    Idee Allowing users to choose their own time or date format?

    It would be nice if we could adjust the format of the posting dates through the User CP. Currently, it's DD-MM-YYYY. I'm far more comfortable with MM-DD-YYYY - as that's what I'm used to - and constantly have to remind myself of the different format, but I don't see any way to change it through the CP. Any chance of getting Jelsoft to fix that? Or is there maybe a configuration setting in the board you can change to enable that option?

    DD-MM-YYYY is the European format. So I guess it is set like that because the DT Team lives in Europe.

    I realize that, but it should be possible for individuals to change it for their view. We can change the time to our own timezone, so there's no reason we can't change the date format to our own.

    I received already ALOT of this requests, most via email.

    We maybe implement it as own unique feature to portal,
    as I agree that it is a bit incomfortable for american users.


    And soon we add also alot more functionality to our portal
    here anyway, so it is definitly on my to-do list. I hope this is
    what you hoped to hear
