Convert to standard time

Post by imas240 » Fri Feb 24, 2017 5:06 am

We should switch from military time to standard time via /time. Frankly, it would make things a lot easier because pretty much most people use standard time nowadays. Plus it's frankly annoying always having to figure out what time it actually is and then having to convert it to my timezone.

You know you can view your own timezone in /timestamp or tabbing out, right? Anyway, converting for example 15:30 to 3:30 takes 0.5 seconds, unsure of the whole suggestion to be honest.

Should stay, but my reasoning is somewhat selfish. Reports for PD/SD require the time to be in military format. And if you are unsure of the actual time or how to convert, it doesn't take long to tab out and google or use a smartphone. Not to mention its just basic math. To figure out 18:00 just do 18-12, 18-12=6, so its 6:00 PM.

Not sure exactly why it makes a big difference, we uae the 24 hour clock and it's been that way for a while. I highly doubt it will change none the less thanks for the suggestion.
