What used to be "Realrates BBS" on Yuku is now...

A company called TapaTalk apparently bought out Ezboard/Yuku. This is the shell of Janet Ruhl's old Realrates BBS discussion forum.

Really kind of interesting how these things change. I just used the forgot password function and logged in as "Goddard Bolt".

Kind of odd they would keep it out there since it's obvious the last posts were many years ago.

BTW, I see Goddard's handsome pic associated with his ID. I forgot there was a time before the Gorn's T-Rexx ate you.

Many user icons stayed the same. For instance, TRexx's Rexx teddy bear icon is there. I noticed that the migration trashed most people's signature blocks if they used basic HTML in their sigs. The tags are interspersed with text.

I bet they just did a wholesale migration of all of their boards as part of the buyout. The content attracts members. Who knows, maybe someone will come back and start using the board again after 15 years. :P

I'm really happy I moved this site off of Yuku years ago.

what a sad, nostalgic view of things.

*sigh*


I see my posts from almost twenty years ago.
