how about using the International format ;)

date goes from smallest to largest (day/month/year) & time goes from largest to smallest (hour/minute/second).

I have a nativist preference for the American way, but I can see putting it in international form. The thing is it's as big a deal when something says "May 02, 2013" when it says 5/2/13.

I know there's talk among the developers of moving it over to the right of the Home|Instructions|Scoreboard|etc. stuff. Given that space might be an issue over there, perhaps it should be put in a more international but shortened format. I would recommend: 2013/05/02 15:24:37. Even us dumb Americans could figure out that means May 2 and not Feb. 5 :)

Using a format like 02/05/2013 has the exact reverse consequence of confusion but the victims would be the Americans who make up over half of the site's users.

aren't Americans are normally confused?

if the site wants to expand then the International format would be the default for the majority of new users.

:D

All I'm saying is that putting the four-digit year first and then doing descending order won't confuse anyone, American or otherwise.

This is something that is being worked on on the test site, but there was some issue finding the right place for it and the developers are having to write their own version of it because all of the existing ones that they found had one problem or another, so it was easier just to write their own. But, as with everything, we have to make sure we don't break anything by making that go live on the site. #recurringthemeofrecentimprovements

I always love it when xkcd pops up in this forum. There was a good one a while back about changing the rating system.

What's wrong with "May 12, 2013"? That way there is 0 possibility for confusion.

It needs to include the hours/minutes, too.

Without reading the thread, is the clock going to only show one time (CC time) or will it show local times but allow to link to CC time.

I'd stick with CC. Laptop/Puter users can simply see their local time. Hardly anybody knows what CC time is.

In the United States we post things like this> Month Day then Year
But in some other countries it is Day then Month and Year.
This could be VERY Confusing... But by Using letters for the Month... Dec, Jan, Sept etc. this would not be a problem. and the date can be placed Under the Clock in say 12 pt type so as not to take up too much space.

Without Reading the thread??? :evil:

Look... You have a wrist watch, wall clock and even a clock on your cell phone and at the bottom left of your computer screen tell you what your Local time is.

This is about a LIVE CC WAR CLOCK that puts CC as ONe UNIVERSAL TIME ZONE and DISPLAYS THAT TIME AND DATE.
The Advantages are discussed in the thread you haven't read. :o
