Woah! Wasn't he only like 18 when he started posting here?

This isn't a birthday thread. I'm just in shock that he's getting "up there".

Wow, my advancing age warrants its own thread.

I was 19 when I registered. February 2002. That is something. I was in my first year of college at the time, and today, I turned in my graduation application so I'll be graduating in March.

This isn't a birthday thread. I'm just in shock that he's getting "up there".
Yeah, pretty soon I won't be in my early twenties. :o

  Naa, you are "early twenties" until you turn 25.  And "mid twenties" until 29  ;)

  Wow that was 2002?  It feels like you've been here longer than that.

Not to steal dear Christopher's thunder (yeah, is he really THAT old?  ;D) but I was only 20 when I registered here in January 2000. And all because I was going to write about Clint and masculinity for my undergraduate dissertation and I needed some advice. I remember MGK in particular was so helpful to me at that time.

And, as they say, the rest is history, and I'll be 27 in April  :o

Wow, when you registered, Ally, I was probably around 17 and still in high school. :o

I registered February 21, 2001. I was only 35.  :-[

Hey, that means my five year anniversary on the board is coming up! 

KC, how long have you and Holden been here?

I registered on the "old" new Board on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1998. I'd hung out on the "old old" board, where you didn't need to register, for a few months before that, however, and so had Holden.  :)

I was a few years older than twenty back then, though.  ;)

What, have I been on the CEWB longer than these two veterans?!  :o I'm more distinguished than I thought  8)

Matt - you still ARE young...you'll always be, to us!

Thanks, Ally.

Let's see.... some of the other members who have been around longer than me and Christopher who still post here:

Conan, D'Ambrosia, Blu, Philo, Agent, mgk, and AKA23 (we don't see him posting at all anymore, but I think he's still "around"). I'm not sure when Gant joined, but I think it was around the same time I joined. BDC28 and I joined within a few days of each other, and he was one of the reasons I became so active on the board. I'm still hoping he'll come back.

I think Conan goes back as far as KC and Holden. Conan, do you remember your registration date?

Yup, I saved a few threads from the "old days," and among them I found this post by Conan ... from Dec. 5, 1998. IIRR, he was on the "old" Eastwood board, as well.

Interesting story Steve. The Man-With-No-Name saga continued with Unforgiven I think. Even though he was "William Munny" in the movie, he reminded me of the man from the "Dollars" trilogy.

I know this has nothing to do with this particular post but, I watched a John Wayne western the other day and I hate to say it, but Wayne was only good in war movies. "Rooster Cogburn", ugggh. I admit, I haven't seen all of Wayne's westerns, but I have seen the majority of them and "The Duke" just doesn't have the same presence as Eastwood. Now "The Green Berets", that was a good movie. Actually, all of Wayne's war flicks are excellent.

"Steve" from Conan's post (as KC knows) is Sad Hill, who goes way back too. Unfortunately, he only has ten posts on this board. But, he came through for me when I was recruiting votes for The Good, The Bad and The Ugly to win the Eastwood Film Survivor game. Steve's a cool guy, I wish he'd post more often.

I renamed this thread to attract the attention of more of the old timers, though I did like the original title.

Does anyone (CAL???) know the actual date that the very first CEWB board "opened"?

In terms of the board, I think I may be the youngest to have posted here.

I registered April 1, 2004. I had computer trouble for 6 months or I would be Member Exraordinaire by now.

Aline goes way back. We don't see her around enough anymore either.

Who else am I forgetting to mention?

Bit of nostalgia going on here. 8)

I am still quite a baby relative to some of you old hands.  I was 24 when I joined on 15th November 2002.  I just made the old board by about a month.

My first post was in the "quotes" thread, and I remember Matt was nice and welcoming, and I thought that was unusual and cool for a web forum...and it got better from there. O0

Thanks for adding to this thread, Lilly. They're all great quotes.

And welcome to the web board. [Smile]

I'm glad to put a smile on your face, and promise if you stick around, there will be a lot more where that came from. [Big Grin]

We have a lot of fun here, and our membership is small enough that everyone gets acknowledged. So I hope you'll continue to join in the discussions, and hopefully even check out the trivia games forum too... we can always use some help trying to solve some of those questions.

 8)  Matt, you kept your promise!  I wouldn't have believed then that I'd still be here now.

How old were you when you started posting here? We had one member, thekid, who was only 14 and posted a lot (and pretty good posts for a young'un too). He's the "youngest" I know of that stuck around for a while.

Conan, do you remember your registration date?

  Only the year, it was 1997.  I was browsing the Net in a programming class lab and I stumbled across the first iteration of the board - which was pretty simple compared to the board of today.

Wow, 1997! So the board will be coming up on it's ten year anniversary soon! We'll need to find out from Cal when it "opened".
