I suspect that Eric or Carol might know the answer as they are listed as #3 and #5 starting 15 years ago.

Number 1 was created as an administrator account. Eric and I started this board, yes.

This then begs the question, "who is #2?"

I remember the day Eric and Carol turned the "new" board on... They enabled new registrations at Noon Eastern...

I registered at 12:15pm and wound with member #85... It was like a feeding frenzy, <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

I also read the Prodigy board.

Well i remember when we were members together at the old travel talk...i remember when Eric and carol bought it and i rejoined their new travel talk. I don't say a lot....but i have been here since the beginning as well. I am not seeing the numbers you are talking about but i know my join date is August 15...so if it went public AUGUST 14 i was in at the beginning.

Carol,
I think I was 15 originally. Can you verify?
It's so very important.

Sorry, no, we don't have amy records, other than what appears here. But as I said, there were I think about 300 people who registered within the first DAY, so anything below about 300 was in the first day, for sure..

Wow, no wonder I read this board so much to gather my valuable information. You "old" members (most of who are younger than I am) have so much to share. My joining date was 1/8/2008 and I was # 20,124!!! I can say that without this board I probably would have only made one trip to SXM because I sure would not have known all the treasures on the Island to explore, visit and fine resturants. Still visiting yearly and have next years already booked. Thanks to all the low number members before me that added to my vacations.

Not so sure Carol about that 300 number set the first day. I lingered on the old Travel Talk Board a little longer before I migrated here and became member 243 on 08/23/00 03:43 PM. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

i do wonder where some "old" members have gone to. Change is inevitable i guess.
