Wonky date at the bottom of post timeline (1969)

Just noticed this after update today, not sure if it’s new or I just didn’t notice earlier, but the clickable date at the bottom of the timeline for this topic is showing “Dec 1969”: The Meta Course Curriculum - The Meta Course - Hyperlink Forum

Only seeing for this one topic so far. Seems to show even in safe mode. Any ideas?

That’s the beginning of time. Either somehow that topic didn’t get assigned a created_at or your server’s time is way off.


Indeed! But there’s only one post in the topic and it has a date, May 6th (accurate). Is there a separate date for topic vs. first post of that topic that if created via API call and left empty, could be causing the mismatch?

For some reason the last_posted_at date of your topic is null… why? no idea.



Huh, maybe an issue with a bad API call or something, not sure, will look into it. Hopefully a one time thing. Thanks!


Did you create that post with an API call? If so, that’s a good bet. (Though I’d think that last_posted_at would be automatically set).


Yes this one was created via API. I’d also think that would be set automatically but possible we accidentally deleted it or something.
