Member join dateEdit

Ipigott: As far as I can tell, there is no way to prevent the Join WikiProject form from overriding date when updating membership details. However, it should be relatively easy to write a bot to fix the creation date. The logic would be as follows:

  • If the join date stated in a WikiProjectCard is older than the actual creation of the WikiProjectCard, leave it as it is.
  • Otherwise, replace the join date with the actual creation of the WikiProjectCard.

This would fix overriden creation dates, while keeping older creation dates that are older than the WikiProject X membership system itself. This is the case of WP:SOCIALISM, where I manually created membership cards for old members while keeping their original join date. What do you think? This would require some consensus here before we can request it at WP:BOTREQ. Best, --MarioGom (talk) 07:31, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Ipigott: Do you have some examples of WiR members who experienced this problem? That would be useful to validate the solution. --MarioGom (talk) 07:32, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
MarioGom: I'm afraid I can't remember specific names but there have been two or three cases over the past couple of months. Every day I check the membership list for additions by searching on the most recent dates. I then check to see whether the name appears on the appropriate mailing list. If it does, I check the membership card edit and usually find another "original" membership date. Next time it happens, I'll let you know. It's not a big problem but more than once I have "welcomed" editors who have been members for some time. I then have to apologize. Maybe you should just leave things as they are. Now that I'm aware of the problem, I'm more careful about welcoming people. Thanks for looking into this and proposing a solution.--Ipigott (talk) 07:52, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Ipigott: Ok. Given that the problem doesn't happen so frequently, I'll try a more lightweight solution with a user script. This would avoid the WP:BOTREQ hassle. Best, --MarioGom (talk) 07:57, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
