FR Pioneers Check in...1997-98 Sign up Dates Only
FR | 9-27-04 | Bob J

Posted on 09/27/2004 5:57:45 PM PDT by Bob J

I was having an argument with another FReeper about how many of the old timers were still around. I tell people there is a FReeper vsyndrome and that most of them are still around, they just don't post much anymore.

Here is your chance to put these rumours to rest. Chime in and let everyone know you still are alive and kicking. Post your registration number if you know it.

And that means something? I've had three different computers since then and three different logins. I can't even remember what my first screen name was.

Not an oldie, but the recent Buckhead/pajamahadeen fluury of signups made me nostalgic for the election 2000 fiasco signup flurry (under a different name) of which I was a part.

I should probably start another thread, but I am interested in hearing from others what event if anything led them to sign up?

A statistical sample shows a retention rate of about 4-6%.

Anyone can do this. Go to URL http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/user-posts?id=xxx where xxx = the old ID of the Freeper to see who's left. Take a range of ID numbers, say 10,000 - 19,999 and sample 100 numbers (a 1% sample).

It would be great if there were volunteers who could do this and plot the results over time.

Don't know the number, but my incept date says 8/28/98.

Wow, six years on FR, and I was a lurker before that.

The only thing that really seems that long ago was Elian, but this is not the place to rehash that debate.

Checking in, Bob J. Freeper #43.

Actually, quite a few of us were here before we had to register and get a number assigned. IIRC, you're part of that group. There were a lot of us signed up as of November 1997.

I don't know what my number is, but my page (and my memory) tells me I've been a member of Free Republic since July 9, 1998.

I was at the October 31st, 1998 March for Justice and met a lot of great people--including you Bob J! I manned the Speaker's tent and met Clinton's A Liar, Trixie (aka Lucianne Goldberg), JimRob, Alan Keyes, Gary Aldrich, Anne Coulter, Bonaparte, NavyVet, Mombonn, a whole passle of Texas Freepers, etc. My, how time flies. I am truly an old FReeper geezer. ;)

Sorry, I forgot how to look up my sign-up number.

I have never been a very prolific poster, and the past two years have hardly posted at all, but lurk every day.
