#softwareGripe Why does #Nextcloud use such a totally weird-ash date convention (dd-mm-yyyy) that is, like, the worst possible combination of the US and EU systems?

And why isn't it _configurable_? Yes there is a date configuration item in config.php, but the format it defines is "'F d, Y H:i:s'" -- which... I don't even know where that appears in the UI. The place where this comes up is in the popup where you set events (screenshot attached), and that's "d/m/Y" (and yes, I've searched the server source repository on GitHub -- no matches).

I'll dive into the code eventually, but... this should be configurable, at the very least.

I think yyyy/mm/dd is more logical... but I agree... give people the option to configure things as they wish, @nextcloud

I would lke to express a hard agree on yyyy/mm/dd, in case that wasn't clear. Seems like it should be the default unless you explicitly choose some other format at setup.
