How Many Years Have you been Visiting Snowtroopers?
« on: December 14, 2014, 12:47:34 AM »

On January 27, 2015 - it will be 10 years I have been on Snowtroopers.   Got me wondering how long everyone else has been on Snowtroopers.ca ?

Hoo Nelly. I started posting at Star Wars internet sites during the leadup to EpII, so circa 2001-2002. I know Snowtroopers wasn't the first site I registered at, but it was the second - I would have to guess at least 12 years with a chance at 13. Wowee.  :P

The stats on my profile say "September 29, 2003" was when I signed up. So for me it's over 11 years but boy it has felt longer than that. The stress of toy collecting ages you prematurely too, kinda like being the president if you've ever seen the before-and-after photos of what Obama looked like before he got elected and today :)

edit: JR, your profile says you signed up on "September 19, 2003", a mere 10 days before me: that makes you my older (non-asian) brother in the collecting world  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

2003-08-23 is what day the site says I joined... But I remember being one of the original members here... and prior - back when it was called Power of the North or something like that.

August 23, 2003 is probably when the new (current site) started, as this is my start date as well.  I too remember the Power of the North site.

Yup, I remember Power of the North side. This came up not too long ago, I think. I'm amazed and pleased that the site is still going after all these years. Incredibly helpful, and I've made a few friends along the way.

It certainly ebbs and flows, it will be interesting if there is a spike in interest with the new movies. Either new blood or old folks coming back.

Coming up on 10 years in March.  The lead up to Revenge of the Sith, when Zellers was guilty of putting the figures out before the street date.  I creeped the site a few times in the previous year.

I registered August, 2003 as well.  Also was on POTNS before that.  I know we have an old post here with some of that history - I will try to track it down and link it.

EDIT
I found it, but it was in the mod section, so rather than link it, I will quote it here...

Years ago when I was 15 (6-7years ago) I started posting/visiting SirStevesGuide's forums.

I noticed that the few Canadian collectors were always upset that we got new waves of toys MONTHS after the US did, and it was frustrating trying to figure out what was really going on in the collecting world of Canada.

So myself and another kid (he was a year younger than me) started up a webpage on geocities, having collectors email us reports/finds/news/whatever, which in turn we would post.
He (I really can't remember his name, but after a year or two he got bored and decided he liked playing the N64 game Perfect Dark more)

This website was titled "Power of the North Side"

Then I had the idea of starting a POTNS forum/message board, to make things easier for ourselves and develope  a community.

POTNS's URL jumped around a bit around geocities, and the forum was our old ezboard

Over time we had a couple other guys come & go in helping us update the main page.

THEN KODA CAME ALONG

He's the one who had the idea of us actually getting a REAL URL & WEBSITE.

Koda's the one who budgeted the entire site, dealt with sponsors, etc.

G3PO created the graphics (ex: http://www.snowtroopers.ca/trilogoguide/images/POTF2banner.jpg )


As for what to call the new site, we had members suggested different ideas and Snowtroopers.ca was decided on.
Unfortunatly I can't remember who suggested "Snowtroopers.ca"  (Barada? Rad? sorry guys, no idea)

Snowtroopers.ca was created a month or so before the realease of AOTC.

And you guys know the rest.



I do find it funny that the majority of Snowtroopers.ca 's membership is adult men, when the community it's founded on was made up by a 14 & 15 year old  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:
