    i think one thing you can say for sure is that the forum has never been as lively as now, so its been steady growing. i might be mistaken but quite a few of the original forum members are still around, but then again i dont read other peoples posts so i couldnt tell any damn way here check my website www.reactorstudios.com

    The site launched in 2001 as a forum for my D&B website "31seconds". The forum quickly took over the main site so I decided to drop 31seconds and concentrate my efforts on DnBForum. As the site grew the server and software costs started to rise so I asked Triple M if he wanted to become a 50/50 partner of the site, to which he said yes.

    During the past year it has really taken off, although it has certainly had it's up and down points during the last 7 years, this is definitely the busiest its ever been.

    We've teamed up with various labels over the past 7 years to bring you competitions, exclusives and adverts; these labels included Ram Records and Renegade Hardware to name a few.

    One of my biggest highlights was being nominated for "Best Forum" and "Best Website" a few years back in the Accelerated Culture awards, we came roughly 5th and 7th respectively (I think).

    That's about it, I've had a great time running this site (minus the server headaches)! You can check the links below for some links to what the site looked like during those years:

    2002 - http://web.archive.org/web/20020120081026/http://dnbforum.com/
    2003 - http://web.archive.org/web/20030203103551/http://www.dnbforum.com/
    2004 - http://web.archive.org/web/20040321075024/http://www.dnbforum.com/
    2006 - http://web.archive.org/web/20061108190652/http://www.dnbforum.com/

    Thanks for asking, it's always nice when someone cares enough to ask about it as I've devoted a lot of my time and energy to the it over the years!

    Massive repect is due to SDM & Triple M.
    I never knew this forum had been running for so long.
    My only gripe is I never found it sooner.
    Nice work guys.

    Well, "big ups" don't say it enough, sdm. This site's enriched my life, not just for all the sets n shit, but to hear from folks who share something big. I've said it on other threads, there's not many heads round here were I'm at to chat bout dnb.

    Peace
