I can't imagine who would still come here after all that time.

    I joined Ants in April 2002. Fan since '99. I was on Minarets.org first. I'm a UK fan so had to wait until 2006 before I saw my first show.
    Damn, I'm old.

    Definitely a "younger" member but since 2008. Sure was different back then. Sad to see time progress and things change.

    I used to be on nancies and the dmbml site. I actually thought this site started when dmbml went away. That's when i signed up.

    I’m still here… more of a “observer” than “contributor”. I enjoy reading how utterly wrong people are about the band from time to time

    Still out here lurking. I remember making a thread in the new album sub-forum for Big Whiskey asking if it was on par with BS, would the community be happy. Turns out everyone was initially happy, until it got played into the ground.

    Re: how many 'old timer' Ants left on the boards?

    been mostly lurking for a long time. love the live show but am drawn towards the possibilities of what could be a new release... probably always hoping to recapture the feelings generated in me by dmb in my high school years (96-00) and my obsession with the summer 2000 songs and tLWS. i chase the idea of a new DMB album like an unrequited love.

    Re: how many 'old timer' Ants left on the boards?

    2003 checking in. I was brought here by my friend DMBTreb in 2003 I believe. I was also over on Nancies.org for a while too. I have left ants for a year or two here and there, but mostly I have been consistently posting since 2005ish.

    I always think about the future of this forum. It has obviously noticeably diminished in traffic over the years. I often wonder if there will come a day when no one is left. Until then, I will be here I am sure.

    I still come for the ndmb. The site’s traffic has diminished with the band’s greatness. Once Boyd was gone there seemed to be a lot of the holdouts that seemed to use it as the final out.

    Not an old timer, used to check sets here consistently '08-'11, crazy I didn't create an account until '19.

    Saw that most users ever online at once was 2015. Curious when the heyday for traffic on this site was? My guess would have been 2008- was it really only 7 years ago?

    Joined Nancies in December '02, joined here July '03. And looking now at the date I noticed I joined the day before my first kid was born. I don't post much, but still check out things every few days.

    Re: how many 'old timer' Ants left on the boards?

    I joined in 2003 I think? I had a different username at the time, took a break from Ants after stand up, then forgot what my username/email I used for the site was. So I created a new one.

    Was on Nancies before that. Oh and DMBML as well (probably 1997-2000). I was also a part of a few smaller boards. There was one site called Tripping Billies that had a small group of people that chatted a lot. Made some good friends there.

    One thing I remember about Tripping Billies was in 1998 when the tour dates were announced, someone (the site owner perhaps??) wrote an open letter to the community complainting about the stadium dates and how DMB was selling out.

    Those were fun times. Especially around the BTCS release.

    Sorry for rambling. YOur post took me down memory lane.
