Can you remember your first forum or website? Who were you hosted by? Is your site still in operation or has it long since closed its doors?

I don't know why but I bought my first name as a domain and put a forum on it. It was actually pretty huge. lol I bought my hosting from Site Ground which was alright but I realized I could get more for way less money elsewhere so I eventually moved hosts. Plus, their support was almost non-existent. Moving hosts was an easy decision. :D I wish I could have that forum back though. I wish I knew what I was doing back then and held onto it.

It was a Club Penguin fan forum run on Forumotion. I was quite young so I ended up taking graphics from someone else's forum LMAO

If it makes you feel better I had a forum after my middle name and birth year.

Hey, be fair buddy. It was one of my first ever general discussion forum and I couldn't think of a name at the time so that's what I wound up using for the sites name.

I remember Marie 1988! As for my first forum, it's this one:
http://pkmnmod.forumotion.com/forum
Back when it first opened there was a custom made banner that one of my friends from the Sonic community made for us, and the theme was better IMO. I must have changed it randomly back in 2014, but the forum opened in 2009. My cousin, friend and girlfriend were staff on the forum. xD
