Hi, I'd like to switch forum to show dates in some sane format, like yyyy-mm-dd, but I can't. Also, I have to use this strange AM/PM system, where can I switch to 24h clock?

I posted this already in one thread before it was locked :)

Totally agree with you, this feature is much needed for us Europeans :)

I am not sure of the options, but try investigating the profile config options and post back what is possible, maybe giving some specific examples of what you are seeing and where you are seeing it.

The trouble is there are no settings for that at all. Just like on Nexus, btw.

And there was on MyBB boards?

 

EDIT: Now I see there there was. Hmmm, will look into this.

There are no user options for configuring time format unfortunately. We can change it board wide, however. I personally prefer 24 hour time format as well.

Is this functionality (to customize it in any, even the smallest way) really not present in this forum software at all?

Not at the user level, which is very odd indeed.

There's one more thing somewhat related to date and time.

Not sure about others, but I absolutely despise the retarded "today/yesterday/two weeks ago" instead of proper exact date. It sneakily became de facto a standard on majority of forums over the past years, but I just can't get over it. In my opinion, it sucks ass. I want to know exactly when, not a vague "about half a year ago".

 

If this could be customized, I would be really, really grateful.

@Octopuss: I'd like it that way too, but luckily at least you can mouseover on date and receive post time in all standard goodness, eg. your last post: [font="Consolas, 'Lucida Console', monospace;font-size:12px;"]2014-03-01T11:43:16+00:00[/font]

If there is a possibility to switch to 24hour time format, I'd welcome that as well.

I would really want to keep the 12 hour time format for myself (because that's generally what I'm used to), but allowing you to switch at the user level would be grand.

That's exactly what I meant - let the users configure it the way they are used to.

I really don't mind either way. I grew up in a city with a huge military base, so both are like second nature to me. I mean just subtract 12 to anything over 12 and you get PM.

Americans hate the 24-hour clock and 'backwards' date formats. They just aren't used to it unless they were in the military.

 

I couldn't care less either way, but we will have a lot more complaints if we change it I think.

 

I put this question in to the IPS community staff. Still waiting for a proper answer.
