Default Query: First item ever offered on JumbleTown?

Just sitting here going through all the post and was wondering what was offered on the very first thread that a JT'er put up and how many have been put up since Jumbletown has started. As you can tell I am very busy in work at the moment............

Hi arancrois & Kate44,

Not counting a few "test-members" -- co-workers, family and friends -- who made test-posts and pretended to be interested in each other's items, the first "real" Member to join (we were still in testing-mode though "live" on the Net) in March 2006 was... annetoner. She posted a coal-bunker, which wasn't taken for a few weeks. If memory serves me right, the first item to be passed on was a very nice couch in Limerick. I'm not sure who the Member was as the ad was later deleted (we didn't have an Admin Archive for the first few weeks of the site's operation). The current Archive indicates that almost 40,000 ads/threads have been posted, some of which may have had multiple items on them.

Hope that satisfies your curiosity!

Thanks for supporting JumbleTown.

Regards

I'd say the guys don't get involved - they're probably not allowed to by the rules or something. It must be a killer if you did see something you really wanted on it though. I'd be useless - be breaking rules all over the place!!

Hi kilk,

In short, Admin Gives but does not Take. Our User Names? Now, that would be telling... :)

Hi summersun,

I believe the code for avatars (picture icons, as you say) was stripped out by the puritanical developers of JumbleTown.

We have no plans to introduce/allow avatars, signatures, smilies etc. on the public forum. Sorry about that!
