There's plenty of heritage here alright! Long live YWS :)

I'm such a junior compared to you guys btw, lol xD
But I do love the site equally as much <3
It's not about the weight of what's spoken.
It's about being heard.

*stares at old YWS*

You know, I thought I would miss it, but I don't so much. The new one makes me happy. :smt004

I have only been here for the '11 version since June and Apollo. *Stares at comparatively old people.*
Actually, I joined two days after my birthday. I think I found the site on my birthday.

I really did like the clean professional look of the 4.0 AKA Jan 2011. The current homepage is good, though I still prefer the old 2011 homepage style.
Though, you should keep the snazzy orange YWS as a style option like how there were style options pre-Apollo. I really love this portal theme. It's so snazzy and cool! :D

I still remember the 2008 one, when profiles were guestbooks and you could fill comments full of happy faces that turned into robots.

Oh the times, the times.

Wow I feel new seeing this then, and now.
Whether it be a madman or mastermind, I have played the roles of many. I played the dashing hero, the victim, and evil villain. I am how you treat me, your greatest ally or your worst nightmare.

So I ask you, will you serve in Heaven or Rule in Hell?

That's brilliant! Seeing the 2009 layout reminds me of my newbie days xD

Wow! Nostalgia. And so many names here, who don't come on anymore.

I *almost* forgot we had a staff picks section.
