it depends on how you define "cool", i think the topic is talking about "cool" as "don't act like 12 year olds" or "don't ruin the enjoyment of the bbs"

Has anybody realised that sign-up date is inconsequential yet? I'm sure plenty of '08ers are cool in their own right.

Actually, quite alot of users have pointed it out already, yes. I agree that sign up date doesn't matter.

Most of '07 users are assholes and 08' are noobs.

Who cares? Is your "cool" status on an internet forum that important?

Also, '08ers = NEVER COOL!

You know people wait in the shadows stalking mod posts for the chance to jump at the idea that they might be *gasp* WRONG.

Psh, '05?

Anyway, I think sign-up date is important within its own respect because I know tons of fuckers from '04 who only posted that year. Some fuckers from '05 who did the same, and so on for every fucking year. So those who sign up later both missed a lot of flash content as well as bbs interactions. Personally I think most sign-ups after '07 are trash; there are true exceptions to this rule though... And if you think it's you whom is reading this, it's not.

Although in all truth, I think it should be up to the older users to decide... Even in my mind I signed up late, over the years as the "older" users have faded it feels more and more like I've been here a long time. But in all truth, if you go back to '06 or '07 you would fucking be surprised; there were a lot of fucking people "older" than I am. Even a good amount that posted time to time from '99! So who am I to decide? I haven't been here long.

And another thing to keep in mind is fucking alts, people who have ancient accounts and make new fucking ones.

My posts get worse the higher my post count goes up so if I ever was cool, I'm definitely infamous now.

If I take nothing else away from the BBS, it's that it truly does not matter what date you signed up. That is the unique thing about this forum. Most other forums I go to, people completely ignore you unless you signed up 06-07 or before, no matter how epic, or informative your posts are. But here, everybody is somebody, whether you sign up yesterday, or in 99.

I actually really like '10ers, it's the '09ers that were obnoxious. '11ers are alright I guess.

I highly doubt that I will hate 12'ers. If at all, it is nice to see new users around.

Reading through some of the responses of this thread, I'm really surprised and disappointed by how much someone's sign-up date seems to matter around here. I know that I make jokes about being an '06er, thus making me great, but all jokes aside, it just doesn't matter. Who cares if someone signed up in '99, '00, '01, '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, or '11? No one who's important, anyway. There are great '11ers and shitty '01ers, '05ers, etc.

Some of you guys place so much value on a number that is intrinsically unimportant. That's just capricious.
