    Not sure, but I think it has to do with the switch from phpBB to vBulletin a year or two back. Those users that haven't logged in since the switch probably show some strange dates. If Core Wizard sees your thread, maybe he can verify.

    I was looking at the Members list the other day and the join dates appear to be correct, but their last post is back in the good old days before PC were invented. weird huh, they joined in 2004 but they made a post on 12-31-69.

    I bet it has some connection to (why those particular dates) Unix time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
