My registration date has changed. No, I didn't go back in time and register a day earlier, but Peel has taken the liberty to change my registration date from the 30th September 2001 to the 29th September 2001. This must have only happened recently as I often check my profile. I also checked homerjaysimpsons's registration date as she registered on the same day as me, but hers has also changed from the 30th to the 29th...

Why has this happened?
Can this be corrected?
Has this happened to anyone else apart from us two?...

It's a timezone thing, I think.

When we went from PEEL 1 to PEEL 2, all registration dates were set to hh:mm 00:00 GMT+1 (since the old PEEL did not record the registration time and since the server was sitting in GMT+1). New Peel shows all times in local time. Depending on your own daylight saving time I guess it can show up as either the correct date or as the date-1. You could set your timezone offset to +0 in your profile Look & Layout Preferences and see if that makes the date right again (but that will make all times on PEEL GMT+1 (Berlin) time).

Is there any possibility we can open registration again?

My thought is that it was closed due to bots, and no one with authority wanted to cull through such matters.

If I am wrong about that, I would not mind hearing an explanation, not that I deserve one.

If so, I think someone here would not mind the chore of tidying when necessary, if given the right tools... Perhaps something to disable registration temporarily.

I also considered building a method to post without an account, so the hurdle for new (good) entrants would be lower.

That and the registration process could have something like recaptcha designed into them.

I like this forum, and I would like for it to be active and healthy.

It used to have a lot of exceptional, informative, and insightful discussion on it.  Even when people disagreed, they reasoned out their perspectives, and I personally have gained much knowledge and wisdom from such conversations, even when I was completely wrong.  I would like more of this for myself and for others.  No ability to bring in new members is harmful to that type of environment, I think.

Perhaps we can introduce a moderation system on new registrations like we do on the Infosphere?  Each new member has to manually verified by a 'bureaucrat' or administrator.  They type in a few details about themselves to give us an idea whether they are bots or humans.  Assuming there will only be a few new registrations, this won't be a trying job for whomever gets it.
