Yes, but I don't remember if it was fondly.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

My account for this forum dates to 2003 but my EZboard account dates back to 1999. Last time I tried to get into my ezb account though, it's like 4 generations of buyouts deep at this point and sometimes won't even acknowledge it exists.

It was kinda crazy at one point how many people had EZBoards forums. It was kind of the web's geek Myspace there for a bit.

I have to be honest here, I don't really count any versions of this forum before me as valid.

Feb 2003. Hard to believe I joined this board 17 years ago o_o

EDIT: Seeing some of the posts I made back then though, someone needs to invent a way to go back in time and slap yourself upside the head.

I remeber ezboard gave us like a week to suddenly pony up a bunch of money or else they were going to shut down the forums due to the high traffic. A bunch of us got together and paid up, but just enough until martinblank could switch us over. It was pretty shitty of them to do that out of nowhere

They wanted $300 for six months of a board that had crap security. We originally did it to get rid of the ads, but then I think they started hiding old threads. We could do our own forums for $10 a month through a hosted web service, and then later it moved to its own server for about $20 a month (I pay $35 per month now for a VMWare instance).

I'd have the server anyway. I use it for a ton of experiments and I host some other sites on it. Thanks, though.

Another Feb 14, 2003 user here, just on a different account. I... vaguely recall the EZBoards being a thing but remember basically nothing about them. But given the join date, I must have been around on them. That was a long time ago and my memory isn't *that* good

A lot of people joined when it was announced on the comic page. We had a flood of new people that didn't want to join EZBoard but were interested in a smaller community. You might have been one of them.

I definitely joined the forum long before I ever actually made a post.

I think there're might have been some reward system (desktop wallpapers maybe?) that used forum groups to control access to at the time. So I joined not necessarily intending to be active in the forums.
