Old GoPets Posts

Post by niquae on Sun Sep 05, 2010 7:18 pm

I confess, sometimes if I see a post that I like, I'll copy and paste it somewhere to save it. I am going through my Google Notebook where I came across a letter that twistic's pets would have written in order to get their owner to return to GoPets (after a long hiatus):

Cute idea! Though a letter from my pets would me more like this-
Twistic-
What the heck is wrong with you? You haven't been on in a month. Do you know what it's like to scavenge food from other people's desktops for a month? We don't think so. Is this the way you get your sick kicks? By creating us adorable creatures and then letting us rot in a poorly decorated desktop while starvation consumes our poor, adorable bellies? We're already drawing straws on who gets to eat Malice's spring butterfly. And we're so bored that we emptied out your IKU box for you, just for something to do. Not that there was much in there, you freakin' hermit. It's also January, and we can't even get into our Haunted House without you. So cold... so hungry... why....?
Love, Malice, Dismay, Agony and Iniquity.
Not THAT'LL spawn some guilt.


Has anyone else any old posts that they have saved? Smile

That's pretty cute!

I'm more of an image saver. I love to save graphics images. Also I saved some links to a few how-to threads but I can't get to them anymore because I only saved the links, not the text.

It would have been nice if the forum could have been offloaded and archived somewhere for players to look at later.

Yes, isn't it? Very Happy That's why I loved it so much I had saved it somewhere. I think I might have some more posts squirreled away - or maybe not. Like Gankaku, I mostly saved images. They were so much easier to save away than copy/pasting a favorite post.

Do you want to know what's funny, but embarrassing? A few days before the Gopets forum closed down, I saved every single web page that I have ever posted in. I had a few thousand posts. Embarassed I'm sorry, but I felt like saving them because of the memories. I thought, "If we can't play Gopets anymore, we might as well get as many posts, pictures, and videos as we can before it's gone." Right now, I'm pondering that. We should do the same thing in real life, you know? I barely ever take pictures anymore. I don't have a diary, unless you consider Twitter to be one! Rolling Eyes It's rather depressing to me. My new goal is to start a diary from this moment on. I have a month to get started because I'm almost seventeen! That's seventeen years of my life that wouldn't be documented. Crying or Very sad Haha, I sound like I'm going through a midlife crisis, don't I? Neutral

You saved all the GoPets pages... Do you think you could upload them somehow? Embarassed

P.S. Diaries are great! Make sure you keep it! Smile

Smile I would love to post a bunch of them! I didn't save every single Gopets page, though. I saved every page I posted in. I hope you know what I mean. If I somehow saved every Gopets page from the forum, it would have taken me a year! Laughing I didn't have a year to do that, sadly... Seriously, though, just saving my few thousand posts took me FOREVER! I made sure I did it, though! Wink The good thing about that is, it has a lot of other people's posts, too. Smile Do you guys know how to upload those? I'm not sure how. Do I just upload them to megaupload or something? Question They're all html files.

I think the easiest way would be to zip them all into one file and torrent them.

If you don't know how to do that, I can explain! Later, though. Smile

Or zip them and upload them to megaupload would probably work too, I'm sure.

Has anyone tried archive.org or other similar types of sites? I dunno if it'll work, but it's worth a try? ^^;

I'd recommend mediafire for uploads, and if you register, I don't think your files will disappear after a certain amount of time either.

*edit* I used a little add-on in firefox to try to revive the forum, but only the archive.org link got me any results:

Even as plain text, ah, the memories! ;^;

Thanks so much for the archive link. It brought back fond memories. It was lovely to see the old GoPets forum again as stripped down though it was. Smile

Yea, true, i still remember most of the members and their posts/events/custom works too. Kinda sucks with the lack of images ^^;

Though I *did* dig through the forums before they closed to grab all the photos I could find of RL GoPets stuff; the vans, the plush, the studio. I think there was a mascot outfit too, rofl XD If you're interested I could just upload them and link them here ^^;

Yeah, that'd be great. I'm sure others who drop by occasionally would love to see them too. Smile

Wow. Those pictures were great! Thanks so much for uploading them!

I didn't remember the computer pictures so I was happy to see those. The van was so nicely painted! And I remember waiting and hoping that we'd have baby GoPets soon. *sigh*

I wonder what happened to that van...if anyone's seen it in their neighbourhood, take pics! XD

I wanted the baby GoPets too, so cute *-* The test server was so much fun to snoop around in~

You're welcome, no problem :3 Now I'm trying to find some old files to upload and share; I found some cute flash animations that were old cell phone screen savers you could download online.

If only GoPets held out for a couple more years, I remember seeing a GoPony concept art/model somewhere, with all those crazy MLP fans *and* the customizable pet & clothing, it'd've been a big hit I think XD [Gotta see if I saved that pic somewhere or not ^^;]
