I've surprised a few Cyburbia users by changing their registration dates to reflect their first posting on what was then either the PAIRC bulletin board or Cyburbia Cafe.

Provide evidence of pre-vBulletin regular participation in Cyburbia (search archives of www.cyburbia.org, www.ap.buffalo.edu and www.arch.buffalo.edu on http://web.archive.org), and I'll change your registration date too. I won't change your post count, but at least you'll get some recognition for your longevity online.

Friends of mine back home who continually ask my how my architecture education is going...and along the same lines...having to constantly explain to people the difference between Planning and architecture.
And you should change your join date as well.....you were user #1 of course. :)

That was quite an interesting trip down memory lane. The earliest post I could find was from December 1998.

In response to: Re: LOW PAY posted by Dan Tasman on November 11, 1998 at 02:19:42:

Stay away from jobs in West Virginia?....Try Louisiana. The starting salary for an entry-level planner in the New Orleans area is $19,500, and they have the audacity to require a masters degree. It cost me nearly that much in tuition, books, travel, etc. to earn the masters and that is what I'm offered? It's no wonder that many of my friends opted for other careers.
