Last month in the Windows Live Team Blog Post – A few changes to the blog, I had suggested in the comments as-
Yes, these additions are nice and were required as ‘get help’ , ‘download Essentials’. Also I would also like to see the ‘year’ along with Date and month for blog posts, like for this one, April 13, 2009. many times we come across a direct link to blog posts and when opened doesn’t have the ‘Year’ info. So I think this is also a must for any blog post…………..
Replying to this,

@Vasudev – Good suggestion for including the year in blog posts. I have changed the date format (on Spaces General Options page) so now it shows the year………..
Thus this suggestion of displaying ‘year‘ in the Spaces blog Post was included in Windows Live Team Blog
Thanks to The Windows Live team for implementing my suggestion. And thus I also came to know about this option and I too immediately implemented this in my Spaces blog to display the ‘year’, but I did not blog about this at that time.
If you are a Spaces Blog user, I would also suggest to implement this. Just sign-in to your Spaces, and goto ‘Options’ > ‘General’
And choose the ‘Date and Time Format’ which shows the Year along with Month and date.
That’s all and your Spaces Blog Posts will show the ‘Year’ also.
This feature is very useful when we come across any Spaces Blog post link and we open but couldn’t make out when it was published, whether its a new post or old. SO I would also suggest to Windows Live Spaces Team to make this option as default and also provide more ‘date’ Formats so as not to get confused from American and British date format and the best will be to show Post date as , May 12, 2009.
I am posting this Blog post , as I saw Jamie’s similar post- Display the year of publication for a Spaces blog post helped many people.
And Yes, even such small things we learn if posted on blog, helps lot of people.
