Question The history of maXBimmer?



How did maXBimmer come about?
Who owns it?
Who built the site?
When was it first online?
Who were the "founding members"?

What is the history of maXBimmer?

3) I ordered a few people around for a couple of months
4) Bout a year and couple of months ago

You only wish eh Johnny? LOL!




BLISS owns the site, invented it, pays for it and updates it. If you want to see the "founding" members, do a search on members joined by date.... page 51 is the beginning. Bliss opened the site on Dec 7th '01, I joined 5 days later after he told me it was up (I've known BLISS long before this site).

Yeah Im joking. I joined about a few days before Randy and Gamite. Bliss personally came by to tell me about the site and said it would need a smart ass "gino" who replies to every thread to run perfectly. I thought it was a good idea

I met Bliss on another forum. After showing him my 1st generation of videos...such as Teutonic's trip to Shannonville and Importfest2001, he was impressed and later told me about maXbimmer in which, if i can remember, the forums were about to be up and running.
