Could different date format options be implemented?

Is there any chance we could have the option to set the date format to something other than MM-DD-YYYY? Many of us use the DD-MM-YYYY format.

I see it is mentioned in the vBulletin manual (I assume the forum software is vBulletin): vBulletin Manual but doesn't seem to be implemented here.

As does most of the world. USA needs to bring itself in line with everyone else.

And METRIC! Just go metric. Easier and better.

After all, why do you think they sell cannabis in grams? :beatnik:

Easy for you to say, you are already using those formats.
I have trouble wrapping my head around a fortnight per furlong.

My bike gets forty-eight rods to the hog's head and that's the way I likes it!
Seriously though I'm not sure, I see a way to change it but not to make it an option. Sorry guys, the for the record, I'm in Canada and I use them interchangeably

It will need a mod. to be installed. I see you are using vBulletin 3.8.1 so I'll find out what you need and get back to you.

See User Defined Date & Time Format Display - vBulletin.org Forum

Post 22 on page 2 tells how to install it for vB 3.8

Unfortunately, you'll need to do it again if you upgrade to vB 4. Dunno about vB5 - I'm surprised the software developers don't allow for that but it's not uncommon to be locked into MM-DD-YYYY in a lot of software.

Some are old enough to remember when it was sold as "lids" (ounces)

Yes. Real Acapulco Gold for $10.00 / lid.

Those were the days indeed...

I've never bought any and would have no idea where or how to buy it. I don't even know what it smells like.
