Re: Any old timers still around?

The lower numbers are not exact. They are accounts that got imported and re-installed to here when the software changed. At the same time a lot of dead accounts got pruned. I can't remember when it was - around 2003 or 2004 I believe.
Originally C was #1 and now it's AnthonyF (user #1 is always the person who installed a board)

Re: Any old timers still around?

There was a big purge in 2005 I think and we switched to the new board then too.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I joined the same week that either "Author, Author" or "Friendship One" aired on UPN, about a month before the Voyager finale.

Re: Any old timers still around?

You old timers must have some kind of metaphysical connection or something... How do you all manage to gravitate to a thread like this? Anyway, would be so cool if there was an archive of the most popular threads from back then. I'll bet there were some terrific ones over the years, filled with wit and insight.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I started looking at the early membership (1-30 range) and it's interesting to see how many members have remained mostly active. A good many that dropped off stopped posting around 2009-2010.

One oddity... found a member who joined in July of 1999 and just logged on a couple of days ago, with a grand total of 67 posts to their name. 67 posts across 14 years!

Re: Any old timers still around?

One thing's for sure: when I first joined the board in 2001 I had no idea it'd turn into twelve years of fun and depravity. I figured it'd be some message board I visited every once in a while to talk Trek.

Man, was I ever wrong.

There are some threads in internet archives (screeenshots mainly). And most of us oldies are in contact with a few others and simply point them to this thread
(also, many of us are a bit overweight and the sheer mass of so many oldies creates a certain gravitational force that attracts other oldies until we form a planet of our own. )

Well, lessee...the continuing adventures of the Berman/Braga flame wars were always a favorite, culminating to its peak between Nemesis and Enterprise tanking. Then there was that guy who was starting a "serious" project to build a 1:1 full-scale Enterprise. That was a hoot. The TOS/NuBSG flame wars weren't as bad here as in other places, but it got feisty in spots, IIRC.

There have been so many entertaining conversations, it's hard to keep track of them all.

Re: Any old timers still around?

the game threads were pretty popular. Remember "Trek me this" ? (It was a Trek-themed variation of the "would you rather" threads we currently have in the lounges)
