I’m not an old timer, but the early things I remember were stacking coupons at Barnes & Noble on Criterion sales, gohastings deals, deep discount before it got real shitty. A lot of members I enjoyed reading but are now banned or just went away. That fucking Skank Girl thread always had me in tears.

Here's an old DVDTalk family picture page (clicking on it twice seems to expand it):

Re: What is considered an "old timer" 'round here?

I guess I'm oldish. Signed up when I had an issue with my dad's Sony Wega Trinitron TV and posted a question how to fix it. Someone showed me how to access the maintenance menu and adjust it until it fixed the issue. Then I wanted to share the wonders of the internet by telling everyone about this wonderful new website called imdb.com. I found out quickly that everyone online already knows everything.

I kind of wish I spend more time here in the forums. I've always enjoyed the Movie, TV and Video games forums but never wandered in here too much. It's so funny in the old days of the internet you spent a bunch of time with randos that you knew nothing about, then it was a social media revelation and now everyone you know in person you know everything about online, and now (for me at least) it's nice spending time with a bunch of randos that have similar interest without social media notifying everyone you work with and all your family members and in laws and everyone you ever had coffee with every single like and comment you post on whatever weird thing that you're into.

This might be my first actual post here, ever.
I've been floating around for some time, though.

If you're posting on dvdtalk - you're old.

To me the cutoff for old-timers was always pre-2000. Post-2000 = n00b

I'm slightly scared to ask how this was compiled and also slightly relieved that I'm not on it, despite being around since the very early days. I don't think I've ever posted a pic though and I never really hung around Otter that much.

I'm surprised there isn't a "Prostate Talk" sub-forum yet.

So what does that make you (11/2000) and me (6/2000)? We're neither pre- nor post-....

Just so you know, I still look exactly the same as my picture on the family picture page. My daughter however who was probably 6 or 7 in the picture is now 27.

Or "Colonoscopy: Who can drink and shit that much?!" I don't have first-hand knowledge, mind, but have heard family members' horror stories.

That map is missing Norm de Plume's Grammar and Punctuation Drive-Thru.

I wish I could say I didn't, although it potentially saved my life.

Do tell. I assume they found some polyps? Would that there were a less-invasive way of detecting colon cancer, as exist with many other cancers.

It's not really that bad. You drink some liquid, you start to crap a lot. It's not like when you are sick with diarrhea. After a while you are shitting clear water. You sleep through the actual procedure so you never feel a thing. I scheduled mine for a Monday so Sunday was my prep day and one day off of work. To be honest the worst part was the night before. I was so afraid of crapping myself in bed I didn't sleep very well but nothing ever happened. I was already empty by then.
