1 sentence description of the problem:
User ID 4 (ScaryDrum; former THT account) has an incorrect join date.
According to the API, ScaryDrum joined on December 1st, 2013. However, PlumbOut, User ID 3, joined on June 26th, 2014. Additionally, DeterminedDolphin joined June 19th, 2014 according to the API. Finally, Hopscotch didn’t even have accounts in 2013. You can even see this in action on the Web Explorer: ScaryDrum, PlumbOut, DeterminedDolphin
Thus, the date of December 1st, 2013 must be incorrect.
I expected this to happen:
ScaryDrum’s join date is either June 2014 or July 2014, or within the range of June 19th, 2014 to July 1st, 2014 (DevotedCloud’s join date) to be exact. But instead this happened:
ScaryDrum’s join date is December 1st, 2013, which should be impossible.
Haha yeah I remember the Hopscotch Team account did have a start date of December 2013. That was when the community was created, even though user accounts couldn’t be created until July 2014.
From what I know, the admin interface existed from the start, before user accounts could be created. So I think this date may have been from that time – I don’t know the full history of that account though.
We will probably not change the date of this account, though it’s definitely an interesting inconsistency you’ve found with the other early accounts there.
