    Wink Localisation

    I while we are at it. I saw my post being generated at Today, 05:41. I normaly am sleeping at that time. Then I saw the PM (what is that again? ). I choose my timezone, can't I choose my date/time display to be an immidiatly understandable string?

    I see you are in GMT +1. Choosing your timezone in the User Control Panel should make all displayed times relative to your time. I'm not seeing the AM/PM issue you report. The default server time is Mountain Time where the server resides so guests and new users that haven't selected a time zone will see that one. I could change that to GMT. Post a screen shot of a time display you see as not being correct so I can understand what you're seeing. Thanks for the report.

    It is now 19:44 on my system. See your reply in the screenshot. Must be about one hour ago. It reads 6:43 PM.

    It is not the time that is wrong, it is how it is shown. Not 07:56 PM, but 19:56 (not the timezoneis wrong, but there is no Localisation). Btw it now 19:51, so it is at least 5 mins off.

    You could paste it to one of these sites:
    * PicPaste - public beta v5!
    * TinyPic - Share the Experience!
    * ImageShack - Image Hosting
    and then copy the URL here.

    Thanks for your support in tracking this down.

    I concur, I'm seeing all the times represented in 12H format despite changing options.

    The date/time display options for vBulletin are global to the server and not configurable on an individual basis. It's also not tied to your profile in openSUSE login. Currently the sever time display is set for AM/PM display format. Does this answer the question?

    Glad I at least got that about NTP all right.

    The whole bussiness about being in the right timezone is rather useless in my opinion when you can not grab the time indication at a glance.

    We are not 24 hours into our history now, but may we expect to see totaly ununderstandable dates (except for those who happen to know where the server is placed and what the local habits are)?
