24 hour time Part two

SiobhanSiobhan Posts: 14,442 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix
I find it hard telling the 24 hour time and it’s pissing me off. And I know probably thinking well learn it and and I have tried. It just doesn’t stick in my head and the boards  have Been 24 hour for awhile and thought would help me learn it but hasnt. Everyone can tel 12 hour time so I don’t suppose anyone wants to change their vote from the other thread lol https://community.themix.org.uk/discussion/comment/3655663#Comment_3655663
 After readin this. No worries if not. No pressure. Just fed up of feeling annoyed at myself for feeling stupid when I don’t understand it

    I’m the total opposite in that I’m much more comfortable with 24 hour time - it’s what my phone is and has always been set to, so it eventually just stuck in my head. If you subtract 12 from the first number you get the 12 hour equivalent :)

    Oh. But you understand the 12 hour time tho?
    i don’t understand the 24 hour time and I don’t like to do maths to just find out the time lol

    Yeah I understand 12 hour time. It would be great if this could be changed by each individual person, but from what I remember, it would have to be universal across the boards. 

    I think if it changed I’d actually be a bit confused? IDK. That’s just what I think though I’m a bit weird when it comes to numbers lol

    To be honest, I’m a wee bit slow and sometimes have to work out the 24 hour time :lol: It takes a little longer but I can work it out.

    12 hour would personally be easier but It’s not a big deal for me so I’m pretty easy either way.

    it would be ideal if we had an option in our settings to set it to either 24 or 12 hour but know that may not be possible.

    This was voted on under a different section of the boards and the majority was to keep the 24 hour time as more people preferred it.

    I am aware why said the part two. Just don’t think it’s fair when everyone understands 12 hour time but not everyone knows 24

    It’s not that we don’t care Shaunie, I understand where you’re coming from totally. But it was a vote after all, and because it’s universal it’s kinda a majority thing.

    Yeah but most people probably just put 24 hour time cause used to but wouldn’t care less when I care and this site does go for younger people too who are used to 12 hour

    I only would say 24 hour time as 12 hour time confuses me so much, am and pm take me ages to figure out which is which (and can be quite distressing if I get them mixed up, for example 12 am and 12 pm are very confusing to me) whereas with 24 hour time I look and it's simple. I know that's not the case for everyone but 12 hour time does take longer and much more thought and concentration for me personally.

    Surely everyone knows 12 how clock unless you have never used a clock before. that's how you get taught time. I used to get confused on if 12:00 was an or pm. In day or night. But yeah that's only one minute of the day

    Thanks for your patience on this one @Shaunie (and anyone else waiting for staff to chip in). We're actually exploring whether it's technically possible to have an individual setting for this, and we'll let you all know if anything comes of that. It feels like that's the ideal option here. :)

    We are also considering whether we want to go with the more accessible option regardless of what the majority vote is. 12 hour time won't be more accessible for everyone as @Starlight pointed out, but it might be more universally accessible than 24 hour, meaning it could make sense to make that switch just in the interests of making the community easy to use for the majority.

    Once we know whether or not we can have this as an individual setting, we'll go from there. If we can't make that happen then it's very possible we move to 12 hour time.

    Rest assured we do care @Shaunie, and we are exploring what we can do. As @independent_ said, these sorts of things tend to be majority votes but in this case, we are putting a lot of weight on the accessibility of both options so it might not be as simple as a vote. :)

    Just reading my comment back and sorry for sounding rude @Shaunie I sounded like I was just being difficult, I didn’t mean for it to come across that way at all.

    Nice thinking @Aidan! Definitely an option for sure.

    @Starlight not at all - your input was super valuable and you weren't rude. :)

    Yeah we should do what you can read as not really fair. I feel so stupid everything I’m struggling to work out

    So frustrating everytime i don’t know just simple time 

    everyone can read 12 hour time so just kinda annoying tbh but understand mike is trying

    I don't read 12 hour clocks lol. I can't read them properly because it's not what I grew up with. I grew up with miliary time which is 24hrs

    Oh sorry. 

    But you can read them tho? Just don’t usually ?

    Do you not ever read a clock then, watches or any clock?

    Sorry hope not seeming rude. But just trying to understand why it would bother people so much if it was 12 hour -every one can read it then.

    Actually got a point  @The Mix
    You use 12 hour time when you say when group chat is on. So why not lol.

    Like I've said. I've grown up with 24 hour clocks. 8 is the morning. 2000 is evening.. 6 is morning.. 1800 is evening that's how I read time.  digits up till 12 is morning. Digits after 12 are afternoon

    Yeah I’m just interested. So Do you calculate it to 24 hour time if someone says that?

    I'm not fussy like and i really don't mind either way.... but personally, i do find 12 hour time much easier. Sometimes i have to work out 24 hour time and it makes me feel a bit daft but then again, i can't tell the time on a clock either. :lol: Would be greattt if we had options to change it as there's obvs different opinions.

    But just so that you know @Shaunie you're not alone in not fully understanding 24 hour time :smiley:

    No because I don't need to if I've been up from 0600 hours then if someone says it's 6..it's not because Ive not been to bed.
    There's 24 hours in a day. Not 12 hours in a day

    Ah finally!  

    This is what I feel like everytime someone says how they’re feeling or posted . And I’m like ohh 33000000 time what does mean. (Obvious over eggration) then I’m sat there working out if they’re said that one hour ago or what and if they’d still need support on it if they just wrote it then they may see my reply straight away. If makes sense. Every single time and I’m thinking omg I’m so stupid why won’t it stick in my brai

    When asked in PM The Mix said 


    “ Thanks for getting back to us. You are right, everyone does know how to read 12 hour time, I hadn't actually thought of that. It makes sense that you are feeling confused about peoples response. I wonder if they haven't thought about that yet either? ”

    So that’s why I’ve still got it in my mind everyone can read it so now I am super confused
