I believe I can take that title. I've been aound since pic#3000 and since when there were only just over a few more than a dozen members. The only long time member I can think of that may beat me out of this is Iainhol.

Iainhol...Your user profile says that you joined 350 days ago. My user profile says that I joined 476 days ago. Looks like you're third...

We must remember that those dates in our profile aren't correct for all of us. There have been many versions of the forum software, with only the day since we signed up for the latest version being there. I, along with others such as Iainhol and Avion were here long before this software started.

I also remember FedEx and N4KHGirl from long ago, but neither, along with Farhan Ali, come here any longer.

I have no idea when I first joined. I know it's longer than the user profile suggests though. When I first joined I remember FlyF15, Mirage, L1011, Julia, N4KHgirl, AviationMan, amongst some others. I think it was around the end of 1998.

Aloha!
My profile says I havn't been here long, but I've changed my username thousands of times. Look up username "Brandon" on the search option, that'll take you to my first post, back in 1997 or 1998 I think. At that time Iainhol was British Airways 747, I remember chatting with him long ago under the name of Fly 757-200!
I remember CV880 and CV990, Mirage, NK4HGirl, L1011, Hmmmm...., AVION!!!! He's been here forever!!, and others.
Does anyone remember when every other post on this forum was a JETPILOT post? now you only see him maybe once a month, if that. Remember Johans, who alwyas got confused with the Administrator?
Anyone recall when the Admin used to join in the posts and chat with us, now he's only there to delete posts?

Man, how the days have flown.

Yes, what ever happened to KLM 777? I get the feeling he was banned since he doesn't even have a user profile anymore. Same with barnaby. Their posts were always enjoyable.

My profile says I've been here 442 days. This is about right, as I joined in May of 1999. So 365 would bring me to that day, plus 77 would give you 442. 77 days would bring us to today. I also boot Iainhol off.

I was here a month before Mirage in Oct. We where here when the forum was really slow, then it got faster (newer software)but we had no password protection. A couple times some one used some one elses name (by accident). Then it came like it is know. I have had a couple names know, I started as Iainhol, then FedEx got me to change to Virgin Atlantic, then it become BA747, then back to Iainhol (which was 350) days ago. Avion, N4KHgirl might beat me but I am not sure.
Just for you news on a couple old timers.
I spoke to FedEx a couple months ago (in May) and he is doig pretty good. He got his license back and living in Arizona (I think). And his operation went really well.
Some of you might also remember Will. He is doing really well also, he is actually working for my dad. They meet thanks to this forum!
Also for you old timers do you remember the infamous Aviator_UA.
I hope you guys understand how I have been here longer then you know!

Hey Iainhol, that Aviator_UA was really a hell of a story, good for a Hollywood movie.
I remember a guy named Willy but from Australia, I miss him, he was very friendly. Also I remember MD-11, Peter from Finland, good person. I would like to know how are they lifes now.... good memories

Aviator_UA was booed of by CX747 who found out a conspiracy theory.

As for old members i rememeber Air_Chick_757 and Bryan G. They were all very nice people. Also i liked the old-old forum software much better even though it was very slow! Also the old forum used to be a much nicer place!

So who is in the club:

I think Iainhol, Mirage, Cedarjet, Flyf15, N4KHGirl and me (Avion). We are the oldest users here!

Nope, I don't remember the date I came in, but I added my first pic after I joined the forum, and it is #3553. Still remember my first question too "Does anybody have any information on the FedEx hub in Greensboro?" took 4 days to get an answer, and I was estatic!

Iain, yeah I remember Aviator_UA...how could I forget! I still talk to FedEx every once in a while (like every few weeks). Does Will still live in NZ?

I remember Will. He was a friendly guy. If I remember correctly, he was from Australia and his girlfriend (who was an FA) also posted on here. Remember her? I think Will had an argument with somebody and refused to post anymore.

Cedarjet was not here when I joined. I think he came a few months later.

Remember Dash8? He was a pilot from Netherland Antilles.

Anyway, i don't really remember the exact day i joined, but i remember one of my 1st questions was about how many engines the 727 had.. or something like that   Is there anyway we can still access the Old Old Old Old forum? (i think it'd be funny to read some of our old posts)...

Here's a link to the first post of the forum in its current format, on October 21, 1998 : https://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1/

I see that the highest "Joined Airliners.net" days tallies seem to be 499 days, which corresponds to May 18, 1999. There must have been some change to the Profiles software on that date.

I just want to know what happend to Colin Kumpin (American MD-80)?? That kid was really the demise of intelligent conversation on A.N

All his postings about airline cups, napkins, and plates just really brought this place down..
