I know Date stamp issue has been discussed a lot, but I need to raise one more flag, now that Stackoverflow is (how many years old?) I, as a developer care more about when the answer was posted as to what the answer is, yes, technology is moving that fast!
The current time stamp looks like this: Feb 6'12
And if it is within this year: Apr 8 at 21:00
This is my own personal opinion that it is confusing to read that every time. I really need to know one thing at a glance: Is it current? within last year? or year 20yy?
If it is current it means I can still post comments and get interactions, if it is within last year it means the answer is still valid, if older than that I am much more forgiving to obsolete answers. I am not suggesting you remove details of date at all, but 6'12? that (in my quick mind) sounds like 6 inch!
What is wrong with good old Feb 6, 12 and Apr 8
Why do you display time for something that happened a week ago?
Thank you for the awesome work :)
