    Ten years of MTBR

    I just realized that I've been a forum member for TEN YEARS.

    That's plain nuts.

    Were you new to the sport of mountain biking when you joined MTBR 10 years ago or just new to MTBR?

    About the same time I joined. The group was very tight and I didn't get accepted for years. Can't remember how many times Pete flamed me.

    I date back from before the Big Bang when they reset. All the stuff I said from back then was lost. It was brilliant. What a shame.

    Me too.

    I love how people would post as someone else but the "IP Police" would often nail the culprit. HAHAHA

    Small group back then but the board was way fun.

    Yeah......that "Join Date" is bogus for many of us. There are still some of us here who were posting in the 90's when it was all very new. That date thing happened much later and I faintly remember one week having a "2003" join date and then it switched to "2004" very quickly if you didn't register in time or whatever. I forget.

    Meh............whatever. I poke my head in now and again but don't really post too much any more. I still think it's a great site. Loads of cool stuff to read.

    Hey Ska...why the name Ska? Ska is my favorite genre of music.

    I certainly wasn't one of the originals, but I do remember the first thing I read on here was a Reed and Woody post from stories.

    I want to meet Trixie one day.

    For ten years you're a little lite on the green chicklets, gave you a boost as best I could for an anniversary gift.

    Well...............once upon a time, there was this thread which called for handle history and in that thread............hahaha j/k

    I am a huge music nerd (music of many types) but a very long time ago, it occurred to me that my initials (S.K.A.) spelled out the work ska (music that I too enjoy immensely) so I used it as a handle here all those years ago. Originally however I used "Ska!" as my handle but recently MTBR forced me to drop the '!' and it actually bummed me out (I posted about that I think at the time. LOL I was disappointed! LOL). That was my handle for so long I had grown accustomed to it. I've used that handle on one or two other forums as well but it is, for the most part, unusable nowadays as it is too short or often has already been registered.

    Anyway, it's my initials and I dig the music :-)

    I think I started posting on mtbr in about 2000 or 2001, long enough ago to remember the old format. My username originally was "SWISS" but I changed it at some point. And I remember that "explain your user name" thread. I remember getting chewed out by sslos about my then-passion for PBR. I used to post quite a bit in the Idaho forum, but since the advent of Facebook, it's been easier to get local knowledge and discuss local issues there. I still visit the product topic pages quite a bit for product info and it's always fun to see other people's bike builds in the manufacturers' sections.

    congrats. Here's to another 10 years for you....

    I got in to mountain biking just recently. Took a trip to Oregon and was just leisurely biking on a paved trail and was hooked.

    I miss the mad archivist, stolen posts and falme wars.

    I've been flamed by Fagerlin. That was fun. I felt pretty important.
