Who are the posters who have been on these forums the longest? I’ve only been here about 7 months.

I’m just curious…


I have been coming here since May 10th 2001


Iv’e been around since the old site - I have been around for a while.



WOW!! 14 years!! That’s incredible!

What changes have you noticed over that span…good, bad or different?

found this forum 2 months ago joined a little later to get some answers. im very recent but shouldnt szAdmin be the poster who has been here the longest? if he counts that is.

I started on the old forums in 2009.


Is there one or more old posters who you wish would return?

I was on old forums from about 2005 to 2008.

I was obnoxious fool like I am now!


Used to be a guy named lizardking who was pretty cool on the old forums and he’s been here a few times. I liked talking to him. Another pretty cool poster is @radmedtech, I don’t know how long he’s been a member but I remember him from a while ago. People come and go. Some of them are big presences for awhile and they disappear. I forget many people.

Jamesgirl lord malvok and mister lister been here a while

The old site had a lot of trolls towards the end and software problems. I almost stop coming here. I like this site it works a lot better,. The questions become routine when all the new people come on board.
I have never posted much. I mostly read but I can’t read all the posts.


I was on the old forum as early as 2011, but not nearly as active as I am now

Actually it was 2012, when I came to terms with my dx

I have been here off and on,not with my current user name(had several as I closed accounts due to paranoia etc and came back again) since If I recall rightly before 2000. It was definitely a number of years before I lost the schizoaffective dx in 2005. Hard to remember my previous user names but recall capricorn was the one previous to firemonkey. I used to post almost exclusively in the news section but have ventured into other areas more since the current incarnation of the forums.


Anyone remember Cannonier (sp?)

yeah and billhook, cannonier was a mod for a while and billhook liked fishing, joey1234 was really cool and pinkpanther use to say think pink lol, i liked @pob and polaris, i use to post under a different name in the poetry section mostly for a long time, think i joined in 2005 just as they changed from the even older software, i remember that it was at the change over.

@ pob is still here. I remember the others it was pretty messed up though.

Wasn’t PP driven away by unfriendly posters.

unfortunately i think she was :frowning: and i really really liked her

i wasnt perfect but i dont think i ever tried to drive anyone away, i posted a few things that people didnt like sometimes but it was all pretty harmless i think, i think i’ve grown now as a person on a better med too.

I know there were several people who really didn’t want me there although at the time I carried a sz-a diagnosis. I just didn’t make a big show of it. I like the way these current forums are more inclusive and welcoming of those who have had some experience of psychosis irrespective of whether they be dxed with sz or sz-a.
Although a long time poster it’s only since the move to the current forums that I’ve felt(bouts of paranoia aside) that I’ve really been accepted.
