Description

This applies especially to the dates in the list of threads in BW forum.

In addition, it would help to separate the date and the time of day with a "-" symbol, or something else.


from http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20050808.html, "Measurements and Dates", 3rd paragraph.

For dates, the main guideline is: Always spell out the name of the month. Using a notation like 8/9 is confusing -- is that August 9th or the 8th of September? If you write "Aug. 9" people from all countries will understand it, and it requires only a few more characters. Far better than having customers show up at your hotel thirty days before or after their actual reservations.

I could not explain it better.

as a future vision, we can think of more interesting metaphors to display time - but for now, we should just do the obvious things right!
