Default How long has this been going on?

How long has there been a cryptograms.org? I know the site was re-set in 2008, shortly before I joined, so there are never any comments from before then -- so, when did this actually all start? Do we know who the senior-most member is?

And whatever happened to some of the players on the all-time list? I know we lost Pootie, which was terribly sad. But how about cknapp, the countess, laura, and kat? How about JCarlosCuevas, who apparently hasn't played since 2010, but some of whose records still stand? I hope they're all still out there, but it does make me wonder: are there people who are able to give up cryptogramming cold turkey after logging so many games?

Oops, I joined in 2010 -- misremembered that.

at the bottom of 'my scores' page, it says "Monthly competitions began in February 2007." perhaps that's it?

Ah, maybe that's right. Anyone out there disagree?

I'm always impressed by the people who joined just a year or two ago but are already climbing up the all-time list. (I'm looking at you, LLapp!) Seems like I have to run just to stay in place to hold my spot in the mid-sixties . . .
