Are there different generations on DDO among the users? And if so, how do you define the different generations and which members fall in where?

For me, the 1st Gen are those that where here before the forums where. The birth of the forums marks the start of the 2nd Gen, and the 3rd Gen was when the voting tab became public.

And while I joined a few weeks before the voting tab openned, I would still call myself 3rd Gen, since that is when I really blossomed (wow, that sounds gay).

I've definitely seen what appear to have been different generations come and go over the years.

It's hard to say where one starts and the other begins though. You could set some random standard like the change over every 6 months.

True. He's in the famous picture. He's one of the few of us who actually has any publicity.

He was interviewed for the pepper spray incident. He was one of those who faced the full brunt of the pepper spray during Occupy movement.

I think there are different generations though no one is in the same "generation" as me. They have all been here before me or after (except LDF who I think joined on roughly the same day). As for the oldest bygone character, I'd say between LDF, Partam, bluesteel, thett3, quarterexchange, rockylightnighting.

?? Phil, duh. The oldest current member is Roy or Rags (I can never remember which one, pretty sure it is Roy though). He is one of the first 100 members.

Tens of thousands of people later and he's at number one. That's pretty funny.

I still remember when I first joined (just a few days before FREEDO, we're like DDO brothers), Mongoose and theLwerd (points for those that remember the original usernames) were fighting like always and I, like a fool, decided to jump into the middle of it when only a few weeks old and had no real idea of the history.

Good times, the Mongoose/geese bros, that was after the CWO and Cleaners, but still, with the opening of the voting tab, all that laundry being aired out. good times.

I guess one question would be should ask, should "generations" be based on key "DDC/DDO" events, or based on the timeline of the current membership?

I read those thread. It was quite fun reading through them. Voting for terrible in those days, with people voting for themselves. The most hilarious ones were the people who would have the balls to write an RFD for why they won.

How did he even get any votes in the first place?

I wonder if he created this website just to air his opinions on whether they should send their kids to pre-school and lost spectacularly.

Oddly enough, I have not yet read DDC's very first debate.

Yeah... I looked at a couple of his votes when I noticed that... he didn't seem to be a very good voter in the few votes I checked out...

haha I'm gona have to do a more thorough review of his voting habits before we can decide whether disciplinary action is required... banning Phil from DDO or taking away his voting privileges might cause the universe to implode, so I'm gona tread carefully on this one.

I did the exact same thing a few weeks in with a feud between Kleptin and DATCMOTO. Now they're both gone and I'm here, so I was clearly right and they can suck it.

So I think we can agree that Phil was 1st gen, any other ideas on any of this? Or do we just want to reminisce over the "good ol' days"

It's a cool idea to break this down, but after your first 3 generations I don't know any other site update milestone things to point to...

Maybe the addition of the opinions section around 8-9 months ago? Maybe use prez terms... maybe just use 6 month blocks of time...

Other than that I don't know what else to use...

I joined about 2 years ago and I'm certainly not 3rd generation... maybe 4th? 5th? who knows...

I guess we should just reminisce about the good ol' days...

The only others I can really think of is when Juggle took over from Phil and the Presidential change (from Innoman to you).
