Cbox Archive 20 [Final]

This contains the remaining chatlogs that I've saved over the years.

I first started saving chatlogs in early 2010. At the time, Eevee's HQ was still Eevee's HQ, and our chat was made through Cbox. Despite having had an account for many months, I wasn't very close to the community at the time, and I saved these chatlogs purely for my own amusement.

I didn't know at the time that I would end up saving hundreds of chatlogs, nor did I anticipate how important the EHQ/Rt50 community would become to me.

In March, Kat decided to get rid of the old cbox and replace it with a chat built in-house by Navarrdev. The chatlog function was later added in May. Following our rebranding as Route 50, the site exploded in activity, and the Chat became the very heart and soul of the community. I began to save more and more logs. I collected 288 KB of chatlogs from the month of April 2012 alone.

I originally kept the chatlogs in a zip archive. Unfortunately, the zip file got corrupted, and many of the older logs have been lost to time.

Site activity began to decline sometime around 2015 with users migrating to more mobile-friendly sites such as Tumblr. By 2017, even the Chat was struggling to compete with Discord, and

Unfortunately, this file is rather sparse. As you can see, there's just a handful of logs from 2014, and a massive gap from Oct 2014 to Jan 2017. I stopped saving chatlogs at some point, and it's possible I deleted many others while having an especially bad day.

I no longer have the motivation or the will to collect chatlogs, so this marks the end of Sparkleaf's cbox archive. However, I might try to continue updating the Quote Archive.
