History of DonationCoder.com
« on: March 12, 2008, 07:07:34 PM »
I have been looking trying to find some history of the origination of DC.  How did it come into existence and by whom, wel you probably get the gest of it.  Was it called something else before DC?

Mouser, are you the resident historian?  :D

I think there's not better way than to check out the About Page, and seeing the older threads (like cody's creation and such ;))

Thanks Jg, I missed that page.  I searched the forums for some of the older posts and learned a little history in the process.

I missed the page to, or seen it too much time ago.

Oh, about the "hello" section at the bottom of the page.
Mouser, for the Italian, maybe instead of "Buon giorno" you could put a "Ciao": it's more friendly and informal!  :Thmbsup:

Might be nice to collect the top 10 historical threads on DC.


(Cody mascot birth thread is here)

So out of the 111,449 members, how many are active on the forums?  Do most join to look/find/ask about a specific thing or topic and then become inactive after that?

I think I came in fairly early. I remember Mouser asking for submissions for a Donationcoder mascot and Zaine submitting the Budweiser girls with "Donationcoder" across their swimsuits (hey, you changed it Z, ??). ;D
I also remember the IRC weekend (can't find that post...), the drupal debate, lots of other topics that caused quite a stir at the time even though I may or may not have participated.
3 years seems such a short time, yet an eternity...

I can't remember when I joined (well, 12 days before my birthday, 2005), but it was all Jibz' fault :P
