His name is wjg Regs, he had no posts, and he's been here from '69! Amazing, I tell you.

More info (http://www.lucasforums.com/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=1839)


I have been wondering, why join if you don't post? Is it just for fun? Because it seems that 3/4 or so of the members haven't a single post.

:confused:

People, use your heads. ARPANET, what the original internet was called (and was only really used to communicate between gov't agencies and some university libraries) wasn't brought online until 1969.

AOL and some other ISPs first appeared as BBS's around 1985. And the internet wasn't really publicly available until 1992, when Delphi became the first ISP to offer commercial and private connections.

I think that some of the admin's and moderators here like to play jokes - they can change join dates to whatever they like.

Unless you're somewhat new to the forums, such as myself. I had no idea, but then again, I don't go looking through the users.

You assume too much. LucasForums: Founded December 30, 1969.

So, if you're telling the truth. Was it just an idea thought up by some guy on paper. And ummn who was the founder. If youre telling the truth. Which by the way i cant really tell. Was it like an e-mail fan club thingy. Im confused:p

there is no way those members joined in 1969 because a lot of them have references to jedi, stormtrooper, palpatine, vader, and boba while these things were not created until 1977

No, YOU knew about them in 1977...but that means nothing.

And another well guarded secret is that these forums are powered by Rhett's used pants.

Well, not so secret now.

JediKnight.net itself wasn't founded until 1997 and that was that start of it all pretty much.

LucasForums weren't founded until much later, but the message boards went through various software versions and layouts until we have what we have today (combined with MixnMojo's forums to make "Lucasforums.com"). ; )

And technically you could trace Star Wars to 1976, when the novel came out.

I believe that the man in charge is XeroXcape. Then comes ChrisC3PO. I think I remember that from a thread long ago.

I think the oldest person I see normally here, is Kurgan, from Dec 1997. When basically everything strated. But It says gonkh8ter joined in 1985. But you knpw the truth. He joined in like 2001 or 2002. Also o think it mentions XeroXcape tracing back to 1969. Except it all doesnt make sense that everything was created before any of lucas's creations were known or published. I may be wrong on that though. But if Regs was indeed the first member here. Wouldnt that make him the grand puba. WEll not now, since he never posted. But way back when.

And he never even posted anything?

1969? Come on. You can't seriously beleive that can you.I don't think Gore invented the internet yet. Besides, that was 34 years ago and you would then have to assume that he was at least 47-49 years old.

AFAIK, Aristotle is the head honcho here. Then Stealth was also a big wig but I haven't seen him in a long time. this was also before the big merger though.

But, I thought that it was ZeroZcape, then ChrisC3PO, then Aristotle. O well. Does it go Aristotle, then Zero, then Chris?

Im now starting to doubt this stuff. But it could be that when LF was made as an actual forum. He changed his information:) . And the original LF was like a fan club with like actual mail that came and had like news. And that maybe Georges original movie was the main focus, then when other stuff came along it was added. Who knows, we may never find out.

It's the standard date used for imported user databases where reigstration date wasn't recorded. Set as -1 I believe, therefore it ends up as the day before Epoch (Jan 1, 1970 on Unix machines).

You sometimes have to register just to view these forums. Often times you can find the information you need by just looking around, without asking.

I can't even remember when I registered with jediknight.net, now. I think it was early 1999, or maybe late 1998. Damn these old grey cells...playing tricks on me again...

Back when I was just a member or RSN and XWA and then joined JK.net I thought Aristotle was the man. As I had never seen Zero or Chris before.

but when the whole LFN joined up maybe Zero and Chris took over. Who knows. Might need to ask one of them just to be sure.

At approximately 12,321 days since December 31st, 1969, and having 50 posts, that puts his PPD at approximately 0.004058.
