  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

    Unless I've missed something, there is no setting to switch to 24-hour time notation (instead of AM/PM). As AM/PM is rather confusing to anyone not used to it, and 24h-notation is the international standard, would it be possible to make that available as an option, so stuff like "Thursday at 7:54 PM" reads "Thursday at 19:54"?

    I looked into it and it's part of the language setting. Xenforo didn't come pre-configured with a 24h option, so I created one. It's a new option in preferences under the Locale tab.

    Thank you for this, I am very much used to 24 hour format, and I hate converting the hours to civilian time, even if that takes like 1-2 seconds.
