    Forum Post Date Format

    The dates on the posts are all being show in the US format and not based on the users time zone setting.

    As the USA is a small handful of countries that only use the Month first date formatting, can we see the timezone settings honored like for the rest of the 140 odd countries that use the Day first method of listing dates and while vBulleten are at it, add in the preference to list in the computer formatted date method.

    So to recap...

    1. MM-DD-YYYY HH-MM-SS
    2. DD-MM-YYYY HH-MM-SS
    3. YYYY-MM-DD HH-MM-SS

    for the date formatting.
    Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08)
    Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz... (\\.\ Aug08)
    I want to leave this world the same way I came into it, Screaming, Incontinent & No memory!
    I laughed that hard I burst my colostomy bag... (\\.\ May03)
    Life for some is like a car accident... Mine is like a motorway pile up...

    Sorry... It's a global setting.

    I know its a global setting and thats the problem, if a user is used to a certain date format, then the option for the date format to be displayed in a familiar way should be part and parcel of the delivery of the forum.

    You could reach out to the makers of vBulletin and submit an enhancement request.
