All imported comments* on the newly designed blog date from June 29, 2015. Furthermore, they are out of order. In this Winterbash post, it is clear to see that earlier comments are replying to later ones. Maybe some people find reverse chronological order easy to read, though I doubt it, but presenting comments in reverse order with no indication of that because they all show the same timestamp is just horribly confusing.

* It looks like all existing comments were imported into the new blog as part of the static content. All comments henceforth use Disqus.

  • And the post date is weird too. Maybe some date conversion gone wrong. (Not 2015, but 2009, same date however) – Patrick Hofman Jul 2 '15 at 9:53

    Well, it was all migrated to the new system. The bug is simple, they show date of migration i.e. creation of the record, instead of original posting. :/ – Shadow9 Jul 2 '15 at 10:46

I've just submitted a pull request for this, the USAsians are out today for Independence Day, but I'm sure Jon will merge and re-import as soon as he gets time next week!

Thanks for the report :)

UPDATE: That's pushed to production, all the comments use the date of posting rather than the date we generated them.
