Before Anandtech.com & Anand's Geocities page existed, when Anand was just posting messages on a Usenet motherboards group.

I joined in 1998 or 1999 originally, left, and came back with this username because I couldn't remember the old one(s)

I actually joined in 97. Due to a FUBAR with my account my join date was altered.
Yeah, I joined in 1998, and Red was already a famous and established member.

Originally joined in like 97 or 98, but the fusetalk "upgrade" changed that.
Not exactly the case. The "upgrade" to fusetalk had already been in effect for months and months prior to the database crash on Oct 9, 1999, following which everyone had to re-register.

That's why the earliest join date you used to see under Fusetalk was Oct 9, 1999, and under vB is the even less specific Oct 1999.
