The Old Board?

Post by Cowboy Gun Fan » Mon Mar 23, 2020 9:20 am

Just curious on how many of us here are from the old board? I know Dave was there before I was, then Gene joined. I know we have or did have some others transfer over, but I lost track on who. What a difference from those old days. There were times that no one would post for days. I would say that it came real close to diminishing.

I was on the 'old' board.

I lost interest due to it being so slow and about a year later discovered the new forum.

I was on the old board, too, until it basically died. Then, I joined Rimfire Central. As soon as I read a post there (by Henry88, I believe) that Dave and Gene had created this forum, I signed up that day; one day after it went live. Since then, I've never been back to Rimfire Central.

Anyone else miss Henry88?

I was on the old one also.
Used to pop in from time to time but hardly ever much happening.
Not sure how I found out the this one, but
somehow slipped in at the last few minutes of the first day.
This one too was slow in the beginning, but it's picking up now.

Yeah, I was part of that old "bored" group when it fizzled away. Posts were more than scarce. Remember there was that faint rabbit trail to follow to find the new HRF. Recall also that there were chats about Henry forum on RFC, part of the hunt. Still hard to believe it was four years ago....so quickly gone! :*)

Almost all of the first 100 members were from the old board and were given the status of founding member if I remember right. I think their name is a different color if you were not given another status like admin.

He hasn't been here since Oct 19, 2019. I sent him an email, but got no reply. I hope he's OK, too. I miss his morning music posts and comments.
