I was a student when i joined so had plenty of spare time to post

Who remembers old Soup Nazi and his posting frenzy !

I do miss Kenwood, i would hope he has sometime over the years joined up under a new name, top bloke.

Sounds like a goal I'd like to join in on.

Re: Damm days away from 10 years since i joined DVD Talk

Wow- I didn't join til 10/2/99, though I'm sure I was reading it a few months before that (on a Sega Saturn with Netlink!) and didn't register til I had something to post. (Was a bit surprised no one else had taken this username yet!) I still do a lot more reading than posting, don't usually say anything unless it's important and actually adds to the conversation.

Bought into the DVD format Labor Day weekend 1998, after swearing that I would never support the format and forever stick by my beloved laserdisc, which DVD was quickly killing off. First player which I still have and use is a DVD/Laserdisc combo player, which I bought with a new sound system which I went into debt and had to get a second job to pay for. I missed out on most of the early deals since I couldn't put any more money on my credit card til it was all paid off- couldn't even do the 800.com 3-for-$1 deal.

Re: Damm days away from 10 years since i joined DVD Talk

I just passed my 10 year mark - I rarely post anymore, but I read the forum all the time. This site was great to me back in the day. I remember keeping an average of how much I paid for DVD's and thanks to DVDtalk back in '99, my first 50 averaged under $5 each.

I only met another DVDtalk'er once - I saw a movie with Dark Elf (still out there buddy?) and his wife at Pentagon City in Arlington VA. Can't remember the movie though - I want to say it was American Beauty. My participation in the site dropped off right after I hit 500 posts, but I have never been very prolific. OD, do I take the restraint trophy?

Hell, I remember even getting a few free golf clubs from the bargains forum here! Remember that craziness? What was that all about?!

Now, I have to admit, I mostly lurk - I only post when I have a question about a movie, or something along those lines. Thanks to everyone for the help through the years, and congrats to the decaders!

I am also on the brink of my 10th anniversary. I am counting it down in my signature.

Re: Damm days away from 10 years since i joined DVD Talk

Getting close here too! I still remember my first post like it was yesterday since no one responded to my review request.

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-reviews...ew-please.html

I can't believe I wrote that crap (I was nervous!). Still haven't seen the movie by the way and appears 99.9% of the population hasn't either.

Evolution of my username DVDjunkie21 > DVDjunkie78 > DVD-ho78(DTS)

I also remember the old chatroom days when Geoff would have guests and giveaways lined up. duganrm's name was always in there and I'd always call pilot, tolip 'cause I was (am) an idiot.

Looks like I picked a good day to pop in and see what was going on.

Great to see so many of the 'originals' still around actively posting
When people start a thread bragging about how many posts they have the mods normally knock off a few hundred as a warning.

Are they going to start doing that with years?

EDIT Crap, I didn't realize how close to 5,000 I am. Go me!
