The heck with "5000 replies" - give me dates and times!

As I try to get used to the new format, I have some suggestions on how to improve the friendliness and usefulness of the summary:

- The summary should include the date of the original post.

- The number of replies should move out of the left-most, "this is the most important info" location (following or under the post title, perhaps).

The number of replies is useful only as a relative gauge of a topic's popularity. The only meaning values are "none", "some" and "lots". I suspect I'm not the only person who can't memorize how many replies each topic has received.

- If possible, the date of the most recent reply, along with who posted it, should be included in the summary. This would help people decide whether they want to read the post.
