a lot of people talk about the GeoCities aesthetic but i 100% honestly think it's high time we move away from that and start talking about the Y2Kweb™ aesthetic because it's [chef's kiss]

@sc makes me think of n (the game) and winamp skins
@sc oh wow this is gorgeous
@sc that second screenshot is ridiculously nice; I would gladly make it so that every future interface I use looks like that
@sc oh my god that second one looks like a ROM site I used in 2003
@sc shit I forgot this was a thing
I see your point now
fuck that's choice
@sc This is giving me pleasant flashbacks to my first personal website
@sc are these plain HTML or Flash?
@grainloom first one is Flash, last three are plain jane HTML
@sc We just need to do this but with readable text.
@sc I registered on 81dojo to play Shogi online and it looks quite Y2K
@sc yes yes yes yes yES YES YES
@sc I was such a k10k person 😩
@mood i wish i knew about it back when it still existed 😔
@sc Y2K aesthetic in web design is the perfect marriage of pages loading in a reasonable amount of time and actually having an appealing look
@sc I feel like Rollercoaster Tycoon and other sim/tycoon games from that era also fit
@sc oh dang the two right hand ones are my faves no lie
@sc omg the last one even has "best viewed with netscape navigator 4+ or explorer 4+" on it, i am LIVING
*Starts whistling "Beyond 2000" theme*
@sc classic! :D
They're also on are.na
@sc finally someone with TASTE
@sc Tables in tables in tables, images for link with mouseover effects, images for borders, my friends.

@sc oh damn the memories
