Some odd connection going on here, this l$'s profile link is member999.html and my username begins with 999. Odd glitch.

that looks like a problem with the post crash scripts
from the scraped logs I can see that the post body indicates EDITED
but the record has an empty EDITED-BY field
this may have resulted in I$ being invented as a placeholder

Jason,
if there are no other refs to user I$ then the post should be fixed to be edited by 999_springs
and user I$ should be deleted

Other posts by 999_Springs with edits attributed to l$ are here and here. Wouldn't be surprised if all of the "last edits" of 999_Springs' posts showed the same error ... probably a systematic error during reconstruction as gsf suggested.

    "Last edited by" should always show the same username as the user who made the post

      i hope Admin can sneak into the DataBase and make the adjustment

I fixed the edited by names.

Does anyone know if the two posts by l$ are also actually by 999_Springs?

I seriously doubt it. If one believes the dates, 999_Springs joined the forum some 15 months after those posts.

Got it.

Yes, there could well be more. There is no simple way to search for them.
