    In the Skeeter thread, she mentioned Flash as a founding member, signing on in 2001. Anyone earlier than that? Anyone else that early still playing here? Next year, it will be the tenth anniversary I think. What was the founding day?

    I believe that what Skeeter refers to with the term 'founding member' is a member who obtained an 'original' pawnstar (indicated in the profile), during the initial life of the site before there was a periodical subscription fee to be paid for full membership. The pawnstar was obtained through a voluntary contribution at the time (and was later rewarded by a lifetime subscription).
