    Amazed it's still around. ICQ was 99% of my internet usage until everyone inexplicably switched to (the vastly inferior) MSN Messenger sometime around 2001. Very fond memories of this sovlful software.

      MSN was even more bloated than ICQ. And you didn't need to updoot ICQ, I remember old versions as old as ICQ98 kept working just fine.
      I also became pissed at the time everyone was switching from ICQ to the vastly inferior MSN for no reason. It was one of the first signs that soulless npc normies without internal monologues were starting to get on the internet, I remember many people didn't even really knew why they were switching.

      Instead of switching this change kinda threw me off chatting apps until people started switching again from MSN to Skype, which while not as good as ICQ, I found Skype a lot more tolerable, practical and usable than MSN.

    I thought ICQ was dead a decade+ ago right around when most common stand-alone IM client platforms were discontined due to transition to social media platforms that have their own IM component build within them.

    I swear to God I remember ICQ shutting down was already a news thing a decade ago.
    This is some Mandela effect shit.

    Anyway, I stopped using it in 2003 when everyone switched to MSN.

      Nope, it never shut down.
      Afaik ICQ remains fairly popular in Russia and other former soviet republics for some reason.
      I wonder if the current new cold war and sanctions are related to it shutting down

        I'm pretty sure everyone there moved to VK/Telegram long time ago. Never heard about anyone using ICQ for a long time.

    ICQ was soul
    Back in 2000s I used to talk to emo girls, one of them even had a blog with edgy black and white photos of herself on a roof
    Now it's all gone in time, only memories...

    Daily reminder you can still use patched old MSN clients and connect to a reversed engineered open source server at https://escargot.chat. There are also various other projects to reverse engineer other chat protocol servers, including ICQ. Escargot needs more people using it, its fun

          And still it won't bring back the people or the culture, it's just another soulless imitation, another cargo cult, a last sad statement of the old world.

            Wrong once again, there are many people following the old culture and continuing it on in evolved forms today, just obviously not as many as there used to be. Yes, using IRC does not mean that discord will no longer exist, nor will it ever substantially grow to be a real competitor. You can use both services in different ways. Playing older games does not mean newer games will no longer exist. That doesn't mean you can't have fun playing older games on dead consoles. Look at the super mario 64 speed runner community, its a game from the 90s, and they dont larp and pretend its still a hugely popular game and that the n64 is still relevant. They just have fun exploring the game, theory crafting, building rom hacks, continuing an old culture and building on it, rather than imitating it.

            If you dont believe the old internet can be real and fun, then you'll never find it or be part of it.

    No, I want open sauce networks now. XMPP is ok, others are ok.

    In the end the proprietary networks cannot even run a single server without becoming very annoying.

    Not gonna miss it. I'm autistic. The bullies catfished me on ICQ.
    At least I wasn't a sex pest who tried to cyber. I just wanted friends to talk to.
    They got laughs out of me anyways because they LARPed as different people from school and were all like "loolmfaoroflcopter the moron thinks he's talking to an gril"
    And I thought those people just didn't want to talk to me in real life.

    A lot of kids bragged about cybersexing though. Which I always thought was moronic. Even today apparently people have entirely online gfs. What the frick is that. I'm literally moronic and even that is too moronic for me.
