LiveJasmin previous versions
History of LiveJasmin
In the upcoming months, our favorite website LiveJasmin.com will be 20 years old, this is amazing! With this article, I would like to recall the past few years.
At the dawn of the INTERNET, Livejasmin was almost the first website where other people could be watched during their sexual activity in live, through their webcamera. So, LiveJasmin is arguably one of the oldest websites of its kind.
The earliest LJ site was launched Jasmin.hu, mainly targeted the Hungarian audience first.
A bit later Livejasmin.com was registered at 12-11-2001; believe it or not, sooner than today’s big names like myfreecams (Domain registered at 19.03.2002), or like Chaturbate, which appeared 10 years later (Domain registered at 26.02.2011)!
A new generation has grown up since the site was launched, let’s see how the old website were looked like, that we’ve long since forgotten.
The oldest version – beginning 2002
Every company starts small, as you can see in the 2002’s ancient version; no design elements were visible on LiveJasmin yet.
Although websites at the time were not full of design elements anyway, the Internet’s bandwidth was also very low in most places. Cameras had very low resolution; therefore the „shows“ were laggy, the pictures were full of blurry pixels.
Here is my first picture. No red design, the main page has some links and the text : Welcome JASMIN! :-)))))
I would also mention the old FAQ and the „how does it work?“ section, where we get a full detailed explanation of how live-streaming works. 😀
The next version – 2002
Older LiveJasmin users may already remember this version. The iconic red color, the page has been updated, and the logo also appears.
We’re missing some parts of the old site here due to bad capture, but here is the mandatory GIF banner. In those days, every page was full of moving, flashing GIF banners. The „cool stuff“ menu is also interesting to today’s eyes.
A captured free chat video, without the video itself in the 2000′ style.
Old Version of LiveJasmin – 2003
This is the „Our models Page“. Can you imagine that only 272 models worked on the site in total? (This was 2 years after the launch)
Couples, boy, girls together on one page. I would also like to draw your attention to interesting performer names 😀
They also had an ICQ number, which is no longer very familiar to people today, but was an iconic chat service at that time 😀 (Old ICQ number : 172177817)
Model Page was very different:
One step further – Early Version – 2004
This LiveJasmin version hasn’t changed much since the previous one. The Performer Awards are already released this year. The total number of performers almost tripled. WOW.
The awards (sorry for the missing pictures):
Getting better – 2005
A slightly different new landing page had been introduced; much more models had been registered. I especially love the interesting links at the bottom of the page. (Netscape, Amazon, Altavista, AOL , Real treats for a web archaeologist 😀 )
Livejasmin in – 2006
The real boom in the number of visitors and performers occurred somewhere here. As you can seem the number of the total performers was 24950! New categories appeared also.
LJ Version in 2007
New landing page, and new categories again. The most interesting one is GET MARRIED. Of course, there is no such option nowadays.
LiveJasmin’s life between 2008 and 2015
The design has not changed in 7 years; the traffic of the site has been constantly growing. I think everybody knows the design that is called the old LiveJasmin. LJ was the most iconic adult live cam site at the time with this landing page!
LiveJasmin NEW design – 2016
The beginning of a new era in the life of the website. Where the old design was thrown away and something completely new was introduced. The welcome was mixed, but users soon got used to the new look, and plenty of new cam sites took over the mosaic idea as well.
Plenty of new things were introduced such as the private teasers, smart buy, fan club,livejasmin.tv. I have to mention the beautiful, professional profile pictures as well, the site became a premium category.
From 2017 to the present
These designs are much more closely related to the website known to visitors today.
I hope everyone liked this little time travel into the past. Throw in a comment about what are your favorite features from the old days. Also, do not forget to check the free credit tricks here.
Oh, and happy 20th birthday again, good old LiveJasmin!
