Not sure if this question belongs here, but why doesn't the year for the June dates show up on this page? https://stackoverflow.com/help/badges/3109/sheriff

Those dates are less than a year ago; come June 2014 they'll earn their '13.

Until then they are considered recent enough that you don't need to be reminded in what year they fell, since those dates are always in the past.

To be precise, the year is hidden until the date is at least 360 days in the past.

    @Downvoter - Why do you think this is incorrect? June 2014 isn't here yet, so the implication is that it is referring to the only possible June (2013). This answer seems pretty spot on to me. – Travis J Feb 18 '14 at 0:47

    Questions and answers (random example) show the year no matter what if it's not the current year. This appears to be an inconsistency in the display of dates. – animuson Feb 18 '14 at 0:53
  • @animuson: it could be that the 'no year until 360 days in the past' rule was rescinded but the devs missed the badge pages.. – Martijn Pieters Feb 18 '14 at 0:55
  • This mechanism can also be seen in the list of favorites, bounties, and questions in a profile. – Travis J Feb 18 '14 at 1:02
  • Just for posterity: Jeff's comment is from July 2009, and like you said things seem different on different parts of the site. For posts, years are indeed shown if the calendar year is not the current year. Today, the last December 2013 question shows "asked Dec 31 '13 at 23:02". I assume it did the same on January 1st. – Arjan Mar 23 '14 at 8:41
