Well, the Genesis account does define the days as days. There was a Hebrew word that could have been used if GOD had wanted to describe a vague period of time, but He didn't. The word used for day in the Hebrew means a 24-hour day.

I'm still a strict 24-hour days Creationalist. I just believe that science is viewing a skewed version of the events. Either because of a flaw in our system or just the expansion of the universe making those days appear to be billions of years.

I first read about the time dilation theory around 2003, so it's always been a possibility in my mind. I think you are simply misremembering the discussions from the earlier forums.
