Orignal Post's Start Date?

(For the Horde!) #1

Let’s be clear. First, I don’t know how to use this site to its fullest extend. Second, maybe this is not supported.

Anyway, I am curious, if it is possible to display the the start date for a thread, not just the last reply. There are many advantages if this information is available. For one, people won’t accidentally reply to a 5 years post. Maybe this is not something we have to worry right now, but it will be nice to just put it in the back of our mind. Thanks.


methinks it would be a wonderful idea to either lock/autolock threads older than x years or have a blurb pop up when a user hits reply to ancient history
“The last post on this topic was 25 years ago, are you sure? Ctrl-Alt-Del”


The system is already configured to warn user when they reply to something more than a year old. We’ll see how well it works a year from now.
