PostSubject: Freeware Games Forum Flashback   Sat Feb 11, 2012 8:03 am

Thought I'd dig up the old forum back from the early'ish 2000's and shed a little history about The Freeware Games Forum.

I started my own forum after being a moderator and games reviewer for a short spell at Caiman. Rudy the owner of the Caiman website gave me inspiration to go out into the vast expanses of the www and see if I could do something similar to what he had achieved. To this date, I haven't come close to his remarkable work and his complete dedication he gave to his website but he did give me basic knowledge of how to run a public forum. It was the best learning experience I've had in regards to forum/message boards.

In the early stages of the first Freeware Games Forum (formally known as Freeware Game Links) I made many mistakes but came to grips with how it all worked and started a small online community of freeware gamers. While it wasn't hugely popular, nowhere near what Caiman was, I was happy and content adding freeware games and reviews now and then. It was like a part time hobby and still is. I still find pleasure playing the odd game here and there from the net and although games development has changed quite a bit since I found my first freeware game, the basic fundamentals of gameplay still remain.

The original Freeware Games Links forum is long gone but thanks to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine http://www.archive.org/web/web.php the site, in part (a few pages), still exists. You can take a peek here http://web.archive.org/web/20080513034138/http://s11.invisionfree.com/FreewareGameLinks

There maybe a few of you out there that will recognize the site and at that time I was know as Aussie Dave.

Cheers and thanks for reading.
