IGN when the boards opened in 2000. Been on IGN since 1997 during the N64.com days, but they didn't have message boards till the year 2000. Hard to believe there was once a time even message boards didn't exist for a gaming site.

I was only 12 years old back then too. Mostly posted on the N64 or Pokemon board, then IGN community board when I tried to become a 13 year old mod. Those were the days.

Some videogame forum which no longer exists and whose name I've forgotten. This was back in 2001 or so already.

IGN was my 2nd one. Joined it in 2004 and was mostly active there from 2004 to 2006 or so. IGN Boards are still around, but they're a former shell of themselves these days.

I was 14 when I joined IGN. I mostly posted in the Ninja Turtles and wrestling boards. The SmackDown board was the most popular IGN forum after the vestibule. Back then IGN had boards for nearly every big enough property.

The fall of IGN's boards began in 2009 or so when they made a board update that forced people to log in with their e-mail instead of their username from then on. People need to remember that a lot of the big IGN users had 2000-2007 accounts, which was before everyone simply used gmail. A lot of people used hotmail, outlook, yahoo or other providers. Hell ISP e-mail accounts used ot be a thing! Which means a lot of people either no longer remembered which e-mail they had associated their account with or just could no longer access it. Plus, a lot of people loved IGN Insider. Crazy to think you used to have to buy a subscription to be able to quote, post thumbnails, URLs, have avatars/icons, etc. but IGN made a lot of money with that back then.

I think the only IGN forum that's still active nowadays is The Vestibule. And it turned into a place full of political arguments and arguments about social issues and such in the past 4-5 years or so.

I joined a Bionicle board when that was in its greatest height. Had to do it with "parent permission" because I was that young (I was in...fourth grade, maybe?) and my mom talking to a mod/admin about how many other elementary-school aged kids were on the board. And was assured it was pretty common.

All the ones where I really started to plant my internet roots were in Invisionfree boards...and that's pretty much gone under.

While I knew of Serebii, Gamefaqs and IGN beforehand, this was the first forum that I actually joined.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

I think an old site called toonzone might have been one of the first. I'm pretty sure that was the name and I think it's still around. also HT Forum.

have not been to either in years.

Technodrome and He-man.org are two of my oldest though...way back in 2002.
Thinking of giving up the latter..it's getting too woke and politically sensational.

Why not? I am sure that you have grown since then in maturity.
