After a lot of work, the site's history has finally been compiled. Due to the length of the history, it is going to be released one year at a time. So, let's start off with the year 2001:
If any of the links do not work, let me know. It is easy to over-look something when there are this many.

Day 6 Content
Did you ever wonder what PSOW looked like back in 2001? Well, I'll be posing some screenshots from late April 2001 today.
At this point in time, PSO-World was running its first Fan Art Contest and was asking people to vote for the winners. Also, the release Version 2 loomed on the horizon.
Do these items look familiar? They should. We've been hunting them for the last 5 years! Of course, most of the rares from this period looked like standard items. Something else to note is the non-standard weapon-types.
Back in 2001, the Lavis Cannon was the ultimate rare weapon. The only way to earn it was to win an official Sega contest or hack it.
Most of these forums should look rather familiar. The unique things that should jump out at you are the Petition forum and "Moderated By" column. Also, anonymous posting was allowed in certain forums.
Gideon posted the first forum topic on January 12th to welcome people to the new PSOW forums.
The member profile page has evolved over the years, but you can still see many of the basic elements here.
Three weeks after PSO first came out, people were already complaining about Sephiroth clones. Some things really haven't changed that much at all over the last few years.
KodiaX987 - The Newbie
Speaking of newbish behavior, even certain older members of the website exhibited newbish behavior. Still, most of them grew up. In some cases though, it is debatable
as to whether they did...
