Would seem to be a clue Here (http://pprune.org/forums/memberlist.php?s=&action=getall&what=datejoined&ltr=&perpage=30&orderby=joindate&ausername=&homepage=&icq=&aim=&yahoo=&joindateafter=&joindatebefore=&lastpostafter=&lastpostbefore=&postslower=&postsupper=&direction=DESC&pagenumber=3260)

Listed by date joined, Danny would seem to hold the distinction...
Makes sense? :cool:

Historically, the first post came from Danny, although the archive branch in Admin are not sure whether this took place in December 1995 or December 1996. PPRuNe has gone through several incarnations (as well as ISPs) along the way and it's hard to track down any of the original stuff these days. The original setup was as a mailing list. It then evolved in to a website with Danny and Rob Lloyd handmaking the pages each day, before progressing on to Bulletin Board software and ending up where we are today.

It's also interesting to note that since I joined as a Mod back in 1997, my pay has increased by over 4000%. You can't fault Danny's generosity, can you ??

:ok: :E

This at least is given the distinction of being thread #1 (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1)

it says 2001, so it must have been after the resurection, after the evil threads were cast out of the board and a blue light descended saying "Thou haves't a protection fault".

I still have some hard copies (print outs) of the early days, circa 1997, with one or two entries by Kapitan M :O
There were only a couple of forums then, Rumours & News, and Jet Blast, and to post involved sending an email to
[email protected]
and then waiting to see the results.

Tales abounded of a young, up and coming sprog flying ice laden aircraft in the depths of dark nights, to and from Fraggle Rock.

several incarnations...and a meltdown or two :{
