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

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
