I checked 'My Account' earlier and found that I joined WHF on Friday 1st January 2012, some 45 weeks and 6 days ago????????????????

1/1/2012 was in fact a Sunday and given that 1/1/2013 is less than 4 weeks away I was wondering what form of calendar you use and what branch of mathematics/arithmetics you use?

Could someone from WHF advise me please?

puzzled

RE: Why is your Calendar WRONG?

According to the date under your avatar you joined 20 January 2012, which by my maths is exactly 46 weeks ago. So 45 weeks and 6 days is not too far wrong is it?

Yes but the date on his account is 19 days adrift and it must be quite upsetting.

One can only assume that the OP is a keen follower of Dr Who based on this snippet I found in Wikipedia concerning the adoption of the Gregorian calendar. I guess he fears the Faction Paradox.

"In the Doctor Who Eighth Doctor Adventures series, it was revealed that the Eighth Doctor's enemies, Faction Paradox, a cult of time-travelling voodooists who worship paradox, have established a base in the eleven days that were missing from the calendar after the change-over, the Faction exploiting their manipulation of perception and contradiction to take the days that everyone believed were missing and make them 'real'."

What you have just said is accurate, if I had been talking about the date under my avatar.  But, I refered WHF to the 'My Account' information which is wrong absolutely and in reference to my membership.

Strange, though it obviously isn't to you, but it isn't upsetting to me at all.  I did wonder though that such inaccuracies could be an indicator of other problems arising in this newly updated and redesigned website.  Other than that Chebby I couldn't give a rats bottom.

hello or goodbye

Indeed, I was jolls, for having the temerity to argue with a WHF 'bigwig'.    Shock

So your real question is, why is the date in your 'My Account' and the 'Joined: ' under your avatar 19 days apart...

No Major.  My question is as I put it when raising this thread.

It is a matter for you/WHF John.  

The info in both places does not tie up, none of it was originated by me.  The stated day of the 1/1/12 is wrong.  Surely the 'My Account' info and the info under my Avatar should correspond?  If your computer system thinks that 1/1/12 was a Friday, is that an indicator that your system has a problem that might impact on more important things than how long I have been a member of this Forum?

I thought this might have occured to someone at WHF which is why I have raised the matter.  But do forgive me if I have caused offence, I have only tried to be helpful.  [unlike me I know, but perhaps that is why my thread seems to be a bit of a curveball].
