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

going through the 'new album' thread made me wonder how many 'old timer' Ants are still engaged on the boards....i took a break from dmb and ants after Away From The World, got reengaged again during the CT release, then left again and then last year during the pandemic / new tour started visiting again online. but looking at the comments nowadays i find it so odd most fans joined like post 2010. i joined in 02 when Waldo on Nancies.org promoted this page and it started to rival nancies and dmbml.com (/astb/tdc).

i haven't been to a show since 2007 and don't have the time to commit to dmb like i did in hs or college....but just wanted to get everyone's guess what percentage have been here for the long haul.

    I was lurking the Nancies.org boards in late '99/'00 and posting there until that place closed. Even though I didn't open my account here until January 2007.

    I’m still here. I don’t post much, but I visit this board every day. This screen name isn’t my real name. It’s an homage to someone I know and admire very much. I went by Andy Meeks and Paid4WhatIGot on nancies.org.

    I don't post much, but I've been lurking since way back on nancies and dmbml. I haven't been to a show in years, but still visit daily. The riveting updates in the New Album thread give me one more reason to live each day.

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

    I've been here for 20 years. Was at Nancies.org before that. Been going to DMB shows regularly since 2003. For the last probably 10 years I have spent virtually all my time here in nDMBc though except for the Tour and Live Release sections.

    I didn't even know it was possible to have a join date in 2001. I think even Jake has a join date in January 2002. I thought that's when it actually got started.

    I thought for a quick minute they meant the Erich type of old. Not join date. Carry on with not napping.

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

    Iíve been here since the beginning of Ants. Dmbml before that. Was also an original warehouse member in 1998. Been following the band since 1992-93 when friends in high school were passing around bootleg cassette tapes of live shows.

    Not as active as I was years ago but still love going to shows and eagerly look forward to new albums.

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

    Been lurking since after my first show in 2007, posting since joining in 08.

    My posts have definitely fallen off over the last 5ish years....I used to work the overnight shift in a treatment center so I basically had 8 hours of uninterrupted web time so I would spend pretty much the entire time on the boards.

    Side note, it does slightly depress me to see this place getting vacated more and more.....

    Still here, rarely posting but always reading posts related to tour / Alpine. The updates to Tour Central really bumped up my attention level to stats also, especially right before and right after attending a show.
