Ancient forum account unearthed!

I think this officially qualifies as the oldest forum account I have still in existence. I was able have the password resent to me so I was able to login. It's a phpBB community forums account.

Check it out:

phpbb

I reg'd that account 7 years and 10 months ago.

How I found out about the account is that a click-through showed up to one of my web sites from the phpBB boards, I clicked through the referer and ta-da, there was that ancient account profile. Amazing.

I thought, incorrectly, that the oldest account I had on those forums was from 2005. Nope. I had registered one 3 years prior in 2002.

Evidently I only logged in once, just once, and never went there again since that time until now. Why I did that I have no idea.

The one post I made on that forum was about - get this - Geocities and Yahoo! Small Business Web Hosting and how the SMTP didn't work with phpBB at the time.

Maaaaan is that stuff old. Haha. 🙂 2002 predates pretty much everything we know as norms now. Video sharing, photo sharing, social media.. none of that came until years later. In the blogging world, there was none save for LiveJournal.

As a small end note, I really, really wish I knew about LiveJournal back in '02 because I would have started blogging two years earlier. I officially started doing the blog thing in '04, but it would have been so cool to have had a head start. Oh, well. 🙂
