Only just joined the forum but have noticed that all the comments are dated in American fashion, ie: Month before date. What's wrong with the good old British way - day follwed by month? I was born on the 10th of July, 10/07 - but in Americanese that would be 07/10.Too many of our newspapers have already adopted this confusing American style, must we do so here in Wigan?

It is actually the forum default way of displaying dates, but you can change it.

If you go to your profile, and scroll down to the 'Date Format' section, in the text box replace what is there with this...

F j, Y, g:i a

.. it will them format the date as used in the UK. IE. January 26, 2008, and the time as well.

If you just want the date in numerical format put this in instead...

j, n, Y

... this will give you 26.01.2008

There are many ways to do this actually...

d/m/y

Will give you 26/01/08.

d/m/y g:i a

Will give you the time as well.... 26/01/08 06:50am

Usually I don't actually get up. Very Happy I get home from work at about 4:30am and this is my quiet net time.

However, I am off this week. But my body is still on nightshift hours! Laughing
