  1. Eily,
    It drives me “nuts” that neither you nor any of your sports & other reporters, ever put a DATE on any of your reports.
    PLEASE in addition to issuing your report as # 971 add a DATE. Whether one reads the reports every week or ocassionally, a date will provide some perspective.
    Same for those sports events coming up or results, one never knows whether you are reading about something that happened last week, a month ago or a year ago, without an identifying date.


  2. Hi Stella,
    I agree with your point that the lack of a date on the reports has been an annoyance for many. It was one of the things that needed addressing when the site was being changed. The date and time has been added in two places:
    1. On the left of every article heading you’ll see the date of that post, and
    2. Just above the comments for every article, you can see the date and time of the post.
    It would be good also if the dates were the articles, so we’ll have to chase after the authors to put them in.
    Hope this was helpful, and thanks for the feedback. I’ll forward this onto Eily regardless.
