Why does 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.

@woozle @nextcloud It's the style that's most commonly used in the UK! I wonder if it was made by british people.


@BillieCodes Huh! I thought UK used yyyy/mm/dd for numeric dates.

I guess it's parallel with the UK spelled-out convention of "2 Feb 2020"?

@woozle It's in particular with the "/", in germany it's the same except with "." so 2.2.2020

@woozle It's still a stupid format, it should be all ISO all the time!
