Geocities was not a website; it was a hosting platform for websites that users built for free. And it was around much earlier than 2009. I think it launched sometime in the mid to late 90s.
Sometimes I miss the early days of the web, when it was all kooky, extremely amateur-looking Geocities and Angelfire pages built by freaks and geeks to indulge their random and often very bizarre interests. Remember Peter Pan Guy? Or that site devoted exclusively to pics of people with mullets?

R89, Connexion was a great and terribly underrated site, obviously also in terms of visits. It had the bones of a gay LinkedIn, a website that connected gay professionals, which I thought was a very helpful angle. I thought it had lots of relevancy. But then it went the way of many other gay themed sites that couldn't make ends meet by just displaying more or less flashy ads.
Is there another website that has taken the connect-gay-professionals space? Or is it really just LinkedIn now?

I loved how the site, back then, covered any show and series with any kind of gay content. Even foreign shows like the German daily soap Verbotene Liebe. Then Glee came along and it was the beginning of the end where fangirls gave the site so many clicks that the owners could sell it off for a profit and the new owners destroyed it making it more about fangirl shipping than the shows with actual gay content.

Or his snarky nostalgia posts about stuff from the late 80s and early 90s. The site's shade throwing, using official press releases, got a bit dull though. Don't know if that's because it done now by guest writers.
However, I have to admit that I am kind of proud of myself for resisting the morbid urge to check Perez's site.

Another vote for Gawker. Even before they went under Gawker became very mean - not the "fun" bitchy in it's hey day

Yahoo was really the grim reaper for good internet ideas. They had GeoCities, a place for people to build online profiles or topical user generated websites. They had Yahoo Photos. Imagine a website where you can post or store your own pictures online. They had Yahoo Live where you post videos or live feeds. And then there was Yahoo Briefcase where you could store files online. Have you ever heard of such things? Right? Those are all dead ends. What internet user would want those things?

[quote]R126 The imdb message boards are linked below. Someone grabbed everything, so all the threads from the beginning of imdb are there and new threads constantly. Just do a search for the movie or show you want to discuss.
Unfortunately, they weren’t able to grab “everything” because IMDb self scrubbed its message boards a few times over the years while the boards were still up and running.
But Movie Chat has captured a lot of what remained there at the end [bold] : ) [/bold]And we can add topics and posts like in the old days - there just won’t be as wide an audience responding.

R167 Every single show and movie I ever commented on dating back to the early 2000's is there, including my comments from that time. I have yet to find anything from the beginning that isn't there, and it does stay pretty current. When a new movie or show airs, the posts are already starting when I look it up.

...and others. I miss all this gay webcams of the early 00’s. Their radio shows and message boards and all the fan mayhem. It seems quaint technologically now, but at the time it felt so futuristically interactive.

You're thinking of DAMON Kruezer of "Kreuzeratnight.com," R109. You probably confused him with David Forrest because they both blogged about gay porn stars.
Fortunately, Kreuzer's reputation as a cyberstalker and broke cyber-terrorist spread, so the gay porn industry stopped cooperating with him. He may have run into legal problems, too, as he was committing many crimes.
Unfortunately, Kreuzer discovered Datalounge during the Brent Corrigan/ Bryan Kocis murder scandals and began participating in threads here and even re-publishing some on his blog.
I believe Kruezer became one of our regular, mentally ill trolls and still lurks here. Lots of manic stalker threads, like those of Charmie or Pete Buttigieg and horror movies smack of Kreuzer.

bettybowers.com (which started the first year of GW Bush) was much funnier and gayer than its present incarnation. Devan Green is fine, but her videos about Republican corruption are a bit obvious and liberal smug. I miss the separate pages for the Betty Bowers Ministries: "B.A.S.H. = Baptists Are Saving Homosexuals, B.I.T.C.H. = Bringing Integrity To Christian Homemakers S.L.U.T.S. = Saving Love Until The Sacrament, The "A Very Ramsey Christmas" TV Special, Sound Clips of Whitney Houston singing "Girl, We Got Some X!" (sounding like Marsha P. Johnson) and Whitneys'"Too Rich For Crack" Tour to benefit Betty's Christian Crackwhore Ministry.

It was one of the very first gay porn web sites I subscribed to in the mid 90's. Now the domain is for some jewelry site. I wonder if the current owners know of its' past.

The old purple.com. It was a purple screen with a few hidden links (in the same shade of purple) with information about the color purple

R171 funny that they included Fess Parker on that Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians site, because there was an episode of THE GOLDEN GIRLS where they pointed out several times that Dorothy looks like Fess Parker in heels. XD

How is Queerty still a thing? The writers seem like they're still in high school and there's no copy editing on the site. The owners are reportedly white supremacists/misogynists. It should be cancelled.

There was a website by a funny and wicked woman who called herself “Princess Natalie” IIRC. She was a sort of demanding sugar baby and doninatrix and would berate men and demand they send her money and presents. She lived on CA or Nevada and complained about the Mexicans. She had a quiz called “Are You A Lopez?” I don’t know, I guess you had to see it. It sounds horrible but it was funny. I remember laughing out loud and wondering if she was serious.
There was also a BDF guy Jon who had an early blog called “Prehensile Tales”. I had a bit of a crush on him.
