Why have they been changed on the index page from the actual time posted to 'posted ** hours/mins/secs ago'? :S When refreshing the page, it's not possible to use as a marker between read/unread posts because it's dynamic. Is there any reason why it can't go back to the old format? If it can't or the majority prefer it this way, would it be possible to have it as an option within user-defined?
It's really frustrating and made worse by the disappearance of the icon leading directly to the first unread post in a thread and the 'mark forum as read' facility. :( Are either of those going to be brought back?
