I was wondering who is the member who has been a member for the longest.
i would reckon to say catfish comando since its his site lol.
Other than him. lol
Great Question, TY
To add to it I'd like to know the 10 longest that are active plz?
I'm courious about that myself. When I joined, there were fewer than 200 members, and this wasn't the largest catfishing site on the web.
Jerry, you invited me back then. (Yep, it was his fault, so blame him)
SciFi, Rat & Lakeman were the only Moderators back then.
Hmmm, perhaps Beatcat and Badkarma were here then too. I can picture the face of one more that still is here, but can't remember his name.
Back then, I read every post every day. Only took a half hour or so even answering most posts. I remember the first time I saw that in one day, the new posts were over 100. Couldn't believe it.
Jerry, you were at the first Gathering down by you at Lake Dardenelle. Give us some more names.
I know Slimey and Rat are a couple of the greats that where around when I became a member.
You should change the subject of this post to "Who has been a member for the longest?"
People might get the wrong idea. LOL
Surely, Paul must have the most longevity.
You, Cornhusker, and I all came in at the same time along with Sci-Fi. That was back in when Carp Net was going down. I know on the old (last Board) board before this last update it showed my time started Feb 2002. We were here way before that...Feb 2002 was when this site got the name changed to BOC if I remember correctly. Paul will have to clearify that.
As you stated it didn't take any time at all to check messages for the day and it was all catfishing. Everything was more personal and one on one.
When I joined in either 2001 or 2002 and the oldest members I remeber are Paul, Slimey, JBP, SCI FI, Cornhusker, Rat, DH, Jtrew and Im sure a bunch that Im forgetting
I think it was JW, he told me he grew up on the BOC.
Does anyone remember Paul with a shoulder strap and 2 pistols LOL
I joined when there was just a few members. Then they swaped servers and lost them. Took a while to get back. Jerry T got me back on then.
Pete, I remember that profile of Paul very well. JPB's profile was with his long beard and looked mean but he was just a fantastic fellow. The BOC has sure changed a lot since then.
Yeah I remember when JPB first joined and showed that Picture of himself. Most of us were a bit scared to talk to him with a pic like that. Looked like he could go postal at any second. LOL Then I met him in person at the first Gathering and found out he was the exact oppisite of the picture. I sure miss him. He had one of the biggest hearts I have ever known. Rest in Peace Brother, we will never forget ya.
JW had to be here the longest, I mean just the other day he was telling me how he along w/ Al Gore invented the internet . If I recall correctly, Good Ole JW said he 1st had to creatw a website that showed his true fishing side 1st & that of coarse was , then he started on the BOC.
Member sense May 2002
I think I joined in March 2002 and attended the first gathering at Lake Dardnell. That is when I first met Jtrew.Badkarma,Jesse,Kutter,Jpb, and I'm sure I am forgetting somebody else...
I been around awhile! Time flys when your having fun!
I didn't come around in the old forum until July 2004.
I remember always reading Sci-Fi's posts...and KNOWING that this guy had it goin' on. He was extremely knowlegable when it came to catfishing and life in general....and I would have loved to have met the man.
I miss JPB's explosive posts in the HI area...and Firestarter on the old forum. He too was a very savvy and intelligent man.
Cornhusker is another one whose posts that I always enjoyed reading....but don't see him around much anymore.
That's a good question...Who besides Paul...is the member who's been around the longest?
Of the currently active members, I would say it's Bearcat.
