    Earliest index is from 2001 - however it seems you cannot see the threads :(

    If someone can find a way to access archives of them, please post! But until then, you can see what Uhall used to look like (if you werent about then!) and some of the people posting, as well as what people would rave about :D



    Also for Europa players - heres a few links

    Interesting for me is how many threads were updated every day!

    We need to find the old uo.com boards. Man there was a pic I had up with some ideas for new items.. a few have made it in-game (ankh pendant for one!)

    ...

    The 2001 version is the second UHall. I guess none of the ORIGINAL one still exists... THAT would be the one I would want the archives to.

    What was the address for it? I just looked for boards.stratics.com then did Uhall

    I was only around from early 2001 so I never saw it :(

    ...

    It was before the boards.stratics.com address as the boards were part of the main site back when it was still UOSS.

    I tried one of the OLD addresses (uoss.stomped.com) but that one didn't work... not recalling the later-pre-change name address though.

    Used to be a threaded-only, no post-bump board that reset every night at midnight (Central), and had the UOSS menu bar on the left hand side instead of on a seperate page so that the more basic questions would INEVITABLY lead to the reply of:

    <------------

    Or some variation thereof.

    Also, there was no registration or even mods at the time, and usually in the late night hours (for US), the Euro players would hop on and the first several threads would be in Danish or Swedish, or whatever language from that general area.

    Lot different board back then.

    I've used archive.org many of times to go on nostalgic trips. I managed to find my old news posts as an Atlantic Reporter from 04 in the Stratics archive though :D

    I use Archive.org a lot for cross-referencing things on UOGuide. It's a fairly invaluable source some times.

    Problem with all old UO stuff is that the nostalgy kicks in... I mean remembering how active and livly everything was, players EVERYWHERE, tons of action, tons of ppl to play with etc.

    Then you log in and see what's left of it. 5x more land but 5x less players. Atleast on the shards I play on... Makes ya kinda sad.

    Fluffi was the shaven-headed leather-clad and maybe also tattooed biker.

    Funny to see that people were complaining about new items and wanting a classic shard way back then.

    They did ask a lot more questions back then though. Now we are expected to look everything up or hear the wrath of petra.
