Are you calling me a young kid or just generally referring to all the youngsters reading your post? I'm older than you I think, born in 1983. I just don't get around the internet as much as you.

I don't really know the history of search engines. I just remember the first websites I went to I manually typed in the domain names and didn't use a search method. I think it was mid/late 90's.

Ah well I didn't start using the internet until 2000-2001 so I dunno how it was like in the mid-late 90s.

Yahoo search was my search engine until 2003 or so when I switched to Google. I remember many people not being fond of Google at first for not being a pure search engine. Once you went past the first page of results it'd show you links completely unrelated to the subject you had searched for.

Yeah I was at my aunts house and she had "windows 95." I remember it was the first time I seen/heard Weezer's 'Buddy Holly' song that was loaded with the program. I think WWE/WWF website was one of the first I visited. Launched in 1998 iirc. It would have been cool to have found thetechnodrome.com a lot earlier than I did.

WWF's website? Didn't soem of the top wrestlers have their own websites back then? Watch Raw episodes from 2000 or so and look at when their names are on the screen as they enter the ring. It says things like therock.com and such under their names.

Yeah the wrestling website. Other wrestlers could have had their own websites as well. I only remember going to WWF website. I think around the same time WWF became a publicly traded company and you could buy stock. I thought that was cool but couldn't buy any because I was only a teenager.

Back the day Secret Origins Part 2 aired of the 2003 cartoon I I looked on the internet to confirm by theory that Shredder was the utrom convict to get around slaying him in Return To New York part 3. I found this site that day. I dragged my feet registering as I was content to just read thoughts of the episodes as they aired when I lurked in the 4Kids and General section once or twice a month.

Not much to tell really. Easily showed up on Google in the heyday of the pending 2014 movie drama.

I don't really remember but I know it was during the 25th anniversary hype.

Pretty sure I had used the main site a bit here & there over the years, not noticing it had a forum option (not that it mattered as I was never into the idea of forums).

Couldn't tell you, but it was years ago for sure. He's had it at least since before the sale to Nickelodean, because I remember he had an article or two about that and concerns over IDW taking on the license.

The IDW thing sounds like an interesting article subject. I am going to try and track it down unless you happen to have the link already available?

Not offhand, but it's simple to find, so I just went ahead and grabbed the link.

I was getting back into TMNT at the time.
I did a Google Images search for Sewer Surfin’ Leo (which was my first TMNT figure ever) and this picture came up:

It led back to this place and after a long time of lurking, I eventually made an account.
The rest was, as they say, history.

I think I did a Yahoo search for "teenage mutant ninja turtles cartoon" around late 2002 and the website came up. I just looked at the main page at the time. I didn't actually check out most of the forums until I registered an account a few years ago. Didn't know there were so many subsections.

I don't remember how I initially found this site. Maybe it was linked in the Ring of Green? Or, I was a member of the old mailing list. Maybe it was mentioned there? I lurked for a while. In 2003 I joined when I felt the urge to participate in the 2k3 episode discussions.

Googling for information about TMNT some weeks before Christmas 2003. TMNT for me back then was just a memory, consisting of

*Some videotapes of the 1987-1996 series.

*TMNT Adventures comic books and storybooks

*Action figures
__________________
Because the crossovers doing nothing else than messing up the timeline and other stuff of the 1987-1996 series, I've given up writing fanfiction about it. Instead, I'm trying to reboot the TMNT as many other fanfiction writers do:

Hopefully, stories will later appear at

Was looking for some information related to Ninja Turtles back in 2003 in Internet Cafe. Found Ninja Turtles.com and Technodrome Forums.

I was looking for information about figures coming out (this was in 2015) and DVD's pictures popped up. I found the site, and a year later, became a member.
