How many BGG users are still active on a daily basis since it's first day back in January 2000 ?

I've been here since day one and I'd say nearly everyone I knew from back then is still active in the hobby. Gaming comms didn't start on that day ... gamers were active on rec.games.board before then.

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals, and you know it.

My registration date is June of 2001, but I know I surfed the site for a while before registering.

I would imagine only the admins were around on day one, as it's kind of hard to go to a website you don't know exists.

Yeah, I started lurking since day one, but didn't register until a couple years later, I don't think.

There are eight people with the Day One microbadge. I forget how you link microbadges, but if you go here and click the bottom microbadge on the list

And out of those eight people with the microbadge only one of them has a registration date from 2001. I don't think that badge is worth the pixels it's written on.

Registration dates are wrong. At one point - I think in 2003 - the system messed it up and all users had either a 2001 or a 2003 date. So pre-2003 dates are wrong.

You could look it up by usernumber, maybe? Check these links:

Not sure if that's a good method, but who knows.
