What is this American calendar bullshit? Use Year-Month-Day like god intended.

 No.7603

Seconded with gusto. I could begrudgingly accept day-month-year as well but not going largest-to-smallest units or smallest-to-largest is to be honest pretty schizo. What's even the rationalization?

 No.7608

Critical support for ISO 8601!

 No.7612

Just flip the month and day and remove the spaces around the day of the week to make it look like the boards of old.

>>7603
What the fuck does schizo even mean anymore

 No.7613

standard is standard is standard! and this is a relatively widely adopted one too, so it's not like we'd be just picking one of many possible standards. i fucking DESPISE the use of the fucking TWO DIGIT YEAR, and especially when we are near a fucking MILLENNIUM BOUNDARY. i am also very fucking annoyed that since dd/mm and mm/dd are often used in the same fucking country, it only makes sense if the day is larger than 13. switch this board to ISO or i will start neon-painting your dogs to resemble gay fursonas

Two-digit year looks better though.

 No.7657

>>7602
Hello, I have passed along this suggestion to the tech team, I personally agree that we should switch away from m-d-y, though I don't know whether Year-month-day or day-month-year is better as a replacement. Either way, this will depend on when the tech team can get round to it, but thank you for your suggestion.

Thoughts on this format?
It's basically ISO 8601 with the short Day of Week stuck after the date for convenience.

 No.7666

>>7662
Looks good, timezone would be UTC?

 No.7671

>>7666
It is currently UTC (right?) and that will stay the same. All I did for that screenshot was change the format string and screencap an old test post, that's why it's a different time.

 No.7672

Why don't americans follow a logical Y-M-D or D-M-Y routine ?

 No.7673

>>7602
Why not use the user's browser settings?

 No.7674

>>7673
because then we can't bully the yanks into not using their stupid date format any more

 No.7722

thank you based devs

Non yankee dating now implemented, thank you for the suggestion.

Thanks, science!

 No.7869

Should've gone for slashes like it's always been done instead of this nerdy STEM shit.
