How old is your phpBB board?

Post by JupiterGPL » Mon Sep 17, 2018 4:07 am

After upgrading to the most recent version of phpBB today. I thought to myself... I have been using this software for my college hockey website for 15+ years now. It has me wondering... Besides this site, who has the oldest continuously running phpBB messages board?

How old is your phpBB message board?

What version of phpBB was your first board? (I believe mine was 2.0.4 when my board started in April 2003)

Does anyone have a board that started on v1?

Anyway... I thought it would be a fun discussion.

(Founded in 2009)
First with a forum provider. Then in 2010 an own phpbb forum.
Unfortunately the icons in the navbar disappeared during the local installation of the nostalgia board. Inserting them again in this style is quite complicated.
I don't know anymore which was my first phpBB version. :oops: (In the log of the admin area you should see which phpbb version has been installed. Unfortunately this is on a broken computer. I never deleted the whole administration log. :D )
The changes from the past to the present are blatant :mrgreen:
and if I would have read further down I would have seen a similar topic. Sorry about that.
And I didn't finish reading and answering. :oops: :lol: :lol:

Little over three years here. And not many members. :(

:lol:

I think it's safe to say social networking surpassed computer help boards. But I offer a little of everything.

I'm afraid that's true. Since there is hardly anything new in the music keyboard sector, with the key forums, like mine anyway. Besides, there are now the groups on Facebook. My forum is actually still something like a live archive.
In former times many members did not log out at all and were around the clock in the forums on the move. They didn't seem to sleep at all anymore. :lol:

But the number of members is not decisive.
In forums with 2000 members hardly anything runs and in forums with 50 members there is a lot of activity.

The first forums I used are long gone. I joined a gaming clan back in March 18, 2003 that used phpBB 2. I was so active on it that they eventually gave me admin.

my poetry site was my first one.
it has not been up constantly but I put it back up just recently.

I originally started it in 2003 but lost the hosting, etc.
I managed to get most of it back and online again in 2004

http://poetry.cyberosis.net/

you can see where lumpy burgertushie came from there.

I have been using phpBB for several generations. The oldest forum is now 15 years old.
