The other day there were postings about the first Kudoz question (actually numbered 2), the 100th, 1000th and so on. Today I was curious and tried to get at the first topic. Numbers 1,50, 80 drew a blank. The earliest I could get was vide http://www.proz.com/topic/83. Is there anything earlier than this? Which thread got the maximum replies? I have the dubious distinction of posting a topic with zero replies.

Well, maybe not the earliest, but quite close. I remember this one as if I replied only yesterday

and this one is even older:

Thanks Narasimhan for bringing the question Sep 7, 2003

and Evert for giving the link.

I have discovered many interesting things, for instance

- the favorite recurrent subject since the forums exist is...guess what? KudoZ questions and points, of course!

- another subject that has always filled the forum pages is...bugs

- I didn't know that peergrading had been anonymous.

- I discovered that forums had not existed for long when I joined

- Many topics don't exist any more (I wonder why, there are empty pages)

- I could see that it was Mary's idea to create a "neutral" option for KudoZ (thanks Mary)

- It seems that they are not in chronological order

- I have failed to find my first post

And one other comment, Nasimhan. You're not alone having "the dubious distinction of posting a topic with zero replies". It's amazing to see how many people never got an answer. I imagine that it's because there were less members, because even if it happens from time to time now, it doesn't happen too often.
