[Question] When was the first chinese web novel fan translated to english?

I'm searching for some information on when the first fan translation of a chinese web novel began and what the novel was called. I know that one of the first (if not the first) Xianxia novel was translated was Stellar transformations (Started August 14th, 2013 [I counted by when the first chapter was completed]) by the legendary He-man. However, After searching for a while on the spcnet.tv forums the oldest translation I found was Little Li's Dagger (Started June 25, 2002). I'm not sure if this is the first so I wanted to call upon the people that might know. Seeing as this is now one of the biggest hubs for chinese web novel translation I'm hoping I can get an answer.

Any information or leads that can be given will be helpful.

If you'd prefer to contact me in private PM on the forums or send me an email at [email protected]

Also a link to my reddit post where I will be unifying all my findings.
