Proposed change to URL structure April 24, 2007 6:25 PM Subscribe
It would be neat if the UTC date and time of postings could be incorporated into their URLs. For example,
http://metatalk.metafilter.com/14082/Metafilter-Shoutoutcould appear as
http://metatalk.metafilter.com/20070525-2249/Metafilter-ShoutoutThere would likely need to be an additional digit after the datecode to disambiguate between threads posted nearly simultaneously. The benefit would be to let people see how old threads are when mousing over links to them.
