Don't remember exactly when..if I still played on Live I'd have to check there to see my main's Birthdate. Pretty sure it was early 2000, I was 12 or 13 (I know it was a while before Kunark, if nothing else).
I rolled up my Human Ranger (In retrospect, I used my stat points terribly) on my older brother's account (such a scofflaw!). Had a heckuvva time even trying to get out of Surefall Glade by the light of "a candle" as my only lightsource.
Finally make it out, and I see the rolling Qeynos Hills before me. The start of a new adventure (The first sight of that place is something I wish I could experience was amazing!) I start wandering to explore this new land for the very first time. I go to my left to see what I can see. A vast land full of possibilities, a world of ancient ruins to explore, treasures to win, monsters to figh--

I picked up a copy of The Hobbit at the high school library. My brother in law (then my sister's boyfriend) told me if I liked the Hobbit I should try EQ, since it had halflings, trolls, dragons, etc. I picked it up shortly after Kunark came out, and played on Prexus. Of course, it took me forever to choose my first character, playing most of the classes for at least a level or two. I finally settled one a dark elf wizard (Ravenlok Von`Croft) in June of 2000. I remember really wanting to get into the storyline of my character, who I decided was banished from Neriak after killing a guard in self defense. I followed up by ruining my Neriak faction and building one up in Qeynos (handing in snake skins). I quit around level 32 or so (wasn't at all happy with PoP, which pretty much gave everyone the ability to port and just made the game too easy), but returned in 2006 after trying out an Iksar SK on the Test server. Got Xarsith up to level 65 before I stopped playing again in 2007. Love being back!

I would be interested in seeing when people stopped playing, if they did.

I started during classic - played into velious into velious and retired before luclin came out.

I first retired when POP came out but then came back for more until item loot left RZ entirely.
