    The US, not sure if Canada or not, use the Month/Day/Year calender, which is purely because of how they say the date, which is fair enough of course.

    The rest of the world and the US military use the more logical 'smallest to highest denomination', Day/Month/Year and I was wondering if we could have that choice in our Profile pages. I think the Japanese and northern European countries use year first, then month, then day. We all know they are just weird though :O (!)

    Thanks GAIS!

    Year Month Day Hour Minutes Seconds makes the most sense when you think of sorting things really. I like Month Day Year cause thats how proper English for saying the date i guess or what is common at least.

    Sorry guys but its simply not an option you can individually set at this stage. We are limited by what the forum "engine" allows us to customise, though that said, we will look into this further and see if there is anything we can do to allow individual settings. We can set it globally but then the question is who's preference do we pick? Currently it's set to default. I'll discuss it with Van and we'll decide from there.

    Personally, I prefer dd/mm/yyyy myself as thats what I was brought up with, and I've been caught a few times when its been mm/dd/yyyy, so I understand your pain.

    Probably Y-M-D would be a trade-off for everyone. Those who're used to MDY would see M and D in familiar order, and others would clearly see where is the M and where is the D.

    It is easy to solve - choose the names of months, not numbers ;)

    Interesting ideas both of you, I'll consider them when I look at it further.
