Default What is your first thread or post?

I was just browsing SM older threads as usual, and suddenly asked myself "how did I chance upon this site and what is my first post?"

Kind of funny when I read back my own first "newbie" posts, here's my first input to this site after lurking for some time.

http://www.statuemarvels.com/showthread.php?t=20347

I was frantically looking for a classic Bowen Cap then, and eventually bought one from AdamWarlock87.

Oh, might as well throw in post no 2. Weapon X was bought from Midtown Comics.

What's yours?

How are you getting that far back into your posts list?
I joined SM in April of 2009, but I can only access the last 20 pages of posts, with the oldest viewable just last year.

Like may others, I was a lurker for awhile. I remember starting the hobby but then leaving for awhile and when I posted here marked my return to collecting statues.

That post was May of 2012. Crazy.

Think Al and team did a clean up on old posts once. I cannot find my first post, but able to do so for threads since I didn't start that many. But I remember that particular thread is my first post at the same time.

I think once the membership got to a certain point, Al or Gene culled all of the older posts & threads except for most recent 500 posts (20 pages) for each member.
I don't even have to see my first post from April 2009 to know what it contained. It was undoubtedly a message of gratitude to HoldYourFireAl for starting this forum after enduring flaming and ridicule at that "other place" for months whenever I'd take exception to the hateful crap they'd post about RB or when I'd post in agreement with Al when he did the same. If nothing else, Al's mentions of starting his own forum allowed me to follow him here and discover a much healthier and optimistic attitude about this hobby and the people who were responsible through their art and talent for creating the hobby in the first place. Turns out that like so many other "refugees" who followed, being "banned for life" from that hellhole of criticism was the best thing to ever happen to me as far as this statue collecting hobby is concerned. When RB eventually followed suit it was just confirmation that Al really had something special here.
Now pushing 12,000 posts, it would really be fun to read some of those first posts & threads from 8 years ago when SM was young, but I'm sure the first dozen or so were undoubtedly ones of relief and thankfulness that there was a kinder and gentler place to pursue my interest in Randy Bowen and his amazing work.
Thankfully things have apparently changed for the better at that "other place" since Al and I left and there seems to be much less of what drove us away these days. I'm glad that they finally realized they had a problem with personal attacks, because there were always quite a few good long-time members who never involved themselves in the pig piles. I know that many members of SM also hold "dual citizenship" there as well, so hopefully they've put that onerous period in their history, when a few of the mods were completely out of control and banning anything that moved, to rest for good.

Well, my first post ever was probably a comment on someone's collection. I was a lurker for about a year and decided to break my " no social media" rule. Glad I did, this is a pretty positive place like True said. Just wish there was more activity, kind of dead here now.
