I Miss The Old Herpy

I miss easy navigation, a multitude of images and videos that will probably never be seen from again, and an overall good site. R.I.P. old herpy, and may you return to your full glory one day. :cry:
Mostly miss all the gifs and images I couldn't remember the name of, so I could search for my hope, and probably will never see the likes of again.

As Val said to me a while back, many users have the whole or most of the gallery, so it should be fine to upload everything again when we get a gallery up and going.

The site is far from finished, waffle. Early beta. Things are slow right now due to funds being short, but the gallery and other features will be seeing a return in time. Please have some patience and consider donating to the site to move things along. :)

Mate, navigation is far easier on this site. Old Herpy was many things, but the threads weren't neatly organised. I struggled to stay on the old site because of how clumsy it felt trying to find something. I have high hopes for the new site. Maybe a return of the dragon emojis? :D

And the colours! Black and red? So depressing!

Hm... I wonder about making some draggy and other reptile emojis. Might try that, though I'm not really a pixel artist.

Will anyone have bothered with saving the old emojis before the site went down, though?

What is with that? Is the link back to the main page as a placeholder? Is completion near? Much excite.

There are a few things that I do miss from the old site. one of those being the activity stream which I used to check each time I came on, quite useful to check what was going on without having to filter through all the subforums.
Another one was the dragon emojis which I thought were quite cool although I rarely used them myself.

Sadly though, the site was not without it's demons. One of the first things that comes to mind here was that bug in the software that sometimes caused some members profile screens including mine to go white. Another was the "poor me" (negitivity) epidemic in the blogs and in some threads, I remember not logging in for a period and then coming back and seeing the whinge fest in the blogs and then leaving again, I left twice before the site's closure due to this.

I got lucky in a way when the site closed as I was having a look at my introduction thread and still had the thread up when I was told about the closure by a friend who's also a member, what I did then was saved the page offline as something to remember it by.

Wish I'd been been able to save mine. Lot of memories from that thread I made.
