    Post date format.

    The question of the date format shown on posts has recently come up.

    It's a question that pops up on almost every forum now and again.

    Checking back to 2013 I can only find it being mentioned here only once before, about a year ago.
    Which may indicate that members aren't that bothered, (or that they don't know it could be changed).

    So let's have a poll.
    I'll leave it open for a week to see what response it gets.

    Remember though that this is a setting that is controled by the Admin, so it's up to the Admin what display format they set.
    (And they may have a reason for using the current format).

    This is an opinion poll, not a binding vote.

    EDIT
    Uggh, I don't like those poll colours.

    Well the poll was up for 7 days and only got 4 responses.

    2 would like to see the date format changed.
    2 were not bothered which format is shown.

    Looks like everyone else was so not bothered they didn't even vote.

    I'll close this thread.
