General questions about Maxforums
show user profile  9krausec
So... I was working today and for whatever reason I thought of MF. For 10 years now I have taken it for granted (need to donate again soon), but never asked about the origin story.

If Spoon or any of your seniors want to chip in please do!

Did Spoon start the site out of the blue or did he know a member or two originally before MF?

How did this iconic green happen? Random design choice?

Where do Fronats come from?

Who were the first 5 people to join MF. Are they still around today?

I'll probably have more questions, but I'd like to find some answers to MF lore here. THANKS!

I think that I might be the oldeste surviving member besides Spoon.
But my member number is as high as 113 i think so a few is missing.

I think Spoon once said that the first many member numbers were tests.

How do you find out your member number?

By the way, there was a question about some format conversion, and the format part got misspelled to fronat.

It was a hobby project when i started programming. I think it started in 1999 and back then, getting a site on the first page of altavista (at that time the most popular search engine) was quite easy. So people just found the page and started asking questions. I think Setherial was one of the every first members.

Its always that old sheepshaggers fault.

I had an account before this one, I remember the forum being another colour than green if that counts for anything.
