Re: Join date of 1969?

There was a server crash/rebuild back in 2001. When everything was brought back, existing members ended up with the 1969 join date.

You look younger than your age, if that's true.

The site was started in 99 when the E46 first came out. The forum ran on a very basic forum software that did not have a join date. When we converted to vBulletin the join date for any member moved over was left blank, which shows up as 1969. We were going to correct it at some point but everyone seems to like it as a badge of OG-ness so we left it.
