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

Been here since 2001 when I was 16. Now I'm 34.

That brings a tear to my eye. *sniff* I forgot there was a DVD-ROM section at one point.

DVD Exchange brought me here and that part of the forum was Hot stuff, then.

I joined March 1999 so this month is actually my 20th anniversary at DVD Talk. I was 19 when I joined. No matter how I look at it, I'm pretty sure I'm an old timer.

To borrow a facebook meme:

I am an 800.com 3 dvd's for $1 and a $25 Reel.com coupon old.

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

Back when Corvin and Hulkaburger can remember when I joined. I think there were about 5 of us. I worked a desk job and would check in and it could takes hours for one thread to get an update. I too somehow accidentally found this site searching for the 800.com, reel.com deals. I was one of those crazy kids at just 40. Now 60 this year. Oyvay.

A: Anyone who remembers FreeRide, Reel.com, etc.

I joined when I bought a new DVD player and was using FreeRide to earn some easy pocket change to fund my DVD collection. Signing up for DVD Talk was one of the tasks. I came for the FreeRide bucks but stayed for the community. I also have the unique distinction of being the first (and I believe only) to propose marriage on this forum. (yes, we're still happily married)

I missed the Adult forum the most. I know we were not allowed to post anything nude but I remember one poster I can't remember who it was posted some sexy pics of women.

I only remember Reel.com because it was being discussed AFTER I got here. Never used them. I found this site because I had a DVD that wouldn't play and wondered if there was any info on the net about it. I started a thread, it got locked because it was already being discussed. Found out it was defective.

I thought I was much younger than 46 when I joined this site. Now a old fart at 66. Came for Reel.com, 800.com, Freeride, also there use to be a online store called Bigstar.com I believe. I also use to sale the extra OOP dvds I had on Amazon's Auction site instead of Ebay.

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

I joined in January 2006, when I was forty. I'll be fifty-four in July. I am a whippersnapper, I guess. I'm not sure I even HAD a DVD player yet when I joined this site. I had lots of VHS sitting around, though. I found it on Google searching for something else that somehow brought me to the TopBunk thread and fell instantly in love with the snark. It's sort of my spiritual home, if I were spiritual.

I feel validated now. But still a newbie!
