This question already has an answer here:

First, I love SO.
But, how can someone know how old a question is if the year is missing from all the dates? It seems important to know how old a question is. Am I missing it somehow? Thanks.

SO hasn't been around for a year yet. When it has been, the year will be visible in the dates. (It's actually already there in the mouseover text.)

Whoa! Didn't know that! – Jared Harley Jul 26 '09 at 4:34

it is implemented but dormant in the code until dates are >= 360 days from the original dates.
