    Been here since July 2000 according to the BBS (I get the feeling that I lurked for many many months before registering an account), and up until a month or two ago I was still solidly in captain range. A recent bout of spamming has me up to flaptain though.

    Ive had an account since 2003, I usually do the odd post now and again. I do tend to read here a fair amount, and to say its what got me watching a variety of things i never would give a look at.

    Not that ive been a one for long posts, usually of the short and sweet variety.

    Well, I have been a member for five and a half years and this my fourth post, so I would say yes! :)

    I'm just generally a bit nervous about making a fool out of myself, so I mostly stick to reading.

    Which is funny because you sit in my mind as one of the regulars of the BBS from when I first joined. I don't know if you were on a posting spree or I just got lucky in the threads I read, but you are one of the first members I remember knowing (if you get what I mean).

    You've been reading for 5 1/2 years and you're still worried about making a fool of yourself? Surely you must realize that that's almost a requirement to post here.:)

    ^And yet, you still don't know that the only colour you can post in is white (and if you know how to: [highlight]red[/highlight] ) -that's cute! :)

    :guffaw:

    That happens to me all the time- I only see the mistakes once someone quotes me.


    EDIT - of course your post is no longer in the quote tree so it makes no sense :)

    Thanks luv...I know I'll be alright. After all is said and done I'll have a better job....I've always gotten hired pretty much right away...... But to send me away for two weeks on vacation and then come back the first day and tell me they're closing is just really fucked up. I could of been handling my business getting shit straight instead of going on vacation.

    Been here since March 2001 and still only a Captain with 801 posts. I guess I'm just not too talky. :p

    Hello all, joined on November 19 2003, and yes I'm still a Captain. Happy with that, though, and I, like many in this thread, only post when I have something I feel truly contributes. Do spend an inordinate amount of time reading however.

    Thank you, carry on...

    Thank you and I will!!! I always do and I've been through much much darker days than this. I'm still in shock a little bit...I've been here for over 8yrs -- a long time and I will miss TrekBBS during the day though, this makes me a sad. My boss is an absolute wreck...he's already fucking shit up and I'm still here...I am laughing a little bit inside though..an evil laugh. Muuuahhh.
