Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am a member of SO for 12 months. I did not receive the yearling batch yet, as the month calculation only is based on months, not on the exact date. But when I looked up my date of joining, statoverflow data dump tells me 08/31/2008, but moderators tell me I joined 09/03/2008. I would like the joining date instead of a wording, just so I know. What do you think?

was stackoverflow running already on 09/03/2008? :D – a_m0d Aug 29 '09 at 10:01
I'm European, so I understand your comment. I lived in the states when I turned 18, on 4/8/xxxx (April 8th), but wanting to have a beer for cheer, I was not allowed, Guess why? – malach Aug 29 '09 at 10:53

Like almost every date on our site, just mouse over to see the exact raw UTC date in a tooltip.

This applies to your "member for" field on your /user page as well.

I never noticed this (on the profile page)! I feel stoooopid. At one point I even ran a manual "halving" search using the "recent activity" page to find it out... oh how embarrassing. – Marc Gravell Aug 29 '09 at 9:20
