I've been keeping up with changes almost 7 years as well now. When I joined there were the forums, green but really very familiar despite switching many around subject wise. Ask hadn't yet arrived so all questions went in the forums, which is how I found it. There was also the archive of facts where we could all post our favourite trivia. I only thought of one, and when I returned a year later to add some more the archive wouldn't take new posts so I only have the one there.
There was also a guest book, unmoderated, and you can imagine the stuff people posted there. That went on till 2002 and though I read most of it I appear not to have added an entry, probably because it wouldn't work.
But compared to 2000 it's had a continuity as well. When I arrived some of my questions were answered by Sue, gtho4 and Linda1 (hello Linda, can you hear me?), and there are still a few of the people around from then knocking around. And the other difference were the number of regulars. I was member 1088 in the forums and now there are over 10 times that number and over 1,000,000 registered on the other side. I said to a few people if Terry wants a Funtrivia historian I'd be up for it, I remember names and faces and any little changes that happen as that is my nature. It's as real to me as any community whether it's in a building or on a screen.
