I participate in the http://mangolassi.it community and just noticed that if you hover over the "replied about 18 hours ago" text, you see the actual timestamp. Great little gem. Can it be set to show something more readable though?
If you were interested in subcontrating the work to the nodebb team I'd be happy to look into it. I wouldn't mind giving you a discount on our rate for things that are on my todo list as well, since I'll be building it eventually. Email us at [email protected]
If not, I'd be happy to accept any pull requests to this repo and/or the cash plugin. Even if it isn't 100%, maybe if you start it I can help point you in the right direction
Some kind of paging function would also be good for mobile devices where RAM is frequently at a high premium.
NodeBB causes not-infrequent browser crashes on my iPad2 on longer threads. When I click a link that takes me to the 60th post in a thread or something, there is a long delay as the slower browser begins by loading the op oldest posts in batches. It would be good if there were a way to make it skip doing that and take me directly to the unread posts (without switching the full application to paged mode).
Perhaps on mobile devices you could add a secondary navigation bar with the paging functions (arrows, "displaying X-Y of Z", etc).
