Events on the map should show date instead of amount of FP

+15 votes

It is bogging me for some time when I see different events on the map(s) and I have no idea when they are taking place. Instead I see that the event has "0 FP (0%, 0W)", which is useless information (events can't get FPs).

Would it be possible to swap the FP information for date of the event to produce another bit of usability? I am particularly interested in the Live Map, but it might be useful even in the others map based tools.

Edit: Adding kitten, ganja1447?

I'm very pleased that someone else has the same gripe. I think it has to do with the date that a cache is set at, as some event caches can indeed correctly show the appropriate date. I don't know how they do that.

That is a good point, but in the meantime you can always go on the 'Coming events' map, where it does show the date of the event in the pop-up information.

Yes. I know about this possibility. I can also click on the cache and wait to open it in the new tab. But it does not solve the problem. When I browse caches around I would like to see useful information.
