|Resolved||cooltey||T274836 Expose last time a Talk Page has been edited|
Would it be possible to change the format "X days/weeks/months ago" to a straightforward date format like "17 February 2021, at 00:25 (UTC)", since this layout will be replaced/updated soon?
The screenshot here only shows the diff base on "weeks". If we like to show diff on "years", "days" or "months", we will need to add the strings to translate wiki and will also need to consider the RTL languages settings.
Feedback from @ppelberg
Thank you for the ping, @JTannerWMF. A question for you/y'all below...
I want to see the last time a subject has been edited on the summary Talk Page
Assuming the goal of this task is to help people assess the activity within particular subjects/conversations, what's leading y'all to consider exposing the last time any part of the page was edited?
For context: the Editing Team is also thinking about what could be done to help people more quickly and easily understand the activity within particular conversations. The way we're approaching this is by exposing conversation-specific metadata [i]. More context in T269950. You can also try an *early* prototype of this functionality on desktop here: https://patchdemo.wmflabs.org/wikis/aed6d63dcecc14ee69aa3c7405c32c4c/w/index.php/Talk:Main_Page.
i. E.g. when the latest comment was posted within the topic, the total number of comments posted within the topic, the total number of unique people who have posted a comment within a topi, etc.
