    I was an avid poster of the Survivor Sucks ezboard. Survivor fan since Day 1. Later, duing AI2, I kept seeing references to FORT over there, and finally decided to check it out. Only sorry that I didn't find it sooner...cuz those boards did SUCK when it came to AI.

    Btw, I know most of you have no idea who I am, since I don't post much...But I know YOU... since I read a lot of threads in a lot of forums. (No, not only the Clay thread--despite the avatar!) Maybe I'm finally coming out of my shell over here.

    I came with John. I'm the third member John, fluff, cali

    A lot of the mods joined the first day, so I was probably third by seconds, but it's still pretty cool.

    Well, I was watching AI2, and there was this geeky kid with big ears and weird hair, doing a hip-thrust to a disco tune, and I just had to find out who he was...

    Oh wait, that wasn't me. That was my nightmare last night

    I guess I'm a charter member.

    Very similar to Cali and Wolf....

    Met a lot of fine folks at another message board when searching for Combat Missions fans since the only people I knew that watched it were ones I forced to do so. Was the first time I'd ever posted on a message board.

    Packed my bags and moved with John when he started the site. Officially member #5, but as Cali said, there were about 12 of us that all registed on that wonderful day, 9/13/02.

    Yep. The site officially opened for business on 9/16/02. For anyone keeping track.

    John's having Claydreams again. BTW my birthday is 9/13. How ironic. hehe
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    official member #6 here, met the charter bunch when we were discussing Combat Missions on another board in a land far, far, away.

    I also found this place during obsessive American Idol searches and saw Lobeck’s recaps and then John’s interviews (along with the most fantastic Survivor interview ever – the Jeff Probst interview). I lurked for a long time, mainly because I felt that the most I could contribute was “ditto”. I finally joined just so I could post a “thanks” to Lobeck, John etc. for entertaining me. I didn’t plan to post much, but slowly became addicted. Now it’s hopeless.

    Oh, and I was addicted to lurking and reading all the witty posts by FORT members. I kept comin' back for the brains in the boards; very different than so many other boards.

    Just for the opportunity to say "member" in a public forum, I'd like to point out that I am member #8.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    heh heh, he said "member"

    Okay, had to throw in the Beavis and Butthead reference, (even though I never watched the show, yet so many have quoted this type of response back to me)
