Does "<1m" make any sensitive difference to "1m"?

Just looking at this list:

Note how the first of the latest topics says <1m, then the next says 31m.

I might be mistaken, but it seems that for aestethics, <1m should be changed to 1m. This change will make little to no difference in meaning, but will remove that special case for timespans less than one minute.


Still "less sign" is used in the topics list when it makes little sense

I definitely agree with this and have thought so for some time. @eviltrout can we simplify this code to not do the less-than thing? It’s clearly info-porn in my book…

I’m kind of fond of “just now” for very recent posts.

I think “1m” is simpler, shorter, and less code / translations.

“just now” will become outdated too quickly and would need to be changed to “1m” eventually. Also, it does not fit into timestamps formatting of the older topics, which was one of the main points of this simplification proposal.

Find go hate on idea. I think it looks nicer and reads nicer. I’ll go off in a huff now.

(Not really. :slight_smile:)

For the sake of bike shedding, we could round down and show 0m for posts <1m ago.
