Less of this old timer nonsense, it's long serving members.

Re: Any old timers still around?

What's the definition of old timer. I was here in 2002 (Changed usernames in 2003) but it doesn't feel like I'm an old timer.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I guess one way of gauging it might be: "Were you using a cell phone with a retractable antenna when you joined?"

No, but I was using a flip up Cell Phone at the time. Heck, when I first joined, I don't think I was using a Cell Phone at all.

I didn't have a cell phone yet. It would still be two years before my first cellphone, and it would be one of these:




And it wasn't even mine. I had to share it with my mom.

If you need to ask that question, you are not an old timer.

It was 10 years of time wasting for me in May, but I still don't feel like a member of the old guard.... they smell funny. Ha!

Re: Any old timers still around?

I sometimes wonder what it'd be like if I had registered much earlier. I had been lurking for years. I was aware of this place back in my undergrad days, then started lurking a bit after college. I wouldn't have gone with Finn since I wouldn't have had the dog yet...

A lot of people have gone. I remember Galleywest constantly winning the TNG caption this contests, Amelie snapping at posters in the Voyager forum, Naraht's Dr. Crusher threads and Captain Gandalf's photoshop art thread (the current one is a mere shadow of what it once was).

I browse the trek forums (most posts are caption this ones) when not in Misc and TNZ. I've been noticing more and more unfamiliar newbies. 2006 seems so a long time ago now.

It all depends. How often do you notify the mod?

Been here... Sheesh. 11 years.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I finally passed the decade mark this past summer. If I stay here five more years, I'll have been a member for half of my total lifetime.

And after all that time, the thing I remember most is that goddamn dancing badger cartoon.

I remember the bouncing sloth head from a long time back. I just wish I could remember who first posted that and, if it was somebody's avatar, who had it.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I've been here for 11 years. That's a little over a third of my entire life. I darn well better be considered an old timer.

And of course ELECTRICAL SUPERSTORMS!!!

Also, OmahaStar's website "ISN Anchor Desk" (and it's still up!), where he would create a profile page for you, as well as list your birthday. Click on the links if you want to see some old school TBBS names!

Re: Any old timers still around?

Hmmm. When was the board deletion/migration again? I seem to remember something along those lines (memories not what it used to be xD) so that could mean I've been here longer than the 10 years this board states. Man I feel old.

I remember setting up an irc channel at one point and ending up doing nothing but Trek trivia in there for a while lol.

Any of the old LoNAF members still around?

whoa. Omahastar's site. that is amusing xD http://www.isnanchordesk.com/trekbbs/pix/kgibsonuk.html

Hmmm, I was 21 when that page was setup now which means I've been a member for 11+ years. Oh my!
