Me and Thett were digging through our PM archives, and I found it interesting that the first message I ever had on DDO was from some guy named 200machao, a seemingly obscure older member who I remember absolutely nothing about.

Post who your first message was with here. The quickest way: go to page 2 of the messages, click the url, and replace "page=2" with "page=1000" and it'll take you to the last page. Unless you actually have more than 1000 pages of messages, which...who knows, may be a possibility for a couple people here.

Between DDO.Welcome and You

Profile CardDDO.Welcome

Debate.org has many ways you can voice your opinion and share it with the community. If you plan on engaging in one on one debates with other members, it is important to understand how voting privileges work.

You can participate in one on one debates at any time. However to be able to vote on debates and award points to the member you felt won, you need to complete a couple of steps to be granted voting privileges.

To get information on those steps and review your status, please go here: http://www.debate.org......

My first message was from Ron-Paul challanging me to a debate. I showed this to people at my school and they all believed that I had debated the real Ron Paul.

Besides the automated welcome messages, my first message ever received on this website reads is copied here:

"You literally shocked me. I haven't had time to take a serious debate in a while, and most of the ones I take are just landslides because people have no idea what they are doing. You will become an excellent member here. The debate style you use is usually for 3k + elo members and you are already easily at that level.

I enjoyed it and great job man."

Needless to say, this message strokes my ego.

blast to the past.

The very first was from True2gaga (another long past forgotten member) just generally chatting with me and looking for attention (as she frequently did).

The first message I got was from Airmax:

"Hey, Niqash. I'm glad you're here. I want you to pretend to be a normal use and snoop around and see if people don't suspect anything about the "chicken in the kitchen floor" we've talked about. P.S, the bomb is in the living room dancing with Sasha."

Seriously, though, my first message from a real person was from emospongebob527, and he just wanted to let me and several other people know that he was disappointed with a debate of his.

From first message from somebody who was attempting to communicate with me, and not to a group, was from KeytarHero, and he was just responding to a message I sent him first.

My first message from a real person who was messaging me individual and not a group, and who was initiating the conversation was Paradox_7 who just wanted to let me know he liked something I said on the forum.

Message on my first account was from Microsuck. I voted against him and he wanted to know how he could make his arguments better.

On this account, it was from Niqash asking why I closed my other account/
404 coherent debate topic not found. Please restart the debate with clear resolution.

Lol.... My first message was from STALIN...

please vote on this poll
http://www.debate.org...

Actually, the only one on that page that wasn't STALIN asking me to vote on a poll was Mysterious Stranger who was responding to a PM I sent him that explained I was just trolling when a discussion led to me telling him to die XD I was a different troll back then. He took it well though, so no harm done.

A message from a guy called TheFreeThinker asking me to vote on his debate.

The first 5 members who messaged me after that were kohai (on a different account), aircraftmechgirl, seabiscuit, larz, and Roy. Roy's message was the best:

"76% agreement with me -- you are clearly very smart."

Haha, apparently my first non spam message was from charlesb asking me to participate in one of his communism thread. Nostalgia ;')

"Just thought that you might be interested in my latest post in my thread on the concept of "earning". I take a slightly different tack and provide another empirical reason why capitalist markets aren't really viable. Also, I've responded to a couple of your replies that I previously overlooked. Although you're a hostile respondent to the thread your feedback is always welcome."
