  • Paul Campbell,

    I think that that's true for pretty much any mafia

  • ChrisW,

    Beneficiary's mite contributed, in belated appreciation.

    Those improvements and tweaks to the site revamp you're looking towards on the strength of payment towards your Cactus Lab bill - would that include reverting to plain display of the NZ time stamp on the discussion posts? I recall this was raised by several posters in the original thread. An everchanging "3 hours ago", "3 days ago" etc is so much less informative especially after the first hour, inconvenient for reference, and makes it harder to follow the discussion dynamics especially if reading a thread a little or a long time after real-time.

  • nzlemming,

    As was noted in that thread, if you hover over it, ti gives the actual time and date of the post. I've come to like the "x period ago" approach, myself.

    if you hover over it, it gives the actual time and date of the post.

    and it could just as easily show the calculated time on hover. But perhaps I'm overestimating how easy it is for most site visitors to work out differences on the spot. We're all different so any blanket solution is a compromise. I guess in a future version that type of thing could be a remembered personal preference.

    Ah, now there's a good thought for the Gods of Cactus. Personally, I'm still feeling pleased they managed to fix italics.
