Quirk with Guestbook Auto-Lock [CLOSED]

A few years ago, a feature that auto-locks user's guestbooks after 3 years of inactivity was implemented.

Quote:
Guestbooks now auto-lock if the user has not logged in for three years.

I was looking at old profiles out of curiosity/nostalgia, and it seems like it doesn't work for profiles that haven't logged in, and/or have 0 gems.
Several of the oldest accounts have no activity dates, but have some gems and locked guestbooks. Someone in the linked threads claimed that was because of some sort of wipe, so that doesn't seem inconsistent with what I've been seeing.

The first 0 gem user, dragon allen (the one and only), does have a locked guestbook, but everything afterwards I've seen has guestbooks unlocked.

Some examples:

http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=380
http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=490 versus http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=491
http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=1781 versus http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=1782
http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=3849
http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=7284
http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=18887
Comparing two different accounts that have been inactive for almost 3 years.
Also some choice usernames: http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=1522 and http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/profile.php?user=1523

It's a very tiny issue, so I'm not desperately begging for a fix (the amount of examples was mostly from finding it funny to look at old usernames). Bringing this up mostly because I thought it was kinda interesting.

That's a very strange glitch, for sure.

If someone hasn't logged in at all for three years, I doubt they'll start logging in now. XP
Nice job finding the glitch!

From the code history it seems I added that bug specifically... smilie

Well I don't see the point in having guestbooks for accounts that haven't logged in so I'll just set it to only appear after a login.

Thanks.

If for any reason you're not completely satisfied, I hate you.

Oh nice, good job on fixing it dark.
Guess I'll close the thread.
