OC ReMix in the past

Recommended Posts

I found out about OCR in its blue days. Dogpile showed me OCR when I typed in video game music. Trolled the site for years, finally joined the forums in 2005.

I also trolled this site for years. But that was after I registered.

I lurked for the most part of 2003 and joined the following year. And for some reason, that's the first time I've ever seen the site when it was orange haha. Sure has changed over these years.

I joined in the phpBB days, before the mass exile of the UnModders. I like the design the way it is, but it's too quiet around here now.

The old days. The good days. The blue days.

I always thought the blue layout felt a lot more...warm? Welcoming?

The white seems very 'modern' and all, but eh. Blue FTW.

Yep, I still miss the blue. Much more roomy and less "arctic".

I found it towards the end of '03, when it was still gloriously blue. I remember an initial fear that I had to download all the cool songs (on 56k, mind you) before they disappeared from the front page, lest they escape into the daunting blue oblivion.

There was also the enourmous banner at the top, crowded with our icons. I think it, as part of the layout, was very appropriate for the site. The current banner focuses on the logo, while the VG character is a minuscle part of the background. In late 2003, when I first came here, OCR's existence was acknowledged purely through it's remixes, whereas now the community has gained more focus.

On an-almost-but-not-quite irrelevant note, that archived page features the remixes that I first saw here. Neat.

Wonder how long before that sidebar issue is revisited...

Been here since 2001 or something, blue days for a long time anyway. Was forced to join when they made Unmod members only (wasn't that because of the immense amount of douchebagas that came in after an article innn... Egm? which magazine was that?)

What is miss most is the old school internet drama. Brought by people like Prot and Moggie (something to that extend) Is that guy still around under a different name?

Miss the asians threat :(

What I do like is people here becoming more like real life people, instead of weird flameready psychos that I treated like cartoon figures to laugh about. Serious, most of the old school gang were nothing more to me then 2D characters in my little amusement/being bored show :D

Actually, normal people were fun for 2 days or something.

Bring back Protricity!!!!!!!!

I remember the orange, I've been here quite awhile, mostly lurking. I liked the blue, but the grey works for me. It's streamlined and accessible.
