    Another elderly citizen (not '98, but still) here who oscillates between long periods of lurking and short bursts of semi-activity. :)

    Been here since 2003. and left shortly after ROTS. New movies require new usernames...especially when you don't know the previous one.
    And would rather forget immature posts from that age :p

    Jasman! There's a name I've not heard in a long time.

    I dropped out for a decade or so, and just came back a couple months ago.

    Been a long time lurker myself, but left after ROTS. NO films, weird EU and fics, felt pretty much deserted. But I'm glad I'm back.

    I started here two days after the boards opened. Those two days I was away visiting my grandmother who didn't yet have an internet connection.

    And yes, this place was like a family those first few months, most of us knew each other, welcomed newbies into the fold and had epic ICQ chats - half of which were people asking if everybody else could see them in the chat.

    Hi, KK, good to see you. Right now I'm stopping by the boards every month or so, to check on any new information. Not much news yet.

    Was digging through my room and found an old Star Wars fanzine (fiction) from 1995: Dagobah 8.

    I'm more interested in finding if anyone involved in that 'zine scene from back then, publishers, writers, artists, are here on the Boards.

    I object to people who registered less than a year ago being placed as a midbie (I lurked for 6 months, at least before I registered, so I'm right on the line) It's taken me 8 years to be a midbie, they don't just get it over night!

    :p

    Maybe we need an additional 'rank' for the time between midbie and newbie?

    Or, we can just call all those after newbie by the year they joined. Those who joined in 2013 would be 13ers, those who join next year will be 14ers and so forth.

    Wow. Hard to believe it's been so many years. I signed up when I was 14....

    Well, I actually joined way back in '00 as qoataza. Then, when I moved, I forgot my original e-mail. So, I rejoined in '06 as epithree.

    Bizarre. When I run a search for qoataza now, the system states that my last activity took place during 2012. I have no clue how that's possible. :confused:

    Anyway, cool thread.

    I believe I recall seeing you around a bit, jasman.

    Oh hell, I miss being an Oldbie by one freaking day? Actually, by about two freaking hours since it was like 2am board time* June 1st when I found this place.
    *For the Newbies: Once there was a time when there was only be one time zone as far as the boards were concerned(Pacific Time) and no option to change it to your own time zone...along with near nightly board crashes between midnight and 3am Pacific time. :p

    Now if we go age wise, I'm definitely an Oldbie since I remember seeing Star Wars in the cinema long before the title was edited to read "Episode IV: A New Hope". :p
