    Our old join date?

    When i was registered as Nerdpower50 on the original forum, i took pride in being one of the very first registered users to the site, back in ye old forum days. Similarly, i was a member of Sws2b a very long time ago and then when they recreated the forum we had to rejoin.

    On sws2b (Now SonicRetro) users were able to request our old rejoin dates and have them fixed for our new accounts. Would that be possible here?

    Thanks,

    Evan

    This isn't something I had really thought about, but it is something I will consider if enough members are interested in having their accounts updated with their join dates rolled back to those from the original forum.

    I wouldn't just update single user requests though because it would start giving some members join dates older than the site staff.

    Hmm, that would be interesting, but how easy would it be?

    It would require me to go through the old forum membership list and then edit each member's profile on here changing their join date entry to the one from the old forum. So, quite easy to do, but time consuming.

    How many people carried over the two sites? Must be about 20 regulars - it's something that'd be quite cool, as all the people that moved over have the same join date. Be better to see who the true originals are IMO.

    (Mine shows up as 26-September 03, four and a half that have just flown by)

    Did you surf the net whilst sitting on your potty???

    That's quite some time, Stephen, which demonstrates you are definitely a 'stayer'.

    Good suggestion, Vangar!

    Feel free to change mine as well.

    Checked my join date in the old forum and it was the 22nd of May 2003. Nearly five years!

    Mine's 15-January 03. Well and truely 5 years =P.

    All of us from the old forum really love our Amigas, haha. Also after going back to the older site, i realised that we don't use the amiga mouse as the mouse on the forum anymore. I'd like to see that come back, what do you all think?
