Show actual dates on Top and other date range pages

Rather than this for /top

We should show the actual dates instead, like Product Hunt does:

That way we could drop the calendar glyph, which never looked that good anyway, and it’s clearer what exactly you’re looking at when you select a time range on Top or in the User Directory.

(of course with the down arrow glyph to indicate drop-down-y-ness, not pictured in the above mocks)

@neil can you take this, since you’ll be touching the user directory soon, which has a very similar layout for time ranges?

For the monthly and yearly periods, they go back 1 month ago and 1 year ago, so the actual dates will need to be something like “May 30 - Today” and “June 2014 - Today”.

Yeah that’s fine. Also add quarter time range, since there’s precious little between “month” and “year”.

Ok this is in, in preliminary form, for /top. Needs a few tweaks (All time should show dates) and the Quarter (4 month) time range to be added.

Also bear in mind we want this same behavior on the /users pages as well.
