thanks a lot! I tried that site too without any success, this is great then. =)
the downpoint is that we get to see only the year of 2000 right? if I'm not mistaken, the black box existed until 2007. of course it wasn't the same "daily updated" deal until the last day, but it was the most complete live archive with photos a band could have. I think that 2002 has a great archive, there's tons of backstage pictures and non-concert ones (because let's face it, unless you're talking about Wembley, they all look pretty much the same), like them driving to rehearsal in an Irish (scottish? not sure) castle only to find it closed. I laughed at Dave's face waving from the buzzer only lit by the car lights. haha

EDIT: oooh nevermind! just found the archive button that leads to other years as well :p

it's apparently dead.

maybe they will bring it back, but if they didn't do it on the site relaunch it's unlikely they ever will. :(

I loved the visuals though and the discography section looks awesome with all the artworks, but I do miss the black box a lot.

They promised the black box would be back up once the web site was revamped and, so far, no photo page has been posted. I'm hopeful it will be here soon!

The last photo page on the garage-formatted web site was a real let down compared to the black box.

My guess is the box is being reformatted to make browsing through years easier.

but it had a really easy browsing through years on the ESPG version of the site.

the site is officially out of the "fan service" like it was on the TINLTL version and is now more of a basic information site for anyone just discovering the band.

good thing they started tweeting though, the site might not be the same but at least we have Dave speaking to us once again and giving exclusives everytime they're available. the site is beautiful, but for communication, twitter is now the place to keep an eye on all the time.

Sorry kids.

from January 2010

Get back in touch with Lee and tell him their is fan demand for a black box, which means there would also fan reach out for any help in getting photos or ect. Just ask us. ba durh

Lee is gone. He works for Soundcloud now. I believe Sony is handling the site. I did send an e-mail to Foo management to plead your case.

I think you read into my post. I didn't promise anything. ;)

oh my gosshhhh my heart nearly swooned out of my chest, remembering what it was like clicking on the site with the OBO artwork

Re: what happened to the black box?
 
They should make some sort of portal so you can view the site in any era you want. Say you really like the OBO skin, you could view the site with that enabled, yet still navigate to any part of the site, plus see current news.

Where did the Black Box go ?
 
Not been a frequent visitor to the site for the last few years. I cant find the Black Box. They havent got rid of it have they?
