Here since the beginning...more or less. Something like Jan 2001? Introduced to PF by Niqque. Anyone remember her?

I joined in the first week or two of PF 2.0. I was invited by Greg (IIRC) after posting on sci.physics *shudder* for a while. Probably the only piece of non-spam mail I got from posting my addy on that cess-pool.

A lady at the American Physical Society directed me here in March 2001, I believe.

Hello everybody,

My name is Gokul.

I've been here 3 months, and I'm addicted to PF. It's been about ten minutes since I last posted, and I post about 10 times a day. Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night, and need to post on PF before I can go back to sleep. I check PF first thing in the morning (before I read the news), and it's the last thing I do before going to bed.

Help me !!!

Unless you've been here since before March 2003, it says when you joined beneath your user name.

Joined 3/11/02. I was out of work and dying for some conversation about physics with other people, so I typed "physics chat message board forum" into Google, and found PF.

Long ago...
Once in a month. A couple of months ago, I posted daily but then I had no time, and had to stop and asked someone to come and take care of the stuff.
When I came back and read some of what I missed, amazingly found some misunderstood my words which were taken from Homey Simpson with my "momentarily" angry ones...
What is the prize for a win after all ? (*_*)

Since PF2.. with long breaks in between. At one stage i was obsessed, then it died down. Now i read, more than post..
i came to the forums for help with a year 11 physics assignment, now in my second year of uni.. it's been a while to say the least LoL

I came looking for some ranodom stuff to read about string theory. I was amazed by the abundance of ideas in this forum. I've been hoocked ever since, but I mostly just read since most of the time I have no idea what is going on.

I got here from M. Kaku's website... this is probably one of the best places to converse physics/other sciences.

I've been around for less than two weeks... I'm definitely a n00b here.

I was introduced to this forum via a link on a C++ forum. Someone was suggesting that we add the formula creation capabilities of this site to the forum. I followed their link to check it out, and was blown away by what I saw.

My main attraction to this site is that I don't really know that much about the material it encompasses. I've always thought about becoming a physicist, but I haven't ever really taken the time to seriously learn about physics outside of the tiny bits of it taught at school. It's a humbling experience for a junior in high school to be in the presence of college professors, nuclear physicists, and chemists. I hope to learn a lot from my stay here.

I was part of PF 1.0 and re-registered at PF 2.0. So the date on the left is only the re-registration date. I haven't posted for a while, I think ... more than 6-8 months maybe.
Dont remember exactly when I joined. End 2001 or beginning 2002. Maybe Greg can help.

Here here!

I've been reading the posts since '01 (which, I guess, means I picked the wrong poll choice...oh well), and started posting just before it changed to PF2. I posted a bit more on PF2 (in fact, I'd just made it to the first page of the member's list when we upgraded again). Then I posted like mad for a while, on PF3, but I have been extremely irregular of late. Anyway, I'm 16, and have really grown with the PFs, if just through being exposed to such a vast amount of information as well as a group of people who actually value knowledge and the pursuit thereof.

I agree.. beautiful control of language, Mentat, and a very clear mind.. but we already knew he's a genius since a long time :)
