Description (last modified by hans) (diff)

In the following pages timestamps should be formatted so that people can see how long ago a resource was created or modified:

  • What's going on?
  • Group forum
  • History page for content / method / tool

Timestamps should be displayed in the following way:

  • 1 min ago
  • 2 mins ago
  • ...
  • 59 mins ago
  • 1 hour ago
  • 2 hours ago
  • ...
  • 23 hours ago
  • 1 day ago
  • 2 days ago
  • ...
  • 6 days ago
  • 1 week ago
  • 2 weeks ago
  • 3 weeks ago
  • 4 weeks ago
  • 1 month ago
  • 2 months ago
  • ...
  • 11 months ago
  • 2006/03/28

In the byline we should display the exact time (no need to change anything there).

This is basically the same as in Dpreview forums: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/forum.asp?forum=1017

Differences:

  • they have also "this minute", I think for us it is ok if everything less than 2 minutes is "1 min ago"
  • the have US format for dates older than one year
