My first bulletin board experiences were pre-Web. Things were considerably different back then, so I suppose they don't really count for purposes here.

I don't remember what my first Web-based BBS experience was, but it was powered by WWWBoard.
We should talk less, and say more.

First forum i joined was started by a friend back in 2005, i just remember the last word was pride.com but don't remember the rest of it. It became very popular quite quickly due to a big friend circle but than he stopped the forum year later due to his personal problems.

the first forum I can remember joining was my local bus service forum for Uni-Link in Southampton, maintained by one of their bus drivers.

It was hosted on a phpBB2 free forum hosting service, which is how I found out about phpBB really. Sadly after about a year, the driver closed the forum, so I decided to create my own forum instead, and then a few years later was onto advanced hosting with phpBB3 :D

WinMXCommunity.com back in October 2003. Sadly it ceased operation in around 2004/2005. Then I became interested in creating my own forum, so I joined a few places like Proboards before realising nothing could go past phpBB2. So I set up a phpBB2 forum in January 2004 and that was where it really all started. :)

The first forum I joined was a Counterstrike forum under phpBB2 in the late 90s. I was invited by an acquaintance who I met playing the PC game Tiberian Sun online. I became an administrator at that forum, and that started my experience both with staffing at a message board, and using phpBB in particular. It would not be until 2004 that I started my own forum... under phpBB2. I do not use that software now, but I still like it very much.

Does it have to be a "forum"? Does "the net" count? It was "the net" before the great renaming when it became "usenet".
