Not planned Change Phrase "A moment ago" to "A second ago"


Well-known member
Both make sense, but I personally think that "A second ago" would be more consistent in terms of time because of "1 minute ago" and "X minutes ago."

I know this can be easily edited, but obviously I'm suggesting it to be in the default core.

Changing the phrase to your suggestion would be incorrect.

The definition of a moment is "a very brief period of time". That brief period is undefined but fits in with the use here on XenForo of less than a minute.

A second is a fixed period of time. It's 1 second.

Using "a second ago" when something happened several seconds ago would clearly be wrong. Using "a moment ago" however would be correct.
