What first brought you here, and when?

  Forum Editor 11:36 29 Oct 2012

Perhaps, as we near the end of our forum's twelfth year on-line we might take a little stroll down memory lane.

Can you remember what first brought you into the forum, when it was, and what the experience was like - did you come here because you had a problem that needed solving, or simply to see what went on? Some of you have been here for a very long time, and presumably you're still here for a reason.

I hope we can run a thread like this without it descending into a discussion about your pet dislikes, but if it goes that way, so be it, I can take it.

No I can't remember, probably looked at PC Mag first and then looked at this website, liked what I saw and pay more than one visit per day most days.

I know of no better site for prompt and useful answers, and in return I can enjoy it if I offer something useful back. My profile goes back to 2002 but the files only to a year later, and anything older was scrapped long ago otherwise my history on this site will go back to pre-millennium days and a short spell under a different name probably best forgotten.

I can't remember. Maybe something to do with upgrading a component.

Some time in 2004-ish.

Hello again - good to see another name from way back is still here. Don't be a stranger.

Hi MAJ, thanks for the Hello, I hope you and all the other Members are enjoying a little bit of nostalgia.

I came here in desperation having bought a Mesh computer as a christmas present when the site was just up and running. The computer failed from start up and we were faced with no christmas present.

I still consider PCadvisors forums as the bench mark in running and moderating forums. Thanks for all the advice everyone, over the many years!

Just looked up 'my posts' - somewhere along the line, I must have had to re-register which is a shame as I would like to see my original posts. Is there anyway it can all be amalgamated (sp) to reflect the 12 years I have been a member?

I'm afraid not - we've had database problems recently, and frankly the last thing we want to do at the moment is tempt fate by making any changes.
