Post counts aren't either, apparently.
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.

I think Ivar must have accessed the board from a different time zone than yours. My screen shows he joined Dec 31st, 1999 at 11:59pm.

I've been going to the valiant themed websites since 1994, I remember when this site started, but there was not a message board until 2002, which went down for like a week, which still doesn't make sense why it says since 2004

The original 2002 ValiantComics.com messageboard lasted about 18 months on the same server with the ValiantComics.com reference website (registered in 1999). That internet hosting company was Endore, which closed unexpectedly in early 2004, and thousands of websites disappeared. I had backups of the reference pages and database, but not a backup of the messageboard. So, I started a "fresh" new Valiant fans messageboard (this one) in February 2004 about a week later. None of the posts on the old 2002-2004 board are here.

The ValiantFans.com domain was registered in 2004 to separate the messageboard from the ValiantComics.com reference pages and price guide, etc.
