Anyone been here longer?

Well, I’m sure you have, but at another message board I belong to, a few of us noticed that we were coming up on our 10th anniversary as members. That caused me to check here and I noticed that it will be my 12th anniversary this Friday.

I’m sure others have been here longer, I still recognize a lot of names, but who, beyond the might Cecil himself, has been here longer?

Too damn long, if I may say so myself. I can’t beleive I haven’t found something more useful to do with my time after all these years.

I was here before “here” was here.

I was on the old AOL site. Mostly for the columns. I know I checked out the forum on a few occasions. Took me a little while to find the new site and a little longer to join.

Wow - today is my 12th anniversary here. Apart from my marriage, I think it may be my longest-lasting relationship!!


Only 11.5 years as of Saturday. A mere infant among senior citizens.

Tenure and experience, count for shit. It’s the quality of your post that matter most.
Bonus points if you can throw in a rhyme or two. :smiley:

Me too!
I lurked for a good 8 months or so before I signed up; I’d be in the '00 crowd if I hadn’t.

I’m not sure of my exact join date, but I’m one of the many '99ers around here, that puts us at 13 years. Plus, as Loach said, I was on the AOL boards for quite a while as well.

I hit 12 years in June. I was absent from the board entirely for about 2 years, but I got the stamina working for me.

There are piles of 99ers still around, not to mention people who came over from the AOL board.

Coming up on a decade of Dope in October - though to be fair, I lurked for almost a year before signing up.

I’m a 99er. A 9-28-99er. So a long darn time.

Wow. Not a lot of active members here in the ‘2 digit’ club.
My join date was 03-14-1999 (member number 157).

Generation of '99 here too, although there was a break from activity for a couple years after a burnout. 29 March 1999, member #402.

And for shits and giggles, Lynn Bodoni is #2.

Wait, that didn’t sound right…

99’er here! :smiley: 3-15-99

Yeah, me too. I dropped off the radar for almost 10 years. How do I find my member number?

Actually it sounded exactly right!


You’re #200, hover over your (or anyone else to see their’s) user name and check the URL that pops up at the bottom of the screen.

How do I find my exact join date?

Haven’t been here as long as some, but longer than others…
