Add a date to hubs

    I think having some sort of 'posted on' would be helpful....  even if it was really small.  I like to know when things were written when reading an article.

    There are pluses and minuses to this - some people might not like it highlighted that their Hub was old!

    I can see positive and negative here...but I'm leaning towards 'no'.  Time/date is important for journalism but what most of us are trying to do here is either provide research or information on a specific topic or entertain...we're not providing breaking news.  I think that a time/date stamp wouldn't do much except lead a reader to believe that a page is outdated...when that might not be (probably isn't) the case.

    THanks Elisabeth and Marisa.   

    I'm just a fan of knowing when a hub was published.  Maybe a 'date' capsule should be added!   

    Then the author has a choice.....

      You could always add the date to your hubs if you chose to?

    I asked about this a while back. I pretty much saw that most people didn't like the idea. You can manually type in the date. That's what I've done if the hub called for it.
