I'd like the timestamps on posts to show exact times

Sun Aug 27, 2017 12:16 pm

Even though I set my preffered date format in my User Account Controls as 'Month, Day, Year, Time', all forum posts still show their posting time as being 'Moments ago, Last year, etc..' and I need to mouse over them to see the exact time posted. Is there a setting I'm missing to be able to see the exact timestamp at a glance? If not would it be possible to add this option? Every other forum I use displays the exact time a post was made (even facebook, twitter, etc), so having this immediately displayed as opposed to a vague time seems more natural to me.

Agreed! I've followed the instructions posted by the mods, and nothing seems to change the display. As I write this, the OP shows as "15 hours ago" unless I hover over it, then it shows "27 Aug 2017 08:16" The default should show the actual time of the post.

Even better would be for this field to be totally customisable by the member and saved as part of the member's profile (so it works whatever device is used to access the site).

I suggest this because you'll never get everyone to agree to a single format for the field.
