I have one backup of the original sites, but it's from 2011 (from MyInkedSpace). Some data will be useful if I re-create the site as it was back then, what was normal to people and what people liked.

But here's some fun from back then... all the public chat room kicking due to drama and rule breaking:
OhMyFreakingGosh kicked "Dannybhoy1974" from Chat Party (Continued to cause drama with a user after being warned to stop.) Jul 25 2011 10:37PM
pain_redefined73 kicked "Dannybhoy1974" from Sexy Chat (You were warned for calling someone a name and you argued and continued drama.) Jul 27 2011 6:32AM
*kellyjo420* kicked "MikeyMike420" from Sexy Chat (told me to fuck off... see ya later!) Jul 31 2011 10:38PM
*kellyjo420* kicked "cherrylickka" from Sexy Chat (telling me to fuck myself will get you no where. please read the chat rules before returning. thanks :)) Jul 31 2011 10:51PM
*kellyjo420* kicked "MikeyMike420" from Chat Party (Perm chat banned from profile.) Jul 31 2011 11:05PM

pain_redefined73 kicked "dan rivers" from Sexy Chat (You admitted to have had a lifetime ban from the site and a good friend got you back on. ) Aug 6 2011 2:02AM
pain_redefined73 kicked "Forsaken Atrocity" from Sexy Chat (I warned you for drama and you persisted before you left.) Aug 13 2011 4:25AM
SilverTearRusted kicked "MikeyMike420" from Sexy Chat (I warned you both to take it to roast and you continued to roast in sexy chat. Please heed my warnings in the future.) Aug 22 2011 5:05PM

I don't know what the mobile menu looked like so I made it based on what the desktop menu looked like...

Sections expand, example:

Desktop layout and light theme colors from 2012:

Anyone remember Zocialized looking similar to that? My status update is one of my real ones from back then.

Chances are I'd have 3 very inactive sites, but what I created 2010-2014 did attract members (over 600,000). Maybe it would again.

I might pick a different theme year. I think the explosive growth was 2013.

Wayback machine isn't perfect, but it is interesting to see the past.

Look at all these Crews:

I haven't gotten to Crews yet. I did a lot of work today though. I'll put this out once the core features are done and then I can just keep doing updates to add in the missing features, like Crews, Blogs, Forums, etc.

Now I can post status updates!

Not done though. Liking/commenting needs to be implemented.

Status updates support posting images (even uploading them), and embedding videos, and links, etc.

It'll probably look something like this:

Now I can create albums!

Same permissions they used to have: Public, Members, Friends, and Private (Only Me). There is one difference though, rather than having pictures and videos in separate albums, you can now have them in the same album. Albums will also have a key like the old days.. a key you can give out so those with it can get into a private album.

Edit: Lots of work done on pictures today. Album creation/editing, image uploading, browsing albums and viewing pictures, and more.

When viewing a picture (not done yet):

Not much more to show right now, I've been working on some of the scripting stuff, like adding, editing, deleting comments, etc (those things happen without the page reloading). That stuff is mostly done now so I'll be back to creating pages.

The site used to have a feature that let you ask members public questions. Some members really liked that feature (especially Chris*). It was a feature back in 2013 so it had to be implemented:

I was thinking about naming it "Zocial" but undecided now. It's tempting to name it KrackSocial since I still have that domain and the site did have over 200,000 members -- it grew almost as fast as Zocialized did. Hardest part is picking the name. I'll probably just go with KrackSocial and make it 18+ like it was back then.

If I name it KrackSocial Google definitely won't approve an app (because of the name -- reason they rejected it before) but people could still download it from the site and I can still add push notifications. If I name it something else, with a less controversial name, it might get approved but most likely will keep getting pulled because of user created content like before. This is the crappy state of things. Google controls the marketshare for mobile devices. Apple would be a similar problem plus I don't have a Mac any more so an iPhone app won't happen. The benefit for a mobile app in Google Play was to get new members but those days are long gone. This site has had an app since the beginning of the year and it hasn't helped. Word of mouth is what will be required, not a mobile app.
