I'll have been here for ten years this September.  It doesn't feel like a decade to me.  I wish I had been here from the start, but I was a latecomer to the internet.  Reading all the old topics when I joined the Staff was very informative though.

I’ll have been here ten years come October, but I still feel like a young un.

You can find it on the Wayback When Machine, or at least you used to be able to.  There's an old topic about this in another board which you'll probably be able to find ;).

I took a year off EldarOnline at some point in there. The transition to 40kOnline happened during my sabbatical.

Yeah you disappeared from May 2002 until August 2003. I remember Eldar Online but I never became a member as I was already on Games Workshop's old forum. Did Eldar Online end in 2003 then?

Did everyone that was a member of EO have to sign up to become a member of 40konline?

I joined 40konline in mid 2005 when the GW forum got taken down. If anyone remembers the GW forum as well I was Clujo on there.

Essentially, 40K Online was a merger of the old Eldar Online and 40K.ca forums.  It didn't involve existing members having to create new accounts.

Eldar Online and 40K.ca ended in 2004, although I'm not exactly sure when.  You'll need a truly gnarled penguin to be able to impart that piece of information.

This was actually the first site I ever joined period.  We were very late comers to the Internet.  Didn’t upgrade to broadband until 2007.

I joined during my military service in 2009, I believe, though I'd been lurking for probably at least a year before then.

Positively toddlerian on my part, yes.

I joined after Portent.net died, and all your lives were enriched thanks to my knowledge of the W40K rules, hilarious wit and infamous kindness to fools.

Ah, the good old days...

Afraid not, not for the past eight or more years. Now and again an old timer will pop up and say hello before returning to their slumber. There's not a lot of us left from 2002 or prior.

You're of 2006 heritage Starrakatt and you're most definitely not an Ancient :P.  It's good to see you though :).

Actually, if your membership number is over 10,000 you don't even get to pretend your knees hurt in the morning. beslubbering want-to-bes.

Thank you gentlemen.

Not being active, just hopping on the forums a couple time a year, I have NO idea about anything GW these days, and not really interested tbh, too much of a time commitment.

Also, who wants to be an anciant anyway, snobish peacocks needing to move their underused prostates in a wheelbarrow?

Nah.

Hey Try, whilst you might not be considered an Ancient by some standards it is nice to know you are still about and looking in on us. Know any good rumours?

Like the 40K Funko pops? Looks like April 30th for those.

Not sure I count that as a good rumour. Don't see the appeal myself.
