Doesn't work. Thanks for looking it up though, I wasn't sure if it was what was originally used or not. I've tried several time stamps variations, newer and older, both get reset. The only way to get rid it of for sure, is to have an app, check the current time, convert it to Unix, 1-5 mins earlier (maybe upto 30) than the current time, and place it in there before the log in. And then, I'm not even positive, it's not also kept on the server-side as well for comparision. But I will test it out, I just didn't want to have to wait 30+ minutes each time, in case, it was synced to the server-side. Resetting it a few minutes, and immediately relogging back in, does keep it from popping up though.
EDIT: And it is unlikely, it's synced with the server, as erroneous time stamps, and one of significantly different times, bring it up after immediate relogs, but don't if you leave it alone, or use very short time difference ones.
This was changed on the last big UI change patch. As I had heard of others turning it off, but didn't real care myself. But, since I knew the old way didn't work any more, I thought I'd see what could be done. I didn't figure it any of it out, until today, when I started working on it. I had only heard it was an INI setting to get rid of it, the old way.
It's actually kinda of nice to see friends on other servers pop up on the welcome screen, when you play on multiple servers, so you're not spending 10+ minutes trying to remember all their alts names to see if and what toon they're on.
Anyway, next few times I log in, after 30+ minutes, if I remember, I'll try resetting it a few minutes off the current time, just to be sure, it's not duplicated on the server-side.
