Could a long time user/mod/admin tell us a bit about MF's history? when was MF started? who started it? when did Inet take it over? have the mods and admins been the same sense day one?

Hey thats a great idea, since M-F is a community that we all enjoy it will be a great thing to know the history leading up to it.

That was a nice read. Thanks KoDorSean for suggesting it. I'd give you a rep, but gotta spread it around.

Mac-Forums was started by emrys in October 2002. Many of the current mods and admins have been around since then, some are a little newer.

iNet bought Mac-Forums a few years back, sometime in 2005 I believe...time sure flies when you're having fun :)

(1) emrys started bragging about his high post count and was banned.

(2) emrys received so much rep, he ascended to a higher plane of consciousness.

(3) emrys was assassinated by Bill Gates.

(4) emrys got so busy with his full time business (running Apple) that he had to stop posting.

(5) schweb suffers from multiple personality disorder, and emrys was the fifth of his six personalities (Sandy, Chuck, Hans, William, and Beavis being the other five).

(6) I am emrys.

(7) emrys was a passenger aboard Oceanic Flight 815.

(8) emrys went to repair permissions one day and was never heard from again.

(9) emrys was sacrificed in the Smilies War.

(10) emrys escaped The Matrix.

Shouldn't (5) be seven personalities? You left out "schweb!"

Was there ever a time when M-F didn't have the vBulletin style layout? That is one of the primary reasons I like this forum because I love how vBulletin styles their forums.

Originally MacForums was using Invision. We switched to vBulletin around late 2003 or early 2004.

HAHAHAHA! That's just funny. Sometimes schweb reminds me of Clive Anderson (the guy who hosted the show Whose Line is it Anyway?) because he gets cheap shots taken at him by the members here just like the members of the show would rip on Clive. Of course, nobody means it, it's all in good humor and it comes with the territory.
