Future Perfect Progressive Tense ( ie, happened in the past, is still going
on, and may continue in the future) requires the present participle of the
verb. I don't think "registered" would work for this ( has been registering
doesn't make sense).
Gratuitous Arguments by Walker:
This might not be a bug; recruiting old players to defend against invasion
would be useful and has a certain romantic appeal. The judge should therefore
consider the benefit to the game of this interpretation. That said, if we
actually get invaded I shall eat my hat.
Judge ais523's Arguments:
I judge CFJ 3366 FALSE.
The buggy interpretation would be "there was a time at which the player
had been registered for 32 days continuously" if written in full. I can
buy "a player who was registered continuously for at least 32 days" as
buggy, but "a player who has been registered continuously for at least
32 days" doesn't really work with the buggy interpretation; there's a
missing verb for that. (Contrast "a player who has had been registered
continuously for at least 32 days", which is dubious grammar but has a
meaning closer to the buggy one.)
