    March or April of 2000 (actual date lost in one of the many server crashes). I remember when my group was considered n00bs and we were less than a year newer than those who were on board at the beginning of the place.

    Nah, we had electricity... but whatever I was using, its main function was to serve as a 3278 terminal emulator. (So it may as well have been a Tandy powered by a hamster, by today's standards...)

    Ah the days of dial-up. However did we manage?

    But back to tying down the definitions.

    Newb=Anyone who hasn't been here as long as you.
    Old Timer=Anyone who has been here longer than you.

    I used to post several times a day, but not really anymore. I got board with the BBS and found it to be too crowded a place to really have any meaningful discussions.

    At some point in the future we should rename a forum in honor of Mallory.

    How about making one of the definitions something like "You have been a former staff member longer than you were a staff member"?

    That makes me feel a little better. I still remember when I was a newbie, but I am also proud to see a few I welcomed here reaching Rear Admiral, too. :techman:

    How should we call those who have been here longer than TNG had been on the air?

    I've got it.

    If you were around when Enterpriser was pulling his antics, you're a Grade-A Platinum Old Timer. Seems like a pretty good and reliable metric.
