Has anyone else noticed?

The labels on each post have been switched back to show the date and time of posting, not the "elapsed time" info that was shown when TRF2 was brought up. I don't know why such a silly little thing bugged me so much, but I would like to post a big Thank You! to our guys who do such a great job on TRF.

Does this mean we have to start calling this forum TRF 3?

I started noticing some thing was different but didn't make anything of it.

It is more confusing. Instead of saying the last post was 6 hours ago, it gives the date and I have to figure the difference. Change it back.

Looks like so far powderburner is the only one who likes this way. Check out the "Me no like" thread, seems everyone else including me wants to change it back.

Not everyone. I like the numbers--it's easier for me.

Much better with real time :)

When it said "xx minutes ago", that was virtually useless, since it was not xx minutes ago, but xx minutes ago whenever I last refreshed a page.
If some people really want xx (+ a random time) minutes ago, then make it a user option?

I wouldn't complain if it used "Today" and "Yesterday" though rather than full date, just so long as it has a proper time.

As I said over on the "Me No Like" thread, I like it better this way.

You can change your time zone in the User CP. Just go to "Settings & Options" and click "Edit Options" and scroll down to the "Date & Time Options".

I like knowing exactly what time a post was made, especially in follow-ups.
"Yesterday" is to general, 24 hrs in a day; "A Week Ago"7 days in a Week; "A Month Ago" 30 days in a month, etc.
I know doing the math may be a pain in the butt but at least you can do the math.
The other way, there's no math that can figure out when post was actually made when you're using relative time.
