    Who was there back in the day? I spent many, many hours chatting there, 1999-2001ish.

    I was, as MikeD. Partsy and VB were around. Grizza still posts here as Thylacine if I point something out to him.

    Who else? Under what name?

    Chat? You mean the bulletin board or did they have a live chat?

    I used to post there around the same time (1999-2001ish) under this same username. Might have posted a bit as an old handle, noyoki.

    Believe or not, I hated chat and avoided online culture period.

    As an old school computer admin, that stuff really slowed down your cpu cycles.

    Never chatted, but I hung around on the forums usually once a day to check up on anything interesting. I didn't visit mtbr for around 3 or so years, only to visit one day and find something like 40+ forums. Umm, no thank you.

    I had two logins, James@Giant, and a secret one so I could argue with people.
    Ah the good old days...

    Chat touring...with Paul Bouchard (or something).

    Split Saddle & 4-Banger. User 12. Konagirl. Lonewolf(e?) who I think may post here. Vert from North Carolina. Dude from Moab--nurse by trade...Poison Rider, maybe, but I think PR was actually another friend of his from Utah. Dirt Carver from Tahoe. Zman from NorCal (not the same guy as Zonic Man, though) And the incomparable Mrs. Treat, some idiot 12 year old boy who would either stir **** and/or shut the place down with cut/paste for hours.

    Never posted much on the forums, myself. Just stuck with the instant gratification of java chat.

    User12 set up aukcycles.com which had a faux-mtbr chatroom for those of us who held over after mtbr killed the fun, but it doesn't seem to be working. Last I visited there was in like 2003.

    I learned about Ridemonkey when Nizmeister dropped into the mtbr chatroom.

    I was llkoolkeg there as here but all my old posts seem to have been deleted or archived or something. I came here after finally getting sick of all the daily e-arguments with snotty little turdburglars. Once I came here, I probably only posted there a couple more times ever.

    So you guys posted the forums, but didn't chat?

    It took Ridemonkey to get me to see the value of forums beyond asking a tech question or three. I much preferred the real-time chat. But this was the first VBulletin board I ever saw, and it was a LOT more slick than the MTBR ones...and I got used to it.

    MW was a funny bastard. the banning and ensuing fallout/epic war between RM and Hcor was very entertaining.

    i still have a hoodie from a13x's ill-fated clothing company, aberrant concepts. i wear it all the time.

    Great minds think alike. I must've spent about 15 minutes trying to find the original thread, but it was either deleted, archived in some lockbox server, or my interweb search skillz sucked.
