I feel that by joining the group I'd be differentiating myself from the rest as one of the first people who really supported and believed in the project every step of the way before things really took off.
My activity however, was limited to checking for new blog posts religiously on a near daily basis and reading up on super long threads at least until the forums got revamped; then it just became the former, although I'm finding that I do the latter more than ever.
In truth it seems I'm more concerned about making it something of a status symbol rather than joining for what it truly is.
You know, the more I think about it, the more I feel I'm less "Old Guard" and more just, "Old"...
So with that I guess "No. I probably shouldn't be.".
P.S. thank you very much! I only recently joined the new forums as my profile suggests but I was a member of the old forums back in either 07 or 09 which I'm still unsure of but at least by 09.
