Who has been here since the 90s?

I am getting old.  Not for the faint of heart.

I was here before there was a here. The most senior huddler I can think of would be Big Country in 1997 pretty much from the first day.

I'm another '03 guy to the forums.

 

I think I was using the content here, late 90s, just before the Huddle became a full pay site. 

 

Maybe I have it mixed up with another one, not sure.

 

Mr. Dorey, when did the Huddle become a full pay site? Or has it always been one?

The Huddle was a free site from opening in 1997 until June of 2000. That was when the internet advertising fell apart and we were killing ourselves and losing money doing it. So we started charging in June of 2000 on the premise we'd do it for one year and if we made no money we'd quit. But we made money. Which was cool. So we kept going as pay site from 2000 - It was $12 a year when we started.

Pretty sure my original start date was either 1999 or 2000, but my profile got lost somewhere in the shuffle, so I have no true accurate start date. All I know is I was using the site before there was a membership fee. Geez, has it really been that long?!  (thats what she said)

I was sure I didn't wait a year and a half before I sent my money.

At one point I had username #4, after Whitney, David, and Carl. (Pretty sure it was Carl the programmer/sys admin).

 

Test drove the new messageboard with an all-nighter called "Riff's Place" that was hidden from the public while testing out the functionality. David, Muckrakers, and Skippy showed up to Riff's Place.

 

Back in the day I had a free Huddle hat from David and a free Mr Football t-shirt from Dodds (before FBG).

How's ol' Skippy doing?

He got old. Health issues. Rarely posts much anymore, but gets out in the wilderness plenty. Nature picture fanatic.

That all sounds right. I wonder what MrFootball.com resolves to now?
