Please be patient while they work on alternatives for the time displayed in threads. If it doesn’t work the way we expect or need it to, they may need to revert back to the old system of showing time.

Thanks for the heads up. I like where you are trying to go with showing a concrete date and time of post instead of relative to current. Hopefully the computer gurus will get it functioning right.

I’m willing to put up with a bug or two when it is obviously targeted toward improving the site and responding to members’ suggestions.

Crossing my fingers it will work with the forum programming but so far it has multiple issues.

I will let y’all know as soon as I know more.

From what I can see, I LIKE IT!

Instead of just ”nnn days ago”, leaving you to an impossible Math problem to find out WHEN, this NEW method spells it outright!

You can EASILY SEE when the last activity WAS without any Mind Games required!

I think it is a GREAT CHANGE!

EDIT:
Suggestion… Leave out the word ”at” … just a space will do… it is implied… not required.

For the same Reason, remove the word “by”; just a space will do… it’s implied.

Now, if this does not fit into existing screens, may I suggest that you change the Screen Resolution Setting on your screen, which will tend to give you more room on the screen to see more! It’s really better than older resolutions.

Thank you, Cricket… GOOD JOB!

One of the things we have to figure out is making it show the time for each individual time zone.

OH, I thought that was handled in the system a long time ago…

edit: Looks like it knows what My Time Zone is… Looks good!

You could also save some space by just displaying “14” instead of “2014”... for the year… We know what century we’re in... :)

You might save yourself some grief by Removing “Today” and “Yesterday” replacing it with the actual Date that is being used for the rest… :)

Joe, I think you just happen to live in the same time zone as the servers. It shows two hours off of my local time.

For myself, Cricket, I’m not so worried about individual time zones—I can do the math. It might bug others that have more time differential, such as our European members. Of course, if it can show local time, that would be ideal, but even showing fixed Pacific time is better than the older way of relative time, IMHO.

I like that. Sometimes I look back at a project and wonder when I posted it. Then I would have do some figgerin’. Like the new date stamp. Thanks.

I am very in favor of this change. Makes it easier to see when posted. I’m with you Joe L.

Cricket – are the timestamps based on the user’s locale or the server’s timestamp?

I’m a BIG fan of the “New & Improved” time format!!!
Kudos to Cricket and the whole LJ-Techno-Geek-Squad!!!
