Re: Couple of general questions for you forum goers:

1996 or 97, Current Debates at Family Planet was the first.

There have been several since then. Otterville, however, is the one I have stayed at the longest.

If running message boards on BBS's counts, then 1986.

I ran a little comic book BBS back in the day, but mainly posted on a local BBS called Merlin's Litterbox.

I probably joined some random gaming or comic forums back in the late 90s, but I don't post regularly at any forum besides DVDTalk.

Re: Couple of general questions for you forum goers:

1. I participated heavily on BBS-based discussion boards called iLink beginning in 1992 or so. Later, I participated in Usenet groups using `tin` from a Unix shell account.

2. This one.

Re: Couple of general questions for you forum goers:

1) The first forum I belonged to was a WebTV discussion forum in about 1997 before I had an actual computer. Does anyone remember WebTV?
2) Probably Rootsweb genealogy forum.

I think it was the Godzilla 98 (the film) forums, so 1997 maybe

Re: Couple of general questions for you forum goers:

1. ISCA BBS way back in 1995 or so, right after getting to college and discovering this whole "internet" thing.

2. I've been a part of this forum for the longest amount of time, but also the [H]ard Forum back in my custom PC building days, along with Anandtech. I rarely posted there though.

I was on it for about two years. Mostly as a convenient way to check out Usenet before it became apparent that Usenet was dying as a discussion hangout.

Re: Couple of general questions for you forum goers:

1. Here

2. Here again. I lurked for a long time before joining, and I could swear that I joined earlier than it shows but whatever.


Wasn't there some issue many years ago here that affected the number of posts and/or join dates? I swear I remember something like that.

Re: Couple of general questions for you forum goers:

1.) My first was YOJOE.com, a G.I. Joe collector's website that I discovered around the time I first started using the internet in 1998.

2.) While I've been a member there the longest, I no longer collect so I only drop in occasionally. This forum is now the one I use the most frequently.
