Tomorrow I'll have been a member of this forum for 11 years.  It's amazing to think when I first posted here I was still a teenager... affraid affraid affraid affraid affraid affraid


ok... so that's pushing it a bit...

... but I was closer to being a teenager than now.

I thought you were one of the few people who have been here longer than me...I thought it had been longer than that.

Many of us have actually been at CHM several years MORE than what our "REGISTRATION DATE" shows. CHM was at some other Board before NiceBoard. So, while mine shows May of 2007, I know for a fact I was on CHM at LEAST 2 years prior, cuz I remember bonding much closer with my family here during my very first back surgery - and that was in 2005.

Maybe AllDat remembers when he first started CHM ?

I remember being here 2005 (maybe as far back as 2003) , and I swear that Fundy was here before me.
Won't know for sure because that was long before we were on forumotion (we used to be on EZ boards).

I believe CHM originally started in 2002, but we didn't see much traffic until 2003.  It is hard to believe that we are still up and running after so many years.

It is also sad how much time I have wasted online.  LOL. I wouldn't trade it, though, as I wouldn't know most of you fine people.

When I came along, Vonnie, Staybrite and Alldat were def already here, and it was before 2005, perhaps 2003 or 2004. I know a few came and went, but many of the regulars here now, were here from the early days. I'm pretty sure Topshot, Hardkore and Fundy were here before me as well, which means Fundy's been here longer than 11 years   Wink

I remember being here before G/F, but can't remember when Staybrite or Vonnie came on board.

So I'm older than I think, that's kind of scary! Very Happy

Vonnie pretty much came in when I started the place.  She and I met on the old Napster.  She was discovering Christian metal bands for the first time, and I was trying to recover old classics that I had once owned on tape but had gotten rid of for some stupid reasons.  We both would download stuff and share with each other, too.  Not all of the song files were great, so that sparked me searching for CDs to replace my downloaded pirated albums.  She and I have known each other for around 18 years.

I started CHM at first because of all the bickering and fighting on the old CMR.  Sure, I was in the thick of it.  I needed a place to retreat and built this.  Then, I decided before I really started telling people we were there that we could be a sister site.  Where they go both secular and Christian, we would just focus on what we knew.  We'd stick with Christian music but focus on anything that rocks whether it was grunge, hard rock, metal, whatever.  It works for us.  And, while I have ventured back into secular music, I still stick with mostly Christian just because I like how it lifts my spirits and isn't promoting a lot of debauchery.  Most of the bands I loved back in the day were pretty nasty.

We've seen some folks come and go.  Some were curiosity seekers, others trolls/troublemakers, some got mad over little things, some got mad over something they felt were big things, and we have several lurkers who just read music news.  We will continue to be whatever we need to be while hopefully retaining the family feel.  If that ever stops, then we will stop or I will hand off the reigns to someone else.  Today, though, we are family--we are CHM.

The members of CHM are no matter what family.
Yep, we are.

In all these years I've seen that many names are changed in guest.

Cool to hear the account of how CHM started.  I'm pretty certain when I came along, Alldat, RockerVu2, Topshot & Fundy were all here (along with a handful of other regulars & semi-regulars who have since moved on).  I know I have been here longer than Guilty/Forgiven because I made him join.  Laughing

You did, didn't you ? You snagged me from either CMR or Firestream. Well done bro ! If not for you I wouldn't have ventured over here and met so many amazing brothers and sisters in Christ who were there for me during some pretty difficult times.

I can't remember where I snatched you from.  I just remember we were trading CDs like mad, and I thought for sure you would make a great addition to this place.

It's cool CHM was the cause that here a family was grown.
It's cool to have my CHM family members.

I agree completely. Some of you were there for me during some particularly difficult times, and only when you are in Glory will you finally understand what you truly meant to me.

Yes, I was one of the early adopters because CMR was too much into secular stuff and too much drama. I could probably pin it down pretty well if I wanted to load my email archives (only go back to 2006 on my current laptop) but 2002 sounds reasonable. I know we (well, the board host) had a crash in 2005. Then I guess EZboard folded in Jan 2007 so we started over again on forumotion (I couldn't convince Chris to self-host so we'd have full control). I purchased the domain name almost exactly 10 years ago to at least guard against having to move somewhere else again.

I have no idea when I first joined. I just remember seeing it mentioned in Alldat's sig over at the CMR, so I checked it out. Honestly,what can I say...I like it here!
