Was the Old YC application system written in Arc? (ycombinator.com)

I think so. It definitely had the same style as https://news.ycombinator.com/login in the sense that it was a plain html page consisting solely of textarea inputs. And YC launched in 2005, which was long after pg began work on Arc in 2001. http://paulgraham.com/arcll1.html

I once replicated the YC application by writing it in Arc (similarly to how we extended Hacker News at http://laarc.io/), and the resulting app looked mostly identical in style without much tweaking.

Into the void we go.
