This forum started by Peter Maas as the The Mongolian Gerbil Website Forum in January 2003. A forum for all visitors of The Mongolian Gerbil Website. A place where they can discuss every gerbil related topic. Share experiences and help each other with questions. Sadly enough this forum was deleted by Proboards (the forum provider), because it also contained Dutch-language content. This was prohibited according the terms of service of Proboards. At the end it had almost 150 members.
On January 23rd, 2004, a new forum for The Mongolian Gerbil Website had been created: The Gerbil Forum. This forum grew fast to almost 300 members in December 2004. In December 2005 there were almost 800 members. In August 2006 already almost 1200, and in August 2007 there were almost 1800 members, 9200 topics and 91000 posts.
In August 2007, Peter decided to hand over the forum to someone else, due to a lack of time to manage the forum properly.
On September 24th, 2007, it was announced that RitzieAnn (Kristi) would became the new administrator and forum owner. The hand-over became final at October 9th 2007.
