The Javaranch forum started ti use something like this.
It is great.
I don't even have to log in and I have all times in my zone (and format).

I think this would be great addition to 3.1 (3.1 is already using HTML5, so why wait for 3.2 for this?), but instead of <span> use <time> tag like this:

Code: Select all

<time data-time="1234567">01 Oct 2011</time>
where 1234567 is a raw number that could be converted to correct format with javascript.

It would also solve issue #2 in this post

I went to the phpbb 3.3.0 demo site and the date is in foreign format and timezone. (same for time)

Some steps have been done here, just the JS side is missing.
