Who was the first member of MR, and what was the first thread ever started by a member? It may be a simple question to some of you, but I haven't been around here that long to know. Also, my question I have been DYING to know the answer to:


How do you become a MR God, or just a Mod for that fact?

The first member in the list is blakespot, even though he is member #9. arn is member #1, but he registered well after blakespot...but it's arn's site, he can do what he wants. ;) :D

Here is the first thread in the vBulletin system we're using today.

You get to be a mod or god by being a valuable member of the community and eventually being asked by the site owners/other mods. Asking how to become a mod immediately removes your name from consideration, as it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what is asked of the mods.

But I thought being a mod was all about the fame, money, and girls. :confused:

No, it's about spammers, reposts, and thread merges.

Which, if you think REALLY creatively, is the same thing as fame, money, and girls.












Ok, maybe not, but still, I could make connections if I HAD to. :D
