Congratulations on that! You've built a wonderful site and I'm happy I was able to find it early on. I look forward to this place being put "on the map"!

How come a 10-year-old thread only has 4 posts? (now 5)

MichaelinIowa definitely wins the prize for digging up and posting to the most dead thread ever revived in BFs.

Hehe... Not quite, but I've wondered what the first post was, too.

The URL for the opening post is
Code:
http://www.bikeforums.net/showpost.php?p=1445&postcount=1
-- so it looks like it's the 1,445th post. MichaelinIowa's zombie revival post is
Code:
http://www.bikeforums.net/showpost.php?p=10025537&postcount=3
which would be the 10,025,537th post.

Addendum to my previous post --

Entering a URL of
Code:
http://www.bikeforums.net/showpost.php?p=1
came up with nothing. Using different numbers and "showthread" instead of "showpost" is also hit-or-miss.

So, what's the oldest post on BF?

Both these threads:
Heya, where is everyone from?
BikeForums.Com gets a new look.
were started on Oct. 28, 1999 just a few minutes from each other.

And the thread we're in now:
WooHoo! Were in YAHOO!

I don't think I'll figure out how those numbers are assigned any time soon.
I thought bikeforums archaeology would be more fun...

I really liked Bikepacker67's comment in that thread.

A first post, and your join date is nearly 9 years ago?

Seemed reasonable to me since the OPs post was nearly 9 years before, as well.
