    While we know that Realjock was the brainchild of Jeff (jeffinsf on RJ) in the spring of 2006, I wanted to know about the "first forum".... It was officially placed on January 3, 2007... on vitamins & supplements...... since there were much fewer members, responses were more limited.... the thread was started by Jeff.


    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/102

    of course, I'm curious if there was a "forum 101"..... if so, it was deleted.

    The development of Realjock was certainly a "one of a kind", such good information
    and a way that allowed so many of us, fitness enthusiasts, to communicate and discuss a whole host of issues. I know I've found it a valuable asset.

    So the forums began.....and the thousands of forums since....it would be interesting to hear from Jeff how RJ has developed. Did he envision this site to become what it has? We certainly appreciate the time and effort expended.....

    Well....that was an *ahem* distinctly un-colorful thread, compared to what we've got now. I didn't catch even the faintest whiff of an impending flame war. My my my my my...how on earth did you dig that thing up, Chris?

    You know, it's kinda cool taking a look at the ever-shifting dynamics of the RJ forums. I hardly recognized myself in my first post when I just found it out of sheer idle curiosity. All helpful and positive and warm and fuzzy and shit...not a trace of snark, pithiness, or ego anywhere to be seen...odd. icon_wink.gif

    I love history... the history of anything.. Did the history of my university and law schools when writing as a student. I wanted to know this.

    I got the information... and the thread is under the "vitamins & supplements" section right now.


    There could be a colorful history, however... forum 101 might have been a flame war... LOL

    Wow, that's actually pretty cool, Chris. It kinda made me nostalgic for more innocent days when flame wars were the exception rather than the norm. So I decided to dig up one of my earliest posts from that happier time when I was but a wee little RJer. This was way back in January of 2008, a simpler more peaceful time with only a faint aroma of smoke in the air as the subtle harbinger of the Great Flaming ahead. Note: UrsaMajor and I were in previous account incarnations at the time.

    jprichva saidIn the beginning, there were Fitness Articles.
    And RJ saw that it was good, and created Chat Rooms.
    The Chat Rooms were full of men talking about schlongs.
    And RJ saw that it was good.
    And then RJ created the Forums, and it was good.
    Adam and Steve were talking in the Forums,
    and one day a serpent wriggled down from the Flaming Tree.
    And the serpent said, Here is an apple. It is made of controversy. Won't you taste it?
    No, said Adam. RJ warned us not to.
    But Steve said, I want to talk about atheism, Republicans, feminine guys, the guys above me, and the hottest brand of underwear.
    And the serpent held out the apple, and Steve ate from it. Then he made Adam eat of the Apple as well.
    And RJ was sad, and cast them both out of Paradise, and said,
    By the sweat of thy fingers on the keyboard, so shalt thou argue and flame one another through eternity, for you have eat of the Apple of Flame, and you and all your fellow homos shall argue henceforward to the end of time.


    And there ya have it folks! icon_lol.gif

    Are you questioning my knowledge of "RJ history"??? Eh Cas? LOL


    Actually it was Chris who gave me the information, so if something is incorrect, he will have to clarify.
