Back in the phpBB2 days, I think it was v2.0.6!

January 11, 2004 - Total posts 106254 • Total topics 4612 • Total members 2719

I think a few of those user accounts might be spam bots! As I think a lot of sites experienced, those mid-2000s days were great times but thereafter the prevalence of social media sites did move into that space that forums consumed which affected activity.
