The Old Farts Of Airliners.net

Thu Jan 21, 2010 9:29 pm

So as I near my ten year airliners.net anniversary (*bows* thank you, thank you, no really thank you), I was wondering who some of the other oldies are still around. Granted, I took a nice little break from the forums, but now that I'm back (every now and then), I am curious who has been around a long time and even who has been around the longest. I'll start.

I joined airliners.net on February 2, 2000 at the spritely young age of 16! That's 9 years and 356 days! Whew.... where's my cane?

While only a registered member for almost 6 years, I contributed photos back in 1999 and read the forums for a few years before finally having the balls to register and actively participate in discussions. This place was intimidating back then. Back when many industry professionals with years of experience participated before eventually being run off by "know-it-all" 13-15 year-olds. And then, if you posted something that had already been asked, or forget a period in your sentence...BAM! Everyone jumped all over you.

But yeah, while my screen name doesn't say so, I have been here for over 10 years.

I joined (under my original ID) on January 27th 2000, so my 10 year anniversary is in just a few days.

I was once one of the more prolific photo uploaders on A-Net. Unfortunately I since moved to a place where the only planes are Delta, Delta, Delta, Delta, United, Delta, United, Continental...

Boooooring.

I had my ten year anniversary this past December. Started lurking around sometime in 1998 or so. I kept wanting to see the first pic of an AA 777 as I would be flying on one the summer of 1999. So, it was just before AA got their first 777, whenever that was.

When did this site become a pay site btw? Being senior-citizen here has it's benefits I suppose.  Wink

You got me by a month, I joined in March, 2000 during my Senior Year of College. I've actually been visiting the site since '98 but I only looked at the photos and never participated in discussions. I remember very early on the general aviation discussion forums were much more technical in nature.

I guess I joined in 2000. I don't look, but I know it says on my profile. The same time I joined this board, there was another guy in high school who was on, too. He lived near Green River Community College, I think and I lived near the casino. We never actually met, but he did meet my then partner.

At least DL/NW has different airplanes (737, A320, 747/757/767/777, etc). WestJet just flies the 737NG. At YYC, it's like this: WestJet, WestJet, WestJet, Jazz, Air Canada, WestJet, WestJet, WestJet, WestJet, oh look, British Airways/KLM/Lufthansa! Finally, some variety!

Anyway, I'm still a youngun, at 4 years, 217 days, having joined (free) June 19, 2005, a month after my 15th birthday, being First Class since December 25, 2006, and having read A.Net forums since before the FLAIRPORT debacle in Non-Av back in 2005.

My current username says I joined in November 2001, I am sure I joined before that under another username but I can't remember.

I was also an avid user of the chatroom.

I was also lurking the site since 1998, one day whilst having my english lessons my teacher started talking about the new (back then) 777, my interest for aviation was just developing and I have never heard of the 777 before, so full of curiosity I went on the net and looked on altavista (no google back then) for pics of the 777... and i was neatly redirected to this site.

Ever since I visit the site frequently, made some good friends and learned a lot and laughed a lot, never had trouble with anyone and just enjoy the site.

For some reason I get a real feeling of nostalgia when I think back to the days before paid-for signups. I can still remember the shit storm that ensued at the very suggestions that premium (i.e. paid-for) memberships MIGHT become a reality.

Mind you, things have changed drastically in the last 10 years or so. Things aren't half as much fun as they once were. I remember the days when we could waste a whole afternoon at work participating in many pointless threads, treating the forum almost like an instant messenger, with ridiculous amounts of slap-stick humour and innuendo.

I've even been the star of a few threads myself, such as the time I got my shoelaces caught in the castor of my office chair, or when I stapled myself to the photocopier.

Seriously though, I do remember how hostile some of the political discussions could get on this forum. It could have been Republicans vs. Democrats, Conservatives vs. Liberals, OR (the most heated) Israel vs. Palestine.

And yet we could have some civil discussions that included disagreements. Just ask Superfly! I remember when him and I used to butt heads about Israel vs. Palestine and yet we still respect eachother. It might be the La Canada, CA and Gary, IN connection! Yea man, woot woot.
