Behold The First Layout

Thumbnail2Remember back when I was being nostalgic about old layouts when the 6th layout was released? Remember I was pining for a supposedly non-existent screenshot of the elusive Layout 1? Well guess what. I have found one.

I found it while traversing Wikipinia one lazy day. I found, in my User hierarchy, an old list of websites I hosted, with other information about them such as launch date. Upon opening Four Island's page, I gasped in amazement as I saw, staring at me, the long-sought after screenshot of Layout 1. :)

I can't believe how much Four Island has changed since that. Does this site even slightly resemble the one in that screenshot? Plus, back then, I knew a lot less about blogs. I even remember thinking that posting once a day is too much. Now I'm concerned about posting too little. :)

You may notice a discrepancy in that screenshot. As you know, The Fourm wasn't released until March 30th 2008. However, the third layout was enacted December 3rd 2007 and there's a link in that screenshot entitled "Fourms". Well, Four Island did have a fourm before Layout 3. It ran miniBB fourm software (which was a mistake because that resulted Four Island being blocked from a certain place for a long time) that wasn't that good. It was removed October 22nd 2007.

I haven't updated my Wikipinia user pages since forever, but there's a lot of interesting information in there. For instance, the original release date of Color Pencils was April 27th 2008, even though everyone thinks it's May 5th 2008. Weird. :)

Woah, you've kept teh same background! :D Lol. Four Island sure has changed a lot, except for the background, which I think you should keep for nostalgia stuffeses. :) And I'm back from Malaysia, so I'll blog about it soon!

And March 5th is also the birthday of my cat, which is also weird. :D

Actually, if you look closely, you'll see that the background in that screenshot is actually different from the background we have now. This is the background picture in the screenshot, and this is the current one. Plus, we have day+night now, which we didn't have before. :)

And yay for the birthday of your cat! :)
