I was going through some old backups today and I came across some images that took me back. In 1996, I was a founding member of the Triple Dub Club Cyberneighborhood. (WWW, three Ws, get it?) This was an online Disney community founded by a number of individuals from the Disney Fans Bulletin Board (DFBB) on Prodigy. Remember Prodigy? The Web was young, and we all thought we could create a truly interactive online neighborhood, themed around Disney history. It was a fun experiment, though it didn’t last very long. When Prodigy switched to a web based platform, the DFBB died.. It’s ironic, but while we were trying to create a web based environment, to build up our Disney fan community, as soon as the old ASCII based forums disappeared, our community sort of fell apart and so did the TDCC. Still, I’ll always remember that time fondly.
Here’s some of the graphics I created for the TDCC.
Triple Dub Club Cyberneighborhood. This was my first ever piece of graphic design. I created it entirely in Microsoft Paint. Thank goodness Photoshop eventually came into my life. My handle on the Prodigy Disney Fans Bulletin Board was J. Thaddeus Toad. So when I created my own page for the TDCC, it only made sense to call it Toad Hall. An animted gif of the Wedway Peoplemover that I created. This was to be the graphic that displayed when you were moving between themed sections of the TDCC.
