Currently, only the thread author's name is given in the author column. Adding some date information will help identify thread age. I've chosen Month Year, which seems sufficient.
Example (centered in column):
Created attachment 75977 [details, diff]
Adds date information to 'Author' column of forum view template
Would something other than the use of class="gensmall" be more appropriate?
Created attachment 75978 [details, diff]
Adds code for date info in 'Author' column of forum view
I like the idea. Just a question about the proposed layout.
>Example (centered in column):
Why not just like in the "Last Post" column? More consisten layout imho

I agree with nixnut, a more consistent layout would be better, also I'd go for class="postdetails" instead of gensmall.

Template changes only, new date location & "consistent" format
Since the standard date format is being used, only template changes are necessary.

I like the idea, I wonder where you got it from? :p

Which part? In general, I've wanted the date for quite a while. My first submition was of my own design (month, year), since all I wanted was the relevant date info.
I didn't like the idea of adding the same date format as in the 'last post' column, which was preferred by others.
While browsing at bit-tech, I noticed the author under post title, and thought that made a good place to put the time too.

Updated to remove non-english unfriendly "by" word
submition/submission. Really, I can spell.
Just checked this patch in, thanks. It'll go live after testing.
Closing. Will reopen if any issues arise during testing.
