Where has the date posted from the stat box gone? Answered

I have not been able to find the date posted on the new instructables. I sure it is there but I do not see it in the regular place.
Thanks for the location info...

Dates and times seem to be of little value here.

It is next to impossible to get threads in the right context because postings show up in whatever order they like.
Someone might put it to a bug in the stats, I put it to the relectance to use proper software for the job ;)

He's talking about dates instructables are posted not forum/Q&A threads. If your not seeing threads posting chronologically then you may want to clear your java cash. They are list chronologically. You find lots of older threads pop up cause people do a google search and that thread comes up so they reply to it. Some times recent replies get deleted leaving the older thread at the top of the list. Even though the comment is gown the thread was recently updated and stays.

I have been missing the posted dates for the Instructables and feel they are very important. When searching for a topic and downloading the instructable, you may find the it is too old and parts or software related to the project are no longer available.

Yup, I was wondering about that too. I think the rationale might have been to make the what more important than the when. Unfortunately, it has the side-effect of obfuscating who's borrowing from whom, and makes the use-license an even trickier subject. Of course, I could be wrong, and the whole thing is just a coding error.

No posted date is not shown on the instructable. But the instructables are list Chronologically. You can get a good idea of when it was posted based on the oldest commnet.
