Geocities was a website that allowed users to build their own websites and communities using HTML. These websites were organized into neighborhoods, such as Television City, where several South Park fansites were once located, many hosting ancient fan works. In the days before social media and wikias, many users would create a Geocities site to show their affection for a program and they were often used to build communities.
Yahoo later purchased Geocities and discontinued the service, removing every website that had been created on the platform. Projects like Reocities tried to create backups of what remained of the original sites, but some were lost forever.
