Has something changed recently which affects post dates on historical posts?
I ran into this today:
First hit is: [E-Type] Bonnet Restoration - E-Type - Jag-lovers Forums
If you look at that topic, you will see that it was started Dec 15, 1998.
The last reply shows up as 1 minute ago, and 100 years between the 2nd last post, and the reply.
100 years haven’t passed since 1998 (although it sometimes feels that way).
That 1 min has been almost 2 hours long.
If the final post had a malformed (y2k incompatible) datestamp, then presumably so would all the posts in that topic.
If the post’s datestamp really is that new, then shouldn’t it appear in “latest”? (It doesn’t.)
Seaching for “future” posts gives 37 hits at the moment: Search results for ‘after:2018-07-16’ - Jag-lovers Forums (That might explain why they don’t show up in “latest” or “new”.
If we had a y2k issue then I would expect we’d have seen it long before now, and there’d be a lot more than 37 posts in the future.
