Date difference in timestamps cannot be less than 15 minutes to be legitimate.

I can see that. I just felt that the data could've used some context or a conclusion.


If I make a suggestion to automate this check and remove these people without data, the thread would be closed and marked as "not another one of these again sigh"


There be a problem, someone should fix it.  <3


This is sort of the head of the problem. If a person succeeds here, they move onto the "harder methods". Kill the head here and they won't move on. It becomes harder to detect the other methods.

I have missing timestamps on this game, and If that were to lead me to being reported, I'd be upset.


Don't worry. Missing timestamps are in no way your fault/a bad thing. It just happens when you first play a game on PS3/Vita before connecting to PSN.  :)
