Yeah, this was changed.

I wanted to change the date format to a less ambiguous one (Previously, the US style month-day-year was used), and I saw vB had the option to display this format ... I liked it so here we are

Personally, I find it more intuitive, most of the time you don't care when exactly a post was made, but more how long ago it was made (A subtle difference).

Unfortunately, it isn't an user option ...

Anyway, if more people dislike it, send me a message or reply to this thread, and I'll change it back ...
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
