How long has TeenHelp been around for? - November 27th 2009, 06:37 PM

Because I've noticed a few members saying they've been here for about three years. But when I look at the dates that most people have joined they all seem to say 2009 :confused: I'm just confused.

TeenHelp has been around since 1998. The Support Forums, which are what record registration dates, have been around since 2000. The current version of the Support Forums have been around since January of this year. The dates of most key TeenHelp events can be found here: http://www.teenhelp.org/history/

The site crashed in January and all the registration dates were reset, so only the dates for members joining after that are correct the rest of us just have to remember when we joined.

Hey there,

On July 13th,1998, TeenHelp was created by Branden Thomas. However, it wasn't until 2000 that the first support groups (forums) and chat room was launched. They have restarted after that, too.

As for join dates, TeenHelp suffered from a major data loss in December 2008 and it wasn't until January 5th 2009 that TeenHelp was restarted again, meaning that old members had to create a new account with a 2009 start-date and with a reset post-count.

You can find out more about TeenHelp's history [here].
I shall close this now to avoid repetition, however if you have any more questions or would like this re-opened then do feel free to PM me and I shall do that for you. You could also consider PMing a buddy if you have any TeenHelp-related questions.

Take care!
