We're now about 16.5 years old as of this post. I first launched the site in March of 2000.
So, a bit of history, if you're interested in knowing more...
At first, it was only a way for me to post pictures and my own experiences with my beardies. I was on a couple other forums (Yahoo Groups) at the time, but wished there were more pictures and articles. So, I wrote what I felt I could speak to as someone very new to beardies. I wrote about how to sex your bearded dragon, about the basic behaviors, etc. Then I added polls for visitors to chime in on their thoughts. Then someone suggested I add forums. At first, I was trying to research and answer anyone's questions. Then we had enough regular visitors that they were helping too.
Back then, the website was running off of an old computer I had and over a DSL modem line. I believe it was around 2004 that I moved the site to a hosted service. And year after year we grew until I had to have a dedicated server for the site (upgraded 1-2 times too). And at the beginning of this year, I switched over to Amazon cloud, as our traffic has been a bit less, but still more than enough to need a dedicated environment. The latest change will give flexibility to adjust server power and cost as we grow or shrink.
I think the forums started in 2001 or so. Our peak in visitors and activity on the community was probably around 2007-2008, before Social Media sites stole everyone's online time and people shifted away from forum communities a bit. But even today, we're still one of the most active sites focused on bearded dragon discussions. We lost our higher Google ranking for some reason (sadly a site that was using other people's content somehow got in the upper top spots where we were), but we're usually in the top 10 on Google searches for "bearded dragon". I haven't had the time to work on fresh and regular content, unfortunately, which is the best way to improve our Google ranking.
Hope that was what you were looking for.
Oh, and the WayBack Machine (a web archiving project) started recording the site in December of 2000... so you can see what it looked like WAAAY back then...
And to browse it over other times...
