Neocities has a lot of interesting shit, it's basically a revival of Geocities - completely free, too, if you feel like getting your own.


I might have a site on there, too, but that's not what I'm linking, so I'm technically within the rules. Suck it, nerds.

Whole lotta love for Neocities in this thread, excellent!!!

The basic HTML revolution is certainly just around the corner!

Back with more :)


https://uncyclopedia.ca/https://uncyclopedia.co

The entertaining version of Wikipedia, some articles are very funny!


https://validator.w3.org/nu

Checks HTML code for errors, though it doesn't spot all, which is very annoying when it doesn't spot a simple typo that breaks everything.


https://webdesignmuseum.org

Cool site for seeing how things looked like back in the day, I was surprised some websites looked more like games then!


https://francaisfacile.com

Quizzes and explanations of things about the French language, looks pretty old. At the top there are links to other languages but pretty much everything is in French, I failed pretty hard on a quiz about English because I didn't understand what the French meant.


https://infobyip.com

Info about Ips and domain names, not 100% accurate on location though, it says I'm in Africa..


https://frenchconjugation.com

Very useful information for learning how French words conjugate.

Yeah, web design used to be so much more diverse and fun back then. I'm hoping we can get back to that soon with services like Neocities being a viable alternative to template-site services like Wix.

I really miss skeuomorphism. Maybe I should take another trip to Neocities and consider making something maybe since I hear a lot of good things about it, and I hear it's free as well!

Too bad trends are very fickle things. Even if Skeuomorphism would make a comeback, do you honestly thing it would actually LOOK OK on our modern computer monitors compared to the ones used back then?

I don't see why it would look worse on modern monitors, having better capabilities than older ones. Some gloss and shadows to make things look less dull wouldn't hurt. Wouldn't you say Windows 7 looks more appealing than Windows 10? Sure, maybe some flat design is good sometimes to minimize distraction, but the amount of flatness in Windows 10 makes it very unappealing to me.

Unsure if this one really counts as a site, but give the Super Dimension Fortress a look.

It's a public-access UNIX system that's been going since 1987, you can sign up for free, and they give all their users free webspace and gopherspace (Yes, Gopher's still a thing).
