Gotta admit you guys, I've been looking through pages and pages of Milk history recently for drama and some parts made me so glad it is the way it is now and some parts make me a little bit jealous of you guys who have been around from the start. Through the good and the bad it must have helped everyone grow up.
oh dear god, this thread brings back memories. i remember:
• voy forums: abc, bc annora, mg, inc. sassy sisters, asotv • when people used to write paragraphs upon paragraphs on adoption applications • the aim babyz chats • when people used to write literally paragraphs upon paragraphs on adoption apps • CLOSE YOUR TAGS!!! • taggies for your name on the voy forums • the bc wars (all the fights, lmao) • speaking of fights, people hating me because i was a brat! going under different identities all the time and people hating me even more lmfao. • straight-haired babyz • the abc website because it had so much stuff • lots of the old people - sue @ abc, carolyn, jesslyn & megan @ mischief gang, amber @ vbz, stevie, dan (the first guy that ever really joined the bc), woofy, lindz, ashley & mande @ babyz express, when lacey went by "piper", hannah & becca (the sisters), laura...the list goes on! • i also remember there was a girl named ninette that was really good friends with lindz. apparently she died & then someone found out that she really didn't and it was a big deal at the time. • the anti-abuse banners • botb, botm
Y'know I think it might be kinda neat if long adoption apps came back XD It might be kinda fun once in a while! I wouldn't enjoy all the fierce competition and pressure that probably came with it but if it became a thing people did once in a while it might be fun XD I'm wondering what kind of things people actually wrote in their apps though Or better yet if anyone actually has any old apps they did XD
Ninette was my first ever online friend. We met in 2002, and we were super close. But as We joined the ABC forum, she would get angry at me whenever I would talk to any of my other online friends, and we had a falling out over it. I still never got the entire story, but I know that a “rip ninette” was posed on her old website raspberry babyz, and we all thought she was actually dead. I literally wrote lamentuous poetry over it. I felt so guilty! I have actual real life poetry. She told me months later that her friend irl had posted that, but to this day I don’t know what really happened. I often wish I was still in communications with her, we were 12 and 13 so we’ve grown up a lot since then.
Linty! I was just thinking about her the other day. I absolutely adored her! And Leya from babyz boulevard. I think about them a lot. They were my closest friends for a good while. Oh, and Carrie from Rugratz.
Watermelon D*light and uhmm I think it was CK Nursery were two of my other faves.
ABC was obviously amazing and I yearn for geocities to make a come back.
We were all assholes too so, there's that. 😂
But Bernard (my husband) is like constantly in disbelief that after all these years and being 30, I still care about this game. And I tell him that sooooo many of you are my original friends. Tons of friends have come and gone irl but I literally grew up with sooooo many of you. Like that's why I'll forever stay. The game is still cute and I loooove how creative I can be with the game, but I've known a lot of you for most of my life. That's why it's forever important to me. Lol
Ugh. I get so sentimental about the old BC. I get more sentimental about the old BC more than anything else. I am almost literally emotionless with other things like SO GLAD THATS OVER but not growing up in the BC. Sooooo glad I was able to do that.
I miss AIM chats with you, Stormie. And everyone else.
