I've noticed that the questions in which the time of the answers is visible are only today's answers. That is, if you click on a question posted yesterday, for instance, the time for the different answers is not there!
If the first two or three answers are OK -and have been suggested at the same time- I usually agree with them all, but now I hesitate to agree with them all since I don't know what time they were posted!
I'm sure there is a good reason behind this change but would like to have it the old way!
Thanks so much!
Agree with Andrea: it was not at all a good idea to remove the time. I also would like to know if all answers arrived at the same time or if someone fed off another person's answer an hour later and tried to make it their own. Without the time, the copycats now have a free hand.
Example: on one site, a number of us answered a question. The next day, another translator added her two cents worth, virtually copying an answer from the day before. But obviously aware that the time slot would disappear, she added, Oh, when I started answering, none of the above answers were there yet. And yet she answered a full 24 hours after the rest! I fully agree with Andrea that the time should stay put and not be removed. I really don't understand the purpose of the change.
