@Lisa Oldham you joined on August 20, 2002, at 09:08:56 PM whereas I was a few months ahead of you on March 09, 2002, at 01:10:49 PM.

That was pretty much the start of the forum as it is today, my own registration on it was February 22, 2002, 09:40:02 AM.

Prior to that there was very primitive board called "Discus", which was first set up in March 1999. The web site had hosting problems in early 2002 and the new board was set after they were resolved.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments!

You do an amazing job Mark and though I don't come here as often as I should( sorry!) I do continue as always to wax lyrical about this place.  I'm always stunned( and occasionally very suspicious) of people if they haven't heard of here! 

I think I may have been here nearly that long too!

A fantastic achievement. A testimony to loads of hard work and effort, much of it not apparent to the user I am sure

Well Done!  :)

Well done!  Have found it very interesting and useful over the years (and occasionally exasperating!!). ;D

Well done Mark for providing such an interesting and informative site.  I think I've been on the site for nearly all that time.
