with the old data missing, I'll miss opening old threads and seeing the old graphics, with tons of Blinkies and blends from the early years

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. :broken:

SO glad those days are gone. lol :teehee:

 

 

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: :'(

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::haha:

I just came back after a few years away, I was 13 or 14 when I first came here. Seeing how compressed it’s become when I’m now 31 and can’t 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. :(

:w00twave: 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! :hug: <3

 

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! :'(

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.

 

The Redux forum back around '08

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

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

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.

Maybe they can put all the seasons on Disney+, especially now that Disney owns Fox. :shifty:

All of the old graphics, and fan art/projects. Not to mention official photos of Idol alumni that were rare and hard to come by on Google. :'(
