  1. I would like to meet this guy. He must be a genius.
     
  2. Look for Paul, the admin, he's the genius behind the boards.

  4. Invented? I thought it was discovered.

    Paul was the first one to tame its virgin resources and devote them to the metropolis that is this site.

    Ya I was kinda wondering myself- I looked at the Supporting member listings awhiel ago and noticed that there are members that joined before Paul is registered as joining. What's the deal with that??

  9. If I remember rightly, Paul Determan had a Talkbass board going before this one. I belonged to it, and I seem to recollect he shut it down because of flame wars and abusive attitudes. I remember Jim Ferguson used to frequent it, cant remember any others.......

    it was never shut down - it got too big for the bulleltin board software that he was using, so he moved over to the ubb board and started over.

    besides, there were never flame wars around here in the beginning - shoot, for the first few months there were no mods here except for javy helping with basses. it took almost a full year for every forum to get at least one mod.

    marty it sounds to me like you are confusing this with the old lakland board. remember that fiasco? :rolleyes: :)
     
  11. I'm easily confused.....I asked for more medication, but they said I'm on maximum dosage now......

  14. Wha........??

    Right, I'm off to search the user listings.



    Right, the last ("first" by date", (here) ) page of the users starts with user #6.

    But I can't find anywhere that goes below that.


    (actually, I didn't look, but "whatever!")

    Well it is possible Paul made his "paul" account after some people had already joined, I noticed that there are many "testxxxx" accounts lying around, those probably came first.
