I'll miss some of the most iconic chaos of yesteryear, including some hilarious threads dating back to season 7, when I first began lurking. brokenheart.gif

I'll miss the history of FOX AI. Since the official website changed to ABC Idol and the old boards from there are gone it's history is marked in blog posts really...


Seriously though... FOX Idol isn't even on iTunes, DVD... Barely on YouTube. ermm.gif crying.gif

Aww IDF is such a huge part of my history. I literally wouldn't be where I am now without it. So sad to see all those memories lost. But maybe good to see some of the embarrassing stuff go. ph34rwave.gif haha.gif


--------------------
Life is so very fragile.
We are all vulnerable and we will all at some point in our lives fall; we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts.. that what we have is special.
That it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested.
We will be tested to our very souls.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.

I just came back after a few years away, I was 13 or 14 when I first came here. Seeing how compressed itís become when Iím now 31 and canít find anything, including a tribute thread to an old IDF member who has passed away is absolutely gutting. That may be the final straw for me never coming back. Rest in piece Gary. I love you, I miss you, and I still think about you every day to this day.

For the record, they didn't purge the thread for Gary out of malice or for being "old news". The entire board had a meltdown in which all record of old posts have been scrubbed by the server. sad.gif

w00twave.gif Unfortunately all of our old data has been wiped. It wasn't anything intentional. Crazy that I was 14 when I joined, and I'll be 30 in June. I remember you! Hope you are well! huggy.gif heart.gif

Anything and EVERYTHING to do with the summer tours. I loved reading M&G and concert recaps. Hate I didn't get to save mine either! crying.gif

I'll miss a lot of the O/T subs, like music, movies, politics, and sports. It was neat how you'd meet people in the American or Canadian forums years ago, and as you grew up, found other things you had in common with them, and could still discuss them here.

Redux Emporium for sure. Can't remember the exact timeframe, but I feel like 2004-2008ish was the heyday.

That's nice of you. I was like, who is Gary, and then saw the screen name and recognized it right away, and I wasn't even a Redux person.

I recommend this channel's playlist. thumbsup.gif Right now he has seasons 1-13 and 17. He is working on 14 right now.

https://www.youtube.com/user/abegitu/playli...amp;shelf_id=12

It also has The X Factor UK, The Sing Off, and Britain's Got Talent.

It would probably not cost much to release all the FOX American Idol seasons to DVD, and I would buy most of them on DVD. They could atleast put the seasons on iTunes or Hulu or something.
