Re: Bit of fun, what was your 1st ever post?

I've been here so long that my first post doesn't appear in my stats. Not sure what happened to those long-ago posts.

how do you find your first post?
I always hit the 500limit when doing advanced search.....can't believe I posted so much BS in such a short time.
Good question.

  • Go to Advanced Search.
  • Enter your user name where indicated ("Search by User Name"). In the drop-down menu under the user name box, select "Find Posts by User".
  • Under "Search Options", select "Last Posting Date", then next to that, "Ascending Order", and under that, click the radio button for "Show Results as Posts"
  • And off you go.

Cor. Complicated! But it works, kinda.

Oh yeah, and my first post wasn't an introduction ...

Almost the first! But:

The very first post on EF -- by mark, the founder, of course. It's from 8 May 2005, so the forum just celebrated (or didn't -- did anyone know?) its 6th birthday.

You're doing something wrong, there.

Aaaah, I see what you mean. Yes, the reply to the first post was indeed nearly two years later. Mark's second post was this one.

This appears to be the first post by a member. It was about an hour and a half after Mark's inaugral post.

Re: Bit of fun, what was your 1st ever post?

My first post was over 5 years ago: Stay or go?

I never posted an introduction either even though that was the first part of the forum I was given to moderate .
