There was an XDA in 2008? Wow! So the developer community is as old as Android itself!

The oldest xda members (not by age but by membership) I personally know and who are still active today are:
- MikeChannon (join date June 7th 1972 is like a joke, not sure of the real join date, maybe Sept 2006?)
- the_scotsman (join date: January 30th 2006)
- malybru (join date: August 17th 2006)

The founder of xda is Peter Poelman (join date: January 19th 2003 but he's inactive since 2010)

@MikeChannon has been a member since June 7, 1972! That was when Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney co-founded Atari, Inc. Exciting times for XDA...

I remember rudegar and peterpoleman were the oldest members from 2003 XDA original gang.
Not sure if they still active nowadays
Rudegar was last last on XDA nearly 10 years ago. And peterpoleman can't be found; maybe GDPR compliantly deleted?

While researching this it has been a very interesting walk down memory lane. Like this post from Feb 2003:
Hi

I bought a 128mb Secure Digital Card from Expansys but when I put it
into my device the Memory on Storage Card says 118.75mb so
where's 9.25mb gone!!!!!

TIA
Charles
Ironically we have the same concern 2 decades later but about a multitude of gigabytes instead of 128 megabytes 😄 (possibly 128TB soon?)

If someone had posted back then we would be able to fit a TERAbyte (8.000 times the capacity on the same sized card) in the future, they would've declared them nuts.
