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.

YWS baby has grown a lot since it started. Awesome progress. :)

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.
Suppose for a moment that the heart has two heads, that the heart has been chained and dunked in a glass booth filled with river water. The heart is monologuing about hesitation and fulfillment while behind the red brocade the heart is drowning. - R.S

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
Someone told me there's a girl out there, with love in her eyes and flowers, in her hair.

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

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