Is there a historical list of Talkboard members? (and discussion of History thread)

Of year-by-year TalkBoard members (& positions)?

You can construct partial lists of who the TB candidates were in recent years by looking in the TB election debate archives.

There's usually a post by the CD, or earlier by Randy Petersen, announcing the results of the vote, but finding these requires some searching.

I'm happy to create a summary. There will be a short delay as I'm about to board a flight.

Since Dovster went to school with Moses, I would nominate him.

With all due respect & humility, one person asking for TB member got you to try & do a history? And most of your links go back to the same page. I don't get it.

Cheers.

I think this is a great idea. It's a lot of effort to weed backwards through the history and I applaud the effort to try to create a historical wiki.

I'm personally curious to learn more about the history of TalkBoard, and thought it useful to have this info in one place.

Obviously it is currently a work in progress.

I agree with you both. However, some of the information is already there in the TB voting archives.

But I think the majority of FTers could give two patooties. And while I applaud KF (and I do), I don't think he should spend his time on something like this but IB instead (of course since it's not related to ad clicks that will be in the never category).

Cheers.

This is a good idea and also applaud OP's effort, though cannot fathom the friction of this non-fiction thread.

I have worked with Kiwi Flyer in a number of capacities over the years; and when he sets his mind to tackle a project, he does so with aplomb.

This is yet another commendable effort on his part.

That's weird. I don't see any friction.

Cheers.

A brief history of Flyer Talk Talkboard is in progress (currently updated for 2001 to 2007).
