Things that we all did everyday on old DiS but have now totally forgotten


#1

I’ll start

  • CRICKET
  • threadsmash
  • Autofill replies and Autofill threads

#2

Mum jokes


#3

Isn’t it weird that we used to have a little space for a title for the post


#4

^this


#5

:'D


#6

I miss this, above all.


#7

No, your mum jokes.


#8

Make each other really upset with aggressive posturing


#9

Remember how some people didn’t know about the threadsmash button and thought people were just typing threadsmash for the hell of it.

234 days since a Diser …

Seems weird now that literally everyone used to have several accounts. A rogue moderator made me one once for the craic, and there was a tool called ‘possible pseudonmys’, which i guess just listed accounts with matching IPs. Virtually all the regular posters had five or six accounts (some of them weren’t joke accounts either). DOTS had about 25. cat-race had about 60. Foley had over 150. How did we hold down jobs?


#12

85%

(as in “like 85% of personal anecdote threads on DiS, this is craven boastfulness disguised as angst”)


#13

Sexism


#14

Foley’s accounts were impossible to keep track off, but that was part of the fun.


#15

Finishing a long post with PAT


#16

I think my lowest point was creating a ‘jude’ account so I could reply with ‘hey’ to @meths in a post he’d made about the Beatles. I think he’d just put ‘hey jude’.

Good times.


#17

I wonder if the Paul Daniels/Debbie McGee threads are still up


#18

Huge fan of the AlanShearer account, and Mehodor’s Orange.


#19

I wrote a reply, but the boards ate it.

SEAN!!!

That’s the sort of commitment that new Dis is missing
