Default 20 Years for Fire On Ice Flames community

The Calgarypuck birth happened without me, I think it came into being in the fall of 1999, Mike Board and I merged our sites in the spring of 2000.

But before that was the original Fire On Ice message board, and community, which is now 20 years old.

Thanks to Displaced Flames Fan for reminding me earlier this week.

So 20 years talking hockey, but how many active posters go all the way back? The members list shows 4 pages of people signing up in October of 2001, when I took Calgarypuck off the Rivals server and out on it's own, but who goes back to the old site?

I was there...the old ladder style board...My first venture into the message board community.
Thanks Bingo.

This is the oldest link for CP on the Wayback machine in the newer format. I was GerryCheevers back then.

Cant seem to find anything before that for Fireonice...great times.

I checked it out once or twice, but didn't become a member until 2004. Kinda sad that I missed out because the community was really impressive back then. Not that it isn't now, but those were the good old days.

ok this is classic ... found the old but still existing message board from when I took the site off rivals.

Not the 1997 version but within 5 years of it.

I joined I think the summer before the run. Cowpersons posts were one of the main things that drew me in

Awesome...not only that you found that, but that contains the epic "iginla has signed"..."no he hasn't" debacle that TSN perpetrated on hockey fans.

I remember the original Fire on Ice site. I would have joined in late 97 or early 98.

Wow completely forgot about that old format. I've now spent the majority of my life as a member of this board. Weird.

I lurked on CP from about 2001-02 until 2007, when I finally got the nerve to sign up. Happy 20th birthday!

Quite a lot of familiar names looking through the posters in those threads. That in itself is pretty impressive.

What a loss Cowperson was though, always quality with that guy. Great dog pics.

I seem to recall a black background style board when I first joined. Was that the ladder style board?

I definitely posted on the board that is on that archive link.

Good times. Thanks again for creating this community.

Was a regular on the old board and was slow to make the jump to CP, hence not being in the 2001 club. Those were dark times to be a Flames fan, these boards were kind of like Flames Fan Anonymous... "Hi, I'm cannon7, and I'm a Flames fan..."

I joined the old board just before the switch. It was Jeff (RIP) who introduced me to it. That was the fall of 2000.
