Just wondering why SSD doesn't show the year that a question or answer was posted. Sometimes I search, see the date for the replies and have no idea if its from this year or last year. Is it better to bump a dead discussion or start a new one?

I think this info should be in the FAQ

Thanks ~Jon~

I think that the year only shows when it is not this year. In other words, your question currently says "asked 9 mins ago". Tomorrow it'll say "asked yesterday", in three months it'll say "asked Oct 5th" and next year it'll say "asked Oct 5th 2011".

Check this link and you'll see the first question in the list is dated 2010, and the rest just with the month (as they were asked this year).

At least, that's how I think it works..

  • Thanks. That was the first time I'd seen a year on a post, I think I'd rather see the year for anything past a month ago.
