Ask HN: Can we have full dates on Hacker News stories/comments when hovered?

It looks like "2 days ago" is the most detailed timestamp format you can get from the posts on Hacker News.

Can we add <a title="2017-03-27...."> to the timestamp labels please so that when we hover, it shows the actual date?

Looks like a good idea. I prefer "1 day 22 hours 13 minutes".

Anyway, it's better to send the suggestions to the mods by email hn@ycombinator.com because this threads are most of the times unnoticed.

I'm not a big fan of hover over since it doesn't work on mobile.
