When I open the Stack Overflow main page, all the questions have a 'last active' time. Right after the page is loaded, it will say, for example, 5m ago. If I let the page sit until it updates the times, it will say something like 5 mins ago. This seems pretty inconsistent. Shouldn't it just stick with min(s) immediately on load?

Update: The bug appears to be fixed, in that the main page displays the m form consistently. However, the other pages (e.g. stackoverflow.com/questions) display min(s). Is there a reason for the difference? It seems inconsistent as well.


This will be fixed in the next deploy.
