Joined when the paper version of TRL ended, or within a month or so(sometime 2001 ish?), didn't even have www then.
Probably met a few more members than I realise*, been here off and on through a few "interesting times", shall we say, from a personal point of view.

* and from this year, when my exile ends, I hope to meet a lot more.

Been goldcard as my main persona** from day 1, elsewhere I have another name on every site I register to.


** had a few others when allowed, bit was never rhubarbtriangulist, can't spell it.

Edit: spelling....


I am rhubarbtriangulist. (Well I should be I live in the rhubarb triangle)

I was Bob at first and then became Bob8 in the early 2000's, then Rhubarb Trianglist and Bob8.

1999, I was living in Essex, studying for an MSc. It was a long time ago.

My first posts ever were on an Oxford Cavaliers messageboard, probably around 1997 or 1998. Have posted as "Jonty" since 1999, on 13World and on the Barrow Raiders sites before they were integrated into the Rivals network. The Raiders board on Rivals is continuous to the one now linked to TotalRL.

Joined TotalRL back in April 2001 I think.

I used to use a Newsgroup, and there was a guy on there who called himself Mugwump, this would be about 1999. I started posting on here in my own name in 2002. When the forum changed about 2004 I changed my user name to Trojan, because it reflected where I now live - Troy. Which unfortunately is an anagram of Tory sad.gif


Mugwump was around in the rsrl days, and possibly even as far back as the rsr days.

vbfg was around back then as well.

That's me.  I'm done.

Muwump went to the RLFans VT as soon as it started.

Geoff Foster is his real name, apparently.

That was a masterstroke. You got your money back a couple of times over (cheap tickets for the 2004 Tri Nations etc) plus loads of dickheads disappeared overnight.

First posts were on the Dewsbury Rams message board around 2000/01 then joined on here soon after, so around 10 yrs I guess. Paid my 10 pounds and stuck with my original username - seems a bit daft as I'm no longer a student. Maybe I'll change it to Rhuby or something equally ace.

Thirded. Although I reckon League Publications Ltd does pretty well out of the google ads, a nominal payment would show appreciation for the hosting and moderating of the messageboards. I took advantage and enjoyed a subscription to the Rugby Times. biggrin.gif

I posted on the virtual terrace at least as early as 1999 and I'm pretty sure I joined this forum at the earliest opportunity and I'm pretty sure I was posting before I emigrated in 2002. There was a gap as I established myself in NZ....hence my profile showing 2004 as my start date.

I also posted on 13world, rugbywar and legendsworldofsport (LWOS - an aussie forum that morphed into leagueunlimited)

I posted on rlfans prior to emigrating but found it too fragmented and so never really got back into it once I was settled here. The same was true for leagueunlimited, i really enjoyed being part of LWOS but couldn't shift over - too unwieldy, too difficult to get discussions that didn't descend into bickering.

totalrl is really the only forum/website that I've stuck with since joining t'internet generation (with the exception of google and hotmail).

Sorry for not having included you on the list of long standing posters.

Student Ram, Your name is perfect for this thread. Though MIAG's awkward post to Millward when he was Wigan coach also stands out.

I couldn't tell you how long it's been since I discovered the TRL forum, I remember the trashing of the old forum on closing day and I remember the lobster wars of Clawphin and MobyClaw. I was there to pay my 10 and I was there when League Freak got banned for the final time. I remember when Mad Dai from Ponty met Stephen Jones in Cardiff and gave him an earful. I remember JE JE JERRY WHO TYPED EVERYTHING IN CAPITALS AND SEEMED TO LIVE IN EVERY COUNTRY IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE.
