What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Not too important, but it helps determining if posts of new users are spam:

The profile for this user claims this user joined two days ago, though its tooltip refers to about an hour:

Joined 2 days ago according to profile

The 10k tools currently show:

Joined 1 hour ago according to 10k tools

As the tooltip in my own profile (for a registered user) is correct, I guess the "2 days" is wrong?

The "member for" field isn't a duration, it's a counter. He joined 1 hour ago at 23:39:08, which was yesterday ("now" is "00:39:08", after midnight). He's been a member for 2 days: yesterday and today

Wow, I never saw that – TheLQ Jan 16 '11 at 6:05
Aha, that makes the "joined" in the 10k tools perfect for its task. – Arjan Jan 16 '11 at 10:19
