Word on the StreetEdit

Seems like the field is more or less in free-fall - it's not until well after the impact that one can be sure to have reached rock bottom.  I have been a more or less interested observer for 9 years or so, and this is easily the most anemic job list I have seen in that time.  Rather like constant acknowledgements of the hottest year on record, this appears to be the new normal.  

Question for page administrator: Some pages have the date that something was posted visible in the Recent Activity section. Would it be possible to have this for our page, too? Feel free to delete this if this isn't possible. Thanks!

  • A: there was a recent recalibration of the RSS / Activity Feeds due to a system glitch. Wikia was able to fix it, but the date function is still not working. I have alerted them to the issue, but they were not able to fix it immediately. So for the time being, dates will not be generally visible in the feeds. If you click the link to specific edits in the feed, you will be able to find the date when the edit was made. If the issue is fixed, hopefully we will be able to return dates to the feeds. Apologies for the inconvenience. --Una74 (talk) 15:24, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
