    Hey, how long has everyone been a regular here? I have been here for a
    little over 2 years now (first as rmpii, now Whitecrest)

    I am seeing fewer and fewer of the regulars that use to frequent here
    Dan (from Spain)
    Chip (Colorado I think, he had some good Christmas stories)
    Even ISO has not been around.

    Must have gotten bored with the same old threads. Different Subject
    titles, same content... over and over and over.....

    Eventually you will all come to the DARK side! behoaaahaaaaaahaaaa

    Long enough to have thought that the subject line meant a spam for Viagra :)

    Interesting thought, and one which I could not remember! The Google groups
    archive has my earliest post as being 1999 way back when I was all of
    17yo, and it was also interesting seeing what I posted!

    Javascript browser redirection, DHTML flying text effects, if it's tacky
    then you betcha I mentioned it :)

    I would say thats probably a good part of it:

    In most newsgroups (most but not all) you could visit for awhile, then leave
    and come back a year or more later... when you return there will be some
    discussions that are the same old ones still going on, but there will be
    plenty of new ones

    Around here thats not the case: when you first arrive here its all new and
    there is plenty to talk about, but after you've been here for 2 or 3 months
    you see that the posters are different, but the questions and comments are
    pretty much the same... they are so much the same questions and "help"
    requests that this is pretty much one of those groups where if the FAQ was
    really good and people bothered to read it, there would be very little
    activity in the group (there would be some, but not as much)

  7. A little over two years, but I lurk more than post, as it gets boring
    when the same questions repeat over and over again... all in all I gleen
    more info from lurking than from becoming involved with posts... and
    again I come from the far corners of the unknown web known as WebTv
    Land... so probably many still distaste my comments (unfortunately)...

    Google shows my first posth here as being June 5th 2003, so not very
    long. I think I came around the time most of the oldbies left.

    I know I do. I've thought about programming a bot to answer the
    repetitive questions before, but never had the time.

    I have lurked here since 1998.......one reason the questions and comments
    are familiar is the discipline
    the members of Alt html have in keeping discussions on topic. I came here
    with a WebTV, changed to a computer, Learned a little html, got some style
    (sheets), and will eventually have a tableless layout for my site.
    This group gives my computer a personality that changes, even if the content
    doesn't :>)

    First post recorded in Google Groups is Jan 25 1998, so I've just had
    my six years anniversary. But that was cross-posted from ciwah. I
    don't think I read alt.html regularly until the autumn of 2002.

    first post as 30th January 2003.

    I've been lurking regularly and posting occasionally since the day the Jean
    Van de Velde blew his lead in the British Open, so... *checks Google for
    date*... that puts me at Sunday, July 18, 1999.

    So, 4.5 years, but it seems much longer. My first post, I believe, was
    about the frames I was using for my first website ("The Humor Archive", no
    longer available) and someone, I think John or JH or some name with a "J",
    steered me away from frames, and I've never looked back :).

    My oldest posting archived there is from 1999/08/31.

    You could check groups.google.com and make a nice little table for all
    of us to look at :->.

    Top posting bastard! ;-)

    My earliest appearance on a.h seems to be Feb 2001. Thought I'd been here
    longer than that... There are posts to other groups dating back to 2000,
    back when I had a 10 line sig! (ooh, the shame!)

    I've been lurking/posting since May 2003 at alt.html.critique, and later at
    alt.html
    in fact my first critique request was for a website that used tables for
    layouts,
    it probably had frames to.
    It’s a good thing that this group and alt.html.critique exists, I’ve learned
    a great deal.
    Without it I would probably still use tables for layout, use frames, forget
    about alt tags,
    ignore headers tags and use pixels for font size.
    I sure can recommend this group.

    Just in case i didn't thank the people who helped me, explained stuff to me
    and other things:
    a big thanks for the help !

    Regards,
    Samuël van Laere

    Since early 2003, although I could be found on some of the c.i.w.a.*
    groups back through to 2001.
