    This is also when we officially got the domain name theologyonline.com
    My most fond memories are from this phase.

      Look what I dug up! A screen shot of the very first version of TheologyOnLine. Notice we didn't yet own the domain name "theologyonline.com".

      This screen shot was taken Oct 27th 1997 - I am not sure how long TOL was up and running before this shot was taken.
      I just read the text on that... no political discussion? What was that like?

      This is about the time I started posting. I think this look began in late '03.

        Wow, I've been around pretty much since it's beginning. It's really amazing when I think of everything I've learned, all the friends I've made, and how it's helped me become a Christian with a backbone.

        Sometimes I think, "What if I had never come across this site?" (Or more like what if a certain person hadn't kept after me to check it out.)

        Ewwww!!! Don't even want to think about it!!! :::shiver::::

        Happy Birthday to one of the best sites that the internet ever had the privilege to be introduced to. And thank you to it's hardworking Administrator who has had to put up with a lot over the years to keep this thing going.

                wow it's neat to look at the old TOL pages I myself didn't join till about a year ago(but i still liked looking at it). a couple of months ago i was digging on the www and found an article about the internet in 1996 aol was the only i.s.p. and in 96 broke 5mil. members (remember that?,lol).

                I noticed knight has a thread about going through and deleting old threads and everyone is suggesting what to delete to save space. Well thats when it hit me, since we have all the past threads in archive should we start a new thread and search all the post leading up to y2k,end of the Mayan calender,12/12/12 ect. and see if there are any that told us they were going into their shelters and we told them we would come and let them know it was safe to come out?

                Did we forget to go tell them and their still in there?(don't delete those threads!) so we can look through them and find the missing screen names and go knock on their bunker doors and get them out,(just a suggestion,what if we forgot?).

                    I had a similar job at the old Christianforums.com; Are you archiving or simply backing up?

                          Heh. Glad to see I am not the only one whose attachments end up directed to error dialogs.

                          Most of my older posts with attachments are getting the same treatment. Some of the newer ones with this new vB release are as well. Maybe some symbolic link script is hosed up?

                                Yeah... it's looking like it's very possible we may have lost a lot (i.e., most) of the image attachments from years gone by.

                                Well.... onward and upward.
