By chance I looked at my profile this evening and realized I having been on this version of TMP for 20 years (actually anniversary was June 14th). I was on earlier versions as can be seen my looking at a few game reviews I wrote way back when. IIRC I started reading TMP when Bill was still affiliated with a dental college.

What a long strange trip it's been.

Bill, congratulations for keeping this up for so long, especially given some of the trails and tribulations you've been through.

And my post was hit by the TMP bug!!! Well, it took 20 years for it to happen.

20 years for me next December.

Wow, I just looked at my profile: first visit was in 2001.
And I still have not played in enough games!

Hey Bill, are we coming up on an awesome anniversary of TMP's birthday?

I have my 20 years in May 2023. I am hoping that Bill has developed a better retirement system for us by then.

20 years on June 9. Time flies like an arrow but fruit flies like bananas.

Please stand face first in the corner and think what a bad citizen you've been!

Crumbs, at 12 years I feel like complete newbie!

10 Feb 2001 is when I first joined. So I guess that is 21 years for me. Bill should dream up some sort of ICON for us old fellers.

16 years on this account. 20 years in January 2023 for the first account that I forgot the password.

21 yrs here… and a couple before this iteration. Maybe 1998? Grandiosity anyone? Ed's Hobby Hovel?

cloudcaptain22 Jun 2022 8:05 p.m. PST

Working on 21 years myself. Glad there are still some old-school familiar faces around. Gosh that's been almost half my life.

I have read TMP for years, but only joined a year ago. Retirement.

You made me look. Exactly 19 years, today.

I will be 20year member in November. Time flies.

15 years for me with the first 12 having less than 100 posts. Lots of time on my hands now that I'm retired.

It's classified … old fart

10 years only, but I would agree, how so often, "What a Long Strange Trip it's Been".

"But at Least I'm Enjoying the Ride"!
