    I whish it would be possible to change or chose date format in the General Settings. I would prefere format YYYY-MM-DD (or DD-MM-YYYY).

    It is confusing with dates like 12-09-2012. To me that is September 12 2012 but here in this forum it means December 9 2012.

    If it is technicly possible to add this feature it would be much appreciated.

    I support the request for such an option in the General Settings, although I must say that I read 12-09-2012 as September 12, 2012 :).

    I'm in the UK and even after a couple of years on these forums find it takes a second or two each time to fathom the date!

    Oops, for once I am wrong! Can´t remember when that happened last time :D:D:eek:!

    Naturally 09 is September, even here in Sweden! Sorry about that. Won´t happen again.

    Yes, that´s right. I have been told to have a short memory.
