Is there still a way to tell when a member joined this site ? when you clicked onto to post a message to someone , it used to say how long they had been on this site for, is there anyway to find that out now ? thanks

Roughly you can

From 2007 the numbers have gone up approx. a million each year so I joined in 2007 and my membership number is 7 million + new members joining in 2013 have a membership number 13 million+

Before that it is harder but obviously longer than 6 years ago

If you put your curser over my profile pic you can see when I joined, but if you are sending a message via the search trees you will only see a can see my number at the bottom left of the screen if you hover your curser over my name

Hi Jax,

Thanks for getting back to me, I know if there is a post you can get the number, the amount of posts the person have submitted and when they joined. But if you want to send a message to someone then it is now a rough estimate of when they joined bu their membership number ?

Is this when you find a contact through the search trees?

If so, as I said just look at the number by their name after you have clicked on find out is only a rough estimate though

They have never said how long someone has been a member on there (not to my knowledge anyway)...only under the profile pic for the last two years

Yes, it is :) just wondered many times people are not replying to messages, helps to be able to know when they joined the site.
