1897: The "Posted Time" should be the time of publish

Jan. 21, 2013
What version are you running?


What's the URL of the page containing the problem?


What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. Add a review request.
2. Wait for a while before publishing it.
3. Publish it.
4. Look at the "Posted Time" in the dashboard.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The "Posted Time" currently shows the time when the review request was created, not the time when it was published.  The latter is a more useful metric for determining which review requests have fallen through the cracks and haven't been getting their fair share of attention.

(This admittedly is a pretty minor distinction since the two events usually would happen around the same time.)

What operating system are you using? What browser?

Windows XP x64 SP3, Firefox 3.6.12

Wait for a bit between the time of creation (the time you create the draft) and the time of actual posting. You will see that the Posted column in Dashboard only reflects the time of draft creation, not the time of publishing.
Ive posted a review for this at http://reviews.reviewboard.org/r/3753/
