[DUPLICATE] Thread creation date in forum and sub-forum pages


In the forum and sub-forum pages, what would you think about inserting a new column entitled "Thread creation date" after "Rating" and before "Last Post"?
Otherwise, insert this information below the thread title next to the OP (no need for a column in that case)?
Option 1 could be better though because one could sort the column.

The date that a post was created appears with the post just above the poster's name.

The date of the first post in a thread is the thread creation date. The date that a post was created appears with the post just above the poster's name.

If someone doesn't notice it there, I an skeptical that a new column will help.

Hmm...it seems that you're talking about information visible only when the thread is open, aren't you?
I'm talking about information to be added in the (sub-)forum view so you could see all the thread creation dates in one place. There, for the moment being, only the date of the last post creation is displayed.

This suggestion is similar to the one I made in https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ge-4175631889/ although I didn't see the need to sort on create date...I just wanted to be able to see it, mostly to see a necroposts without opening the thread...

So, while I'd like the create date of the thread (that of the first post, as stated) to be shown on the forum page, I don't support the idea of a separate column. Sorry.

Sorry, I didn't notice your thread. My bad. I'm marking this as duplicate.
I'm ok, even if this suggestion doesn't lead to a new column. My point is that the information should be displayed somewhere, so beside the thread author seems ok for me.
