An option on the edit item screen to change publish date to now.

This would be very useful ... what this option does it force an edited item to flow out into the river again and be on top.

Here is one use: you could sign on to ads and browser for an ad you liked and edit it, click the "republish" option and it will become the first item in ads and hense the item we display.

Also you could edit an item for a long time and then when you get it right, republish it. Several blogging packages have this feature.

I think it would be worth the scarce screen space on the edit screen. It would not appear on the add screen.

Also this is not a very difficult thing to program ... no challenges, just three or four lines of code.

which reminds me to put in the new sizing logic .. now where did i spec that out ?

Mark de LA says
Having kept official ships logs and other journals I know that the time of entry is important and sacred. In particular for the UnhackTheBrain project. It maintains a timeline as well as thread (remember threads). I would say that most of what you want could be achieved by a copy and edit - where the main entry becomes the time of the copy.

Seth says
well perhaps there are two dates ... date of creation .. and date of publish\republish ... i suspect that there is a place for both in some feed .. could even show botho on the screen where they are different ... your comment has been duly noted
