Do you remember your first... post on the BB?

Postby batty » Wed Jun 24, 2009 12:23 pm

With the arrival of the new BB (the fourth generation, IIRC), it suddeny dawned on me that I have been posting on this board [at variable frequencies] for almost 10 years!! Yup I was 16 when I first joined...

I first found the board because of its SA test/quiz. I then found the board, if I recall correctly (Tom may chime in on this) the board seemed only incidental to the whole site. And now look where are, it's the other way around. Nice to see that the discussion/conversation portion took over the "covermodel" contest portion of the site, hehe. So much time has passed however that I don't remember the exact nature of my first post (I do remember Lou's trademark "welcome post").

Just wondering if any of you guys remember why/how you joined the board and what your first post was about.

I was looking for porn and stumbled across the board. read a few posts and decided it was pretty cool here so started posting but have no clue what it was about. I too got the famous Furface welcome. It has to be about 8 years or so maybe more.

Why I joined : no clue whatsoever, maybe to get in touch with guys around the world?

When I joined : Nope, a complete blank again. Must have been quite a few years back. I remember being a boardmember when Pim Fortuyn got killed, that was May 6th 2002, and by then I was already known as "the Dutchie", but I wasn't (as far as I can recall) a member in September 2001 when I had my worst holiday ever, in Cleveland Ohio of all places! (returned home the Sunday before that fateful Tuesday), so my estimated guess would be late 2001/early 2002

First post : the usual; "Hi, I'm new here, and I'm from Holland blah-di-blah" and got the "welcome note" from Furface in which, that I remember, he sneaked in some Dutch (-sounding) sentences ("Babelfish" anyone"? :wink: ). My reply to thát got lost in translation, my belated apologies for that :(
As regards my first "real" post : nope, don't recall. Apparently did not make an impact.

I was chatting on another gay board and someone posted one of those coffee cups with their straight acting score.

That's how I found my way here. Can't remember my first post though.

I stumbled on the quiz, viewed the board and just started posting. I don't remember what I posted though.

Oh I'm sorry, ....what was the question again?

Oh yeah.....the quiz brought around here several years ago, can't remember for sure when. I checked out the BB but didn't post anything then forgot about it......then found it again.....checked out the BB...didn't post. LOL...FINALLY around 5 or so years ago I think it was I read enough to bookmark the site and lurked for a bit before posting. Not a clue about what though. I'm more the mundane or try to be funny poster. :D

Before the first board went down, I managed to save my very first post and it was a post about how I am afraid of dogs. I can't remember what the topic was but that was my response and Lou gave me his very warm welcome.

Yep, 9/27/01. I remember that because it was a day after my birthday and shortly after returning to MA from a trip to CA (hadn't moved there yet) with "big and little Mike". "Abermike" (who hasn't posted in years) knew Matt and Jason (Onut and Beachbum - also hasn't been around in a while) and we met up with them one night. "Little" Mike only posted here a few times I think but moved to CA a month after I did and many of you probably remember him from gatherings and other events.

As for my first post? I don't remember what it was exactly, probably just saying hi and introduding myself. At the time, I mistakenly signed up as "JS" (which stuck for a while) instead of my intended "JSF" (initials). I later decided to simplify it to "J".

Here's a pic from the trip @ 6 Flags Magic Mountain. L-R: Me, "little" Mike, Coyote, "big" Mike (aka Abermike)

The title of my "I'm New Here" thread had something to do with memorizing the value of pi to some number of decimal places.
