Just out of interest? How many original posters are still here from the old Rivals.net site ? I’ve been posting since the 2000-01 season. Still love it as much !

If you go even further back there was a forum on the Electronic Fishcake when it was grimsby.org (pre-rivals). Only a handful of people ever posted on there but there were a few!

grimsby.org and electronicfishcake.com incidentally still exist but point to random crap now

Joined in 2001 whilst working in Paris (well Disneyland not real Paris). Lurked for a long time before that.

We are very lucky to have such a busy forum.

Aye, I remember the pre-Rivals days. There was a point when you could have multiple usernames at the same time. It was positively anarchic at times. There was a spate of invading other clubs boards at one point. People would pile on to say, Palace's board and spam it with nonsense threads.

The old EF also had a big part to play in getting people interested in the idea of a Trust together in those pre-FB and Twitter days.

Much of that rebooting feel has gone. There's more control of content. Some posters have passed on to a better messaging board. The only thing that hasn't changed is Swin.

What I liked the most was that you could post on other club sites without having to register for each individual club boards.

Who else here was on Billo's e-mail list back in the 1990s? (Raises hand).

Not many people had t'internet in those days. I remember being very excited when we upgraded our modem to a 56kb one.

Took about 3 minutes to download 1 megabyte.
