    I have noticed that when I upload a model, there is a mark saying "...originally uploaded on (e.g. 23 Mar 2012) ". I think it would be great if this date mark is shown publicly. In case someone claim that he came up with this design first, the date mark can be a good proof of who is first.

    Actually.. it'd only be the LAST UPLOAD date that would be valid.

    If the site showed only the original upload date, I could upload a simple cube, let it sit in my shop for a year, then copy someone else's design and replace the cube .. and claim that I had "prior art" based upon the earlier date. The Last Upload date is the only date that you can trust as being applicable for the current design in the shop.

    " Last Updated " date mark is good though.

    The 'Last Updated' date used to be public, but I forget when it was removed - maybe add your request to the Feedback Site.

    Hi, I've tried several times in the feedback page, but I was not able to either vote or suggest ideas. Could anyone do this favor for all of us ?

    I'm attaching a screenshot of the feedback page I saw. Browser is Chrome.
