This one isn't that old.  I rebranded because I thought my other username was childish.  THAT one was probably in 2000 some time.  Maybe 2001.  If I could remember the password I would know for sure.

you can enter any username and get the create date

But, I was regularly reading fark from almost the beginning. A friend introduced it to me along with memepool (RIP).

I always wanted to drop the '321' but admins made it a pain in the ass to reactivate.

Dang, 2002-01-29 10:01:48 .

For the life of me though I can't remember how I discovered this site. My Slashdot account is older, I believe, maybe that was it?

It says my account is 10 years old, but I'm certain I've been here longer. I may not have posted comments before then.

I forgot.  What caused the huge spike in memberships between 2002 and 2003? The jump from 5 digit accounts to 6 was pretty drastic
 
2020-09-22 4:55:35 PM  
8 years for this account. No idea on the first.

Remember when you could post anonymously? Pepperidge farm remembers. It's also why my user name is 'moos'. Which itself is a shorter version of my old name, that was something like 'Farking_A_Non-E_Moose.'
 
2020-09-22 4:56:03 PM  
11-19-2002.  My first name is too embarrassing to mention, but that's the date.

I probably lurked for at least a few months before making an account to post.

After the "you'll get over it" debacle, I fled to reddit for years. But that turned out to be even way more awful than FARK, so I've been back here for quite a while now. I actually did get over it.

Loving every minute of it.

THERE WILL NOT BE A GODDAMN VACCINE ANYWHERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. Although you should be aware there is a nice little study on the use of large doses of Vitamin D (D-3) which has shown to be helpful in keeping those infected out of ICU.

My guess is that word got out about how effective FARK was in the days after 9/11.

By the looks of it, Fark needs a hip and modern UI change to attract younger paying members. And an app like FarkTok and SnapFark

I lurked for a little while, until I found a story worth trying out a headline for; I can't remember what it was, but my first greenlight under the old name was a story about Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter taking a ride on the submarine named for Jimmy. The headline was [OBVIOUS] Rosalynn Carter to go down on Jimmy Carter. Except I misspelled "Jimmy."  The modadmins fixed it when they greenlit it.

2003 was unlike any other year in Farks history. The headlines were absolute gold. Then Drew started greenlighting my shiat and now Fark is a much worse place because of it.

This one is at 15 years now.... I started one in 1999, but decided to change over when W won the second time and I got more invested in conversation.

I still miss the main page Boobies sometimes. Those threads always were comic gold....

Also, that was the golden age of Photoshop threads. I have a folder full of great PS entries from farkers from around 2003-2005.

Early 2000 but I didn't sign up until mid 2000.

19 years.

My metafilter account is older. I guess I had something to say there first.

I've known "of" Drew since 1996ish when he was known as Cletus. I found his marble, drank his beer, stared creepily and was bounced out of his house(church?) at xroads. Fuzzy 24 year old memory.

Yeah but it isnt a three digit one. I shoulda signed up when accounts were first introduced. But I lurked for quite a bit before I did so.

I could coitus my account in some states.

Boobies was here (and related to the SARS Classic outbreak).

Oh, and I found this account after a co-worker told me about it. I think I lurked for awhile before creating the account, though. Also, I've been a TFer since 2006.
