When viewing a user profile for a mostly inactive user (For example, akmad), the activity displayed goes back multiple years, but there is no year value for "ancient" activities and it does not make sense.....

enter image description here

Note how in the above picture, it appears the sort-order is wrong because the Jan 12 stuff happens after the Jan 19 stuff (and the Jan 19 stuff actually happens in different years - making it look like the user got Yearling badge twice in a year?). Also, the Dec 17 stuff appears to happen after the Dec 24 stuff).

To be consistent with other date values in Code Review Stack Exchange, the dates older than a year should have the actual year value displayed, so the Dec 17 date should be unchanged, but the Dec 24 date should include the year 2015, etc.

    \$\begingroup\$ Shouldn't this be a feature-request? I see it on SO as well. \$\endgroup\$ – Jamal Mar 24 '18 at 0:15

    \$\begingroup\$ @Jamal bug tag info says: "Indicates you've found an erroneous or unexpected behaviour in the system that needs to be fixed." ... I Consider this both erroneous and unexpected - it is giving misleading information. There's a big difference between saying "I joined the site on the on the 31st October", and "I joined on the 31st October 2013". \$\endgroup\$ – rolfl Mar 24 '18 at 0:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ @rolfl Jamal is right that it's global issue of every SE site. This has been asked on main meta with feature-request tag. \$\endgroup\$ – Vadim Ovchinnikov Mar 29 '18 at 15:34
