The Official PIMD Timeline

Discussion in 'Other PIMD Discussion' started by Muschi, Mar 14, 2019.



  1. I thought it would be interesting to compile a timeline of feature release dates (and removal dates) and other big events on PIMD. It's fascinating how much games can evolve, and PIMD today is vastly different from the days of its infancy.

    I had first posted this thread a few months ago, but it seems it was deleted for reasons unknown. The mystery of the vanishing thread...

    Anyway, without further ado, let the reminiscing begin!

  2. I think it's culling. I've had threads be deleted for no reason months after anyone has looked at them
     
  3. That's what I figured. It's happened to more of my other threads, as well as some other people's threads. I can see culling being useful, but it would be nice if we got a notice of it or something. I wonder what their requirements are for a thread to be culled because it sure seems quite random.

    I'm glad I had the thread's content saved in my phone's notes, because I would've been ticked if I put that much work into it and ATA just was like, "Yeah this can be trash." and I wouldn't have had the chance to back up all that coding.
     
  4. This is what I'm looking for 

    This is cute tho, thanks for reposting! I can’t even imagine how long this must’ve taken tho rip. ATA has lots of threads ? and some are out of order

  6. I think my initial post took uhh... 4 hours? The repost took only maybe half an hour because I just had to take on the recent additions at the end.

    And no problem! ?
     
  7. This was pretty cool to read! Really puts in perspective how different the game was when it first came out.
