      I joined because of PIPS (plugin Profits)

      I think it was around 2003 when I joined. I am ancient in Internet years.

      Back then you had to pay for access. THe first money I ever made online was from Allen also. A commission check from Host 4 Profit

      Same here. And I paid for that because I heard there was an autoresponder script (which were not as common as today) and I wanted it

      The forum was a nice surprise. This was 2000 or so.

    I got fed up with keep seeing it for all my searches I was doing and joined to see what all the fuss about.
    At the same time I joined W****f*re, but I couldn't understand what the hell they were talking about on there, it was like some sort of different English,
    so I stayed here where people talk proper, like what I do

    I'm just here for the ladies.


    Oh. You're serious. Well, I really don't remember. What I do remember is that when I tried to sign up I found out I was already a member. I found that very strange because I usually have an excellent memory, except when I don't, which is often.

      Originally, I checked it out to find out what the spam I was getting for it was about. (Affiliates, as it turned out. Yes, there was an affiliate program back for the forum then.)

      I joined after I got a recommendation from someone whose list I had actually signed up for. I forget who that was, at this point. Jim Daniels or Terry Dean, I think. That was in 1997. I believe Kim W was here already, as were Bryan Kumar, Kenneth Tang, and a bunch of other folks who are still around.

        My son told me about it in 2009, I think. We both joined, and a few years later, I think I stumbled across a post on Google from here. I decided to do some reading in the offline section, and got hooked.

        I stay on the Offline section to learn and teach. I come to the Off topic section because it's fun. There are quite a few interesting people here.

          Am I the only one who finds it appropriate that you prefer the 'off' sections?

    I joined because it came with membership in Plug-In Profit Site. I always say I would never have survived the first year online without the forum. I loved the idea of 'working at home alone' - until I got lost in some maze of information, and then I came here whining and always got help right away. That was close to 10 years ago and I never left.

    Nice little town...

  • I remember selling a book on Clickbank around 2000 and it bombed. I came here to learn how to market online and didn't know what they were talking about. What's an autoresponder? haha.

    I think I came in through PIPs, too - but didn't stay in that one more than a month or two. I'd only been online about a week when I got here and had to figure out how to make a post. The OT got my attention immediately because there were topics I could actually talk with people without drooling all over the keyboard. I still remember the first time I was able to post an IM related post without sounding like a complete moron and that was when some guys were talking about possibilities of putting out some marketing to China. I was able to be real clear about the difficulties they might find in translations and finding adequate translators. It was the first time I had any notion that I'd ever be able to find my way around the online maze outside of the nonsense thread. LOL.

    I was on a membership site forum and the WF kept coming up in various topics, so I decided to check it out. I said "what is this warrior forum that every is talking about"

      I came on the invitation of my brother who had just recently relocated to Missouri.

      Ha! I had never even heard the term "internet marketing" and wasn't so sure that I even wanted to participate in it at all. But because it was a way that I could communicate with my brother who appeared to be here 24/7 at the time, I entered in.

      Naturally it was via the "Off Topic Forum".

      Here I enjoyed fun, intelligent and witty banter with KimW and MYOB and Dave Patterson and Thom, and Kurt and well, the best of my buddies, Sal. When I first ventured to the Main Discussion forum to read up on what IM was all about, I was fortunate to meet Dennis Gaskill and John McCabe and Alexa and Ken Leatherman and many other awesome Warriors.

      Back down in the OT, I met Killer Joe/Bill Farnham, GT, Karen Blundell, R Hagel and bumped into Paul Myers in my Pink Rant thread where he offered me enough rope to hang myself with but I was wise with that rope and swung right into a friendship with him instead and even ended up liking some country music because of him. That was no small feat, mind you.

      Good times indeed. Anyway, I have never looked back and don't intend to any time soon.

    Found it through Google.


    I've been lurking around the forum since 2011

    and just recently joined a few weeks ago.


    Have made new contacts and gained more knowledge relating to IM.

    I had a deal go bad on EBay and the seller ,to make things right,offered me a copy of FreeToSell ebook that was put out by Tom Hua.
    There was a forum to join for that product.
    Once inside I met,and maybe Paul can help me with the name,it was long ago, but I believe her name is Teresa King, who was basically running the forum.
    She told me about The Secret Site,which as others have already mentioned,you had to pay for access. Once inside we also could joint the forum.
    The VBulletin version is one of several incarnations of the forum.
    As it is, My post count is frozen where it is because I very rarely go out of off topic.

      Kim,
      I believe her name is Teresa King
      Yep. She was one of the big influences on the forum back in the early days. Helped a lot of people to get started.

      She was the one who came up with the idea of special offers from Warriors to Warriors.
