I'm from New Delhi, India..

www.studentdoctor.net was the first BB I visited, and got hooked on to.. Stumbled upon YaBB while searching for a free BB software (on Google I think..) to establish a similar forum for Indian medical students..

Got it working after a few stumbles.. And fell in love with it.. And that was BEFORE I found Boardmod Grin.. And then follows the usual stuff of getting addicted and never looking back and so on.. Grin

By the way, I'm from Littleton, Colorado, USA.

Knew of this spot years ago but only had a need for a forum setup recently. I think I saw it on the "Tudogs" site.

I live in Macon, Georgia (home of Little Richard, Otis Redding, The Allman Brothers, etc.) and do Web design. I had never used a bulletin board on a site before, so just did a quick Google search. I downloaded three, but installed only this one, since it doesn't involve a database and I'm using a cheap host.

I'm not much of a coder, but found the configuration very easy.  I even installed a mod on the second day.

Oh, the board is on a new site which is just being developed - http://williamsstore.com.

Near Kiel - North Germany.

In the beginning i just searched (googled) for a free bulletin board to provide a communication platform for my friends and me. It must have been in april 2001, since my first version was YaBB Gold - Beta 7 Grin
At that time there haven't existed much "real" competitors so it wasn't very hard to stumble over YaBB. I haven't found any other forum software with that much features and good looking style AND for free!

So i setuped my first BB but wanted a lot of adjustments for my needs. That's why i started playing around with the code and learning some Perl. I got relativ fast how YaBB works, modified it and the result was that i joined this community in Mai 2001 to help others who needed help installing and customising YaBB. The warm, family like (Wink) atmosphere of this community here and over at BoardMod, was one reason to stay such a long time, for sure.

No wonder that i started publishing some of my changes as small mods and also joined the BoardMod community.

That was my way to YaBB Wink

I'm from Milan, Italy but i live in Cornwall, UK, where the weather is not as miserable as in Manchester, but, in return, there is no football at all (at least no football worth watching) Tongue

I came accross YaBB while I was setting up my gf's band's website and they wanted a bullettin board to post about gigs and stuff in general. I installed it and instantly (well...almost) loved it and now I am also trying to help (unfortunately not as much as I'd like coz I have to work as well  Lips Sealed) with YaBB2.

Mike: Mention names and die Tongue

I'm from Oslo, Norway(greatest country in the world, really(and we own Manchester in football, really)).

I found YaBB while browsing for more geeky stuff to do. Since then I've been the parasite around here.

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (Taking University in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada) Where stuff is...  stuff.


A good friend of mine found it for me (back in the days of yabb.org), then showed it to me.  I cautiously joined, unsure of what awaited me.

After a while, I got comfortable, and just never left.  There were attempts, but once I'm comfy, that's the end of it Wink.

Whether it was a last final attempt to evict me, or a reward for my bravado in PMing an admin about it, I was promoted to Moderator Status.  THAT VERY MONTH I fell to one of the deadliest diseases in the world (60-80% mortality rate) Roll Eyes.

After an improbable recovery, I came back to the boards and stuck around for a few more years.

For some (as of yet) unknown reason, a small band of members formed a movement to give me a promotion while keeping me completely oblivious of their actions.

Needless to say, I was rather amazed to log in one day and find a PM congratulating me on Crony/Staff status.

As it stands I am officially staff, but the closest job description I can come up with is sit around grinning like an idiot. Grin

I was looking for bbs and was checking many different forums in use. One game forum used YaBB and I liked how it looked and felt. Then I found this community and my choise was clear.

From Salt Lake City, Utah.

Came across YaBB from a search engine.  Was searching something like "free message board".  I was dying.  I had no idea that such great software existed for free.  Opened my eyes to the world of great, legit, free software.   Cheesy
  

Sorry if I do not reply to PM's very promptly.  I am not around much right now.  The rest of the staff would be happy to help you.  Smiley SEO Company
