Right now if a post was made at least one year in the past, it's listed as having been posted X years ago.

This completely kills the context of posts that reference seasonal activities wherein the post references time relative to the time of the post 'I did this X months ago and this happened' or 'I tried this yesterday and it's working surprisingly well this time of year.'

Can this be fixed? Can each post list the date it was posted rather than a generic 'period of time ago'?

If you hover your mouse over "1 year ago", it will show you a date/time.

Or switch to the old view. This is something they took away with the 'shiny' new version...

I hear that later you might be able to get it back as a special priv. for Pie-having users though. Yay...
