I am not worried about it either, it is just that John changed his number and I wondered if moderators can change any data they want to and if other data was mucked with! I don't think he did, but it doesn't seem right to me. Leave the historical data alone.
Neil, you have done wonders with the forum. I appreciate the work you've done no end! I would give you a medal of honor. .
Why are you worrying about this, kate? It sounds like you've got a beef with John, but your just dancing around it with this "historical" stuff. So what if he changed his number?
I stumbled into this thread, and it's none of my business. But, really, whatever the folks who run this place, keep it up and us out of trouble ~ Whatever they want to do is pretty much their business. Ya think?

Kate, I didn't change my number at all. I don't think I even can, nor would I even care because it really holds no significance for me.
I understand now what you are asking. And I wonder if it's when we moved to this upgraded software (and yes, it is MUCH upgraded since Stan never did upgrade it in what...6-7 years?).
I bet what happened was that Stan deleted some ID's that left. Remember Misha? That's just one example. He's no longer here or registered. I bet he was #3, and when I registered this ID when we moved, it just stuck me in the first available slot number.

Actually, I have a vague recollection that this may have been me when I did the first major upgrade. I don't remember the details, but this sort of rings a bell. There was a lot of direct database twiddling that we did (e.g., not through the web interface, but directly in the MySQL database).
