Description

https://metrics.torproject.org/relay-search.html?search=176.31.156.199

shows some stanzas where it's been up recently. But it isn't obvious whether there are any missing stanzas at the top. That is, you have to do a timezone conversion in your head to figure out if your relay is down.

Should we put a time-in-gmt towards the top? Or should we do something even more obvious, like add a "missing from the last 6 consensus documents" note?

Good idea. I put the following note above search results: "Most recent consensus in database is from 2013-06-16 16:00:00." This has the additional advantage of allowing users to check that the database is up-to-date.

I also pondered putting a "missing from the last 6 consensus documents" note on the page, but that would be misleading when limiting searches to a certain month or date. Sure, we could take out the note in those cases, but that might also be confusing to users. That's why I decided for the solution above.

Closing, because I think this is fixed now. If you think it's not, please re-open. Thanks.
