    1. Thank you, Jason.
    2. Any idea what date you launched the site in 1999?
    3. Who was the second (assuming you were the first) user to join?
    4. Any fun early site days stories?
    5. How long ago did the site crash and we have to start anew? I’m guessing about 10 years now.

    @Jason

    On a tangential note, I’ll probably come out for the playoffs again either this season or next. Last time I bought four tix and ended up selling those to four users here (fish, Siro, BP, and ?) as I proceeded to buy 13th row, dead halfcourt tix for $400 a pop with my buddy who came and use those instead. Unreal ****ing seats. Anyway, my point is, I think it would be epic if we could get like 20-30 of us to go to a playoff game.

    I think I joined in 2001. Aside from Jason, the only person that I think has probably been posting from the beginning, who is still posting now, is @carolinajazz. Perhaps @Eenie-Meenie predated me as wasn't he Northeast? @One Brow may have been around since then. I remember a Hipster Doufus, Daedalus, now that I think of it @JFFR was around well before me, too, then a bunch of people I forget. I'm pretty sure that @seattlejazzfan is the same person who went by S? If so, he's been around much longer.

    He was. But Northeast became someone else. Did Northeast become write4u? I dunno. Hopefully someone can clarify.

    I was write4u until I accused OneBrow of being Aintnuthin, but I got so much grief I changed to Eenie-Meenie. I still believe OneBrow was Aintnuthin. He still denies it.

    Unless you’re wanting the annual rehashing of this event, I’d not mention it.

    Where @LifeOnaPlate was the one that introduced me to the site, but the gimmicky name of Gay Vegan Communist was just too lol for me not to continue reading.

    Summer of 1999 was very early days or months so JFFR has to be one of our first still around. I think he was like 8 years old at the time though living in Reno. Catzies probably beat him here. It was slow going those first few years. Wasn’t until we became the Utah Jazz forum on Rivals and RealGM that things took off. Check out the internet archive for fun memories.

    I’d love to do a Nite Out again but it’s always a lot of “I’ll be there” until the money comes due. Got a bunch of tickets when Utah played the Warriors in the second round a few years back and lost my shorts on them.

    I’ve enjoyed a lot of this community over the years and am grateful for *most* of you. Thank you for joining and participating. I know the act of joining and then the act of participating are both daunting steps so hopefully more of you lurking out there can hop in here and say hello. Be a part of the next 20 years!

    Thank you!
