Any frozen in time toons or old screenshots?

Classic Discussion
I used to have so many screenshots. I've lost them over the years due to hard drive failures, uploading them somewhere and then the link expires or site goes down permanently, etc. The earliest screenshots I have are from Cata, maybe one from Wrath. :(

The oldest thing I can offer up is my blood elf pally I rolled when TBC launched. Never even got him to 70, the last 3 levels I think came during MoP when I dusted him off. He was 64 I think when I stopped playing him in BC and rerolled alliance.

I used to have a screenshot of some guildies and me jumping off the org gate on mounts with noggenfogger slowfall /yelling HO HO HO MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I used to screenshot texture glitches, too. Most of them I think occurred in TBC and maybe Wrath, though. I had one of a friend of mine's human male paladin with I think it was a belf female face. It looked like a dude wearing lipstick.
I love it all guys!! I’ve read and looked at every post and character!
This druid, haven't played it since my friends changed servers.
Plenty of old screenshots yes, regrettably not all in TGA format.
I recently recovered my old characters. This here character is my second ever created character and was my main back in 2004 (the first being some lvl 4 dwarf that got abandoned). Briefly put, I managed (with great help from blizzard) to recover 1 almost 14 year old account and one almost 12 year old account.
I don't think any screenshots have been saved through all these years and different computers.

I logged on to some of the old characters recently, but it basically brought me to tears seeing how everything had changed, how when I used my mount it got added to an endless collection, I gained x amounts of achievements etc. It almost didn't feel worth to log in to them, so for those character that I did log onto I placed them in noteworthy places and then /sleep as to give them a good farewell lol.

Here is one of my twinks from the eu server Emeriss

I went through all my WoW screenshots on Friday.

101 GB (I thought I had more), and about 46,000 screenshots - all the way from day one in vanilla all the way through BfA beta.

I was thinking about putting them up somewhere, but even though they're sorted by expansion into their own folders, now I have to figure out how to post them. Do I post in real-time? That would take forever.
Ill try to get a screenshot later, but my very first character is still in its 40's and wearing a miners cap with a light on it. He is a warlock lol.

Break imgur! Just do it expansion to expansion and hope for the best? Maybe waste a day copying half of vanilla ones and say "Vanilla episode: 1 a old hope"
I have a bunch of toons that are frozen in time. This was my main in WotLK. I quit after WotLK and eventually came back but when I came back I just rerolled on a different server and started over. I have a couple 80s, a 70, and a handful of 29 twinks on this guys server plus a few toons on other servers. I really didn't have the heart to level him (along with a lot of other toons) up so I ended up just making a new undead rogue. My very first toon (NE Hunter, probably level 50ish) I ended up transferring to my second account and I haven't logged on that account for about 8 years or so.

Before I quit I decided to bring some of my favorite toons to locations that I enjoyed playing them at. This guy was logged out in Western Plaguelands in Andorhal. I farmed there a lot and (I'm in no way a RPer) over time I kinda thought hey maybe this is where Ear was from and that chest I just looted that contained some boots could have been his.

I used to have tons of screen shots. My brother and I used to AoE farm all the time and I had some pretty cool pics of those days but those are all long gone.
My orc rogue is still the same way I left him when I decided to move to a pve server.

I should have been more clear. I'm not going to post all of them. That would be insane, and quite frankly, boring for most people.

I already have a stack of full-screen images I'll post. First dings, first time in a capital city, the run from Darnassus to IF, etc. All the Naxx boss kills we did.

There's also the destruction of one of my guilds because the first vanilla guild I was in couldn't raid more than 2 hours per night, for no more than two nights a week, so we got hardly anywhere, which is why I jumped ship. But, that started the exodus, and I've got screenshots of those conversations. I'm not sure I'd post all of them, but I'd definitely have to blur out their names because that's old drama.

So there's a lot to do, and it would just be vanilla pics. I'm not posting anything past that.

I don't have any "frozen in time" characters, but I do still have my first character.

First character was a tauren warrior on Draka. I got him to about level 15 before I found out a real-life friend played Alliance, so I abandoned my tauren and rolled the dwarf I'm using to post now (which has been my main the whole time I've played).

I've played my tauren warrior on and off out of boredom. Over 12 years, I think I've got him somewhere around level 30-40 now.

I do still have a lot of no longer obtainable stuff (Black Dragonflight Molt, to name one) in my bank because I'm kind of a packrat.

edit: I actually do have a ton of old screenshots. I need to sift through them and pick out some good ones. Considering this dwarf has been my main for 12 years, it's kinda neat to look at some old screenshots I took when he was like level 40.

lol that made me laugh so hard
Here is our first kill of Sartura on first night of tries. Only 6 or 7 people survived. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wCdqONmBn4
Here's one of my old 19 rogue twinks.

Excuse the cringe name.. He was Imsorry for all of the time I played him, don't remember why it got flagged for a rename, especially since there is tons of 'Imsorry' when I searched that trying to find him.
