Find your cake day (account creation date) on Reddit
The past couple of days I’ve seen a raise in “cake date” posts on reddit. I’m probably behind the trend on this one, but I never paid attention to the dates I open an account. Nevertheless… I had to find mine, so here’s a quick tutorial:
- Log in into your Reddit account (d’oh!),
- Go to RSS feeds preferences page (hit “preferences” link and then the “RSS feeds” tab) or use this link straight on,
- Copy the JSON link for the e.g. links you’ve liked (it’ll have a format like: http://www.reddit.com/user/user_name/liked.json?feed=some_big_code&user=user_name)
- Paste the link in the browser, replace “liked.json” with “about.json” and load the link.
At the end you’ll have a JSON string with a key “created_utc“. The number corresponding to it is the creation date as a timestamp. You can convert it easily using e.g. the Epoch converter.
Enjoy and gi’z us a poke if you like
