Since 4 years and 99 days, a lurker/photo viewer maybe for two months longer.

I joined as a "normal member" (without having to pay to join), then I became the first First Class Member ever (I still have the eMail from Johan)  Wink and in March last year I became a forum moderator (actually a stressy job for a side job but I like it very much, we're a great team and I enjoy working in it!).  bigthumbsup

I discovered this site one magical evening, probably 3 or 4 years ago. I couldn't believe the quality of the photos I saw and spent a good few months browsing them. Then for some reason I kind of neglected anet for about a year, and re-discovered it in early 2004. I had my first photo accepted in June of last year, and joined the forums in November. Today I have 60 photos in the database and visit the forums every day.

Sorry, I didn't mean to give you my life story  Wink.

I have been a member of this fine site for the following period of time>>


I have been a member for
3 years 332 days ago

in a similar style to Sabena I ask to become a paying first class member as soon as that feature became available


On April 13, 2004 I was offered a position as a moderator which I accepted the same day

Earlier this year I was offered a position as a head moderator which I also accepted.

And after all this time and 26,910 A.net emails I still am proud to be a part of this site

Did we indeed receive/exchange 26,910 eMails since both of us started our duty as a moderator on the same day?

I know that we have to deal with a lot of eMails every day but this is simply incredible!!!  Wow!

Come again?

You waste that much time worrying about someone else's finances? Sad.

But even if I have another active user name (which is up for debate), if it was We're Nuts, there is no charge associated with that account. That account, along with many others here, was created before the charge went into effect.

I've been a member for 63 days (at the time of posting) and supposedly I've been first class since 1970! As for lurking/photo addictions, I've probably been doing that for 8-10 months.

Speaking of the time we've been on here, can anyone remember how they found a.net? I personally can't remember, I think I was looking for a photo of a plane so ran a search in Google and Airliners.net was about 3-4th link down.

Aaah the joys of a.net addiction!  Silly

I've been a forum member for 5 years, 208 days. Went first-class when it became available.

I've been an avid pic viewer for about two years before that. A.net has always been the best site on the internet, in my opinion.

160 days ago (March 7, 2005). Although I'd been lurking the photos for at least about 6 months before realizing there was another way on this site to avoid doing work.

I've been here for 6 years, 37 days. I joined on 10 July 1999. I probably was looking around from about March that year. Been First Class since 20 August 2002. Wow, almost three years. So, $5/month x 12 months/year x 3 years equals...*gulp* $180. Not that bad. Though that's almost an iPod  Smile

I can remember visiting this site way back in the early days (would have been 97 or 98) when it was the old, old, old design. I think I started visiting regularly in 2000, and I joined up on September 10 2000 (just before heading off on a school trip to france - I meant to post a trip report, but never got around to it...).

I was fairly regular up until the beginning of 2002, when I was without a computer for some time. I put my name forward to be a mod just before that (not realising I'd have nearly 2 months of no internet access)... When I finally got it back, was rather bemused to see I had been accepted, but then had missed out because I never had access...

I was sort of on and off for a while then, but came back at the end of 2003... Just in time to get my name up for being a mod again, and I have been here ever since (complete with the 26,910 emails IHAP and Sabena332 mentioned  faint  )

It's certainly been an interesting nearly 5 years - I certainly know a lot more about all things aviation because of this site...
