Topic Subject:Minor quibble about user registration dates
posted 08-06-12 01:33 ET (US)
Was searching the C3 game help forum and came to this thread. Some accounts have been removed and I cannot see their profile but some accounts are supposedly registered long after the thread and posts are dated. For example Englicanus initiated that thread 05-24-99 but their account is registered in 03-16-2000. Same is true of teck. I'm not complaining or anything, just find it strange and curiosity provoking. Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Just curious.
Edit: KingCrimson has the mother of all "delayed resgistrations." lol A whole decade behind.

It's most likely related to all the forum crashes we had back then.

Or alternatively, it's caused by the forum merger that took place a couple of years ago, where all users from CBH (formerly in another database) were merged with the rest of HG's userbase. It might be that the date from the 'other' database was taken as new registration date for merged accounts.
