Hi.

So, I was active in this site like 15 years ago. Unfortunately, I lost all the games I made back then (or maybe they are somewhere in floppy disks at my parents' house, who knows)

For nostalgia's sake, I thought it would be cool to at least look at the list of games I submitted here, but alas I couldn't enter my old account as I don't have the password and for some reason the "Forgot password" option is not working for me. So I made this account with hopes of searching my old profile :JULI@N: (https://www.create-games.com/profile.asp?id=1525 ) and look at its downloads, but to my surprise it doesn't list any. Only forum posts, articles and reviews.

Were some things deleted from the site? Maybe posts with dead links where deleted or something?

Hi Julian, and welcome back to The Daily Click.

If you want access to your old account then I can help you with that. Do you still have access to your old Hotmail account?

I've only been an admin for a relatively short period of time, so I don't know about historic admin practices at TDC.

I know games have been deleted from TDC in the past because there are gaps in the game IDs and sometimes I follow a link from the news page and the game no longer exists, or a review doesn't have an associated game. I don't know how much of that was users deleting their games and how much of it was the pruning of broken links.

One way of finding old entries is through archive.org - so for example https://web.archive.org/web/20050928225439/http://www.create-games.com:80/profile.asp?id=1525 from 2005 lists your games but https://web.archive.org/web/20071027102017/http://www.create-games.com/profile.asp?id=1525 from 2007 shows them as deleted.

The games of yours listed in 2005 are: Snowball, Apples & Oranges, Easy Mp3, Kamikaze, Laser Cartoon Chaos, Maxit, Bizarreness, A Kinda Isometric Christmas, Stupidity DEMO, Stupidity, Crazy Stickmen War Thing, Doodles, Bizarrity (DEMO), Telekinesis (abandoned)
and Pacman Puzzle Thing. You can copy and paste the URL text into archive.org to see if any of them are still accessible.

I do have one of your games archived at Kliktopia, which is Doodles: https://kliktopia.org/authors.html

I had a look and a number of your old games are also listed at Caiman Games:
* Bizarreness: http://www.caiman.us/scripts/fw/f1914.html
* Doodles: http://www.caiman.us/scripts/fw/f1916.html

The chances of success are low, but you could also try asking on the Lost & Found section of the Kliktopia Discord: https://discord.gg/25C98VQ

Thanks for your response and for taking the time to do those searches.

Yeah I still have access to that hotmail account, it would be nice to recover the account, please!

Thank you!

And those Internet Archive really brought back some memories! It was cool to see the comments on the games.

I'll be checking the discord to see if someone has Bizarreness or Pacman Puzzle Thing. Or if someone reading this does, please let me know!

WOW!

There they are. I was able to download them. I can't wait to try to run them! Thank you so much!! My old account has a lot of points, I'll give you a throphy

Also, those were pretty well written reviews, I'm not sure I remember having seen them before.. (not that I know Czech but the google translation was decent).
