    About a year or so, but my mind is being affected already. I feel for you. 😉

    I was banned for life from STW in 2005, just checked for the offending posts via Google. So that’s at least 8 years…

    10 years here. I remember when the site used to change appearance to match the mag every 3 months, anonymous posts for rude things/things you were too embarrassed to admit to, beer and sealoin etc.

    Issue 11 was the first I had bought, and I’d been on here a little while before that. But I never went on the gofar site. So sometime around 2001 ish for me I think.

    Three years for me.

    I was banned for life from STW in 2005,

    Thanks for the tip-off, let me get the hammer…

    2006. I only joined to plug a bike race that I was organising. 😕

    Think I have had the same name all the way through I have no recollection of changing it but it has been a while, time certainly has flown by, it’s odd to think how much different my life is since I joined.

    I know what you mean, I used to be interested in cycling!

    The weird thing is, when I was 21 I was working for a chap and after a 13 year break, I am now working with him for the first time since on a completely unrelated project! Maybe things haven’t changed so much…

    I joined when half the trails were closed due to foot and mouth.

    Minimum 10 years but my memory is shonky. 😳

    Only joined to promote ladies rides and to argue with simonfbarnes. 😉

    3 years or so–originally checked in to get some information on trails in Scotland and found it an enjoyable site & generally a good group, so just stayed around.

    I first trundled across singletrack when there was some scare about Ti front skewers snapping which I think would be 2005 or 6? I started of as MrTT but it used to to get picked up by the swear filter and got starred out so I let it lapse for a while. I rejoined after seeing the Joes Ridge photo in the 07 calendar. Changed my name after the hack.

    Since just before issue 1 & gofar I think, how long is that? My proudest moment was being 10th on the top ten posters chart when they used to publish it in the Mag

    At least 10 years. More like 13 or so, I think.

    Over 10 years,just missed Gofar IIRC,always been thejesmonddingo,apart from a brief spell as dingobaby,after an early hack.I used to use moderator13 when we had multiple ids and posted rude things after 22:00,when the mods were in bed after their cocoa.

    Just missed gofar days, long enough ago to remember beer and friends. 10 years? 11? Not sure.

    Nine years but took the opportunity to change my user name after the great crash. I miss the old forum.

    Over 10 years as it was in my last residence when I joined up. Was SingleTrackRocks, hence the current moniker – it all crashed and burned at one point and had to rejoin. More a big shitter than big hitter!

    Originally joined back in the gofar period as TimB. I lapsed for a few years during the mid-noughties. But now…. it appears I’m back.

    Wasn’t allowed my original moniker by the system though 🙁 , even with my original password. Although I gather there was an issue with the site security, which probably explains something.

    Please mods, may I have my original username please?

    About 10 yrs, mostly lurking. Only been into MTB’s for 7 or 8.

    Became aware of the site when it was still brown/yellow striped. Thought it was some sort of sysadmin tool for a long time, because it was permanently up on the monitors of the IT Admins where I worked 🙂

    Eventually twigged that it was actually the best timewaster on the whole of the internet, and after one of the aforementioned sysadmins (thanks BBSB!) sold me his old bike, I also got into MTB’s 🙂

    Was a regular on uk.rec.cycling (anybody else?) and remember when Singletrack magazine was set up by one or two of the regulars. I wasn’t that interested, as I didn’t ride off-road, so never bothered to follow it or the subsequent forum. Came to STW three years ago following a conversion to the muddy stuff. Changed username last year.

    when was GoFar, can’t remember. But i was there.

    Was a regular on uk.rec.cycling (anybody else?)

    and the various rec.cycling boards,

    oh and Mike Vanderman….

    For those who don’t know who Vanderman, it is amusing and scary!

    Since about 2003/4..?

    It’d be just as interesting to know how many people have changed username in their time on the forum.

    mrmo, you know he searches for his name? 😉

    Been here a while, scotiedog back before the hack, how long ago was that?

    I miss ‘Big Mike’ the chef from Worcester, does anyone know how he is doing?

    Not sure, but long enough to remember the ‘caught a burglar so I owned him with bombers’ thread.

    Also im sure I remember a mass flounce when stw created the chat forum.

    Well before the Great Hack, but can’t remember.

    Lost my original username too, which was a bummer.

    I was on Gofar and urc, and subscribed from issue 1. Didn’t really care if it was any good, just thought it was worth supporting people with the cojones to do the sort of thing most of us just talk about over a beer but never get around to.
