Description

exonerator currently requires the date to be older than 2 days, could this be reduced to 24 hours?

(if that is not possible or is causing to much work, it would be nice to have the limitation shown on the page before the user runs into the error that the timestamp is to recent "Date parameter too recent")

Reducing the delay from 2 to 1 days or even more is possible and wouldn't cause much work. The main reason against doing it is the risk of false negatives. The main reason why such false negatives would occur is when the database has not been updated for a few hours. Another possible source for confusion are time zones.

I could imagine taking out this limitation, but only if we display a very clear warning that the date may be too recent to provide more than a preliminary result.

If this makes sense, I'd like to talk this over with Julius in two weeks, who has provided very valuable input on ExoneraTor's web interface in the past from his experience as lawyer.
