Can we have years, please? November 10, 2001 8:18 AM   Subscribe

Threads are identified with a day and month, but not a year. Now that there are a couple years' worth of archive, it happens that people link to an older thread from a previous year, and when one goes to that page, all we see is something like "March 30." In many cases, placing the thread in its proper timeframe is extremely relevant. Is there any way to mark these with the year so that we know if we are dealing with March 30, 2001, March 30, 2000, March 30, 1999? This will only become more of a problem as the years go by.

[Never one to shirk my responsibility and the call to arms...]

This has been mentioned before (and many other times since), but of course without a requested feature list, it's tough to know that without an exhaustive search.

Note: I'm not attacking you, I'm just re-prompting Matt for a requested feature list
