Oldest Mylot discussion you've ever replied to?

I've started looking out old discussions of TV re-runs, to see what MyLotters thought first time round. Right now I'm really into Scrubs (hell yeah). Only just got the last season in the UK, so without checking the post date I clicked on a discussion about JD leaving. Got fired with enthusiasm re one comment, so put my own input and hit send. There staring at me were the dates. Comment I'd replied to: Posted 5 years ago. My reply: Posted 5 seconds ago. Hah! But I wasn't the one who reignited this 60-month old topic. That was down to someone in Wales, who did the deed a month ago. Lady from the Dragon Country - I salute you! Is a reply to a 5-year old discussion a record? Or can you beat this?

I can't say I broke any record but I did reply to the first approved discussion since the sites inception. I only know which one it was because our old admin conveyed on how to get to it in a discussion. So it was interesting to see the huge difference on how the discussions were back then from now and I had to reply. lol

I had honestly never thought to go looking for Mylot discussion #1 since coming on here...the rest of them have been keeping me too busy since then! I should check it out..

I agree. Normally I just go to the scrolling "live" discussions along the top. But Scrubs seems to be really popular right now on UK TV ... well, at least on the Comedy channel ... that I somehow thought it must be BANG up to date everywhere else too. Once I saw it wasn't, I hit the archives just to see what others here thought about the series. Didn't realise just how deep I was trawling though.This one's got the little dangly bit with the fluorescent light and big teeth ... BTW - Hardworkinggurl, you deserve a MyLot medal!

Awwh not a medal, I love myLot and the wonderful great members you are all. I often forget and loose track of time and not realize how much I have done on here. Here is the first approved one, as the 1 & 2 were deleted, it is fun to see how it was back then and now http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/3.aspx

I respond to old discussions too. We still get paid for them right? I don't think its pointless to respond to old discussions because chances are someone will eventually see it.

I agree - it's just I normally don't bother, especially when I see the original poster hasn't contributed for 3 months. But Scrubs is special.

Well you can only go back so far, the site has only existed for so long. I've replied to quite a few old ones. For a while there, the 'no responses' tab was reversed, and it was showing up ordered oldest to newest, and I had a lot of fun responding to some really idiotic ones.

You've made me curious. I need to find the oldest discussion on this site. The one with cobwebs, typed on parchment.

A few months ago I was going through something that was almost keeping me away frommyLot and I didn't want to be a part of the recent topics so for a few days I stayed on the old ones. Istarted right back at the bginning by changing the number in my browser. The oldest topic I responded on was this one: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/4.aspx?p=4 It was the 4th topic to be posted here.

This is such a coincidence! When I responded there I was not really aware of what those 'scrubbing bubbles' really are/were and I have just discovered that the stuff I used to clean the bathroom yesterday, some sort of 'mousse' here, is exactly the same thing! Better late than never!

Hey, I'm really into Scrubs too! Jd and Turk's friendship is just magical. As for the oldest discussion I've ever replied to, the oldest discussion is from three years ago (can't top the record). The topics that I like to respond to is usually not too popular (like about banking policies, using the atm, going to university) and after responding to some discussions, I would run out of new discussions. Old discussions isn't bad but sometimes I wonder if the poster still uses mylot and it feels sad to think that the mylot user is gone.

That's the main reason I don't normally bother, cos I think - what's the point, they won't read this anyway. Which makes me wonder if anyone else will.

Great to meet another Scrubs fan. The lack of vignettes in the latest series is confusing. I'm thinking, "Wait, is this for real, or in her head?" I want JD back!!!

I know there's a couple of my discussions going back a couple or three Years at this stage that have picked up recent responses,and there's certainly older ones that I've responded to,also..not sure of what my personal record of an older discussion response would be,though..as long as it would still provoke a response,it's still current to Me! I don't think it matters how long a discussion has been kicking around here,as long as the subject matter wasn't something time critical when it was submitted..even more so when it didn't get any or many responses when new,or has yet to have best response awarded!

With me, I generally go by dates the original poster has been active. Thing is, here we're soooo far behind with a lot of US series. Quite often, they don't get picked up for a while. So what is old history to US viewers is new and fresh over here. This feels like it's going deep, into quantum and early Dr Who and all that ...
