Hi is it possible to find very first conversation between me and another user?

How to search url for that?

    What do you mean by between the two of you? How would the chat identify it? You don't even have chat privileges right now...?

If we assume you @-replied to the user you had a conversation with you can use normal search on chat (I took a conversation you had with a user named @ShaniGoriwal at that time as an example).

Follow these steps to get to this result:

  • Visit https://chat.stackoverflow.com/
  • In the right top corner enter the user you had the conversation with in the search box and hit enter
  • In the search result page enter your current username in the when said by box
  • click search again
  • Click newest
  • navigate to the last page using the paging controls at the bottom (if there are more then 50 results)
  • the last message on that page is your first interaction with that user

Notice that your previous username is recorded in the transcript.

  • I spend hours trying to find this. Good thing it is kept separate, which makes it easier to search and track. Thanks for the answer!
