All references to the ring activations being 100,000 years ago have been based on the "100,000 local years" on Delta & Alpha halos. Since these rings orbited gas giant planets, maybe it is possible that these worlds had much longer planetary cycles & therefore the ring activations occured long, long ago in Earth years?

JS: 100,000 years. Give or take.

HSP: When did the Forerunner die off - in human years?

JS: Inscrutable alien beings with problematic ethics never die... they just fade away. But if what you're asking is: when did the Forerunner take their "Great Journey," that would be about 100,000 years ago - around the time our Homo Sapien ancestors decided to migrate out of Africa. Mind you, that's a hotly debated paleontological theory.
