YWS Over The Years

It proves how old I am when I remember every single version in those screen shots! Thanks for starting this site Nate, and improving many of us considerably.
You poor take courage
You rich take care
This earth was made a common treasury
For everyone to share
All things in common
All people one
We come in peace
The orders came to cut them down

I will always remember the August 08 setup as the one I joined under! It's great to see where YWS came from, and I love where it's going.
A writer is a world trapped in a person— Victor Hugo
Ink is blood. Paper is bandages. The wounded press books to their heart to know they're not alone.

Ahhh I feel like a newb. I've only been around for the last two.

I've got so used to how YWS looks now that I'd forgotten how much it has changed! I've been around for those last five screen-shots, but it's odd looking at the earlier versions...
The light shines brightest in the darkest places.

Ohwow. I recognize most of those. I remember those days. Crazy stuff.

[Firearris] 10:45 pm: askes the guard for the weasel!
[Griffinkeeper] 10:45 pm: The guard gives Firearris the Weasel.
[Firearris] 10:46 pm: aquires the weasel and renames it "Cat"
Take that, Lumi.

I'm not so sure, but I think there was one around Oct/Nov 08. That was when I joined. With Bartimaeus (?) at the bottom.
'S good to see how much YWS has changed.
Pretending in words was too tentative, too vulnerable, too embarrassing to let anyone know.

Wow... I feel old now. Nothing compared to you 05ers, though. I didn't even really remember what it looked like until I saw the shots.
Need a critique?

I think I first found the site during the April 2008 design, but didn't join...then when I came back later, it was under construction, and I wasn't able to join until the new design was up.
There are two kinds of folks who sit around thinking about how to kill people:
psychopaths and mystery writers.
I'm the kind that pays better.

Aw, the version in the April 11, 2008 screenshot is the one I joined under. Whenever I see that site I get a little sentimental. I love where YWS is now and where it's going, but that site holds a special place in my heart <3

Wow, I hardly even knew YWS was this old! How many people have been around since the beginning?

Those screenshots bring back a lot of memories.
I feel old now. Thanks for posting all these, Nate!

This is my perfunctory "You don't have a screen shot of the notebook theme WAAAAAAAAH" complaint.
P.S. And yes, I did read your new post. Excuses, excuses... almost a year of YWS history, undocumented by front page screen shots!

I did find this interesting! I actually was thinking the other day -- no, but really, I think you get the point.
