I had a question, and I'm, of course, looking for an answer.

 

The question is: What was BZPower's very first topic? Archives only chronicle to a certain point I believe, so I was wondering what was before that.

 

Now, can someone supply the answer? :P

 

Thanks!

I don't think anyone could answer this question. :P  But if anyone could, it would be Dimensioneer. He created BZP, so he is the person most likely to know.

I would assume the rules. Otherwise BZP would have been pure chaos.

 

But yeah, I would say the rules. As for the first "user created" topic I have no idea. *Shrug*

Well, aside from a Rules topic, of course. lol

 

Also, good point on Dimensioneer being, most likely, the person to accurately answer the question.

I assume the first topic on BZPower would have been something celebrating the fusion of Kanohi-Power.com and BZCommunity.com, which lead to the creation of this site.

The archives don't seem to have anything in them, as far as I can tell. Every topic comes up empty, even the most recent ones.

That's because of some kind of an error with the archives that HAZMAT explained to me, but I can't really remember what exactly it was. :lol:

Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

The error returned was:

Sorry, the link that brought you to this page seems to be out of date or broken.

 
Hmph. *continues pressing buttons* The first one that is readable seems to be topic 193, right here :P
 
The rules topic is not it. That's topic 29771. :P 
 
My theory is that the first 192 topics were ported over from BZCommunity and are thus lost, but we need Dimensioneer to confirm it.

Even on the early merged forums (it was merged already when I joined, so I wouldn't know before that), most of the older topics had glitches and couldn't be read properly. Many posts were out of order and the like. So unless someone was around to see it at the time there is probably no way to know.

 

I'm going to guess that it was about Bionicle. :P

Good grief, how are those archived pages still viewable?! They're supposed to be permanently lost, aren't they?

Looks like only some topics are gone.

 

I couldn't access 194, or 195. But 196 I managed to find.

 

Maybe if T-Hybrid comes back again we might know?

Thanks for all your input, guys! I can kinda see this turning into some legend of sorts, which will be fun if it happens. But then what bones said asks another question: What was the first topic on "Pre-BZP" (or before the merge that created BZP)? It's very unlikely we'll ever really know that one, though.

After sifting through hundreds of numbers, the earliest topic I've found so far is 456, from July/August, 2001. Probably not the very first topic, but surely one of the earliest.

Probably not. A dedicated rules topic might have come after.

Well, that's quite old.

 

It's actually older than BZPower - that was made about a year before Kanohi-Power and BZCommunity were merged.

That's odd, then. Do those archives count topics before the merger?

 

However, it's very close to when BZPower came to fruition, I believe.

Maybe it does. They could have just kept all the topics from prior to the merger when BZPower was formed.

Well, there are quite a few other topics from late '01 and early '02 (before the merger) still available. This is the only topic from summer '01 that I've seen so far, though.

 

Another thing to note is that the oldest posts in it are from 29th July. Given that BZCommunity was created on 20th July, this topic was posted within the first nine days of the site's existence.

I think we may have the answer, or at least the oldest topic we can possibly find at the moment. Anyway we could find ones that are even closer to the launch of BZCommunity? Nine days after launch seems somewhat early, though...

There are thousands and thousands of different topics; searching through them all would be practically impossible. It was just a stroke of luck that one of the oldest happened to be in the first five hundred or so that I looked through.
