Just for Dave (and for those of you who live around the world) there is now the option to customize your date and time formats from your member profile.

You can customize the date by selecting from our current format, our previous format (ie Yesterday / Today) or any format of your choosing by using the PHP date function.

For those of you who are overseas, you can customize the time by selecting between a 12-hour and a 24-hour clock.

Dani,

I thank you most sincerely.

Dave

For those that are missing any background, I've tried to summarize this as "woman giving directions vs man giving directions" and/or "I used to use absolute time (correct or not) as a primary thread navigation tool" and/or "I feel like a cat without whiskers [lurking in forums I lurked in]".

I don't post clearly, so if some can wait, I can attempt to clarify those remarks.

But again,
Thank you, Dani!

[edit]Aaahh.

Yes - you can change your time zone, date format, and whether you want to use a 12-hour or 24-hour clock.

I thought F meant Friend.

I changed CP to show dates/times as they originally were here. But I've become so acustome to seeing Yesterday or Today that I changed it back! I like not having to think about anything. :-O

Mel, try out this format "M jS Y" which is what we had previously -- you shouldn't have any trouble adjusting to it once you set the proper time zone.

Please note that there are two options when setting how a datestamp is created. There is the format, such as dd-mm-yy, etc. And then there is the display.

Normal = always use the datestamp format you selected
Yesterday / Today = use 'Yesterday' or 'Today' but then default to the datestamp format you selected for dates older than 24 hours
'Detailed' = use '1 hr ago' or '1 day ago' but then default to the datestamp format you selected for dates older than 1 month.

That wasn't so obvious... ;-)

You obviously don't use MSN Messenger ;)

Rightly said, I normally don't use messengers but if necessary, Yahoo is the one I go for. And being a proponent of text based smileys, I don't know a lot about the modern ones.

Ah, the kind of imagination you possess. ;-)
