    20 Years of TideFans.com

    In the midst of my wallowing in misery over the past 24 hours, I recalled that 2019 is the 20th year of TideFans.com!

    Thanks to all of you who have been around from the beginning and all of you who joined in over those 20 years. We're grateful.

    Also a big shoutout to our admins and mods who do yeoman's work each and everday (and twice on Saturdays ). I appreciate you !

    RTR! The road to #18 begins again.

    I was a poster back in the early BamaNation era (another username I can't recall) and remember you provided links to what seems like at least over a dozen other UA websites run by devoted fans. Dr Feelgood and Lady in Red were two among the many others. I wonder how many of those are still going. Lady in Red is one that I know is. She provides a great source on Alabama players in the NFL.

    The greatest site on the interwebs. Glad I can be a part of it. Hope I can be a mod or something one day.

    20 years already! Wow! I don't post much, but I read pretty much every day. Thanks for all you and the mods do, Brett!

    I found the first iteration of this site way back when and joined. We were living in Nashville at the time and it was a "link to home." I remember the Great Crash and having to re-register. I'm really floored that it's been that long! My oldest son is 19. Reading Tidefans predates having kids for me.

Thank you so much for making TideFans available to us...for all the effort of everyone behind the scenes that makes this forum so amazing! Although Iíve never personally met any of you I feel like you are my brothers and sisters. Letís raise a glass to another 20 years!!!

    Wow. I have been here for just over 15 years. I joined in December 2003. I didn't post much in my early days, but have become pretty regular. I read every single day (probably too much). Congrats on 20 years of being the best board on the net.

    I didn't register until 2009, but been lurking since 07'. either way I'm thankful for this board. It is one of only 3 websites I visit regularly every time I get online. I check Tidefans more than my facebook. Love you guys, look forward to another 20!

    thanks a lot brett. this is a well run board and it is amazing you have kept it going so well all these years.

    i started reading in 99 and joined soon after. iirc, there was a big crash/redesign around that time.

    I started reading TideFans 3 years before I joined.
    No idea why I didn't join in 2005. I should have.
