Why can't we change our join date?
Posted by Cobra 427 on Thursday, March 03, 2016 3:10 PM

Why is that my join date says "joined June 2015" when it's obvious that I joined in SEPTEMBER 2009?! I posted my first post in the "FOUR FOOT X-WING (ILM Tribute)"  thread the very same day (Sept. 18)! My Grandma was in the nursing home almost a month when I came here to this forum which is why I'll always remember that time.  I forgot about the forum, and for two years I was away, but I never left permanently, or told anyone that I was leaving, or had my account suspended for any reason! Why can't finescales staff change it back, or let me change it to reflect when I actually joined? It may be a small request that may seem to be unimportant to them but at least someone can change it for me, or let me change it myself.

I see that now. Thank you, Sir and God bless! Or I should say Modeling God bless! It means a lot to me to be a member here, and I don't want to change anything on my end if it doesn't have to. I lost the use of my main computer for over two years and I haven't been on any of the modeling forums for all that time only to come back and have to start all over again only makes for a frustrating time! My Grandma died last week, and we buried her this last tuesday (March 1st). I'm still trying to get over this, and get back to modeling. I'm willing, but not ready yet. I need to since a distraction is desperately needed.

The nursing home didn't even tell my mother that Grandma was in the hospital - my aunt, and uncle went there to visit is how we found out. My mother had power of attorney so she should've been notified immediately, but wasn't! However, she went to see her, but she wasn't very coherent. Sometime within the last two weeks that she was in the hospital she began to have trouble breathing. Before that it was her kidneys. A week ago monday they put her into hospice since nothing would help. She stopped eating, and drinking so they figured that it would be days before she wouldn't be able to go on any more. They were right! The last time I saw was the day she died - I was standing beside her when this happened. It was 12:20 central time. The last time I talked to her was in the nursing home. This would be the last time we ever talked again. This is the only link between us in memory now. Thank you again.

Chris,

Glad I could help. I found modeling was just the distractive therapy I needed after my mother died a couple of years ago. I hope it works for you.
