Q&A Nicety?

by footpad (Monsignor)

While reading Q&A this morning, it occurred to me that it might be nice to see when Answers were posted.

For example, take a look at How do I get the local internet IP address?. You can see when the question was posted, but there's no similar information on the answers provided.

Since it's possible to find answers via Search, it seems like this would be useful information, especially if an answer is contributed well after the original question.

This can be handled as simply as the root question handles it, e.g. Answer: <title> contributed by <whoever> on <whenever>.

Just a thought...

--f

P.S. FTR, I did use Super Search to see if the idea had been submitted previously, but didn't find anything directly relevant. Of course, I may have missed it.

usemodperl remembers the hilarious merlyn bot
[usemodperl]: perl is not broken, perl is being broken by the web being broken by https, for the love of banking apps on free wifi at coffee shops or something...
[Veltro]: Wondering, would it be so hard to write a small application that you can access using http which forwards the request over web ussing ssl?
[Veltro]: are there not even tools for that?
[usemodperl]: the breakage is so fresh i guess not, so it's up to us! :-)
[usemodperl]: someone has yet to make that future famous free http to https proxy written in perl and supported by ads, paypal, patreon, etc to make millions of dollars a minute!
[Veltro]: Why would this be fresh, I recon this is stuff that happens all the time (not Perl per se)
