Most of us long time members have seen 2 or 3 versions of this forum, and have lost as many posts in our count as ones listed. I think I joined around year 2000 and remember being part of the rally for the Custom 5...the reason I joined in the first place.
In that time, I've seen a lot of people come and go, and appreciate the input a lot of cool members have contributed.....and especially wish some of those old members would pop in from time to time, even if they can't be a regular member.
I used to contribute a lot more to the Amp, Pickup, and Guitar sections than I do now, probably because I've gotten a bit burnt out on it.
I'm sure a lot of the long time members remember that.
Anyhow, I'll never think of it as time wasted, because I consider this place like an online club, and enjoy it just as many enjoy things like TV, video games, or any other form of entertainment. I've spent a lot of hours, even years here, and feel like it's a part of me. I've seen people go through life changes, career changes, and even teenagers become adults. It's a trip when I think about it.
So, how many years or even months have you been a regular member? Have you taken breaks, only to return? Have you been here longer than 10 years.
If so, I know who you are without you even answering that question. So, what year?
