    I think that JUST_4INCHES is referring to the date that people joined Talkbass.

    Russ, you are certainly in the top 5% or so. A month older than me.

    I think they were giveing away a pretty cool bass or something because march and april of 2000 seems to be pretty popular.

    The site was going for at least a year before that though and I was on 3 versions before the current one!

    I was in that same time period. Actually, I apparently was a TalkBass April Fool's joke :D

    One of the members of the board won the Ergodyne (I think... I know it was an Ibanez), but after that Paul got in a little bit of a sticky situation with the legalities of contests online with the next contest. It can't work like a raffle, or some such nonsense, so we don't have them anymore. If you want the icky details Paul might tell you.

    There was a suggestion of another giveaway/contest, but I think there was a problem with something that was fair to all the non-US members. I can remember that the Supporting Member thing was going to give you entry to a competition for a Fender Jazz - each $20 would give you one entry - and I was anticipating winning! But then I think Paul found out it couldn't go abroad or at least it wasn't practical to do this.

    I won the Ergodyne EDC700 last year.*blush*

    Nice bass and I still have her.:) I believe there were only two or three more give-aways after that,no?

    From what I am told I was the first tber to win from the contest.LOL Wondered why I was`nt able to find the other winners in the "members directory" :oops:

    As to age!!:( I turned 40 this year so guess that makes me like a virtual Methusila on this board!lol
  15. I joined around june 2000, but I lost my password to my first s/n and so I had to do another.

    Does that make me old????:D
