Your quote's timestamps MAY break after september 7, 2014?
« on: April 11, 2013, 08:10:56 pm »
I noticed while messing around with quote timestamps I could NOT get them any to go any higher than september 7, 2014

Example:

The plasma guns are out!!!!
Then fire the computer monitors!!!!!

inside of that is date=9999999999
I  think things will break when the date actually gets to that

You are correct in that there is an upper limit to the "date" parameter within the quote tag. Your terminal date is much too soon, though; check my quote to see for yourself. I presume by the time 2038 rolls around SMF will have received an upgrade to allow for larger date lengths...

Oh good,

I really don't know how timestamps work, I was just replacing it with all 9s and I thought it was a constantly counting number and all 9s was as far as it could go
