Hey everyone,

Do you remember the time where there were no MJ forums, just the looooooooooooooong MJIFC Digest emails?

Do you remember the MJIFC Chatroom?

To make a long story short: are there any of you who used to be members of Michael's biggest online fanclub; the MJIFC (Michael Jackson Internet Fanclub)?

If you were a member, please post here and state your MJIFC Chatroom nickname. I would love to see how many of you are here!! :)

I'll start:

I was a member, and my nicknames in the chatroom were "MJs Feet" and later I was "Dutchie".

Anyone else?

I used Janena, Guinan and african woman most of the times...

I am still in touch with some of the people from back then, those were the times *sigh*...
I actually met a lot of the chatters in 1999 during Mj and frinds as well, great memories :).

I have a march-2008 topic running here about the MJIFC, that brings back great memories as well:

Yeah, I remember that place, it was awesome. The "chat" was really basic, as the Internet was still relatively young when it appeared; in retrospect it was probably more like a message board w/ posting comments and then hitting refresh to see the new posts lol! I really missed that place and communicating w/ fans, so eventually I returned here; in the mid-term I had used AOL's MJ Chatroom, and then mostly stopped using the Internet until I came back here.

I liked the 'real time' of the MJIFC chat over message boards, and everywhere after, it seemed except AOL went to message board; I did find a few MJ chats after the MJIFC, but they were always empty. Nowadays chat is so seldom used, I'm more comfortable w/ message board lol.

Man, thinking back, I really miss those days. When I 1st started using it, MJ was on the HIStory tour and just released BotDF, and the last few singles from HIStory were SIM, Earth Song (not in the US), TDCAU, and HIStory (not in the US); it really frustrated me that those great songs weren't either released in the US or didn't chart higher. I'm not even a fan of remixes, but I'd buy every version of every single, even the imports. Then I remember speculating w/ fans when/if Smile and This Time Around would be released, and then they just ultimately 'leaked' out or something as extremely collectible singles. . . . At the time I was disappointed and frustrated that the public didn't recognize the genius of work like SIM, the new songs from BotDF, Ghosts, but WOW, what an awesome era to be an MJ fan and part of a fan community!

I was a big insomniac, so that place kept me entertained for a lot of sleepless nights. Fun times! Long live the MJIFC! Food fights forever!

Wow, I remember. I loved that chat, it was always busy. I think my name was just Linda, not sure. Also MJ EZboards (or something) was such a cool place to hang out.

We should create a chat where we,the good and old MJIFC could reunite.
Back than it was all so different...so good...I miss those times so much...
spread the word to all the fans that used to be in the MJIFC,so this can work.

I was toenail. I practically lived in there morning, noon & night from August-November 2001. I used to chat to Gemzee, HighPostLady, MattyJam, Everychild, loads of people.

The foodfights were the best! I actually cried with laughter!

DrDreFSure was probably my least favourite member!

In eternal paradise with Michael
I totally remember that site. Especially since it was one of the very first MJ sites that I join. I don't remember my username though. But it might have been Kingofhearts829. Since that was like one of the first usernames that I had ever used. Only my photobucket account is where I still used that username. The chat room I don't know if I remember ever using that or not. But I do remember there was like a huge list of MJ sites to go in to at the time. And I remember of always having trouble of trying to decide what MJ site to go in to first.

Yes I was a member on MJIFC... and during some terrifying circumstances, please read my topic about it ( http://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/threads/125391-Opening-my-heart!-(PLEASE-READ) )I used to have like 10-20 different names on there but the most memorable names had to be CindyMJJ, PrincessMichael, VivaDiva and Labomba... just as when the chat was about to close down I only used CindyJ I think.... *shakes head and sighs*

It bugs me that I can't remember my old usernames..

Yeah I'm in the same boat, I was on there ALL THE TIME lol, can't remember my user name though.... Goodness, this must've been around 1998? 1999???? For me at least lol, my first teenage forays into the internet were MJ-related, go figure lol. :heart:

Fluttering with Michael's playful spirit at Neverl
Is this the same Fan club that was run by Brian? I thought it was called the Michael Jackson Internet Fan club or Michael Jackson international fan club? I'm so confused to be honest. It was so many moons ago. I was apart of a group of ladies called MJsBunnies. I do hope I'm in the right place. =)

I was a member at MJIFC, but I was a member for 7 months and I left there last year for my friend's sake and never went back there ever again.

This is not possible, you must be talking about a different fanclub. MJIFC was unfortunately terminated in 2000.

Dutchie, I think it was revived and then closed down again....

I'd joined it again too about a year or so ago when I was in a nostalgic frenzy lol. I didn't care for the interface of the site, seemed kinda chaotic; not to mention it made my laptop run really slow. I eventually stopped going in there altogether. :unsure:
