I just checked mine and it was Feb 2nd 1999 ... not quite sure what happened to those two decades. All that time I've been meaning to find time to make more positive contributions to the boards. One of these days...

In the meantime, I'm sincerely grateful to everyone in the community for all your advice, inspiration and wisdom over the years.

16 years, old habits die hard and there’s someone in my head and it’s not me.

I can't remember when I joined TMF - think it was November 2000, or possibly 2004. Oh, I don't know.
It was long ago, and far away (and so much better than it is today)

I did save a screen shot of my TMF profile , but lost it when my hard drive failed. Doh!

I joined the dot com in 1999. Dot co dot uk probably earlier.

I remember meeting Andy Bell at TMF UK offices as he was about to launch A J Bell.

He might have been raising funds - should have gone for that!

Your TMF USA profile still exists but it is certainly not the same thing.

Your Water Cooler comment says Exodus.

Ah thanks both -30 May 2001 eh? How time flies.
I think my first post (re Brakspears brewery IIRC) was somewhat later, possibly Nov 2002

With only 3 months to go, I doubt you’ll have any chance on getting a consensus in such a short timescale. ;)

Ah, I wasn't thinking of a social on that date - just 'this year', assuming be are unlocked and de-tiered eventually
