How many of you are also Early Adopters?
lil-miss-moomoosical on July 27th, 2009 10:19 am (UTC)
I am.

I joined 26th May 2000.

I was the 3,713th user ;o) I think there were only a few hundred UK users at the time.

I notice you were even 'older' than me in terms of membership ;o) 262th user ;-p

Ugh, I hate being older. My grey hairs are starting to give me away ;]

ugh re: older I turn 30 in a months time.

Back when I first joined it was all old IRC and Uni peeps that came on here, most of those (including myself) have since gotten married, had kids etc. etc.

Yeah. I was a pup when I joined, almost 28 now. My 10 yr LJ anniversary is in Nov, hah.

Almost my longest online relationship I think, apart from AIM.

Not me, alas...
Knorg Knorgsson: goatsongcrackpig on July 27th, 2009 12:18 pm (UTC)
Not me, and I'm not a lass either.

Surely you can't be serious!

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley!
Schneelockeschnee on July 27th, 2009 05:24 pm (UTC)
Yay! I was hoping you'd pick that up. ^_^

It's still funny after all these decades :D
Schneelockeschnee on July 27th, 2009 08:51 pm (UTC)
Definitely - one of the best movies ever made, if not THE best.

Also, yay cacodemon! (Speaking of best things ever made and moving on to the subject of games...) ^_^

Knew about LJ back when you could be an still be considered early adopter, but was slow to join and didn't until late 2002.

Like this person, I knew about LJ long before I joined, so I probably could have been an early adopter, but was leery about the "the whole internet can read my journal" thing (I didn't know about friends-only stuff until after I created my account).
Capt. Jpilot on July 27th, 2009 10:54 am (UTC)
Me! Though I have long periods away from lj, and pretty much only use it to comment/follow fandom these days :)

I am not... but I am curious to know when the cut off was.
Dave: relaxinlurkies on July 27th, 2009 05:15 pm (UTC)
I also knew of for a while before joining, however, still joined up back in the day, #3372.

.bloodcurdling on July 27th, 2009 06:02 pm (UTC)
My current account isn't.
I've been on LJ for a long time though...since high school.
I went through a period of making and deleting journals rather frequently as I aged and matured.

Shes_Preciousshes_precious on July 27th, 2009 06:30 pm (UTC)
I was under a different account a lifetime ago.
The Love Bugthelovebug on July 27th, 2009 07:14 pm (UTC)
Yup, I am. User #4097, me.

I love the way that we are identified as being "Permanent Account, previously an Early Adopter". Like our accounts will revert back to being Early Adopter status when our Permanent accounts expi...

... hang on!

I'm considered a noob in LJ time, I didn't discover LJ until October 2005 and that was quite by accident.
Nonvenomousnonvenomous on July 27th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
I was, just in '99 on a previous name. Wish I still had it :(
Andyrileysaplank on July 27th, 2009 08:22 pm (UTC)
I'm not. Joined February 2004, #2305446. I believe that was soon after the need to have an invite code was abolished. Though with the amount of accounts that have been created since then I do feel as though I've been here quite a while at times.

Earliest for me was Aug 2004. My first LJ was knorg, then I had vaskalcorp, and if I could combine all the posts, and especially comments and perm user status into the oldest dated I'd do it! C'mon LJ, how about a "Combine old LJs and free up usernames!" option! There may well be an ultima underworld fan out there who wants some Vas Kal Corp...:D

I was paid member in my 2nd full year of paying when I purchased my perm membership.

I followed a friend here and just read and commented until I finally started posting in Dec 2001.

Created my journal on the cutoff day!

I had held off for a few weeks of people talking about it before I signed up.

Bought my perm account during the first perm account sale, back when the goal was to buy a single beefy Alpha server to run the site. :P
