How old is LucasForums?

I was digging around the members area for the oldest member and it has members with really odd names for pages and pages. Did the creation of this website really start in 1969 or is that just a big goof?

Lucasforums has been around at least since 1996/1997, before that I recall it was an RPG forum of sorts? The elder moderators/members could elaborate more in depth.

Well... LucasForums didn't exist until 2001. Basically what LucasForums was when it started is a collection of different forums which were once separate forums for each site that owned by the LucasArts Fan Network.

I think the Jedi Knight forum was the first and there were quite a lot of other ones. It's the reason why we have different forum sections with their own community and off-topic areas and everyone ends up being a little spread out.

2001 seems consistent with what I remember from 2004, not feeling too new.

From what I recall, LucasForums started when JediKnight.net and Mixnmojo.com decided to integrate their forum systems to create a common community between the Star Wars and original LucasArts game communities.

At the time, I was the founder of Valley of the Jedi, which what a competitor of jk.net, but joined up with LucasForums to help out with LucasGames. That was to be a unified site for all things LucasArts, but ultimately didn't get the following that the individual sites did.

JediKnight.net started in 97/98, around the same time votj.com and mixnmojo.com got going. Man that was the early days of... just about everything internet related

...I'm hardly the oldest member here and yet I realize I've been here...8 years in Dec, though I wasn't active at all in '07 and most of '08.

Dayum.

It's been a long time & still keeps going long after George Lucas is gone.
