never.  I used to cry at night about it, but I got over it.
 
2017-11-08 06:54:29 PM  
I hung the bloody sheet out of the window so that the whole town would know!
 
2017-11-08 07:00:36 PM  
How can I check what my first greenlight was?
 
2017-11-08 07:03:42 PM  
After years and years, I had my first a couple of weeks ago, and my second the next day.  Had to explain to my S.O. about how Fark works, so my brief moment of joy landed on somewhat deaf ears.  With 2 under my belt, I think I might retire now.

I owe my first greenlit thead to a filthy 'liter friend of mine because his headline sucked so I stole the link and resubbed it as my own.
 
2017-11-08 08:11:41 PM  
It was 2006 and it was about Rice Krispies. I am too lazy to find the link. It was a "meh" submission

2017-11-08 08:13:38 PM  
God, that's been a while.  I think it was when James Van Allen died.  So not sure that "proud" is quite the right word for it.

Oldest one that I can view in the profile is actually one of my better ones:

Mayor decides the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) needs a new name. Chooses "Tomorrow Is Totally Serious, Let's Integrate New Generations" (TITSLING)

YMMV
 
2017-11-08 08:17:58 PM  
Oh, whew it says submission. I thought it said emission and that's a thread of a different color.
 
2017-11-08 08:23:51 PM  
I went forever without a green, and only have 3-4 now. As noted in my profile:

Finally lost my greened submission virginity! Naturally, alcohol was involved:

I found a nude spread of the woman who played the Super Hot Giant Alien Chick from Dude Where's My Car?

Submitted it to foobies.com with the headline "Super Hot Giant Alien Chick from Dude Where's My Car...naked"

It got a lot of clicks. Funny thing is, though...revisiting the link later (maybe a year maybe less) the site had redirected the link to whatever other shiatty porn they had up.

If we had a means of querying the DB I'd tell you. As it is I don't remember what it was.
 
2017-11-08 08:29:41 PM  
I don't remember my first, but I remember my best.

"Much like its namesake, Parishiaton.com spent the weekend being penetrated by trojans".

/Too lazy to go to teh Googles for the link.

Couple banned from community pool because friend didn't pay $100 "bad attitude" ticket

Fark has been full of HOA bashers since at least 2003.  I was pleased. In time I learned not to take submissions too seriously.  Win some, lose some.  I've probably had over 20,000 links rejected.

Mine was Oprah buys new jet that seats 12 people. 7 if Oprah is in between diets.

It was one of the Dem debates from last year apparently.

65 greens now.

cman: Krispies


This one?
 
2017-11-08 08:47:13 PM  
My first was under my previous alt. Screwed up spelling in the headline, but the modadmins corrected it.
It was a story about Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter going for a ride on Jimmy's namesake submarine. "Rosalynn Carter to go down on Jimmy Carter." [OBVIOUS] Tag.

Got into the finals of the HOTY contest last year with one about Trump.

Indeed, thats the one.

What happens when you rob a bank at 9am 2 blocks from the police station and government center? You're in jail by 9:15 and on Fark by noon

June 2007. Was pleased.

/This story took place about 100 feet from where Heather Heyer was killed by the Ohio Nazi in Charlottesville
//The video of the Nazi car speeding backwards across the pedestrian mall was taken right in front of this bank.
 
2017-11-08 08:50:25 PM  
I think it was some dumb version of "Old and busted _________ New hotness _________"

Don't really remember.
 
2017-11-08 08:52:25 PM  
I think it was a video game related article. Maybe 5-6 years ago. Can't remember exactly.
 
2017-11-08 08:58:29 PM  
No idea.  It was a few thousand ago.

Back in ??? 2006 maybe?

I had been a lurker since 2002, and finally joined in 2003. But couldn't get no greens.

Then, some database error wiped out All. Fark. Links.

The page was empty!

I knew the modmins would be frantic to fill the front page back up so I seized my chance and got my first ever greenlight.

After the excitement wore off, I had a vague, dirty kind of feeling. But I wanted more...

Alas, I've only had a few successes over the years. It's really just impossible unless you are a modmin favorite, or manage to be brilliant in one lucky second.
 
2017-11-08 09:15:23 PM  
I only have one, but I think it's a good one:
"Sequencing the platypus genome reveals evidence of birds, reptiles, God's sense of humor"

It was a while ago.

Fingerware Error:

Sadly I go back a lot further thank that!
 
2017-11-08 09:24:05 PM  
I have no idea. I've slept since then.

The thirst here. No fuhcking joke
 
2017-11-08 09:25:41 PM  
If I remember correctly, my headline made fun of Paris Hilton getting kicked by a horse, years and years ago when her reality show first aired. I was so proud.

Then I had breakfast.

Yeah, 720 days only takes us back to late 2015.
 
2017-11-08 09:40:56 PM  
I've posted maybe three, and two went green. Both were uneventful- one was a Kubrick thread (probably in Geek tab bc I recall it being related to 2001) and the other one was probably an elaborate fart joke lost to history.
 
2017-11-08 09:45:17 PM  
FARK, I should have an alt and claimed I submitted this headline as my first green-light.

Even today a green gives you a little buzz of :Hey they like me"

foo monkey: I don't understand how some people have thousands of them. Other than them being funnier than me, of course.


In a recent thread I naively suggested 500 greens seemed like a lot and was quickly corrected by someone with nearly 5000, who said he was 4th on the all-time list (apparently there's a ladder somewhere), and that the top guy had over 10000 ? (I checked and that was right, although I can't rem handles and exact numbers now)

But it worked out that he had to be getting 3 greens every 2 days, every day for about  13 years, which seemed a bit improbable unless he was a mod greening his own links

My first Green was a Boobies link. For years, the only Greens I got were from Boobies links.

/It should be noted that my first dozen submissions were ONLY Boobies links.

It was about Lions that were found in crack houses in Detroit getting a housing upgrade. At the zoo.

Can't remember how long ago

This POS got greenlit so a few Farkers can jerk off? Gimme a break. Are admins/mods 16 years old? 'Cos it sure as fu*k looks that way.

Also funny how the above mentioned often have a shiat-ton of greenlit links.

Yeah. Fu*king hilarious.

Thanks, I didn't know about that

Amazing - The English Major has had 4299 greens so far this year (today is Day 311), which means he averages over 13 a day, every day.

Principal Clarinet has 24250 in 2778 days, which is over 8 a day, every single day.

(And I used to think I was crash hot if I got 2 greens on the same day)

That's just too sad for me to remotely comprehend. Even if (s)he is a mod/admin.
