There was a time that I was getting into Photoshop...it was just before I went off to chiropractic school (which I think was something like 2007ish). I just so happened to receive an email today from the greedy, money hungry Photobucket saying they need $4.99/month to host my images because I had over 250. So I started going through them and lo and behold, I found some pictures that I never thought I'd ever see again. So here's some of my collection...it's not so much of a "showoff", for me, it's a preservation of history on the site!

There was a time we had a Se7enSins XBMC Edition. I created the splash for digitalhigh to add (and he was one that actually worked on the XBMC project at the time...and I think eventually Kodi as well, but now he's on to plex stuff).

In no particular order yet, but I will start with probably my favorite one I made:

This was made to make fun of "Assassins4Hire", their owner Illusion who waged some sort of internet "war" against us. I love that it said we would prosper in the end and look at us! And where are they at?

Not created by me but it's what made me want to start using Photoshop:

^Back story: Old admin, Spyder, who helped me start the site by offering me free hosting through his brother's business (as a subdomain: xboxrevamped.pookyhost.com) so we could have IPB installed, which offered more protection as the free software sites were easily hackable back in the day. Any way, he went on to some other gaming forum asking for someone to create me a signature. He presented it to me as if he was the one that created it. After that, I requested more from Spyder and he never would deliver. One day I don't know what I was searching, probably my name, and I came across Spyder's thread requesting my signature. I signed up to the site, thanked the guy that created it, and he was very douchey about it...I don't remember what exactly his problem was. I'll have to search for that conversation (if the site still exists).

I think many people on the site have looked for these over the years. I don't recall who has off hand, but here they are.

Se7enSins reached 5k members after being up for less than 4 months! You won't find that happening these days! iirc, we hit 2k in under 2 months. All of this without Google sending us any traffic. We were in, what was called "The Google Sandbox" until September 2006.

Thanks, I don't remember how to do them any more lol The title of a few of them were "smudge" so I'm assuming I used a smudge tool on the H2, Ironman, Squats, and Spyders.

Damn, it was nice seeing these major throwbacks, saw some things from before my time that I never could picture in my head. It's crazy how far 7s has come, it actually blows my mind when you think about all the little and big things that have come and go over the years and the best part is, its only been getting better! You should definitely bring back those signatures for yourself, maybe change your sig once a month for a year and use a different one every time.

Unless internet, you have no retired banner on v4 in postbit. Also switched to v4.
yeah since v8 is coming there is no need to update the banners in v4 as its not going to be in v8 anyway.

I never thought I'd see the words "halo2modz" again. Sometimes it feels it was just yesterday and other times it feels it was a lifetime ago...

V4 best V
It was definitely a great version! I think v8 is going to top it, especially with all the features coming :wink:
i still use it but use it while you can tho it wont be in v8:cry:
The bad thing with the v4 you use is it's not "complete". There are a lot of minor details that made the theme whole that is missing from the xenforo version. Just not worth updating it at this point in time.

You can see I did create a graphics site but the guys that were admins ended up scaring people away and that kind of finished us. But Idk, when I saw the signatures back then, I didn't consider myself good when I was comparing. We had some really talented people here and I think I screwed the site over by moving all the graphics stuff off the site and onto layeredgfx. It would have been ideal if people used both sites but after seeing what it did to us here, I should have left it and not created layeredgfx. We had some amazing graphic people here back in the day.

We need to bring those signatures back! I remember when I started using forums thinking just how cool the signatures were and how amazing some of these people were at creating them. Always blew my mind, which is what made me look into learning how to do it.

Right? Some of these things...I forgot about but when I see them, doesn't feel all too long ago. I plan on posting some of the award that I had made but I'll post one for now. This feels like only a couple years ago. We are approaching nearly 10 years ago now:

I actually miss that style of award tbh. It just feels more....real...?

Now that's a throwback. The last time I saw that award I didn't know it was gonna be the last time until now and it just brought me back to a moment I had with SuperDooper and Xpargas.

Wow, what a throwback. I was just hitting my teens when all of this was a reality.

Brings back a lot of memories.

I look forward to seeing the rest of what you post. :smile:
