At the bottom of the forum front page it says, "MBN Birthday" which I assumed meant the birthday of the MBN's creation, but for some reason when you click it, Kobold's name is there, who doesn't even have his birthday in this month!

Explain? Please?

That's because I was the one to set up the event.
Everyone can add them in the private calendar.

the actual MBN birthday is somewhat unknown ... but I guess we should use 2000-10-09 as the official birth of the MBN (is the date the first few users signed up). So in 4 days the MBN will be 6 years old.

6 years old. Horray, MBN goes to school. What will it learn?

I recall there used to be a beta MBN site. It went up sometime when the LBA Death Match Mod was in progress.

We first used a forum driven by other software, this was during the transition phase from InsideTheWeb

Really? Maybe I'm imagining things... Wasn't this forum made in 2000?

So there was no MBN before this one?

What are you talking about? The MBN was created on October 2000, and the original style was grey. At around October 2002 the brown style was created, and a short time after that it was made default.

Then in December 2003 we upgraded to VB3, and had no brown style at all until El created the new one a few months ago.

But this forum here (VB3?) is a different one than the old two, so how come El's join date is still 2000?

This is what I don't understand, I'm sure it's very simple, I'm just a moron.

You can keep the same database while upgrading the software used to read/write to it.
