I´ve just signed up to Programmers and i noticed in my profile that "member for" indicates that i´m a member since 3 months.

I´ve expected an other value like "less than 1 month" or "1 day".

Is this a bug or the default value for new users.

Well, someone from an IP address in "Siegen 07 Germany" created your account back in February. (I can provide email addresses and specific IPs if necessary, but I am not sure that would be advisable in a public area.)

Are you sure you didn't just have a duplicate account you created earlier and forgot about?

    I can´t remember beeing on Programmers, but "Siegen 07 Germany" indicates that i created the account. But why is my visit rate only 2 days (yesterday and today) and not lets say 3 days when i was on February on Programmers?

  • @Anna: In that case I have no idea. We'll need someone higher up to take a look.
