I was recently inconvenienced by Titles or Question bodies that say "a couple of days ago", "Yesterday" or "Today" because I was forced to scroll down to see question asked date and do some mental math.
As such I changed the questions' titles to reflect the actual date in question:
- Unity Top Bar and Launcher disappeared Feb 24/2018
- Top Menu Bar and Launcher Disappeared after July 20/2016 update (16.04 LTS)
- 17.10 will not boot after Feb 26/2018 update
My thinking is that people looking for other questions about a recent update would prefer solutions addressing similar situation rather than a question 2 years old that had different OS version.
Are there negative consequences of an explicit date in the title?
