Nope, it was around before that.

It was FECC but it was before it was turned into this style of forum.

Rich,

As long as I've been here, it seems to have always been this kind of forum. Or was there another incarnation of it long before I was here?


EDIT: I see that FECC hasn't always been a forum site:

Early FECC Forum

FECC as a website was created around 1994. Later on they added a forum, I think it was around 1999. Then the forum got too big and needed a better "forum" That's when they changed to the current format in 2003.

It's hard to believe that just this site, itself, has been around for over TWENTY years! WOW!!

It's been a long time....

Yeah, it is true 20 years. We started ours in February 1996

You once had a forum like this at your site...did you decide to just shut it down?

Re: what year was FECC created

Yeah - forum was 1999. There used to be a chatroom too but that was shut down.

Been some characters on here over the years!

There have been some interesting and overall very wonderful people who have come through here over the years - for one, "Little Darlin'." I always enjoyed seeing her posts - and there was "Carolyn" - she's missed, too....of course, with the good, there's usually a bad apple in the bunch.

And I just realized that I've been here for 11 years since this format was started. I had been around before that, though.

After reading old topics, I came across a character named Graceland Gardener.
You could say his posts were close to the knuckle! I assume he was banned. Did he return, is he still here?
Was he one the original members on here?

Funny. That was the user that came into my head as I was flicking down this page. I just about remember the old forum - I joined a couple of months before the changeover, I guess.

Sure had some characters on here over the years.
