24 hour or 12 hour time?

edited July 2020 in Fix The Mix
So it was recently mentioned that having 12 hour time might be more accessible than 24 hour. :)

Currently, we use 24 hour time. Of course, not everyone is able to read 24 hour time easily or at all for a huge number of potential reasons. We have the option to switch time formats depending on the general consensus, but if you're not fussed either way there's an option for that.

What do you think we should use?

    Thanks everyone! Looks like we'll hold off on this for now and stick with 24 hour. :3

    Ffs lol thanks

    havent seen this. How lol. But Now I’m more pissed off it’s not changing 
    😂

    whys this fair. Everyone can understand 12 hour time. 😭 @Mike @The Mix

    edit. - I also think cause the altogether the “12 hour” and “I don’t mind” adds up to more than the 24 hour. We should do 12 hour seeming everyone can tell the 12 hour one

    I don't think it should be changed if the majority vote was for 24 hour clock. Sorry..

    It can always be reviewed in several months time

    @Shaunie I'm really sorry you're finding this hard, I know it's frustrating when it seems others don't understand.

    I know you said you dont like having to subtract 12 to find out the time but it might be easier if you just subtract 2 and ignore the first number if you know its the afternoon. For example if it says 1500 then it's 3 o'clock because 5-2=3. Does that help at all?

    Yeah thanks but that’s kinda how i do maths /subtract things but I still don’t want to stuff maths in my head just to find the time lol.

    Let’s face it if it’s going to be a universal setting, there are going to be some people it’s not going to suit. Just like I’d be confused if it changed to 12 hour, others like yourself don’t like 24 hour. Because it can’t be changed by individuals, I suppose we have to go with the majority vote.

    @Eleanor I love that method!
