Americans hate the 24-hour clock and 'backwards' date formats.

It's exactly the other way around for Europeans :D (unless you're a weirdo from the U.K., of course :P)

The US is in the minority for using 12 hour format. I'm used to 24 hour time myself, and prefer it on all my clocks when I have the choice. But we may get a lot of complaints by switching to 24 hour time, as 40% of our visits are from the US.

 

Not seeing any available addons for this, so will put on my list of things to attempt to work up to provide a user option.

from the IPB admin:

 

In 3.x 12 hr vs 24 hr format is a global setting.

 

In 4.x, this is determined by the locale associated with a language pack that the user has selected.  In other words, the concern you raise should be resolved in our upcoming 4.0 release.

That's not half bad. Let's hope the next version won't take a year to be released :D

No, re-read the quote. It will assume what you prefer based on your location ... so much for European Americans :P

It still doesn't make any sense to make it automated, but it's better than nothing.

Go figure. Their calendar allows users to choose the time format. Why this wasn't carried into the forum is odd.

Actually it says based on your locale which in windows is what language set you have, mine is set to English (United Kingdom). Unless they are adding a spell check locale or something.

I am. I still prefer the British wording conventions. Colour instead or color etc.

I prefer the more sophisticated and 'correct' grammar of the British but the more sensible and phonetic spelling practices of American English (which are still not always phonetically accurate either).

Yes but one can not have their dialect and eat it too. Or at least that's more or less what every english teacher I've had said when I went on to tell them how I felt about it. Of course, maybe telling them they were wrong was why I always got 89% for my english classes... food for thought I guess.
