I just noticed something kinda odd. When you view a user profile there’s a numeric code at the end of the URL. It appears these numbers are assigned in the order in which you were registered. For instance, the code at the end of the URL for UncleBeer is “913” and I registered on 5/3/99. The code at the end of the URL for Satan is “930” and he registered on 5/4/99. (Happy Anniversary, Satan). So, now you can find out exactly who was here before or after anyone else.
This is different than the UBB in that the UBB had your user name in the URL rather than a sequential numerical string.
So, let’s see who really holds the mark of the beast, number 666… it’s “maxzmomliz”, never hoid of him.
I’m #4190, having registered on 23 January 2000.
I see Swiddles is #4015, which strikes me as a neat number. Hmmm… In the nine days between her registration (14 January) and mine, there were 175 registrations?!
Cyberian55 (2/19/99) (posts: 2. I swear, I am not making any of this up!)
Ian Rey (2/19/99)
Mike Lenehan (2/20/99)
Now this is interesting. What’s the deal with Lynn? She never showed her BBQ-moderating mug round these parts until March, yet she still gets to be number two? What’s up with that? Can I petition Ed and the boys to make me number one? Will aha beat me to it? Oh, and one last thing:
Hm, there are now almost as many people who registered after me as registered before. When we have 6222 members, I will be the fulcrum of the SDMB!
(Who’s the current one? Well, right now the newest person is Honesty at #6201. So half of that is 3100, The Smartass (SanibelMan), but that seems to be an alternate id. 3101 is Jo3sh, who has a relataive small number of posts. But, at the moment, he is the center of trhe SDMB universe!)
