Note: I know this is very similar to "Add year to question and answer dates.". I felt it deserved a separate question because I'm asking for a modification to the functionality requested in that question, and because that one is tagged status-completed and this one is not completed.
I find I have some issues with the current implementation of date display. Although it is obviously necessary to include the year with a date > 1 year ago, I think it should be added for every date > 11 months ago.
For instance, today is Aug 19, 2009.
Date Display Aug 16, 2008 Aug 16 08 Aug 16, 2009 Aug 16 Aug 26, 2008 Aug 26
This leaves August 16, 2009 looking a lot like August 26, 2008. I dislike the fact that I have to stop and reason that today is the 19th, and that 26
> 19, so that "Aug 26" must be last year.
