XBoard has 99,209 members now, as I type. With over 500 new registrations happening every day, we are bound to cross the 100,000 members mark in a day or two. So, I decided to come up with a thread about the history of XBoard - Past, Present and Future of XB.

Past

So, how did it all start?

Credit must be given where it is due. www.masalatalk.com/masalaboard (or) MB (or) SBB as we call it is where it all started. Similar to the evolution of mankind, the formation of XB can be summed as:

B.O.A.T --> C.Cers --> ChitChatters.NET --> XBoard.US

I will try to keep the "Past" as short as possible, mainly to avoid unwanted controversies.

It was 2003 - Spamming, hijacking, leg-pulling didn't exist back then. All you could find in SBB those days was "Nice Pics bhai", "Please post it immeadiately", "Can I please have the shlipa shetty nipple slip video, thanks?"... Mind you, reps nor rapidshare existed back then.

Enter Bond0008, chakk_lo and mexicomeat (myself). These three people strongly believed that a forum should be a means of interacting with people, share info and most importantly have fun rather than usual "Thanks Bhai...". So, together these three amigos hijacked the "Scenes Before Censor Cuts" thread - the cradle for the B.O.A.T organization (Bumping Organisation for All Threads).

The rules of the organization was simple - There are no rules. Just post crap, make friends and make sure you support your friend's threads - That was BOAT's motto. Day by day, the organization grew - thats where I met Gautam, GreatOne and others...

Controversies surrounded B.O.A.T, B.O.A.T thread was closed and the word "BOAT" was banned at SBB. Slowly, the BOAT members merged themselves with the CCers and took over the ChitChat Forum at SBB. Again, there were controversies - fights between members and moderators... The members were looked down as trouble-makers and a healthy relationship didn't exist between members and moderators in SBB back then.

GodFather was a former member of the B.O.A.T organisation and then became an online friend of the chitchatters. He used to ask me every now and then about starting a new online forum for entertainment. I didn't have that much confidence in starting an online forum on our own, so I said no.

And then there was the O.T issue at SBB.



This was the original plan - but things didn't go as planned. Noobs started spamming OffTopic and as usual, I went overboard resulting in OffTopic members spamming MB (SBB) for 2 or 3 days.

After the O.T issue, CCers decided to boycott the ChitChat forum and GodFather asked me the question again "What do you think about starting a new online forum?". This time I didn't say no. I instead consulted with Gautam, who was very much interested in this.

I suggested that we should come up with a name that doesn't have the words "Spice" (or) "Desi" (or) "Masala". Gautam suggested "ChitChatters.NET" and I suggested the name for the admin "GodFather".

GodFather bought the webspace, installed phBB forum software on it and chitChatters.NET was born. Chakk_lo, Kambaqqt, GreatOne, Masjoey, sulerohan and other friends joined us the next day.

Things were going smoothly- we had only 10-15 members online during those time. Everyday, Kambaqqt, Gautam, GodFather , Chakk_lo, Great One, Messy and myself used to advertise ChitChatters.NET on yahoo chat rooms, other forums etc... and slowly built the members list.

Just imagine.. Kambaqqt, me, chakk, gautam and others joining yahoo chat rooms, making casual conversation with members there and slowly canvassing new members for ChitChatters.NET

Why? Why did we do this? Coz we wanted to build a Home on our own. Initially, chakk_lo didn't have much confidence with ChitChatters.NET, but when we crossed 1000 members in record time, chakk announced that "I have found my new home".

After that chakk_lo used to post porn videos in Pictures and Videos Section and more people started joining ChitChatters.NET.

My vision
When we started XBoard, I had a vision of how the board should be. My theory was:

* There shouldn't be any moderation, whatsoever.

* Since we came from the old school of ChitChatting, counter-attacking spam or abuse shouldn't be hard. In any case, no threads in ChitChatters should be closed, no post should be edited by mods, no one should be banned. (I still stick to this policy, and close/ban only during extreme circumstances).

We didn't have any moderators back then. Yeah, we did have a test moderator called "tester" though. And then durga joined the board. (Please dont ask me who durga is, I am not gonna tell you ).

And then we had the RRR issue. RohanRohanRohan tried to hack ChitChatters.NET- Enuff said about this, if you want to know about this , search for a locked thread opened by Durga.

And then we made ths switch from phpBB to vBulletin. We were waiting for three important friends to join us - MB_Gossip,Bond0008 and BeboLover. The first two did join ChitChatters.NET but didn't have much time to spend here. Those days, we used to wonder "What is taking BeboLover so long to join us?". The man joined us late, but tell you, he was terrific. He along with AJ and Messy brought a sensation to ChitChatters.NET. Indkish and lalchitiri joined us during this period, and they started to liven up the place. Indkish and Heynomi joined us during the same time - They along with jollygujju made teremendous contribution to the growth of chitChatters.NET

Some screenshots from Admin forum (good old days)...





Coming back to my vision about XBoard, as number of members increased, it was very clear that my principles of no-moderation wouldn't work. So, BeboLover and Indkish were roped in as mods. Later, jollygujju and Heynomi became mods too. Lalchitri was a good friend and well-wisher and was granted access to the admin forums and was chosen by default as the "next mod".

Now, Jollygujju was a highly respected member of amateurindianforums and he used to host his videos on eXBii.com. He brought in a lot of traffic to eXBii.com (Jolly's vadtal video, chakk's sanjana video and IK's reshma videos brought in a number of members to the board).

And then, we had spooler - our resident programmer. He revolutionised the board with his changes (example: donor page, torrents forum, desiproject.com, quotes on the index page).

At this point, GodFather was spending about $300 USD per month out of his pocket towards ChitChatters. So, we decided to do something that can generate some sort of revenue. I proposed the idea of starting a new regional site and getting some revenue via google ads. As usual, I became busy and that never happened . Chakk suggested that we should start a new site serving porn. So, me and chakk_lo started hotindiavideos.com with the intention of generating some revenue to GF. Chakk's idea of "Porn sells" did work but it didn't last very long. We did face some problem (which I dont wish to discuss here) which lead to the closure of hotindianvideos.com and renaming ChitChatters.NET to XBoard.US

Present

Traffic kept pouring in.. New champs like AuntAunt (AA joined us immaediately after the RRR episode),kalamirch,lc2k,kudla, gizem, bhaski,jamura, myla,BC,ydoucare, aditayk,nisar, Innocent, 2nitin2,[you] and others.. emerged and took the board to new heights.

With more than 1000 people online at the same time, we decided to get more mods. lalchitri and mylapore were made new mods for XBoard. Spooler became busy with his studies and I started doing some hacks and mods on XBoard. Those days, I used to wait for GodFather to come online and then request him "Can you install this?", "Can you change this?" etc..... One day he got fed up with my constant nagging and decided to make spooler and I as co-admins so that we can have access to the database and Admin Control Panel.

XBoard stands #486 in BigBoards ranking and has almost 100,000 members, 35,000 threads and almost 1,800,000 posts now. Wow! an amazing feet considering that we are only 15 months old.

I know I forgot to mention a lot here, but I expect stalwarts like AuntAunt,BC,GT and others to share their experiences.

Future

As someone said, Together we will make a difference. Sky is the limit

Regards
Mike
