I am curious: What was the first question asked on this version of OpenStudy?

    This appears to be the oldest question in our database. http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/4d2f689a44214ee2e9ac0a71 It was before the actual launch of the site so it's probably @shadowfiend or @chris ;)

    Wow! :) But wasn't the site launched in 2010, if I am not wrong?

    If it was -- why does it show the label "1 year ago" when it should show "2" instead?

    It was a sandbox site in 2010, meaning they were making edits and tweaks to it at the time. I don't believe it was up for official use and was finalized. Even now, the site is undergoing changes.

    Actually, I'm about 99% sure you're completely wrong Compassionate. To the best of my recollection the site was official before then, but was using a completely different codebase (Rails, I suspect) but check @shadowfiend's response. He'd know.

    The site went through several phases over the years. We had a full production system up probably around 2010 (honestly the years have blurred at this point :p) that was altogether different from this one. Different look, different feel, different approach, different goals. It set us up to build OpenStudy as you see it now. Many of the users from the old site were migrated to the new one, but none of the questions were. This site was the result of a stealth project on my part. We'd been discussing some alternate designs but no one really wanted to pull the trigger. Shortly before Christmas that year (December 7th, 2010), I built the widget we currently still have on MIT OCW and other pages. Just a couple of days after that, Feury took over widget duties and I started assembling the base aspects of the current version of OpenStudy off of the same code base. That work continued through the Christmas holidays and into the new year. I don't recall exactly when we launched this version of OpenStudy, but it was initially not the main site, instead existing only on math.openstudy.com . It took about three more months before we decided to switch the whole site over, and a little time after that to actually make it happen. Crazy times!
