Off topic perhaps, but is it possible to add the year to the date stamp on items in the forum, and perhaps archive the oldest, least relevant ones to streamline the blogs a little?
Anything from before the current year will say what year it was posted. As for archiving the older topics, they're there for posterity. Removing everything en masse would destroy a lot of useful archival info.
Maybe I misunderstand? But when I posted on something in April it didn't say a year had passed until after I submitted the post. Before posting the last post from a user only displayed the month and day.
