Post date display



Why do the dates on posts show as 1 hour ago or 2 days ago instead of appearing as a real date and time as it does on most other forums? Is there any way the user can set the date to display as a date and time instead of the vague X time amount ago? I think that would be much more useful.


Some conversation on this here.


Right ! But the site management has its separate opinion.
So I only wonder how long time it takes/
how many appeals should be written before they finally realize the obvious.
