New time stamp for posts

  1. I've just noticed the new forum feature that shows how long ago the last post in a thread had been posted. It now gives the time in minutes, hours or weeks ago up to about one month before reverting to the old date format.

    Although my usual philosophy is, "If it's new, it must be bad," :) I kind of like it.

    I like it :grinthumb
    Because if you are in a different time zone, you now know how long ago the post was made, instead of calculating the time somehow (which I use to do)

    It's going to take some getting used to, but I think it is for the better as well.

    Nice addition Julio!

    Glad to hear you like the change. Just like you it's taking me some time to get used to but I believe it's for the better.

    I also decided not to comment anything on the change and wait for feedback to see how that turned out.

    I thought I noticed something different, but wasn't sure, I guess it was subtle enough I was afraid I'd look like an ***** if I asked about it. I did also seem to notice a size change in gmail in Opera on my Mac, so those 2 things combined kept me quiet. Now I think maybe only I imagined the gmail part :)

    I like the change though.
