So I just spent 5 minutes search the website, some of this I already knew and just looking for links, other bit's I didn't.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you can see the copyright is from 2001 till 2018, this might not be an accurate timeline of how long this forum has been around, however, I believe it is how long the LLC has been around. MediaGroup1 is owned by SkyHawk, who I believe owns this website.

So first place, About Page Scroll down to the bottom and there are some images of what the website used to look like in previous versions, along with showing who is in which group, aprat from Moderators, Admin and WebMaster.

These can be found here, which under the WebMaster group you see SkyHawk, who is noted as the founder of the website and owns it's parent company MediaGroup1.

So as per your questions, History -> About page has some images on what the website used to look like
Bossman -> SkyHawk
When did the website get built -> no idea but MediaGroup1 has been copyrighted since 2001 so most likely the first version was around then.

Everything that maceysoftware has pointed out is spot on, & worded way better than I could have put it :P

For further interest: In 2012 Skaggles & myself ran a YouTube Channel called Weekly DIC, in which we interviewed some of the (then) who's who of the forums.

You interviewing members is scary.

Skaggles did the talking. There was only one episode that he didn't run the main content. It was mostly me giggling to comments on irc, & wasn't processed onto YouTube.
