    OK, so the old forum software gave users the change to set their own preferences. Unfortunately this software doesn't.

    Right now I have chosen to use the ISO8601 format.

    The only way I could allow users a (limited) choice is to copy the default language, and set a different time format in the other language.

    Please specify if you have any preferences by voting.

    I use this formart ISO8601 (YYYY-MM-DD) for all of my web apps I code, all spreadsheets and everywhere. There is no possible confusion this way.

    I would leave it the way it is. But that's only my opinion.

    I vote for the U.S. format but if its too much work then you can leave it as is.

    I chose the USA format, but not at the expense of tedious work for Arie.
