How time flies...
 
I was looking at the RE3 page, clicked on the talk page, and saw what I'm pretty sure was my very first comment ever made on IMFDb ... in January 2009.

I've been contributing to this website for over 10 years now. :eek:

Jcordell 05-24-2019 02:35 PM

Same here. Looks like I became active in November 2008. I lurked for a couple months before joining. My first page was "The Stand" in March 2009. It was a steep learning curve. Found IMFDB totally by accident.

MT2008 05-24-2019 10:14 PM

I joined in 2008 (as my name implies). 11 frigginí years! Jeez, where does time go! I was a 22-year old kid, just out of college and with no idea what I wanted to do with my life at the time. Now Iím 33. Jeez, I remember when that age seemed so old...

Oh, and I cringe now at a lot of the stupid shit I said and did back then.

December 2009.

I admit, I don't contribute as much as I used to. A new job competes for your time, and then a wife, and then a kid, and soon another kid.

Our kids were in middle school and elementary school when I joined the IMFDB. Now they're both grown and moved out. I'm just five years out from retirement now. In 2008 retirement was so far out that it was more academic. Now it's so close I can practically taste it.

So you're saying you're too old for this shit? :D

When we first joined Murtaugh he was celebrating his 50th birthday. I'm 51 and I just went back to detectives a few days ago. I'm too old for patrol that's for sure. :D

I was in college when I started this way back

S&Wshooter 06-05-2019 12:24 AM

Started in early HS, now I have my Associate's and Bachelor's

I joined in May(ish) 2010 so not far from that magic decade mark myself. Just in my twenties, flat broke, and no steel in my ownership whatever. Fortunately some of that has changed since, yet I am still here.. More-or-less. But indeed, has it been that long? Bah.

Greg-Z 10-24-2019 07:36 PM

It's been eight years since I came here (the anniversary was the day before yesterday, I forgot). I hope I did something worthy... and plan to continue. ;)

I've always wanted us to do a podcast or just chat online

I should have known that! I was 17 the summer that movie came out and saw it in the theater. Bad old man, bad.

You haven't done the Truffle Shuffle yet.

S&Wshooter 11-07-2019 01:12 AM

Because everyone is lazy

Rockwolf66 11-07-2019 03:03 AM

I joined December 24th 2008.

It's been an interesting decade here.

As far as a Discord goes....Do we make one?

I have a Discord but it's for gaming and such and is NSFW.

S&Wshooter 11-07-2019 11:59 PM

I also have a discord, it's really easy

MoviePropMaster2008 11-11-2019 07:48 PM

I see a lot of old timers here! :D How you guys doing? I always liked the O.G. crowd. (well some of the ones I butted heads with aren't even here any more LOL)

Excalibur 11-12-2019 03:05 AM

Nice to see you. And yeah, we definitely need to do discord
