Joining date mismatch


#1

From the old forum my joining date is April 27th, 2009 but here it is showing as Oct 16, '14. Is it possible to correct this?


#2

I’m seeing 26th: https://www.kirupa.com/forum/member.php?143959-kadaj

As just a lowly mod, I don’t seem to have the ability to change join dates, so you might need @kirupa or @krilnon to get to change that for you.

That must be time zone difference. I have contacted @kirupa.


#4

The vB import script that Discourse provided, and that I improved (a bit), did not include functionality for importing join dates. I set them manually for some population. Probably all of the moderators.


#5

ok. Please update mine also.


#6

If we subtract the gap that you weren’t around, would the join date match up to be about what it is now?

:wink:


#7

I snooped around the mod/admin panel, and there isn’t an easy to update the join date! This might require actually modifying the database entry :ghost:

Updated it:

user = User.where(username: 'kadaj').first
user.created_at = Time.parse('26 Apr 2009 17:31:24 UTC +05:30')
user.save!

Yay! Thanks @krilnon.
