Summary:metatag to get only posts uploaded at a certain date ?
Description:Hello there ^^

So, I thought it would be nice to have some way to see only the posts uploaded at a specific date (or after a specific date).
That could help people who want to be sure they've seen everything new (about something specific or not) without getting to see again "older" stuff they've already seen - for example, let's say I've seen "everything" up to three days ago, now I could ask to browse only through what has been uploaded since then.

I also want this, but I doubt they have the know how or drive to make it happen.

Since New Tags are Added every day for existing Images that have been here for Months, I don't see how the current scheme could make that a possibility.

Your Idea is Very Sound, but I highly doubt it would work under the current tagging structure and Conditions of Gelb Concerning it's limited sorting abilities.

In the Mean time, we'll Just have to Wing it with:
Tag sort:updated:desc.

Actually each Post entry already has a created_at="Thu Feb 11 23:32:18 -0600 2010" date unrelated to the tagging system attached to it (as accessible by the xml API). Unless indexing that column is a large strain on the performance due to database layout (~660000 4 byte integer unix timestamps) making it searchable or sortable should -theoretically- be trivial.
