A Conversation for h2g2 Read Only Beta

updated page dates

Post 1


In a forum under an article someone noted that the article had a date of 2001 but included references to 2007
that was because of the policy of keeping the original date when an article is replaced in the update process.

"I'm convinced that a "date last updated" field would be much use. If someone points out that a word is mispelled, we change it, and the date last updated would change, but it wouldn't mean the information in the entry was any more up to date."
I would hope the new version would do sometyhing to include a "last updated date in a clearly visible spot.
