They have taken my copyrighted material and refused to remove it when I asked them and told them I was the owner and had plans for reposting it on one of my legit servers. In fact the correspondence was extremely rude. I agree with the above poster. I can't see how this site is in any way legal. If it were like the old Geocities, owners of the sites would have the freedom to edit them and this is not the case.
reocities.com has plagiarized our copyrighted web site and has refused to remove it from their servers after we wrote them and told them to remove it. It looks like it will take legal action to get them to stop stealing our Copyrighted material that had been moved a new URL when geocities closed. STOP THE THEFT REOCITIES!!!
As one door closed, another one opened. But not leading to a new hope, just rescuing an old dream. Yahoo finally pulled the plug on Geocities recently, which at one time had been home to thousands of those sites that search engines these days bury on page 4583 out of 4585 - personal home pages. At its peak in the mid- to late nineteen nineties, it was the leading example of what an online community might be, if it could give members a rudimentary way to create the framework of their own home sites and import all their own content.
Back then, if you wanted to throw together an awful, incoherent mix of inappropriate, slow loading, pointlessly animated graphics, irritating sounds and badly constructed text, there was as yet no MySpace. Ahhh, the Good Old Days.
So felt a lot of people, and when Geocities closed, a big part of it had been rescued for posterity. That's now being resurrected at reocities.com, which cleverly isn't just changing one letter for fun, it's making it easy for people with existing links to Geocities to point those links in a new direction. There's even a FireFox extension that will do it automatically.
All the cities of Geocities are there, and the neighborhoods are building, but a lot of the old sites are not there yet. They're coming, though. I suspect that in another ten years nobody's going to believe a project that looked like this could ever have existed, let alone survived for all these years. Some people will suggest it shouldn't have. But at least it'll still be here to debate over.
