Question Poe Has Spoken. My unimportant question has been answered... :hearts:

Something totally unimportant I don't understand:
  • Stinger changes her name to Martian Marri... but the thread she started "Welcome to Chez Marri" is still labeled as being started by Stinger.
  • Niminator changes his name to Nimi... and the thread HE started (and I think he might have had another name still when he started it) "A QUALITY thread for Israelis & their friends" lists as thread starter... Nimi !
How is this possible?
What does Nimi knows that Martian Marri doesn't?

So ok - it's not important - BUT IT'S BEEN BUGGING ME.
So please, anyone?

And oh yes, now that I'm here - I tried to put a non-wtaworld-smiley in my sig, namely this one: ... but it turned out code (you know: [img*]the address of the smiley[/img*]).
I suppose it's impossible to post an image in your sig?

He edited the first post in that thread after changing his name.

Indeed it is.

Oh - just a sec, hold everything!

This is what it says in Nimi's first post of his thread: "Last edited by Nimi on Oct 14th, 2002 at 03:21 PM". He changed his name from Niminator to Nimi long after that...

So my first question still stands !!

Grønnsak!?

Hi Miss Understood - I like that name. (Though I guess it was way too wide open to all kind of tasteless puns. )

Martian Stingthing - I have approximately 8 posts per day; you, OTOH, have approximately 21 posts per day --- and I'm not going to mention the averages of aaron® or Beautiful Vegetable here (I still can't believe you actually called him "Beautiful" )
So who has the most spare time here, eh? Hmmmm???


That's ok, Carot, thank you, anyway.
I'll ask Nimi: he should know, I guess.


Nimi - do you ever come in here? Niiiiimiiii ??

Yes, it was way too wide open and lame people started to make fun of it.

Martian Stingthing?

Hey, my posts are sacred. This isn't sparetime it's a time to talk without any control!

I thought "Stingthing" sounded kind of cute. Endearing.

NIMI?

My theories (probably wrong):

1. There is a certain cut-off date. Users who signed up before that date and then change their names will not get their previous posts updated. Users who signed up after that date and then change their names will get their previous posts updated.

2. The admin who changed the user's name did it the wrong way (somewhat). It does not update the user's previous posts. Some admins will do it the right way. Then it will update the user's previous posts.

Dunno bout your other theory
