Just a topic for those who my have been on here for a while (or feel like they have been), with memories and thoughts of their eariler times and experiences on site. I have been a guest & member for a dozen years now, and have seen changes in the site and the people over that timeframe. A few examples follow;-

1) The Chat Rooms
The chatroom system was completely different when I first joined up. There were State based rooms, a Main/ General room, and on Friday and Saturday evenings there was also the Couples International room (Brsibane based adult club).
The State based rooms were usually busy enough by themselves, but the Main/ Gneral room was always chokka-block full - I have quite regularly seen it backed up to 3 individual rooms (100 people per room) and then some spare. Talking to others was never a problem, and I picked up many, many friendships along the way.
Bit of a different story compared to now, where you are lucky to see a handful and anyone actually talking much.

2) Sending & receiving flirts / emails.
In my earlier times on site, you could send communiction to almost anyone, and actually get a response - even a "thanks but no thanks" type - but at least it was a reply. No-one really got upset if you were just a little away from their 'wish-list", and would generally always be polite and friendly to one another.
Bit of a far cry from what is done now.

3) New Profiles
Yes, there used to be the odd 'fake' profile around then too, but nowhere near what it appears to be now.
I check out the new profiles as they come along now, and usually within 24 hrs, and mostly definitey within 48hrs, those profiles are no longer available. Underneath that heading it says 'please check again later', but, alas, later on they are still not available, and usually never become so.
New profiles of yesteryear usually were people who were real and actually interested to talk or meet up, and quite often would be found in the chat-rooms before too long to try and make their experiences realized.

Ok, over to all. What do you recall from your earlier experiences on site.

I've been here close to 7yrs now. I miss the WA state chat room used to be very social. Last minute get togethers for BBQ or pool party in summer.

These days people whisper hello and not sure why that has to be private.

It's just full of wank cams or 3 secs in and a private chat request comes up.

Much less of a taboo...

OP, in regard to your second point, I think internet dating in general has changed.

I remember when internet dating was in its fledgling state, 15-20 years ago. It was generally considered for use only by the ''desperate and dateless'', nobody would actually confess to being a member of one. I was a member of one around 2003 and the total number of people, men and women, who were members in the Northern Territory was only like 200 or some low number like that. Filter out who you didn't think sounded or looked your type and you maybe had 10-20 people you could message or receive messages from. I think this had the effect of people appreciating messaging more.

Fast-forward to now, and it seems every single person (and some in relationships) on the planet is now a member of at least one internet dating service. Even here in the Territory a filtered search (women between the ages of 40-60 within a 25 km radius of me) yields over 500 profiles. Changing my filter to men seeking women with the same other criteria yields over 2,100 results - and this is in Bumfuck Nowhere.

If all of the men are messaging all of the women at least part of the time, that's a lot of messages women are receiving. As is often talked about here in the forums, some women simply can't keep up with their inbox. There is also the simple fact that women can indeed knock you back for seemingly trivial difference.

It is a different beast now, and yes I think it was simpler way back when, but it is what it is now and we all just have to crack on.

Yes - I also found the people from WA very social and so easy to chat with. Miss them all very much.

@ OkeyDoke45

I hear what your saying, and broadly agree.

With regards to your 'filtered search' - how many of those 500 profiles would be active, though ? In my normal search in a larger age range of local women, there appears to be only around (an estimated) 80 women who are regularly active, from a much larger base.

Also, as mentioned by yourself as well as women in other forums, I understand some can get overwhelmed with responses at times. But an increasing number also do not seem to care about old fashioned manners.

Thanks for your input.

Chat rooms

Yes, I remember them way back then Tall. I do belive many have moved on to find their Adult Match makers. Shame as the chat rooms was certinally a great way to meet people, which I have and formed a few long lasting friendships.

.

I remember the old chat rooms, and the "forum regulars" seem to have gone through a few generations of change as well.

Probably the same number of forum spats over off-shoot friendship groups (funnily enough, the same arguments about it on here, were on more vanilla ones for other forums I'm on - same same but different)

ah the chat rooms




when i first joined the chatrooms were fabulous.

the banter was great. you got to know more about the essense of the people you were chatting; something you could never get off a profile and a series of messages.
most of the people i ever caught up with were off the back of chatroom conversations.

second time round, i went in a couple of times and it was unrecognisable.

I had the same experience with NZ dating, social meet ups, long chats and lots of fun. But the internet and internet dating has changed. I guess we were just lucky to be part of that unique time in internet history.

Agree the old chatrooms were very easy to find friends to talk to. Even during the mid-week days, you could usually easily find 100 - 150 people logged on. The Friday nights and weekends usually went ballistic - going through all the rooms there was easily around 500 +. Sad to see nowadays there is generally only a handful of people on, sometimes even less. Probably a number have moved on to other directions, but most of the ones I have known still have their profiles here (I know, easy to forget to worry about removing). Have seen the odd one still sneak a look in, but then disappear again for considerable time.

Funny you didn't mention the forums Tall...

Today is my twelfth year in here.

Gawd, I remember when every post had to be moderated. Then the time when all posts and even new topics could be posted without moderation... And now we have moderation on topics again and some people have moderation free posting. I've been blessed to have moderation free posting for nearly all of that time, and it can be a lot of fun, as long as I think before I click lol. Peachy

@Peachy...

I only named a few examples in my intro - it wasn't my intention to cover everything, otherwise there wouldn't have been any scope for others to come up with stuff. But also I did not get into the forums on my initiation - I only started in them about 5 or 6 years ago, so I don't know if there was any / much difference compared to what I know of them (I'm learning too).

Glad to see other forumites bringing up memories from the past too.

Topics are too moderated now. This has its good and bad points. There’s less diversity in topics as well which is a shame . People seem more inhibited to post.
