Which websites do you miss?

This got me thinking about various early internet sites and even more recent ones which have died. Be curious which you all miss.

used to have one when I was 14 called Jookie’s Bollocks, it was geocities and was packed full of ‘funny’ stuff that I’d found online

It’s a big miss

I remember having an IT lesson at school where the (middle aged, male) teacher was teaching us how to use some WYSIWYG website builder and said “try to make it interesting! For example, if you wanted to talk about swimming, you could have a picture of a fish with ‘guess who swims like a fish?’ under it, and when you click on it it takes you to a page that says ‘Mark!’”

That man was such a fud.

Project Rockstar (the online band management game)

It was great and had a strong community until Rockstar Games lawyers decided to shut it down despite the site owners offering just to completely rename/rebrand the site.

Still there, but not the go-to it once was.

Blimey, looks like this is still current, but with a homepage design from 20 years ago.
