    Date format


    Is there an option to change the date format displayed in the thread? Currently its set to the American standard which confuses some of us, so it would be nice to have the option to see how the date is displayed. If its already possible to change the date format, my apologies for starting this thread and would appreciate it if someone can show me how to change it to DD/MM/YYYY. Cheers.

    I'm pretty sure that only Core Wizard has the powers needed to fix/change the date format. From what I can gather by looking at this thread, he would need to add another language so that users have a choice of format:

    You joke, but I always found the metric system to make more sense when we studied it in school. I actually wouldn't mind a nationwide swap.
