UTF convert page needs a date

Title
UTF convert page needs a date

Short, concise description of the idea
The UTF conversion page, http://www.livejournal.com/utf8convert.bml , mentions that LJ converted to unicode some time in the past, but does not give the date of that conversion. The page should mention when LJ converted to unicode.

Full description of the idea
The UTF conversion page, http://www.livejournal.com/utf8convert.bml , mentions that LJ converted to unicode some time in the past, but does not give the date of that conversion. The page should mention when LJ converted to unicode. So should all other pages linked from that page which deal with the unicode conversion issue.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allows people to know if they've been on livejournal long enough to need to use the conversion tool.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • LJ's conversion to unicode may not have been all at once, requiring a data range, or otherwise confusing people.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Add text giving the date of LJ change to unicode to http://www.livejournal.com/utf8convert.bml , pages linked therefrom, http://www.livejournal.com/settings/?c=OldEncoding and possibly other pages.
