    Date Format

    Hi,

    I'm very new here and I don't really like making suggestions when I'm such a new member to this great community but I wanted to make a small suggestion about the date format.

    I see the current date in the short hand US format. While it isn't really an 'issue', it can be slightly confusing at times if you aren't thinking about it and aren't from the USA, I'm from the UK and sometimes glancing at the date can be misleading as I think something that says 12/1/13 means the thread was created in January rather than in December.

    I know Vbulletin doesn't give the option for users to change their date format so I was therefore wanting to suggest that the date format be changed to the USA extended format so it would say December 15 2013 that way it isn't confusing for us who don't write the date like that and kinda makes it universal I guess so that others who don't read and write the date in the US format don't get slightly confused. It's probably just me who gets confused looking at it but it might benefit others lol.

    Thanks for reading and I hope you'll consider my suggestion.

    Thank you

    A nice idea I think.
    Im in AUS and a date like 10/12/2013 for me would be 10th December,Not 12th October as it would in other places.
    Anyway,Ill make sure the SuperMods see this topic and see what they think.
