A Glimpse Into VCO's Past - Wayback Machine

So I visited the Wayback Machine, part of Archive.org's initiative to catalogue pages from websites in the past, and searched voodooshipping.net. As it turns out, there were a few catalogued pages from VCO's past, with the earliest being in October of 2013, the year VCO was established. For those curious of what VCO looked like back then, or those seeking some nostalgia, here's the link.

NOTE: The archived page has some formatting and background errors; I don't imagine this page will look exactly as it did back in 2013.

https://web.archive.org/web/20131006033318/http://voodooshipping.net:80/

I'm seeing a ton of names in the TS3 list to the left that I don't recognize; do any of those names look familiar to the VCO OG's?

Its missing alot of the design formatting it used ot have but damn man muh nostalgia. I recognize every single one of those names. I miss those guys, specially DJ. He would just sit in there and play music while he did stuff. I see Neonelly and Xdenis too ermagherd. This was pre-split. And aeflic, too!

Not quite full "when vco was established". The Teamspeak wasn't that big when I first joined, didn't have all the extra channels past the ps2 stuff. But damn if it wasn't a long ass time ago. I remember them days, everything was nice and made sense. Could play PS2 for hours on end and always have someone to chill with (not to mention not have any other one of these pesky "responsibilities" like school T.t)
What is my life?

I could say alot.

I could write a novel,

or a paragraph.

But instead, I'd much rather write one sentence and leave it at that.

What I want to know is whose sexy image this is. Did VCO ever have a Waifu Mascot?
This was on the above archived page in the slide-show module.

What's the backstory for the pin-needled dolls as our old mascot? A lot of the pre-V logos had it.

PS: The original post for that chick was from Djshades' art thread at http://www.voodooshipping.net/forum/page/2/m/14480460/viewthread/8098308-djs-art-work/post/47140664#p47140664

Dude, come on, it says 2010 right there on our logo. The Enjin forum was not the first iteration of this group :p

Dude, they're Voodoo Dolls.

I kiiiiinda wanna blame the art on XDenis, but I could be totally wrong, it's a long time to remember.

I believe it was Xdenis or another one of our artists from back then. Basically we were working on logo and silly 'murica poster art and someone came up with the idea of an NC helmet wearing chick in her bra with a voodoo doll in her hands.

And the dolls are like what storm said, we were iterating through logos and someone thought of a box of voodoo dolls

What in the flying-flippity-fuck?! I always remembered the logo saying 2013; I'm calling some serious Mandela Effect BS right there.

According to the "VCO Anniversary" calendar event, Voodoo Shipping Company was created on June 11th 2013.

Edit: Hidden event... super secret stuff...

On a semi-related question, what should we do for our 5yr anniversary!?

I can't quite remember why it says 2013. But it was definitely a thing in planetside 2 before then. And I believe 2010 was when the minecraft group started? I joined up in 2012/2013 sometime as one of the first 100 people to join the outfit originally.

2013 was the founding of the site and the Planetside-y type era, 2010 was when the Facebook group was formed for our Minecraft group, the originals, and when we chose are totally super serious 100% minecraft relevant name.

(Fun fact, the name actually is, in a deliberate way, referential to Minecraft, internet points to anyone who can guess why, oldies excluded.)
