It was started years ago by founder Petrie in 2003 currently has over 1000 registered members. It is ad-free, and hosted by one of its own admins. Users donate money to keep the forum running.
It is also known for its massive amounts of various fanart and fanfictions, as well as many roleplays that are Land Before Time and non-Land Before Time related.

It started all the way back in 2001, user Petrie wanted to create a forum about dinosaurs, particularly Dinotopia. The site no longer exists.
In 2002, Petrie got into paid web-hosting so he made a site called treestars.net. It had a Jurassic Park section, but was mostly for Land Before Time. It was visioned to be a fan site for art and such. He also opened the Dinotopia forum, and it was successful throughout the year.

The Photobucket Obliterators group consisted of four members who were commissioned by the Administrators in 2018 to fix the broken image links caused by Photobucket no longer allowing free users to hotlink images.The group was dissolved later that year when the forum switched to being self-hosted, but two of these members became Moderators.
- The forum itself is older than some members.
- On May 22, 2017, a new record on the forum was broken for most users online at one time. There were 362 users online at the time, including guests and bots of course.
- It is the most popular Land Before Time forum, but it is not the first; but the second. The first was the Network54 Land Before Time forum.
