Default Theoryland through the Ages

I've been spending quite a bit of time lately rummaging through previous incarnations of WoT-related sites in the Wayback Machine and digging through old threads on rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan, looking for original sources for old signing reports and interviews and such. Anyway, I thought some of you might interested in or amused by a trip down memory lane to view 10 years of Theoryland.com.

To begin, here's what Theoryland looked like in June of 2000, just a little more than 10 years ago. (Even though Theoryland started in 1998, the Wayback Machine archives for Theoryland only go back to 2000.) The cover of Winter's Heart had just been released. Also, check out the new Elders - SDog and Gil!



Down towards the bottom of that image, you can see a comment about clearing out some factions (those that garnered little support). So here's a closer look at the factions that were removed - check out what tops the list. Some of the new factions are pretty amusing, too.



Moving on, things didn't change too much in design from 2000-2002. Here's a look at Theoryland.com in August 2002. At this point, RJ had delayed the release of Crossroads of Twilight. And, note the announcement about Uno's and Moonshadow's wedding.



On to 2004 - the site in 2004 looked a bit different from the 2000 and 2002 versions. It's clear from some of the announcements, though, that the more things change, the more they stay the same. New Spring came out in January of that year, but Knife of Dreams was projected for October of 2005, a long wait between main books in the sequence.



The next image is Theoryland as it looked in May 2006. You can see the notice from March of that year, when we first learned about RJ's amyloidosis.



And finally, Theoryland as it appeared in June 2008, which includes the tribute to RJ that Tam posted.

As a side note, Uno was consistently intimidating back then....not this occasionally intimidating but mostly professorial stuff.

Naw, you were intimidating. I think the ol' lady has calmed you down some.

Ten years...I can't believe that I remember all of those looks and even a couple before those.

Anybody remember which one had Firseals tale listed on the forum entry? I want to say it was the one before the 2000 date Marie posted but I can't remember.

Yeah, well, TL will be a teenager next year, you know. In fact, we may very soon--if not already--have posters born after the creation of the site.

I still take issue with the intimidating thing. I'm sure Frenzy didn't find me intimidating, for instance.

Apparently, someone finds Frenzy intimidating.

How immoral of you, Uno. If everyone did as Frenzy told them to do, she wouldn't have anyone left to lecture at. Then how would she spend her days?

That one was about when I first emerged from my stinking hiding place, back in about 98-99.

Lecturing him about smoking is one of the nice things i've done. i've also been known to hit him with a spatula, shoot him in the crotch with a water gun, and force-feed him Mr. Frenzy's death wings.

i ambushed Sinistrum with those Death Wings too. That was hysterical. i didn't know a person could turn that red without leaking.

and if you think that's bad, my daughter turned Camel into a carrot. True story.

Ah, thanks for sharing these kinds of facts with the public at large. And you don't have to be proud of it, you know.

Marie - thanks for doing this! It's sort of awesome to see how things have changed/ stayed the same.

That's quite the colour scheme for 2000 and '02. Now I wish I had found Theoryland sooner.
