Every website should prominently expose a timestamp that tells the user when it was created.

@martin What would that timestamp refer to? The writing of the content? The act of publishing it? The time when it was rendered (e.g. from Markdown to HTML)?

@waweic
Every website should prominently expose three timestamps specifying when it was composed, published, and rendered.

@martin There was one in early HTML Maybe they're just not showing it. Also you can get last changed dates and checksums from the server headers. Do a HEAD call & check headers & status code to see if the page has changed before any GET call to fetch its large payload.

@martin soon enough, every user will have to prominently expose a timestamp that tells websites when the user was created
