    On the phone, it is not possible to see the exact date in relation to the time of writing for hover events such as "offline hover" or "Joined x months agos" and "x months ago". These little things aren't that annoying, but something could be done with them.

    This is by design sadly. There's just not enough screen's estate to put all the data everywhere, and trying to achieve parity leads to terrible user experience on mobile devices.

    Some of this data could be placed elsewhere, but this means you are now implementing "show more" buttons and modals that pretty much nobody will access, but which explode the code complexity and download weight.

    True arguments, but it may be worth considering that "mobile phones generate at least half of internet traffic." - at least that's what I found somewhere.

    Would it also explode the code system if they just click on it and activate the hover event on mobile?

    It's more like 80%, but how many of those expect 100% feature parity in the UI with desktop?

    In a lot of places those timestamps are also links to content, so more universal way would be needed.

    Just to be clear. I see the problem and I'll keep it on mind when I am working at frontend in future. It's just I don't have a solution for it at the moment. Maybe profile should have detailed activity information on "details" page?

    Good idea.
