Yes, the peanut meme is that old

The oldest reference to Omnimaga peanuts I could find. However, according to what Radical_Pi/Nyrax replied, it was brought up before, too. I just forgot when. But yeah, if you wondered when did the peanut thing started, it was at least 4 years ago.
In case you are wondering where I went, I am still active in the TI community, but I left Omni back in 2015 for various  reasons. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new online home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.

Ah, the days when you were called xlibman :)
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

I haven't checked the links here, but IIRC it was spellshaper that started the trend roughly six years ago.

Yes it was. Here's the quote for posterity:
Hey Mina-chan ^_^

Welcome to the forums, enjoy your stay and grab some peanuts at the entrance, they're for free!

I think weve had topics like this a few times on how old the peanuts are. I remember at least one other one

Yeah, someone created one today, and that's why I brought up this one.

Oh wow... that post. I actually posted about this when the archives were restored, though, but I guess it's good that it's added to this topic too. It's effectively the original peanut post, although if I recall correctly, the actual bag did not appear until 2007. We used a peanut emoticon during the last few months of 2006.

Btw, peanuts were actually given on UTI too from 2007 to 2008. They used the Omni bag. I'm pretty sure you would be able to find old posts with them there.

There must be others, though, with the peanut bag.
