I just saw the Word Association thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=86033), which was started November 4th, 2005 and is still very active with 1206 pages as of this posting and the most recent post shortly before I started this thread. I was just wondering if this is the oldest active thread, or if it isn't what one is?

I'm betting Thread Rules and Guidelines (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1&highlight=ubuntu) is the oldest thread. Either that or Welcome to Ubuntuforums.org (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2).

Both are dated October 9, 2004.

P.S. I've moved this to the forums subforum.

I guess it depends on how you define active. If you mean that it shows up in the first ten pages of new posts, that shouldn't be too hard to find.

I was going by the thread not being closed.

I guess the definition of active is a little hazy. I was simply impressed by the longevity and activity of the word association thread, and was wondering if there was a older thread with similar levels of activity.

I'm now on a quest to see who claims the honor of posting the first question on the forums not on the mailing list. So far I have looked at the first 70 threads, and except for 4 threads by ubuntu-geek, all have been posts to the mailing list.

I'm pretty sure he means threads that are still being posted in within the past couple days.

To quote myself:

Success, it looks like the honor goes to thread 94, a howto written by disposable. (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=94) So now all I have to do is make a post there, and I will have answered my own question!!!
