I would really be interested in knowing how this forum was started and the founding memebers. Is it possible to have a section that details the history? As well as how many memebers are registered here?

There used to always be a thing at the bottom saying how many people were registered, who was the last one registered, current birthdays, etc....

I recall from that old version that there were over 10,000 registered users, and on any given day we had a couple of hundred visitors.

I don't know now how long ago it was upgraded, but miss that feature.

Forum Stats are only available in the control panel, which is only available to Rhaya and the Admins.

Let me ask is I could post the information... I will let you guys know where I post it.

Could Rhaya come up with a brief history of the forum? I also wonder how many members there are now.

I DO remember that a few years ago she was thinking about discontinuing the site, can't remember if it was a time or money issue. It was a VERY traumatic few weeks until she was able to figure out a way to 'keep' us!


My stats are:

Member #: 733
Registered on: 08/17/01 03:00 PM

So know the forum is older than that (and with 732 older members).

I'll second the motion!


I'm member #4004, registered on 12/27/03. I know that in the beginning I had a much higher member number - something like 7, 8, or 9 thousand something. I think they trimmed the membership list a few years back.

Heidi'smom, glad you mentioned your membership number has changed. I always wondered if any members who joined and left were still in our total count or had been dropped.

I remember at least once when quite a few members were dropped from the list because they were not active in a long time. At that time there were over 10,000 members and it didn't take long to build back up.

Currently I am member #1897

The dogs that started it all. This site was made for them.






Pictures of Rhaya's Atlas.





Atlas all grown up with Rhaya's shepherd Zoe.




Another picture of Zoe. In this picture she is 3 1/2 years old.



Took just a little searching to find these pictures on site.

And look at what it's turned into! Wow.

I'm number 7272, registered in 2005, but I actually registered in 2003 and changed names in 2005. So I've been here for five years almost. Wow.
