This is just sort of a silly thread but what the hell. How old do you have to be to be considered old school?

I don't think post count should have anything to do with it. I signed on in Nov 01 and didn't post until 2002. And I'm not the only one who's put 1000 posts up in one month.....

if you remember spikey, kela, and john123...that's pretty old school

if you remember when ensign paris was newtonman, that's old school

if you remember when i had way more posts than anybody else and changed my name to networkman...so eyelikeart could take the lead in posts, then you are old school

if you remember blakespot frequently posting here, then you are old school

if you remember the parrot incident, then you are probably still laughing about it:D

If you remember the 10 or so graphicly-explicit posts that inspired both the sensors and banned a few users.....

If you remember when the G5 issue had only been discussed 3 or so times........

If you remember when Rumors were pet theories and leaks were just research...

If you remember when there were only 5 or 6 forums........ :eek:

well jefhatfield is old skool for sure...

the obsolete members he mentioned I'd also consider old skool...

I'm seeing that I'm one of the older registered members here too...but I don't think I'd consider myself old skool...I don't contribute enough.. ;)

i think your first post may have been before mine...i just used to read posts here, for nine months thinking macrumors was only for experts and not basic users like me...plus i was a pc techie so i didn't want to open my mouth at all:D

when i did, i must have ended up on a lot of people's ignore lists...later, i became more like spikey and alphatech with some bold, and sometimes stupid attacks and idiot manuevers (like my misguided attack on buffsldr)

i think bttm is the most diplomatic person i have ever seen on macrumors

Don't be so hard on yourself jef, you never seemed like a major flamer to me. Of course Alpha never seemed too bad to me either, I guess it's because neither one of you ever flamed me.

I match all of these! I am January 4th 2001!!! I remeber when evey news article was approved by blakespot:) Eye is only 3 days older then me. I guess I am one the few remaining 'true' old skool people:) Just look at my sig one of the four old musketeers;)

I loved the sphere rumors and the dodecahedron:eek:
Hey the sphere was half right just look at the new iMac!

Post-888 that is one cool number, so many 8s.

To be totally on topic, I would say you would have to have joined a lot before me to be old school

I remember all of the above events posted (except for spkiey, kela and john123) but that is because they are not THAT old.

I think I joined April 2002 so I'm not even on the list...however, I think that old skool seems more to refer to the most known people, generally with higher posts, than the date joined...because there are plenty of people who registered ages ago but just lurk and all...

jefhatfield

now that there are so many new posters every day, i guess anyone with at least thirty posts and 12 months since join date are old skool members

Yes, but there is a core group of you that's more than just been around for a year. I've not even been here that long and I've seen tons of changes.

I registered in January and lurked until summer...

I've only been posting since June...would I be considered "old-skool?" ;)

Nah...probably not... :D

I consider anyone who registered pre-mid-2001 to be old skool. Mainly because there's so few of them around. I remember all the incidents/previous members mentioned above, but that's not exactly ancient history. The only people i really think of as 'old' members would be eye and jef. Everyone else just seems to have not posted enough to gain any recognition, or to have joined too recently.

Speaking of old timers though, where's blakespot gone?

I voted for late 2001, which puts an old school label on me as well :p , although I do no see myself as a truly old school member (I don't post that much, so people generally do not recognice me, I think).

But I do remember most of the members mentioned above, and I do remember when eye was the first to break the 700 post-mark, and nobody belived it was possible... :p

If only days like those still existed

Then again.... I have broken that mark too... maybe I should drop to 1 message per day instead of 2

Waxing nostalgic over the old days is not necessarily a good thing. Rampant flame wars and such didn't really make the forums all that fun - even though there was plenty of other things going on.

For me the best times at MR were in 2002, April - July or so.

I would consider jefhatfield & the original founders as the base group, those of the 2000 - 2001 class "Charter Members" those the rest of us look up to & respect! :)
