    That's available in the poll sticky located here:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=13613 (Where in the world?)

    While that's only 3100 votes, it has been active continuously for more than 6 years. Votes are added everyday from across the membership, so, it is probably fairly accurate as a sample set.

    Well, except maybe for the 11 from Antarctica.

    Yes, 100,000 is an impressive number! I wonder how this compares to other similar forums. I personally think that part of the success of this forum is due to the ever present moderation which keeps the whole environment sanitized from bullies and trolls. Administrators and Moderators are doing a great job.

    If I made a wish, I wouldn't mind winning a Windows 7 license... You guys can have the rest!

    Nice find, that.
    I wonder who made the very first post?
    Is that searchable?

    I would guess Paul W :)


    The board is older than that, but it would need an historian to tell the whole story ;)
    At least already in September 2001 it existed on the EZboard.
    On 8/9 February 2002 it migrated to another Host and at that time it used YaBB.
    Later the board migrated to vBulletin (which the board is using now), but I don't remember when that happened.

    This forum is contagious, I can`t help coming here several times a day to learn about security and hear what knowledgeable people have to say about different problems. Learning all the time. Thanks to the Wilders team.

    Re: 100,000 members license giveaway!

    That is indeed the oldest "public" post remaining on the forum.

    As FanJ pointed out above, this forum was originally created as a "YaBB 1 Gold SP1" forum in Feb 2002. The actual first post was made in a private forum section and was esentially an "Okay, the forum is created..." kind of post. It was made on February 8th, 2002 at 01:51am, minutes after the installation process was completed.

    The forum opened to the public on the next day. The post noted above by Get was one of the first made in the public forum sections. There were others, but, some posts were deleted back in the earlier days.

    And, as additional trivia, the forum moved to YaBB SE on June 10, 2002, then to vBulletin on April 10, 2004, but, the base database itself is still the same now as what was started on Feb 8, 2002. It was carried forward by conversions and migrations, maintaining existing posts, threads and members, from one forum software to the next.
