      Can you remember the first forum you joined and roughly when was it ?

      Mine was a forum called Hardware Demons and it was roughly 1998.

      Mine was in 2004 and I can't remember the name of it for the life of me but it was a support forum for hardware and software. I remember getting banned on there by a power mad moderator though because she didn't agree with some of my opinions which was what pushed me to open my own forum up :) few years later she was found out for who she was and banned from the forum and I got un banned but never bothered again after the problems they caused.

      Mine would be last 2007. It is the forum of a PTC site where members could post and talk about the site like posting their payout proofs.

      EASY!!! My first one was Z28.com. I joined in 2004 when I wrecked my old car and bought a 1995 Camaro Z28. It was the biggest Camaro forum at that time. I ended up becoming a big member there. I have over 10,000 posts before I ever stepped out to other forums. You couldn't pay me to go there now, though lol. Too many kids!

      Mommyclassifieds.com.

      It was a site for work at home moms to gather and talk about the work at home experience. It went out of business that first year but was an actually good forum. Just guess the owner was into too many projects and didn't have the time to manage her forum.

      She had three children, so i can see why she'd be in a time crunch.

      The very first forum I joined (back in the 90's) was... Inspiration & Information, but later it was renamed Safe Haven. At that time there were just 3 members, the lady who owned the forum, myself, and another lady.

      Mine was either suikox or suikosource, a Suikoden forum. (Both of them are dying unfortunately.)
      Either that or a forum I do not remember, I just remember joining as Redspot and something to do with the Teen Titans.

      Probably Ultimate-Guitar, I still go on there a lot. It's not as goofy as it was when I first joined like 5 years ago because the mods became more Nazi's on some of the outrageous stuff, but I still enjoy going there.

      The first one I've made was about promotion, but gave up on it because of other things in mind...

      My first one was a Pokemon forum. I wanted to change the theme of the site to a General discussion forum, but instead the members started to troll me. So I just gave my founder status to the other Admin. I left that forum and deleted my account. Made a new one that's more active,organized and better looking!
