Calling all Cards!

Having just mailed my cards for Project G.I.V.E. M.E. (that is, Great Internet Valentine Exchange, Metafilter Edition), and having had at least as much fun as I did with the winter holiday cards, I'm wondering if there's enough momentum and interest for another project. [more inside]

Famous Dates in FPP History

NEVAR FORGET the Microsoft Kin!!!1!
An FPP that will live in infamy. -> Birds
Is it "Back, and to the left," or, "Back and to the left"?
Today's FPP: it is important that you wear underpants.

You get the idea -- the FPP# corresponds to the famous date, written as [MMDDYY]. What are some more famous dates' FPPs?

Another feature request

Could the 'Joined' field in your profile behave like the 'Birthday' field? Can the date I joined link to other users that joined on the same day/date?

Pony: For "Most favorited" is it possible to put in the dates for the 7day and 30day view?

Sitewide option for relative dating? (THIS IS NOT INCEST-RELATED, LIVEJOURNAL PEOPLE)

I find the "7 minutes ago" style of dating found on the "My Activity" to be far easier to parse than the normal way it is listed in threads. Any chance of a profile switch to enable that site-wide with the detail time available on a hover or something?

Timezone trouble

I've got my timezone set to UTC but Meta thinks it's 0.25 on the 14th when it's actually 23.25 on the 13th. Is this a 2k7 date hack that's fecked the site up for all non-Americans, or has the time gone wrong for everyone?

Pony Request: Dates/Times on the MetaTalk RSS feed?

sometime in 1999

What happened pre January 28, 2000 that caused all earlier members than 278 to have joined 'sometime in 1999' v 279 (both absolutely useless, by the way) - the MetaTalk archives started March 3, 2000 so there is no obvious record of what happened.

Daylight saving comment problem

MarshallBrain's comment on this thread keeps sinking to the bottom despite there being latter posts.

Timeouts in search

In my experience, the exact phrase search for AskMe usually times out when searching through "answers only" or "questions and answers." I assume this is simply due to the size of the data. I'd hate to see this functionality disappear, as Google is pretty useless for AskMe. If a dedicated MetaFilter Search Cluster is not an option, perhaps we could have a way to specify date ranges?

What's up with the date headers on AskMe?

Right now I see three "January 23" headings in AskMe, atop three "January 22" headings. Prior days display just fine. What's the story, Morning Glory?

multiple-date-headers thing again

ask.mefi is doing the multiple-date-headers thing again. There's a "November 6" header above each of the first three posts.

Every day is groundhogs day, er, cinco de mayo

When I view the front page while logged out, each new post has its own "May 5" date header.

Today's date is showing in 3 different places on Metafilter

No big deal really, but the Mefi front page is showing today's date at three different points in the postings column.

Bug in mycomments dropdown

When viewing MeFi in "my comments" or "most comments" mode, selecting "date" from the pull-down menu does nothing. I have to go to "recent comments," then select "date" when in that mode to get it to work. Using IE 6.0.26 on XP, if relevant.

useful to add entry-dates on user comment pages?

Just an idea: would it be slightly more useful to add entry-dates on user comment pages?

Minor quibble with drop-down menu

Here's a minor quibble: when you sort the front page by "recent comments" the drop-down menu goes to "recent comments" accordingly and you can then select "date" and the page will reset.

However, if you choose "most comments" or "my comments" the menu goes automatically to "date" so you can't reset the page to date-ordered posts in one click. You have to, for instance, select "recent comments" and then select "date".

This is probably very taxing on the server. Is there any cleverer way round it?

Please add year to date field (redux)

How about including the year along with the date info on posts? This post got two new hits today, but we wouldn't know that if Ufez hadn't used the words "three years later".

Minor bug in "My Comments" sorting

Minor bug in "My Comments" sorting which predates the new server. When you pick "My Comments" the drop down on the newly sorted page defaults to "date", therefore you can't go back to sort by date from sort by my comments.

Mefi is just displaying the date

Site is just displaying the date - no links no threads. MeTalk looks ok. Its been like this for at least 15 mins.
posted by skallas on Oct 7, 2001 - 4 comments

Expand the timestamp to include the year, please.

I know this had been requested here before, but if it is not too much trouble, can we have a year stamp added to the time stamp for each post?

Case in point, MiguelCardoso's this post was posted on the same date, but two years after the original thread started.

Add year to older posts

Here's a little suggestion... On threads older than 6 months, list the year beside the month and day on every comment. Why? Because I think it'd be useful on the rare posts where comments span a year or more like this or this.

Please add years to date field

This is, I hope, easy: years in date fields? MeFi has been around long enough so that when I look at a link to a thread that says "March 4" it could be 2000 or 2001. And, of course, it's only going to get worse.

Here's an easy win: dates on search results.

No last day

When I check the Metafilter archives, I see every day of the month except for the last day. In other words, no September 30, no July 31. Has anybody else noticed this?
