I was super active on the under-13's boards (was it under-13 or something else?), especially the roleplays. My goodness I did so much roleplaying and definitely still remember a lot of iconic moments from back then. I met a lot of really cool people and had some really cool times. I doubt I could look back on those roleplays without cringing.. hard. But, I don't think I could look back on most of I what I did when I was 13 without cringing hard.
I loved the community here. I was never the most plugged in or involved. I never really understood how the clubs worked or how the over-13 boards worked when I finally got there. But I loved this place all the way through. From my dinos, to the games, the collectibles, the chats, the people, seeing that I got a message when I logged in, reading the news, trying to save up money and scales, the absolutely amazing artists that were a part of this community. The tags that people made were and are still so awesome and creative, and it is something I truly miss.
I won't be naive and wonder "where has everyone gone?" Simply put, they're gone, moved on, this place is a ghost town now.
Exhibited is dead.
Now maybe not dead insofar as the website is not down, but there simply is no more playerbase or active community. Which is okay, things like this happen all the time. And I think with the times, websites like this are going to struggle to keep up. The internet and gaming are different now, people want different things. Games like this, neopets, and anything similar are true rarities now, a very niche thing! Maybe that's just my boomer self speaking, but I think the internet is moving away from this type of gaming, which is very sad in my eyes.
It is very cool to see rather active communities on wolvden and lioden, I haven't made any accounts on there, but they seem to be doing well. I'm sad that evosaur/exhibited 2.0 never got released, but maybe it was for the better.
If any of my old friends happen to see this. shoot me a message on here, I'll pop on every now and then, maybe we can discord <3
If anyone comes across this post, feel free to add in something, something you've loved about this place, any good memories, anything like that. Reminisce.
I love you exhibited. Thank you for everything.
