    I just realized I must be one of the older members here, a lot of the names I remembered from when I joined are gone. I've been on and off but always come back since Sept. 2004

    I started reading the place around the end of 2005, but only got around to joining up in 2006.

    2011-ish. I joined a year ago, but I'd been lurking around since 2011 after a friend of mine linked me this site during a discussion of film hats.

    My girlfriend introduced me to it around '11 (she still only lurks), and I joined in '12. This was the first Forum I joined and I was really hesitant as I am very uncomfortable joining things as I never really think I fit in, but have felt very welcome here.

    None of us fit in. That's the beauty of the place.

    Relative newbie (1/1/2014), as you can see. I didn't "lurk" before jumping in with both feet. But I've enjoyed encountering a number of kindred spirits here, and have learned a lot.

    Joined a couple of years back, lurked a bit but not much participation until lately. Finding quite a few areas of interest.

    I lurked for a bit, reading mostly old threads for about a week before joining in the Spring of 2014. :D

    I wonder who's been here the longest not including MK, I know Paddy came on right before me...

    I joined around spring 2007. I don't post often, but lurk practically every day.

    Yeah. You should be able to click on any profile picture and see the person's registration date.

    I'm more of a lurker/reader than a poster but, I am here.
