PSA: If you joined DU between 2001 and mid-2003, you now have a proper join date [View all]
As mentioned in my anniversary thread last week, we have been working to assign join dates to members who joined prior to the launch of DU2 in mid-2003. The reason for this is that we will soon be starting a daily thread to celebrate DUers' anniversaries and posting milestones, and of course we didn't want to leave out our earliest members.
Elad has now completed the process of assigning join dates, so if you are a member who joined between 2001 and mid-2003, you can now see that date on your profile. Unfortunately, due to the way that we had to calculate these dates, we cannot guarantee that it is your exact join date -- however, rest assured that if it is not exactly correct, it is certainly within three or four days of the actual date. (Also note that everyone has a join time of 4:00AM -- we didn't calculate estimated times, so that was simply a side effect of the process of assigning dates.)
We're still testing to make sure the new daily thread works correctly, but we hope to have it up and running very soon.
Thanks for reading!
