I would like to see the date and time in UTC or my own time zone if set when I hover over the vague about 12 days ago to be able to compare when two events actually happened or any other reason.

In some ISO or similar format (YYYY.MM.DD HH:MM:SS TMZ), no bells and whistles needed just a way to get the actual time.

Do you mean on the question list? That does work here on the individual question, but it looks like it doesn't work there and I agree it ought to. Monica Cellio‭ 2 months ago

The only place I have seen a full datetime was when looking at an edit history. None of the time indications have a hover or click, SORRY, MY BAD. I was not hovering for long enough. KalleMP‭ 2 months ago

It appears this functionality is implemented as planned.

You just have to hover for a tiny bit more than an impatient visitor might do the first time and also trust that the date words are an active site even though there are no styling clues.
