But this is how it looked on July 1, 2006 3½ months before I joined. It has gone through several overhauls/redesigns since then, of course, to finally be what we see today. In fact, the version displayed in the photo wasn't even a paying version yet (they first became a paying site in August 2006). The only person I know that might remember the site looking like this (other than the owner, @myLotBugs ) is @sharon6345 who has been here since May 31 2006 Just a glimpse at history...

I had not even seen the post and I said that looks familiar. I have been here so long I have seen so much. I love all the changes but the best for me is the current one.

Nice! That was actually version 2. There was a pretty bare-bones version before this one that got us started.

'Windows xp reinstall' was obviously a popular discussion on that day!!! Thankfully discussions are a lot less beige these days (mostly!!)

But none are chartreuse...I'd love to see a good chartreuse discussion some day

@myklj999 Now that would be a winner. There's your $5 in one discussion!!

Yeah, I came after that. I remember the categories we used to have and all the repeated discussions because of it. Not that we don't have that problem now...

The only problem with categories was people would create the same category name under different areas...there were several just called 'myLot'

@myklj999 I can vaguely remember that. It would be nice if we had categories again but only a few standard ones and without the ability to create our own categories. Of course I like the tag system too...

I agree that it's colorful. To me it's also inviting. I like what we have now but I also like the old format and template.

Really good find.Sites back in those days are designed with solid colors but it was soothing to the eyes.I didn't have an internet or even a pc back then,so no question of mylot or anything.

@myklj999 I didn't know you could still see any of those posts. You are having a trip down memory lane!

Looks like it would have been a clunky site to get around. But who knows. Interestingly to get a glimpse into the subtle beginnings of what obviously turned out to be a great place.

@myklj999 It's a cool site. Of course, you are aware of what I found. But now I think I might have to check out some other old sites I have not seen in a while. Just out of curiosity if for no other reason.

Wow - I guess the humble beginnings of myLot! It's certainly gone through changes throughout the years . . . but then again, haven't we all!

I despised the rating system. Pushed many people away, left some feeling bad because their discussions were never liked for one reason or the other.
