The date issue has been answered (it's the default value for our dates instead of having a Null value in there). You can test this by trying to view non-existent profile such as www.abovetopsecret.com...

As for whom Bill and Mark are... (Throws my head back and laugh out loud)... I take it you're unfamiliar with SkepticOverlord and Springer?

Guess you missed "Bring-your-Site-Owner-to-work day"...


The accounts "Bill" and "Mark" were created to prevent anyone from registering with those names and pretend that they are either Bill or Mark. The accounts were created but no one ever logged into the accounts, thus their "last visit dates" are the default values.

Mystery solved yet?

Sadly, these two (2) are taken as well...

the simple answer is that using forum adminCP [ administrator control panel ] a set of tools that allow a forum admin to change almost anything , humerous tweaks like setting dates to " impossible " values are common on forums

Actually, our control panel has been "dumbed down" to do very little beyond change a member's status/password and create new forums.

The original very practical reason was that our database had grown so huge, that even typically minor changes for most "discussion boards" ended up having a performance impact on our huge database with huge traffic.

Of course, keeping me from inadvertently cratering the site isn't a bad reason, either.


As for the Bill and Mark Conspiracy, I'm in the time traveler camp.

Who's to say you guys didn't get the winning bid when John Titor put his time machine up on eBay six years from now?

It wasn't on eBay, it was Craig's List.

And the damn thing ran out of power before we could go back to 1989 and buy a boat load of Apple stock.

If you didn't reset my old John Titor account, I would have thrown in an extra battery.

I can't remember if it was this one or this one (2003?), but I do remember the few posts I had were comedic gold.

The secret behind the power source is lots of Cuban cigars and a "laser"...


...but you didn't hear that from me.





(Meanwhile, the real John Titor would simply go back to a point prior to his account being disabled, post merrily away, and we wouldn't be able to stop him.)
