Year should be added to post date at some point

I can see why you wouldn’t think of this until a year in, but now the problem is obvious. I just ran into a post from February 2013, but looking at the date I first thought “oh, this is super recent, how did I miss it?”


Change to DD Mmm / Mmm 'YY for post dates

The year is already on the post date. That’s what the '13 is. Notice the apostrophe. Standard year abbreviation convention when leaving off the century.

I did not get that at all. You save so little with the '13 as opposed to the full 2013, and suddenly everyone gets it.

Don’t you remember the Y2K bug? :smile:
