date shown at top of posts

Something that is not a bug, but that I find makes the posts difficult to read, is that at the very top of each post there is a date... but it is not the date of the post! It is the poster's "member since" date. In order to see the dates of the posts, you have
to scan down a few lines. So it is hard to tell at a glance when each post was posted. I think it would make more sense to have the date at the top of each post be the date of the post. The "member since" date is not really all that important, yet it is the most prominent. Perhaps it could be moved to the left, next to the avatar (like it was before) and the date of the post moved to the top?

I actually agree with you 100%. It's one of those things I never noticed during development, but while scanning all these posts, my eyes keep looking at the member sign-up date and I have to try really hard to find the post date.

I'll work on this.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Yeah, I've noticed a large blank area under the avatar which would be perfect to place all of information that is currently at the top of each post. Kind of like this, it combines to old way with the new features, pus it solves the problems with confusing dates. Of course, you can center the information under the avatar.

Oh, I was just curious if you liked my suggestion is all.

That's one of several options I've been considering. I have a designer who's been working with me on the interface, so we'll come up with something that works.
