And last but not least ( my personal one, but guess everyone disagree..) You know you played Vanilla, when you actually miss the long epic quest chains, taking you across the world, making you experience stuff.. And you get upset when you see ppl rushing to max lvl, then complaining about the game being boring... Enjoy the damn journey...
    Some of those quests were a waste of time on inception. What was enjoyable about getting four different dungeon groups, because no one else was on the same quest as you/felt like doing all the travel, all that travel time/waiting for groups outside of the instances, either farming or buying all of the mats just to form something... Like a blue weapon that was only even worth looking at for 4 levels? Even back then 4 levels didn't take as long as getting all of that crap together.

    As for "enjoying the journey", what journey? Elite mobs fall over solo against players in greens these days. Throw them in blues or heirlooms and classes low armour classes like rogues can face tank the entire dungeons. There's so little worth doing at low levels, you can't blame people for power-leveling.

    Sorry to say, but a lot of things being mentioned were not only vanilla wow. I started in TBC, and I can remember a lot of these things, like running on your feet till level 40, learning weapon skills, using ammo as a hunter etc etc. I could list a lot of things, and make it seem as though I was a classic wow player, but I'm not.

    But keep up the nostalgia, it takes me back too

    When you remember this:
    "I kill two dwarves in da morning, I kill two dwarves at night,
    I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel alright.
    I kill two dwarves in time of peace and two in time of war,
    I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more."

    You played vanilla if you remember the days when 100g was actually a big deal

    You know someone played vanilla if they had ice cream. Vanilla ice cream.

    If you wanted to ride another faction mount the only way to get exalted with that faction was to hand in tons of runecloth, then buy the mount for 900g.
    If you managed that you had something special.

    As Edge of Infinity said, really easy way to check, look at achievements. Feats of strength for even the first PvP ranks or there's the feat of strength for the dark portal opening as well, just checked it in my own achievements.

    You played in vanilla if you remember getting instakilled by shadowbolts in SW every time Kazzak was up.
    It's like crossing an intersection. There's shit going on all over the place and you don't panic and act like an idiot then do you?

    You played vanilla when you raged your butt off when you was in the party with a friend who killed an NPC of the opposite faction, granting you Dishonorable kill.

    The only dishonorable kill I ever had on my main came from a party member killing a low level Horde npc ...... And I did rage at him

    When you remember:

    Gaining reputation for Naxxramas 40 man to be able to enter it.
    Having to go back to elfcountry to replenish your Quintessence to douse the flamerunes in MC.
    Having warriors ninja your Lightforge gear "because there is strength on it" (meanwhile there is also intellect/spirit/agility). This also counts for "retribution" paladins who thought they did not need intellect (they did) and ninja'd the warriors dungeon tier.
    Having to crossdress as a paladin in order to be a decent healer.
    Your statchoice as a paladin was healingpower or something (not spellpower) and crit. Because critting with a healingspell would offer 100% mana back.
    Having a really good difficult class quest to gain a charger as paladin, which they nerfed to the ground in later patches even during vanilla. Black Pristine Diamond....
    Having to go deep into the retribution tree to get Kings meanwhile your role was a healing one. But Holy Shock was not a healing spell in the healingtree, so no selfrespecting paladin would go for holy shock. And the amount of mana to cast it was insane.
    Grinding for "Tubers".
    Grinding your ass off just to be able to pay your repairbills, if you did not succesfully play the AH.
    Having only your maintank use a flask (which was the case with our guild) and giving your flask (if you grinded for it) to the tank. On my server this flask (of fortitude?) costed about 60 gold, which was an insane amount. The respawntime for the Black Lotus (main ingredient) was really long and you would compete for this against other guilds.
    When parties like: warrior (tank) rogue/mage/warlock, priest (heal) were default. If you weren't a known skilled player or in a guild group - druids/paladins/dps warriors would be shunned. Although dpswarriors did good dps, they often "overagroed" the tank and thus weren't very popular at first.
    Tanks (warriors) would need 4 sunders in a pug before the dps could start dpsing. Good tanks would have enough at 2.
    Paladins actually had better agro then warriors or druids, but couldn't really tank due to being oom at 30% in the fight. Let alone have gear to support the paladin.
    The best pvpers were raiders (potentially due to gear).
    You could tank in pvp grandmarshal gear.
    If you were an alliance priest, you had to be a dwarf. Fearward was why (especially on Onyxia).
    LF Key to UBRS last spot!!!
    LF Key to Scholo last spot!!!
    Doing Stratholm runs (human side) for the orbs to get your enchant.

    Witnessing the opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj and the resulting world-wide scenario (Kalimdor only actually). Gadgetzan became a massive clusterfuck.

    Ah the best way is to see if they have a FoS regarding old PVP ranks or unobtainable gear...think corrupted ashbringer.
