    God dammit America! Be like the rest of us :p

    But yeah, is there an option to use a non-American date format (dd/mm/yy)? I couldn't find one.

    I know :rolleyes:

    Another issue is for colour tags you have to remove the "u" from colour to get it ti work :(
    Anyway its minor
     
  4. It's minor, but those issues are embarrassing to me as an American. We are in the minority in the world with regard to some true English word spellings, and the date format. In addition, non English speaking nations teach English, with proper English spelling, etc, not American spelling and date format habits.

    I'm sure that most forum operators based in the U.S. are going by the majority of users of their sites, but the least that they could do, in the user configuration choices, would be to offer alternatives which reflect the majority of English speaking country's usage, in my opinion.

    Would just be nice to change the date format in the forums so that the month was a 3 letter word and not a number. Would make it readable by everyone then! But as a UK guy I find the dates very confusing to read, and do not understand why the date format option has been turned off in VB? Maybe a skin issue I guess.
