    12 hour clock?

    Not to be critical, but is it possible SPF would consider changing to a 12 hour clock? I don't mind the 24, it's just not as easy to read at a glance.

    I realize this is an old thread but I've got to agree. Could a 12-hour clock setting at least be added as an option?

    I certainly hope SitePoint won't change to a 12-hour clock!
    Those of us living in the civilized parts of the world are capable of counting all the way to 24, and find it quite annoying to have to look at the am/pm indicator and try to remember which is which.

    Offering a 12-hour clock option for the backwards nations is fine by me, though.

    12 hour clocks are especially annoying for us insomniacs..

    24 is easy.. Lots of americans / canadians have asked me to do 12hour on my old sites... They dont seem to be able to use 24hour clocks (no offence like )

    I like the 12-hours style, cause the 24H system reminds me with military clocks

    I contemplated surrounding the whole post with <tongue-in-cheek>...</tongue-in-cheek>, but decided to see if anyone would react.
