    Im curious... do any of these words ring a bell to anyone?

    Cybertown used to be a massive community around 2000-2001, which was unlike any other. It still exists (www.cybertown.com) but it hasn't changed in over 6 years, so there is nothing impressive about it today, but back then it was amazing. 3D chats, homes, items which you could put into your homes (all created by users) all using the VRML2 format. There were jobs, and all sorts of fun things you can do. Check out the link, and enter as Visitor. You will need the Blaxxun plugin to view the 3D worlds.... which are pretty impressive, even by today standards (when it comes to online stuff anyway).

    I noticed Blaxxun, still makes the communication server platform (http://www.blaxxuntechnologies.com/en/products-blaxxun-communication-server-demonstration.html) which powers the community. Its pretty damn impressive. I managed to get my hands on a copy, and Ive been thinking of creating a community like this of my own.

    Check it out.
