With the passing of time, information is leaking away

Imagine looking at a pile of old newspapers, and that their dates would have been replaced by just the month. That would be weird. This is what happens here.

I think that the removal of date and time from the contributions of this forum, is unfortunate, because in this way, information disappears which might be useful.

  • It might be easier to understand (or to "place in time-context") a discussion, when the date and time info of its contributions would still be present. It can make a big difference if the time distance between two contributions is 5 minutes, or 20 days. And it can make a difference to be able to see this.
  • When the date and time info would stay with a contribution, it would be possible to use date and time to refer to it.
At other forums, the date and time info stays with a contribution. If possible, I would suggest to do the same here too.
