    That image will be burned into my brain until the end of time. If someone's avatar had to become the basis of legend I'm glad it was relix and not Penski

    Me too! March 12th. In fact I think I'm the oldest active member who isn't staff. Shame I can't write for toffee and don't live (or want to) in London, otherwise my member id automatically qualifies me haha :thumb:
    Trubador. Funny story, I hosted the very first website about that, because the number of hits were killing the forum. Then a month or two later, he ripped me off to the tune of £200. True story.

    We oughtta start the ten-year club :clap:

    Cor that Trubador name takes me back!

    I wouldn't let not writing for toffee stop you. I can't and I've written for Custom PC mag in the past hehe. :D

    Maybe a kind forum admin can take a look at the db and see who is still active in the first 100 users id's. Can't be many.

    There's two or three single-digit members I think, and all staff. I think its possible to count on one hand the double-digit members :D

    Not sure if it is an accurate representation of the user ID, but if you go onto someones profile page and then contact details, the link for "this page" shows a user ID.

    Zoon - yours shows up as 11 and Gordy yours is 74

    Mine on the other hand is 13032, and I've been on here since 2004

    Edit: just tried changing the url - seems to be right enough. Koolvin is number 2 :)

    First came across bit-tech because of WMD I think... then joined some time afterwards.

    Been too busy to spend much time here recently, but I try to keep up with the news.

    I'm laughing remembering CK.

    Hah, nice discovery. Member "petemcrae, #4 has the tagline "The first modder here". I wonder if he was? Jamie is #5 :)

    VBB just starts at 1 with the first account and increments from there so it is accurate. I'm still annoyed I was so close to getting the coveted 69 :D

    It's amazing to think how far this site has come in ten years. From something very small based around Koolvin's work to what it is today.

    It makes me uneasy to see a user like Gordy who has 2500 posts since 2001 when I have 5200 since 2006 :hehe:

    Although my posts from the CPC forum, of which there were many, were added here as well after the move. And I'm on here almost every day, usually posting in a few threads per visit.

    Some people just have little to say. A ton of my posts came from the old "Guess the Car" thread. Ruled that thread until I had to go do secret stuffz.

    Yeah, but I don't post too often here these days. Or on forums in general so I've slowed my rate down massively. I've been an active member of loads of different forums too, which helped slow me down on bit :D

    .. when you remember waiting for Orac3 part 2 to come out!! :)

    Seriously I can't believe how long I've been on BT. Although I did take a break for a couple of years before coming back and being more involved than before. Unfortunately I seem to have missed the whole 'relix' phase, although I remember CK and a couple of the others mentioned,

    EDIT: Meh.. turns out I've only been on the forums since '06. I could have sworn it was longer :/

    The recent tattoo thread, and this one toghether reminded me of 'K' (or at least I think that was his username). Is he still active here?

    edit
