how long have you been using forums for?

As the title says
It doesn't matter which one or where it was, but how long have you been using forums for?

Me, probably 3 or so years now

Not IRC but Proboards.com

They launched in 1999 and the forum wasn't really in a forum format but got there over time. I later ended up as global moderator on there support forum in 2003. lol

I found the earliest archive of the message board. http://web.archive.org/web/200006161...user=proboards

I did know of IRC but never used it.

I was 19 in that year. I've grown up using computers since I was 5 and work at a computer company for my career job.

Started to hang out on forums and never stopped. lol

IRC has certainly made a comeback, but it's never gone away - programmers, linux users and gamers have certainly kept it alive.

I first started using forums back in 2003 - mainly things such as Lord of the Rings forums - I joined my first technical community in 2005 which I still visit every now and then.

At 1999, I don't think we have been introduced to the amazing world of Internet yet. We're still busy being taught with the Paint application and saving it on our diskettes

I've been around the web, social media sites to be exact, for a while now but I've been joining forums just about 3 years.
