No posting dates listed on Instructables? Answered

Looking at some current Instructables in various categories, I don't see any posting dates listed on the project pages.

When did this start? Is there a secret way to learn the date? One of my biggest peeves on the web is press releases (or worse -- news stories) posted without a date -- one of the most important pieces of information! (the five W's of journalism, etc.).

Or is this just a Chrome issue?

There was a big (but unannounced) update around Sept 30th - it's thrown up a bunch of unexpected issues, and the development team are now in the throws of a major snagging exercise.

(If you find problems, issues or "unexploited features", please continue to flag them up for the dev team to see - the best place to do so is in the Bugs forum.)

I'm seeing the posting dates. It's right next to the view count. I'm using chrome on my tablet.

It seems to come and go. They might be playing around with the layout of the page again since I saw the viewcount and number of favorites disappear which is the section to the left of the date. One time the icon for the license was bigger than usual and no publish date. Seems you can click on the license icon to get a popup page of the license legalese. New stats breakouts have never worked since they rolled that out. I liked seeing the weird sites my ibles got referred by.
