Red Brick created the topic: Last Post "time ago" vs. actual date
I prefer using a date and time for the last post of a forum topic rather the number of minutes, hours, days, or weeks ago that a post occurred. With the date, I can simply hit "Control F", type in a specific date (such as today's or any other date) , and find all the posts for that date. In other words, if I've not looked at the Forums since December 1, I can type in Dec 2. If the cursor highlights a post from Dec 2, I can look at it. If nothing is hightlighted, I can change the "2" to a "3" and so on until I get a hit. With the current system, I have to look at each Forum and see if the number of hours ago is before or after last day I looked. It's a matter of letting the computer do the work.

I have modified the forum settings to show the actual time/date of the posts.
