Showing Dates of Entries on 12manage

Is there a way to see the date that the entry was made? This would make it more valuable:
1. Whether or not to respond: if recently posted, makes more sense. If posted three years ago, not so much.
2. Relevance to today's world.

When Dates of Entries are Shown

Thank you for your valuable suggestion. In the forum of each knowledge center, the most recent topics are shown at the top (unless you sort them by rating). We do not show dates at this aggregated level as this will distract too much.
After you click and zoom in to a topic, the entry date is shown during 1 month. After this, we no longer show the date, also in order not to distract you from the topic and not to 'demotivate' you to enter a reaction.
Remember, 12manage is different from various social media in that our content is not so short-lived or aimed merely at news. Instead we focus on knowledge creation and knowledge sharing. The information shared on 12manage remains valuable and available for an indefinite time.

Dating versus Dated

A date is useful in that it shows if the commentary is at current or 'background' level.
The notifications from 12manage that there has been a response on a topic does, of course, show currency.
That the initial proposition-question and the responses to it are intended as a long term reference is a major value and key benefit from 12manage participation.
A response a year or even two later (with a date) would, undoubtedly, be made from a different situation-experience, culture etc, and would, therefore, be a valid addition for those people tracking the topic and developments relating to it.
I agree with Jaap that it is the topic and not the date that has the value and so should be responded to.
