So, after doing some research (that doesn't include simply asking people, which would probably end up much easier) I ended up finding (an archive of) the OpMoonfall website, following the news link to the 'response from NOA and more', then to what I think is the original post? dated 25/7/2011. (For some reason using the searchbar to find SuperDecimal or the original post was hard, and the post I found has user Cody Davies, which may/not be the same user). Then searching "petition" (searching "petition online" was too specific..) at the FB page and scrolling to the bottom I think the original post is July 27, 2011 post, then between July 29, 2011 and August 3, 2011 it hit 10000 signatures. Searching "10000" yielded August 5, 2011 at 9770, then by this and surrounding comments, it seems to hit 10000 in the morning of August 6, 2011 (though I think my time zone is inappropriate, someone will have to reconfirm). Hmmm... Facebook is giving conflicting information/dates, looking at the leading up to posts and comments and their dates, so I need someone else to check. Also, the loading of posts accumulates somehow and I think it's lagging my browser a lot. Like, a lot.
- Whoops, I misread, it was referring to 10000 FB/Twitter fans. So it reached 15000 with August 3, 2011, and reached 10000 with July 30, 2011, and the petition started at or before ZU 25/7/2011; again, the FB dates may differ due to my time zone.
