I'm sure this is answered somewhere but I can't find it.  Is there a way to see when you joined RPOL?

There isn't a way to know exactly (for a lot of older accounts, even the Mods don't have that information), but this thread tells you how to find out roughly when you joined: link to a message in this forum  Note that in many cases, you can only find out a date that you joined before.

As in "Before January 31st 2010", for example.

I know my first game application was February 7, 2006.  Apparently I made a note of it when I wrote my autobiography, whenever that was...  So I probably joined RPoL on the 5th or 6th.

Which I say less to gloat and more to suggest that anyone who does still remember when they joined might want to put a note of it somewhere.  You'll thank yourself later.  After a decade or so, it's not an uncommon thing to start wondering.

I've still got my confirmation email from when I first created my RPOL profile, floating around in a folder on my email account.

In reply to facemaker329 (msg # 4):

Sadly I have to change e-mails every several years. One, there's security issues (for me specifically). Secondly, I had a Hotmail Account...then a Yahoo Account...Now Gmail, but I still haven't sorted out the relay for Gmail yet, since my friend in New Zealand was my deadman collector, and I haven't talked to him in like...I think seven or eight years. Anyway, my hotmail account has had my confirmation e-mail, which I know was around 2004 or before. I think it was 2002, but I question that now. I plan to change my user data to my Gmail account when I get the relay setup and pin a new deadman collector.

I SO wish I had that confirmation e-mail. I had an issue with RPoL only a couple years after joining; I had logged in at a friend's and he decided to post on my account, for a CD key for a PC game of all things, and then to make matters worse started a flame war about some erroneous uncle or something that was a lawyer. Bat-psycho stuff like that! So I got fed up, and left RPoL for awhile. As he really put my name into the long straw list. When I came back, I think in 2007, I never stayed away for more than a couple months. Though I've always been slow. TOR is still slower though xp.

With the same caveat that BBR gave (ie that the date given for older accounts will just say  "Before 08:00, Sun 23 Oct 2005" or "Before 10:53, Sat 05 May 2007" as appropriate) ...

You can find your sign up date under user preferences on the Beta test site - https://beta.rpol.net/usermodules/profile.cgi top left in the RPoL Information block.  :>

Mine says before 2007.  So it must have been somewhere during 2006-2007 since it doesn't say before 2006 or 2005.  :-)
Thank you all for the advice.

At some point in time, I've noted down in my autobiography section that I joined in 2002. Such a long time ago.
