    Good to see all the lurkers starting to register here. Welcome aboard to all of 'em.

    For those who have been here for a while, how long did you lurk before you registered?

    Took me a week to register, don't exactly remember my first post, though

    Ahhh yes, I remember that day well. It was a beautiful Autumn's morning, the sun was shining and the birds were chirping... lol!

    Seriously, at the time I had no idea these message boards existed. I was checking the vhnd for info (the same info we are waiting for now!) and that was the time when there was first news of Ed's possible cancer problem (May 2000). Grant had a link to a thread over here where you could say your bit about it (pass on your best wishes etc). Anyway, I came over here and registered as "Tim Davis" which is my real name (I didn't even know you were meant to make up a unique username!) and posted my best wishes to Ed and his family. I don't think it was until October that I made my next post, and I then changed my username to Romeo Delight.

    I was a regular non-member visitor over at the dlrarmy before I registered but I joined straight away over here.

    I started lurking way back at the begining, but didn't register for quite a while. I'd used the register of VH links before the message board went up, which I found out about from VHND. I damn near registered when Gary left, but just sat back and watched. Early last year the Links had some very ummm... lively Sammy vs Dave vs Gary debates, and they sort of sucked me in. 1600-some posts later, here I am. I've made some good friends, and had some great discussions.

    Register, you lurkers, and let the fun begin!

    Good question man. I'm in the same boat as MikeL. Read awhile, then said what hell go for it. Kind of like the Moffia, one you're in, you're in. When you're out, you sleep with the fishes. Out.

    I wholeheartedly second this.

    The first day I saw the links I registered.

    May 28, 2000... A day that will go down in infamy.

    It just looked like so much fun to talk VH with every kind of fan. Dave, Sammy, and Gary were all represented (and still are ). What a melting pot.

    Or how about the Patti Smythe era?

    The way things are going, there may not be any room for any Dave or Sammy material on my box set.

    Right away.

    I found out about it at VHND when they were putting together Eddie's Birthday thread last year.

    I was a regular lurker for about a month and a half.

    I had bumped into the site shortly after it (the forum that is) went up but never really got into it.

    Heh, I can remember back in April trying really hard to make it so that none of my posts incited any response from another member

    Took me a day, because the first day I was just busy testing stuff with the stock admin name they give you.

    Seriously, it took a while to get this place going, for a while, it was just me and Greg (who I've haven't seen in a while) talking to each other. Luckily all that changed especially when Gary left and then Ed's b-day thread.
