Re: Site issues - apologies

Being very new to the forum I had no idea there had been a crash. At my first visit I was surprised that there were so few threads in a forum that have been around for a while. I figured there had been a purge of inactive threads or something similar.



When did B5TV go online by the way?

Probably sometime in March 2001.

That date sounds about right. I think I joined in April of that year. It was definitely before 9/11. This place was abounding with activity back in those days! Very few of us 'First Ones' remain.

Well, the AntonyF Join Date is March 31st, 2001, so I figured that was the start.

In 2001 it was originally B5LR.com. When the then SciFi channel didn't pick up Legend of the Rangers, it was later changed to B5TV.com (IIRC sometime late summer of 2002).

I spent the first six months lurking at work. I didn't join until I finally got an internet connection at home, in late 2001.

I'd forgotten all about it originally being B5LR! I came over from Antony's old Star Trek forum.

Good point about B5LR.com. I remembered it but forgot to include that detail.
