Person API "created_at

For the PUSH endpoint of the PERSON api, will updated persons have the "created_at" property overwritten with the time that the update took place -- the same value also appearing in "updated_at"?  (for whatever reasons, this is the case in the API docs

Official response from

Hey Lilia,

The people#push endpoint allows you to update or create a person in your nation. When the request creates a person, the two fields you mentioned (created_at and updated_at) will be the same. In other cases where the request matches an existing person in your nation, the updated_at field will change (along with the other data passed in the request) on the person's profile.

I hope this helps clear things up!
