Yeah, I thought it was a democracy and last time I checked, 12 was 4 more than 8.

Re: Let's play another game...

I like better the display time like "50 minuts ago" for 2 simple reasons:

Everytime I do a refresh to the main page I see what new posts have been done in 1 minute, 5 minutes or 50 minutes ago... and the second reason starts here, because it's faster for me to track new posts by how long I'm logged in instead at what time it was... I tend to forget the hours.

Warning Re: Let's play another game...

I have a cunning plan.

On the actual post, have the time.

On the forum/lounge summary page have how long ago the post was made.



For example, I just looked at the 'Arthur Scargill' http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/showt...t=21707&page=2 (Arthur Scargill) thread in the 155 OT lounge and Chris155 and Bazza put the same joke, but obviously very close together. I went to look at the time (too see if Bazza was a cheat ) and I couldn't tell. All it tells me is how many hours ago the post was made

Re: Let's play another game...

Give me actual time please...

Don't know why it's been switched back to ".... minutes ago", as this poll clearly shows actual time is preferred

Me? Cheat? (where's the angel smilie when you need it?)
Thanks for using that particular example Bob
Actually, I think I posted it a good 5 minutes after Chris, but that's coz it took so damn long to type it. No cheating involved.

Help Re: Let's play another game...

As I said, democracy failed on this thread... So it's not going to get changed, end of story!

And it's better the way it is now anyway!!!
