How come the date disappears on older questions?

yahoo answers and many other sites and forums post the date the question was asked... why doesn't this site?

  • The site used to show the date up to a year old... older than that, it'd always say "Over a year ago".

    Now, dates older than a month ago no longer show. It does help make the recently asked questions more recognizable so people will answer the more relevant ones :-)

    • To me, a month seems an awfully early cut-off date, and who says older questions aren't relevant sometimes?

    • The questions never leave the site. Everyone still has access to the questions and can answer them. The date showing or not doesn't change that.

  • I guess they keep the dates until a certain amount of time when it is past a month they just leave them blank. I've noticed it with some users too - those who don't come on here for a few months they're "last seen" is blank and most of their questions and answers are not shown a select few only

  • The GaG database is more unorganized than the Wal-mart $5 DVD bins.

  • This is just another way GAG tries to make it as difficult as possible for users to find questions or comments. The search function is beyond worthless.

  • I'm not sure why. Maybe they'll fix that with the upcoming site revamp.
