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

In the new Accounts tab, a user can have joined "today ago".

Well, the user mayan arrivan on-when. – Nicholas Knight Mar 26 '11 at 15:46
Are you referring to "member for"? – Arjan Mar 26 '11 at 15:53
@Arjan No he's referring to the text Joined today ago below. Just Ctrl+F it, if you can't find it. – HoLyVieR Mar 26 '11 at 15:54
Your unicorn is missing its horn. – Gabe Mar 26 '11 at 16:05
@Nicholas, Yi: Thanks for the screenshot and unicorn. – user157130 Mar 26 '11 at 16:08
@Gabe: Unicorn horniness has been resolved, but the edit will need to be approved. – Nicholas Knight Mar 26 '11 at 16:09
And here I am, thinking that unicorns exist only in legends... :-D – Shadow Wizard Mar 26 '11 at 16:31
Should it be todayS? – Loïc Wolff Mar 26 '11 at 17:19
I think this problem will solve itself tomorrow... – Ivo Flipse Mar 26 '11 at 17:24
@Ivo - you mean "joined yesterday ago"??? – user27414 Mar 26 '11 at 18:58
Please use the correct spelling "too days ago" – Dr. belisarius Mar 26 '11 at 20:17
+1 for epic Hitchhiker's Guide reference, @Nicholas. Also, I'm not clear what the proposed solution would be. Should it say: "Joined to dayago?" or "Joined to daya go"? – chadmyers Mar 27 '11 at 5:13
Some other suggested fixes "joined al qaed ago", "joined fandan ago", or "you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave." – GrahamMc Mar 27 '11 at 5:13
@Tim thanks! By the way, if you want rep boost, add "Eeeek!" to the title somehow. :P – Shadow Wizard Mar 27 '11 at 8:31

This is fixed now ago. Sorry about that — I didn't test exhaustively enough.

Cool, thanks! P.S. My comments were not mocking you, just making light of the situation. We should all laugh at silly little bugs because we all make them. – chadmyers Mar 29 '11 at 17:48

This problem resolves itself after 24 hours (at the latest). Please be patient for the server caching to catch up. After that time, "today ago" will become "yesterday ago" and eventually "2 days ago" (alternatively, "todays ago" according to reverse Polish notation).

Come on, this is still lame. It's a polish thing, but I'd expect that from a otherwise so great platform as SO. – steipete Mar 27 '11 at 10:29
Agreed. Nothing is perfect, though. I think we've all been here, though. As much as we'd like to think we're the "bestest programmers that ever lived", we all have this kind of thing happen to us. I'm not mocking the SO developers as much as making light of an embarrassing situation we've all had to go through. – chadmyers Mar 29 '11 at 17:47
