Question Have you been here long?

G'day,

This week I'm writing a paper on "online communities"

I'm making the case that membership on DIMS is not fleeting... that people stick around this place for a LONG TIME....

Question -- How long have you been lurking or participating in the EROTIC WEIGHT GAIN board (even before it changed it's name/structure, even if YOU changed your username/ID)?

I've been here (mostly lurking around) since August 2007

Thanks,
-LYSHY-

I've been hear since it began, for whatever definition of began.
- I started reading and posting on this sub-board when it was created, I forget exactly when that was, maybe a couple of years ago?.
- I have been active on the weight board since Dimensions rolled out new web board software (2006 I think?) ETA: 2005, based on 'joined date'
- I participated in the old Dimensions weight board from its beginning. I don't remember quite when that was, but I'm guessing around 1997?
- I participated in the weight board at the BBWQT site, before its boards and chat rooms were saved by Dimensions (band width charges were killing the lady who started them). I did first participate on it under a different user name than my main one.
- I participated in 'the' web board, I think from its beginning but I'm not positive on that anymore. Certainly I was around the BBWQT site from the first half of 1996, but I forget exactly when the web board was added.
- Some of the people around here I remember from way back then, so I know I'm not the only one!

Default How Long?

I was a lurker for years before I posted. And that was a good while ago and on the old board too. I was at least a nightly visitor when Kelligirl and Atomic Vomit were active here. And Wuzupgirl. It's probably at least ten years .

I first discovered this site when it seemed to be mostly a collection of weight gain fiction, perhaps 1997 or so. A few years later, the format changed, and I began to explore the remainder of the site. The discussions began to draw my interest and pique my curiosity, and in 2008 I officially joined and started getting involved in the discussions.

Most of the people who contribute to the discussions add humorous anecdotes, wise counsel, and emotional intimacy. There are a few who are rather abrasive and antagonistic, and there are definitely those who are close friends and have been so for years. Overall, I've found the general idea is to move in a socially positive direction for the benefit of all, even if there are differences of opinion. I enjoy what Dimensions has to offer, warts and all, and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon.

I've been here since the day Conrad and Al Gore got together to invent the internet.

Did I ever tell you about how the internet is just an FA conspiracy?

I've been here since day one. Back in the day when AOL was paid by the hour and a single photo took a minute or more on a 28.8K modem.

I come and go--I alternate between lurking and participating depending on my current situation.

Been around Dimensions since 2002-03 although I was too young to go in chatrooms or post on forums back then. Didn't turn 18 until June of 04 then I was a chatroom hellraiser until I got banned for life in December 07. Been around the forums ever since.....and loving every minute of this weight gain board :-)

I've been coming to Dimensions since January of '01, started posting a month or two after that. I don't pay much attention to which of the sub-forums I'm on, tho...I view most of the forum by clicking on "New Posts."

I just started coming here on my own a few months back. My exwife used to come here when we were married in the 90s when it was just a long thread line style board. not sure if that counts for your needs though

I joined DIMS chat first in December 2003. (The month and year I turned 40; who could forget that? lol) I didn't start posting on the forums until much later, but I don't remember exactly when.

Made a very quiet debut here around '98, and got more active until 2002, when I "left" for several years. Been back since around 2006.

I came here initially donating stories. They were from the old Pound Perfect Paradise site in AOL Hometown for which I was webmaster. It was circa 1997 and Dimensions had several discussion forums in a different format. I became one of the two original moderators (AM was the other) when the VB style forums were established in 2005 and then Library Curator the next year.

I had been viewing Dimensions since 1997. I loved the art work on the site. When I finally accepted my body, I joined Dimensions. If Dimensions had been around 20 years ago, my life may have changed.

Oh my...I've been here quite a while.

My workplace first got text only Internet WAY back in 1994, graphic access came about a year later. I stumbled on this site while looking around for WG stories and haven't left.

So, we're talking 1995, maybe late 1994. I used to lurk a lot and post under different names. I've been a steady poster since 1999-2000 or thereabouts.

Gawd... I was here when it was still a new part of pencomputing (before pencomputing had its own domain). 1995-ish? Something like that. It's still the best BBW/FA site on the internet, imho (fantasy feeder is nice, though).
