I've been seeing a few reviews and ratings for Worlio around and want to keep a list of them. I think they're neat.
One that has stuck with me is Well Made Web
, where we got an 8/10.
Worlio is dedicated to preserving the Internet as it began. Therefore it shares some overlap with this website though Worlio goes further in scope than RSRU; it hosts many old image and video files collected by its enthusiast community. Interest centres around 90s virtual worlds like Microsoft V-Chat. There is even a project to reverse engineer the AOL protocol
and resurrect the walled garden.
As a real community, the site offers live chat and threaded forums. The styling is bevels and textures, timeless style making for effortless navigation. In a sentence, what archive.org ought to be.
Nothing before has truly motivated me on this site than the positive description of the site and it's community, even if it got something wrong (We only host the RE-AOL/P3OL clients).
If you find any other reviews out in the wild, link them here regardless of if they are good or bad.
