I joined in June 2009 at #10,462 so I remember some of the old timers. But then I took about 3 years off.

I am number 1427. I joined shortly after the all the stats were reset to zero after the Great Crash, so at least I didn't have to start all over again. I don't play now as much as I used to do.

I don't remember when I joined, but it must have been around the time jimdgar, did because I'm #10433. I think I played for a few weeks, then stopped. I came back later ??, maybe a couple of months or maybe longer, but I've been here every since.

Lurker, you always have such good information.

Here's another tidbit. Look at the top right of your post, under the #13. It says you joined in June 2009. And if you go under "My Scores", it tells you in your lifetime stats exactly the date you joined. Guess you joined a month after I did!

Welcome, Newby! I'm coming up on 4 years in December. I've been doing paper and pencil cryptos since I was a kid in the 60s. You mentioned becoming a senior member. I was a junior member for 3 and a half years. What pushed me into the senior member category is when I reached 100 posts in the Forum. So you only have 94 to go. Have fun solving and good luck!

BTW, I guess I'm member 33569

Tilottama, google Bletchley Park WW2 . Turing, the Father of Computing worked there too.

And on a lighter note, you can´t become a good James Bond- type of spy if you leave traces of your location, nationality, date of birth , gender, language , current location , ancestral antagonism towards the British etc etc.

Them enemy Spymasters can trace everything about you - from the midwife who delivered you , to your school friends to your current place of residence.

But as far leveraging your code breaking skills go... Bletchley Park spying would be ideal for you.

But if you REALLY want to become a cloak and dagger kind of spy , perhaps you should create a new FALSE but plausible identity for yourself.

This is just advice from an old man who had similar dreams when he was a kid.
Bye. Happy Spying.

Default How long

I originally joined in July 2007, but all the data from before Feb 2008 was lost in the great crash. Largely quit playing for several years before I resumed last year.

Wow -- thanks, Lurker. So I joined in June of 2010, and I'm number 16,637.

Opallady is officially the longest-standing player who is still playing: Number 7! After her, it's gryhnd51, at number 13.

Funny that after I posted this, I basically disappeared for a couple of years, just because life got busy. Nice to be back.
