I found some old chat logs from 2002-2004 but discovered that I had kept only those of friendly people. I am not sure if all of them were on TrekBBS. It's possible that some names from other boards (particularly from SlipstreamBBS) might have slipped in. In addition to the previous lists I found:

Cpt Dumbass
Felonius Monk
Borgs 8472 (possibly from German TrekBBS)
Dr Phil (identical with King Phil?)
Geckoboy
Lexicdark (possibly from SlipstreamBBS)
Oxymoron
Phoenician Knight
Soundzen
Borgs8472 was from here, more or less left with the mass exodus when Wordforge was started, ended up running that board for a while after Cassandra/MS left. Not sure whether he was part of TBBS.de, but I suppose it's possible - we did have some who were members of both.

Geck still turns up every once in a while, and Phoenician Knight's around. I vaguely recall Cpt Dumbass and Soundzen, but not sure about the rest.

Santaman and his brother came to town by train to meet up with us during the same trip (different meet-up though.) We had a nice lunch, with us laughing and talking incessantly about TrekBBS and all of the nutcases (including us, of course) around here.
Yeah, that was a fun meet!

Bas and calli were both members of EFCL. At that time they had their own board, though: Muked-SDG. It was hosted by Bas' boss. After 1 or 2 years he needed the serverspace and Bas and calli decided to let the board die. As it was a friendly and funny board, we members decided to not give up that easily and so I rented a server segment, registered a domain and 10 years later (exactly 10 years, today ! =) ) SDG is still there (though inactive).

Re: Any old timers still around?

Given the fact that I posted my name almost 5 pages ago, a C is the best I can give you for this Sherlock Holmes-like gem of deduction
(bonus point for correct spelling, though)

As I said before my 12th anniversary is next April...2001 was a great year for nOObs, wasn't it? The mad rush of interest caused by the end of Voyager and the start of Enterprise resulted in perhaps the biggest surge in board membership in its entire thirteen-year history.
Plus the growth of the internet

I remember some of the more controversial days... They were fun.

Well...yeah. That helped drive traffic here, too.

But besides the burgeoning number of Internet subscriptions of the time there was a mad rush of interest in the Trek franchise thanks to Voyager airing its final episodes and the finale where the ship and crew finally make it back home as well as the launch of what was still called "Series V."

Seems like every day we had a slew of n00bs and Cadets introducing themselves to the forums. One of the first posters I remember interacting with in the spring of 2001 was The Kaylar. Anybody else remember them?

Re: Any old timers still around?

No, sorry. But when I joined in 2002, I posted mainly in the Lounges and at Misc and DS9. Hence I know hardly any of the hardcore Trekkies from the TOS, TNG, or VOY forums.
Had it not been 2001 but 2002/3 I'd have blamed the gazillions of new accounts on missmanner's and Che's duals

In Europe, Trek airs always a year or two after it first aired in the US. Did any of you notice an onslaught of German/Swiss/Dutch/Austrian VOY fans in 2002/3? I don't recall any German-speaking members that joined at about the same time that I did. There were rather a lot of Dutch, though.

Rob Hal! One of the few mods to get a good review in "CaptainWacky rates the mod and admins" (the "classic" thread that nobody remembers or cares about.)
