  • Automatic time format and zone handling

    Hi!

    As I am just a user, I can not create issues in JIRA, so I post here.

    In 2011 most users have JavaScript enabled and it is used extensively anyway (like with this text area for entering my message) so I suggest using JS to format displayed date and time on forum pages:
    - gives format (24H vs 12H, etc...) and timezone according to users preferences, with zero configuration on their side
    - works correctly even with DST
    - zero setup for user and forum administrator

    Rough example code (without backend) : http://xerces8.comli.com/timepage.html

    At least use this to provide default timezone setting in the users profile (including feedback saying "Time according to the selected TZ is 21:16" for checking).

    Thanks for your considerations and best regard,
    David
