How to find out how long you have been on RPoL
How can one find out when they first signed up for RPoL?  I had somebody ask me and I had to admit that I couldn't remember when I first came to RPoL.

How to find out how long you have been on RPoL
You probably joined sometime in the spring of 2010, judging by your user number and various times cited here: link to a message in this forum

The only real way to know is to find your original welcome email.

What he said...

There was actually a discussion on here recently about that.  RPOL doesn't keep track of your date of joining the site, on site...but the email that gets sent out after you sign up gives you a very accurate date.  Aside from that, you're stuck looking for your earliest post in the earliest game you joined (assuming you're still in the game) or looking for your earliest rMail (assuming you sent/received any shortly after you joined).

But most users are no longer in the first game they joined on RPOL...my first RPOL game no longer exists.  And there are a lot of users who signed up for RPOL before rMail was added as a feature.  So there are pretty major shortfalls to either of those two methods.

Thanks!  I can use the 2010 for a general idea.  Like many my first games are no longer being run, etc.
