW in all its old-timey shittiness. It has given me a lot. I'm sad to see its decline, both for its own sake and because I'll never get the chance to be an elder statesman of a bustling forum, the way some of those early TWW-celebrities seemed to me.

I think some people just reached their breaking point when this place was overrun by bubs & company's takeover and the powers that be just letting it go. You can only go so long before it's not worth your time. And it killed any interest from what could have been new membership. And on top of that, Facebook and Reddit started being the place for the content and discussion people wanted.

I just come back in hopes of MSPaint threads returning to their former glory.

^This! Myspace kicked off the social networking era of the internet and then it was followed by facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. Those places let you host as many photos as you want for free. TWW allows a max of 50 photos for free. People are more interested in social networks now. And I do think message boards often fail when the original members start to grow older and move on in life. ACC Boards, Fan Home, Big Hoops, and Big Politics have all gone away. Even before they totally closed down the sites there had drop offs in daily traffic.

people on here can be pretty mean/unnecessarily hostile. Reddit feels like sunshine and rainbows compared to tww, for better or for worse. also, I think a lot of people still lurk - when the site was in jeopardy of being shut down a lot of them spoke up for the first time in a while.

As sappy as this sounds, I miss the community of the glory days. Ya wed bitch and yell and troll each other over politics, but we had a lot of fun and wacky adventures. And there was a sense of community. Im glad I was here during those years---under a few names.

On a side note

I just wish we could have another tunnel painting event. Those were fun. I missed the first one when there were about 20, or 30 people there.

^^^ Damn, how did I not know about that? I have been at LSU now for 3 years, but never saw it written or mentioned anywhere. I will get right on it!
