It just dawned on me that in March I will celebrate my 20th Anniversary on Tidefans. I know we have some folks already hit their 20th.

Is there a way to see this? I remember some folks with 1999 as start dates.

I tried looking for a list I could sort by date, but I haven’t had any luck.

So, if you have hit the 20 year mark.....kudos.

Congratulations!

I've lost a few log-ins due to early meltdowns, but think my 20th will come some time in 2021.
i think i had set up a user id right before the big board crash, in 99 i think. i can't remember for sure, but i discovered the board sometime during the '98-'99 timeframe. i never actually posted until after i rejoined in may 2000

I'm thinking I've been here the longest :D

I've said it before but I still remember the EXACT moment I pressed the proverbial "make it live" button while hoping somebody actually showed up :D

Of course, we did have the BamaNation.com site before this but it was held together with chewing gum and toothpicks and wasn't really a message board, per se.

Thanks for sticking around and inviting your friends (keep doing so!), supporting TF in many ways including TideFansStore.com purchases, Amazon purchases, but also just showing up everyday to read and post...and by making TideFans.com what it is and always has been... Home of the BamaNation! I hope you all appreciate all the hard work of the mods and admins - even if you've been "arrested" by them :D I also hope you appreciate the incredible advances in technology from Day 1 of TideFans.com until now.

If you ever wanted to go back and see what the site looked like way back when... the waybackmachine.org archive site has a glimpse starting in Nov 1999.

You’re the Law and Order of college sports boards. And so glad I found you.

I survived the server crash of 1999, but per the "new" count, I will hit my 20 on July 22. We really should get a badge of honor or something... Where is our Benevolent Dictator when we need him? :ROFLMAO: Brett...?

You're right. I'll try to work on this!

Amen to that, brother. I'm a 2004 refugee from a poorly-moderated board. Begged the owner to change. He essentially said he agreed with me, but would lose subscribers if he toned down what passed for discourse. So he lost me.

Second-best breakup of my life, behind only my last college girlfriend -- a face from an Ivory Soap box, a Trumpian need for control, a heart from the South Pole, and the brain to know which buttons to push. A no-foolin' dangerous woman.
