Since I'm new, I can answer this :)

First person ever replied to me was @Nora, then @cupiscent and then @Peat. They all helped me about my need of a new book to read.

Then came @ScarletBea and told me to introduce myself and helped me a lot since :)

I failed to find the intro section and dived directly into book recommendation section and I introduced myself in my first ever topic, Series suggestion
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

It was Arry - back in October 2013 :o

Who was the first person to reply to you outside the intro section?
Do you mean post after my first non-intro comment? Then it was Anne Lyle (I love her books!)

Who were the first three posters who replied to your first ever topic?
I only got the courage to create a thread about 3 weeks after I joined, and looking at it now, the first ones to reply were Patremagne, Arry and Xiagan :D

I had to go back and look this up, and I have 69 pages of posts so I am not allowed to post any more sorry guys

I don't appear to have ever bothered to introduce myself? I just started throwing around opinions about my favourite books and worldbuilding and gender. Everyone look surprised. :)

First topic I ever started was actually a chunk of my novel for critique (after I'd been posting for a year) so I don't know that that counts...

Hello Cuppy!!!

Welcome to the forum, tell us a bit about yourself.

When did you first start reading, who are your favourite authors, how did you find the forum, Where do you live in the wide world.

Most importantly of all don’t be scared to join me in posting in old topics.

Have Fun.

My first topic only got one reply from graveyardhag.
Next topic was a NaNoWriMo-topic that got one reply too. From Tiffany Kysis Tackett.

Xiagan, twice. Once when I asked how to do spoilers, and then when I posted in the intro section.
I was nervous about the Forum at first, but then I posted like a mad man in 2015,] and 2p16. Then a bit less in ‘17, and a bit less in ‘18, and a...
