    So, I realize this would be a bit of a project, or it's something that can be done on an as-requested basis, but is it possible to put in accurate join dates to match someone's library date?

    I really, really like the ability to see how long someone's been a member right under their posts, but it'd be cool if it were accurate.

    Thanks!

    As the join date is a feature already within the new software, and this is a request that goes beyond the scope of this forum, I'm going to move this request to Ask the White Tower.

    Woohoo! :joy

    Though seriously, I also think it would be cool, but also a large project. I like history/info stuff like that. Also, because I can be forgetful. :look

    Yeah, if I'm given access to change 'em on the forums, I can also do it. It's just one field. :p

    I'm curious what you would put as the join date in the case of people who have left and returned a few times.

    Is there a minimum rank you would think folks would need to achieve in order to have "joined" at a certain date? Or a period of time they'd need to have stayed?

    Or, in the case of people who had been Senior Members who have ghosted (and are starting over), would you leave their new join date, or put their old date?
