Activity log entry before registration date

I looked at the last page of my activity tab today, and discovered it is full of

created TAGNAME description

created TAGNAME excerpt

entries. So are the two pages before it.

It seems that for every tag wiki I edited, I am credited with creating that excerpt or description on the date it was originally created.

Screenshot

For example, I joined SO in December 2010, and the hover text in the above screenshot clearly shows I created the wiki excerpt months earlier.

So, funny story: I accidentally click on the "java" tag link in your question, and the first question I saw was this one. –  Cody Gray Apr 14 '12 at 9:48

I have the same on my page, but only for the ant tag wiki excerpt. –  Paŭlo Ebermann Apr 14 '12 at 13:14
    
@PaŭloEbermann When did you edit that? All my edits were made in the last couple of days. –  agf Apr 14 '12 at 17:21

On June 18th 2011 - but it is still the latest excerpt edit up to day. Maybe there got a < mixed with > or something similar. –  Paŭlo Ebermann Apr 14 '12 at 17:29

We have been battling the activity stream tag wiki stuff for a while now, for example: Tag wiki edits are missing in the activity profile tab

Initially when I designed tag wikis "community user" created the wiki blank and then the end user "revised" the blank wiki. Some people found this confusing so we changed it so the initial revision is a "proper" creation revision however the post is owned by community.

Trouble is this design makes querying for activity very very annoying. We cache an entry in our Posts table for LastEditorUserId, however have no cached entry for FirstEditorUserId.

There was a bug there that used LastEditorUserId as though it was FirstEditorUserId.

I amended the query to properly join into PostHistory to figure out the proper timeline.

Apologies for the confusion.

Thanks! Could you mark meta.stackexchange.com/questions/110741/… status-completed and close one of these as a dupe of the other? –  agf May 1 '12 at 16:31
