Thread dating

Not everyone using this forum is in the USA.

The USA system is very confusing to the rest of the planet, because it doesn't make a lot of sense: The units aren't in order.

Days are parts of months are parts of years i.e a dating sequence that runs dd/mm/yyyy. Which is what you find outside the USA.


There is an ISO date system (yyyy/mm/dd) which is logical and fair to everyone.

That is the one that ought to be used in any international forum, not just this one.

Thanks for your suggestion!


You can change the way this appears by going to "my profile" then selecting the "preferences" tab. Scroll down and you will see "date display format".


Change to the desired format and click on save


We will consider moving to the ISO standard for everyone and appreciate your input
