PostPosted: Sun Apr 29, 2007 2:08 pm    Post subject: Character creation dates for older characters Reply with quote

I've knocked together a little script that should help pick out a few creation dates for the 'stats' command, for those people whose chars were created before creation dates started being logged a few years ago.

Not everyone will be recoverable because there's a lot of holes in the logs (especially in the year 2000, when most of my backups were done on a CD-RW that decided to just stop working one day).

However, because it still involves an amount of manual work to find each one, I'll only do them for people who ask, either here or by mudmail.

This is a list of people who don't have creation timestamps. If you're on the list and want fixing up so that you can view stats on average qps-per-hour and so forth, let me know.

update: I've done Akastron, Waldo, Keegan, Mythic, and Beholder's (only 6 years to get a mage to level 81!).

In cases where people deleted and recreate characters, I've always gone with the most recent date because that's how the mud would have done it had creation dates been in operation at that time.

ok, Nightblade, Neq, and Vicks don't have logged creations so I'm going to fill in approximate values based on which backups have their pfiles in or notes on boards from and which don't.
Nightblade's I've narrowed down to within a 2 week period in July 1999, which is pretty good. He's maybe 6 months older than Vicks. Neq is pretty recent, about the start of 2001 I think, give or take a month.

.

But you listed my creation date as November 3rd.

July - August - September - October ... something seems fishy here...

I said maybe!
I was being generous with your November date. I've only got evidence of you existing in February the following year... I could change it to that if you like.

I'm pretty sure you did. I started around 1999 when I went to University, and I told you about it during that year.
