    Morning!

    As I search through the forum for solutions/ideas, one thing that is truly beneficial is the original date posted that shows with each thread listed on the Home page.

    On other forum topic pages like "Black Hat Tools" though, that piece of info isn't there. It makes it harder to evaluate if the thread is still viable or if it's out dated without opening each individual thread. For example, info on CL/Adsense/google/Youtube/FB/SB... etc have evolved so much in the last few year (months/days even in some cases) that when you look for solutions, you would be best served focusing on the most recent threads, not necessarily just recent posts.

    There is an advanced search option to return sorted by Thread Start Date, but that would require an advanced search for results and is not beneficial/practical when looking by forum topic.

    There are other indicators of a posts viability, such as stars and overall number of posts. And not all old posts are completely dead just because they aren't "New". After all, even an older thread can lay the groundwork for a basic understanding of something or still provide an insight to a topic. But having that original date returned with the listing would help make the search/topic listing a whole lot more useful as people try to search for current information.

    Could the original post date be added to all places where a list of threads is returned?

    Thanks!
