I think one thing that’d be helpful on this hellsite would be time-stamps on posts on mobile like when you go on the app. 

If I go on someone’s blog on my phone because I saw someone else say something about them (or a reblog of one of their posts comes across my dash) and I want to know the full story, I literally have no idea if what this person is saying has anything to do with anything recent unless they or someone else dates the post in in the text or tags.

I mean, I also think that some things are relevant to talk about ages after they were posted (like so many racists in and out of fandom never change so at this point, using their posts as a “what not to do, please don’t do it” is all you can do) but also I don’t really want to be out here like “oh man this person currently sucks”… over a five year old post that just got popular again. (Some people’s five year old posts AND their present selves suck, but I’d like to know what’s what before I dive in or reblog with snark in the tags.)

I like being right and smug about being right (but like internally, don’t worry) and that sort of thing kind of makes it difficult to be both of those things.
