My guess is that the original Aaron is gone, and much later when we were discussing member numbers, some mod on the board unlocked the Aaron account and used it to make post number 2. That same mod, or a different one, maybe, posted above. That's my guess. =)

Well that post from whoever using Aaron's account was pretty funny. I had a good laugh. It's comforting to know the "regulars" from when i used to frequent Hatrack are still around and keep posting.

Note, though, that they referred to OSC as "Orson". That suggests that they don't actually "know" him (scare quotes used because none of us really know him on here, even if we know enough about him to know that he goes by Scott. I don't imagine that a mod would make that mistake.

When I first joined the Big Mouth Lion forums were locked, but were still browsable. After I read through everything on the live site I went over there and read the entire BML forum. I was so thoroughly hooked on this place it wasn't even funny.

I was thinking that you all had to have been around five years old or something when all this historical "forum in the making" stuff was going on, right?

i was in middle school when i first read Ender's Game, and found the forums my freshmen year in high school. Yep, 1999 was a good year.

I'm on the edge of 3 digits. It's been a while since I've been a regular poster. Water under the bridge...but I do stop in sometimes to see what's happening, look for old friends, and stir the water with my toe. Stirring now...what fish might come up to nibble? I miss Hatrack's unique community. I don't see as many of the intensely beautiful debates and absolutely passionate respect and affection between the debaters that I used to. I don't know whether that's a function of a larger population or time or something else. Perhaps I should hang out a bit, and see what's here again?

I am part of the long time ago crowd. I still lurk from time to time.

in case you see it here first, Wendybird, have you been posting on Dan Haseltine's blog?

I think I'm 3 digits, but I don't really recall, so once I hit "post" we shall see, won't we? Of course, I don't come 'round here much anymore either, so y'all could be forgiven for think I don't exist anymore.

Edit: 2300? Wow. I know I'm in the 3 digits at Ornery. Or maybe Nauvoo. Thought I was here too. Ah well.

Hmm, I feel like this a club and we should all get some sort of special, membership-only privileges. I just can't think of any really witty privileges right now.

I first read EG in 1994, and started on this board sometime around then, I used to be Quick_Silver, but I have no idea what my number was...This incarnation says I opened it in 2005. *shrug*

Aaron's got 2 posts left as a new member. Wonder how he'll use them.

Bragging about his low member number, of course. And winning the biggest lurker thread. Amazing he jumped right on this though.

You know, the whole transition from BML to UBB is a haze. I know I posted on some incarnation of BML, back when you didn't need to register, I think. I always wondered how the "long time ago!" came into being. So the final cut-over to UBB was what, late 1998? BML was around only for a couple years before that (95/96)?

I never posted on the old boards, but I did lurk there for a bit. I almost got an account but decided not to (it was right when I first started using the internet and was wary of signing up with anything). I left for a few months and when I came back registered on the new site. I was always disappointed I didn't register earlier and get in on that "long time ago" transition action. I assume that's why I haven't been getting the gift basket.

No. That's because someone has been, ah, diverting it. *whistles*

Nothing to see here, move along now.

I vaguely remember being the youngest one here. It was kind of fun but looking back I wonder how many people were sick of that kid pipping up in adult discussion. Not that people aren't sick of me now but at least it's for being me, instead of being a young, immature me. [Big Grin]

I posted on the Fresco pictures website all the time back in the BML days, but the Hatrack forum was too much for my late 90s bandwith and patience to handle. It took long for me to read it to ever try registering for it.

I do have this three-digit member number, but I re-registered under a new name in honor of Mooselet's arrival.

I like my member number. It has a nice sound to it.

Nice to see a few old names!
