Fun Fact: 10 Years is coming up

Postby Sebby19 » 4 months ago

So yesterday, I was just randomly looking at the list of registered users, and noticed TLs4 was the only one that the forum said joined '10 Years ago', and everyone else said 9.
Today, a bunch crossed over to '10 years ago', despite their join date being June 15, 2009. The Join date of TLs4 and raocow was June 11th.

Fun Fact 1: raocow is not a 'registered user'
Fun Fact 2: WOAH GUYS, THE talkhaus's 10TH ANNIVERSARY IS COMING UP!

Am I the first one to bring this up?

Possibly!
I can think of one reason raocow isn't a "registered user":

the "no-cows allowed" forum for planning things

It's a little sad how the forum never really recovered from the talkhaustrophe.
I suppose maybe that isn't entirely to blame, and it just reflects how LPing isn't exactly the behemoth of gaming content it once was. Streaming kinda killed that with how much more interactive and easy it is.

Actually I think 2014 to 2015 was when the activity in forums peaked (although they may have been pretty active in 2013 too, the year talkhaustrophe happened). On the contrary, it was a year before talkhaustrophe when people were discussing how the forums might fade away. And look at how long they've lasted since.

Activity certainly has gone down due to chats displacing some of forum discussion, but they still have some use.

I'm surprised I'm not seeing more tauhausers hype up the anniversary. Come on people!

I'm going off of memory from like 6 years ago so someone can correct me if I'm wrong on certain details

Sometime mid-2013 talkhaus went down for like a week straight (maybe longer?) and it turned out the webhost somehow lost literally all of the data. Everything from the beginning of the forum in 2009 was believed to be lost, but just by happenstance one of the early days talkhaus admins randomly did a backup of the site a few months prior, and was able to restore everything up to the day he did the backup. Unfortunately that means a few months of posts were lost, as well as every file hosted on the servers since those didn't get backed up (if you look at posts from mid-2013 and prior, anything that was supposed to have an attachment doesn't have it any more).
And I seem to remember there was a handful of frequent posters that just disappeared after this and never came back, but maybe that's unrelated and/or in my head.

I just want to emphasize on this. It's worth remembering that Zanyhost didn't send us back a few months. Zanyhost lost the entire history of the talkhaus forums (and I think the old version of raocow.com, too) - the very existence of the talkhaus customer account was wiped from Zanyhost database. It was because of Thissa's backup that we were even able to recover up to a few months before that point. Just let that fact sink in...

This is the former admin's account of what happened, including the response Zanyhost gave with regards to the situation:
Post

And it looks like this host is no longer around and has ceased operations for years now.
And I seem to remember there was a handful of frequent posters that just disappeared after this and never came back, but maybe that's unrelated and/or in my head.
There might have been some but the forums overall remained active past the incident. I think mid-2016 is when the activity on forums started to decline. I felt that during the Mosts.

I wish raocow was more popular overall. A new video would start with 20,000 views minimum.

Only a few more days guys! 10 years!
