* TropeCodifier: The idea of regular people creating their own web content for no cost.cost was first attempted and then immediately popularized by [=GeoCities=], as basically ''everyone'' else around that time were too occupied reciting the "ItWillNeverCatchOn" mantra to snatch the opportunity beforehand.

Then in late June 2009, Yahoo announced that it would shut down the [=GeoCities=] service and every site in it, and on October 26, 2009, they followed through on that promise. Any attempt to go to a [=GeoCities=] page now will take you to a 404 page. Most people dismissed this happening with casual indifference, but then, soon after the closure was announced, a number of different archive projects sprouted up in an attempt to save and preserve as many of the more than 38 million pages that existed as possible, culminating in a [[http://ascii.textfiles.com/archives/2720 900 GB torrent]] released by Jason Scott and the UsefulNotes/ArchiveTeam one year after the site came to an end.

An archive at [[http://www.oocities.org/ Oocities]] has salvaged many pages, as has [[http://www.reocities.com/ Reocities]]. And for some reason, [=GeoCities=] remains open in Japan.
