"BTC" being the mystical lost time "Before The Crash" of Feb, 2004.

I can only remember:

Greg
Me
BTE
Myron

Anybody else...?

(That was a funny day, Feb 4, 2004. I thought the world had ended. This was the only message board I was part of, back then. I could not believe that the entire ValiantComics.com went down the tube. Yes, it was "ValiantComics.com" long before it became "Valiantfans"....)

The "day the board returned" was Feb. 4, 2004. I think it had been down a while before I realized it was gone forever. I had to get a whole new everything... it was the hosting company that went down... Endore.com... thousands of customers.

Here is some internet archaeology of that event that affected thousands of website owners:

By the uninitiated, perhaps so.

I was on the original board. Can't remember if I used the same screen name but likely I did.

I did not register for the new boards until about a month after (March 2004) they were launched.

I might have the record of the longest time between posts - March 18, 2010 to June 30, 2018. And I had a break between 2007 and 2009 and 2004 and 2007.

I was a lurker and had an account. I can't remember the name. Might have been nycjadie. Might have been something else. I used it to buy some old pre-unity issues, and get info back in the day when I was trying to rebuild my collection after college.

I feel like I was haunting the forums since maybe 2004 but didn't register to start posting for some reason or another until '05.

Not me. I think I started reading the board late 2004.
Signed on 2005, then posted 2006. I just checked, it 7 months before my first post and second post.

But i know Magnus R was on original board. Well I think so.
