        I’m curious to know how the forums looked when they first came on line… What were the first topics? Who were the first members? How did our ‘cyber family’ get started? Who was the first member? How did everyone here find the Windstone forum? ๐Ÿ˜•

          The first member was petevg but they never posted so that kind of doesn’t count. The first real posting member was Vantid. And then Snap, Chessapeaka and Skigod. So I guess you could say Ski was the first non Windstone staff member. Most people started joining in July of 2006.

          I could be wrong but I think this was the first post


            Ebay led me here early last year when I decided to start collecting but waited a little while to join. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Male day๐ŸคžDream on.


              I googled Windstone because there was a piece I was looking for, Google brought me to the flea market section on the forum. I can’t remember which piece I was looking for, but I’m sure I have it now thanks to the forum ๐Ÿ˜€

                Snap led me here in the last half of 2006.
                I Lurked as a Non-Member for what I think was next to forever before I joined.
                & then kept Lurking as a Member for next to forever before my First post.
                Note I have rarely ever posted, I don’t have a Huge Post Count at all compared to my Time here.


                  I found this place in the spring of 2007 and lurked for a good month before joining–and there was quite a lot of activity already at that point. It was the gorgeous PYO’s going up for sale in the Flea Market that pulled me in. ๐Ÿ™‚


                    I found the Forum in mid-late 2006, after googling Windstone looking to see if they still made my dragons cause all the shops that I knew about in the city had closed, and lurked for awhile before I finally got up the courage to join ๐Ÿ˜ณ


                      I found the forum while searching online for Windstone. If I recall correctly, that day I saw “Azalea”, the raffle prize, and signed right up – knowing nothing about forum etiquette or anything. Fools rush in … (but everybody was very tolerant). Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚


                        I found the forum just about a month or two after it came to be. I actually got an ebay message from skigod about an auction I had posted and she happened to mention a forum in the message and it and it got me curious. Next thing you know, here I was ๐Ÿ˜€

                          In 2006 about 4 months after the Forum started I was in e-bay looking at some pieces or won one and found Melody’s e-mail and sent her a message telling her how much I LOVED her work and how i have been collecting since 1988 and how many I had at the time and when I told her I have a brown Emperor she told me that he was the Holy Grail of Windstone collecting and invited me here and I hit with a BANG like 400 messages in each of my first 2 weeks then after people knew who I was it slowed WAY down but now that real life has taken over I get on even less

                          joined 10-10-2006 as you can see


                            The best way to see the member “order”, so to speak, is the gallery; it’s in the order when people joined. I was part of the LJ Windstone group when the forum came online – it was announced there, and tada! Here we are. I believe I’m like, #13 or something, including the staff and test members.

                            Read my books! Volume 1 and 2 of A Dragon Medley are available now.
                            I host the feedback lists, which are maintained by drag0nfeathers.


                              Here are the join dates. I was actually around before my join date but I was mostly helping to set up with icons and such.

                                I just went to the Windstone store and saw the forum link. After looking at a few of the categories, I quickly signed up.


                                  The last store near me that sold Windstones closed, so I started looking for them on eBay. Windstone was auctioning things off around this time; I won my OW and started looking online for regular sellers. I found the Yahoo Windstone group while looking in the summer of ’06, and it led me to the Forum. I lurked for about 3-4 months since I could read without joining, and finally bit the bullet and joined in Decemer of ’06.
