If so, you dn't have to give a name, but you should say how long you were a member of it, and an estimate of how many posts you have, exact number if you still know.

Web Based?
SpaceBattles, PBReview, Sarna.net's Battletech forums, Fanpro's Battletech forums, Taladren's Starfleet Command forums, Morrowind Chronicals, PBNation, and probly a few others...

None web based? As in, REAL BBSs (the kind you dialed up into... before the web became big, back when a 9600 bps modem was teh very best you could get)?

More then I can remember.

I've been on/am on five web-based boards, specifically SB, 3DGladiators, Subtalk (railfan site) and DSLReports. I've probably used around fifty dialup BBSes back in the olde daze, have/am subscribed to four mailing lists, and I've inhabited upwards of thirty Usenet newsgroups at various points. As I mostly lurk rather than post, my lifetime post count in all media is probably not much higher than around 7,000 messages even though I've been online for over a decade.
It's not my place in life to make people happy. Don't talk to me unless you're prepared to watch me slaughter cows you hold sacred. Don't talk to me unless you're prepared to have your basic assumptions challenged. If you want bunnies in light, talk to someone else.

Never been on a BBS before; however I answered a @#$# lot of consumer e-mails for a software company before I became a regional sales rep. People will write the strangest things when there software rebates or free game has not arrived yet. :lol:

Shoutweb, B5Tech, SB. That's about it.
