24 hundred hours in the forum

Postby rstegeby » Fri Feb 11, 2011 1:10 pm

Hi,

It would be great to make it possible to have 24 hundred hours on the forum instead of AM and PM.

Could this be fixed?

I don't see any option to allow users to select what they want. I doubt if the majority of the users are going to prefer the 24 hour format.

I will most definitely support the 24 hour format. Most Americans (virtually the only country in the world that doesn't use 24 hour format by default) do not know the there is no such thing as 12:00 am or pm, it is properly 12:00 midnight or noon.

Is this just your opinion or do you have a source you can cite? We could also speculate that there are also going to be a number of Americans who do not understand the twenty four hour clock.

I pay very little attention to the time that a post was made. It's working for me as is.:D

I wouldn't mind a 24 hour clock either, but vBulletin only allows a single system-wide clock format for all users, so we get what we get by those who setup the forum.

While this may be technically true, computers, digital clocks, cell phones, NIST, the Oxford Dictionary, and many other sources and standards in the US define noon as 12pm and midnight as 12am.

Still, there are formats to change the date to look a certain way, but not the make the time from 12 hours to 24 hours..

It's just to bad, since it's alot easier to keep track of time for some of us :)
