What do you think about instead of it telling you "2 hours ago" or "yesterday" or "1 year ago" that it instead told you the exact date and time. Now being an experienced user in the OpenStudy Feedback group, I don't want to hear excuses such as "There might be more lag." What do you think are the pros and cons of this feature?

Yeah I wrote a long reply and gave up on trying to make it make sense XD

Besides users asking why all the time messes up, like a comment before it says "a few moments ago" and the comment after it says "2 minutes ago" ;p Also, it helps you know what date a post was made. For example, a user tags you 23 hours ago. Was it 23 hours and 29 minutes and got rounded down? Or was it 22 hours 29 minutes and got rounded up? And I was online 22 hours ago and wanted to know when he actually tagged me without having to use inspect element to figure it out.

I think it's a really good idea, but I hate to say... there's kinda no point

  • TheSmartOne
Why not have the precise thing instead of a rounded number?

  • pooja195
Im not a big fan of this idea i think they can be improving on other things. However it would be cool!

For example, a 6 month old post could actually be only 5 months and 16 days old or actually 6 months and 14 days old :p Or a 3 year old post is actually only a 2 year old and 4 month old post :p

Pooja, they can be improving a lot of stuff. This suggestion is basically about improving something already set in place too. And if they aren't improving anything what is the point? We got to keep them busy c:
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
Haha yes, it would be nice to know the exact time, but I don't think we HAVE to keep them busy XD
samanthagreer
  • samanthagreer
im not sure abotu this because of the different time zones
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
Oh true. Maybe you could set it to your own time zone?
mLe
  • mLe
umm... you can see the exact date and time by using inspect element...
mLe
  • mLe
@jaynator495 can add to list of features to add in extension, this one shouldn't be too hard
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
mLe, I know but why have to open up inspect element each time, dig through the codes, and find the dates for each thing you want to see the date and time for? :p
horsegirl27
  • horsegirl27
hmmm, true I do think it could be nice to have..
mLe
  • mLe
you right click *on* the "14 minutes ago" thing and the inspect element should land you there

*facepalm* I know that Emily, but that's too much work for each comment. I mean the chats have it too, why not for posts? xD

I didn't read everything, but it seems like this would speed up OS since in order to calculate the time ago posted the exact date and time must be evaluated.
FibonacciChick666
  • FibonacciChick666
I do feel that the system currently does not utilize that method though. So since we have wayyyyy many time zones, it probably works like a stop watch. Every comment starts a new watch that is stuck in code.

i'd personally like to see this in place, but i also don't really see the purpose (other than my own reasons)

You can't use inspect element on the iOS app for OS, nor mac (devices I use). I think that this idea is truly useful and should be considered.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Or is there a substitution for that in MacBooks?
acxbox22
  • acxbox22
yea the exact date is great for posts greater than a month old and for posts under a month old they can display the date like they have been doing
anonymous
  • anonymous
whenever i type or post something it says i posted it 3 hours ago...
sammixboo
  • sammixboo
I like it ;u;
iGreen
  • iGreen
If anything, it'll reduce lag..I like the idea..I thought of it before too. Plus, I think those other one's are glitched..
iGreen
  • iGreen
Or they were
iGreen
  • iGreen
Yeah, they seem okay now.
EclipsedStar
  • EclipsedStar
The other one is indeed a glitch. This idea is a bit pointless in my opinion. So, say for example, a user posted something on March 21, 2012 on 7:21pm PST. Do people really need that information? No educational value included, just a date and time. Do users really care about a time a post was made weeks ago? Any filing purposes needed? Nope, in my opinion, unless there is a hidden motive that I do not see. So this idea is just to keep the devs busy? They seem really busy as it is...
iGreen
  • iGreen
So you're saying we shouldn't have anything?
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
Your reply is a bit pointless in my opinion.
iGreen
  • iGreen
^ That's kinda harsh..
Jaynator495
  • Jaynator495
The exact date and time would take 23 seconds for me to implement it into the extension, but personally i think its a tad pointless... i mean sometimes i would like it, but i dunno... up to you...

\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @TheSmartOne Your reply is a bit pointless in my opinion. \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) My reply?
EclipsedStar
  • EclipsedStar
And no, @iGreen. I didn't say we didn't have to not have anything...I was just stating that it's not really needed as there's no educational or funding purpose, that's all.
EclipsedStar
  • EclipsedStar
* @iGreen tagged the alt with the dot...
Jaynator495

es, why u no use my extension x'd

  • TheSmartOne
So EclipsedStar, we have chats, what is the educational purpose of that?
