Your longest running internet accounts?


#1

Hey, this may sound like a geek topic. But I wanted to know what are some of the longest times you held a single internet account?

I think the longest one I’ve held is probably yahoo mail (since 1998) and ProgrammersHeaven.com (1999). Before then I didn’t really create accounts.

I think SRK and VFDC are the second longest running, I’ve been on both since 2004 (8 years). How long have you’ve guys held on to internet accounts?


#2

Easily this one. Would’ve been Geocities if it (and years and years of photos) didn’t go offline.


#3

probably yahoo mail that I registered in 2002. some other accounts I registered back then like ICQ but my yahoo mail is the only one I ever use frequently


#4

My hotmail account, Gamespy account and Diablo 2 accounts in that order I think.


#5

[LEFT]SRK: 2012 Kappa.[/LEFT]


#6

My GGPO account.


#7

i think probably my current email account which i have had about 14 years


#8

Neopets. No homo


#9

Gmail - 2004. I switched email accounts so much it wasn’t even funny until I got Gmail.
FCP - 2005. Even though this place is almost dead, I still log on.
Would’ve been ICQ but I was getting stalked by some blind guy in Wisconsin because I made some sound theme he liked. I wish I was making this ish up.

Besides, who uses ICQ anymore anyway?


#10

Primary Yahoo email, still in use - 1999

Hotmail, mostly spam but I still use it for things I don’t want cluttering up my other inboxes (groupon etc)- about 1997


#11

SRK by a mile.


#12

thats what I thought. I only got one when I played Ultima Online cause everyone who played used ICQ to communicate (this was in 2001 or 2002)

years went by and I checked the game out again like 2 years ago and those guys are STILL using ICQ lol


#13

Technically, my Yahoo! Mail account, but unfortunity, I can’t log into it anymore.

Basically, during my time on the Yahoo! Club scene, I got into a hacking war with an asshole from another club. I was able to delete all his Clubs and did some pretty nasty things when I got into his e-mail account (specifically with his contacts). But due to a bushleague error on my part, he got into my Yahoo! Mail account and erased all trace of it ever being my account. Not only can I not log in, but, according to Yahoo, it isn’t even my account.

I’m over it, though. New account, new approach.

#17

probably this one, then smogon (2007)

Unless gamefaqs have deleted my account, then probably that one. Otherwise it’s SRK with Tekken Zaibatsu a close second
