Stop using U.S.A Date format of mm/dd/yyyy PLEASE
I am formally requesting that if the site can't determine which country the site is loaded in and displays the date format according, then all dates no matter where, should clearly indicate with the month as a string not a number like July 4th, 2016 or 4th July 16.
If i was to ask a none U.S.A. client what 3/5/16 was, I would get a reply the 3rd of May 2016, and I would be providing wrong and incorrect information, specially if client needs to know an expiry date, contract date or when something is due. Non U.S.A customers can find this misleading and incorrect and have every right to make a complaint or even worse.
The Conrete5 website is available on a world wide platform and can be used by anyone in the world, can you please start running your site with a global community in mind and not be so fixed on being a one country service.
By the way its Internationalisation not Internationalization, its spelled with a S. You set up a forum topic for making concrete5 more international (i guess that means for non U.S.A countries) and you can't even have the decency to respect us non U.S.A countries and spell Internationalisation how the rest of world does.
for good or bad US English is the universal language for most software development.
You can always change the date format.
Hope this helps.
Since concrete5 is a software made in US, I think it's natural to have it American English.
What would you suggest? To switch to British English? So, others would argue that UK is not the center of the world...
Well, the only reason for such a big change that you are giving is because you prefer British English instead of American English.
Me, for one, I'd prefer Italian. So, why shouldn't we rewrite all the concrete5 code in Italian? I'd be soooo happy! Why should someone prefer your language over mine?
BTW, I really don't understand your problem... Having a concrete5 installation in British English is as easy as choosing a value from a drop down menu...
What about adopting the YYYY-MM-DD format? I think that it'd be a solution suitable for everyone...
The Germans get it done to their format if you change language to German.
Though always use letters for month, so less goes wrong.
The most safe solution would be to switch to YYYY-MM-DD: anyone would understand it and nobody would misunderstand it. Anyhow we have live in a real world, and latest language files available at translate.concrete5.org should fix the date/time formats
