Oh that is so funny. I though it was some kind of wind-up because I immediately saw the dates (2001!!!) on the first thread. :lmao:


I recognise 2 DISer names. I won't even ask how you came across this thread. Very cool :thumbsup2

I am assuming the first post was when they first opened up a special board for UK planning?

I assume Wideeyes means the Ascending and Descending order of posts bit, can set it to show all threads ever and as this was the first thread...

The UK forums were a bit complicated back then as they actually lived in 2 places at once. There was a version where everyone hung out together on a co.uk domain and then there were another set here which were pretty much dead.

Unfortunately the server that the co.uk boards were hosted on died a death and so everyone migrated back to this version on the main DIS. Some people preferred being in a little 'Brit Community' rather than part of a multi-national site...they all went off and started the DIBB.

Aaaah, I see now. I never knew that. Funny thing is, I like this BECAUSE it is multi national. In fact, in my years of lurking I was hardly ever on the UK boards until last year really. I think most of my early posts were probably on the main boards too. Weird.

Thanks. I knew about sorting them. I just interpreted your post differently so I didn't realise that was what you were referring to. :)

I agree! One of the things I've always liked about this site is the interaction with people from all over - I like being social, it makes the world seem like a cosier place :) (My favourite other forum is Restaurants)

I hang out almost exclusively on the DIS as a result :surfweb:

Same here. I will say though, there is a slight distinction: people on the main boards are friends. Those on this board are family. :grouphug:

That would be great! :thumbsup2

I was intrigued by this thread last night and so I went back to the first couple of pages from 2001. It was so strange. Pages of threads with 0 replies on. I can't imagine that. Now we have threads that run over pages in the first day. It was almost eerie.

Here and the restaurant boards are my haunts on the DIS.

I do occasionally venture further afeild but there seem to be more arguments on some of the boards.

I didn't realise that about the DIBB. I do sometimes post on there but this is my 'home' board.

It was news to me too. But it seems to be pretty amicable or I am totally naive. A fair number of people seem to be members of both, which can only be a good thing I would imagine. I never really go on there. I'm not registered there and I get all my info and laughs on here. :cool1:

Thanks for posting this memory jogger - there are a couple of names that are real blasts from the past ! :grouphug:

One of the things I most remember from then is all the angst when the co.uk server died, and lots of people got in a knot about losing their post count when we migrated to the disboards.com server. ;)

why what difference did the post count make?

I have been on the dibb a few times but if i have a question to ask i will always ask it on the DIS :) I just find i get much better answers and people are more willing to go out of their way to help with something or try and find answers for you.

I used to post a lot on the weddings board too, as i had a WDW wedding between that board and the UK ones the help i got with planning my wedding was invaluable!

Oh yeah, heh, I'd forgotten about that bit!

Well, I think anyone with a high post count has a certain reason to be proud - it shows they're a regular contributor and been around a while etc. I don't think there was anyone who wasn't a bit sad that so many posts had been eaten by a fried hard drive, but I think perhaps (and this is not said to judge or anything) some folks felt a certain loss in status. That all their posts had been for nothing, etc.

Of course that's not true because many, many people over the years had been given help and advice and had great WDW trips as a result and nothing could take that away. But...yeah. Not everyone felt so pragmatic about it.
